Re: Scaling an entire screen

This could make an ideal task for QLiberator. The new commands could be compiled as QLIB Externals, to be LRESPRd in the boot file. Also, In the boot file, the original SuperBASIC commands could be redirected to use the new ones, using something like ... 100 DEFine PROCedure redirect(a$, b$) 110 LO...

Re: Expanding the QL's address space beyond 1M (+primer on building QL compatible machines)

The I/O subsystem: 8302 ULA and IPC ... I remember having trouble using Albin Hessler's serial mouse together with a printer on my QL issue 6. His suggestion was to cut the connection between pins 6 of Ser1 & Ser2 and add an extra 680 Ohm (R10) from pin 6 of Ser2 to the 12V line. This prevented...

Re: QXL.WIN (the domain name).

Hi Chr$, Congratulations on your new site. I am sure Tony Firshman is happy to get a mention on there but being put under the label of "QL Games & Software" is not what he expected. He was an important hardware man for the QL with Hermes, SuperHermes, ROMdisq etc. and of course repairi...

This addresses the limit on the number of assembler files that can be locally included.
...This effectively makes the number of files that can be included unlimited.

Unlimited, I like that. Thanks.

Re: QLiberator v3.42

I have not yet used any of the Qlib 3.37+ versions but reading the Readme file up to 3.42 no mention is made of the $$asmb= limits and I cannot remember if it has been addressed before. Only 8 code files can be added this way at compile time. Is it possible to extend this limit in 3.43? BSJR I've t...

Re: QL Art

Comparing the two images there appear five lines of rubbish at the start minus an offset of 32 pixels. I guess some header info got translated as well, so conversion should start at +5x256 -32 pixels, in bytes for the Tiff. That's what I'd assumed - but then I'd also assumed that the four values in...

Re: QLiberator v3.42

Agreed :) Have you tried it with RPM? I always thought (and think) that QLib needs the BP.INIT of every embedded MC-extension. But what, if they are put one after another, link with RPM or BOOT_MAKE? Hmm, youre right. RPM just chains all the toolkits together and adds code to jump to the bi_inipr o...
