Re: QL Mouse cable connections

Not all serial mice work either, even if the wiring is right. You may have to try a few.

Re: New discovery? 'Life' by CAT Systems Ltd

I wonder how I got it to work for the original qemulator screenshots then! I know that I was playing around with F1/F2 mode and that I was also entering Mode 4/Mode 8 after boot. Can't remember if it was Minerva or JS now though, but it certainly worked.

Thanks for the fixes.

I get weirdness like this. Odd, as it obviously worked fine for the screen above.

Re: New discovery? 'Life' by CAT Systems Ltd

Here's a qzip of CAT Systems 'Life'.

For some reason I can't get it to work properly again (in Qemulator). No matter what combination of RAM/ROM, with/without tk2 etc it always seems not to display properly and often crashes.

Re: MDUMP TASK ?

Yeah, I guess that Daniele still has the source code. And the EXE says "Can run on Sinclair or Minerva QDOS only", so I'm not sure Minerva is completely out of the question. *Goes to test it barebones with Minerva* - Yes, sorry, I tried it and it does work with Minerva (and TK2 + QLSD dri...

Re: MDUMP TASK ?

Daniele told me once that it needs an original ROM for the important timings, or something! As it's really only for original QL's and its only use is for dumping original cartridge data, I don't think it needs to be Minerva compatible. When I dump carts I simply ensure I'm running the QL barebone wi...

Re: New discovery? 'Life' by CAT Systems Ltd

I'll share it here, just trying to find more info first and also working out the best configuration/screen mode as sometimes it goes funny like it's mixing up mode 8 and 4.

New discovery? 'Life' by CAT Systems Ltd

Some recent QL archaeology has produced this. It's called 'Life' and is by CAT Systems Ltd. It's very much in the style of Psion with the red initial screen and menu within the program. I think it's similar to QL Life, perhaps. No idea. You can change some parameters and apparently move the cursor a...

Re: MDUMP TASK ?

imho mdump is a microdrive dump program so i would try with a microdrive image It is. But I think the only place you'd really want to use mdump_task would be on a real QL to make dumps of real cartridges. I can't think of a use for it in an emulator. And it certainly requires an original Sinclair m...

Re: MDUMP TASK ?

It's in the install location of qemulator, which for me is Program Files (x86)/Q-emulator/Ql Software/FileUtil/
