Oric DSK Manager

Post by Chema » Thu Mar 15, 2018 8:39 pm

Hey guys, great news!

Completely out of the blue and after many requests by some Spanish Oric users, overCLK, yet another Spanish Orician released this fantastic tool for editing a Sedoric (only for now) disk images. You can use drag and drop to inject/extract files from taps or other dsk. You can generate a bootable sedoric disk, set the INIST... everything.

Have a look here http://www.retrowiki.es/viewtopic.php?f ... p200093371

The application is developed in java (so it is multiplatform) and is in Spanish and English. You can get it directly here https://github.com/teiram/oric-dsk-mana ... er-0.1.jar

Beware it is still an alpha, so there will be bugs around.

This is fantastic!

Oh cool :-D
I can shelve my never-finished-still-in-mind-but-no-time-for old VB tool ("Oric Disk Manager", belive it or not :lol: ).
Don't have room anymore on my old PC for Java and Maven, but it looks great! Will definitely try it if I ever buy a new computer.

If the author is seeking for future ideas: handling Sedoric 4, with directories :P

New version with some bugs solved. Now supporting double side disks.

Impressive little piece of software, full support of drag and drop, you can add, extract and manage files in a sedoric disk very easily. Guys you should give it a try.

Written in Java, no need for installation, multi-platform... and sources included!

Hadn't noticed the .JAR version.
Just tried it but got "unexpected error" while loading a DSK file (Sedoric 2.1 or Sedoric 3).

Strange, but possible :D let me know the dsk you tried to open, because I tried with many of them, both opening them or adding their files to another disk, and it worked quite well...

Hmm, I was so happy to not have any reason anymore to keep the Oracle/Sun security nightmare software.
Is there a way to run this software without installing hundreds of megabytes of insecure stuff?

Well, I am not the author :) but sources are there, so porting it so something else should not be impossible.

In any case, at least it is multiplatform. It is also still a 0.3 version, so testing and bug hunting is needed.

Here are the two files I tried.
ANIM fails, the other shows a few files then stops while adding files.

Build from sources worked for me. There are problems with few images, but most probably the images are bad.
I like the possibility when dropping more images to merge their content. Nice structured application.
Well done!

Thanks Symoon. I am not sure if it will handle disks other than SEDORIC 3, but I will send those not working to the author.

If a disk image works on the emulator, it should work here too.

You're welcome, the tool is promising.
ANIM is a Sedoric 2.1 disk, the other is Sedoric 3.

IIRC there is no big difference between the two for the disk structure.
What drove me away at the time to do more than "rename files" in ODM (the old one) was that any other disk change required to recompute many things, so it should work just like an emulator after all. Along with the fact that I never found how to drag&drop with the old Visual Basic!
