Re: More recent mdv discoveries

Of the remaining carts, here were the most interesting discoveries: QIMP (QL Icon Manager Program - see pic) - v1.50 1986 by L. Hirschbiegel. Can find nothing whatsoever about it or the author. Looks like an interesting icon/menu environment. Works with cursor keys or mouse (not sure what type of mo...

Yes, I think you're right as the style of the label is the same as other QL World exchange carts that I have.

More recent mdv discoveries

Some recent purchases/discoveries: Tank Buster - in original box, fully working - Actually a pretty good 3D wireframe game. War in the East - the +3 version it would seem, which includes all 3 of the scenarios. There is a cart labelled 'Master+3' and another called 'Scen 1,2,3', which I have discove...

Re: Spare Psion packs, please!

I got a pack I can get rid of, but you seem to be filled ;) I'm in Germany too, and it tends to be expensive to post them, not that it was cheap before Brexit. They should certainly fall under the customs limit though. I'd pay £10 per pack of 4 in the original case. Could probably give an address i...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Yes, it works perfectly now! I just sent a screen to the QL in the other room.

Thanks Marcel, sorry for being such a noob and sorry for wasting your time Martyn, with a problem for which I was entirely to blame.

So, 12.8m cables do work perfectly, at least I have confirmed that :oops:

OMG, so it does!

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Right, I moved things around and tried again with a normal shorter cable and it's the same! i.e. I can: Send files from QLUB (Qemulator or QPC) to Q68. Receive files on QLUB from Q68. Send files from QL with MGG to QLUB. Send files from the other QL with JS to QLUB. It still gets stuck at Blk#0 (and...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

If b) - my inclination at this point - then have you successfully tested the NET connection between the two QLs with that same cable? Or tried the Q68 to QL, but this time with that same long cable? Just how long is the cable? I've seen success with a 10m cable, myself. Out of interest, which versi...
