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.

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

qxltools doesn't seem to work on my system - These tools used to work in the XP / 2000, but don't seem to like Windows 7 or above. Perhaps it's time to run a virtual box and a legacy windows platform just to be able to use some of these.

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

The 4Gb SDHC cards are actually more than you can buy 16's for when I looked on Amazon / ebay - for known good brands. My guess is these are driven by the portable device market and cameras, so higher storage capacity cards are in greater demand and consequently a better seller for the makers. As yo...
