Re: Hello

Howdy, I guess I didn't say (out-right) that my QXL is installed in a machine, so I'm good. My main "problem" was that some time ago I managed to lose the install disk but I had compensated by keeping a copy of the software on several backup drives - and all is still well with my setup - e...

Re: QXL to QL emu transfer

Hiya Derek - we meet again ! :mrgreen: So, how "special" is this cable? Will one wired to work with PCAnywhere - a remote control program - work the same as the cable you are describing? As far as I know, the wires are set up so that they are "crossed" like a null modem cable, so...

Re: End of unzip woes?

Okay, this definitely helps - thank you ! :)

I'm still taking notes ... and I should have this "down" soon.

This will definitely give me something to work on ...

Either way, if all goes well with those "disk images", I'll have good news to report. :mrgreen:

Re: End of unzip woes?

Hiya Derek, So, would the converse be true? If I wanted to use low density, I specify "L" (instead of "H") in the 2 commands? I just want to be sure, although, I have the smsqe.exe (also have one that adds VGA to the name) I want to move carefully, since I've been away for quite ...

Re: End of unzip woes?

Okay, question:

How do I tell my QXL to format a 720K disk rather than a 1.44mb one?

[ I have some 720k disks, but they are MS-DOS formatted ]

- It keeps trying to format a DD floppy as a 144 mb and fails ...

If I can test both images, then you have two more tests done. :)

QXL to QL emu transfer

I'm wondering: ... if there's any way to use the serial or printer ports on a PC to transfer software from my QXL PC (P3) to my Thinkpad or Toshiba running QLay in DOS ... ? Can "we" get a DOS QL emulator (QLay) "talking" to a QXL running SMSQ directly thru the serial ports of th...

Re: Microdrive Emulator

QLay doesn't appear to "like" either of those image files, and I had decided to make one "mdv" with some of my own programs, using a "copied and Q-emulator formatted" (Quill) mdv file, but QLay didn't work with it, either. :( Trying to get a DIR of the "mdv" e...

Re: Deleting directories in SMS.....

Hiya Mr. Swenson, I think someplace I saw a reference to a "bin" file that was a "make_dir" extension. I think my main problem is ... do I have Toolkit II on my SMSQ /E ? I suppose I could try a WCOPY command and if it fails then I know I don't have it. Apart from that - it's a&q...
