Of course this is joke, but here are the facts:
It follows the real storyline of "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope".
It has 3372 frames, they are played at ~1fps which gives almost 1 hour.
Download, unzip attached "startwars.tap.zip" and load it in Oricutron.
Get your favorite drink, big box with popcorn and enjoy the movie.
During playback press and hold for a while 'space' for pause or (if you feel bored) 'escape' to quit.
I tested this release with Oricutron only, probably it will not work with real Oric. And like many other movies here is the "Making of":
Currently I'm working on my project "Commpack" for Oric. It will contain some utility programs and demos which use
the ACIA+modem emulation in Oricutron v1.2. For now ready are: kind of small ntp client, geo location tool and
telnet client with vt100 (80x24) terminal emulation which works in HIRES and supports 60 visible text columns.
I plan to add irc-client and kind of RSS news reader.
During my tests of the telnet client I found "Star Wars" for telnet.
To watch the original use your Windows/Linux/OSX telnet client:
Code: Select all
so I decided to download the "movie" and convert it for off-line watching.
I hope to have enough time, so I can finish and release the "Commpack" for Oric until next month.
Than I'll start the hardware part of the project "Oric communicator" - RS232 and networking for the real Oric!
