Re: Oricutron 1.0 (EDIT: Now 1.2)

Extending the DSK format would still mean that the emulator would crash when starting from a legacy version of DSK files. Would it not make more sense to have Oricutron loads into memory the entire DSK, in some flexible structure that can be extended, etc... and save a full newly updated file when w...

Re: Atmos/Microdisk - ghost in the machine!?!?!?

I'm still going to try :) If only because a complete Oric system looks nicer that anything recent that has been produced. Sure, Erebus and Cumulus and practical, more user friendly and reliable than tapes and floppies, but there's something satisfying in just managing to load a game from a physical ...

Re: Atmos/Microdisk - ghost in the machine!?!?!?

By the way, do you have any means of writing 3" disks from disk images (dsk)? I know there is a way of connecting a 3" unit to a PC, but it seems nobody has such a setup nowadays. I've personally gave up with that, but the combo of HxC (or Gotek I guess) + Microdisc works well. You basically conver...

Re: Digitalsound toolchain/demo from wav 2 Oric

Is this sam2ay doing things very different from what my SampleTweaker.exe does? I used that for my Oric Tech demo: SET SAMPLETWEAKER=%OSDK%\Bin\SampleTweaker.exe %SAMPLETWEAKER% data\Sample.raw build\files\BoomTschak.raw %SAMPLETWEAKER% data\SampleDefence.raw build\files\SampleDefence.raw %SAMPLETWE...

That's when this happens you are glad you spent the time installing sockets instead of soldering directly the new chips :D

Re: Alphaville's Big in Japan (Vortex->AY->YM) , mymplayer.s moded (vumeter)

He ! You did almost all the work with your mymplayer ! One thing I am very satisfied is that I learned a lot in assembly programming, trying to understand your code, and modifying it to insert my little (dirty) vumeter routine : I think it is my very first serious assemblying code even if it is not...

Tetrix is available in the V3 release of Gamebase Oric. I was working on V4 but lost everything after my hard drive and backup drive crashed. Although V4 may never see the light of day I am still slowly adding new games just in case my motivation returns.
Did you lose all of V3, or?

The last few posts could well have been written in Latin for all I understood :) You guys techy-knowledge blows my mind and really puts me in my place. You're on another level.
I think that has more to do with the fact that we've played with this stuff for a few decades :)

Re: CEO-Mag Christmas gift: John Sinclair interview available

I'm having the same problem with my blog, articles and youtube videos, when people ask me for French versions. I simply do not have the time, people don't realize the mammouth amount of time it takes to basically do any of this stuff, but what's sure is that when you answer people that if they can p...
