Re: QL red and green vertical stripes at startup

just out of interest, which ic's did you swap to the other machine?

Did you do just one at a time, or take them all across ?

Re: QL red and green vertical stripes at startup

Hi Dave, Yes if you've tried putting the ZX8301 chip in another QL and it's working in that one, then more than likely it's an issue with either the DRAM chips or the 3 TTL support IC's - a bus transceiver and 2 multiplexers. You should check for any obvious issues on the PCB, like foriegn objects s...

Minerva Autostart defeat?

As per the title really, is there a way to defeat the auto start on Minerva and leave it on the ROM scan F1/F2/F3/F4 page without auto starting?

I couldn't find anything in the manual, and there wasn't anything obvious in the source.

Interesting that has a second set of pads just behind the 64 way edge connector - was that for a possible extension?

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

And coming back to the original question - which was about creating QLWA file systems on an SD card - it shouldn't be necessary to install an emulator - free or otherwise to achieve that. It isn't. You were given some hints above you can do everything from Q68 directly, without having to refer to a...

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

You gotta love someone who suggests you are somehow weird or off the mark for making a choice different to yours... My credentials are that Ive used and/or tested almost all the various emulators, as well as many (if not most) of the diverse hardware platforms. As a result I presented (some of) my ...

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

of course someone may have chosen a different emulator - such as Qemulator, which although it can read the qxl.win type files, is not able to create them. I happen to like this emulator, but sadly for this particular application of creating specific files on the SD card, it was not able to help.
