Re: Oric Atmos Boot-Up Query

I have 8 Atmos, an Oric-1 and a Telestrat - and they all behave differently depending on the power supply being used. I've noticed that the lower Amps, the messier the screen on boot up - maybe this is a clue? I am using a decent 9V 1A PSU what are you using for your Oric's & Telestrat ( nice :D )

You're not alone! :)
And I think I have one more Atmos with the same issue.
I don't know why this really happens, but it's interesting for investigation.

I get the same character as you most of the time - this is very odd.

Re: Oric Atmos Boot-Up Query

This one has a multi-coloured block random pattern a bit like the ZX Spectrum then it goes to a page of black & white vertical lines and then the Oric welcome screen ( plus "{" 90% of the time ). It does seem to take a bit longer to boot than my old Atmos ( unless my mind is playing tricks on me ). ...

Oric Atmos Boot-Up Query

Hi I have a new Atmos i have just bought and overall it seems in good condition. It needed some TLC though on closer inspection. The PSU Socket was very loose and i needed to replace it. Some of the keys were non-working or very intermittent. That turned out to be one key had contacts that were not ...

Re: Oric Atmos Manual Wanted

That would indeed be a "printed" copy of the manual. I was hoping somone would have a real circa 1980's manual spare, i will just keep using the PDF version for now until one turns up on eBay. :)

Re: Oric Atmos Manual Wanted

Thanks DBug, I was hoping to get a real paperback one rather than digital. I have it on my Kindle Paperwhite but it's not the same. :D

Oric Atmos Manual Wanted

Hi Guys

Been a while since I was on here due to health problems and family bereavement. So apologies if this is in the wrong place. Does anyone have a spare English Atmos user manual they would be willing to part with.
If anyone does could you drop me a PM.

Thanks.

65C02 CPU

Has anyone fitted a 65C02 in and Oric. I know you can fit it in a BBC Micro and it uses less power and gives some extra instructions - but has anyone done it in an Oric?

Re: Gamebase Oric V3.0

I'm not really hardware tech minded and I only have a very rusty knowledge of 6502 assembly, I do know BASIC but very rarely use it these days. So I can't help out as much as i would like. I do have a fair bit of spare time though and what I lack in experience I could make up with enthusiasm. So if ...

Re: Re Cumlulus Build

I would be interested, but I'm a bit confused, is this part of Godzil's push to get some more Cumulus boards built or a separate project. I think £100 would be my max limit tho' if it went over that I would have to drop out. I would probably make my own case or maybe it would bodge fit a Raspberry P...

Re: Hi from Germany

Could you post a picture of the TV screen when the Atmos crashes?. Might be helpful before you open it up. My Atmos took would hang when cold/unused and after a couple of power ups it would start working, which was down to a bad capacitor which needed replacing.If the PSU is absolutely okay to use w...
