British BBQL+

I have to sell a complete British BBQL system in a perfect state and rarely used. Including original packaging, leads, PSU and english manual (as new). The motherboard is a D14/Issue 6 layout, fitted with a JM ROM. Keyboard membrane was renewed as well as all main ICs (68008, zx8301, zx8302, 8049). ...

Re: re programming gals rom on a qubide 1,56

I have used a similar scheme to implement a big 1 mega rom (2x512) on Q40 with external selector switching between 2 bigs uncompressed SMSQE in rom.
This worked fine but I don't see any benefit to switch between 2 qubide firmwares...

Re: re programming gals rom on a qubide 1,56

Well, I am not a hardware man able to answer electronical questions but I don't see why writing x times the firmware code on winbond 512 could be a solution. Higher addresses than 16k should not be selected at all. If the board does this way, you have to bend out some adresses legs or to ground them...

Re: re programming gals rom on a qubide 1,56

Hello, If both gals are near the edge bord, I guess your board is a clone. The gal 1 is nearest ide connector and the gal 2 nearest QL motherboard connector. I am used to reprogram the gals without need new ones. Usually clone board comes with otp rom which cannot be reprogrammed and need to be repl...

Re: qubide single ended version what gal version ?

You can use the QUbATA V3.10 Driver for the Clone version.
I attached below the archive containing ROM and GALs binary codes to burn.
There is also a REXT code which can be LRESPRed after having configured the base address for QubIDE hardware.

Re: SPEM Floppy sistem with drive unit

Yes, flp1 to flp4 or anything else when renamed with flp_use.
It's a quite standard disk interface with the standard tk2 commands contained in rom ( subset dealing with file system but not level 2).
I may scan manual but it's only in Italian.

Re: Dot matrix printer for QL

I bought this printer in the 80s in France and was sold specifically for the QL (in fact, it's a 1109 model). I've got an additional manual for the FX80 ROM mode with all supported instructions. I'd liked using this printer at this time with the NLQ quality, either with RS232 and Centronics interfac...
