Re: John S. Sinclair on Oric.org

Yes there was.
I couldn't find my original interview but Didier sent me the version André put in the CEO. John wrote in reply to my page which looks at different cassette versions. You can see I added a footnote. http://www.48katmos.freeuk.com/cc04.htm

Re: Rhetoric disks other than the first?

All ten Rhetoric disks are online line now. Many thanks Symoon !!! Please have a look as they contain stuff that people keep asking for. When I looked at Disk 10 no-one had downloaded it. :( There's a lot of stuff there which makes them good for Cumulus use as well as the emulator. I even fire them ...

Re: Line Feed - Oric MCP40 demo at Solskogen

Interesting articles Thierry.

I've found with some pens you can use surgical spirit to get the ink flowing again. (I can't remember whether I've tried this with MCP40 pens - but I have used it on other types of pen.)

The MCP40 pens are so small you would need a tiny amount. Might be worth a try(?)

Thanks.

I have a few Atmos MCP40s in need or a bit of repair. Never had time to check out what they need exactly.

Re: Looking for the Show Off "demo"

Jim's website has gone now. :( Here's the tape converted from a Wav file I recorded into the PC. There is a spurious line that I can't get rid of in the 60000- area. Oddly it was written for the Oric-1 but I can't get it to work on there in Oricutron. There are some Oric-1 ROM calls which I've put R...

If you use the sideways writing you can have an 80 column printer rather than a 40 column one :)

(One of the first Oric fan user group neswletters was one like that. )

Re: Sedoric warning "DOS is altered!"

As far as I know it wasn't released on the Beeb. I did an interview with John S Sinclair who got in touch with me via my website. Unfortunately I can't find the interview at the moment - but that's one thing I remember from it. I always thought the graphics in the first screen look like a Beeb game....

No idea, Steve. It is just that I thought that if the game called the get the key presses, it is ROM dependent?

But I might well be wrong!
I would guess it isn't ROM dependent because it was written on the BBC computer and ported across to Oric.

Re: Sedoric warning "DOS is altered!"

Is there a version that isn't Atmos compatible ?

The one on this disk image works.

Re: Sedoric warning "DOS is altered!"

Put a master disk in the A drive and your slave disk in the B drive. You should be able to view it then.

I think it throws this message up if you insert an OricDOS disk after booting with Sedoric.

Re: Compatible transister ?

I think there's three. There's a couple around the tape output, one by the keyboard connection.
