Do you hear a small click sound coming from the speaker when you reset ? There should be.

Re: Sinclair QL - QL-SD with vDRIVE QL

You should be able to use both - there are 2 ROM sockets in the QL - both are wired exactly the same, so you could put the QL-SD in the right hand one as you look at the front, and the rom switcher in the left socket. The QL-SD comes with its own minerva rom. If you want to use your ROM switcher, y...

Re: Sinclair QL - QL-SD with vDRIVE QL

Hi, Most software, games might run on a Super Gold Card QL, but the main issue is that the programmers assumed the the screen memory and the System Variables stay static. Loading SMSQ/E will move the screen base to another memory location. On a SGC, SMSQ/E keeps the screen and System Variables at t...

Re: PLATOTERM 0.1 smoke test for Sinclair QL released

Hi,

Is there a way to test PLATOTERM without a wifi modem ? Maybe like connecting the QL serial port to another computer with internet access ? I am afraid the number of QL users that own a wifi modem is very low...

Re: Announcing availability of a QLNET driver for the Q68 (ND-Q68)

. I need to finish printing my Q68 laptop casing anyway. Hi Franois, Do you have pictures of your Laptop Case? I Derek, I was waiting to have the laptop working before talking about it but I might go ahead and start a new thread in a few days. All 3D models are on my job computer and I am on vacati...

Re: Announcing availability of a QLNET driver for the Q68 (ND-Q68)

My current plan is to install the QL NET PCB, (the one from Dave or something I will built myself), about 10 cm away from the Q68. Is there a problem having the three lines (3.3V, Ground and NET signal) 10 cm long ? As the length of NET cable between machines can be quite long, I don't see any issue...

Re: Announcing availability of a QLNET driver for the Q68 (ND-Q68)

About the electronic add-on needed, it is not clear to me what the red lines in the PDF means i.e. what needs to be removed from the original schematic. All three resistors with direct connection to the transistor, and the transistor itself, are removed. The idea was to show the difference between ...

Re: Announcing availability of a QLNET driver for the Q68 (ND-Q68)

A very good news! The compatibility with the Interface 1 is a big plus for me. About the electronic add-on needed, it is not clear to me what the red lines in the PDF means i.e. what needs to be removed from the original schematic. But I am in no rush and I am sure everything will be clarify soon. I...

Re: QL Network Protocol(s)

Hi, With all the variations of the net protocol, it would be very nice if someone with the knowledge could create a table (in excel or other) with all version of the driver (BBQL, TK2 VXX, Minerva, SMSQ etc, including the zx spectrum) in both row and column and, at each intersection, a list of what ...
