Last week, Mickael Pointier a.k.a. Dbug wrote me and quoted my Usenet posting from 1996 where I claimed that it is impossible to write decent video code for the Oric, as the video controller has no processor-readable registers. He wanted me to see his demo (http://defence-force.org/computing/oric/dbug/stniccc_2000/index.htm). I still haven't seen it, since his demo needs to be adapted for the Oric-1 firmware (it invokes some Oric Atmos ROM routines). Anyway, I got a reason to try the C2N232 harder on the Oric. This time, I obtained some useful pointers from Mickael, including one to the tap2wav utility written by Fabrice Frances. The needed modification to the C2N232 firmware, to support asymmetric pulses, was smaller than I feared. I'll publish the updated firmware once I've completed the software. For my first test, I used GNU Emacs to edit the tap2wav output and C-Kermit over xterm to copy the pulse data from Emacs to the C2N232. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
