Re: Source code repository discussion

How about type in listings available on request vial snail mail :evil: Just like trhw good ole days. For that true (and very frustrating) retro experience :) On a serious point, for me, whatever allows me to see the source code (maybe without actually downloading it) works best. I'm kind of a "how d...

Re: Artist Oric

So cool and explanatory :) Thank you for your efforts :) You really did it :) Thankyou, I enjoyed the challenge. :D My attempt isnt quite correct, but does produce interesting patterns. The benefit of being able to overclock the emulator is huge as I wouldnt want to run the basic program on real ha...

Re: Artist Oric

Here is the next version. Plotting 2 different frequencies of simple harmonic motion. One on x-axis, one on y-axis. The 2 acceleration variables are input on running GX and GY. Not quite what the OP was looking for but I think I got fairly close (ish). :D It's very slow so I would recomend at least ...

Re: Artist Oric

I saw this and thought what an interesting challenge. I started out by making a pendulum swing on a string which is the code below. I would advise running this at at least 8X acceleration in oricutron, although with the 2 draw commands and the wait removed it is not that bad on 1Mhz. 10 HIRES 20 GR=...

Re: Oric and Intersil ICM7170 RTC ?

Just a question, suppose I manage to connect the I2C RTC internally, wouldn't be there some issues with the printer port if I connect a printer or a joystick adapter to it ? Yes that is true unfortunately. The I2C module would be ok as that would wait for specific addressing, but not sure how other...

Re: Oric and Intersil ICM7170 RTC ?

Yeah, so I guess the only way to fit a RTC internally is by using the DS1216E... Not quite. I have managed to connect an a I2C RTC module via the printer port to the oric. Topic is here : http://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2054 I dont think it would be hard to mount the moudule inte...

Re: Zorgons Revenge - My Attempt To Play - Video

I did enjoy watching the video, in fact I watched another 2 right after. That one was where you compared galaxian on the 2600 to Attack of the Timelords on an Oddessy-2 (which I have no knowledge of). If you liked attack of the timelord then I would recommend "The Ultra" by PSS software for the Oric...

I mean, smaller HIRES regions could be used for icons, mixed with TEXT through the 50/60hz attributes, also, no?
Yes, anything that can be displayd on an oric can be transfered so theoretically possible.

Re: I2C for the Oric

At the moment a full page of text takes about a second to transfer and Hires about 4 seconds.

It will speed up a little once I get the timings squeezed, at the moment I'm concentrating on accuracy, but I doubt hires streaming would be possible other than as a picture viewer.

I have the 2 way comms working over wifi between the Oric and my PC running Mystic BBS locally. Still lots of bugs, and the Oric display gets corrupted easil...

Re: I2C for the Oric

Minor update to I2CCload.tap and source. Fixed the loading of basic programs over wifi. The load routine now sets the variables and arrays pointers at $9c/d and $9e/f to be after the and of the basic program. Without this the basic starts at $501 and the variables at $503 which means on first run th...

Pretty soon I'm going to give this a try - but I'll use the PlatformIO IDE. Heard of it yet?
No, I hadnt heard of it, but looks interesting.

Will certainly give it a try.
