Nothing to do with PocketOric this time. In downloads you can find a special release of FModCE, the "mods" player. I added a playlist functionality which enable to play automatically a song list.
Euphoric down ?
The link for downloading Euphoric, the Oric emulator
for PC seems to be broken. I add a version of Euphoric in
Downloads. There is also the Atmos Basic.
I add some screenshots of various games. See the link
Thank you !
First, I'd like to thank all who have sent me such
kind messages following the startup of this site.
PocketOric 0.1, the neverending story ?
Hello everybody! In the title of this paragraph I acknolewdge Jonathan Haworth's book of the same name, still available on Fabrice Francès site's. (Thank you too, Fabrice for Euphoric, the first and only truly 100% Oric emulator, which runs even on a 486 ! I also thank Fabrice Broche for his excelllllllent book "L'Oric à nu" (The naked Oric ;-)). Jonathan's book details the history of this english computer, which was more successful in France than in its original country. As we say in France - "Nobody is a prophet in his own country" ! ...
For those who wish to look further into the project,
the executables and the sources can be found in the
downloads section, . The Oric Basic must be made of 4
text files of 8 KB containing the hexa code ("
Pocket PC version:
Results: speed ! 50 frames/second (!), colour, sound (still rudimentary) and a great compatibility with the majority of the games, even those in machine code (!!).
Now, to complete it all, I need to - sort out a way of saving the state of the emulator to be able to reload a game in progress, - improve the fidelity of the sound (but, in the train, I stop it or I listen to MP3, therefore this is not a priority), - and to perfect the keyboard emulation...
Now, I invite you to discover the beta 0.1 release. This version brings you the terrors of the "Manor of Doctor Genius" (The evil dwarf who stabs you at the most unexpected moment), the "Mystery of Kikekankoi" and its hidden city, and the "Golden Eagle," a precursor to Tomb Raider ;-)
Can anyone explain to me how to use the sound output on Pocket PC in C to emulate Oric sound ? I've tried with "wav" but with limited success.
In order to enable you to test the emulator immediately, I've provided Oric1 Basic and a game. If this causes a copyright problem for the author or the editor, just mail me and I will withdraw them immediately
