Re: Coming Soon: a new Spanish text adventure

¡Excelente! No puedo esperar a verlo :D. Unfortunately this is the limit of all my Spanish skills and on-line translators will not help much. Any chance for English version soon or kind of cooperative work for localization in other languages? Can't answer that... The authors are Spanish people and ...

Re: Protek joystick interface diagram ?

I've always thought the IJK interface is the only sensible way to go, even if it prevents you from using a printer (game or work, you chose :) ), but yeah, most games do not support joystick, let alone IJK, so I understand the benefits of a programmable joystick. Surprisingly as it may seem, I've ne...

Re: Mass storage options for Oric

Are there any projects related to making a floppy emulator that runs on an RPi? I got a Pi1541 for my C64 and I’ve been quite satisfied with it. The problem with emulation of floppies in the Oric is the controller part. This is quite a complicated piece of hardware, which interfaces through the exp...

The Hobbit: Disk, Erebus,...

Hi everyone! I am quite sure we talked about this already, but it has come out in the Facebook Oric groups, so... The Hobbit seems to use non-standard loading routines, so it is not working from EREBUS. It also fails to load on Oricutron, unless you disable turbo-tape. I am also sure that this is we...

Re: Dungeon Master on the Oric: 24 years later

Use the arrows and space bar (and let the user redefine the keys maybe)

Then maybe use some shortcuts for usual actions, something such as SHIFT+T for Take...

Re: How to use MACROS with OSDK

You cannot use macros.h as is... There are many definitions missing. If you just want an example of a macro with parameters here is one, from the sources of 1337 (multiplication routine http://miniserve.defence-force.org/svn/users/chema/1337/TINE/oobj3d/lib3d.s) #define MULTAY(par) sta MultLo1 : sta...

Re: Pictoric (was: New conversion algorithm)

For me AIC is simply a technique that allows you to display colourful background images over which you can render masked sprites with much less attribute clash. The technique is based on alternating different colours for each line and make use of fill patterns and scans set as inverse. From that on,...

Re: How to use MACROS with OSDK

I am not sure I understand, Didier. Are you trying to use the macros included with the C compiler? Are you trying to define your own macros (they work the same as in the C preprocessor, using #defines)?
