[ORIC HD] Final release of the USB key reader and micro sdcard on the 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.

[ORIC HD] Final release of the USB key reader and micro sdcard on the Oric

Post by jede » Wed Aug 16, 2017 2:13 pm

I finished it 2 months ago, but i did not post any message here.

Here is the final release of the usbcard reader (ORIC HD) : http://orix.oric.org/doku.php?id=orix:hardware:news

Please read this page (it works on atmos but there is no software to handle it).

If someone wants it let me know.

I should release 5 electronics cards for the atmos before the end of this year.

Nice jede!

Do you mean that there is no software "driver" to use it on the Atmos?

What would be needed to have, say, simple commands as cat/dir, cd, and load to use it for loading games?

I wrote theses routines. For example, Orix needs at least 32 KB of ROM (telemon and Orix), and a ram overlay access.

The main problem is how to store it :
1) i could load it from a tape file, but i can not access to overlay ram with an atmos without FDC
2) i could modify cload and csave, but everybody should change this ROM to an eeprom.
3) I could start it on microdisc, but i would like to avoid it, because this extension was created to avoid to start anything on floppy disc.
