Oric-al

So I got into dabbling with the Oric again. I am working with BASIC. Once I master it, then I will attempt to work with assembly. But for now, I made it play a little song on the title screen. I also made it so pressing a key stops the program.

I think I can get the handle of drawing a sprite by changing an ASCII character to resemble one. But in the end, the burger will be yellow due to the color constraints.

So one day I hope to make an Oric program. I doubt I will ever see it run because I am in the United States and I think the Oric is PAL (I don't think any Tangerine products were released here.) The manual, although in English, spells words like 'center' as 'centre'. Which suggests that it was released in mainly Europe. I had to figure out the emulator and make it save my progress. I eventually downloaded a better version or Oricutron that enables me to save "tapes". And the milkshakes will be magenta, which is good because that's the color of strawberry milkshakes.

 

What made me decide to do this? I was bored and looking through the many folders in my website, I stumbled across one that is www.atari2600land.com/oric/ that had a few simple programs I made about 10 years ago. So it's about 2:30 a.m. here and I am not sleepy at all. If you have an ORIC, please let me know if it's possible to run programs made by computers on it, how this does. http://www.atari2600land.com/oric/burgersoric.zip has a .tap file for use, at least on Oricutron.
