Lothlorien doesn't seem to have any extra files for the strategy games I looked at.

Re: Connectivity problems (again)

Ok, I'll restart the server tomorrow morning, since apparently that helped the few last times.

Re: The QUILL

I guess a recent version of Tap2Wav or equivalent would do, probably ask Symoon :)

Re: The QUILL

Well, nobody get their design right from the first attempt :) Generally speaking (that's valid for software and hardware), it's a good idea to make a limited release to have a few people test things left, right and center, give feedback, before releasing world wide fast, the initial testing often di...

Re: The QUILL

Which brings the question of Erebus' firmware updates: I wonder is a Erebus 2.0, instead of having a EPROM, could just implement the overlay signal, and load to overlay memory a 16k ROM file that could then be patched by just changing the file on the SD card?

Re: The QUILL

Could it be something as stupid as some off by one error when loading data or computing the checksum?

Re: Is BD-DOS lost to time?

I have a ByteDrive. Wow! This is amazing. All paper scans will be great and helpful. @Steve M : If you decide to sell any ByteDrive stuff count me as a candidate! :) Else I'm ready also to borrow it for some short time and cover all two-way postage. Whatever happens to the drive, would be cool if s...

Re: Oriclopedia: A series of videos on all things Oric

Now I'm going to bother you with scans/overview pics/WAV file of Canada ;) Before doing that, you should check oric.org :p Ha ha, that's cool, thanks ;) Are both tape sides the same? :p BTW the game is there, strangely as a DSK file. So if you ever make a WAV and want a TAP out of it, you know wher...

Re: Game Instructions

If you are logged on oric.org, most programs there have some "stuff" at the bottom, including scans of the inlays, manuals, etc...
Most of the time you can see instructions there.

Re: Oriclopedia: A series of videos on all things Oric

Great video - might've also been of use to discuss TapOric? http://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopic.php?t=1758 JiBé already requested something on the subject, but for the same reason I only mentioned the tape drive without actually showing how to load (or fail trying), I believe the topic of load...

Re: Oriclopedia: A series of videos on all things Oric

Since there's recently been a large number of people being confused about Erebus, Cumulus, Cumana, etc... I made a video about it. Hopefully I got my facts right, but if there are incorrect things, please mentioned them and I will put some addendum in the description. Thanks! https://www.youtube.com...

Have fun :)

If you liked Buggy Boy, you can also check other demos, like all the ones on http://www.defence-force.org/index.php? ... barbitoric (except the ones with the /|\ logo, which only run on Atari ST)
