Greetings Dbug,
Fully appreciate your kind hopes.
It was a most blessed Christmas day here in the Spider household, with the outlaws visiting. Our Lord was remembered.
Pray you had a great time also.

Hiya Bacon, Always great to meet a fellow Oric user. Although I was an Oric user from day 1, with a 16K Oric-1, I drifted away from the Oric scene until after the new millenium. Discovered the Oric newsgroup (comp.sys.org), the main webpage ( http://www.oric.org ), and this wonderful community of p...

You are most welcome.

Small tip: press F4 in Euphoric at least once to speed up the game play.
Not too many times though, otherwise you will not be able to type.

Re: Euphoric question... Can't get Level 9 games to load...

Hi guys Apologies first for such a simple/selfish question, but I can't seem to get any of my favourite Level 9 adventures to load using Euphoric (Windows, v1.00). I just keep getting a flashing cursor (on the BASIC screen) and nothing... Any ideas as to what I need to do? I need an adventure fix! ...

Thanks Mickael,
Did notice the troublesome posts, but knew you would get to them eventually.

Suggestion: maybe you should appoint someone as asst moderator (or something) just with the authority to remove such messages if you are ever away again.

Fabrice,
You of all people deserve time off, to make projects for yourself, and importantly - to enjoy doing so.
I consider myself the least in the community because others do far more than I do, but what I do, I enjoy. Therefore I understand.
Take your time my friend.
