If there is a disassembly of an Oric DOS out there then it shouldn't be too difficult to proceed with a design. There's "Sedoric à Nu" but it's in French. I'm not sure, maybe someone translated a few bits into English but I don't know where you could find it (assuming I didn't dream it). I played w...

- Keyboard scanning I recall Micr'Oric issue 6 had a very good article about it (in my beginner's opinion) from Fabrice Broche, the French guru of the Oric in the 80's. It's on pages 10 to 19. You can download it from oric.org: http://www.oric.org/index.php?page=ressources&fille=magazine&sfille=det...

Well I tried again with the latest Caloric, but it still hangs after loading the 1st part (it's a multipart program). I'll send it to you if needed. Caloric on my old P2gHz (from 2002), in large screen, seems rather slow when the screen scrolls. Is the graphic card important ? (mine only has 32Mb of...

So, back to English :) I think Fabrice corrected bugs recently, one being shown by the game MARC (corrected mid-2007). MARC will only run with the latest or previous release of Euphoric. If you use an older version, try MARC: - let the ship explode when filling fuel - then you will have a neverendin...

Don't know if there is any interest in the community for this project, but I am having a lot of fun and learning many things, so I can bet it will be completed. Well, count me in the interested people. There's so little spare time and so many things to do on the Oric that I never manage to focus on...

Good to know you'll be there, Twilighte. You should move to France! (just kidding ;))
Do you know if Fabrice will attend or not?

Le problème est qu'on part de base de code antiques (Caloric dérive d'Euphoric qui à l'origine tournait sous DOS sur 486) J'espère ne pas poser une question qui fâche, mais ne pourrait-on pas essayer de repartir des sources de la dernière version d'Euphoric ? Trop de boulot à refaire ? Fabrice qui ...

Short reply, not sure it's what you're looking for, but here's what the v1.1 ROM does to restore the VIA once a program has been saved (at #E93D)
JSR #E5F5 (erase line 0)
JSR #F9AA initialize VIA
JMP #EDE0 aloow IRQs on T1

Thanks again David, that was exactly what I needed. There's definately a problem with the fast speed recording. I converted the slow speed recording, whose signal looked a little bit problematic too. I compared it to the non-original one I got, it seems very similar, but there are obviously about 20...

Thanks David! Still the same problem though, so it's not a sample frequency problem :( This is at the edge of my knowledge, but I wonder if it could be a phasing problem between the left and right channels on the tape. David, you're going to hate me, but do you have the possibility to sample only th...

There are cav...

I'll try to find some time to update oric.org with it, as soon as I got the 1.0 version working!

If you have no luck with it I can give it another go. There is also a slow copy on the tape if this helps. Well, I realised the V1.0 signal is not good enough, could you try and give it another go? Also, do you have the possibility to sample it at a higher frequency (22 or 44kHz) ? Maybe it would h...

Thanks, that was fast!
After a few tries, I didn't manage to convert it yet, I'll carry on later and let you know.
