As anyone tried to do the same as above for one of our dear emulators ?

I’ll try but wanted to know if anyone did that already.

I haven't heard of a web oric emulator up to now.

And I must admit that this idea sounds very interesting.

Something like what they have for Dragon or Tandy computer:

Ah yes I remember this.

The port of Oricutron is starting to work :
https://torguet.net/oric/Oricutron.html

But please don't try to open the menus or you will have to restart your browser ;)

Edit : It works on my iPad as well (which was the goal ;) ) but for some reason the shift keys don't work as intended.

Yes that’s my goal.

A tap or a dsk.

Then I’ll try to provide the same but with a list of taps and dsks.

Example loading tap:

There is a problem with the dsk loading. I will look at this asap.

Great result, congrats!

Actually some time ago I gave a try of emscripten to compile Oricutron and with small hacks it worked (well, kind of).
Since then I have the idea to make an Oric IDE for browser with integrated C compiler and Oricutron, but you know the free-time problem...

Anyway, well done @Hialmar! We can merge the changes in main repo when it's ready.

EDIT: About the DSK problem - check if the Microdisc (and all other) ROM files are properly named i.e. upper/lower case.

Yes that was a part of the problem you are right.

It works now :

I had some problems with the way Oricutron autoloads dsks so I'll look at it a bit more as I have had to add some code that shouldn't be there.

I have created a branch called www on the git repository :
https://github.com/pete-gordon/oricutron/tree/www

You will find a www directory and a Readme.txt file there to build your own Orics in browsers ;)

The goal will be to integrate everything in master but as it is still bugged (can't manage to get the menu to open) I'll do it later on.

Edit : the menus are now working. Now I need to work on file selectors.
It will take some time as there are tight loops there and I cannot do that.

Your code is just fine! Don't worry about such things :).
I saw some changes in files related to Mac's XCode project files - actually nothing special, so do you mind to preserve originals when we do merge?

I was trying to have it working again with no luck so far.
I’ll try again and if it doesn’t work will revert to the old files.
