Re: SMSQ SBASIC EX and break

Ah, yes: The poke to disable break under Qdos is poke_l 163900, 0. Unfortunately this also disables all other scheduler tasks :evil: (And that still doesnt remind me how I managed to switch break on again. There was a break_on/break_off toolkit out there once. Perhaps that was it?) Actually it disa...

Re: SMSQ SBASIC EX and break

In SMSQ/E just: poke !!$e4,%10000 Theres a similar poke for Qdos, IIRC. Of course, it applies system wide, not to any particular SBASIC, which is what I thought you were asking. Check out the systems variables. There are some more keys there concerning break. Thanks for mentioning SMSQ/E. Should be...

Re: SMSQ SBASIC EX and break

Does anybody know a way to disable or capture break/ctrl-spc in SBASIC yet? WHEN ERR ERR_NC doesn't work (unless I'm doing it wrong) but it could - and perhaps should be the way to do it, right? I've done it back in the '80s when I wrote procedures and functions for Basicode. This included a comman...

Re: Q68 Ethernet

We need hardware drivers for the Ethernet port first. Then, a TCP/IP stack (don't know if we could use anything from uQLx or SMSQmulator, they're probably just wrappers for the underlying OS). Looks like a pretty big project to me :o

Re: The sad end of QPC2 :-(

I reverted back to Wine 1.6.2 because it works with QPC2, but I do not use QPC2 much, as the QPC2 display is too small and there is no UQLX zoom option or SMSQmulator double resolution oiption. It works fine when I specify a double resolution in the configuration dialog under 'Window mode'. E.g. 64...

Re: The sad end of QPC2 :-(

Just tried it on Lubuntu 18.04 with Wine 3 installed and got the same blank screen (it shows the QPC2 window, but no contents). Also an error message from the command line: 0009:err:d3d:context_set_gl_context Failed to set pixel format 5 on device context 0x130056. Don't know if it's useful, it's pr...

I used to have such a memory extension from Micro Peripherals, it was only 256K so this must be a different one.

Computer One Monitor has a nice easter egg. Try this command: 'clone clone clone' and see what happens :D

Re: Hardware detectives for FrankenQL?

Okay, here the schematics as promised. This is the circuit diagram: circuit.png The 82S123 PROM is to be placed piggy-back on IC19, the 74LS157 on IC20. Address lines A16 to A19 from the CPU are fed to inputs 13 to 10 on the PROM, which acts as an address decoder. The outputs 1 and 2 from the PROM d...
