Re: Testing for installed TURBO

Hi Lee, Looking at my boot file for SMSQmualtor/QPC2/Q-EMulator, I use this If clause: 1300 REMark Load Turbo Toolkit 1310 IF VER$=="HBA" 1320 LRESPR "WIN1_TURBO_SMS_CODE" 1330 ELSE 1340 LRESPR "WIN1_TURBO_TK_CODE" 1350 END IF Seems to work for QDOS and SMSQ/E. But I gu...

Re: Testing for installed TURBO

Hi, There is a keyword: TK_VER$, but only returns the version of Turbo Toolkit, which is the same for the SMS and QDOS versions. A simple way would be to add "SMS" in the version number. Which would mean a new version of Turbo Toolkit. The SMS version calls the SMSQ/E extended traps, where...

Re: Issue 8 and WiFi

The card would run the TCP stack for you. You access it like a Hayes modem, tell it what IP you want to connect to, etc. It supports encryption for you too, and it would be programmable in its own right to extend its functionality.

Re: Sinclair QL - blank screen.... HeLp!

Hi Steven, The order to test replace is hard, as the defective chip could be any of them. If you can remove the chips without damaging them they can be tested on a IC Tester. I have a couple of Eprom programmers with IC Chip testing facilities incorporated. Although there are in-situ IC testers that...

Re: Sinclair QL - blank screen.... HeLp!

Hi, If you are getting a black screen, the QL is not getting to the ram test, failure on Ram Tests is usually a white screen. If you have tested all the plug-in chips then you may have a fault on one or more logic chips. I had a similar fault many years ago, it took me a 2 hours with a logic probe t...

Re: QL Snapshots

Hi, I hope a software routine could could achieve this, but most of the QL games I have tried to disassemble in the hope that they could modified to run on a modern QL system, run in Supervisor Mode and probably have the Interrupts disabled. So the multi-tasking is stopped, how would the monitor rou...
