Re: OricExos - making the impossible

Nobody knew how to lock-step 4 ULAs in the 1980s, or if they did, they were keeping very quiet about it ;) And even if they did, they would have needed to buy four Orics, which was not especially cheap, as well as design and print PCBs manually because there were no PCB design tools available on th...

Apropos Oricutron builds - I'd be happy to assume package maintainer/release duties for Oricutron on MacOS.
Then this forum is not the place to start. ;)
Please contact Pete Gordon on GitHub.

Re: Oricutron and illegal opcode 80

Anyway it's interesting, because if this file is from a different source, it confirms that the bug is on the original tape, hence Durell had a very unreliable masters for their tapes duplication (there were also strange things in Scuba Dive IIRC). I initially thought that this may be part of a prot...

Re: OSDK 1.14 RC

Strange: [...] (Just noticed that the #file paths are not pointing to the right path, they seem to use the current working directory instead of actual path) are you using the exact version downloaded, or is it a modified/recompiled version?

Re: OSDK 1.14 RC

New weekend, new version: http://www.osdk.org/files/osdk_1_14_rc3.zip Nice, thanks! \(^^)/ with a special thanks from Fabrice saying "Please thank Neko, he is the only one doing his tests in -O0 so that's why he finds all these problems". You are making me blush. (^^;) Fabrice is obviously the one ...

Re: Oric logo and trademark

>I'm afraid he's far too busy with real life right now. Then perhaps we ought to have a call to arms in the Oric community to ensure we are safe from these criminals. A trademark is something you buy the rights to. That company asserts that it owns the trademark so this means they bought the rights...

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

So, regarding this emulator build, it is not a new "exos mode" in Oricutron, it's actually a dedicated version of Oricutron that always boot in Exos mode, correct? Absolutely correct - it's OricExos dedicated version and I think this the right way to go - no need to "damage" main Oricutron sources....

Re: Securing sources of (official) Oric chips

... there must be something about Bulgaria attracting Oric users :) ... This 'something' is called Pravetz-8D :D. All Pravetz-8D are equipped with original ULA's! I really don't think that someone here ordered chips from CDI for Pravetz-8D production but they got them as you said from re-sellers. I...

Re: OSDK 1.14 RC

I got another bug with 1.14 RC2 which did not exist in 1.13 (no idea about 1.14RC since I did not test with it). What happens is that this line appears in linked.s, which obviously cannot be assembled since it is invalid syntax: beq *+8 : asl tmp : rol : dex : bne *-4 : ldx tmp :(tmp0,tmp1,tmp0) th...

Securing sources of (official) Oric chips

Hello kitties, Chema just posted a link to an eBay vendor for an Oric ULA (cf http://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopic.php?p=19421#p19421). This raised my interest because that vendor obviously has a lot of them for sale so they must have access to a back-then official stock of Oric chips. Since all...

Re: OSDK 1.14 RC

The comments seem to assume that clockValue contains 1, so maybe a minimum program would not call "clock()" but just have "unsigned long clockValue = 1;" and the #include <time.h>" could also be removed :) No no no ;). That is precisely the bug! \oO;/ As I mentioned in the original post about that ...

Re: Oric logo and trademark

Licence wise, can any of the actual good emulators (Euphoric, Oricutron, Clock, ...) be used in a commercial product? Good question. I think it is indeed a good idea to use non-commercial licenses for emulators. This has the double advantage of not having one's work used unduly by someone else for ...
