Apart me and my own Atmos, I am rather very skeptical about finding more fellow Oricians here in Japan. :(

But who knows...
Well, based on the tracking information for my 8bit hub, it's possible there is an Orician in Kyoto.
That would be good news !

Oric Atmos mod 63(b)

Just a question for specialists:

Is it worth doing this mod on ATMOS if there is no boot problem ?

Thanks in advance for your comments.

Re: ORIC in Japan

The website where I found this ad says it comes from a Japanese magazine from year 1983, that is to say one year after the Oric-1 was first launched in the UK. If you also look at the (fake) stamps on the (fake) envelope, you can see they are British ones. The ad also says Odessa (in fact Trans Worl...

Re: ORIC in Japan

Maybe there are archives in japan that can be searched? I have been looking for a long time now and never found anything... This ad was for a mail order company called Odessa, and I guess this company was just trying to sell some popular European computers on the Japanese market without really succ...

ORIC in Japan

Just found an interesting ad on the Web :D :

Oric.jpg

Though I do not know whether an Oric was ever sold here...

(It seems the original ad had two pages, but only the second one survived).

Re: Atmos, WDC65C02 and WDC65C22N and other

Thanks for your explanations.

My ATMOS boots normally with the W65C22N and its original CPU (ie. 6502). It also boots normally with the W65C02 and its original 6522 VIA.

It starts to boot with a W65C22N and a W65C02 but then freezes.

That is the issue I cannot explain.

This resistor is rather used for contrast adjustment.

Re: Cumana Reborn and OLED display

Sure, here are some details: The 1602 OLED display was bought in an online shop in Japan called KYOHRITSU. https://eleshop.jp/shop/g/gC4P123/ I guess you can however found the same kind of displays in your area. Just remember to choose a 5V one and not 3.3V. If you want to install this display, you ...

Cumana Reborn and OLED display

Just to show how the Cumana Reborn can be nice and match ATMOS colours, by swapping its original LCD display for an OLED one: Cumana.jpeg I just had to enlarge the opening in the bezel in order to fit the new OLED display. Of course, if you also swap the flat cable for a black one, the final result ...

Re: Atmos, WDC65C02 and WDC65C22N and other

@retroric: I have just found the article by Fabrice F. you mentioned in your post. The 15,625 Khz the Oric generates should not be a major problem to connect it to a VGA monitor, provided that monitor is able to handle such a signal. Here is a list of modern monitors supporting 15 Khz analog signal...

Re: Atmos, WDC65C02 and WDC65C22N and other

Another weird thing is when I launch the excellent DIAGROM (without any add-on cards): with the original VIA fitted, the "timer test" passes but when a 65C22N is inserted, timer test fails. As the code was written and tested against a 6522A (as standard) it's likely that it's missing something that...
