Re: uQLx 2018a

Hi, I have still no luck with Tyche on sqlux, the emulator gives a segmentation error on start up, where other roms all work very nicely. It wont work unless someone re-codes it to be like QDOS. uQlx replaces large chunks of the ROM in fixed locations with its own internal logic. If those locations...

Re: VDrive ZX or QL?

Erm, you can as long as you have at least one VDrive QL then the VDrive ZX will daisy chain off that.

Re: uQLx 2018a

If your using uQlx make sure you only use the 32bit version. I discovered a bug that bites the 64bit systems much more often than the 32bit systems. https://github.com/SinclairQL/sQLux/commit/9226116c8c57885515990df1a2adf6ac0b064842 Bonus points to the person who feels like backporting that to uQlx!

Re: uQLx 2018a

As I suspected with Tyche its crashing when it tries to patch the ROM, uQlx ROM patching is as you can see fairly delicate! static void PatchKeyTrans(void) { KEYTRANS_CMD_ADDR=RL((Ptr)theROM+0xbff2); KEYTRANS_OCODE=RW((uw16*)((Ptr)theROM+KEYTRANS_CMD_ADDR)); WW(((uw16*)((Ptr)theROM+KEYTRANS_CMD_ADDR...

Re: Tandata Modem BT plug to RJ11

Hi, I'm trying to make a BT to RJ11 (Italian telephone) adapter for Tandata Q MOD modem. I'm not experienced about modem signals, and unfortunately the information from the Internet are not always clear and sometimes contradictory. The adapter I quickly made does not seem to work... I attach here b...

Re: How to run Prospero Fortran on Qemulator version 3.3

The sQLux uses an sqlux.ini file in the directory the executable starts, instead of the traditional .uqlxrc file. But the config file can be drfined in the command line or icon properties. Actually it uses that as the highest preference, if you remove sqlux.ini from directory and don't have a .sqlu...

Re: Can we learn from Amiga OS?

C compilers - certainly in the microcontroller world - can produce assembler as output, so that any critical timing loops can be tweaked. Optimising compilers usually produce quite efficient code, so there is no outright reason why c could not be used. The hard task would be rewriting all the routi...

Re: uQLx 2018a

Hmmm... I've just installed uQLX under windows 10 Unix susystem and for some reason every other time I try to access a win_ drive (backed by a .win file) I get 'Not Found'. So it'll work once, then fail, then work, then fail, then work. Doesn't seem to matter what the command is (dir, copy, lbytes,...

I wonder if this could be QL related purchase?
