I rue the day I gave my old tapes to my little sister to "do whatever she wanted with them" .. ah the memories lost.

Re: SEDORIC extended BASIC commands syntax samples/manual?

Coming along nicely - I don't think the pawns are too fat. I look forward to seeing how you handle the menu situation.

Nice work!

Re: SEDORIC extended BASIC commands syntax samples/manual?

Twilighte was a font of glorious knowledge for us Oric hackers. Fortunately he pushed a lot of stuff to his repo's - there is deep, deep knowledge to be gained by reading the sources of his projects. If you haven't already, check out the amazing use of attributes in PULSOIDS and Wurlde .. he was tru...

Re: SEDORIC extended BASIC commands syntax samples/manual?

Cool project, and nice to hear your thoughts. For my part, I've also been bashing away at some Oric things over the years, and had a period of interest in SED programming on Oric, but lately I am finding the OSDK C compiler mixed with Assembly to be a bit more appealing. Old and grump factor, I supp...

Wicked idea. Maybe even a SpectreVR, also!

Re: The ZX-UNO project.

I have to explain that I have the -UNO in my collection, which I am curating for general exhibit, because it aligns with a greater purpose - which is to give a useful introduction to the subject of 8-bit in a way that demonstrates the whole subject, in an easy to use package. Its not for the purist ...

Re: The ZX-UNO project.

I just got a ZXUNO 2VGA, and booted up the Oric core for a bit of fun .. works pretty well, I coded up a simple synth and it sounded pretty much like a real Oric, and everything else seems to be functional, but I haven't figured out how to load anything yet, and usability wise it doesn't match a rea...

Re: Oric extender - a basis for DIY projects and experiments

I only hope this doesn't supplant the Twilighte/orix efforts. I mean, actually, maybe it will - I could see orix being put to effective use here as well: joining two Oric's together to make a multi-CPU Oric?

Re: Mamemeister Live Stream - C&VG 1985 Game Edition

I think I learned a very valuable lesson as an Oric user - its not how capable the computer is, or what the features are - its the interest of the programmer that matters in the end. Very few were interested in the Oric, because it just wasn't out there and available as much as the ZX Spectrum - whi...

Re: Mamemeister Live Stream - C&VG 1985 Game Edition

Its a nice idea, to go through the magazines of the era and play the advertised games .. definitely kicks in the nostalgia of scanning magazines for anything related to Oric, only to be disappointed at the sheer quantity of stuff the other machines had ..
