Re: Running game "Werner" under uQLx

QEmulator has added (all in good faith, I suppose) another level of complexity to the topic of QL file headers. When you copy a QL executable to a non-QDOS file system, the 64-byte header that belongs to the file is normally lost. Daniele has devised a scheme that packs the header in front of the ac...

Well, if you want the boot to happen within reasonable time, yes. QubIDE retries connecting to a disk for about a minute, if I recall right. But the boot should continue normally after that time.

Re: Assembly Language eComic - Issue 7 now available

I've fixed a small bug in the code submitted by Tobias in Issue 7. There was a use of A7 in a register list that should have stopped at A6. (That's the sort of mistakes I make!) Wolfgang spotted it and let me know. I guess whatever you (I) do, there's always that last error you (I) miss ;) Sorry fo...

Re: Formatting a QXL.WIN file

Then why not simply transfer the SD card to a PC running QPC and do the renaming there?

Re: Formatting a QXL.WIN file

No need to reformat.

Download Per Witte's QWirc - You can change disk labels on the fly there (Right-click on the label).

Can be found on Marcel's QPC demo disk for QPC2, if I remember correctly.

Re: QL Net server to back-up Spectrum files?

At the last German meeting in Mahlerts we on-the-fly-connected a QLAN-enabled Q68 and a Spectrum with Interface 1. It seemed to work relatively flawlessly. Transfer back and forth was fine.

Re: Assembler for the ql

By far the best and most professional assembler for the QL in my opinion is the GST/Quanta Macro assembler , closely followed by George Gwilt's GWAss (Which needs a CPU >= 68020 to work, so you should have an SGC, QPC, or Q40, for example) It comes with an extensive manual, editor and linker.

Re: ADVENTURE CREATION TOOL Manual

There's a Perfection demo disk on Dilwyn's site that contains a runnable exe file.

Maybe that can help?

Re: Minerva question

Hi Martin, Minerva prints strings (and most other arguments as strings (see the sstrg routine in print_asm). It does, however, print characters like newlines and tabs, as well as separating spaces using io_sbyte (through the print_1 routine in print_asm). PRINT "Hello"; Should actually onl...
