Loading a memory block from Basic with ROM 1.0 and 1.1

Hi ! Could anyone help me: I got lots of problems while trying to load a memory block from Basic (redefined characters for instance) with the Oric-1's 1.0 ROM. No problem with Atmos, but Oric-1 keeps returning to the "Ready" or hanging, according to the AUTO mode of the memory block. I think there w...

Oh, by the way, if someone could explain me why the 1st char on the map I display is in reverse video ? I tried to understand but I don't get it ! Also, I got the same loading problem than Soft-Bug when I try to run the program on a 1.0 ROM (Oric-1). I also notice the program is totally bugged on Or...

Hi all,

Well, here's the 1.0 version.
No more "?" on maps.
Level 10 included.

Only weak point: the level 10 notes, they may look strange, but that's a quick and dirty adaptation.

Enjoy !

And the CEO ?

I may be blind, but I realise there's nothing dedicated to the Club Europe Oric, or to CEO-Mag here. It seems André has more and more problems filling the Mag. Maybe a forum about the magasine would: - let people contribute easily by discussing the articles - allow some English readers to ask questi...

Strange loading problem ! Anyway, here's how the program is made: 1 .TAP file holding 2 "programs": - first the basic code, whose 1st instruction is to load the Tyrann maps - then then Tyrann maps As you didn't load the Tyrann maps (by doing GOTO 10), the screen was filled with UUUUU. Glad to hear i...

Just type
RUN
to run the program ;-)
It will atomatically load another file that is appended to the TAP file you donwloaded, there is nothing to load BEFORE ;)

Or download the program again: I have modified it so it runs automatically now.

Cheers

Short reply: you'd have to hack them !
Or try to have a look at Norsoft source files on my old website, but good luck then :?

The easiest way to avoid the loading is to load the game, use Euphoric's F9 key, then restart it when you want to play again.

Tyrann maps levels 1-9

Hi, Years ago, after I solved Amnukor, I thought I'd do the same with Tyrann. Now I face the facts: I don't have enough spare time for this, so I extracted the maps from the TAP file and made a tool (beta version) to view them. Here it is: http://mercenarysite.free.fr/oric/tyrmaps.zip Could anyone t...

Just to close the subject: many people have sound problems with Euphoric under XP. One of the solutions to this problem is to run Euphoric with VDMSound. When I tried loading a game from Euphoric's hardware tape on XP to a real Oric, I forgot this. As I couldn't hear the sound, I didn't think about ...

Ok, tried today, thru IVISIT. A friend played a WAV file generated by TAP2WAV at 11khz, and my Oric was plugged on the other side. We made 3 attempts at various sound level. The Oric loaded the program, with errors sadly, so it's not reliable. We should try some other day with Skype. I'll keep the f...

Skype

Hi, No, I'm not asking for Skype on the Oric ;-) I'm wondering if it would not be possible to link Orics' tape plug to PCs soundcards (well, this is possible of course ;)), and transfer datas between the 2 Orics by CLOADING on one side, and CSAVING on the other, thru Skype. Using PCs and Skype this ...

Hi Fabrice, Thanks for all this information ! What a luxury of precautions, Simon :) Hehe, it's just that I'm no C, ASM, 1.1 ROM expert so...

Are you sure you got 8-bit mono from Cool Edit? Yes, absolutely sure - I've been using Cool Edit for more than 10 years now, and have transfered hundreds of Oric programs with it 8) What about signed or unsigned samples? This I didn't check... I might try again some day with Cool Edit, but anyway w...

1.1 ROM / WAV2TAP - am I drunk ? ;)

Hi there, A few things about tape format... I'm not willing to be boring, I just want to be sure to understand the way things are working when everything's normal, because I'm currently struggling with complicated re-written loading routines...
