Re: Lode Runner for Oric by [raxiss]

Haha! Load Runner! Have the original (and still working) Commodore 64 floppy still. One (of my admittingly very few) not 'unofficial copied' games. Curious how the Oric version will compare soon, but great to have another game where I can do a side by side comparison on two screens with the C64 vers...

Re: use OSDK under Linux ?

Thanks again Iss! With your pointers, adapted the make file to execute the disk in emulator using make run. And did some further variable optimizations. Added make run-debug as well, seems to work, but really have to delve into how to create the necessary files from the CC65 compiler. Never used thi...

Re: use OSDK under Linux ?

Update: Now have my Oric build chain fully converted to Linux (Ubuntu): - CC65 compiled for Linux - OSDK compiled for Linux - Oricutron compiled for Linux - and even the HxC software tools compiled for Linux, including a command line version to include in my Makefile. To investigate: - OricExplorer ...

Re: use OSDK under Linux ?

I am certainly going to use make, as I use that already on my TI, Commodore and Spectrum projects. Like the flexibility of make, but your project management system probably is way more advanced ;-) Actually was already using a makefile for my Ludo game to build the binaries from source under WSL, ju...

Thank you so much, Iss!
Works perfectly. Now have the OSDK tools working under Ubuntu.

Re: use OSDK under Linux ?

Question (and sorry to be a Linux n00b): If I try to build using the makefile under Linux, first thing I encounter is that it includes a rules.mk which seem not to be included. What should be the content of that file? And would the absence of that file why I, after commenting out this include for ru...

Re: use OSDK under Linux ?

See meanwhile that the repo at https://osdn.net/projects/oricsdk/scm/s ... osdk/main/ does include Makefiles.

So will try to build using them after I succeeded in setting up my Linux PC.

Re: use OSDK under Linux ?

Any update on this? I am looking to move all my retro build chains (next to the Oric, also Commodore, ZX Spectrum and TI-99/4a targets) to the fullest extent possible to Linux (Ubuntu) on a dedicated Linux PC. Now use mostly Windows Subsystems for Linux (with Ubuntu), with for the Oric now a hybrid ...

Re: Oric HFE file

Then you simply have to convert your hfe file to dsk(Oric) and a second time from dsk(Oric) to dsk (Oric) and it's work you can do all you want with OricExplorer or Emulator and then convert back to hfe and use in a real Oric. Works! Many thanks! Is a lttle bit cumbersome all that conversions, but ...

Re: Oric HFE file

So, it's time to add some improvements to Oricutron. Not only Oricutron, at least also OricExplorer..... not sure, but maybe also TAP2DSK from OSDK? For me as a user my problem that there seems not to be a viable way to get data back from the original hardware using the Cumana Reborn. So actually, ...

Between 100 and 200 "end users" per month flash the HxC firmware to Gotek. There is nothing difficult and this can be done with a simple usb cable.... Or like you do today, with an usb stick :D
Not my text 😉just a copy paste. Will add quote tag to make that clear.

Re: Oric HFE file

Once all the "hidden" dsk format constraints/specifications are cleared, i will be able to evaluate this possibility. Please note that many (most?) Oric dsk images are corrupted/malformed : Bad header, bad sync word, bad crc... The hardware will reject most of them. The emulator will have to fix th...

Re: Oric HFE file

It seems that the HxC firmware for Gotek is missing on this page ;) Well, unless there is another one again I assume that is the middle one…. https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&u=https://gotek.nl/gotek-firmwares HXC: HXC originated sometime in 2006 as a private project to keep the...

Re: Oric HFE file

By the way, DBug, I did find a nice page explaining the different firmwares, but alas it is in Dutch. But maybe Google translate helps. https://gotek.nl/gotek-firmwares/ And Jeff: any possibility of natively supporting Oric DSK in your firmware removing any need to convert to and from HFE? Am sure t...

Re: Oric HFE file

Good call, Jeff. Tried Euphoric, and guess what, the image does work: Schermafbeelding 2021-05-15 165901.png So I think we can now confirm that Oricutron is apparently to blame. Funny thing is that Oric Explorer also can not read adapted images. So question: Can there be any reason why the DOS (Euph...
