Load .tap file

Since v2020.3, a lot of games starts. If you have some problem with .tap file, you can add a topic (in english or french https://ceo.oric.org/community/orix/ and we will try to answer.

There is 3 versions of basic rom. For instance, we have released only one. But, others version can start the hobbit or frelon. For example.

Each version of the rom can be loaded on the card in a ram bank or rom bank with orixcfg and starts with bank with the id of the bank

Known .tap which does not start

  • maybe “L’aigle d’or” but we did not test it on all available rom yet

Joysticks

Games can be played with joystick port of twilighte board without any game patch. The basic ROM can handle it.

If you want to play to a game with joystick port, you need to plug a DB9 joystick (atari type) in a port of the twilighte board.

You need to start rom with basic11 command (or bank command)

Now, if you have already a tape file to load keyboard/joystick conversion, you can cload it, and run it. And, now you can cload the game.

When you want to set key and joystick direction, you need to poke in zero page, matrix keyboard code in each offset :

  • $f5: Down
  • $f6: Right
  • $f7: Left
  • $f8: Fire
  • $f9: Up

A matrice.tap exists in order to type on the keyboard, and get the matrix keyboard. You can also csave your configuration too and cload after this.
