Yes, nearly 1 year after the release of the Issue 6.1, I finally made the Issue 7 that would fix the VSYNC problem the previous release had!
What’s new in the Issue 7:
- There is now a 2 pin header to plug a reset button
- The hardware VSYNC should now work correctly
- One of the two ROM socket has been removed to reduce the schematic complexity, but it is now possible to use the original ROM, or any EPROM without the need to change anything on the PCB, because the /ROMDIS signal has been changed!
- Better, it is now possible, and easily to use a 32K EPROM with the addition of a switch (there are pin on the PCB for this) to select the memory bank.

During the AC 2014 convention, they organize a Speed Coding party, this year the theme was around “Alice in Wonderland” with the contrain of a 2 player game. I was (not) really inspired by this year theme, and started saturday evening to draw some tiles for the oric trying to looks like the White rabbit and the mad Hater, after the night I finally had an idea to make some sort of a Winter/Summer Game where Alice and her friends (and foe) play against each other in a competition. Starting so late, I wans’t able to do a lot of things so I only had the time to make a “pull the rope” like minigame, where you need to quickly presse two button to pull the rope on your side.
