Re: OricExos - making the impossible

The soup-opera continues with new episode... more color bars :) Mixing horizontal and vertical bars: morebars.jpg ... and adding 3rd layer solid color: https://youtu.be/Sxy9IGDHt0E Sources updated in github . @Dbug: it's really weird - if 2 Orics output white then the 3rd become invisible no matter ...

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

Simple try to achieve more colors. The idea was mixing this 4 screens: bars.jpg to get different levels in brightness but only 2 shades are visible. bars-demo.jpg Obviously this "direct RGB connection" is usable only when the goal is speed i.e. the screen will be divided in 4 areas and every Oric wi...

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

Thanks for the idea! Two things need to be changed: - PEEK(#EDB0) returns #60, #31, #32, #33 respectively for master, slave1, slave2, slave3 - use mask 0x03; - the patched ROM can't execute BASIC programs - use C :twisted: Here is the code (uploaded OricExos github ): // Original code Dbug // 10 ID=...

Here we go: https://youtu.be/3FP3D1z5c2Q And screen closeup: first-demo.jpg Oric #0 is with PAPER7 which acts like alpha-plane :). Master loader and slave code in attached zip-file. The video mixing is "direct connect" like OR-ing but it's not exactly. In next demo I'll use more colors horizontal+ve...

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

This is how OricExos looks like: 20181007_234339.jpg 20181007_232751.jpg ... and it WORKS !

Re: Oricutron for android (POC)

Small update Oricutron_android-20181006-1.apk:
- better icon generated from vector svg image
- visual keyboard by default visible with "sticky" keys turned on - easier to type on tablet.

Next thing will be to make a Bluetooth keyboard to work (the link is just an example).

Re: Oricutron for android (POC)

Oricutron_android-20181006 can be downloaded form http://iss.sandacite.com/oricutron/
No visible changes but it seems to work stable. I have some ideas for improved usability,
keeping android version as low as possible for better compatibility.

Re: Gotek USB floppy emulator

Yes, with buttons you change the selection and the image number is displayed on the 7-segment LCD. This is the concept used in all such emulators and the image files have to be named in a special way (i.e. DSK0001.HFE etc.). The problem is actually when you have lot of images in the USB-stick. That'...

Re: Textmode Sideways Scroller

Yes, it's confusing :). Try this code: int touch; char *keyPtr; void main(void) { keyPtr=(char*)520; //mem location for keyboard scanning while(1) { touch = 0x7f & *keyPtr; if(touch!=56) // 56 seems to be no key press and this works { printf("touch = %d \n",touch); //pressing 'A' key gives me a valu...

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

Chema, I totally agree with you about the need to preserve Oric in their original shape and look! I like Oric as is and definitely will never drill a hole in the case ... I swear! :) Firstly when I bought these 4 Oric from eBay they were "not working for spare parts" full with dust, hairs and grease...
