Re: Téléstrat frustration

Else, you guys really scared me - what I should expect when I power-on any of my THREE Telestrats :mrgreen: Well, if you blow them, it's your fault, because you've been informed. It's the difference between dying on a mine-field you did not know was there, versus ignoring the signs telling there's ...

Re: Téléstrat frustration

What I suggest is that you share your experience. The ROMATMOS is available as files, that's not really the problem, it's more a case of having it on an actual cartridge :) Actually what would be nice is some universal flashable cartridge where you could put what you want, but that would be quite a ...

Téléstrat frustration

Hi, I've been trying to get my Telestrat usable, but so far without much success: - I can boot "Stratsed 2.0cq" but not "Stratoric v3.0" (real floppies) - I tried a number of DSK versions using the Gotek, but most don't load - I just discovered that I have a "Stratoric 1.0" cartridge that apparently...

Re: HARD TO FIND GAMES

I think the issue is mostly that the question is hard to understand :D From what I understand, to fit your criteria it has to be - hard to find (does that mean "quite rare") - commercial - with good music or graphics the problem is: if it was hard to find, I would probably not know about it, but if ...

Re: Oricutron on Ubuntu

Since we are mentioning the SDL2 version, the reason why it does not work on my machine is because of an issue with the audio, when connected to my 5.1 sound card (Asus Xonar) it crashes when trying to do some sound conversion. And that's basically the main reason why I've not updated Oricutron in t...

Re: Oriclopedia: A series of videos on all things Oric

Took the entire day, but here is a new Oriclopedia video about the Oric Library:

Most of you probably already know the content, but did not hurt to summarize the efforts done in these few last months :)

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?

Re: Image mapping : Peer review needed

Even at the same speed, not erasing before redrawing would improve the quality perception quite a lot: Just draw each column over the current screen content, and just continue in green or blue above and below :)

Re: CC65/C: Ensure joystick press is registered only once

The IJK interface is designed to use a fancy bit of capacitor that loads during the off-time so it can do magic to enable the transistors while reading the values. It may simply be that fast looping like that just makes it not work anymore, I don't think it's supposed to be accessed more than one pe...

Re: CC65/C: Ensure joystick press is registered only once

You need to debounce: Basically, key presses, as given by the ROM are single events, even if the key stayed pressed, then it auto-repeats: This is done for you by the system. If you were reading the keyboard matrix directly, you would have the same issue as you currently have with the joystick, basi...

The TI99 also renders on only one third of the screen vertically, that helps.

Re: IOUG

Ok, I took a look at the 23 issues (1985-1986) and as far as I can see, there's not much of personal information in them, most addresses are from long gone businesses, so I guess it's safe to publish the content.
