Re: macadam bumper

Well, now Oricutron is fixed and you can play Macadam Bumper! Short info about the bug-hunting: In common the problem was that you can't insert coins to start game i.e. pressing 'P' does nothing, this is disassembled part of related code: L1E22: ldx #$0F ; 1E22 A2 0F L1E24: sed ; 1E24 F8 clc ; 1E25 ...

Re: Oric 1 with messy video problem

... and after you confirm that above solution works, maybe you will ask for battery-less setup ;).
Here you can find voltage-doubler+charge-pump using synchro signal.

Or you can solder DIN-5-male to DIN-5-male cable:

I hope this helps :)

Re: Oric 1 with messy video problem

Looking in the Service Manual (page 16) there should be NO problem to use SCART input with Oric: monitor.png But definitely you must put some voltage ( 1–3 V → RGB ) at SCART'S Pin 16 ! Disassemble the SCART connector and connect an external battery (or maybe 2 x 1.5 V in series) ' minus ' goes to P...

Re: cataloguing tapes

+1 @christian !

Just for the record: you can set the start address from inside the assembler source too inserting this as first line:

Code: Select all

        * = $9700
L_9700  LDA    $9C             ; 9700  A59C

Re: New conversion algorithm

Congrats, sam ! Last version works for me and the result is cool. Just some minor, random, very-Linux-specific thoughts: - use dos2unix to convert lua source line endings; - if the first source line is: #!/usr/bin/env lua and chmod +x oric_tst5.lua then you can execute directly from bash: ./oric_tst...

I'm converting into TAP a program that uses STORE and RECALL commands.
What is the source type of the program being converted to TAP?
