Re: Atari Mega STe QDOS - SMS2 - SMSQ/e

Unknown to me as a long time ATari user, I don't recall in the olden days folks running this Alt OS on their Atari systems. Thumbing through a downloaded .PDF of QLToday I see all sorts of mentioned and dealer ads for Atari. Wow! So, anyone here have any experience running QODS or SMS2 or SMSQ/e on...

Re: RLE compression for sprites

Hi So I should ask Dilwyn why his mode 32 sprites got the alpha channel RLE2 compressed when RLE1 would compress the sprite further. There isn't any problem with smsq/e handling sprites with the pattern compressed RLE2 or RLE4 and the alpha channel RLE1? I intend to make some. Cheers The Q-Dock spr...

Re: QL World magazine scans

Klaus Frank in Denmark has sent me a disk with further scans of QL World magazines. All of the 1992 and 1993 issues, plus the final five issues from 1994, when the magazine ceased publication. Klaus has also scanned the QL New User Guide, a 138 page document which originally appeared as a supplement...

Re: Doubleblock game - problem

I'm confused, I just DEV does not want to cooperate, it does not matter if they used quotation marks, or name, or FLP1_ or FLP, nothing leads to the goal For dev_use driver v2.05 the correct syntax is: DEV_USE flp OR DEV_USE "flp" tested on QEmulator and it works Out of interest, with or ...

Added a bit more to the description of DEV - thanks Tobias for pointing out the DEV_USEN command which I didn't know about.

Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

Not 100% sure, but I think this would work with QDOS+pointer environment too, not just SMSQ/E. Vanilla QDOS (i.e. without PE) it may well be a problem when no cursor. I'll test it on QL without PE . I should have mentioned that it won't be a problem when started with an EXEC_W or EW command, only w...

Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

I've tested this out with QPC2, and your right - it does work. Control-C works as intended even without an enabled cursor - I am surprised. I have been mistaken - sorry! Not 100% sure, but I think this would work with QDOS+pointer environment too, not just SMSQ/E. Vanilla QDOS (i.e. without PE) it ...
