Re Oric Atmos Serial Port

This is the right place to discuss on how to implement hardware vsync, adding a VIA or AY chipset, puting multiple roms, or how to design a new flash expansion card.

Re Oric Atmos Serial Port

Post by jdavis6809 » Thu Mar 05, 2015 4:50 pm

Hello,

I have been googling a lot to do with serial port (2 days) for the oric atmos (as it does not have one, easy to make).

I have seen and downloaded one interface the uses the 1Mhz bus that's ok, nothing else.

But I have not been able to fine any terminal programme to connect to the pc does anything exists or not?

or any kind of pc link programme for rs232 serial port (to transfer disk files to and from the oric atmos).

What's out there because I unable to find anything (tried looking under telestrat because it has a serial port).

I did find modem.dsk file but that's no good.

Regards

I think John is Talking about a real Oric. This thread is about emulation.

Hello,

what tread emulation?

tread says oric hardware and extensions

I now know from older treads I have read that this has come up before.

I would really like to try building a serial port interface but with no software.

Hardware skills ok software skills for basic and machine code I lack somewhat. ok with embedded C AVR

I can read machine code and basic but not write it

give me some code I can change it but to start from scratch no.

regards

Hello,

I have had a play with modem.dsk on a emulator.

it does have rs232 terminal build in, no hand shaking just xon /xoff (its a bit crude and not easy to setup)

Does have on screen help, settings have to be made every time you boot it

I will try and setup with emulator and com1 set to hyperterminal on the laptop to see if I can send and receive ok

Then I will build the serial hardware interface.

Does anybody have manual for this program, does not matter if it is in French?

Regards

No but here is some information about Oric serial interfaces (in French):
http://oric.free.fr/oric_serial.txt

Maybe it can help (IIRC especially at which address in Oric memory set the interface)

Thanks for translation!
It was fun for me to solve the hidden puzzle in BASIC example:

Code: Select all

POKE #321, PEEK(#321) GOLD 16
I was very curious to understand what the new logical operator "GOLD" means 8) .

Hehe :) Google Translator (or other such automatic translator) does not like when you mix French and English (like the BASIC keywords...).
