Re: Fabrice/Euphoric experiments with soft serial through TT

Very nice demos!
Bit-banging serial protocol with Oric's parallel port on 38400 baud is impressive work too.
I like it.

Re: 24 of April. AtmoStrat was born

Thanks to jorodr and Chema I found bug in Oricutron running in TeleStrat mode related to ACIA emulation. Now it's fixed and I'll commit changes to svn.

Re: Cumulus Issues

Yes, there was no doubt, that two buffer PCB's don't solve the problem. My hope was just to be lucky and 2-buffers make my Cumuluses to work - unfortunately no luck :(. I have 4-5 ULA's with different labels, later I'll check all of them and will post the results here. BTW, Godzil, can you share you...

Re: 24 of April. AtmoStrat was born

About Dos-8D: as I already promised you - I'll replace all 'invalid' cpu instructions, so it will work.
About MIDI: especially for ibisum(!) I foresee to include MIDI support too in my project code name "Oric Communicator". It's work in progress.
And again, well done, jorodr!

Congratulations, jorodr!
AtmoStrat rev.0.2 looks really great. I'm looking forward for (at least) one of these jewels. ;)

Re: Oricutron and Euphoric with Modem.dsk and RS232

Now it clear what you want to do. Put in config file: serial=com:115200,8,N,1,COM1 Take care to set the proper number after the up-case 'COM', you can check in Windows 'Device Manager' the actual number. Than plug loopback dongle in your RS port. Here are variants of what you need: rs-dongle.gif or ...

Re: WAV files not loading on Oric 1

If there is no particular reason to use UHF output or the composite video mod,
I highly recommend to use RBG to SCART - it's simply the best and easy to build.
Else, more info about one possible solution for composite video mod you can find in this post.

Re: Oricutron and Euphoric with Modem.dsk and RS232

Oricutron v.1.2 works fine using serial emulation in 'loopback' mode with MODEM.DSK. After booting with MODEM.DSK you have to configure the hardware (i.e. 1.SETUP LINE ). Than select 9600, 8 bit, no parity, 1 stop bit. Importatant : base address is #31C! Flow control is 'none'. Start the terminal pr...

Re: Next Cumulus batch

@Godzil: about the mechanical 'nice to have': - LCD connector on PCB - it's fragile - one of the cumuluses I received from metadata was broken - probably not good soldered and during transportation was detached. Than follow a long story how I fixed it - I will post additionally with pictures. Probab...

Re: Next Cumulus batch

About price : For me 70EUR (shipping not included) is the fair price for Cumulus "as is". Else, up to 100EUR are OK for me, but I would require guaranty, that device will work with all of my Orics, Atmoses and 8D. Additionally there are some mechanical issues, which I like to be solved too for that ...
