Re: Oric-1 Repair

Remember the Oric is a bit picky when booting. Plug the PSU first, then the plug into the Oric (careful: do not plug it into the expansion port!). With some Orics it may need more than one attempt,

Some service modification improved the booting cycle, though, IIRC.

Re: Oricutron and illegal opcode 80

Good find!

Imho any emulator should behave as the machine would do. These illegal instructions behave the same on all Orics and could well be used by a real program as this one.

Iirc only some variants of 6502 not used in Orics, behaved differently. At least it should be made an option in emulators.

Lol that's the price to add support for the sync hack... never again :)

Re: Novalight - very fast tape loading

You've done a thorough research here, and tried many many different options to squeeze every little bit of loading time. Your work is incredible and I really think gaining yet another 0.001% is not worth it. Unless you are having a really good time by trying :) I always thought that Fabrice's tap2CD...

Re: Jasmin time

Great, as I said in the other thread :P

The code of B7 is in the repository, and it was double checked by Fabrice. It also works on the emulators (both Oricutron and Euphoric).

And it would be nice, once this is done, to investigate the disk structure...

Re: Oric logo and trademark

Talking about this, in The Story so Far it says It was a limbo that was to persist until as late as December, 1988, when the shop in Paris was finally closed, the company wound up, and a company named I.R.I. set up to dispose of the remaining stocks and the name. So I understand the company called I...

Re: Oric logo and trademark

Mmmmm... I thought I had corrected those, anyway they are on vector format so if you want you can send me your scan and I could try to fix that. The strange fringe around the letters is something that puzzled me. I just recently noticed it too, and I am not sure if that was something added by ten co...

Re: Oric logo and trademark

About recreating the logo, Dbug, I already made an effort and the result is here viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1172&hilit=Oric+lo ... =15#p11961

It is the closest to the original that I could manage, but any improvement would be great!

Re: Oric logo and trademark

I doubt the logo is the problem... but imagine they bundle an emulator with some list of games they get the rights of, and sell that as an Android/iOS bundle called NewOric or something. They can start claiming us to retire the games from free download or something. Or, worse, they could somewhat ge...
