Re: Parallel port MIDI interface

@Dbug posted on Twitter some pics with the box internals. The EPIC chip is actually simple UART 15C550 serial chip. Probably both '373 latches are used to simulate a processor bus (i.e. first is latched the register address and after this data bits are latched or directly passed through '244). To be...

Re: Lode Runner for Oric by [raxiss]

Some update! The startup menu/setup is mostly done! setup.png https://youtu.be/1DlwTHAoIm0 It took longer time than foreseen but (IMHO) it's worth :). Programmed in 90% assembler it includes: - Fast blit of pre-rendered TrueType fonts with 1 pixel horizontal resolution; - Fast animations player; - R...

Re: Missing games from Oric.Org

And the yummy at orig....

... any other ideas ?
What about Google Drive to upload WAV files?
Then I can help to convert all WAV's to TAPs.

Else, thanks for all your work, @coolman66!

Re: ROM RAM Extentions

Hallo, @ ralle ! Welcome here at DF-forum. This is the simplest example how to connect external ROM to Oric - you need only 1/2 of a 7400: (It's part of the @mikeb's Oric Diag Board and I used it to quickly strip it to what you need. The same 'solution' is present in many other extensions.) rom.jpg ...

Re: Missing games from Oric.Org

Can the 4 'Images' TAP files be combined into one file for uploading to Oric.org? Yes, and it's easy to DIY: for any Windows (DOS) in command prompt type: C:> copy /b file0.tap + file1.tap + file2.tap newfile.tap for Linux in console type: $ cat file0.tap file1.tap file2.tap > newfile.tap Attached ...

but my question was mostly:...
The used joystick in MP should be PASE like, but it's not compatible with the Oricutrons' implementation.
Probably there can be problem in both (MP and Oricutron). I'll check tonight more deeply.

Re: Missing games from Oric.Org

@coolman66 : Thanks! The game is kind of pacman clone and is nice. It has own entry at oric.org , just needs to be updated :). Very interesting is how it's made - the second part starts with basic code which is loaded at not standard address by the first part... :wink: Also it can be played with jo...
