Re: Krillys - real hardware and tape!

I guess it didn't sell that well as there were a lot of cassette inlays left over. This is one of the reasons it was chosen as a freebie with Sedoric. Those that registered got the Sedoric manual and Krillys inlay. Tapes are so slow after using disks. I only use them when I don't have the game on d...

Re: dflat - work in progress game and deployment question

Thank you everyone for the ideas and guidance. I think to load dflat in to RAM would be quite a compromise - not only is the 16K ROM range not used, but as dflat needs the full 16K of space, means taking 16K away from free RAM (need to leave space for hi-res etc.). However it is an option - although...

Krillys - real hardware and tape!

I thought this might bring some memories.. I have had the Oric-1 since 1983 and the Krillys tape and tape player since around 1984. Using the same hardware I had as a boy, I was amazed that the tape loaded and played perfectly only a few days ago after 37 years. I have done no maintenance on the tap...

dflat - work in progress game and deployment question

Hello fellow Oric enthusiasts! I have not been able to post something so recently, but I have been working on some more example of programs using my dflat system ROM; a fast structured (integer) BASIC interpreter with inline assembler. I thought I would share it here and also ask your opinion on a q...

Re: BASIC 10 Liner Competition - Oric Entry

...and the official rang list: oric-winner.jpg IMHO - Oric is the best! :lol: Congrats to @6502Nerd and @rax again! My personal gift for the both winners is a cartridge ORICART with their 10-liners! I am absolutely amazed and delighted! When I let folks here know about the competition and then saw ...

Some episodes and Lander game using dflat

Hello, I hope everyone is well! I have been making some updates to dflat - mainly small additions and some bugs found that needed to be fixed. I also made some videos on YT explaining how to program a simple Lunar Lander style game in dflat. I start off using only dflat, but the final video shows ho...

Re: BASIC 10 Liner Competition - Oric Entry

These are terrific. You are truly an Oric hero! All of you guys are! What a sweet collection of neat, fun things. Totally concur - very nice programming by rax! Although there are some excellent games for other platforms in just 10 lines - for me part of the reason to enter was to show the Oric, an...

Re: dflat language update

Wow, this opens up a whole new world of possibilities with dflat now, right? Gotta add bank switching, and suddenly you've got up to 512k to play with? Maybe there'd be enough space now, to add DOS support to dflat? This is the one thing that gives me pause so far .. For my homebrew computer, I hav...

Re: Lovebyte party - size coding

Wow, this is challenging - I definitely will not have time to make something so small that is in any way interesting!

I can easily load it on ram slot too. https://www....

dflat - version 0.12

although I do note it's rather picky about what hardware is needed.. True alas, and more disturbing: no way to predict up front yet. It is just try and see if it works (which by the way the maker is very transparent about). Will have a look if time permits. Only my problem is that because of my lim...

Re: ORIC NEXT

Sounds like a great plan, Magoric. You should check out the dflat project if you haven't already, it was built by 6502Nerd, who designed his own 6502-based computer and will, I believe, form the basis of his new machine - which itself may end up having a lot more in common with an "Oric Next" than ...
