Re: Master Paint and Joystick

I will try and have a look. I have it on disk somewhere, and I think I have a tape.
I think Loriciels used the French joystick interface - but I'm not certain.

Re: Missing games from Oric.Org

Fisher Sam doesn't work quite right because of the French character set on Sedoric.
I've corrected the bootup so that the fishing line appears as it should.

Sedoric1.key was added to the disk (I always prefer to use that), but in the end it wasn't required.

Fisher Sam, no knowledge of this whatsoever but it works.
It's a type-in - I believe from Games Computing published by Argus. It may also appear in another Argus magazine such as Personal Computing Today(?)

The only way I know with my limited Oric knowledge is to interrupt the auto-run with POKE #500,1 before loading.
There was an Autorun Inhibit program printed in Your Computer, (I think), which is on Rhetoric disk 5. (On Oric,org)
You can List it after loading from the Menu.

Oricutron video rendering

I've moved on to a new computer with Win 10. When I boot Oricutron it boots with openGL rendering which appears more blurry than software rendering. So I switch over - but each time I boot up it has gone back to open GL and I can't see a way to make it stay in software rendering. I think it used to ...

Re: Oric tapes not in TOSEC

Thanks - I don't think I did that. I found it a bit confusing.
I don't think I have the full thing any more. I just saved the files. Is it available for download now?

Re: Adventure Games and Solutions, Help needed !

I think Fishy Business existed on the Oric. According to one website it is very rare and there may have been only 100 produced for the Oric. I believe I saw it on Ebay once, but my memory is not 100% !!! Some of the software mentioned will be from my list where I went through all the Oric magazines ...

Re: Adventure Games and Solutions, Help needed !

The Hulk and Spiderman are Scott Adams adventures that were never released for Oric. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Questprobe I seem to have a copy of The Hulk disk, but not the Spiderman one. There's also something called Lurking Horror, (?) and some others which I think are from Infocom(?) I've ha...
