Re: sermouse. Mice & adaptors

Having ordered a PS/2 to serial card, while I wait for it to arrive I've started on a hardware adaptor for the EasyMouse+. As mentioned above, that mouse doesn't work with sermouse - in addition it implements the Logitech middle button extension. My adaptor is a fairly minimal 2 chip circuit, namely...

Re: sermouse. Mice & adaptors

Thanks Andrew. That looks just the job for that side of things.
Much appreciated.

sermouse. Mice & adaptors

I've been having an interesting time setting up the Pointer Environment with, mostly, success. My QL configuration includes Hermes copro and SGC clones, no QIMI or other equivalent hardware mods. I have a couple of Microsoft 2 button serial mice that work with sermouse. However, I also have a Genius...

Re: LED failure

As a final update, the 2V LEDs arrived from Farnell, performed well and were the right size for the case slot. However, they were not gripped in position by the case protuberances. I solved that by reaching for my tube of Dow Corning 3140 RTV silicone preparation (RTV = room temperature vulcanizing)...

Re: LED failure

Thanks. Useful to know. I'll be having a delivery from Farnell tomorrow so I'll see how those LEDs perform. It's not uncommon for LED brightness to change with age so I may end up having to replace the MDV2 LED to match. The wires would be a slightly retrograde step as I took the opportunity to repl...

Re: LED failure

Thanks for that. Given that you mentioned the ease I assumed a push-fit and successfully removed it (in bits). I noted that the parts list didn't give the voltage. However, a voltmeter across the mdv2 led during formatting showed 1.6V so that seems to answer that.

LED failure

One of my case LEDs has gone short circuit (mdv1). I'd be grateful if someone could tell me whether they're supposed to pull out or if they're glued in (and if they are glued then what the preferred method of replacement is). The LEDs appear to have a square base. Does anyone know of a UK supplier o...

Re: Emulation program freeze

Very useful info thanks. Everything now appears to be solved. I'd just composed a long reply mentioning that the QMAC docs were wrong about the 4K and that I needed DATA and have just seen you've mentioned it in the interim. This reply is now considerably shorter. I've just solved the Qmon problem. ...

Re: Emulation program freeze

Thanks for the suggestions. It looks like 2 separate problems. It seems that my Qmon will freeze on Qemulator with anything so it's probably best to return to that after the hex print is sorted out (except to say in passing that AH is no better with Qemulator). The stack definitely looks to be a pro...

Re: Emulation program freeze

Hi Rich,

I'm using the default on Qemulator i.e. JS with TK2 back ROM. My current real hardware is AH plus the SGC clone expansion card (I have some JM ones waiting for me to install).
