Re: Thoughts about WAV tapes repository

Actually, we would have much more than 1000 tapes I think, but on the other hand, only the very big early programs will use 230MB (slow speed recording, with both sides). Fast speed recordings only take around 50-60MB. If the goal is to re-create a version that can be loaded, then unmodified TAP fil...

Thoughts about WAV tapes repository

Hi, I'm still transferring tapes, at very slow pace, and still to get a TAP file from them. This requires making WAV files of the (44kHz, 8-bit), that I'm trashing once the TAP is done. I've heared a few times that people would be interested in WAV repository. Seems a bit complicated to me, as it is...

Re: Diagnostic cartridges?

IIRC Fabrice "Euphoric" also made a diagnostic ROM long ago, I even seem to recall it was speaking in case of faulty display, saying if components were OK or not. (don't expect beautiful sound though ;) )
Can't find it back right now.

Re: Atmos ROM 1.1, 1st version (called 1.1a, checksum A65D6CED)

Well, the Atmos I got the ROM 1.1a from, hasn't got its serial number anymore.
So ISS, I pictured the motherboard, hoping it might help.

Re: Kryoflux: How to setup?

In the end, it's more or less the same process than tapes: analogic reads and need for a clean reading (or multiple ones).
We could try building our own tools to read from the IPF file, as there's doc around that gives details about the file format.

Re: John S. Sinclair on Oric.org

Gentlemen, please send your questions, Mr. Sinclair just left his email address on oric.org :lol:

I'm really sad though, the questions I had written down for years about Xenon and Zorgon, were stolen in my bag last year. Can't recall much of them. :cry:

Re: Novalight - very fast tape loading

PS: ISS, unless someone finds bugs, I don't plan to change Novalight anymore, not before a while I mean ;) So you can go for it with TapOric :P (oh, well, I've just had a new idea... Might require some testing though... But very tempting... That would make of me a liar :twisted: ) EDIT: will probab...

Re: Sedoric or not, overlay or not

Back to the subject.
ISS, your solution is, I think, the most reliable! The same idea is used in Oric ROMs to check if it's a 16K or 48K model.

Re: Kryoflux: How to setup?

I think your best chance would be to ask someone like Brume, from the ST scene. He won't help you specifically on Oric disks but he's used it a lot for ST I think.

You said this particular Oric is an Atmos, do you have more info about it like production date, serial number, etc.?
I can't tell you these details since I'm far away from it now, but I should check in 15 days. Just hoping I won't forget :lol:

Atmos ROM 1.1, 1st version (called 1.1a, checksum A65D6CED)

ISS, I think you were interested in this 1st Atmos ROM version, here it is, tape-saved from one of my Atmos. The checksum fits with the one at http://oric.free.fr/ROMS/romident.txt , called "A65D6CED Basic 1.1 original première mouture, appelé aussi Basic 1.1a". To me the two main (only?) difference...
