Re: CEO Summer Meeting in June

It was great to finally put some real faces to the names I am used to read regarding the Oric world! And thanks to Dbug, who kindly translated everything for me (the only one who could not speak French). Also big thanks to jbPerin and the rest who kindly spoke in English for me :) Thanks to all, it ...

Re: Need help fixing Oric 1

Not a hardware guy, either, so better wait for someone more experienced to answer, but I'd say that if the Oric boots and works fine for 5 seconds(every time), then the screen goes black but it still produce keyclicks and sounds, I'll bet for a problem or incompatibility with the converter module (R...

The connector of the Sega joypad is hard to connect, I think the HE10 connector of the printer port will have to be connected last and then disconnected first.
Ok. Noted.

Iss did you have an opportunity to check if my joystick code in Blake's7 works?

Re: Changed of hosting strategy

Tortoise, the shell extension I used with SVN, has a git version... just for the record (I always struggled to use it too, anyway).

Re: IJK-egoist new joystick interface by [raxiss]

I love the design and how it fits on the back of the Oric. What worries me most is the mechanical stress on the connector... something to worry about?

Re: New Spanish text adventure!!!!

They created other adventure games for C64. This time they decided to go multiplatform by using The Quill and DAAD.

I worked with Professional Adventure Writer System on the speccy in the past, but never used The Quill... are there other alternatives on the Oric?

Re: Monitor or TV?

Same here. Those were really inexpensive at that time, and they offer a very good pic quality. Obviously flat TVs are less cumbersome and use less space, but I've heard that they are not too good for gaming, as they do not blend colours son nicely. I never tried, though, but I have one which has SCA...

Re: 3D Fongus with Erebus : does not load

:)

Maybe it is a good idea to setup a pinned thread with patched games for dsk or erebus... We could keep the first post updated with the images and people could ask for versions there...

Re: New Spanish text adventure!!!!

What a nice surprise today! Bieno Martí, author of Torreoscura, gently sent me some physical copies of his game for the Oric. I must say they (the group is named CommodorePlus) have done a really neat job!

Thank you so much!

Re: Character Set Editor and Generator

Please may I ask you to explain a bit further this idea ? How is that possible to use a green color in a character ? How do you deal with transparency ? is it based on ORing pixels of the front character with the background character ? Sure. It is quite easy. For each sprite you need the graphic an...
