Re: External Microdrives work on QL

I've actually done it and it worked. Only problem was it had to be placed the wrong way around :D

Re: Q68 Software SD Card

It would be very interesting to know how many users actually cherish the second slot! Also, if the desicion for full size SD cards was the right one. I use it when booting images of Minerva on a test SD. This way I can access the files on the 'production' SD card in slot 2 without having to copy th...

Re: Running processes and available memory ?

Hi Tobias ...ram disks grow dynamically with the amount of files you put there... That's it ! The more I write files on ram disks, the less RAM remains that explains why I eventually run out of memory. I always thought the RAM disc size was pre-allocated. Actually you can create a RAM disk of fixed...

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...
