Re: MKpart_exe for Q40 & Q60

Hi Marcel, Or just get a cheap EPROM programmer like a TL866II and be done with it Had a look at the other thread "Q40 & Q60 Roms" it looks like hard work and I think I will leave EPROM programming for the experts. Hi Derek, yes you are correct my Q60 does have smsq/e 2.98p in the rom....

Re: MKpart_exe for Q40 & Q60

Hi Marcel, You are correct, the latest SMSQ/E for Q40 now also supports QLWA ("QXL.WIN") container files on FAT32 discs, but the Q60 initially boots from a rommed version of smsq/e which I think in the case of my Q60 is 2.95 or thereabouts, so no "QXL.WIN" container support on fi...

Re: MKpart_exe for Q40 & Q60

Hi Derek, Thanks for the reply. I was never able to get shoestring linux up and running on my Q60. I have had a RPi for a few years now and thought to use it to partition the disk with atarifdisk, but alas atarifdisk is obsolete software on the RPi linux side and not supported. The simplest way to g...

MKpart_exe for Q40 & Q60

Having decided to give my Q60 a spruce up by transfering it from the original now ageing beige box to something smarter in black I also decided to replace the ageing noisy hard drives with something quieter. I got a pair of 'small' 120GB solid state SATA 3 disks with IDE to SATA bridge boards. The l...

Re: QL Sprite Editor

Hi Derek, I have found that with changes that, I guess Marcel Kilgus has made to smsq/e, mode 32 sprites display just fine on mode 33 screens, and possible Aurora mode which essentially mode 32 sprites a universal format except for mode 4 of course. I have been working on an update to EddIcon and wh...

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.
