Re: OSDK 1.1 Link65.exe weird syntax error

You could just paste the first part of your main.c file, but I still think this could be due to something that is included. If you could check your #includes for something strange...

Re: Twilighte's IM music

Ah, really nice. Thank you. So it is done in Wave 2.0. I tried that when I was creating the music for 1337 and, when I had something with pitchbends and some nice volume effects, I had to get back to an older version because Twi never produced the compiler, so music could not be exported or played o...

Re: OSDK 1.1 Link65.exe weird syntax error

I personally find the messages quite clear, but I don't chare if they change terminology unless I stop understanding the tool being upset. If you can attach or copy your .c or the generated .s file (main in both cases) we could have a look. Else there is little we can do... One thing that happens to...

I was actually saying this because I'm disappointed about such high prices, for both Oric hardware and Ringo Starr show ;)

Re: Microdisc in ebay

Mmm not sure. This price escalation does no good. We are buying hardware which is 30+ years old just for nostalgic reasons, maybe for preservation. Your calculation has a small flaw, I'd say. How many times in a year will you enjoy, or actually use at all, that hardware? That Microdisc with a 3" uni...

Re: OSDK 1.1 Link65.exe weird syntax error

I think (but I may be wrong) that the error is being issued by XA trying to assemble the file produced by the compiler from main.c and I think at line 1

We would need to have a look at your main.c file.

Re: Paste from clipboard problem

No trouble at all! It is nice to have these challenges from time to time :) You've probably spotted a bug in Oricutron, a problem with one of the tools in OSDK and preserved a program (more or less… some debugging is still necessary). And I had fun for some time trying to figure out what was happeni...

Re: Paste from clipboard problem

I've been trying to clean the code up, but there are soooo many errors, that I gave up. This is my last attempt. It runs out of DATAs in 2555, so some are missing from the data list above that line. I had to correct a few values, so probably something is wrong (a missing comma or something would be ...

Re: Paste from clipboard problem

Okay I got it guys. Problem is there are OCR errors. It seems our tools cannot handle some of them correctly. I tried bas2tap and generated a cloadable tap file, but the BASIC was corrupt because the line numbering was out of order. Due to OCR errors, that is. For instance: 2010 whatever 2820 whatev...

Re: Paste from clipboard problem

Chema The program was developed on a 49k oric1 in 1983 so it fits. I had a stupid thought that it could be the font but I don't see how. I got that, what I was suggesting is that the data to paste into Oricutron is maybe too much, overflowing some internal buffer or something along those lines (an ...

Re: Paste from clipboard problem

Actually Symoon, that is a great idea. The tool he is talking about is part of the development toolchain we use. I wonder if you could just use it standalone... It is worth a try. Download it from http://miniserve.defence-force.org/svn/public/pc/tools/osdk/main/Osdk/_final_/Bin/bas2tap.exe The docum...

Re: Paste from clipboard problem

Re: Paste from clipboard problem

I am not sure why pasting fro the clipboard does not work, but if you can share the listing (in txt format) we could try to see what is going wrong or find an alternative. On the conversion tools, they are old and only work under MSDOS. I have a win98 laptop just for that... Some might be recompiled...

Re: Blake's 7 - French version / Version française

Well in my opinion adventure games (more over graphic adventures) have to be challenging not difficult . They also have to be interesting and fun to play and (most importantly) deliver a story where the player feels as protagonist. In any case they never have to be either frustrating or too easy and...

Yes! Does it work? Any chance you can write a disk? Blake's 7 for instance?
