Re: QPC2 and MAc air M1

So I just checked and I had QPC2 working on my M1 Mac, but my license to Crossover has now expired so I cannot post a screenshot.

So you can do it, but you need to spend an extra amount of money as Crossover is not free!

Rosetta does not work for 32bit x86 code. Crossover from codeweavers will run 32bit windows programs.

Vaccine only available to over 70s though, I have a while to go to reach that status!

Re: QPC2v5.01 release

When Windows runs/ran on mutiicore CPUs, core 0 did all the I/O. If core1 needed input, it had to get core 0 to stop what it was doing, do the input and then continue again. This might slow things down. That might have been true in the 90s ;) Yeah, with multi socket configurations there is no guara...

Re: QPC2v5.01 release

I have to say that I think Windows 10 is awful. It does not even look nice and to add spice to the mix, the Panda has no cooling and thus runs so hot that the the Z8350 has to be throttled to 0.77 Ghz. See pic below:- Cant really blame Win10 for bad hardware design :-) Pi also suffers from this and...

Re: QPC2v5.01 release

I have just gone forth and rejoiced. I bought a LattePanda recently thinking that I might use it to make a QPC-in-keyboard computer. The Panda is a tiny (not fpga) windows 10 PCB:- https://www.lattepanda.com/products/1.html. LattePand.jpg I downloaded and extracted the QPC zip file. I then created ...

Re: sQLux Foibles

Interesting question is on a BBQL are the pixels always square? (also this goes for the clones). No they are not. In 512x256 QL MODE 4, I double horizontally and triple vertically for VESA standard 1024x768 on 4:3 monitor. That roughly provides the QL aspect ratio seen on CRT historically. Thanks I...
