Re: Oric Games Trade

Well, on that one I judge the rarity by simply looking at ebay (.fr/.co.uk mostly), sell my retro, etc... for about two years.
Some of the stuff you find again and again, and some thing is just very infrequent.

Re: Oricutron 1.0 (EDIT: Now 1.2)

Actually, an incorrect handling of the zero flag in BCD mode probably caused subtle issues in dozen of games but nobody noticed. As far as I'm concerned, I use BCD mostly when handling score increments because it's cheaper to store the numbers split two by two on each byte when you want to display t...

This week I had to move two topics in the correct categories. If we want this forum to stay a useful source of information over the long run, please post your messages in the relevant categories, "General" should be the last choice you make. If you are asking questions about a Game, use the Game cat...

Re: Telestrat failure?

You can add WD40 to the list of things that can dissolve this type of crap, I used that to clean the Yamaha Tape drive that had melted belts remnants all over the pulleys and gears :)

Re: Oric Games Trade

Yeah, I'm willing to pay. What's the Lost in Space situation? Did you get one from Baz? I have one to swap if needed but can't find the other title. From Baz I got Oric CAD with the manual (which is in better condition than the one I got earlier). If you Lost in Space is in decent condition, it's d...

Re: Oriclopedia: Tansoft

I've shown all the manuals I have (for Tansoft programs).

1043 titles is not bad at all :)
Does that include unique games, or also French versions of Tansoft programs and Spanish releases of Loriciels games?

Re: Oric 1 with messy video problem

Generally speaking, the antenna/aerial output only works (unmodified) with British TVs. The recommended way to get a good picture with the right colors is to use the RGB output connector. If you have something like a Commodore Amiga monitor, you can just do a pin to pin connection and it will work, ...

Re: cataloguing tapes

I notice that for 9700, the corresponding value is A59C, so I guess they go in pairs? 9700 would have A5, 9701 has 9C? And I take it none of the addresses in the block get missed out? Not necessarily in pairs, in the 6502 instructions can occupy one, two or three bytes. In this case, A5 9C maps to ...

Re: New conversion algorithm

Regarding the OSDK, the official version is actually on my SVN depot, the neko version is a fork where he is doing tests (he works on mac). I'm going to let you all play with the lua version, and when you are happy, we can convert it to C or C++ and add it as a new method for pictconv, with whatever...

Re: Oric Games Trade

I updated the top post by removing the software which were gone (and adding a couple on my wish list, as well as some non Oric games I have to swap as well): - I received today's Oric CAD from Baz (with the manual) and he should have received my two flipper games - Packaged swapped with Symoon's are...

Re: New conversion algorithm

Nice work, what I'm wondering though is why out of all the possible names in the galaxy, did the two persons who came up with decent conversion algorithm for the Oric have to be named *sam*! In PictConv I've this: -f6 => Sam method (Img2Oric) so if I wanted to integrate this new Algorithm I would ha...

Re: OSDK 1.15

The only sizable C programs are the ones you people are writing. (My own programs only use C for the skeleton code, all the rest is in assembler) The C compiler and the macros are mostly Fabrice work, not much I'm doing except building my windows version for the OSDK. That being said, with what was ...
