Re: Q68 I2C Driver

Thank you Martin! I looked onto this a few years ago, but the task was too difficult for me. Does it runs only from normal memory or do you need to use some of the Q68 fast memory ?

Re: Target for major new QL hardware

I don’t think there will be any issues with a 90 degree bend using new membranes. Once installed there will be stresses in the membrane but it will be static stresses. What breaks such membranes is usually fatigue. In other words, install it and leave it alone.

Re: SMSQ 3.38 for Aurora does not work ?

Re: Target for major new QL hardware

I couldn’t agree more with your design choices Peter. Although I voted for the plug-in card in an existing QL, the motherboard replacement was not far behind.

Re: Previously unreleased game

Does this game run at the intended speed on a fast system or do we need to SLUG the computer ?

Re: CAPSLED

Would this project also work with Hermes instead of the IPC 8049 ?
