Re: Beyond Super Gold Card

Re: WTB: Re-Felted Blank Microdrive Cartridges

I have a pile of re-felted carts that I've formatted at least 5x (with no errors). Most have old stickers on them. £23 for 8 and I'll throw in 2 decent original Sinclair bookcase type boxes for 4 carts each. Postage on top would be £3.50 standard airmail, or £6.00 if you want signed-for. Thanks... ...

WTB: Re-Felted Blank Microdrive Cartridges

Now that I own a QL, I want to start using it.

I want to buy some new or used re-felted blanks so I can save my word.

Anyone selling any?

I am in USA so please offer price + postage for some.

Playtape Felt for Microdrive Cartridges?

Not sure if you are all familiar with Playtapes? They were very small tapes, like 8 track, but about 1/4 the size. Still bigger than Microdrive Carts but closer than big 8 tracks. Wonder if these could be used to re-felt our carts? https://www.8trackavenue.com/product-page/playtape-replacement-felt-...

Re: Sinclair QL First Boot in USA 2019 - my YouTube video

Today I booted my Sinclair QL for the 1st time. The SuperGoldCard is a fantastic piece of hardware, but it suffers from not being available, and not solving the video issue. Recently I had a private discussion again about an UltraGoldCard for the QL case, mainly to provide an easy upgrade for retur...

Game creation book for QL?

What QL book do you all recommend for creating video games on a QL... Ummm.... for the QL beginner. Want something that shows how to create creatures and move them via keyboard. Like UDG in speccylands but for QL.
