Re: TAP/mulator

Yes, it's great and the idea how to change directories on SD card is simply GENIAL!
I'll try to contact the author for more info (mainly about adjusting signal levels from micro controller to tape input) else it will be fun to write firmware - just tap2wav and some logic :).

Re: Fast scrolling game howto, anyone?

Awesome!
@Chema: do you plan to release sources? Your scrolling engine is impressive and can be used as kick-start for many new platform games.

Re: TAP/mulator

Any news on this topic? I'm planing long time ago to make such SD replacement for tape - just need time and more support from Oric community :). Actually, TAP/mulator already exists and I think it's VERY good -> SDcard tape interface . It's published on youtube by "Euphoric Oric" (everyone can guess...

Re: Interesting tips from Personel Computer News

@ibisum: attached are 64bit builds they work for me in Fedora 19 (see demo.avi pasting your message in Oricutron). I hope they will be compatible with Ubuntu

@ibisum: use F12 to paste the text you already selected from any text source. F12 is the default key for paste. Hope this will work for you - if not contact me I'll be glad to help.

Re: Interesting tips from Personel Computer News

Inspired from this topic I just added clipboard paste in Oricutron for Linux and Windows. Now it's easy to copy/paste snippets directly from browser.
So, stay tuned for next Xeron's release (or compile Oricutron yourself :)).

Re: Oric ULAs on eBay?

The provider from above eBay link - insa_electronics is really from Bulgaria. They have full bags with rare electronics parts and sell only on-line. My friend jorodr knows personally them and probably can give an opinion if one can trust them. And Yes, the font on the chip is really suspicious, but ...

Re: New (corrected) version of tap2cd

As promised before I found my adapter. It's actually bit different than yours but I think internally they should be the same. Below are images of disassembling and the wiring diagram (sorry for low quality). Unfortunately, with this wiring it's impossible to make RGB working using this adapter. If y...

Re: New (corrected) version of tap2cd

RGB -> Scart thema is commented long time ago here: http://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=434 The suggestion about pin 16 is correct - it needs 1..3 V to switch TV in RGB mode. Additionally adapter can be checked how pins are internally connected. I think I have the same adapter and ca...

Re: About light pen..

@peacer, attached are ROM files you need. IMHO it's better to use Atmos emulation - I think you are more familiar with Atmos than with Pravetz and Pravetz is just the same as Atmos, but with Cyrillic and exotic disk drive system. P.S. I just checked in Oricutron with Pravetz emulation (svn ver.494) ...
