Re: Pictoric (was: New conversion algorithm)

Re: Sea battle

Awesome game, thanks so much for sharing it! As an avid Oric fan, I simply can't believe we're still getting such great things released for the machine, and your use of AIC really puts the Oric in new light.

Re: Pulsoids

If I remember correctly, this was the reason he hadn't released a TAP file yet:

>- the game does not run on Oric-1 (Oric.org corrected)

Status of OricExos?

Hey, I unpacked my OricExos last night and was wondering about the status of the project .. I should probably set it up and get it running. *iss*: Have their been many hardware tweaks since you sent me my boards?
