Re: Talent Graphics Toolkit

Hi Rich, The scanning of the article was not good. So the OCR process did not do a good job. I have typed the first page of the listing. Is it worth putting this into Github or just type in the listing and make it availanle for download. I have downloaded most of Sinclair User from Archive.org. But ...

Re: Problem with Cumana Floppy drive

Hi, everybody. It’s been 5 years since my last post. Busy with beggining a medical research facility down here in Patagonia. Now trying to use my BBQL again. The thing is I want to resucitate my Cumana floppy disk drive with the cumana interface. Since it isn’t a pc drive I figured I could use a st...

Re: Cross-Chase

Fabrizio has said that if the cross-compilers work, then, so long as it supports conio.h or QL supports some of the standad terminal codes (e.g., 52) then a simple graphics version is just a matter of recompilation. HI RIch, The game looks OK, but if it relies on "conio.h", I think there ...

Re: CTL plug type

I have a large pile of the 631W connectors, which are currently being made up for the WiFi adaptor prototypes I'll be sending out soon. Only need to make a couple though, since there will likely be a fast serial card fairly soon. 631W is common as muck though :-D The 631W is the wrong connector, a ...

Re: CTL plug type

Hi, I think I bought the last of the 630W connectors, from Funisgroup last year. They are not a good company to deal with, their accounting and payments systems are rubbish, I had to pay by cheque. I was going to make some QL to DB9 Joystick cables, all in black. But I have other challenges at prese...

Re: Q68 Order Process

Hi Derek of Runcorn.............Looking for somebody who can supply a 68040 board that can plug into my 68000 socket, taking care of the dreaded 'bus-sizing' problem ! Regards, Anthony. Hi Anthony, 68000 to 68040, can not be done. Maybe the Vampire 2 A500 that plugs into the Amiga A500 CPU socket. ...

Re: Q68 Order Process

Evening Derek, Could you please put me down for a cased Q68 with the splitter as well? I hope the 2nd batch is coming on nicely and I look forward to hearing more when an update is available. All my best, Kenn Hi Kenn, Thank you for your enquiry, I will add you to the waiting list for the Q68. The ...
