Voyage of the Beano and Tetroid with CF Card

I recently purchased a Tetroid Card which includes a Compact Flash Interface and Minerva and Qubide etc. I wanted to get "The Voyage of the Beano" adventure to run from the CF card, which I eventually did, but it wasn't easy and the documentation I found for this kind of thing was lacking,...

Steve Davis Snooker

Hi folks. I took a risk and purchased a lot of 26 MDV cartridges on ebay. One of them was Steve Davis Snooker by CDS software. It seems the file P5 is bad. Does anyone have a copy of that file they can post for me? The other files are intact.

Yes, another iteration. The IFs have been replaced with SELect. This version also supports multiple pages, you can navigate with the cursor keys, or use CTRL + Left and Right to jump between pages.

Re: vDrive QL Menu

OK, another iteration. This one has much improved performance when navigating - only the new and previous selections are updated on the screen instead of the whole menu. Also, the left and right arrow keys now allow you to move to the next or previous columns.

Re: vDrive QL Menu

Here's the next iteration. All the GOTOs and duplicate lines are gone. The list of banks are loaded into an array from DATA lines. The menu can handle up to 39 entries split into 3 columns. The next task is to stop the menu from re-drawing everything when a cursor key is pressed, but only update the...

vDrive QL Menu

I've been messing with the QL Games Cartridge menu to come up with a menu I can use to launch applications from different banks. Seems to be working pretty well. So far I have a single column menu which supports 13 selections. I should be able to tweak this to support 3 columns. Anyway, the Superbas...
