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... I'm very careful with what I think I understand at 1am :wink: I guess that with that modification in wav2tap, you will be able to convert some of your tapes t...

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... (I'm trying to adapt WAV2TAP to convert these re-writte...

Actually, I read "modifier" (complete word), but as this is an international forum, I wanted to keep things in English and assumed that was "modify" in English ;-)

I haven't voted yet, not sure what I'm supposed to check :arrow:
I'm using mainly the emulators.
But on my real hardware configuration, although I do own a microdisc (3"), I almost never use it and mainly use tapes...

Fabrice: 1- I have been able to test the Windows tape player 2- you're a genius It works indeed. So, under XP, to load a Euphoric Hardware Tape (WAV file at 4800hz) on a real Oric, just load the file in the Windows tape player, then save it, but before saving it, on the saving prompt, click on the "...

Hi there, A while ago, I think it was in 2003, the CEO Mag published an article describing the .DSK files header, as well as articles about OLD2MFM, and so on. See: - CEO Mag 154, page 49 - CEO Mag 153, page 16 - Sedoric à Nu gives all details about the disk formats and the gaps: http://oric.free.fr...

Hi Fabrice, Ok I will try some day, the problem is that my PCs and my Orics are not at the same place, and when I say "not at the same place", I mean they're 130km away from each other. I have absolutely no room in Paris for a TV and Orics. I only go back home visit my parents (and my Orics ;-) with...
