Tried briefly the 16K version, and have to say it's a nice work at 1st glance.
Strange little things here or there but nothing important.

Loaded the Ultra and Harrier Attack, both ran fine but were rather unplayable due to the small size of my phone (hence small keyboard keys).

DBug posted here that his friend built Oricutron for Android and it wasn't too difficult. The problem is that there is no touch interface in the code, so you would need a bluetooth keyboard to use it :)

Also file selection would be suboptimal etc. etc.

It just needs someone to do that extra work.

Salutations OulanB et Bravo pour cet émulateur supplémentaire.

It seems my old archos tablet is not compatible (android 2)
I looked in the play store with the tablet and there is nothing :?

Hello

That works with my HP Slate7 tablet, the oric emulator gives 4854 bytes free, but the sound is poor, and nothing appears in the Android site with a keyword like "oric"
(free version)

Nice work !

Having a good sound (synced with the display) is not an easy task on android see http://heatvst.com/wp/2013/11/30/high-p ... esnt-work/. That is why the full emulator has many settings about the sound and display.

To be short. The quality of the sound depend on the hardware chip used in your android device (alas, so many devices, so many sound chips). On a nexus 7 first model, I have no problem at all I can use a display rate at 20 ms (so 50 frame/sec) and a sound at 44.1KHz. But on a Kobo you can only use a display rate of 50 ms (so 20 frames/sec) at 44.1 KHz.

The free app is locked at 50ms and 44.1KHz. The full one allow you to choose from 20, 30, 40, 50, 100, 150 ms and 48, 44.1, 24, 22.05, 16, 8 KHz.

In fact you need to know the native output frequency of your android sound chip. To measure it use https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... buffersize

You will get the native frequency of your device and the hardware native buffersize. Dividing your native frequency by the buffersize gives you the maximal frames/sec your device can deliver. See some result for various devices at http://audiobuffersize.appspot.com

EDIT :

for the free app search goOric16 on google play, for the full featured one search goOric (you need at least android 2.3 to use them)

Don't forget GRAB command in basic to have 12K of free ram (but only in text mode ...)

Kenneth, could you try the 'audiobuffersize' app and tell me the result of native frequency and buffersize for the HP Slate7 tablet ?

I could then adjust goOric16 ...

buffer size 1024
sample rate 44.1 kHz
:wink:

Nota:

I tried the program once again with a small Basic program, and I notice that the sound is good (I did not understand what happened... :?: :shock: )
Finally, it works. :mrgreen:

Greetings OulanB,
I have goOric, full version, installed on my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 running Android 7 Nougat.
However, it crashes immediately every single time.
What is your advice?
