Re: OPL2 (3 ?) sound for your QL through parallel port

Received message from seller : Hi Zarchos, Thanks, and that would be great ! Have a look at this repository : https://github.com/pdewacht/adlipt for all code. good luck ! Serge I have already downloaded the C source code for the driver. As I said, the code is x86 specific. But could be converted to...

Re: OPL2 (3 ?) sound for your QL through parallel port

It uses a 6502 to Z80 emulator. Is there a 6502 to 68008 emulator available on the QL ? In the old days, in 1990s, I was writing a include file for QMAC assembler that would assemble 6502 OP Codes. I never really finished it. I was wondering recently, if a Turbo compiled 6502 emulator would be as f...

Re: OPL2 (3 ?) sound for your QL through parallel port

HI, I have ordered the OPL2LPT kit. Should be able to solder this no problems at all. I have a few Ataris: TT-030, Mega STE with QVME, Mega ST, STFM, but would use it on a Q60. I have downloaded the source code for the ADLIB driver, which is written in C with x86 assembler instructions. I suppose th...

Re: Installing SMSQ/E

I had a quick try yesterday. There is barely enough memory to load it into. And when you CALL it, Qemulator throws up an error message. So if SMSQ/E needs to write to the ROM area. Does that mean that you cannot run SMSQ/E on a standard QL. Only on Gold cards? HI Martin, There is a version of SMSQ/...

Re: OPL2 (3 ?) sound for your QL through parallel port

Hi Xavier, I watched the video, the sound card sounds really good. But there are only the Q40/60, Supergold Card with direct parallel ports. QPC2 can access the PC LPT port, so if the driver is set up correctly may work. The Supergold card parallel port is not bi-directional, but that sound not be a...

Re: TerribleFire accelerator for the QL accelerator card

According to the Aurora manual: • The system might wait slightly longer at startup (this is mostly undetectable) trying to find the microdrives, which have become history. So although it still used the ZX8302 chip, it didn't have any connectors for the Microdrives. Hi, I forgot about that feature. ...

Re: TerribleFire accelerator for the QL accelerator card

Aurora can't live without either a GC or SGC as CPU/memory board and is basically a "combined Super-I/O and Graphics Card for GC or SGC". Wording to-the-point ;) Off-topic again, but do you remember if the Aurora still supported microdrives? Hi, The Aurora has no microdrive connections on...

Re: TerribleFire accelerator for the QL accelerator card

The evolution of GC and SGC was the Aurora. What you may could aim to do is an Aurora plus? Even standard Aurora available would be nice to have. While I find the idea of an Aurora+ with SGC+ fun (I'd buy it, but not develop myself) it comes quite close to an integrated system like the Q68. So care...

Re: Wanted, CST Q-488 GP-IB interface for Sinclair QL

Hi François,

I have a CST Q-488 GP-IB interface, the software is in rom. I scanned a photocopy of the manual and is available at:

http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/docs/manuals/Q4 ... CE_OCR.pdf

I will see if the interface works and get back to you.
