This demo should have been put on a demonstration tape for new Orics :) ..and the sentence "Sound abilities of Spectrum.+" is not true, Spectrum+ doesn't have AY chip

Factor: Which models have the AY chip? Spectrum 128? Other? If I release a fixed version I can fix that as well :)

baah: I had the spaceship pixel painted in Oric format, but I forgot it on my desktop at home:

Guess that should go in the final version as well.

Liked the idea/presentation.

I liked the idea, but it feels a bit dissapointing that it ended so soon.

Good idea, but incomplete implementation!

Dbug: right, the AY soundchip is contained just in Spectrum 128k on.

Sorry, forgot my thumb up!
rulez added on the 2013-07-15 13:05:41 by evills evills
@Dbug: write then just "Spectrum 128" instead of "Spectrum+". The AY chip is present in all 128K Spectrums and up (+2/+2A/+3).

@bittin: thx, i've seen it already, but a dbug's version would probably be something to look at (he just has to be funny now! ;p ).

Instructive :)
It's great to see you keep spreading the love of the Oric, Dbug! Looking forward to the final version and your upcoming releases.

The source code is now available: http://miniserve.defence-force.org/svn/public/oric/demos/30years/

I did not have the courage/time to revisit it and try to fix the loader bug, so this version is exactly what was released, except I cleaned up commented out code, removed useless files, etc...

In the process I noticed that the 'floppy builder' is buggy and crashes if files are read-only, also either the floppy builder or loader fail to handle files that do not fit on the same track.

At least that gives a basis for people who want a 'working' loader :)

Nice one.

The archive has been updated with a v1.1 fixed:
- the rasters were missing one the top scanline
- replaced the loader by the new one (Cumulus compatible)
- fixed the random crash on load bug

Now I learnt something about the Oric! Well done!
