Re: Oric Character Generator

Can you give detail a bit.. I am confused .. unsigned char FontName[] = { 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, 0x1,0x2, ..., (for hex) ..... }; I have ascii of char and 8 bytes data for each.

Re: Oric Character Generator

Yes, VB6 :) From my early experience with Oric, BASIC was always my language to choose. later on, GWBASIC, QBASIC, Quick Basic, VB3 and at last VB6. After that, it is beyond my experience like VB.NET etc. Thanks for your compliments ! @ iss, I forget to include MSVBVM60.DLL and COMDLG32.OCX , sorry ...

Oric Character Generator

After a of period of time, I finished one of my dream project of Oric Character Generator for PC. I had chance to do this because I broke my ankle bone. I have to stay at home for another month so I try to build this application. http://puu.sh/rE5hN/13b06ca336.png This utility is aimed to load/edit/...

Re: Article: How to add charsets to your program

Why are you angry? If I had a talent, I would make all those utils, but also a character generator, a sprite generator maybe, a graphic editor which can give output as oric format would be unique as there is not one available yet. I know there are some people among us who can do that. But that's not...

Re: Article: How to add charsets to your program

Yes :) Thats one way to do it.

But for a programmer, its not so complicated to create one utility to do this at once.

There are not much Oric related PC programs and I am sad about this..

Re: Article: How to add charsets to your program

Thank you. Can somebody have talent to write a PC program to utilize this with a GUI? With usage of mouse technology, a character generator program on PC having ability of "save as .tap" ? Lets imagine.. 6x8 grid as I use excel, to design characters chosen from keyboard one by one.. Exporting it to ...

Re: OASIS very very early alpha tech demo

Programming lightpen is not so much diffucult. But natural usage of lightpen is not as as flexible as mouse. i.e. you have to click continuously to keep tracking od the cursor. Once I've wrote a simple program using lightpen emulation to show ability of lightpen. Its so primitive, has lots of bugs b...

Re: OASIS very very early alpha tech demo

In the first versions of sierra games (kings quest, leisure suit of larry etc) user has to write write all the commands as a sentence everytime ( like ASK WINE FROM BARTENDER ). It was so hard to guess what kind of sentence to choose, and writing commands everytime was really diffucult. That's why, ...

Re: A simple utility for character generation

I've made a simpler thing for this too. An excel file with a simple macro to clear cells.

You just write 1 to 6x8 matrix cells to calculate character edition data.

Re: Tyrann 3 ?

:) I am insisting that its not an important issue. Just trying to show a possiblity of a problem. I didn't loose any game progress as it was at the beginning of the game. I'll rebuilt the team and play again. I am using oricutron. Your theory is probably true then. By the way, giving a value to a va...

Re: Tyrann 3 ?

No, I never been in a fight. I just started the game, and tried to look around in the first maze . Then ı closed the game.

I am not familiar with previous games. So I will have to learn many things.

Thank you :)
