I really don't think a large flash device would be required but any additional space could be filled with utilities. Yep, kind of "Ultimate Ripper", or "Action Replay" cartridge. Could contain a disassembler, a debugger, memory sprite ripper/inspecter, save/reload feature (freeze the state of the m...

Re: Hooking up a Oric to a Commodore RGB monitor in Canada

I recently purchased a commodore monitor that has a RGB socket and I was wondering if a Oric-1 will work with it. Giving us the monitor model would help a lot :) If its a 1081, 1083, 1084 (normal or "S" variants), you have to know that the answer is yes. Actually it's a vibrant yes, because you wil...

Vortex Tracker

If you people are willing to try on doing YM music for Oric demos or games, please take a look at the vortex tracker: http://bulba.at.kz/vortex_e.htm It's a Windows program, mostly aimed at MSX/Sinclair machines, but it can exports in many formats, is able to load a large library of existing musics ...

Yes and no. A working 48k Atmos + Microdisc is a perfectly good combination, good enough for doing any kind of game. With the overlay memory, there is enough memory, the microdisc is fast enough, and the sound is quite ok. The real problem is that it's hard to find a working configuration, the hardw...

P.S. What about the opening intro DBug? :twisted: Promised, as soon as I moved to the new apartment I work on it and finish it. But I'm in the same situation as the game is: I do not have any music ! I guess I will have see with Fabrice if I can have the source code of the midi player, in which cas...

An alternative way to explore, is Fabrice's midi to ym converter.

The result will not be as great as would be a dedicated ym tracked music, but it would be better than nothing. And it's easier to find somebody that can do midi music.

For the point 5), perhaps simply waiting for a key to be released before checking for a key to be pressed would solve the problem.

This way if the player died with a key pressed, it will not automaticaly skip the wait key, the player will have to release and then repress the key :)

It's probably possible to output a custom special sync signal before the normal file header, and switch to normal cload code when this signal is detected :)

New pictconv soon

I nearly finished adapting PictConv to the latest version of FreeImage. The most interesting thing will be the support of more types of pictures, including GIF :) The second thing, is that FreeImage is now open source, and multi plateform, so this means I will be able to do a native version under Li...

I can probably send you the intro source and data if you want to integrate it, even if it's still in the same state as before ?

I sure wish as well things will go better for everybody. On my side I'm still looking for an apartment, and this really starts to bother me a lot. In the good news side, I managed to fix most of the big bugs I got in the version 0.017 of the OSDK, and next version will also probably use the updated ...
