I guess there are two possible types of implementations: - outside - inside The outside would need two male DIN connectors to plug on the Oric tape and rgb sockets, two female DIN connectors on which plugging the real tape drive cable and tv cable. And then yes, you have to figure out where to get t...

If you can put together a list of "quirks" and "oddities", I will add that to the FAQ and things to watch out when using the osdk. I guess you are the first one trying to use some multi-platform code directly. I always did very simple C code from scratch, so yeah, different usage patterns shows spec...

Re: vsync cable.

just a quick question for people who have one, does it mess with the tape loading so it has to be removed first? if it does then why not just linik the sync output and the tape-relay signal through a nand gate or something so the sync signal is blocked when the tape runs? Yes it messes the tape loa...

How is defined your "int16" ?

By default in the osdk we have:
char=8 bits
short=int=long=16 bits
float=36 bits (5 bytes internal BASIC ROM format)

Sure, but you are not supposed to use any identifier in C starting by a double underscore. It's reserved to the compiler implementation.

Looks like I will need to publish the source code of the whole package earlier than planned :)

Re: problem with osdk ?

I'm not sure what's causing it... I can't seem to declare static inline funcs, but declaring them non inline errors out because of duplicated symbol. "inline" is not an ANSI C concept (for what I know), but static functions are, so a static function in a .C file should work. If it does not, I guess...

For the DOS, all there is need for is basicaly to work from what Fabrice Frances did: Use an existing Oric DOS (Randos, Sedoric, ...) and just adapt the low level access code. For Sedoric, there are a lot of people in the Club Europe Oric who have pretty good knowledge of Sedoric internals, and coul...

Agreed.

This must be the most strangest decision I've seen for a long while.

I really don't think a large flash device would be required but any additional space could be filled with utilities. Yep, kind of "Ultimate Ripper", or "Action Replay" cartridge. Could contain a disassembler, a debugger, memory sprite ripper/inspecter, save/reload feature (freeze the state of the m...

Re: Hooking up a Oric to a Commodore RGB monitor in Canada

I recently purchased a commodore monitor that has a RGB socket and I was wondering if a Oric-1 will work with it. Giving us the monitor model would help a lot :) If its a 1081, 1083, 1084 (normal or "S" variants), you have to know that the answer is yes. Actually it's a vibrant yes, because you wil...

Vortex Tracker

If you people are willing to try on doing YM music for Oric demos or games, please take a look at the vortex tracker: http://bulba.at.kz/vortex_e.htm It's a Windows program, mostly aimed at MSX/Sinclair machines, but it can exports in many formats, is able to load a large library of existing musics ...

Yes and no. A working 48k Atmos + Microdisc is a perfectly good combination, good enough for doing any kind of game. With the overlay memory, there is enough memory, the microdisc is fast enough, and the sound is quite ok. The real problem is that it's hard to find a working configuration, the hardw...
