Oric Atmos core for MiST / MiSTica loading TAPES !!!

Postby rondc » Sat Nov 30, 2019 12:47 am

Hey ! good news, it is a pride to announce that thanks to the user rampa069, we finally have a fully functional 48K Oric Atmos core for MiST and MiSTica FPGA Boards.

It is not a definitive version, it is still a version that has a long way to go, but we need comments.

We have tested normal and fast loads. Feedback what loads, what it sounds like, what things it does well and what things it does wrong.

The audio loads, you just have to connect the audio to the EAR and load with CLOAD "".
Please, feedback needed. Can't upload core in this post, i'll try in next one. Else you can download from RW.

Here is the Oric Atmos 48K core for testing purposes.

Please, feedback. I'm sure rampa069 already has updated his git.

This is very nice, finally Oric 48K loading all programs !!! NICE !!!! :cheers:

The Menu (F12) is bugged. Tested on MiST.

By the moment the OSD is disabled, and part of the RAM to complete the 64K was taken from there. The next thing will be to learn to correctly handle the SDRAM. In short, timers, clks, lines and a couple of weeks doing tests. The improvements on the port are interesting. Later and once we can use the SDRAM, again OSD, load Tap and who knows ?, the Oric Microdisc and DSK support. It would have been impossible to do all this without the invaluable help of rampa069

We have been making some more tests.

Great news! I may end up buying a Mist ;)

Did you guys try to push the limits by testing some special loading routines, such as TAP2CD, TAP2F16 or Novalight?

I'm no MIST expert and see there seem to be different models... MIST, MISTer, MISTica?
Would this directly work on MIST sold at Lotharek's? (the one with MIDI plugs, which is quite cool).

Yes, works without problems with .wav makes with tap2f16 and novalight. To load a program in 15 seconds is awesome.

For now, only is possible to load games by audio in. MiSTica FPGA16 and SiDi (https://youtu.be/ykeQMtWr4AI?t=669) can to load by audio in without any modification or hack. About Lotharek's Mist 1.4 or MiSTer I haven't got any idea.

NataliaPC (Natalia Pujol) and rampa069 (Ramón Martínez Palomares) have made a tool to convert .tap of oric to .tsx files. These .tsx files can be loaded in a maxduino, tzxduino, miniduino player with rcmolina's firmware (https://github.com/rcmolina/MaxDuino_v1.53).

Wow, impressive! Glad Novalight works (still trying to make it faster, but won't go off topic here ;) )

Thanks for the details about the machines.
It's not an easy choice between MIST (with MIDI) and MISTica (with audio input)! Maybe I'll wait a bit, anyway I think I don't have enough spare time to use it and retirement is far from now :(

ManuFerHi's SiDi fpga has audio in and a serial port (3v3,GND, Tx, Rx). Next January he will have midi and WIFI addons available to connect them to the serial port.

I added a 3.5mm jack to my MiST v1.2 without MIDI.
I have used it for tape loading but not with this Code yet.

Geetings !

We're back !

Here we have a release candidate, it works with VGA and Svideo / Composite. For the SIDI version look at the git. :D
Audio loading, turbo, tap2cd and novalink works fine.

In broad strokes this is what has been improved:

BRAM has been passed to SDRAM ( Thanks to Slingshot, it was great !!! )
Arrangements in the sound part (AY-8912) timer settings.
Minor changes in colours. Black is black and the palette looks fine.
After several changes in the ULA, it is now fixed and improved ( a bug was present in all the Oric core for fpga since the first version, which ZXUno and MiSTer suffer)

Oric_MiST_RC1.rbf.zip


Feedback very appreciated. Have fun and enjoy the Oric. Thanks a million to rampa069 for his effort and good work.
Thanks to Geshtock, daewo999 and Slingshot, your work and help is very appreciated.-

Merry Xmas
