I've done the same, with the original one and with this: https://www.micomputer.es/en/oric/149-o ... upply.html
This is exactly the one I am using that works with my Cumana Reborn here. So we can rule that out as a cause indeed it seems.

It looks under-powered to me, but I'm no expert.
Might that be a cause? I do not use an original PSU and here it works perfect.

Re: A new well-known compiler

Strange indeed. But for me the conclusion stays the same: if you want to code purely in C, CC65 is the only viable choice for Oric Atmos at the moment. Quite literally so actally: I never tried Vbcc, but my game in C only just fits in memory with CC65, absolutely does not fit in memory using the OSD...

Re: Web browsing on the Oric?

No clue about Contiki, but this is how I get webbrowsing working on my Texas Instruments TI-99/4a: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5771_e0Ff4 But that uses a Raspberry Pi for the network access, not sure how that compares to the 8 bit hub (which is Arduino based). Works pretty cool though. Like the...

Re: Request for Help (Pixel-Level Retouching)

so maybe a proper image editor is doable on the Oric :) Not doable by me ;-) And would myself by far prefer an Oric version of CharPad for Windows 10, or, even better, CharPad to not only support Commodore targets, but also Oric (and TI, Spectrum, etc). But I guess both are rather wishful thinking ...

Re: Request for Help (Pixel-Level Retouching)

Is not one of the Twilighte tools up to that task? http://twilighte.oric.org/twinew/start.htm and maybe especially this one: https://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=900 Not sure as I never dared to touch pixel precise graphics myself, especially not AIC. Graphic design is not my forte. L...

Re: ORICART - smart cartridge for Oric by [raxiss]

You know I am not very keen on software that need expansions that did not exist back then (or worse, with technology that did not exist back then), Oh, I mostly agree. I have never used the turbo CPU speed on my Ultimate64 yet, and extra graphics for me defeats the purpose of retro. Network access ...

Re: ORICART - smart cartridge for Oric by [raxiss]

I *think* the former is not, because it does not seem to have a second expansion connector :) And that is exactly why I can perfectly understand why as a developer 'keep it simple' is the best way to go, but that I as potential user have some thoughts on it ;-) It would be really cumbersome to have...

Re: ORICART - smart cartridge for Oric by [raxiss]

This is by the way the movie format the C64 demo scene has developed, maybe helpful as inspiration (although both graphics and sound of course significantly differ from Oric), sorry that it is in German:

Re: ORICART - smart cartridge for Oric by [raxiss]

By the way: if you could extent your OpenOriclib for CC65 with file read/write support for this and hopefully also an EMM (extended memory manager) driver for it, that would be totally great!

(my last C128 project in C was using the C128 EMM driver to access the upper 64 kilobyte of the C128)

Yes, it's on the conveyor already :). next.png Seriously, the next device will offer internet connectivity and I'm very proud with some unique 'inventions' in it (like ROM-less booting :twisted: ) Awesome!

Super!

Any plans to add also network support? If you can access it from the PC over WiFi or cable, that would be really awesome.

Re: Atmos SPACE key stuck

Plunger is broken I see in upper left corner. Logical then that the key gets stuck. See this video DBug posted in reply to an earlier question by a.o. me: https://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopic.php?p=24769#p24769 So basically the only thing to do seems to acquire a second keyboard and get the plu...
