New book downloadable

The Oric Library now hosts a new downloadable file, thanks to André and Simon. That one is in French, but can interest the hardware lovers, and is called Des Extensions à Construire Pour Votre Oric Atmos . You can find it there: http://www.defence-force.org/computing/oric/library/lib_hardware/index....

Could not test with DosBox and the new osdk_euphoric.bat, as it insists on copying the builded tap file into osdk.tap , which does not exist, as I have modified osdk_execute to generate the complete disk ( sp99.dsk ) file. Something to automate this could be a good idea, at least that it notices if...

Yep, I agree, I can improve on the generation of the final executable in at least two ways: - Define if a floppy has to be created, in which case we may want to specify a full list of additional files that we want to put together, and of course also the name of the DSK file... in which case OSDK exe...

Need testers !

Please, can you go on this page: http://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopic.php?p=1045#1045 This is the first version of the OSDK with native support for the BASIC. This means you can: - Output data from Bin2Txt and PictConv directly as lines of DATA in a text file - Have OSDK project that contains mo...

On another matters, I was able to convert your colored pictures (pictconv says they need to be 240 pixels wide!), even if they needed some Yep, I checked the code and it was indeed wrong. May you check this page and see if the new pictconv solve the problem ? http://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopi...

OSDK 0.016

New version, with a LOT of modifications. Version 0.016 - December the 13th 2006 - Replaced a part of the build process that was crashing Wine. It is now possible to compile an Oric program with the OSDK on a Linux machine. - If you have DosBox installed, it is now possible to run Euphoric in a wind...

I normally use pictconv to generate data, but it does not work with color pictures (at least I think so, when it is just a direct translation) I know it might not be hard to do this from the data, but it would help me a lot to have them already in sources. If the items are stored verticaly, PictCon...

Sorry if I was unclear on the "rom" part The file was tyrann 1984 (uk).tap extension. From the name it sounds to me like one of these files from "rom" websites... Try to rename the tape file to something without any space in it, like "tyrann.tap", and put it as the same place than Euphoric, then fr...

Seriously, your mastering of the video inversion still amaze me :)
These objects kicks asses, and are the kind of thing that show how sometimes the Oric graphic system can badly outperform the Spectrum :)

Re: Help - Tyrann

"Insert system disc" Basicaly this means that you are running Euphoric in "Microdisc" mode, so the Oric is waiting for a bootable disc to be inserted. If you want to load Tyran, just try to drag and drop the TAP file on the Euphoric.exe program, and this should run Euphoric in default "load the tap...

I may try (once I figured out how) to modify my osdk_build so it creates a disk with a small BASIC program that turns to hires, loads the screen and then the game code from disk, so we have allways a test dsk with the complete game layout. Are you the one who was not that sure that native integrati...

I think that Simon is right on this. In the Sedoric and microdisc manual ( http://www.defence-force.org/computing/oric/library/lib_dos/manuel_microdisc_et_sedoric/index.htm ) there is an indication that the INIT command supports between 16 and 19 sectors per track. Each sector being 256 bytes long. ...

In fact I am testing a couple of small routines that give the possibility of reading/writing sectors in a disk (I posted them on the 6502 programming thread). After some testing they are mostly working, even if there are still some bugs I need to fix (with the help of Fabrice :) ). If this works, w...
