TrackOric - android "something" for Oric

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.

TrackOric - android "something" for Oric

Post by iss » Mon Aug 14, 2017 12:37 am

Hello everybody,
During my work on TapOric,
I suddenly realized: it would be relatively easy, using TAP-like transfer,
to convert any smart phone in TrackPad for Oric!
I started already the implementation and hope to have something working very soon!

@Chema: Oh, how I wish to play "Blacke's 7" with my Track(Pad)Oric... ;)

Amazing good idea!
And no extra hardware except the audio cable...
I love that!

The idea is cool, but I doubt I could add support for it... :(

I even doubt I could add support for joysticks... and not sure I can afford the space needed to tweak the disk code to support the Telestrat!

Yeah, my free space is almost zero. And I mean less than 200 bytes. And I need most of it (each game resource in disk needs space in tables in memory, for example)

I am struggling to make all fit!
:cry:

No pressure from my side. Let see first if the idea will work at all ...
