Re: QL ROM switcher

Sorry to be a bit negative, but I don't get it. I see it of very limited use, it could easily be so much more. What _would_ be useful would be able to switch between JS, Minerva, and still have 384K Flash left over for SMSQ/E. Removing board to reprogram?, a bit awkward for average user to update. B...

Re: Tetroid interfaces hardware info

It is indeed interesting - I must admit that when I had a QubIDE I no longer booted from microdrive so would not have noticed this behaviour. I do however, seem to recall the Miracle HD disk chained properly with the Trump Card - ie win1_boot, flp1_boot, mdv1_boot, but then I might be mistaken - it...

Re: Scart to HDMI upscaler

HI, I am hoping they would send it as a gift and the customs would not look at it closely. But payament of the VAT is clear problem and import more than one would mean import tax and VAT. Maybe not worth the effort. Tricky situation, there are several items I would like from China at similar price ...

Re: SMSQ/E for the QL?

Solved, the module to initialise ROM port on Gold card was missing off the end of the list. I have recompiled v3.31 and Miracle Hard disk system now works. I have sent info to Wolfgang, but if you want copy of working GOLD v3.31 in the meantime then PM your email address.

Re: SMSQ/E for the QL?

And a SMSQ version that is just compiled to be compatibile with MIRACLE Winny Hard Drive and Lighting ROM? Thanks It should work, I'll try latest SMSQ with my MHD (I usually use v2.90 with GC+MHD). It might be the old problem of not resetting the MHD hardware on a soft reset. It needs to be paged b...

Re: Issue 8 and WiFi

Indeed. Causes one minor problem, solves many. With the Issue 8 having internet connectivity, it would be easy for new software to do all kinds of online distribution, automatic or manual updates, have downloadable content larger than the QL could hold, do online registration. All in all, a much ni...

Re: Issue 8 and WiFi

...115200 would be about the maximum. From what I've read recently not many people have had much success with baud rates >115200 anyway. Apparently, even 16MHz AVRs have only achieved reliable 115200 between similar boards (same latency etc). ...all interrupts on the QL are level 2, so level 5 is s...

Re: Issue 8 and WiFi

I don't know. I can honestly say I have no fondness for microdrives. I was actually physically bullied over them as a teenager. The other kids were playing with their shiny new 3.5" drives in 1985 when I got my first QL from Dixon's. I think it's fair to say I equate microdrives with asbestos,...
