Re: Skool Daze

The first piece of software I added to my Erebus was Chema's amazing version of Skool Daze for the Oric! I can confirm it's fully working and looks incredible on a real Oric Atmos. Now, I've got to get over to the Map Room quick for Geography before Withit comes looking for me... :D image_2021-02-10...

Re: Hello from Bristol

oric erebus.png The Erebus has arrived for my Oric Atmos! It came preloaded with a few TAP files -- including a side-scroller called Krillys, pictured here! And I had a go at Scuba Dive.

Re: Hello from Bristol

I'm delighted to see such love for Bristol and to discover the role of Great Western Railways in the Oriculator!

When lockdown ends, we can all meet up in Bristol for an Oricbash + cider! 8)

Re: Hello from Bristol

Hello Thank you all for your greetings! I have ordered an Erebus -- hopefully should have it next week! I am keen to try tapes! I have a cassette recorder, but no software on cassette... yet... Tonight I tried saving a simple BASIC programme to cassette. I have a 7 pin connector to MIC, EAR, REM cab...
