    Announcing, PandOricutron release 1.0.8 - a Pandora port and package of the Oricutron 8-bit Emulator of Oric-1 and Atmos machines!

    Available now for your Pandora here: http://w1xer.at/pandora/PandOricutron_108.pnd

    This Pandora-exclusive package includes a set of new, free games, written and produced by contemporary fans of the Oric-1/Atmos hardware. The Oric-1/Atmos scene is still alive and still allowing a small but growing - and enthusiastic - group of fans to write neat software!

    And now you can also re-live the Oric-1/Atmos love, on your Pandora!

    Here are some screenshots of the bundled apps:

    :lol:

    Hint: Press F1 key to get the Oricutron menu, find the bundled apps in the disks/ folder, add your own disks as you see fit, wherever you see fit (and navigate to get 'em with F1..)






    Well, its an emulator of the fine Oric-1/Atmos machines of the 80's, of course!

    OOPS! A Bug report!!

    Code:
    <barnesy> torpor: Can't seem to find the double quote in Oricutron, so haven't managed to load anything yet.  I only remember cload""
    <torpor_> you can auto-load the disks!
    <torpor_> hit f1, find the disks in the disks folder, then just reset.
    <torpor_> it will autoload the games .. and yeah, there are some keyboard bugs to be fixed. ;) 
    <torpor_> but the games themselves play just fine.
    <torpor_> on pulsoids use P key to select the control scheme (arrows + space), on space 1999 it all just works, 4kkong in the compo pack works great, etc.
    <barnesy> ah yeah, got disks to work.  Had been trying by xenon 1 .tap file
    <torpor_> i will try to fix the keys and make a new release soon, but in the meantime you can still play (most) oric games!
    
    

    Have fun, let me know what you think!!

    Awesome :) is This the first released native built app or did stuckie scoop you?

    Btw zaxxon is just first release, no a name for the os as a whole. Ie: next release will start withy, bit your app should remain compatible

    I forget what that isometric game is, cool to see again :)

    I have no idea! Its certainly my first released native built app! :)

    Well, I think by the time there is a new PandoraOS release, I'll have another PandOricutron release too .. and I'll fix it then ..

    Space:1999, ftw!! :) Get some Xenon-1! Don't Press The Letter Q! Zorgons Revenge!

    EDIT: Here's a list of top Oric/Atmos titles:
