Re: hello all

Just checked line 40 and it seems I did add the word 'now' in error. I have typed in hundreds of games over a short period of time and despite checking every one, mistakes can slip through! I will spend the next hour checking this entire listing (nothing else to do :) ) and repost a 100% accurate ta...

Re: hello all

My version was typed in by my own hands from Oric Owner magazine, and yes I know I spelt 'Instructions' wrong :D It's now been corrected!! edit, I also still own the magazine with the listing. It looks like musepat's version was modified slightly... I will get the magazine now and recheck my version.

Re: hello all

Hi, I typed this game in for my Gamebase a while ago and it works just fine, no need to go typing it in again!

I have attached the file to this post.

Re: Old tapes found

Wow musepat, that's an amazing collection of TAPS, many I have never seen before. Would you object if I added the new games to my Oric Gamebase? I've not worked on it for a while but am beginning to feel motivated again. :D Of course you can, you must :D I'm fully motivated again! I've added about ...

Re: Oricium feedback and review thread

It's an accolade usually given to any game with a 90% rating or above and originates from the old Commodore 64 magazine Zzap!64.

Re: New (corrected) version of tap2cd

Okay, another try. I got a version of tap2wav from august 2007 (I think with some modifications from Symoon?) and I recompiled it. It seems to work on my 64bit machine, so... tap2wav2.zip Anyway I mentioned the idea about mess, because it seems to produce a good wave from the tap file (so basically...

Re: Tap2Wav bug

Basically I am trying to restore some of my old games where the tape has degraded preventing the games from loading. The idea is to convert good...

Re: Tap2Wav bug

Hi Waskol, Is it possible for you to upload this file again? I am trying to convert several TAP files to WAV but very few of them will load when I connect my Oric to the PC. The games with loading screens show a few graphical errors and the majority simply don't run after the WAV file has ended. The...
