ICE ROM file

So i'm the owner of ICE. Was looking for a .rom file but nothing out there, presumably since it hasn't bee released into the public domain (though some of its programs have). How could you go about grabbing the 16K ROM image from the dongle into a file to create a .rom file one could use with an emu...

Re: QSEND inter-job signaling system

Turbo Toolkit has a "TYPE_IN" command that can put characters into the input queue of the current foreground job. That's probably the easiest way to remote control other applications. In order to make another job the current foreground job, you either have to make it the last one EXECed (...

QSEND inter-job signaling system

Anyone ever use this utility? I gave it a try and can't get it to work. It has commands for finding a job's channel and then sending text to its input channel. I'd love to send some text from SuperBASIC to an application but keep it as simple as possible. I can successfully do it within the windows ...

Re: Power supply

I recall in the 90's, besides changing the crystal on some computers, you could replace the power supply and it would increase the overall speed by playing around with some frequency it was delivering. But that was on the DC end I suppose. I had some info at the time for my Mac IIsi which I sped up ...

Hi, Reading the Qlay 0.90 maual, there is an entry in 7.1 Bugs Undocumented/untested/unstable development options: -F100 : fake F1 during boot Maybe this would work, or if it does not work, maybe the fake F1 option could be fixed. Thank you! That did the trick. So not sure yet what the 100 is for, ...

No, this is DOSBox.js that runs in a browser under JavaScript with no Windows support.

I'll give that a try. Hopefully it's not dependent on Windows since a few I tried won't work in DOSBox.

Re: Auto-boot in JS ROM

I've been trying my luck with TSR programs in DOSBox but no luck. They seem to just stop working once QLAY is running. I've tried KEY-FAKE, STUFFKEY, and STUFFIT and none seem to work. They are key stuffers that supposedly can do it in a timed manner but once QLAY takes over you are done with. You'd...
