Every time I see these new graphics styles I just can't believe its an Oric screen I'm looking at! :) I played a few hours of Pulsoids last night, on the Pandora build of Oricutron .. simply rocks to have such quality software on the Oric platform at last. Just wanted to let you guys know: you are s...

I am looking at adding a remap feature to oricutron for the Pandora, so that the d-pad and buttons can be mapped to any Oric keys .. seems this will be quite easy so I will do this before I release. Actually, come to think of it maybe I will just finish the port to PandoraOS, then send Peter a patch...

Indeed: Space:1999 4K Kong O-Thrust Pulsoids Pinfocom .. in an Oric bundle.. Great! Almost done with the port - it runs very well, loads TAPS and DSK and so on, but I still have yet to fix a keyboard issue, and then build a PND with the right files for the Pandora environment. Apropos the keyboard i...

Yes, if you want it (in it's current state) you can use it, that would be nice. I saw your other post, but didn't consider O-Thrust "worthy" (complete enough). I *definitely* think its worthy, so I'll include it along Space:1999 as two games for the Oric from the new-releases scene .. and I'm sure ...

I'm not trying to profit - I just want to see more people exposed to the wonderful world of Oric software! So I promise and guarantee that if I distribute an Oricutron-Pandora build in the Pandora appstore, it will be absolutely, 100% non-profit and 100% free, with all attribution to the authors of ...

Totally Free Oric ROMS?

Well, with the Open Pandora gaming console shipping now (see http://openpandora.org), and with emulation being one of the hottest applications for the Pandora in general, I'm predicting that in the coming months we will see a new generation of people getting interested in the Oric/Atmos hardware aga...

Oricutron borked?

I am on revision 168 of the Oricutron sources (from SVN) and have been having some problems with this build on my system - which was working fine in earlier revisions, although I have not reverted to see if that is still the case (will do, though) .. The problems I have having: First of all, my syst...

I was told that it was possible to use a 3.5" FD, in DD mode (if you can find one that supports *real* DD), so I guess so .. but the question is whether you can find a 3.5" DD floppy drive these days ..
