np, thanks to you for spotting the issue :)

I think it is a problem in tap2cd. I thought I had added a silence after the game in the generated wav, but maybe some players don't like it or produce artifacts... Strange that the normal tap from tap2wav does not exhibit this issue...

BTW, if you pm me your email address I can send you a copy for you to test before uploading the official update.

Here is my Oric setup loading the new version of the game. It loads the .wav file thru portable mp3 player.

The game loads perfectly and after pressing the key, I can play it without any problem.

Really nice vid, thanks!

I have updated the webpage with the 1.2 version. It would be nice if some players try to test it and see if there is anything broken...

Getting the vsysnc hack to work seems easier (in oricutron) - had one or two problems before but not with v1.2.

Zero time to play sadly - so nothing to add for the new release which is good news in the end :mrgreen:
Well done Chema, amazing how you code masters push the Oric limits in so many different areas.

It's an accolade usually given to any game with a 90% rating or above and originates from the old Commodore 64 magazine Zzap!64.

Now that's cool ain't it? I bet no one thought back in 1983 that we'd still be seeing magazine game reviews in 2014! Not only that, but also games scoring 91%! :D :D :D
