Cumana Floppy Interface and Toolkit

Hello, Dusting off and using a Cumana floppy interface (v1.46 from 1984) with my QL, it looks as if the interface auto starts a version of Toolkit (QJUMP?) that does not handle sub-directories or RAM disks. Typing TK2_EXT results in a bad command statement. Question: can I simply load TK226 from a f...

Odd dual expansion adapter for QL

about 5 years ago, I purchased a weird looking expansion adapter for the QL that slots into the traditional expansion port and offers two, side-by-side slots for QL compatible expansion options. After some disassembly, reassembly and figuring out the right kind of power supply required to maintain s...

Re: QL-SD

Any reason to think these will not be compatible with the JSU ROM/US Sinclair? Assuming they wii be compatible, I'm on board to buy the external version when it becomes available. Tom

SLUG values and SGC

Hello, I'm trying to get Microdeals QL Flight simulator to run with a SGC. RES_128 is required. Ok. Everytime I roll down the runaway, I reach the far end of the field before I can pull back on the yoke. I've tried SLUG at 40 and 150 with no measurable improvement. Any recommendations other than pul...

Re: Flightdeck program

I believe my Philips HDMI LCDTV can run in 50hz mode. I have a spare QL (UK/Euro version) for parts but it worked when purchased 5 years ago. Possibly, if hooked up to my US QL PSU, and a SCART I could run the software without issue, right?

Re: Flightdeck program

I was unable to get the demo version to run on Q-Emulator. The issue is the EXEC_W command not finding Flight_obj which is definitely is on the virtual drive (flight.obj). I did test Ekotek Simulator with the JSU ROM and it worked great. I realize that Ekotek SIm and the Flight Deck are of different...

Re: Flightdeck program

I just sent Rich the screenshot. So, if I'm understanding this correctly, not all commercial QL programs were coded to deal with both PAL and NTSC environments and it's possible that is the issue I am seeing here. Might there be anyway through SCART and HDMI TV settings that I can deal with this? Th...

Flightdeck program

Hello, I'm working my way through a number of great "old" programs for the QL, including the 1.07 version of Flightdeck. I'm trying to use it on a US QL with a SGC and original ROMs running off a floppy. The pre-simulation settings screen loads and functions as it should. When I enter the ...
