Re: PI Cole sequel

Your accompanying pdf identified keys used for your top menu but a little further explanation on the other options menus with the USE Command wouldn’t go amiss. It might be me but from my tentative trials all four cursor keys are used for Navigation of options. Space and Enter action a choice and r...

Re: PI Cole sequel

OK, I'm officially stuck. One of the many questions (probably the main one) is: why can't I call the police, using my telephone and the correct number, after finding a dead person? Is this a possible bug? The short answer is: you don't need to :) The long answer is: the police number remained on th...

Dilwyn's site

Can you access Dilwyn's site? I can't. When I try to load http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/ I only get Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server.
I remember there was an alternate url for the site - can you tell me which is it?

QL/E

I have installed QPC5 and loaded the QLE distribution. I vaguely remembered that I tried QL/E before, but I had no idea why I have not used it. Well, after a couple of minutes I remembered. When it starts it shows a large window named Lynx that covers almost half of the screen. I have no clue how to...

And the GC 256 colour version is only for Aurora with GC.

Idiot's Guide to Installing SMSQ/E - Needed!

I want to start using SMSQ/E on my bb QL with QL-SD and SGC - but I have no idea what file(s) I need to load and in which order. Couldn't find any documentation explaining this, either. The SMSQ/E 3.37 archive contains several files: Aurora.bin - I don't have Aurora, so not needed GoldCard.bin GoldC...
