Re: SEDORIC extended BASIC commands syntax samples/manual?

Update: decided that I will not use disk saves for the windows after all. They were fast enough in Oricutron, but a tad too slow for my taste on my real Atmos with the Cumana Reborn. And more importantly, have added background music and found out that disk operations pause the music. As I use the wi...

I could implement IJK as well, as long as I have the Oric side assembly code to know how I should present data.
Maybe iss as topic starter of the two forumtopics I linked to above could help you with that?

Re: 8bit-Unity version 0.3.5

Great. On the joystick interface: is there a reason you have chosen a PASE interface over an IJK interface? By no means into the technical details of both myself, but noted that the other new joystick solution that is in development goes the IJK route: https://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopic.php?f...

Re: 8bit-Unity version 0.3.5

Looks great!
Question on the 8 bit hub though: is the joystick and network connectivity and SD card also usable without the SDK?
For example in own BASIC? And are the joysticks usable in existing games?

Re: SEDORIC extended BASIC commands syntax samples/manual?

I don't think the pawns are too fat. Might be that I compare to the original too much ;-) But of course 80 times 8 pixels screenwidth is something completely different than 40 times 6.... Begin to remember why I loved C128 80 column mode so much. On the menus: have some ideas that should work. On t...

Re: SEDORIC extended BASIC commands syntax samples/manual?

Last picture is from a real Oric on a real CRT. Not that unhappy with the circles actually.
And I do not use the CIRCLE command (too slow) but alternate char set graphics. All in TEXT mode.

Re: SEDORIC extended BASIC commands syntax samples/manual?

Update: Made progress on the screen design. At least the BASIC game I can now fit using the intended colors with all attribute spaces needed. I now use both standard and alternate charset, so next challenge will be to see if I can place pop-up windows on top without destroying graphics underneath. B...

Re: SEDORIC extended BASIC commands syntax samples/manual?

Also found this other gem from Twilighte on this forum: https://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=533 Works fine. Will use that one to design my main screen map. That already spares plotting headaches on that one. And will be memory effective as in the BASIC listing of course just loading...

Re: SEDORIC extended BASIC commands syntax samples/manual?

Thanks @ibisum ! While not an answer on SEDORIC syntax you actually helped me a lot! Forgot all that complicated attributes stuff, especially the part that attributes actually take space on the screen. Yikes! Now I understand why my pop-ups kept misaligning by oe space or two, that is the attribute ...

SEDORIC extended BASIC commands syntax samples/manual?

TLDR: Can somebody point me to syntax samples and code examples of the extended BASIC commands provided by SEDORIC? I did find these resources: http://oric.free.fr/DISKS/sedoric.html This gives a nice English SEDORIC manual. Alas it is very sparse in syntax samples of the added BASIC commands. http...

Re: Hello from UK!

I think most people would be interested in this rather than having to replace their Oric ROM with a custom EPROM Was exactly my first thought (but did not want to be that party pooper ;-) ): very nice, but how will I get that ROM on my original Oric hardware as I am definately not going to solder a...

Re: Cumana Reborn DSK support

Thanks for the tests ! I have fixed the library : Thanks! The quick service is appreciated! The Space 1999 disk image now works converting back, however my own workdisk somehow still does not work. See this on my Oric Atmos original hardware where three files are listed to be present on the image: ...

Re: Hello from UK!

Nice! Might be easier for me to create new stuff in and especially to convert my old BASIC stuff to than learning myself C or assembly, so would be great to add speed to my humble coding skills. Always was envious of BBC Basic back in my youth by the way. But obtaining an actual BBC was not a logica...
