Re: OricExos - making the impossible

This is becoming very interesting even for non-hardware guys ;)
Getting rid (more or less ;) ) of attributes headache... and colours! Would red and yellow be orange or plain red?

Keep up the good work guys, real fun here ;)

Re: Oricutron for android (POC)

I haven't tried it yet, no idea when I can, but I'm sure I will at some point.
A big thanks, and to all those keeping emulators alive, for free, on their spare time, as well!

Re: The ZX-UNO project.

Apparently there are developments going on of Oric emulation (or whatever you call it) for ZX-Uno and Mist. That's great news, although apparently they just might be "proof of concept", and not finished. The limitation that always stopped me from buying is the connexion to some of the real hardware ...

Re: Modern Software Packaging

BTW: I do have Meurtre a Grande Vitesse, but none of the physical clues are in it :( Are they available somewhere for download so they can be printed out? Yep, most are here in the stuff section (you got to log in): https://www.oric.org/index.php?page=software&fille=detail&num_log=129 From memory, ...

Re: Modern Software Packaging

Just for historical information, Cobra Soft used VHS boxes, and had a multi-usage plastic "adapter"inside its latest versions. It can be used for tapes or 3.5" disks, and probably (I didn't check) 3" disks. The box was manufactured by "Vimeo" in France. That being said, such huge box is really annoy...

Re: VIA "networking"

At one point I thought about adding, during the system interrupt, a listen to the VIA to see if something happened on the tape port, and if so, then stop and wait for a short specific synchro code (like 3 of 4 bits). If matching, then a program is about to begin => CLOAD. If not, it was just noise, ...

Re: VIA "networking"

I guess the master machine could load from disk stuff which is already in the right "novalight" format to send, but then I guess that would be huge and not fit in memory! Yes, and it would also require a perfect 44kHz WAV player ;) Basically we could send or receive data to the Oric directly from t...

Re: VIA "networking"

Do you think it's possible to transfer from the master to all three slaves at the same time (for example for doing a parallel transfer of the common data) ? This could be easily done with the tape port (one Oric "saving", the others loading), but I'm not sure this is what you're looking for - stand...

Re: Extension Multicoloric?

Hi Peacer,
I think Jede tried to build it, but I seem to recall it had many miskates or lack of details so I'm not sure he managed to make it work.
Jede will tell you better than I do when he comes around.

Re: California Devices Inc and the HCS10017

A bit late to the party, but WOW, what an amazing document!
Far beyond my understanding and abilities, but so well detailed that it still could be a source of information for non-hardware guys like me.

Congratulations Mike, and to all those involved.
