Re: Connectivity problems (again)

Hi,

Sorry about that, but reporting a few slowdowns in the past few days, and 5 or 6 timeouts today, especially when posting.

Re: The QUILL

Well I guess a simple recording of a 11kHz signal made with TAP2WAV should do the job.

Re: The QUILL

The Quill loading checksum code goes reading the tape header in RAM (in $005D for ROM 1.0 or $02A7 for ROM 1.1, Erebus being using ROM 1.1). In this header, it reads start and end addresses of the loaded file. Then it loops reading all loaded bytes, adding each and every byte to the previous loop re...

Did you try with Erebus?
Will do, don't hesitate sending a reminder (short evenings, quite tired, main internet connexion out of order, ... Life!)

Re: Oriclopedia: A series of videos on all things Oric

Now I'm going to bother you with scans/overview pics/WAV file of Canada ;) Before doing that, you should check oric.org :p Ha ha, that's cool, thanks ;) Are both tape sides the same? :p BTW the game is there, strangely as a DSK file. So if you ever make a WAV and want a TAP out of it, you know wher...

Re: Oriclopedia: A series of videos on all things Oric

I think several tape games were converted to Sedoric/Stratsed by Oric International. For instance Damien, that just posted about Oric Explorer, converted Lorigraph for them. Couldn't give you more titles, but take a look at the Theoric magazine which has the complete Oric catalogue (one with a green...

Re: Meurtre à grande vitesse, why there is not a TAP file?

Mike is right! As usual ;) How do emulators (at least Euphoric) do to load a file on hard drive when you actually tell the Oric to load on TAPE ? Well, they check the ROM calls for tape reading and catch them to replace them by hard-drive TAP reading. But when a program (like MGV) uses its own tape ...

Re: Telestrat failure?

Well, I've tested all my cartidges. - Hyper-Basic: 3 OK, 2 failed (one being currently being revived by NightBird) - Tele-Ass: 1 OK - Stratoric: 1 OK - Telematic: 3 failed, 2 apparently OK but not sure they do anything: with or without it, I still see "ROM 32Ko" instead of "ROM 40Ko" as displayed in...

Re: Tendre Poulet - used AIC?

At a small scale, Xenon-1 did too: look at the meteors.
Or the lava in the spider level, in Zorgons Revenge.

Re: eBay game prices

Lots of rare tapes were sold recently on Ebay: Bombyx, Canada, Memoric, Star Wars, Ajerdrez, ...
Hoping it's in a safe home and we can transfer / scan them some day ;)
