Re: Fred 's microdisc clone?

Thanks for all the replies. Weird I heard nothing about this until recently. It would be great if the author shared the project with the community.

Fred 's microdisc clone?

By chance, I stumbled upon a disc system for our Orics that was unknown to me. https://atari-owner.com/club/threads/oric-drive-options.344/ No indications about where to find a website or any other information about the author apart from his name, Fred, and that he is from France. The design, as you...

Re: Oric-1 display problems

Which SCART cable are you using? Can you test on another TV? (I guess no) About the booting thing, the Oric was quite "lazy" on booting. I always had to plug the PSU first, then insert the jack in the Oric and not the other way round. I ended up installing a switch on the cable. What you see (with v...

Re: Oric tapes not in TOSEC

I am not sure how or who is maintaining the TOSEC, but it is a complete mess. Duplicated programs with wrong extensions (dsk for taps and viceversa), games patched to work with some kind of joystick (not indicated) or hardware, which do not work without it, no indication of disk controller type expe...

Re: IJK interface diagrams.

Re: Little sound fx generator

I looked at Oricium and Blake's 7 and saw the engine, but I couldn't figure out how values could be generated for it. That is probably because I made it for my own usage, and it is dirty indeed :oops: I encoded all the values in .byt statements and used #defnies to ease things a bit, but I did that...

Re: Little sound fx generator

It looks a lot like an advanced version of this , which I used to create the SFX in 1337, btw. For anything more complex, you'll need a kind of a sound engine. I made a simple (even naive) approach for Oricium which I reused for Blake's 7. Maybe that could bring you ideas for something more advanced...

Re: A problematic Oric 1

Well, I'm sure you'll find the cause. Good luck!

You may want to check the main signals in the CPU. A stuck IRQ or RESET, bad clock in or clock out... Just in case...
