Re: QemuLator

Works for me, although just in a weird fullscreen mode that messes up my desktop, I see nothing in window mode. Apart from that, which resolution did you choose? Remember that the aurora can only handle 512x480 in 256 colour mode. Never knew it was bound by the same resolutions as Aurora. I was tri...

QemuLator

I'm using QemuLator 3.3.1 and attempting without success to get it working in high resolution in 256 colour (Aurora) mode. I've set the Additional Video Card to Aurora, and configured SMSQ/E to 256 colours and resolutions higher than 512x256. When the emulator switches to full screen mode (either at...

Re: QLiberator v3.43

I just did a rudimentary test with 17 small toolkits. It appeared to work! Would be interesting to know, why George Gwilt also has taken just 8 extension files to incorporate in Turbo programs. Probably because he was asked to provide a similar facility to that in QLiberator and just used the same ...

RIP Sir Clive. A big chunk of the lives of many of us revolved around your products at one time or another.

Re: The QL UDG Playground

Indeed. And even if including a full Toolkit 2 is too much of an overhead, there are several free and smaller extensions out there which can do the equivalent of the CHAR_USE command.

Re: Elite on QL ?

I only gave half an answer on the Elite demo (I was away when I wrote the message) - I should also have mentioned that Derek's txtElite is available on the Games page on my site: http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/games/index.html Or download the zip file directly: http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/games/txtElite1-6.zip

Re: Speech Synthesis

Having mentioned saving and loading via network port, I finally remembered where I'd seen such extensions for the QL. I don't know if this would be of interest, bwinkel67? http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/demos/Charvel.zip Charvel.zip (136K) - holds the Charvel Soft demo disk, containing: Q-SPEC by Dave Hall...

Re: Elite on QL ?

I remember reading somewhere something about Elite Demo for QL. But AFAIk nothing has materialized out fo that. Still "Elite" could be one of the few games where QL could efectively shine, even today. So I wonder if there is source available, either of original or of that demo... Charvel....

So I created a RSS Feed account in Thunderbird, using the RSS address for QL Forum: http://qlforum.co.uk/feed.php For the past 5 plus years, I get QL Forum messages by Thunderbird along with...
