Someone scanned it a few years ago but we never saw the result: he wanted Fabrice Broche's agreement to make it public. Since then we lost contact with this person. :cry: Yes l'Oric à Nu is the French "bible" with ROM disassembly, lots of comments and details. We recently discovered a few small mist...

Hi there, Wow, very interesting :) Dbug is right, I'll be glad to transfer the tape ! 2 possibilities: - if the tape is not an original, I can deal with a WAV file of the tape (I'll tell you exactky which format) - if you can't record the tape to WAV, or if you have artwork with it (I'll scan it), t...

I might have the doc, not sure, but you'll have to wait a few weeks before I'm able to check (the doc, if I have it, is far away at the moment).

It will probably be in French.

Oh yes, the manual...
Well I'm not willing to be the boring guy, but it took ages to be displayed on my old P4-2gHz computer.
Too many graphics maybe ? I could almost see it being diplayed line by line, just like HIRES pictures loaded from tape :wink:

Thanks for the replies.
There are plenty of synch bytes in the standard signal that should avoid any data loss.
It's also possible to shorten it (by reprogramming the loading routines) according to the Oric's detection speed.

Now I guess I have to learn how interrputs can be programed :)

Well, I guess you already know it but I was surprised, when propted to "press any key" at the beginning, that only the in-game keys could be pressed (Z,X,M and so on), the other ones being inoperant.

Keep up the great work, the game is amazing indeed !

Detecting tape signal

Hi,

No sure where to post this question, but anyway.
Is it possible to run a program, and at the same time detect if the Oric is recieving information on the tape plug, then switch the Oric to CLOAD mode ?

Cheers
Simon

I have concatenated my two files without removing any tep header or tap trailer, is it correct ? Yes it's correct. A multi-part TAP file is nothing but concatenated TAP files. So the headers have to be there! (the synchro must be at least 3 bytes of value #16, and 1 byte value #24, then the usual h...

In "Sedoric à nu", it is said (pages 482-483) that at the boot it's the routine in #EB7E IN THE MICRODISC ROM that is executed. I don't know if there's a way to activate the Microdisc ROM by software, but you can still analyse and copy this routine somewhere (the Microdisc ROM being provided with Eu...

Ok ! This is how I did for the MKDIR command in Sedoric. It's tricky and dirty but it worked; I suppose though that better skilled programmer will find a nicer solution ;-) The syntax was: MKDIR:directory_name For instance: MKDIR:TWIDEMO And now, the part of the code of MKDIR that picked up the para...
