Re: Oric DSK Manager

Thanks Dbug. I will have a look and tell the developer. I am quite sure that you can alter disk geometry by creating a new image with the contents of another image, but I concur that would be a bit cumbersome.

Re: Experimental very fast tape loading

I really have no idea, but Orics have always been very picky with volume settings. I think something is wrong with all the input circuitry. In my experience most games load with my laptop volume at 80% as you said, but some may need less volume. I usually start with very low volumes and move up unti...

Re: Oric-1 16k memory management

Just guessing here, but most probably the ULA is the same, so screen is at the same location in 16 & 48K models. Same as ROM is in c000 to ffff.

And I also think there were no 16K Atmos. Cannot remember where I got this from, however.

Re: BomberZ.bas and bas2tap ..

Or even simpler anything not being a reserved word is a label unless in an assignment expression (in which it would be a variable). You don't really need line numbers (you can generate them in the end and substitute labels with the corresponding line number. I think any parser can handle that easily...

Re: JOric

Mmmm I think I misunderstood you... It is not that I don't want black borders on the screen sizes. I was just stating that I would rather see the original Oric's rectangular pixels (Oricutron can do that) with its aspect ratio (I think it is 5:4 on the usual 4:3 TV screen), than perfectly squared pi...

Re: JOric

In my opinion it is a good idea to always keep the original Oric aspect ratio (with its rectangular pixels) or, at least, a perfect squared pixel. But stretching the image without keeping the aspect ratio would look horrible, I think. I'd prefer to have the widest screen possible, correct aspect rat...

Re: oric atmos boot stuck at AA pattern

"Powering up (initialization) faults If after powering up, the screen is covered with black horizontal bars or random patterns, this indicates that the contents of the ROM (language interpreter and operating system) have not been correctly loaded into DRAM."

I don't know why I did not notice the first part of your previous answer. Sorry. Yes I am quite a fan of adventure games, both graphic and text :) It is nice to see that you are also interested in how they were programmed, because that search was what set me into creating my engine :D Back to this i...
