Re: 65c816 and twilighte board/orix : here we go :)

Nice, I guess you are still limited to 64k address space, or did you find a way to access more ram?

Re: Oric extender - a basis for DIY projects and experiments

Cool, so basically using this as a reference design, it's possible to make cards that can use address spaces that don't overlap on each other and can then run alongside properly? Hmmm, yes, but I didn't even thought about such possibility :). For sure there should be added one more 34-pin connector...

Re: IJK-egopad the joypad for Oric by [raxiss]

I was wondering about something: All these Joysticks are using DB9 connectors, we need 2 pins for +5v and ground, 4 pins for the for directions, so why do we have only one fire button? We have two additional pins, can't they be used to handle some additional fire button, or some select/menu/pause?

@jbperin: Attached are all Oric related ROM files for Clock Signal (together with a txt file which explains 'who's'who') ;).
Looks like the clk-rompack archive only contains a "Erebus_case_bottom.stl" file.

Re: IJK-egopad the joypad for Oric by [raxiss]

Question: What happened if you take two Orics, each with a IJK Egoist interface, and you connect both to the joypad, one on each connector :)
Would that work, or would that crash and burn horribly?

Re: Source code repository discussion

It's pretty opaque what source code this thread is talking about, We area talking of "svn.defence-force.org" which had the source code for the OSDK, as well as sources of some games and demos. but for my emulator I have GitHub set up automatically to build the SDL version upon any push to a branch ...

Re: What works on Erebus? Welcome to Oric and best other demo.

I already also ordered a Cumana Reborn, but that will take some patience still as it is pre-order. Does converting the .tap image of Welcome to Oric Atmos to a disk image for the Cumana work? Or is that thinking to easily? Normally the Sedoric 3 floppy already comes with the "Welcome" already prese...

Re: Twilighte card & sittler card (sdcard/joysticks/mouse)

So, in practice, how is that implemented, is that in the card firmware? By the way, I was thinking of your video on the CEO meet where you said that joystick support was done by tricking out the keyboard handler in ROM calls, and I wondered how these old programmable joystick interfaces actually wor...

Re: Twilighte card & sittler card (sdcard/joysticks/mouse)

Cool!
Now we're talking :D

I assume it works in both direction: You can create folders and files on the Oric, and they are directly accessible from the PC?

Re: Source code repository discussion

I suggest we drop the evangelism for either source control system, Ibisum is obviously a git lover, and I'm a git disliker, and that has nothing to do with knowing in detail the system (and for the record I have worked for years with Visual Source Safe, CVS, SVN and Perforce, and had some occasional...

Re: Source code repository discussion

That was the main justification for going with SVN: Easy to learn and use, hard to misuse.

@Ibisum: What makes gitlab better than GitHub?
