What is the OSDK ?

First thing: This is *NOT* a C compiler for the PC !

The OSDK is an "easy to use" (well, it's the original idea) cross compiler and assembler set for creating software for the Oric computers. Oric is an English brand of 6502 based 8 bits computers.

This SDK allows you to code in standard C and assembly code in a comfortable way, but also supports BASIC. The OSDK also contains Oric Emulators (Euphoric and Oricutron) that allows you to test (and debug) your programs without risking to freeze the computer (that's usually the result of native machine coding when you do mistakes).

This is a Windows SDK. Some of the executables have been rebuild using a Win32 compiler, so they cannot be executed under dos. Do not even try.

Now, if you are a Linux user, everything is not lost. Normaly this SDK works fine under Wine, and you will find detailed informations on how to configure the OSDK to be usable with Wine. The executable part does not work so far, so you will not be able to launch the programs using the built in version of Euphoric. If you find a way to do that please contact me, but in the mean time you should use some othe Oric emulator to run the programs you just managed to compile.

Updates, bug reports, requests...

Made with the OSDK

Space 1999
by José María Enguita

“An isometric adventure game, based on the original Space 1999 TV series from the 70s”

Released in 2009

“Wonderfull game”

“My favorit sci-fi tv-series in the 70th. Space 1999 is now a game for the Oric. This is GREAT!!! I have long worked to make a game about Space 1999 for the Oric, but this is much much better. But nice to see, that the Title (Space 1999) I have made, is used in the game. Now back to playing...”

“aaahhh Si c'etait sortie en 84 ou 85... l'Oric aurait mis une claque a pas mal de monde !!! Vraiment une prouesse de programmation Bravo”
