Re: Complete list of Oric Atmos adreeses

Attached you can find Atmos ROM 1.1B disassembly in PDF. This is the best copy I have - it's nicely colored. This is the one I also have, but I have it without the nice coloring :) I include the table I mentioned earlier. I don't know where I got it from. Maybe from an old PDF and converted it to w...

Re: Complete list of Oric Atmos adreeses

What I have here are two documents in English. One is a table with entry points to the main ROM routines both in 1.0 and 1.1. Just the addresses and routine names. Then I have a 132-page pdf called "Oric Atmos ROM v1.1. disassembly" which includes comments on the ROM (from C000 to FFFF), a table of ...

Re: Source code repository discussion

Hello all! I've not entered in this discussion yet, mostly because it's been a looooong time since I last really worked in software development (mid-size projects inside a team, that is), and at that time repositories were not the standard in use (mostly shared directories and zips with dates and in...

Re: Is BD-DOS lost to time?

You can check your configuration using DSYS. Drives are usually 42 track or 82 track - single or double sided. It can be set with DTRACK. Drives will work to some extent but if you want o format a disk it helps to have the system set up right. I've found my way over to the Greasweazle Facebook page...

Re: Is BD-DOS lost to time?

I have a Microdisc clone with two 3.5 drives. Sedoric works with no need of any configuration. I've also seen it work with one 3.5 and one 5.25 drives. Plug and play. I am sure cumana will work that way too. If I remember correctly it was Oric DOS that need some kind of config? Also, hfe is a bit st...

Re: Need help fixing Oric 1

Just as a side note in case it helps, there is a pdf with a guide to use Mike's Rom in his site (see the documentation link at http://oric.signal11.org.uk/html/diagrom.htm)

Re: Need help fixing Oric 1

Nice catch! One question. Couldn't the conversion device be configured to accept the 50Hz RGB signal? Patching the ROM has some inconveniences. If you use an Eprom you need another hack to be able to have external see devices which want to disable the internal ROM. That means disc controllers and pr...

Re: Is BD-DOS lost to time?

I've got BD drives and Microdisc drives. I've got Cumana with 3.5" drives. I don't have a Gotek yet. I've been holding off from getting a Gotek as there is the issue with files being converted to it's format. I'm not aware of anything that can get the files back to Oric .dsk files (?) Yep. That is ...

Re: IJK-egoist new joystick interface by [raxiss]

Thank you so much! Glad to see it is detected and handled automatically :D And, yes, I remember you always thought it was reversed... I understand that when you push the stick forward, you want the cursor to go down and it goes up instead? Or was it the other way round? In any case, using a joystick...

Re: CEO Summer Meeting in June

It was great to finally put some real faces to the names I am used to read regarding the Oric world! And thanks to Dbug, who kindly translated everything for me (the only one who could not speak French). Also big thanks to jbPerin and the rest who kindly spoke in English for me :) Thanks to all, it ...

Re: Need help fixing Oric 1

Not a hardware guy, either, so better wait for someone more experienced to answer, but I'd say that if the Oric boots and works fine for 5 seconds(every time), then the screen goes black but it still produce keyclicks and sounds, I'll bet for a problem or incompatibility with the converter module (R...

The connector of the Sega joypad is hard to connect, I think the HE10 connector of the printer port will have to be connected last and then disconnected first.
Ok. Noted.

Iss did you have an opportunity to check if my joystick code in Blake's7 works?

Re: Changed of hosting strategy

Tortoise, the shell extension I used with SVN, has a git version... just for the record (I always struggled to use it too, anyway).
