Re: Paste from clipboard problem

This may not be of any use to the situation, but I recently ran into a few times with bas2tap that it produces corrupt output if the line numbers are too variant, or indeed big, and I solved the problem by using an online Basic-listing renumbering tool, which 'normalised' the line numbers throughout...

Re: OType

Oh, I've read that again .. and again .. and yes, I wonder to myself, Twilighte built so many beautiful prototypes of things, and then just built the thing .. what a beautiful coder he was.

Re: Microdisc in ebay

I bid on it in the 150's but I knew it was gonna go north, so I just sat back and cried. :-

Anyway, if anyone here ever wants to sell theirs .. I know its a long-shot .. I'm here in all fairness.

Re: OType

I think that CCSXS demo image was constructed using the TGS, or at least some of those tiles look familiar .. and I agree, we should really try to finish Twi's games .. Wurlde is mind-blowing, and OType just seems like it needs the last 5% of the effort to wrap it into a release.

Re: Oric Tshirts

Meh .. we can easily out-do these t-shirt designs within our community. I'd love to have a Blakes 7 shirt, and I've often thought, when observing the splash-screen animating, that it would be cool to get Twilightes' logo on a t-shirt, sort of to remember him by.

Point is, lets make t-shirts. ;)

Re: OType

Balls, I wish we had sources for these things. Just more motivation to crack into the monitor and just read the assembly... listening it seems he also coded parameter-based effects, such as a delay and reverb as well .. I can imagine that the way he does the portamento effects is by shifting the EG ...

Re: OType

I believe the horizontal scroll is done on 6-pixel boundaries, but I could be wrong about that.

And yes, that music is f'in BADASS. I wanna hear it from a real Oric ..

Re: HIRESMAN

Yes, I would second the call for a "Twilighte Archives Project" .. there is so much that he left behind, buried in this forum and in the SVN, as well as all over the Internet .. before things get too dusty, perhaps we should try to preserve it all in a single source, somehow? I'm still finding gems ...

Re: Blake's 7 - French version / Version française

I think it was more to do with the event than anything else .. plus it was my first time trying to play it on a real Oric, and it was a lot more frustrating to move the cursor than I remembered from playing on Oricutron, and that might have coloured things for the other guys who tried to play after ...

Re: HIRESMAN

Thanks Symoon - that is very interesting, and in fact quite topical as it seems Twilighte has implemented a few of the things I'm trying to do with my Oric project .. so as always, so much to learn from the master.
