ORIC-1 vectorial cover box in PDF and new Oric web site

Post by Magoric »

Hello.

I want to present my new web page dedicated to ORIC, mainly.

My first article is dedicated to present my version of the vectorial cover box for the ORIC-1, that you can download and print:

Nice!
Please, check the colors of links - there are "red on black" (OK!) but also "dark blue on black" which are almost unreadable.

Another thing left me bit confused - although your pdf repeats exactly the original "ORIC-1" label it looks kind of strange or "taken from elsewhere". Here is what I mean see the difference between text on the box and the text from an advertising:

Again, this is only my personal impression and can be fully ignored :).

Thank you for your points.

Well, as I said in the article this is only my version, but I will take your points in mind. In the future, I pretend to make versions, and obviusly I will think in your points to modify this first version.

One more time, thank you a lot.

I like this project a lot! Being able to have a recreation (even if not exact) of the original box, would be really nice.

Many people are doing this for other computers, and it is an excellent way to keep them stored :)

Love it too!
I have somewhere a scan of the original box, only the Oric itself sadly. From memory there was no light reflection on the Oric keyboard - that's if you ever want to be closer to original of course. I can try and find the scan back if you're interested.

Thank you.

In my first intention, i tried to make a perfect recreation. Later I had differents issues (minimals) that showed i will not get a perfect copy and it frustrated me (A little bit. I'm not glass made :wink: ).

Later, I saw that it was not negative but is positive, because, under my opinion, the imperfection respect the original work of the original author (it does no matter if to the author does not matter it).

I can fix the problems of the original, and I can beutty the original (under my point of view, obviusly).

The bright in the machine was not deliberate, (the machine is a photo of my Oric-1), but I liked and I left it.

In any way, the differences are not relevants, so maybe I will spend time trying to make it closer to the original cover, or (the most probably) not. I preffer to advance In the diferent versions, and the Atmos cover.

If you have not a professional machine, don't try to print it in your home. It will not work. Just go to a copy shop with a large printer.

Maybe worth fixing the couple typos, like "cassete" instead of "cassette" and "compatable" instead of "compatible" :)

Thank you!!

I will do it. Maybe the next week.

As I see there are versións in the original case. The original box I used to make my version have "compatable". This is a common misspelling of compatible, but I leaved this, to respect the original text.

As I see Tangerine fixed the problem in follow versions of the box.

Probably leave 2 versions. With "compatable" and with "compatible".

I will alert when ready.

Ok. I've fixed the box and release it with 2 version:

- With "compatable". The original box I used, have "Compatable".
- And with "compatible".
