Re: QL soundcard+tracker???

There was a MIDI interface that Miracle did. Al Boehm of NESQLUG wrote some articles about it for QL Today. Looking on Dilwyn's page, there is a tracker package written for that MIDI interface by Dan Gaffey. There is even a download for the source code. Not sure how easy it would be to convert the t...

Re: John Conway: Game Over

Tofro, I've got around to trying to use WOPEN to create a console window (wopen(con1,512,256,0,0). I used it at the start of my program and all input and output is using con1. The first time I compiled and ran, I got "Error F - no reset". So I added a reset to con1 and then I got "Err...

Re: How to run Prospero Fortran on Qemulator version 3.3

I was able to run ProFortran on Q-emualtor under Wine on Linux. I tried ProPascal on QPCII (under Wine) and SMSQMulator and it failed on both. It seemed to work but compiling did nothing and at one point both emulators hung. If ProFortran will run on sQLux, it will run with uQLx, I just happened to ...

Re: How to run Prospero Fortran on Qemulator version 3.3

I went back to look at my notes on ProFortran and I was able to get it to work with Qemulator. I had to load the prl.rom as a ROM in Qemulator. I just finished testing ProFortran with the latest sQLux. (the latest can be found here: https://github.com/SinclairQL/sQLux. Just click on "clone or d...

Re: How to run Prospero Fortran on Qemulator version 3.3

I was able to get Pro Fortran to run in Qemulator. I did the load EPROM bit instead of loading the prl toolkit file (initially I tried to load both and that failed, you only need one).

Re: John Conway: Game Over

Tofro, > actually, all windows opened by Prospero Pascal using WOpen are CON_soles. Page II-74 of the Pascal manual says: "associates the Pascal file variable w with the QL console driver device SCR_......... (which is in fact the default SCR_ device)." I read that to mean that when openin...

Re: John Conway: Game Over

Tofro,

Nice job on the Pascal, esp. in just an hour. I'm very rusty with my Pascal. I like how you did the key input since the screen is SCR and not CON.

Re: Digital C SE Foibles on QPC2

Digital C was based on the Small-C that Gerry Jackson did. There is very little difference between the two compilers. I used Small-C for a number of years and the that code compiles fine with Digital C. QC is also Small-C based, but there are some differences between QC and Digital C, but porting fr...

Re: SMSQmulator v2.28

Tomas, The solution is to store QL files only on QL type devices, meaning mostly QXL.win files. I do have a number of NFA drives that link directories on Linux, but they are only to get files into and out of SMSQmulator. If I plan to keep a file on SMSQMulator, I keep it in a QXL.win file. I esp. do...

Re: ZX81 BASIC

A lot of the ZX81 software has been converted to .P or .81 files. There is zxlist (by Jack Raat iirc) and it will convert .P to a text file of Sinclair BASIC. If you need to convert your own cassettes, there is some software for Windows that will convert audio input (from a cassette player) into a ....
