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...

Re: Request for Help (Pixel-Level Retouching)

Hey Chema - Is this not a job for the charmap/image editor that you wrote for Blakes 7? Not that its for me to say, but it sure seems like that would be highly useful in the context of 8-bit Unity ..

Re: BASIC 10 Liner Competition - Oric Entry

Please share more 10-liners .. one thing I keep thinking when I look at these, is that they pack a lot of punch for 10 lines of code, but don't necessarily need to be 10 lines .. and can therefore probably pack a whole lot *more* punch ..

Re: BASIC 10 Liner Competition - Oric Entry

I should get a Pravetz 8D.

Its the only bit left in the Oric suite that I don't have.

Re: BASIC 10 Liner Competition - Oric Entry

Wow, congratulations rax! You are a true Oric hero.

On the other hand, I guess this means a lot more punters looking for Orics this week .. :/

Re: Rodman on Itch.io

BTW I totally agree with Ibisum: a small delay with the keyboard response, but apparently a very good game anyway :) I might be off-base, and I rely on the pros' to remind me, but could this scan delay be because its slightly mis-using ROM routines, like, parsing for a char rather than XOR the keyb...

Re: Rodman on Itch.io

It’s not often we get a new game that was released commercially these days sadly, but I was pleased that Misfit put the Oric version on itch.io No question about it, this was an instant buy for me. I definitely buy Oric software. Like, duh, wtf!! Hell yes!! All Oric devs should get paid! And by the...

Re: Rodman on Itch.io

Definitely a fun game which feels quite polished on Oric .. I prefer the Amstrad version though, its somehow a bit more responsive ..
