Re: SuperQBoard Replacement Manual

I also have playing instructions for International Cricket in printed A4 form, and I recollect buying the game*, but that microdive is not in my box ofQL software, so no doubt that will surface at some stage... * and not playing it much as I think my best ever innings was under 10 runs, even on easi...

Re: SuperQBoard Replacement Manual

Hi Dilwyn, Seems that my manual is gone for good - I rummaged about in the attic's deepest darkest corners, and no joy :( I did find things I'd been looking for for a while though, such as my Sun and Microsoft certificates and my Oric 1, so not a wasted rummage :D - I also found my folder of QL &quo...

Re: SuperQBoard Replacement Manual

Hi Dilwyn.

My old SQB has the mouse interface.
If I can track down the manual I'll see if the mouse is mentioned anywhere.

I'm away from home right now though, so it would be in a few days.

Re: Q68 and serial to WiFi modem. Doable?

Ahah! Thanks again Derek :) Seems like 300 baud is not available though - BAUD 300 gives me "Not implemented" still. However, BAUD 9600 worked :) I may need to get my QL out of it's box so that I can connect to the modem for the first time and set its BAUD rate up to 9600 at that end too. ...

Re: Q68 and serial to WiFi modem. Doable?

Hi Derek, I could not wait until tomorrow to try! :) However, when I enter BAUD 1, 300 (say, to match the Q68 to the modem's initial start speed), I get "not implemented". I have tried other speeds too. VER$ gives me "HBA", which is SMSQE (I believe?). so i have not inadvertently...

Q68 and serial to WiFi modem. Doable?

Hi, I have a serial to WiFi modem and would like to connect it to my Q68 so that I can do some good old BBSing. Does the Q68's serial port support this, and if so would somebody be kind enough to guide me through the steps I need to follow on the SMSQE end of things? I must confess that I was comple...

Because it's the most beautiful sounding language on the planet I suspect. Why speak in Westron when you can speak in Sindarin? ;)

Re: Show us your kit!

Normally though the icon above the envelope in the user area is highlighted when you have a message, so visiting the forum should show it - which is why I wondered whether the messages were actually stuck in transit, so to speak.
Mind you, I've missed that UI notification hint myself a few times.

Re: Show us your kit!

Hi I replied to your original PM but the messages seem stuck in Outbox, so maybe you have not seen them?

Let me know if you cannot access my replies.
