For your information, emulation had been merged into oricutron github repo.

Here is a full archive (windows) : ...

It contains the preview i did at ceo meeting.

Please note that '/bin' is the only folder in PATH

Stratsed is loaded, because oricutron starts with a microdisc, but Orix does not need any floppy disk

* Ghostbusters music in MYM format (Dbug's code)
* 4kkong (Dbug's code)
* Times of lore Story book (Twilighte's code)
* Stormlord (Twilighte's code)
* Telemon 3.0 (F. Broche and Jede)
* Orix 1.0 (Jede)
* touch (Jede)
* file (Jede)
* Hello world (Jede)
* viewhires (Jede) which will be renamed into viewhrs in the future. With some pictures in /usr/share/viewhrs
* in demo folder : argc demo (Jede)
* use help for more options (reboot, starting atmos rom,pwd, cd, uname,cat,ls, text,hires;date)

Next update soon :)

Note that this demo works on real hardware too :)

And here is the official site :

It needs some update. There is some samples. So anybody can start build apps on this. Assembler can be done easily. For cc65, it's not merged on the official github repository, but i can send you all the stuff to code in C

cc65 supports now telestrat target : telemon 2.4 and 3.0. You can code in C for Orix/telemon 3.0.

Note that there are these issues :

conio, rs232, joystick/mouse supports are coming soon :)

you should note that it's impossible to put a code on a stratsed floppy disk (i don't know any tool for this).

and here some docs :

New tool for Orix : bootfd

It starts microdisk bootsector.

Video :

(please read bootfd section :)

Working demo :
Demo working with this way (emulator only for instance):
quintessential (but it crashed after picture of super tomato, maybe it tries to return to atmos rom.)
OricTech (Working on real telestrat)
pushingtheenvelope (Working on real telestrat)

Demo does not work yet :


Please note that i am correcting demo in order to have it working on real telestrat. I did : OricTech and Pushing the envelop

Thank a for o65 linking to cc65, this is the tool i was trying to link with cc65 :)

For information, OricTech demo and PushingEnvelope are working on real telestrat, bootfd is only a tool to read and start bootsector.

I corrected FDC calls in order to have code working on real telestrat.

You can download version here :
and ... -2249.html

Space99 is also working on real telestrat (intro and game) with Stratoric, but i did not release yet this version, because i have to fix the reboot trick (to switch intro to game)

This is looking better and better :)

What an impressive work you are doing, Jede!!!

I am not a fan of the Telestrat, but certainly you are making it interesting to say the least!
