Re: QBase new version

Hi Daniel, I have downloaded your updates to QBase. It is good that you are continuing development of the software. I must say that I thought the early version of QBase were really good, I included this on the software package supplied with the Q60, in 2002. It does work well on the Q68, I usually ...

Re: Looking for Metacomco Languages

Hi,

It could be seriously interesting to take a look at their BCPL compiler.

Imagine having BCPL on your CV...

Re: New Minerva ROMs for Q68

The best solution for this would be to add Q68 PS/2 mouse support to the PE. Since the mouse initialization is already handled by the Q68 loader, that shouldn't be extremely difficult, but I have no idea if the PE sources are available. Code to look at can be found in the SMSQ/E sources under: smsq...

Re: QBase new version

Hi all, I've been going through one of my periodic periods of renewed interest in the QL, and this has resulted in a new version of Qbase. This is version 1.02. The only real difference is the I fixed a bug in the SELECT dialogue that was basically stopping it from working. It does now work, but it'...

Re: New Minerva ROMs for Q68

Hi all,

I've been playing with this - it runs very well :)

I was wondering whether there is any way to get the mouse working with it under the pointer environment?

Any other native hardware to try? SGC?


No, the Q68 is the first hardware "QL" that I've owned since I had a real QL a very long time ago. Since then I've only used software emulations.

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

The only real obstacle was getting the FAT partition right. Just for completeness: The FAT16 partition, which Derek apparently has added, is not required for a standard Q68 card. A single partition FAT32 formatted card is fine. The manual contains information on suitable software to create it. Yes,...

Re: Q68 and Easymenu

Hi Daniel, Easyptr 4 will probably default to run in a Hi-Colour mode. Have you tried the Q68 Hi-Colour modes. DISP_MODE 6 512 x 384 is the fastest Hi-Colour mode. I do not have any Q68 to try this out... all sold. If there is a problem with the Q68 SMSQ/E, send tge destails of the problem to me vi...
