Re: OSDK Linux/macOS recent version?

No, they are not, and IMHO this is not good idea. Let's keep OSDK "as is". As I said it's easy to build OSKD for Linux - there are already Makefiles. Checkout http://miniserve.defence-force.org/svn/public/ , go to pc/tools/osdk/main/ directory and try 'make'. May be some tweaking and 3-rd party libr...

Re: OSDK Linux/macOS recent version?

Because of lack of interest I removed it from the public repository else I'm using it every day :). But there is no problem to compile and use OSDK from SVN under Linux. What I've done is to create a makefile based solution which provides an easy way to deal with 'projects' (or kind of). Projects ca...

Re: Oricutron 1.0 (EDIT: Now 1.2)

About the old bug: I think it's fixed, at least I don't have any error messages. Attached is updated version of STORE/RECALL progs - now the generated MATRIZ.tap file is 145 bytes - exactly as in your post but there is difference in tap header '$05 $4D' vs. '$FF $FF' diff.png Please, try with Oricut...

Re: Oric related links of interest

Let's refresh these too: Emul8D is moved to: http://iss.sandacite.com/ My Emul8D is already retired in favor of Oricutron. During last years I've collected lot of raw Oric related info (drafts, pictures, schematics), which wait to be published but for now I don't have that free time. For all curious...

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

Cool! It works with HFE.
I've changed the XRander to OpenGL 3.1 and no more problems with the window manager.

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

Thanks for taking my wish so serious :). I checked the latest release (MacOS High Sierra 10.13.3). It works fine with DSK images. I like especially 'Options' and the way to quick switch RGB/Composite. Screen Shot 2018-03-23 at 21.53.44.jpg But none of my HFE images are working. :( I use the command ...

Re: Connectivity problems...

In all really rare cases when defence-force.org was inaccessible I feel how important is it for me.
Thanks for everything you do, Dbug.

Re: Oric DSK Manager

Build from sources worked for me. There are problems with few images, but most probably the images are bad.
I like the possibility when dropping more images to merge their content. Nice structured application.
Well done!

Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

Attached is the quick hack writedsk2f (source & dos executable). It should always format tracks before writing. It's only proof-of-concept. I agree to wait Fabrice's approval for any further releases! Also having always-format as option is very good idea. In source is implemented a workaround which ...

Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

... the interesting part: writedsk2 first tries to write the sectors and if the operation fails then it formats the track and repeat the writing... He, I was close in my guess, "just" my conclusion was wrong :). Anyway, it's easy to change writedsk2, so it always first formats the track with the in...

Chema, what model is your Oric floppy? Else I guess you are using Silicebit's controller, right?
