Re: Merging video output?

Well, thanks to the recent great work of Mike Brown on ULA documenting we can move on! :) Important : All information about the undocumented feature of ULA's pin19 - Red video line is confirmed and working exactly as in the MJB Documentation/Schematics ! Here is the new simple schematic I've created...

Re: Taptap v2018 : bug fixes, improvements

Great! I like it. Here is one quick solution for GetCiommandLine: function GetCommandLine : pchar; {$ifdef win32} stdcall;external KernelDLL name 'GetCommandLineA'; {$else} var I: Integer; S: String; begin S := ''; for I := 1 to ParamCount do S := S + ParamStr(I); GetCommandLine := ^S; end; {$endif}...

Re: California Devices Inc and the HCS10017

Absolutely incredible work! Thank you all Mike Brown, Mike Connors/Datel and dreamseal. In our Oric are hidden lot of secrets but 2 questions related to ULA puzzled me for years and I lost hope to found the right answers... Q1: Why they connect ONLY the Blue (actually the Red ) video line with R26 (...

Re: Taptap v2018 : bug fixes, improvements

Cool and very useful tool, thanks! I tried to compile it for Linux with Lazarus but build failed. After some hacking it seams promising (need to find replacement for TDirectory, TPath ...). But I wonder if it will be better to rewrite it again :mrgreen: in C for portability and add the sources to OS...

Re: Downloadable old magazines

I don't know how, but I have them all ;).
I've uploaded them temporary to GoogleDrive HERE, access is granted to everyone.
@Dbug: Pls, notify me when you transfer the files to your library so I can remove them from GD.

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

Great progress, ThomH! After I copied ROM related files to the proper directories everything work under macOS+Xcode. Attached you can find my updated (actually newly rewritten) rotation speed tester for Oric+DISK][ interface in DSK/NIB/WOZ format. (NIB doesn't work for me in Clock Signal). Now speed...

Re: TapOric - android TAP player for Oric

TapOric is definitely live, but it's on pause until I decide if it will support CSAVE-ing, which is bit tricky and not always working. :)
Maybe I should just release the CLOAD-only version...

Re: Re-encoding Oricutron captures for Youtube

Thanks for the useful tips!
Additionally if you need to cut your video use options "-ss hh:mm:ss" to set start time and/or "-t hh:mm:ss" to set duration. :wink:

Re: Oric Atmos Boot-Up Query

You're not alone! :)
And I think I have one more Atmos with the same issue.
I don't know why this really happens, but it's interesting for investigation.

Re: Reverse engineering the 6522 VIA chip?

IMO, all chips on eBay with sellers from Bulgaria are fine. They are remains after Pravetz 8D production was stopped. I don't see any reason someone to put effort and resources to fake exactly Oric's ULA expecting to sell no more than 2-3 pieces :). EDIT: If needed I can send some pieces "as sacrifi...

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

Thanks for the release, ThomH! I will try it definitely because I'm unable to create usable executable with XCode. Actually everything is compiled without errors/warnings, but when I try to start it I have just blank window. Maybe I have problem with missing ROM images at the right place... Thanks a...
