Le Diamant de l'Ile Maudite

Hey,

Among the "funny little details", anyone ever spotted this on early versions of Le Diamant de l'Ile Maudite?
watch carefully the title on tape labels ;)

Re: Hardware boxes scans

I will try and scan some, but no deadline promises.
And I don't think I have a clean Oric-1 box - too bad I cut mine into pieces in the 80s :'(

OricHir allows quick drawing, that's cool!

Hardware boxes scans

I was wondering, are there high resolution (let's say 300DPI at least) scans of original hardware boxes somewhere?
Especially Oric-1, Atmos? (and Telestrat, and Microdisc, printers, Jasmin drives, etc. etc.)

Re: Krillys - real hardware and tape!

Funny, you're using an Oric-1 and the final Hires screen isn't affected by the CLOAD statut line (clearly visible on the 1st fully red hires screen).
So Orpheus are using their own loading routines ;) Probably the short program loaded right before the HIRES screen.

And also I'm still looking for someone to help with the english traduction of the game (which english name is going to be Oric 3D aMaze).

If someone feels like translating ...
If there's no hurry and not too much text, I can give it a try

Re: ORICART - smart cartridge for Oric by [raxiss]

This looks cool, how do you guys manage to handle so many projects, it's amazing - as a simple user I don't manage to follow anymore ;) You're talking about LZ compression, it the decompressing handled by the Oric, or by the card? (if made by the Oric, I'd be interested to try it to minimize tape lo...

Re: ORIC SDCARD

By loading the header, are we also talking of the 16 16 16 16 ... 24 synchro sequence? Or just the addresses, type/auto exec bytes, and possibly the filename? Option 2! The header starts after $24, the $16 / $24 sequence is never stored in RAM during the loading process. BTW, I realize the whole se...
