Re: Zip to MDV

The compilation problems were why I started QLFiler in Java - it can read .zip .mdv and .win files and 'just works' on any system with a Java runtime. However, there didn't seem to be any interest in the project so I didn't go any further with the needed write functions to save out .mdv files. Code ...

So you did. I got confused with Derek's comment that it ran too fast! Trying to juggle too many projects :)

Thanks for your help. I'm pleased to get this into a good (well, better) state.

Re: New (old) game: Rockfall

Not sure if the fix will improve things on emulators - in theory, if the poll routines weren't working, the game would just hang rather than running fast. (I think - end of a long week!)

Anyway, I've rebuilt with the moveq change and the links in the first post point to updated files.

Re: New (old) game: Rockfall

That's interesting... amazing it works at all :) QDOS doesn‘t seem to mind, but SMSQ/E does, which is why your poll routine was never linked in on QPC. Makes sense. It looks like I got the old trap calls right (when I originally wrote the code) but the newer poll stuff wrong (blame my rusty 68000)....

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/615204d6faec0c4993b299130b2b3db7 The interrupt handler is down at the bottom. Look for 'poll_routine' Thanks. You need to use...

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

If I understand it, the QL Emulator access to windows directories relies on a 'header file' in the directory being mapped as a drive? Is this documented anywhere? My end goal is to be able to transfer files between .zip, .mdv and .win files seamlessly, without having to run a specific emulator or in...

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...
