Re: My new Cumana drive ;)

The glitches are to be expected, that was the first version of the loading routines, and during loading the music does not play as fast. It does not happen (that much) with Cumulus or emulators because they don't really emulate the real timings. Sorry for that! As long as there is no problem with t...

Re: My new Cumana drive ;)

Has anyone tried the "Pushing the envelope" demo?

When it loads from disk the sound glitches out.

This does not happen with a Cumulus.

I tried both an Oric 1 and an Atmos.

Re: Replic'Oric

I'd definitely be interested in one pcb (probably more, depending on the price).

As for a complete replica, perhaps (if the price was right).

How about a kit?

Re: Cumulus Preorder Thread

Well I've tested a few other dsk images made with tap2dsk recently and they all work fine. I opened the ultima disk image with oric disk manager and it appears empty! So I tried to remake the dsk image from the ultima tap file and tap2dsk chokes. God knows what version I used way back when I origina...

Re: Cumulus Preorder Thread

I've tested the first Cumulus. It's worked flawlessly with two Oric-1 (no serial numbers, one is grey label and the other is color) and two Atmos (s/n 223278 and 280530). I've used a Kingston 4GB SDHC class 4 card and a Minwa MW3R15GS power supply, rated 1500mA. I am using a SCART RGB powered cable ...

Re: Cumulus Preorder Thread

I've just received mine.

Unfortunately I'm flat broke so testing (ie, buying a PSU) will have to wait until the next paycheck! :(

Re: pravetz and sxc floppy emulator.

If I am not mistaken, Pravetz already has a disk controller, however that's Apple ][ compatible controller. So, is it possible to use hxc floppy emulator with Pravetz without having extra disk controller? Or something like this board is necessary? The HxC floppy emulator is not Apple compatible, so...

Do you know of one such suitable power supply that is available for purchase?
