In this forum you can write about anything that does not fit in other forums.
This includes generic Oric talkings and things that are totaly unrelated but want to share with people here :)

If you're talking of the interface, yes I do have this one ;)
I wondered how it worked, but thanks to Steve we got some instructions!

It looks ok, but it's quite crap :)

I like a joystick with a trigger fire button. The Oric one doesn't have that. It isn't a great shape so doesn't feel very positive in the hand. Many better joysticks about.
Nice to have - not so nice to use. I have a couple of them.

I use a Quickshot II which is near enough Atmos coloured.

I think the interface is a Downsway.
I got a boxed one a little while back. These are fairly rare but similar to the Protek.
