Re: Q68 wifi dongle updates...

Ok, thanks.

I was wondering if you needed all the firmware doing or just the bit you explained above.


Cheers,
Norm.

Re: Q68 wifi dongle updates...

Just out of curiosity Dave, did you get any volunteers to help write the firmware?

Re: SD_SETPA failes on SMSQ with Invalid Parameter

Hi Jan,

I didn't think it looked right for a channel id, but couldn't think why it troubled me.

Re: SD_SETPA failes on SMSQ with Invalid Parameter

Well, after a few hours hard work, i finally debugged the whole thing. I had one nasty where it ran for ages then just stopped. Same place each time. I couldn't find out why, and tracing it would have taken until the end of time! In the end, I resorted to a utility I wrote years ago for Quanta's &qu...

Re: SD_SETPA failes on SMSQ with Invalid Parameter

Hi Tobias, I suppose it doesn't help if I'll tell you "this should work".... By "should" do you mean "should work if and when you put the pointer to the scrdef in A0 and not in A1 and call trap #2 to open it rather than trap #1? :D What could upset the QL, however, is your &...

MT_CJOB, thanks Per. It's funny how you can never spot these things until someone else sees it as so bloody obvious!".

I am, much appreciative - thanks.

Re: SD_SETPA failes on SMSQ with Invalid Parameter

You always call "do_trap1" instead of "do_trap3". No idea how you get any channel this way (should be trap#2)? Oh for f*ck sake!!!! :shock: :shock: :shock: :roll: :? :? 8-) WTF was I doing? Thanks very much Marcel, I looked and looked and checked Pennell and Dickens and still di...

SD_SETPA failes on SMSQ with Invalid Parameter

Morning All, I'm working on some code for the next (exciting) issue of the randomly produced Assembly Language eComic and I've come across a bit of a weird thing happening. SD_SETPA is failing to set green paper. Here's the offending code: size_x equ 512 ; Pixels across (width) size_y equ 256 ; Pixe...

Re: Correct Maths Stack usage (CHRIX/RESRI)

Thanks Marcel, that worked perfectly. Trap #15 once again brings QMON to the fore. I added a TRAP #15 to DJToolkit's DJTK_VER$ function. This takes no parameters and returns a 4 character string, requiring 6 bytes on the stack. PRINT DJTK_VER$ QMON was activated. A1 was set to zero. PRINT 'xxxx' &am...
