Re: Sinclair QL vDrive - Load & Use Applications and Games - Video

I understand that, but that was not my question. If I map a vdrive to mdv3 thats fine.

I think a menu program is requrired which gives a list of images, and loads w...

And it is a chinese brand tape, so it was not very good to start with. But I will have to find a way to convert it to digital (I do not have a working tape ...

Re: Football Manager Type Game

Like the original football manager on the speccy. I have not played much on the speccy. I remember playing Saboteur, Chuckie Egg, The Hobbit and maybe a couple of others. I had a +3 back in the days, but I used it mostly as a CP/M machine. And wrote a couple of programs on it - the largest being a ...

Re: Football Manager Type Game

It looks really great! Did you created it only from code or in a graphics editor?
That TV Gantry looks special and adds a splash of color - but it can become an issue if you want to animate players, as it is over the playfield. Also the fence

Re: QL USER type-in programs
