Re: Cumulus Issues

Metadata it's not your fault. Me and my friend Ivan (iss) have realised that the screen connector is unsoldered. Then we tried to boot "in blind" and voila - the image booted. Then Ivan said: "Let's see if it works on Pravetz 8D." I have turned the buffer board (you know Pravetz 8D motherboard is fa...

Re: Cumulus Issues

Hello,
I'm unhappy to say that my Cumulus had stop working. It was used only 2-3 times for about 4-5 minutes since buying it, but now when I tried to start and it is absolutely dead.
Is there any support for these devices?

Re: Another Microdisc compatible.

If it's just copied the Microdisc schematics it's normal to press Reset button to wake the system. There's a little mistake on it. Even the original Microdisc don't reset the system without pressing the Reset button. Must change the resistor and the cpacitor of the reset part of the controller. Then...

Re: Oric SD Drive videos

Yes, they are compatible. But Pravetz 8D has it's own software not known in the Oric world. Some of it work under Dos 8D only, some not. I have wonderful games only for Pravetz 8D. Some on English, some in Bulgarian. I must translate the most interesting. Most of the Oric multifile games are transfo...

Re: Oric SD Drive videos

Oric SD drive is completely different than Cumulus. It's a whole new world of Oric software under Dos 8D.

Re: Oric SD Drive videos

The PSU is usual PC PSU. The green card is RGB to VGA converter and I power it from the same PSU. The cost is 90 euros including SD card with Bulgarian software - disc copy and edit and some interesting games. The RGB to VGA converter is not included. The device could use real 5.25" Disc II as slave...

Re: Microdisc competitor - jORIC communicator

No, sorry. I could ask Plamen for the manual, because I have lost it. The emulator could store up to 16 images, separated in folders from 0 to 15. You just put the image in the folder and with button choose which folder you will use. If some is empty the counter will skip it. I love this emulator, b...
