Re: Guide on playing Infocom and Inform games on the QL

I quoted over 900 infocom games, but I gave removed the games that will not run on the QL implementation of infocom. Still lots of games to play.

I have written a basic programme to select the game or there is a Qmenu game selector.

Which is the best?

Re: Talent Graphics Toolkit

Hi,

I will upload each page as I type them in.

As Rich says typying in programmes is a good way of learning the language.

Superbasic and Sbasic are really good implementations of the Basic language.

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: 68060 based QL system?

Let's not get hung up on just how difficult an ARM port would be - it's off topic and hijacking the intent of the thread. I believe you started this about the porting SMSQ/E or SBASIC to ARM. Which I like ARM hardware, but the porting to the Operating System, would be hard and a little "RISCy&...

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...
