Re: Confusion over Aurora Mouse port numbering

Hi,

I seemed to remember there was problems with the Aurora manual which did not match the I/O connectors, I think there is mistake on the serial port as well.

Did you get the Aurora board working?

Re: QubATA

Hi, I think I have sorted out the problem, I loaded the REXT version of the QUBata v3.10 driver, which loaded the WIN driver and recognised the existing partitions, made in v3.08 The REXT file is made especially for the Tetriod TDI Card and called QUBTET_REXT, configured to use the WIN device and th...

Re: QubATA

From the manual: "With the 3.10 version, the driver has the ability to be started as WIN or QUB driver. If the driver was configured/started as QUB driver (and not as default WIN), please replace any WIN reference by QUB everywhere in the following sections." Possibly THIS is the problem?...

Re: Unable to format microdrives

I seem to have possibly cured the other QL by pulling out the TSR 2450 regulator and reverting back to a (new) 7805. After replacing it seems MDV1 is back to fully working and MDV2 does format most times but occasionally fails to - good enough for me!! I’ll do some more testing later on to confirm ...

QubATA

Hi, I have a Tetroid Trump Card with CF Card interface, which has QubATA v3.08, which has 2 x 256MB partitions on a 1GB CF Card. Leaving space for additional partitions. The system works well on a Minerva v1.98 QL. I decided to upgrade to QuATA v3.10, so I programmed a new EEPROM, on boot up the new...

Re: Unable to format microdrives

Evening! So the diodes were D17 D28 and D16. I also replaced TR3 TT4, TR5, TR6 and TR7. Some of those are for MDV2 so may not apply to you but probably won’t harm to replace them! I’m still baffled why my other QL is wonky but I may just give up on it for now! Hi, Are you able to measure the compon...

Re: Assembler Worbench Maual

Hi, As I said, I have read all the documentation in the downloadable files. The manual_txt file in the Quanta Talent Assembler Workbench v2.2 does not gives much in the way of configuration, there is mention of FCOM files which configure the programme. I suppose setup FCOM could be passed in the com...

Re: QD SBASIC Parser Thing

Is QBASIC a compiler or just another BASIC interpreter for the QL? Sorry for assuming that wpeveryone knows what QBASIC is, which is a Thing that can parse a SBASIC file from QD calling the SBASIC Interpreter and compile the programme with Qliberator. QD includes SBAS/QD which allows SBASIC source ...

Hi, I have been trying to use the Quanta Talent Assembler Work Bench, for assembley language programming. I have read the documentation that came with the Quanta Assembler, which is hinting at the configuration of the system and looking at the v1.3 and v1.4 updates of Assembler Workbench files, ther...
