Re: How do you make a QL emulator?

Hi Steve, You wrote "And is Python that easy to use ? " I would say yes it is especially if you have used SuperBasic before. There are magazines with example code and loads of examples on the internet. My first and only python program, so far,I am using to connect a RS232 serial hat on a R...

Re: QLiberator decompiler

That is awsome work. Well done. I have noticed that the length of the compiled file is slightly longer than the QLIB_obj that I have which is 46158 bytes.

Re: Themes

Hi Per,

I understood that when I first tried the programs but must have somehow not supplied the file name correctly as I did not bother to link it to FI2 and did not EX from SBASIC.

BTW thanks for the pointers to the meaning of the contents of the theme file in your previous posts.

Re: Themes

Hi Tobias,

You are correct. I have tried it again and it works.
I was certain that I had supplied a file on the command line, but now that I have tried again it works so somehow the filename was not there previously or it was wrong.

Re: Themes

Hi Per, I have had a look at the Themes v5 package. I could not get the QLiberated executable SiThVi.obj to run. It crashed at line 620. Executing the SBasic source from within QD also crashed with the error Line 620 4 Invalid name. Looking at the line the statement ERT -12 is the problem. SBASIC wi...

Re: Themes

Hi Per,

Thanks for the pointer to that document, so if I now understand it correctly only the hex numbers in the saved theme files that have the first bit set are the 15 bit colours that are used for paper ink etc, while the other numbers are borders, stipples etc.

Thanks.

Themes

Hi It may be a question that has been asked before, but what I am wondering is which mode is used for the 16 bit colours in themes. Have looked through Dilwyn's site and QToday without finding an answer. Are they mode 32 or if not what are they? Why? I have been looking at updating EddIcon. Thanks f...

Re: Q68 Ethernet

Back in 2006 Jonathon Dent was working on a TCP/IP internet connection package. I had a version, as did others to test called soQL3_1.zip. At that time the only way to connect a hardware QL to the internet was through the serial port. Does anyone know what happened to that?
