Re: QL/E running on QXL2 ISA PC card

Hi, I have had many QXL Cards, with the standard Miracle Systems 68EC040 CPU running at 2Mhz and the QXLII running at 25Mhz. I also fitted a 68RC040 to the QXLII, which gave it an internal CPU based FPU. I only have used the SMSQ or SMSQ/E QXL application from DOS, not Windows. Never really used the...

Re: Designing 3-D cases: vDrive & Q68

Hi, The Q68 QLNET connection is derived from the internal Q68 expansion port. I started to fit a male 2 x 12 DIL X 2mm connector to allow simple connection to the Q68 expansion port. The placement of the Q68 QLNET connectors are proving a little bit hard to incorporate into the Q68 case. Where I hav...

Re: QLiberator decompiler

Hi,

Maybe a GIT Hub project would be the best solution here so that changes and updates can be tracked.

Re: PSU Question - Better safe than sorry

HI,

The voltages are the same, so just put a EU plug on the end, or fit a UK-EU adaptor.

The UK Colours are:

Brown : Live
Blue: Neutral

Earth maybe not fitted.

Re: FGPA Anyone?

Daniel, I too had problems initially with putting .WIN files onto the Q68. However I soon realised, as you probably did, that it's easy to check that the .WIN file works on a PC (with an emulator) and then just copy it onto your SDHC card. I know that this may not seem helpful, but it's the process...

Re: Beyond Super Gold Card

Hi Folks, I see that one of the main subjects of this thread is that the QL is limited to 8 colours, or 256 if you include stipples. But QL stipples only use two colours, combined in four patterns. Back in december 1993 Quanta printed a little program I wrote, using 'four-colour stipple' combinatio...

Hi, Works perfectly on the Q68 in DISP_MODE 1 I renamed the FLP image file "198adDisk ImageFinal.img" from the ZIP file to a file called "198ad.img", as Q68 FAT paritions only use 8+3 filenames. I have copied the FLP image file: "198ad.img" to a FAT parition on Q68 SD C...

Re: 198? - A cyberpunk ACT text adventure Release thread & Download!

Hi,

I just realised that the IMG file is a FLP image, so just need to convert it to FDI to run on Q68 and other real QL computers.
