Disc based games

Now that I have a Cumana Reborn, I want to get the best out of my Atmos. Can you guys recommend the best disc-based games to download, please?

I already have Space 1999, Blake's 7, 1337.

Re: Oric repairs

Update. So it has been repaired. Apparently, it was a motherboard quality issue. No component needed replacing but careful soldering was required. Ian socketed the important chips, just in case.

Re: Oric repairs

My Atmos is currently with Mutant Caterpillar for repair. I'll report back on the service once it is repaired.

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

I know it's been a while since anyone commented but I have just started to play this game on my Cumana Reborn. The whole look of this game is amazing and it really makes you think. It is thoroughly enjoyable. The music and graphics are outstanding. If only we had games of this quality back in the day.

Re: Cumana reborn issue

That's better!! 8) The difficulty is the simultaneous start of the units to avoid crashing any of the units. Three-way power is a good solution. PS: The photo is very good, it could have illustrated a computer magazine of the 80s... Imagine if we had that technology and quality of games in the 80s!

Re: My new Cumana drive ;)

Finally got mine to work with a new 2amp power supply and 3-way splitter to power everything at once. Love how it looks and expands the Oric to whole new levels.

Re: Cumana reborn issue

I believe I have resolved the issue by using a new 2amp power supply and 3-way splitter connected to everything at once.

I wonder, could playing with RV1 at the bottom of the Oric help?
I'm not very technical. Although I have had this Oric since new, I only ever played games. Could you elaborate on what you mean please, and what that would achieve? Thanks.

Cumana reborn issue

I have recently bought a lovely new Cumana reborn drive. Upon turning on the device, whilst it is connected to the Atmos, the Atmos crashes as per the pic. I can't get the drive to load a game. Is this a power issue and if so, what is the resolution? I have a new 2amp power supply, and the original ...
