Re: Sam the Little Spaceman

MDI DRIVER cant mount sam.mdv on real ql The MDI driver can only mount it's own '_mdi' format images. If you want to use a Qlay, or Qemulator mdump '.mdv' image, you would need to convert it to MDI format first. There are commands in the MDI driver for doing this. I have never tried the MDI driver ...

Re: Newbie: Where to start to learn QL assembly language?

You could also try the Assembler Workbench http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/asm/talentaw22.zip . This is a combined assembler and machine code monitor. It does not have a lot of fancy features in the assembler, that the more professional ones do. It's the one I've used mainly. I was thinking about that, but...

Re: Help with Composite out

I don't know about in the States. But in the UK, back when Video Cassette Recorders first came out. You sometimes got pulling at the top of the picture, which sounds like what you are describing. It was caused by poor quality sync signals from the VCR's. Most TV's had a specific channel number ( usu...

Re: Eidersoft (M)ICE Eprom question.

I was wondering what the two empty IC sockets was for. Found a circuit diagram on the first German link above.

One's the address decoder, which has been bypassed. The other one looks like more inputs. More mouse buttons?

Re: puzzled cst qdisk interface

As your original EPROM is dead, Is there any chance that the 5 volt regulator may have been bypassed at some time. And then 9 volts got plugged in and blew things up?

Re: EMT4WIN for Windows

Incidentally, I've tried making images on a real QL and it seems to have a problem with line 1100 of the MakeImage_bas file (part of FDI). The line is: 1100 LOCal a$,s$,d$,fileName$,tracks,sides,sectPerTrack Syntax problem, I suspect there may be an easy fix? Edit: hang on, perhaps I need to LRESPR...

Re: EMT4WIN for Windows

If I remember correctly, EMT4WIN has problems with floppies that have too few physically formatted tracks. I had a few disks that had been formatted with less than 80 tracks. I think QPAC2 was one of them. If you do a DIR and the total sectors is less than 1440, then this is one of them. I think the...

Re: Fleet tactical command

Just out of curiosity, I seem to remember that there was a PC version of FTC. Which had the wire frame graphics block filled with colour. And could connect with the QL version.

Has any one got one of these? I did a quick internet search, but could not find a mention of it.
