Re: Competition CEO: New Year 2019

Same here.. I can't bring the things in my mind to the life..I am stuck with some machine code routines. There are some projects I started but none of them seems to be going to finish. I hope I would finish something worth to share but probability is still low, and time is running fast... I know th...

Re: Competition CEO: New Year 2019

Hi Peacer, Symonn & Romuald, nice to hear you're planning to contribute and nice to hear we're more or less in the same league, trying to contribute just "a little something" within the limited timeframe and bearing our various obligations and other commitments :-) Nice to hear as well that Chema wi...

Re: I want to build an soldering iron

Well Brana, I'm not very skilled in electricity or in electronics, but according to the basic Ohm law, yes, your calculations are correct for your example: Known values: P = 30 W U = 12 V Using the P = U x I equation we can then compute I = P / U = 30 / 12 = 2.5 A Then using the U = R x I equation w...

Re: Competition CEO: New Year 2019

I will do some tests with AIC but I'm not very skilled at graphics in the first place, therefore I'm even less skilled at AIC :cry: Not sure I will be focusing on this game now, I may develop something else as an entry for the contest. Anyway, just wanted to know how many people were considering tak...

Re: Port Crazee Rider?

Well, I wasn't including 3D Fongus in the "3D racing category" although this point can be argued of course, because you can race planes as well as you can race cars :D Anyway, I totally agree with you, 3D Fongus was probably the most impressive 3D game on the Oric, and was in addition one of the mos...

Re: Port Crazee Rider?

Wow... I didn't know the "Starter 3D" game, I tried it and yes, it's definitively the best ever 3D rtacing game on the Oric on the technical side !! Unfortunately, it's quite unplayable, I was unable to pass the 2 qualification laps, and you don't even know the maximum lap time to get qualified... I...

Re: Competition CEO: New Year 2019

Ok, thanks for clarifying this Didier! So I suppose I could get on with my "Heroric" project (clone of H.E.R.O., see my avatar, I'm still hesitating between going full colour with attribute clash, or using AIC mode on this :D) as there is little chance that Atari would sue us.. And by the way this g...

Re: Wich scripting language for OSDK ?

Hi, I know almost next to nothing about Lua, but it seems to get a lot of traction in gaming, and I've always meant to learn it, and finally, amongst all options it seems to be the best one for me. So, +1 for Lua too :) Python would have been a good candidate too, another one to consider also would ...

Re: Competition CEO: New Year 2019

Great initiative from the CEO, I am longing to see all the good contributions that will come out of it, and I will also try my best to contribute ! :D There is one rule though in this contest (only listed on the entry form) that I didn't pay attention to at first but that is of particular importance...

Re: Oric Explorer v2.0 is up for adoption!!!

Hi, At long last I have just published the "Work in Progress" version of Oric Explorer 2.0 on Github: GitHub - laurentd75/OricExplorer I really want to apologize to the Oric community for this appalling delay, explained in part by a number of unforeseen events and commitments, and in part by my very...

Re: Multiple IF THEN ELSE on the same line?

Hi, For what it's worth, here's a small test I wrote (for a completely different matter that is however slightly related to your "Encounter" series...) to see whether (and how many) imbricated IF THEN ELSE statements worked in Oric BASIC: I honestly was amazed it did work... 10 L=1:GOSUB100 20 L=2:G...

Re: ORIC ULA on a CPLD ?

Take a look HERE and HERE - whole Oric in FPGA. Hi guys, Just stumbled on this thread and I wanted to clarify the status of the "Oric in FPGA" project": First of all, I am not involved in any way in this project. However, I created the Github repository for the Oric-in-FPGA project 5 years ago usin...

Re: OType

Ok, I found back the disk with Impossible Mission tune, not exactly the same and playing slower. Two questions: 1- where do I post it? .../... 2- I also made a mp3 of the tune, with a fake stereo (simply created by a little delay between left annd right channels). Anyone interested? That's great, t...

Re: OType

Do you want to turn your Oric into a synthesiser, and never use it for anything else? :P. Because this is how we get synthesisers. :) No, I'll keep my Oric for games and programming :D But now that you mention synthetisers, I actually have a bunch of AY/YM chips and I alread built a circuit similar...
