Re: Oric-1 display problems

Any time I see these kinds of issues with an Oric, the first thing I do is find a reliable power supply - 1.2A at least. Check yours, it may be weaker than you think.

Re: Little sound fx generator

Its cool! Are you going to add a "scan ROM for synth values" feature, like Twilighte added to his all those years ago? That was fun, stepping through the ROM binary, using it to seed the synth chip with values ..

Re: The BIKE Atmos system.

iss, I plan on keeping this one as close to 'original owner condition' as possible, because after all I already have a few mint-condition/boxed Atmos' in my collection and my personal-use Atmos is perfect. Very tempted to add the Microdrive to my daily-use machine, but .. Cumulus just feels better a...

Re: The BIKE Atmos system.

I'm really curious why this sticker was necessary .. guess I'll keep it in mind as I explore the stack of discs this week .. once I get a chance to set the system up and boot it. Perhaps this reference served the developer well while they were building their custom BIKE software, somehow, lets find ...

DBug, et al., I took some closeups of the user cheat sheet as requested .. seems it contained some important power user tips, which I'm not quite sure I understand but I'm sure you guys will decipher:

Re: The BIKE Atmos system.

I'll take some more pictures this weekend - stay tuned. Steve M, I've got Cumana, Cumulus, and the 3.5" drive that came with my Telestrat .. but no official Microdrive until now. I plan on keeping the whole system together as a working example of a truly commercial application of the Oric, but I'll ...

The BIKE Atmos system.

Hi Oricians, Recently, I learned about a great Oric Atmos system that was being sold by its original owner, and which I have now added to my Oric collection - its not my first Atmos, but it is my first Microdrive, squeal!(*). When I learned about this system and its history .. I knew I had to make a...

Re: Web browsing on the Oric?

I got Contiki booted on a real Atmos once, but got stymied by the lack of serial support .. however with the 8bit-unity hub and other efforts ongoing, it seems feasible to me that we could - at least - get serial I/o working on a build. Trouble is, ContikiOS was once an old and dusty thing, then got...

EDIT: or, indeed, if there even is any real software floating around for 65816-upgraded Orics, let me know and I'll get that second part started.

Orix? https://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopic.php?t=2149

Would be neat to have Twilighte/Orix in emulation.......

Re: Los Caminos de Galdeon

Congrats on an excellent game for the Oric! Its a real treat .. albeit maybe a bit too easy. Looking forward to the next iteration of things, and maybe what else might this engine inspire ..

Re: Request for Help (Pixel-Level Retouching)

Hang on 8bit-Dude, we might still have something to do here - Chema's OASIS editor for Blakes 7 would be a pretty good place to start on a graphics system for Oric .. maybe we just need to give the guru's a couple days to think it over and digest the requirements a bit more, and we might find oursel...
