Oric Atmos going cheap!!

Post by dave3622 » Fri May 31, 2013 3:14 pm

I just found this classified ad for an Oric Atmos with approx 45/50 games, books etc for the princely sum of £20. :shock:

http://www.preloved.co.uk/adverts/show/ ... 1960s.html

Unfortunately the seller lives in Hertfordshire and it is collection only. I am unable to travel such a distance to collect but anyone who lives close enough could get themselves quite a bargain!!

I have it on disk if anyone wants it. I'll have to have a search to see if I've got it on tape, but I should have.

If you have this game on tape that would be wonderful :o

Are you able to transfer the game to a TAP file? If not, I would be more than happy to do this. I could either buy the tape from yourself or I could transfer the game to TAP if you were prepared to send me the cassette. I would return it immediately once I had transfered it and also send you a cheque for the costs incurred for postage & packaging. Please PM me if this is possible and I will give you my address.

Had a look and can't find a tape - not sure what happened there.
The disk version isnt' easy to convert to tape IIRC.

I've found a different disk with separate files and a loader which should be easier to convert to a tape image.
I'll see if I can convert it.
