Re: SMSQ/E Source Reading

Strip out the microdrive code and that leaves 12 lines :P Considering that there is no MDV driver in SMSQ/E I find this highly unlikely ;) I am sure I used Super Gold Card with SMSQ/E and the microdrives worked. I think this was about version 2.76. Does anyone know the last version of SMSQ/E that u...

Is it a virtual memory Interface or protected memory system?

Re: SMSQ/E builds with QPC but not with SMSQmulator?

Hi, I tried compiling SMSQ/E v3.34 on QPC2, SMSQmulator, Q68, Q60. I used a clean boot with the supplied SMSQ/E source code QWA file. All systems produced valid SMQ/E build for all or individual targets. On the Q68, I used 512 x 256 and 1024 x 768 Mode 4 screen Modes, all SMSQ/E builds compiled as e...

Re: Sinclair QL - QL-SD with vDRIVE QL

Hi, I have both QL-SD and vDriveQL on same QL, with a SGC Clone, all works great. To make the vDriveQL more flexible, the vMapQL allows mapping of the external microdrives, that is vDriveQL to any of the internal microdrive slots. I also have 2 Spectrum Microdrives, which connect the the vDriveQL sy...

Hi Tim,

Most of the DTP programmes for the QL are not supplied with the source code.

DO you think it is worth trying to write an open source DTP programme?

Re: Optimal Flatscreen monitors for QL and Q68

Hi, Nice picturesof the Q68, but the clock is not set to the correct date. You need to set the date with the SDATE command and then execute the Q68 Set RTC programme: EX "win1_q68_q68setrtc" This will set the Q68 Runtime Clock. I mainly use an HP LE1901w monitor on the Q68, which has nativ...

I have voted for using a mouse, but I seldom use it... I have some QIMI interfaces with broken pins, w...
