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

With the Oric extender, I wonder if I could get the Cumana Reborn + RS232/Modem + Speech Synthesizer to run all together. It acts like an ampli-bus, correct? No, this extender can only help hardware developers to quickly prototype custom peripheral devices. This is exactly its purpose. It helps wit...

Re: Oricutron 1.0 (EDIT: Now 1.2)

I don't know whether you're building things automatically or manually, but I notice that the macOS build doesn't yet have native M1 (i.e. ARM) support. I have an M1 Mac, is there any assistance I can provide? SDL is now available for the M1, indeed I've already got the framework version installed a...

Re: BASIC 10 Liner Competition - Oric Entry

Nice one :) +1 from me! And thinking further about the strings - would it be possible to hack somehow the HIMEM and/or BASIC data area pointers so that the value of a string "maps" at screen memory - something like direct 'sprintf' to video memory? Of course there will be more problems to resolve i...

New version available 1.2.4-20210214.
Changes in sources are related to BD500 support.
The compiled binaries use newest stable SDL2-2.0.14.

Re: Oricutron 1.0 (EDIT: Now 1.2)

Changing render option did not do anything, but the crash happens in 'SDLAudioP1' so could it be audio related? Indeed, it's very plausible that the problem is related to audio. I'll try to trace the initialization process and see what can be wrong. Now for SDL2 I'm using ver. 2.0.8 but there is mo...

Re: Is BD-DOS lost to time?

I forgot another bit of information. Memory register 0x312 (DSTATS), when read, also indicates, in bit 0, whether the disk drive motor is on or off. If b0 is 0 then the motor is ON but if b0 is 1 then the motor is OFF. I mentioned before that it would be nice of register 0x31a could be used, in add...

Re: Is BD-DOS lost to time?

The same image can be used with Microdisk, Jasmin, BD500 and 8D-FDC (the last - 8D-FDC is not working now). That's... interesting, does that mean we could soon patch the FloppyBuilder based games and demos so they run on all of that? Unfortunately just binary patch will not work. I'm writing BOOTER...

Re: Is BD-DOS lost to time?

Oricutron sources updated. Oricutron for developers updated too. @Ray : This is great! I never expected that we will have any info about BD500. Now it's clear for me the reason for the strange handling of 56k/64k modes: when financiers and managers are stepping-in the source codes become weird :D. ...

Re: DRAMARDUINO - Dram tester with Arduino

I second @ mikeb : what's the full name of the chips? A readable picture will be best :). I can't find any info about such thing like TI 6154 ... else about the "tired" chips - this sounds like "conspiracy" :). I wonder if it's possible to emulate what memtest+ does, like trying to access the ram in...
