Re: New (old) game: Rockfall

I use the interrupt poll to increase a timer, and then check the timer whenever I'm in a time sensitive routine.

The full source code is here: https://gist.github.com/atoone/615204d6 ... 130b2b3db7

The interrupt handler is down at the bottom. Look for 'poll_routine'

Re: QL Filer - New in 2019 - Archive media extractor

Thanks for the encouragement, I won't bother with any more software for the QL. If it doesn't suit your needs, then don't use it :) The problem (for me at least) is that QPC and the others are really not very good at exchanging files with PCs or Macs or Linux - and I want to be able to get files out...

QL Filer - New in 2019 - Archive media extractor

As I was trying to figure out how to get old disks found in my loft working on the current generation of emulators, I quickly discovered that there is fairly inconsistent support for the various media formats on modern PCs. QL Zip files are a bit mysterious, and the tools to handle .mdv and .win fil...

Re: New (old) game: Rockfall

I downloaded both Rockfall files, I tried the WIN file on QEMulator running MInerva v1.98 Running the emulator at full speed, the game was a little unplayable, but the registered version of QEMulator, allows the emulator to be slowed down to normal QL speed. This made the game run OK and I was able...

Re: New (old) game: Rockfall

Funny, I thought "man, this looks familiar" and sure enough I had included Rockfall in my QL-SD demo disc https://www.kilgus.net/ql/ql-sd/ . You can download it here either as a .win file or a directory - both should work on emulators that match the original QL memory mapped screens. QPC2...

Re: uQLx 2018a

Just as a follow up - the bug accessing win devices on uQLX under Windows Subsystem for Linux is specific to version 2018a - the older version without the TCP fix works just fine.

New (old) game: Rockfall

Christmas gave me a little time to go through the loft and resurrect some old disks, including a Boulderdash clone I wrote a looooong time ago called Rockfall. Unfortunately on just about every emulator it runs insanely fast and is completely unplayable. So I've dusted off my assembler skills, worke...

Re: FGPA Anyone?

I've been experimenting with the MiSTer QL emulator built on the DE10 Nano FPGA board - it's a compact and fairly neat implementation of a bare bones QL - with some support for QL SD card images (though i can't get that part to work). It would be lovely if it got more support for disk images of var...
