Re: Cumana Reborn DSK support

After several common Piotr emails and testing the potentiometer (the one in the attached photo), in the end I have sent him La Cumana Reborn and he will fix it himself. I did not even know there was some adjustable resistors in the device, did he suggest to try changing the position to see if that ...

Re: Oric V23 Modem

Anyway, to be back to the minitel, your original message, funny or not, was totally out of place because the whole point of what we are doing on Defence Force, is to have fun with old technology, and my own work, with Oriclopedia, etc... is to document and show how these things worked, and the mini...

Re: Oric V23 Modem

Moi ma queston était plutôt du genre : "Es-tu déjà parvenu à envoyer des données par un lien série depuis un PC vers l'Oric?" And as I already told you yesterday on IRC, I have to find my null modem cable. En tout cas c'est balaise d'essayer de raviver cette technologie à travers un cas d'usage qui...

Re: Oric V23 Modem

Did you try this configuration ? NoMoreMinitel.jpg Other than the fact you consider that the high point of French network technology from the 80ies is worth putting in the trashcan, which I consider totally not funny despite the effort spent doing the drawing, I think you also missed the fact that ...

Re: Web browsing on the Oric?

I remember that in the 90's, I started browsing the web with my amiga 1200. The only web browser that I managed to get working was Lynx . It is a very light weighted web browser but it is still very heavy for an Atmos. Sure, but if you pass through a proxy that does transform the input content, you...

Re: Oric V23 Modem

Since yesterday I'm reading lot of info (in French :shock: ) trying to understand two things: what's actually the Minitel-terminal and what's the point to connect it to Oric :). That's a fair question. It all started on the fact that most people outside France has never seen the Minitel and what it...

Re: Space Cowboy - Demo [raxiss]

Yeah, TEXT vs HIRES is always the same trade-of, kind of hard to have a slow-smooth scroller with a lot of sprites, in TEXT mode. One idea I had, was to try to do an hybrid mode, with odd lines in HIRES and even lines in TEXT, using the TEXT characters to draw the background, and drawing the sprites...

Web browsing on the Oric?

Some time ago, some people where trying to port Contiki on the Oric, and I seem to remember the main issue was the lack of standard I/O in the C libraries. Since then, there's been the 8bit hub, that has internet/wifi access, so I wonder how doable it would be to get this "filtered web" to run on th...

Re: Unphasing harmonics to rebalance sound samples

What I find funny, is that you started with a square wave, which is exactly what the YM/AY is doing by default: The best way to regenerate a square wave is to actually not play it as a sample at all :D

Re: Oric V23 Modem

You can start shorting only TX and RX to see if the typed characters will be echoed back, if not then do other connections. (...) OTRM is hard coded for 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, DTR=0, RTS=1 So, my "new" terminal, the Magis Club, does has a 9600 bauds, 8 data bits mode, and I ...

Re: Request for Help (Pixel-Level Retouching)

Well, it does not look like there is going to be any quick and easy solution... so I am gonna release in current state. Let's hope I will get enough spare time in coming year to make a start at implementing this integrated IDE... The only easy and quick solution would be to have a version of the du...

Re: SampleTweaker

The digiplayer is not a part of the OSDK, thus the tools is not officially part of it either. The easiest way to do the wav to raw is to use something like SoX (http://sox.sourceforge.net) Digiplayer.s is pretty much different in all the versions of my demos, some replay in 8bit using conversion tab...

Re: SampleTweaker

It's mostly that it's a tool that's pretty much unusable by itself, each time I used it I modified it to test new stuff, it only load raw files (so can't load wav, etc...), I would not recommend using it as is.

Re: 2 eurocents question about AY-8912 possibilities

Well, the problem with the nop method of synchronisation is basically you can only do things like my "Welcome", which does some sound but you can't do anything else during that time (or the only you can do is to run something that takes a fixed amount of time). What you want is something that ideall...
