Re: SMSQ/E builds with QPC but not with SMSQmulator?

another quick update: Wolfgang has tracked down the problem to SMSQEmake, so nothing is wrong with the Thing system itself but it seems the way it was called with EXEP and worked mostly only by accident in the different screen modes. With a new version it now works like it should. I guess this one w...

Re: SMSQ/E builds with QPC but not with SMSQmulator?

just a quick update: Wolfgang could reproduce it and is narrowing down the problem. It's partly based on the .ini (only changes are mode 4, full screen 2, double pixel setup) and so far looks like a memory issue with the ERT HOT_RES of QMAC. Commenting that out makes it work but it's still unclear (...

Re: SMSQ/E builds with QPC but not with SMSQmulator?

Ok, I' ve got it - after testing various permutations and disabling all boot files and removing all win devices, disabling all unneeded device drivers I gave it a last shot: It's the Colour Mode setting: I invariably run with the normal QL 4 colours on all my devices. Switching to Aurora or 16 bit m...

Re: Chromebook

I have SMSQmulator running on my Google Pixelbook (i5) - the display size makes it very small even with double scaled pixels on, but it works great. WIth newer Intel Chromebooks there is no need to go into developer mode. You can just activate the Linux sandbox and then install whatever you need as ...

SMSQ/E builds with QPC but not with SMSQmulator?

Hello Friends... I have a curious situation, maybe somebody else ran into this: I try to recompile SMSQE (3.34, latest .win from Wolfgang's site) and it compiles happily on QPC2 (of course it would) but then trying the same under SMSQmulator (Java8 version, again latest from Wolfgangs site, Linux or...

Re: Current availability of replacement Microdrive faam/felt?

Does anyone have a pointer to a source for a suitable replacement foam/felt for Microdrive cartridges? I'm using these https://www.ebay.com/itm/8-Track-Tape-Replacement-Felt-Pads/252762966703 - I've refelted over 60 cartridges now and so far they are holding up nicely. My only issue is the shipping...
