Re: QemuLator for Windows 3.3

Possibly a cheeky question - but is there any possibility to allow ROM scanning in the area from 0x010000/0x014000 and again at 0x01C000 - the 32K and 16K areas either side of hte QL I/O area. QDOS doesn't look for add-on ROMs there, but in the emulator it's possible to load ROM code in the $10000-...

Hi Ralf,

if you want to try it with all features enabled, I can send you a temporary code.

Re: QemuLator for Windows 3.3

Redirect CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+TAB and CTRL+ESC from Windows to the emulator. Woooooot woooot, thanks :-) Thank you for the suggestion and code! [ Compatible again with early versions of Windows 95. Wow, you are hardcore. I'm not even sure whether I should continue to support XP... :-o Probably not many W...

Re: QemuLator for Windows 3.3

That's the v3 changes compared to v2, a complete changelog for the Windows version is here (from the download page, click "More details", then "archived here"): http://www.terdina.net/ql/VersionHistory.html Probably I'll soon have another update with more TCP/IP functionality.

GST 68K cartridges preservation

It would be good to preserve microdrive images of the GST 68K cartridges, although their different format means that existing QL utilities won't work with them. Dilwyn's site has copies of the programs extracted from the cartridges, apparently created by Dex. I took a look at them and I was able to ...

The code you posted should work fine, just make sure you add the instructions to disable the interrupts at the beginning.

Re: Proper coding for Vsync or similar functionality

Thanks, I have found this great side too. Surprisingly the following code: trap #0 ori #%0000011100000000,sr helped to run the code above smoothly using Qemulator, however my problem with the real QL remains as it was (the sync does not work). Yes, this disables the interrupts. It's a good way to g...

Re: Handling of 8-colors mode

I don't think anybody from the QL design team is on this forum. Not sure why the bits for the same pixel span two bytes. The difference between mode 4 and mode 8 makes sense, though: 2 bits (and 2 bytes) represent the same amount of horizontal space in the scanline in either mode. Anyways, you CAN u...
