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).

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
