Re: PC mouse to QL conversion project

IF I remember correctly, Atari ST mice are compatible with QL + Sermouse.... can anyone confirm? Anyway, I found this interesting project to convert a normal PC mouse (serial, ball-type) in order to be compatible with: - Amiga - Atari ST - old, pre-ADB classic Macintosh computers - and QL? The proc...

Re: Today I Received...

This is not a Sony TV - it is a Sony Video Monitor PVM-1554QM . It has separate inputs for Red, Green, Blue and Sync with BNC connectors - so I use a QL RGB to SCART cable bought from RetroComputer Shack and a SCART to BNC adaptor. The image is rock steady ! Much better than any QL monitor. As I am...

So at some point if I can't find in USA an original Sinclair Vision 14 or a CUB, maybe my next option is a Sony. So what special cabling is needed to make a stock QL work on these Sony type TVs?

Re: Let us chat about Desktop Publishing on the QL

Will the Gold Card be enough or even the future #8 QL Board Dave is working on allow mic more easily if using this PE? Amply. When 512k was the best available, I was happy as a pig in poo with that ;) Cool. That will be my end goal. Will learn the basics "mouse-less" at first but hope to ...

Re: Let us chat about Desktop Publishing on the QL

Regarding mice on QL hardware, if you want anything other than a retro museum piece, you need decent software to use it, ie PE. That requires about 40k extra, and ideally, with Hotkeys and all that, about 50-60k. PE application software is also comparatively chubby, and real multitasking dramatical...
