Software News   Software News : Oricutron 0.7 released for OS4!
   posted by xeron on 20-Sep-2010 20:44:24 (2244 reads)
Oricutron (formerly known as Oriculator) is an emulator for the Oric 1, Oric Atmos, Oric Telestrat and Pravetz 8D computers. Today 0.7 was released for AmigaOS 4.x. You can download it here.



Changes since v0.6:

General:

* Added Telestrat support, although it doesn't work enough to be useful yet.
* Added Pravetz-8D support, although the Pravetz/Apple disk system is not supported yet.
* Added some error checking to the command-line argument parsing.
* Standard return codes on exit.
* IJK and PASE/Altai joystick emulation (thanks to Twilighte and Stefan Haubenthal for info)
* For all ROM image files, Oricutron now looks for a corresponding ".pch" file with information about the ROM, such as patch addresses for turbotape, or the keyboard layout expected by the ROM.
* ROM filenames are now specified in the config file.
* Now uses SDL_RWops to load images and ROMs for better cross-platform compatibility (thanks to revolf).
* The disk emulation now updates sector CRCs when writing to disk (oops!)
* OpenGL rendering mode with optional display aspect stretching.
* Optional scanline simulation.
* You can toggle fullscreen mode from the menus.
* Software rendering mode now has a 32bit mode as well as 16bit. Oricutron attempts to select the optimal mode, but it can be overridden in the config file (thanks to Alexandre Devert)

Debugger/Monitor:

* For all ROM image files, Oricutron now looks for a corresponding ".sym" file with symbols for the debugger when that ROM is active.
* Disassembling to file now uses full symbol names.
* Supports CC65/VICE style label files (thanks to Stefan Haubenthal).
* You can now create or move symbols while using the assembler.
* You can create, delete and export symbols from the monitor commandline.
* Added a memory modify command.
* Fixed breakpoint behaviour. Before, when the CPU hit a breakpoint, the rest of the emulation would execute for the cycles of that command, even though the command wasn't executed.

Amiga/MorphOS:

* Pressing help brings up the AmigaGuide readme. (thanks to Stefan Haubenthal)

Cool. The AVI capture on AmigaOS 4 almost works, only some wrong colors.
Hope it will gets fixed so, so I can record some cool Oric movies, right on my Amiga. Thanks.

The AVI capture works perfectly on OS4, but MPlayer (and possibly FFMPeg) have some endian issues with the codec that I use, so if you upload the output from Oricutron straight to youtube, or transfer it to a PC, it'll play back fine.

Good to know that the recording capability is working fine. I will record some more game solutions now, instead of coding
I already recorded solutions for the Sokoban clone Danger Zone, but there are so many other cool Oric games to record. Thank you for your efforts.
Thanks also for the Pravetz-8D support.

Oh cool. Were those videos recorded in Oricutron?

@xeron, no, because I thought the recording capability was not working properly. But from now on, I can use Oricutron,. if the speed with recording is correct on my AmigaOne.
My test in the morning showed correct speed, but 100% CPU load.
