Re: Mice and mouse queues...

Thanks everyone, so good to see all this development work still going on for QL and related systems. Yes, I agree Dylwin. Having been out of action for a few months after a fall at home (I can't sit at a computer for long because of the pain), it's great to be able to follow the developments on the...

ON GOTO

I'm converting a program written in a Microsoft Basic. It includes a lot of ON x GOTO statements, with a wide range of number values for 'x' (an adventure game, where the ON statements are used to jump to verb/noun/place codes). Does anyone know if there is a limit on the number of line number param...

Re: SLUG values and SGC

I should have noted that as Slowgold requires installation of a little bit of code, it may interfere with the amount of free memory, and possibly memory layout, after a RES_128. In theory, if the flight simulator has position-dependent code, it may have a bearing. Another possibility may be to use Q...

Re: SLUG values and SGC

Hello, I'm trying to get Microdeals QL Flight simulator to run with a SGC. RES_128 is required. Ok. Everytime I roll down the runaway, I reach the far end of the field before I can pull back on the yoke. I've tried SLUG at 40 and 150 with no measurable improvement. Any recommendations other than pu...

Re: Transform, live right now.

Thank you for making the Transform titles available. To help with the list, here's a scan of the last full page advert I could find from QL World, listing their software titles. I'm afraid I don't know if they are all from Transform. Some may be third party. transform.jpg What date was that issue (...

I suspect Dilwyn might have something to say about that...

And "one languages"?

Re: New QLiberator v3.37

Martin, thank you ever so much for all the hard work you've put into the decompilers, and to EmmBee for producing the new QLiberator. I tend to lurk here rather than participate, but during the current situation I am using my QL and QPC2 quite a lot to keep myself occupied at home. The work you and ...

Re: Covid19

Thank you for that vanpeebles. It is a good idea during this situation to encourage us to keep in touch. I'm looking forward to trying out the chat program to get back to pestering you again sometime. We had a bit of a scare recently, thinking we'd been in touch with someone who was displaying sympt...
