Re: Ripping cartridges

This thread is too out of my reach, but this behaviour of the RESET is something I did not get. Is it a kind of "special" reset? Because Oric's reset button (beneath the keyboard) is attached to the NMI signal of the processor, so it should work as any other IRQ with the exception that it jumps to a...

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

I have not had enough time to go through the series, but that is something I'd definitely want to do. You are making an splendid job here, Dbug, and it is indeed very interesting.

The revamped game looks incredible. :shock:

Re: Oric DSK Manager

Maybe there is an OS dependent problem here? Because I tried and the program failed for me when opening the disk image with the same symptoms. No matter if I use the Open menu or drag&drop. I am using Windows 10.

Re: JOric

I cannot tell about the rights, but didn't the people in Tangerine blatantly ripped off a Microsoft Basic Interpreter without actual permission? :D

Re: new with oric atmos

Not to my knowledge, NekoNoNiaow, though there was at least one attempt to create an app to convert tap files and play them on the fly. Surely there is a post here somewhere... In my experience it is not just the wav player, but the power that the device can output through the headphone plug. I trie...

Re: Experimental very fast tape loading

Indeed it was there in the Spam folder...

Can't imagine why. Must be related to your email server.

In any case I got the zip file... I will test as soon as I have time to put my Oric setup to work!

If you want me to test anything, just send me the wav files and I will give them a try in my Atmos.
Thanks! Sent ;)

Re: Oric DSK Manager

Thanks Dbug. I will have a look and tell the developer. I am quite sure that you can alter disk geometry by creating a new image with the contents of another image, but I concur that would be a bit cumbersome.

Re: Experimental very fast tape loading

I really have no idea, but Orics have always been very picky with volume settings. I think something is wrong with all the input circuitry. In my experience most games load with my laptop volume at 80% as you said, but some may need less volume. I usually start with very low volumes and move up unti...

Re: Oric-1 16k memory management

Just guessing here, but most probably the ULA is the same, so screen is at the same location in 16 & 48K models. Same as ROM is in c000 to ffff.

And I also think there were no 16K Atmos. Cannot remember where I got this from, however.

Re: BomberZ.bas and bas2tap ..

Or even simpler anything not being a reserved word is a label unless in an assignment expression (in which it would be a variable). You don't really need line numbers (you can generate them in the end and substitute labels with the corresponding line number. I think any parser can handle that easily...
