The Wiki states Dan and Tom Gaffey as authors. Beside the Tracker program itself there are also a few machine code extensions written in 1991 by Phil Borman.

Re: Asymmetric multiprocessing...

Hi,I have some of the Miracle MIDI interfaces, I was going to connect a MIDI keyboard and use tge Tracker software. Just never got around to it, maybe next on the list. Great to hear. I fear, Tracker was Turbo compiled (but with an older version). Any chance to contact the author to get the source ...

Re: Asymmetric multiprocessing...

Have the Miracle MIDI I/F ever run succesfully? I have never read about that.

And not that all. What about in conjunction with the Miracle WIN? Seems to be quite problematic to connect.

Re: Black Phoenix 1.5 - Preview

On my PC (1280x1024) 960x540 is not good, still interpolated. I can set my size (in Windows) to 1024x768 (a QPC2 default), so should try, if that gave better results.

Re: Black Phoenix 1.5 - Preview

Problem solved, the safety settings on the extracted file for the user was wrong. Write was disabled. Now it works. Thanks to Marcel für the hint. The QBTnet error was the same here. I have spent quite a long time to find out, which gives the best screen size with QPC2 for me. It is 768 x 512 on my ...

Re: Black Phoenix 1.5 - Preview

I wanted to try BP15, put it into the recent QPC2, but it refuses to start properly. The window gets black, an error beep(?) comes, a few Buttons on top and a half created QDT button (just one). The pointer then is a padlock. When I open the System button, there is "at Line xxx:1" not foun...

My biggest persuasion is that I have "almost free access" to a couple of large boxes full of brand new 3-button bus mice. Black mice. For about $3.50 a piece.


Great!

Re: PC mouse to QL conversion project

Separately, we're still discussing the option of replacing the QIMI socket with an InPort socket (mini-DIN9) so that any PC bus mouse can be used directly, without adaptors. PC mice are still generally available and cheap. Hmm, an Atari mouse compatible socket would make a bit more sense in my opin...
