Re: Oric on VGA monitors

Thanks for the follow-up guys.

My monitor is a DELL P2214H.
Works great with Atari STs, and with some (not all apparently) DB23 => VGA converters for Amiga (one of the two I got sends the monitor to sleep mode, haven't had time to search if it is a known issue).

Just found this:
Sounds interesting, thanks for the link!
I'm curious to hear about the result ;)
That's especially interesting if it works and if the Oric-powered scart can avoid another power supply.

Re: Oric on VGA monitors

No direct wiring but since the Atari ST adapter already does the job, I wondered if it couldn't be used for the oric too.
Not sure how it's done exactly, that would help trying to figure if the pins used on the ST are equivalent to the ones the Oric has.

Re: OPEL Software for the Oric

Off-topic tape names: Yes, I'm transferring the actual tapes in the best possible way, which means keeping the original "loading name" (that's the way I call it). It can be essential as sometimes programs load a second part with instructions like CLOAD"JOYSTICK CONTROL", so if you don't keep that ac...

Re: Oric on VGA monitors

Hi all, I recently bought a second hand 15kHz PC monitor, on which I was able to plug my Atari ST in low resolutions (color!) thanks to the "VGA ADAPTER LOW COST VERSION £12" sold here: https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/store2/ This adapter does not convert 15 => 31 kHz, but that's no problem as the...

Hello
I've one.
I'll scan the cover & tapes to complete
I have already scanned it all, completed by Steve's scans of the docs.
Jede probably has it all.
If you have a FTP or whatever I can send them to you - I really have no time for updates these days :?

Re: CEO Meet Christmas 2020

Also Sy, it was funny to hear you tuning in. Do you have an airplane headset with a keyed mic by any chance? Sure sounded like you were in the air .. ;) Aha, is it because of the mic sound, or the on/off effect that could be a bit late when I start speaking? I do have an on/off button and use it ra...

Re: CEO Meet Christmas 2020

Actually, the on-line meetings allow more people to meet! I'd say about half of the attendees never came at a "physical meeting" in Paris - which doesn't mean they were not actors of the Oric scene of course ;)

Very impressed with the demos.

Re: IJK-egopad the joypad for Oric by [raxiss]

@Symoon: I've fixed 'The Ultra' - you can fire while moving, also I fixed the 'Hall of Fame' because it was broken ('UUUU' instead of spaces) - this bug exist in the game on oric.org which I used as basis for porting to IJK. Thanks a lot! Ah yes, the version on Oric.org seems to be yet another earl...

Great news!

Will it be possible to order the interface only at some point in the future? I already have loads of old joysticks :mrgreen:

Re: Philips D6260 K7 deck bulk repair

I remember being shocked when I read "K7" instead of "cassette" for the 1st time in the 80s. Sounded really like an ugly way to shorten the word!
Now I'm surprised finding it in English chats sometimes ;)
