Re: Graphics program for SMSQ/E

OK, I didn't know it's already contained in QL/E, so I actually managed to track down the author of QDesign, Jörg Schiemann, who has graciously agreed to make it freely available. I have added the latest version v4.04 to my QPCDemo.win and also attached a ZIP here. Unfortunately the source code for ...

Re: Graphics program for SMSQ/E

QDesign was pretty cool back then, a bit like Paint on Windows. But it was pre-GD2 so has some problems with more resolution and high colour. Could be an interesting target for decompilation though.

Re: Re QL SD ROM Update Please

Yes, that is rather trivial, but *I* don't need to procure the chips, the (turnkey) manufacturer has to and they usually don't go to eBay. As I said, I haven't tried to get a quote recently, no idea what rate they will come up with. Maybe I have more time over the holiday.

Re: QPC2 and MAc air M1

I used Black Friday to order both a Macbook Air (for my wife) and a MacMini server (to replace my 2009 model that has been working 24/7 for 12 years, so it's due for a replacement). So eventually I'll see what I can do.

Re: Re QL SD ROM Update Please

LC4064 is dead to me anyway because the development tools now costs 600 USD per year. I use a Xilinx chip in the new version (also I'd need a LC4128 in this case).

Re: Re QL SD ROM Update Please

I'm really sorry that there is no progress, only 5 QL-SD ROMs exist at the moment, of which 2 have been sent out and 3 are still with me. The 10 QL-SDs mentioned are internal ones, also all still with me, because I cannot send them out by eMail and everything else is just too annoying at the moment....

Re: IOP.OUTL Bug?

If the key in D2 is set to 1 then the contents of the window will be preserved, allowing applications to move a window with one call to IOP.OUTL: note that the size must stay the same for this to work properly! But it's somewhat obvious that you can't ask the system to preserve window contents that...

Re: IOP.OUTL Bug?

I have no idea what's written in the manual, I've deducted this from the source code. Not sure if that tells you more about me or about the state of the manual... ;-)

Re: IOP.OUTL Bug?

"Preserve windows contents" means "move the window, including its contents". That can only be done on a window that is already "well behaved", i.e. had a successful outline call done on it (with D2 = 0).
