software list

I think Oric.org has become difficult to view, the way it is laid out.

For the database on which oric.org was based look at the list(s) on my website. www.48katmos.freeuk.com

Could you also check the address book for someone by the name of Jean-Claude Talar?
The CEO are the people that may be able to help with that.

Hello Steve, Would it be possible for you to put me in touch with Jean Boileau, as well as the contact at Severn? What is he CEO of? (It would make him easier to track down.) Would it also be possible for you to scan in the interview from Théoric? Thank you for your assistance, Matt. I'll need to d...

Re: Severn Software

Does anyone have any contacts who used to work for Severn Software? I am writing a book about the vintage James Bond games and I see that 'Severn' developed an ORIC version of 'A View to a Kill.' Does anyone know how I might be able to get in touch with the programmers behind this port? Does anyone...

Then, L'Oric a nu is only a ROM disassembly or has more things about Oric hardware?. I didn't reply to this as I don't have the book. I believe the bulk is the disassembly but I think it has some more details. I'm not sure what else though, so I hope someone else can reply to give the details. It i...

Scanning old fanzines

As some have said it'd be good to scan some of the old fanzines I thought I'd give it a go today. I have some very rare Oric publications. Some of these were printed on Oric plotters and then photocopied for the masses. They look OK but trying to scan them is tough. Greyscale produces a nice readabl...

Yes l'Oric à Nu is the French "bible" with ROM disassembly, lots of comments and details. We recently discovered a few small mistakes here or there, in the tape routines for instance, but it's a really great book. Jon Haworth was doing a translation along with the V1.0 ROM disassembly in OUM and tw...

Isn't it basically a ROM disassembly?
You can still get the Advanced User Guide which has this.

I'd also be interested if this works since i have an amstrad monitor, i'd also be interested to hear if the power output of the monitor (intended for the CPC) is compatable with the Oric Power? :P Of course it works.
