Re: Oric DSK Manager

I believe you are right, I did not know about the merged files either until last week.

Spam and Inactive users

Thanks to the manual registration, the forum has avoided a massive wave of spam, since Saturday morning about 150 accounts have been created but they stayed inactive. What I did is that I changed the "captcha" question on the registration page, and I mass deleted all the inactive users. What that me...

Re: INSERT MASTER DISC IN DRIVE A

Sorry, I was gone for the week-end (family celebration thingy), I'll take a look later. I did try to patch the .h already a few days ago, but it did not work, I guess I fumbled when I did it. For reference my version looked like that: Line 265: 0x49,0x4E,0x53,0x45,0x52,0x54,0x20,0x4D,0x73,0x74,0x20,...

Re: Oric DSK Manager

Do you think that loading the three patch files one after the other, instead of as a merged one, would still work fine?

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

I managed to find a bit of free time for a new video, this time I worked on the replayability of the game by adding a high-score table.

Re: Horizontal HIRES and Text scrolling code needed.

HIRES scrolling is generally a very context specific operation, and ultimately it depends on a number of factors: - How much memory are your willing to use - Do you need to scroll the entire HIRES screen - Does the scroll area contains attributes or not - Do you use some backbuffer (or work directly...

Re: Oric DSK Manager

Re: bas2tap/tap2dsk bugs

I guess we could just extend the TestSuite with a few programs to test these cases. http://miniserve.defence-force.org/svn/public/pc/tools/osdk/main/TestSuite/ The idea is the following: :: :: The idea is to run each of the OSDK tools to generate a particular set of data, :: and then check if the re...

Re: INSERT MASTER DISC IN DRIVE A

The version that comes with Tap2Dsk *is* a master version, else the SYS, INIT, MOVE, etc... commands would not be working. Do you know where I can find a patched version of Sedoric 3, or at least a version of Sedoric 3 with the patching routine, known to be working? If you find one, I could update t...

Re: INSERT MASTER DISC IN DRIVE A

So, regarding Sedoric, what I'm using is the version that comes with Tap2Dsk, which is basically a "source-codeified" version of Sedoric 3 (without the patches) I tried the patch earlier, for some reason it did not work, I know the patch was applied because I got "Mst 3" in the text. Does Sedoric 4 ...

INSERT MASTER DISC IN DRIVE A

I've some more questions about Sedoric. The operating system is "bank based" with various commands present in various blocs: "BACKUP" is in BLOC 2, "DELETE" and "MOVE" are in BLOC 1, etc... The first time you access a command which is in a bloc that is not yet loaded, you get this annoying message: ...

Re: OSDK 1.11

The original reason for the OSDK having its own set of Fabrice tools is that originally this repository on SourceForge did not exist, and Fabrice builds were compiled for DOS, failing to run on 64 bit windows. But yeah, I should import all his changes, should probably do that when I get the time to ...
