Re: QL Tinkering

I like 3D modelling programs and can see that we now have the prospect of 2 nice programs - this one and Tridim (see viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1153#p18715).

I wonder if features from the two programs could be brought together to give an even better solution?

Re: Pyramide Software - Some Freeware

This is excellent work.

Can the admins split off the topic to create a new topic about Tridim please (as original topic was all about Pyramide releasing some programs as freeware).

In fact, Tim Gilby (the owner of Gilsoft) is on these forums and started a thread looking for later versions of the QL Quill (Adventure writer) - http://www.qlforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php? ... 98&p=16733

Re: Bored of the Rings (game)

I definitely do not remember a QL version - although maybe something should be added to the QL Wiki about this... Was Bored of the Rings written with Quill? I am sure with the number of utilities around, it should be possible to extract the data from Spectrum Quill'd adventures and get them to work ...

Re: QL Tinkering

It looks good - there are several 3D drawing programs - a few on Dilwyn's site, but always room for one more :D

Re: Some very sad news, the passing of Lee Privett / Mr Navigator

My thoughts are with Lee's family. I met him at a few Quanta shows and as Dilwyn says, his enthusiasm for the QL was very much in evidence.

He will be sorely missed

Re: Weak ribbon cable pins of MDV units

I tend to use a strip cut from an a chip socket, insert the cable pins into that strip and then insert the 2 strips into the QL motherboard.

Re: URGENT / IMPORTANT: BANDERSNATCH (MIA)

For the sake of completeness, I attach the zip file containing the only mode 8 version which has been found - unfortunately, it soon crashes and so you can only explore the first screen.

Hi Rich, I have checked the ROM images for CST Q Disc image, but I do not have version 1.19. Only CST QDisk v1.13 and v1.16 I will have another look at the eprom you sent me, but I think they will be just the same as the images files, on the QL Homepage. I have just received a bundle of stuff, and ...

Re: Microdrive boards

Because of shipping to / from the USA and potential charges etc, is there no source for replacement microdrive heads? I have plenty of ULAs if you need those rather than de-soldering them from an existing microdrive unit. I might have an interest in some of these , but when a microdrive is not worki...
