Oric Links

Oric Org
Probably the single most important site out there. News, a software database, chat facilities and more! Now taking up a lot of my time, so not so many updates here at the 'Dragon!

Oric World
A major site by Fabrice Francés, lots of Oric stuff here including the Oric emulator Euphoric, which has its home here. PC users can download version 0.99n of the Oric emulator, then follow this link to get the upgrade to version 1.00. Also includes a Microtan 65 section.

Club Europe Oric
Homepage of the CEO. Includes a huge list of Internet Oric resources. Don't forget to subscribe to their magazine - it's excellent!

Swedish Oric Homepage
Hakan's site is back! One of the the best sites to visit online, it has returned. Lots of Oric goodies to download from here including the Oric 1 manual.

Defence Force
Dbug's website. Another site with lots to see & do. Contains an Oric programming tutorial, a library of Oric book covers (some complete downloads too), downloads of excellent Oric demos & much more!

M.E.S.S Homepage
This multi-machine emulator now emulates the Oric. Not as good as Euphoric, but also emulates lots of other machines.

Pascal's Oric Page
As well as some nice Oric icons, Pascal is working on improving the Oric ROM. The V1.22 ROM for the Atmos is here. Includes a Euro symbol for Europhiles! An improved DRAW command (25% faster) was featured in V1.21. Bug fixes are also included such as for the IF, THEN, ELSE error. Fully backwards compatible with previous ROMS.

Geoff Phillips' Homepage
Geoff was an Oric programmer & author in days of yore. Visit his site for some of his memories & a complete transcript of his book on graphics & machine code.

The homepage of Jonathan Bristow - author of many Oric programs. A website with a lot to see & do. This site is big, there is a lot to download and lots of technical info for your delectation.

Romu's Oric Site
