Re: Minerva Autostart defeat?

As per the title really, is there a way to defeat the auto start on Minerva and leave it on the ROM scan F1/F2/F3/F4 page without auto starting? I couldn't find anything in the manual, and there wasn't anything obvious in the source. The code is in sb/start.asm at the read_key label. You need to se...

Re: SMSQ/E sources - mirror git repository

The main problem would be the possible creation of SMSQ/E forks while there is still an 'official' version being maintained by Wolfgang. It's not abandonware like many other QL projects and Wolfgang could get unjustified support calls for forked versions. I'm in more or less the same position with t...

Re: Q68 - setting up a BBQL style environment

The command to map a WIN device to a QLWA file on the Q68 is WIN_DRIVE <drive nr>,<SDcard nr>,<QLWA file> so WIN_DRIVE 8,1,Q68_SMSQ.WIN will get you access to the SMSQ system drive on WIN8. Then, do a LRESPR win8_config_menu_rext_english and EX win8_config_menuconfig and you can configure the Q68_SM...

Re: Adjusting the QNET timings on a QXL2

The pointer to the linkage block can be found using PEEK_L(base_of_channel_definition_block+4). The pointers to the I/O, open and close routines are then at offset 4, 8 and 12 respectively. But when calling these routines register A3 is set to point 24 bytes below this, to allow for linked lists for...

Re: Status of QMON

I noticed that there is a copy of QMON in the QLE 3.17 distribution, in the SYS subdirectory. However this appears to be corrupted, it crashes every time I try to run it even on BBQLs.

Re: How to start programming with assembly?

QL2K include TK2.ROM will try Will read Qmac manual, I think aligning directive must exist. This was one of the bugs fixed in Qmac compared to the original GST assembler. A DS.W 1 at the end had no effect and in fact it could produce binaries with odd length - embarrassing when you tried to EXEC th...

Re: How to start programming with assembly?

The standard header is not really required - but recommended if you want your program to be identified by job control utilities such as in TK2. He has forgotten the trap #1 (mt.inf) after the first clr.l d0. But that should not cause a crash - only garbage as QDOS version. The real problem is that i...

Re: System Variables - what are the rules...

so that begs the question, why are there 2 pointers in the system variables for serial receive queues for ser1 and ser2? These are for the internal SER ports, and are handled by the internal interface and transmit interrupt handler. This handler also expects the transmit queues to start at fixed of...

Re: SOS

At a guess, the monitor has blown the 8301 or 8302 - can you try it on a TV output just to see what image you are getting? If the monitor is connected via composite video, there is no direct connection to the 8301. He could try connecting the monitor to the monochrome signal to rule out a defect 13...
