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,...

Re: Winny problem

Just a thought, are you using Super Gold Card with Miracle drive? It is possible that it can cause problems due to the original driver (in RAM and 68020 cache) being quicker than the hardware. The original driver does not check the handshake condition, this was OK with original QL and Gold card. In ...

Re: Issue 8 and WiFi

Has anyone ever implemented a 16550 UART and software to use it on a QL before? The two designs I saw previously for external serials used a 6402 and a 68328. If code to use the 16550 register set/layout exists already, can someone point it out to me? I put a dual serial port ISA card (2x 16550) in...

Re: ICE and Super GoldCard

Surprised no one answered this... Does the super goldcard inhibit the use of the QL ROM port and/or the use of the ICE ROM? No they do not inhibit use, both the Gold card and Super Gold card recognise the ROM port. The only penalty is the access time (read/write) is slowed down to old QL bus speed. ...

Re: QL hardware info needed!

Trump card Version 1 (PAL1=1v4, PAL2=2v0)

$1C000-$1DFFF = WD1772 chip select (A1-A0 = A1-A0)
$1E000-$1FFFF = 74F175 clock (D3-D0 = side/motor/ds1/ds2)

I assume Trump card Version 2 uses the second 74F175 (4-bit register) for ds3/ds4.
