Re: The Return of Viking Chess (Hnefatafl)

30 years since you started, and almost 3 years for this version alone. Well done for sticking with it, that's taken dedication. All the more impressive when you've learnt C along the way.

Re: Android emulator

There are games that will run in 16k e.g. Light Cycles from P.S.S. I do agree that in principle, 9 pounds (which is more than 10 euros) is not a large sum. But in relative terms, compared to other similar products within the same market, it is high, especially for a new unknown quantity. I bought Sp...

Re: Android emulator

I found it. £9 is far, far too expensive. You've got serious fans like us balking at the price, so anyone else will just walk on by. I'm not suggesting you make it free. but a third of that is more realistic and comparable to other paid emulators on the platform. For example, Spectaculator, the Andr...

Re: [ATHANOR] New Adventure Game on Oric1/Atmos

Perfect, thanks for the update.

Do you need any English proof reading/playtesting?

Re: The Return of Viking Chess (Hnefatafl)

The option for a user to redefine the keys should be a standard in all modern games, not least for accessibility. Likewise, joystick control should be available.

This makes it unplayable for myself and most other Oric owners, not owning a disc drive. There really needs to be a digital version for download so we can emulate it at least.

Re: Looking for The Quill Adventure System (tap/dsk)

Weird. Every time I search Oric.org for 'quill', the site bugs out, giving me a search result page with only this as a result: 1495 http://www.oric.org/ftp/games/software/m/mes/mes_1.png Sat, 07 Sep 2002 00:00:01 GMT http://www.example.org/actu1 The rest of the page is fine, it just won't return the...

The IT Crowd Manual

I'm watching The IT Crowd Manual (a documentary on the series) on Channel 4 at the moment and Graham Linehan has just highlighted the Oric Atmos on the set as a particularly notable thing. A small thing perhaps, but it pleased me. Should be on 4OD soon: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/the-it-crow...

Re: Programming the 6502 - Rodnay Zaks

I bought Zaks one when I started tinkering with 6502 last year. Seems pretty solid having not done a great deal of assembly coding, really only some stuff on the 68000 in the mid 90s.

You might want to have the Oric memory map to hand, but otherwise 6502 coding is pretty generic.
