Re: Dungeon Master on the Oric: 24 years later

There's no tabulation key on Oric :p

What about ijkl to move in the labyrinth, and esdf (saves the AZERTY/QWERTY mess for real Oric or emulators) to move a pointer, with space as action key according to the pointer place ? (press, throw, etc, like the mouse button did)?

Re: Assembly functions for Sedoric OPEN, TAKE, PUT, CLOSE

I use TAP2DSK to store all kind of files on the disk, including binary programs, music tracks, bitmaps... So they are not TAP files , but the software makes them all look like binary program AFAIK. Ah it must be a fork then; I was referring to Fabrice's TAP2DSK, see readme here (TAP2DSK = TAP to DS...

Re: Assembly functions for Sedoric OPEN, TAKE, PUT, CLOSE

https://github.com/teiram/oric-dsk-manager I already have this app. But it is not really useful for what I am trying to do (plus it is buggy). For now, I can generate files with OPEN in Oricutron, and save the Disk again. By I am having a hard time figuring out what exactly is different between tap...

Re: Assembly functions for Sedoric OPEN, TAKE, PUT, CLOSE

I suppose that I need to modify tap2dsk, so it lets me add raw data files... Any clues you may have would be most welcome! I am not sure what you are trying to do, but if you don't mind installing java, there is a took that lets you add files to a dsk with drag&drop. I am not sure if they need to b...

Re: Assembly functions for Sedoric OPEN, TAKE, PUT, CLOSE

Go for track 20 (#14) sector 4, if memory serves. That's up to Sedoric 3; beware that Sedoric 4 allows multiple catalogs to simulate folders ;)

Re: Assembly functions for Sedoric OPEN, TAKE, PUT, CLOSE

I haven't worked with Sedoric for years now, but I think flies you use with OPEN, TAKE etc. are a specific type (something like sequential recordings files, which don't exist in TAP format). You should confirm that by reading Sedoric manual, and Sedoric à Nu which are the two book you need if you wa...

Re: Pictoric (was: New conversion algorithm)

Although I'm usally not a huge fan of AIC or dithering (nice on small screen captures, sometimes painful on larger screens), I have to say all this work is really amazing. You guys are really talented in finding all the possible best combinations of colours, and doing this so fast! When I was conver...

Re: Oric and Intersil ICM7170 RTC ?

I think the Real Time Clock reference on Oric World website is the Telestrat one. Especially since Fabrice is asking Laurent's help at some point, and Laurent was a Telestrat specialist. I clearly recall l'"horloge en temps réel" (as we say RTC in French) being advertised, I suspect you'd find some ...

I second Bager: you had the good reflex reading the inlay instructions (and thanks for letting know where you got the game from, it's appreciated ;)), but there's another in-box set of instructions which will help you a LOT understanding what to do ;) About collision detection: on the dragon level, ...

Re: John Gage reviews Damsel In Distress!

Steve, I don't think you should watch any more of his videos if they wind you up so much. He never claims to be a great player - quite the opposite, in fact. Well, to be fair, if he's rating games, he should accept being juged in return ;) Found his Damsel In Distress video funny, but gave up watch...

Re: Le Palais des Glaces

If I'm not mistaken, BONJOUR.COM is the auto-start file for the Telestrat. So maybe you got a Telestrat program there?
When you load the BAS file (LOAD"GLACES.BAS") then LIST it, do you see a classic Basic listing?

Re: Sell me a data recorder! Price no object!

With XP's MS-DOS you can go into a folder with a space by typing Something like : CD "my folder with spaces" 8) With TAP2WAV, don't forget the option to add a silence at the end of the WAV file if it remains at "Loading" state once the WAV played. Some player like to play bad tricks to sound files b...
