Spider, many thanks for the tip! Using ZIP made a huge difference. The AVI files compressed something like 93%, going from 163MB to only 9MB. I uploaded the videos in one ZIP file here, they are in the "Other resources" section. If the YouTube videos look awful and blurred, you can download the ZIP file, uncompress it and try to see the AVI files using a video player. On Fedora Linux 27, mplayer worked fine, but I am pretty sure others will too!

I will publish all videos on YouTube soon. I intend to complete the last four rooms if I can, then gonna make the videos public.
 

Hi guys! I am happy to say I have completed all 32 ORIC Manic Miner rooms now. But not in a row, of course. Just practicing each room individually with infinite lives enabled.

 

The first 16 rooms I did not document with video captures, the second half containing the last 16 screens on the other hand IS documented. I wrote a small article about this mission:

For reasons unknown to me, with some web browsers the YouTube videos are clear, with others they are ugly and blurred. I have the original Oricutron emulator's AVI video capture files and I can share them if there is a place to upload them. My kolttonen.fi site has limited storage space, so I cannot host the AVI files there. They are 163MB in total.

 

EDIT: If you guys want to embed those YouTube videos directly to this fantastic site, just go ahead! The link above points to a simple HTML page, the code can be copied from there.

Regarding Oricutron, it works fine on Linux. I have packaged it for Fedora Linux for easy installation.

Regarding House of Usher, yes, it is a crazy platformer for C64, Amstrad, Atari. The relevance is that it too contains INVISIBLE platforms, making the game near impossible to play. Manic Miner is hard, sure, but House of Usher is so hard it is... well, unplayable for most people, including me.

I kept on pushing, rooms 27 and 28 now completed too! Only four more rooms to go. But I am now too exhausted to continue. The ORIC specific rooms are now done and I got video captures of all of them!!!

Okay, I drank a can of energy drink and started practicing. After twenty attempts or so, I finally completed room 26, In A Deep Dark Hole. I actually completed it TWICE. Before the first successful attempt, I forgot to press F10 in Oricutron, so there was no video capture. If I can complete the rest of the ORIC specific rooms, I will publish the videos as examples of how you could complete this game.
Channel Tunnel is the next room, it looks horrifying to be sure.
