The chip is a 27128 UVPROM with a 16k memory, in this case the Erebus don't work, you must burn an other UVPROM with a ROMDIS pin compatible.
I assume that means this Oric would not work with a Microdisc, Cumulus or Cumana Reborn either, it's not a specific requirement from Erebus?

Re: Erebus does not starts

Maybe it's a problem with the MAP signal, and instead of Erebus you are actually on the real Oric rom.
What about trying to load an actual tape from the tape connector?

(Alternatively I guess we could try to PEEK in the #C000-#FFFF area to check if it's a normal or patched rom)

Re: Erebus does not starts

Did the picture actually start to flicker like that after you typed CLOAD, or is it just a camera problem?

Re: BASIC 10 Liner Competition - Oric Entry

Well done! (and yeah sorry I did not finish mine, totally missed the deadline, for some reason I thought it was in may...) On the other hand, I guess this means a lot more punters looking for Orics this week .. :/ That's ok, there are plenty of Pravetz 8D at "acceptable" prices (all things related) ...

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

You know I am not very keen on software that need expansions that did not exist back then (or worse, with technology that did not exist back then), Network access is a bliss though. No need to swap SD cards or USB drives anymore, just FTP or SMB to your retro and be done. Ideal for developing and t...

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

Is the Smart Cartridge usable with other devices, like the Speech Synthesize, RS-232 interface, Cumulus/Cumana Reborn/Microdisc?

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

Nice work :) I guess you pretty much have the base for the equivalent of the RetroReplay1541UltimateEthernet something ultimate they have on C64, with the definitive cartridge that allows: - Cartridge games - Multi-Rom with custom software - Ethernet connectivity - Cumulus and Erebus built-in :) Wha...

Looking for a disk version of Loritel

I've been trying to prepare a series of videos about "Oric and Telecoms", and that had led me to acquire some analog modems and VoIP adapters, some French Minitel terminals, some rs232<->minitel cables, got up my Telestrat up and running, etc... Thanks to the heroic efforts of a few persons we now h...

Re: Crediting people (source code fork, software archives, ...)

I see that now there are only 25 projects remaining (I guess they were deleted or marked private), which I guess is also a solution to the issue Did we lose something as a community, here? Are those projects devnull'ed? Or, is it a case that things are getting cleaned up and organised somehow? I'm ...

Re: Raycasting interactive 3D demo

I have some other project that I would like to push and I long to finish this one .. that's why I often realease too early. But that's the thing: You don't have to work on one thing at a time, rotating over multiple projects allows you to learn or discover new things, that you can then apply to the...

Re: Raycasting interactive 3D demo

Ultimately, the secret of game development is to iterate. There's a reason why now many games are released in "Early Access": The games are actually feature complete, but need the feedback from player in order to catch issues that designers and developers did not see (it's easy to get blind of how d...
