Re: QLiberator decompiler

I suspect that some of the GO TO's are to do with REPeat loops. REPeat loops are converted into GO TO's along with the NEXT and EXIT's .If you see a variable assignment like 'var0080=0', and var0080 does not seem to be used again. Then it's likely, the start of a REPeat loop. Although a REPeat var ...

Re: VGA sync loss with Q68

A detail in the manual of the KDL-26S5500 looks a little suspicious: While they say "VESA" for other resolutions, they say "VESA Guidelines" for 1024x768 @ 60 Hz. So they seem to distinguish something with regard to the standard, not telling what. A wild guess would be that TV m...

Re: VGA sync loss with Q68

Hi Bob, Do you have the TV model number. The Q68 manual says the VGA output is a standard VESA 1024x768 @ 60Hz. Maybe the Sony TV is not totally standard. Maybe you could try a VGA to HDMI converter, which I have attachef to 19" HDMI TV. I do have 65" LG TV with VGA input, I will test a W...

VGA sync loss with Q68

I got hold of a flat screen 1080i Sony TV with a VGA input that I tried my Q68 on. But this frequently gives a "no sync" message for 5 to 10 seconds before I get my screen back. The TV expects 1024x768 @60Hz which is what I believe the Q68 does. A "real" PC on that VGA input, set...

Re: Starting programming.....

Hi. I would like to create a personal software to manage a club - a software that allows the storage and search of the members' data and related payments, as well as the club management. A test app, not a production app, only to try my SBASIC abilities. Both DATAdesign and DBAS can be programmed in...

Hi. Which is the best SBASIC setup in order to start programming a QL custom Database application ? Ex. Pointer Enviroment, Compiler, Toolkit, DBAS (?), Suqcess (?), DB API, ...

Flashback was supplied by Sector Software, requests have made to David Batty, to relase Flashback as freeware. When this happens, the bugs in the software can fixed.

Many thanks Derek and other persons involved in locating this bug.
I will have to avoid using FB on my Q68 for now.

Re: FlashbackSE misbehaving on Q68

Is this the FlashbackSE upgrade which I offer (v2.03) - I did some changes to the display handling to overcome issues with the pointer environment - it could be that this version would fix the issue on the Q68 ( I seem to recall seeing something similar, but it was many years ago). That said, it is...

FlashbackSE misbehaving on Q68

Has anyone ever tested FlashbackSE on a Q68? Starting it in other resolutions than the standard 512x256 results in a screen showing the Q68 Boot Menu as found in the default WIN of my Q68 but no choice can be made, no keys are acted upon. A reset is needed. Has this Boot screen been preserved somewh...
