Re: Oric HFE file

I was trying to ask someone about the Hxc software and they were unwilling to offer any help claiming the software was only for converting to Hfe . It obviously does more than that. This sort of 'help' puts me off buying any HxC device.

Oricutron - windows issue?

I have a dsk image that won't boot. It was sent from a friends Mac and it works on his system. Is the Windows version somehow more sensitive when loading Dsk images or is there somethnig wrong?

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

Tried again today and got it to work OK. Not sure why it was being difficult before.

Re: Krillys - real hardware and tape!

Once you have Tap files you can use an Erebus on the real Oric and load almost as quick as disk.

Re: The BIKE Atmos system.

That arrived fast.
I thought you had a Microdisc?!
Oh well - better late than never.

I'm not sure what you mean about copying with SED. The way I used to do it was to copy 3" disks to 3.5" and then use READDSK on a WIN98 PC to produce a .Dsk image.

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

I had to uninstall and reinstall. The CTRL works now. ESC works in part. Some ESC codes were working. Others didn't seem to. I couldn't get ESC A to produce red.

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

Thanks. I will have a look later. (It's on my other computer.) I think I can do a manual update if it hasn't done it automatically.

Re: Krillys - real hardware and tape!

I guess it didn't sell that well as there were a lot of cassette inlays left over. This is one of the reasons it was chosen as a freebie with Sedoric. Those that registered got the Sedoric manual and Krillys inlay. Tapes are so slow after using disks. I only use them when I don't have the game on di...

Re: Hardware boxes scans

The boxes are a bit big for scanners. Some nice photos would be easier.

I can't find any version mentioned. I'm pretty new to Linux. I'm trying to find where Clk Signal is installed but it's pretty hidden.

Re: Cumana Reborn DSK support

Hmm, I'm a bit baffled then. The real Cumana will work with most things - even Orics that struggle to boot on their own. I think they use more powerful power supplies but they power the Oric as well.
Over to Piotr.

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

I'm on Peppermint Linux. I'll need to boot it up to find the version, but it was a recent install.
