Re: The Pawn is back. And it's not alone!

You might want to take a look at Ungif. http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/graphics/ungif.zip It does dithering in mode 4 and 8 and runs on any QL but was used here on QPC2 in mode 8 to make this example. A DO on the converted image opens a menu to change settings and redo the image. This size is 512x256, but...

Re: Beyond Super Gold Card

Hi Peter, If there is a vote, I would say development on new hardware. I use the Q68 mainly in DISP_MODE 4, which is very compatiable with all my existing QL QPTR software. I usually use Digital Precision software like ACT, EditorSE, 3D Precision in DISP_MODE 1. But most of the DP Software runs in D...

Re: Beyond Super Gold Card

Hi Peter, I would require a good connection of the QL video directly to a modern monitor. I have a monitor TV with only HDMI based video inputs, so it looks like VGA is being phased out on large screen TVs. On the Q68, I mainly use 1024x768 Mode 4 (DISP_MODE 4), as most of the QL software is not Hig...

Re: Beyond Super Gold Card

Hi,

The hardware to interface to a QL or Q68 is relatively easy, the problem area is the software driver.

There is not many people that could write driver software to interface to a RPi.

I am open to any suggestion to implement the software interface to connect a QL based system to a RPi.

Re: Beyond Super Gold Card

Hi, I mainly use the Q68 in 4 colour 1024x768 mode (DISP_MODE 4), which most QL software runs in this mode, that I have. High Colour modes are not that important, the 512x384 DISP_MODE 6 is good for most applications I use. But on saying this, if the Q68 could do High Colour and Hifgh Resolution wit...
