Re: Full Telestrat in Ebay

Honestly, its such a thing of beauty to those of us who know what a Telestrat is, and as well the Microdisc, that I hope it gets put into someones hands who ends up *using* the thing and not just sitting on a shelf, appreciating value. I would dearly love to use this rig as a daily-drive Oric setup,...

Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

Its easy for me to say, since I'm just a random Internet dude, but my 2¢ is that sound effects should be integral to the game environment, itself - i.e., yes, sounds shouldn't be superfluous, but indeed part of the action .. its another layer upon which to give the player hints about what to do. So,...

Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

I will deactivate it pretty much immediately, so unless its essential to gameplay, I (disclaimer:personally) consider it superfluous, and thus: not worth the program memory/hassle?

2¢: samples!

Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

I think you should try the idea of only using a small, short sound at the beginning of each sentence, to differentiate when one character starts talking and the other starts listening. This works pretty well - especially if the tones are different. All thats needed is there to be a different tone - ...

Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

Thats going to get a bit annoying. Maybe there should just be a sound effect at the beginning of the sentence, for each character? Sort of a short, pulsed sound with different pitches for each character - only so we can tell the beginning of a new sentence, by a new character, and not necessarily he...

Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

Count me in as a vote for Telestrat support as well - as I have one. :) And I'd be willing to test it on the real hardware as well ..

Re: EDGE - a new game which needs sounds and music

This is a very nice game! Its reminiscent of marble madness, in a way .. which is to say, what about adding the element of enemies to it at some point?! (I would definitely have bought this game and put it in my favourite-tapes box when I was a kid.) I dunno about music though - wouldn't some kind o...

Re: Searching for Krystal Worlds (edited by OUM)

Wonderful! Thanks for all the hard work you guys did to make this happen .. words cannot express the joy I feel at being able to load up some new (old) software on my Oric machines to try out. Its' some sort of religious experience these days. :)
