Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

The HP keyboard works OK on my PC, so may be too much power is drawn by the old keys? Not if your 5V power supply is stabilized and delivers at least 1A as recommended. This is the first time I ever hear about a non-working keyboard. Especially that mouse was affected is weird - both ports are comp...

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

I am still having issues to find any mouse working with splitter supplied. Initially I thought it is because I have used USB to ps/2 adapter, but yesterday I tested setup with keyboard and mouse both having cord with PS/2 connector. If mouse is connected, Q68 halts at ROM loader (I guess by trying ...

Re: Mawdraw problem (easyptr4)

I'm trying to do something different, you print the string after clicking, I need to present a list in which each element is divided into several lines, to scroll through this list and eventually select an element Giorgio This is just a proof of concept.

Re: Testing Tetroid backplane and GC

I've attached SerMouse instructions lifted from my SMSQ/E manual. Unfortunately, I don't have a printed manual for SerMouse 3.04 to know how appropriate this version is - could someone compare them? Hi Dilwyn, I have checked the pdf against my SMSQ/E manual revision 7, which is the last printed ver...

Re: $$external problem

The QLIB_RUN_bas and QLibrun_bas programs are on older SMSQ/E disks from Jochen Merz, where they were mentioned in his printed SMSQ/E manuals. I don't know the copyright situation of those programs, so I don't really want to post them on here until I know. Maybe Wolfgang Lenerz can be persuaded to ...

You can get it at https://qdosmsq.dunbar-it.co.uk/downloads/QLWiki/QLWikiUpdating.pdf. Have fun, and I look forward to lots more chang...

Re: QL Graphics

Sprites can relatively easily be converted, however, the padding to an even long word at the end of each line is a bit of a nuisance, and is one of the reasons why I feel the sprite format is not the ideal, de facto standards for general image files. Padding makes sense for sprites, which need to b...
