Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

Oh, and another question more :) Is there a tool that could be used to duplicate a non-DOS disk from within the Oric? Something that copies sector by sector? Just to add it as a recommendation to backup the game disk. Not that I know of - but I know very little about disk tools as I never used disk...

Well, in case that was a special one for me... My Android 2.3 smartphone just died without warning!

Re: Sedoric 4.0

I can't recall, but if you can use CHDIR in INIST, then you could reach the file you need and load it (but it makes things more complicated, sure).

Re: Sedoric 4.0

I don't think you can Steve. To load your file, you must have them all in the same directory, or actually change directory to the one holding the file you want to load, before loading it. That may be a bit disappointing, but there wasn't enough room left in the kernel (by far!) to change all the com...

Re: Full Telestrat in Ebay

I'm going to make new software for Telestrat and sell it 500€ per disk ;)

Let's start with a worm eating apples... :mrgreen:

Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

A small idea, in case you really want to waste remaining bytes: if the player has been inactive for a while, as soon as the pointer moves again, the character can say something like "ah, you're back!".

Re: Sedoric 4.0

Steve: CHDIR.. gets you back to the upper level CHDIR. gets you to the disk root just like "CD" command in MS-DOS ;) About language: maybe on boot the Oric thinks a key has been pressed. Go back to the main menu, then you can select English. About other tools: I first planned adapting several existi...

Re: Sedoric 4.0

Just checked and updated Oric.org with the latest bugfix version from André (which was from last year ;) )
This was a minor one with 4 bytes that differed, but anyway, it's done.

Bug reports are welcome (if any, of course ;) )

Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

It sounded good, but I agree that maybe having it lasting as long as the character speaks, could have been tiring in the end.

Anyway, thanks for having tried Chema, sorry it didn't give the expected results!

Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

Sounds OK to me ;)
Maybe a bit higher pitch for the sound?

Re: Progress bar loading

You're quite right Steve... I could get rid of the start one, but not the end one. I realised that, in the worst case, I could load a 1st program that displays them, then crush this code (18 bytes, that are only run once) by loading a 2nd program that holds the progress bar code. It would only be a ...
