Got the battery, you're right it wasn't that far away !
I'm now controlling Elena, and have found the machine to make the cure, but it's out of order, too!

Space 1999 - players area

Hi !

So, is anyone playing Space 1999?

I gave it a try today. Found Helena, the password to the quarantine area, but I'm blocked by a stupid unpowered ZX81 :lol:

Didn't find how to activate it yet!

Oh, I think I was mistaken. I thought you were talking about large stripes that can be seen at the very beginning of Euphoric running, but you were actually talking about the 1-pixel-large stripes that breifly appear when the Oric switches from the boot screen to the welcome message, isn't it? If so...

From a discussion I had with Fabrice years ago, I recall the screen you see when booting is the memory. It depends on the chips used, or something like that. In Euphoric, the boot screen is simulated, and you can choose in the INI file between 3 different boot screens. So there's no link with the RO...

Re: Tip: Styles can be applied quickly to selected text.

NAME OF wholesale ORDER heavy type and GENERAL SYNTAX approximately light-faced letters. Out of curiosity, what French word here was translated into wholesale? I kind of understand "heavy type" = bold and light-faced probably means regular or italics. :-) The right translation would be something li...

on Fabrice Frances' website : the standard system software of the Oric-1/Atmos ( no tape software in Telestrat ) uses a mix of two frequencies That's funny, I never thought about tapes and Telestrat... Correct me if I'm wrong, but there is a tape port on the Telestrat. Anyone knows if that means it...

That would be a great idea, for instance we could create a web page with the "definitive" use of the zero page. As I'd see it, it could be a table with v1.0 and v1.1 columns indicating which routines use each byte. More colums could be added for the various disk operating systems (Sedoric, Jasmin......

Actually, it's the sequel of The Ultra !
The 16 levels of The Ultra are included in the 101 levels of The Hellion :)

Which games are sufficiently original and oric-unique and would be worth converting/updating ? Ooops, I read that too quickly and kept in mind "oric classics" when I gave my answer ! So my list could be shortened to: Zebbie The Hellion (thought it's just another shoot-them-up game, it has loads of ...

Well, this is already achieved using the hardware tape (F1) and a WAV file, isn't it?

Hi ! Thanks Chema for the 1.0 ! The new screens in the intro are quite good ! I took a quick look at the French version and saw 2 things on the game main screen, before the game starts: - "drop" is translated by "baisse", which is wrong, should be "poser" - "ESC to play" was replaced by "ESC pour jo...

Quick reply from RTC connection (how slow ;)) Does this method allow to check parity errors during the reading ? If not, I'll keep improving the PC tools :) Really, I don't know, but at least it permits to take benefit of the oric hardware in order to read the audio signal when it is "not nice". So...
