Re: 8301

By the way, thanks so much for your texts, this is pure nerd porn. I think I must collect them one day in one big volume Or, on the QL Wiki? ;) I have pasted all of Nasta's excellent information about the 8301 in LibreOffice along with the pictures. Which makes 33 pages of proof reading. I will edi...

Re: Mini US 2018 QLer meetings

Hi, I think Tony Firshman did some corrections on the QL Schematics, but I never seen anything. Maybe a good idea would be to draft up the QL Schematics in an Open Source CAD software like gEDA or KiCad. I will see if I can draft up the schematics from the Service Manual and correct any errors relat...

Re: QL Pawn

Hi,

Could the source code be released, as I had downgrade to JS Rom to run the game under Q-Emulator.

If the source was released a more enhanced version could written.

Re: What Editor is best to use ?

Hi, If a file is saved in Q-Emulator to a Windows mapped Folder. I asdume a QDOS header is attached to the file. Can this file be read on a non-emulator QL? Is there a command in Q-Emulator not to add a QDOS header? I only use WIN containers on Q-Emulator, which allows interchange with all QL platfo...

Re: 8301

HI Peter, A many years ago a friend fitted his Aurora and Super Gold Card into a BBQL Case and made a Membrane connector to the QL keyboard. I was going to make some Auora board and produce a Schon style keyboard to connect to the Aurora and use a Super/Gold Card. But never quite around tthis. I hav...

Re: What Editor is best to use ?

Hi Andrew, When you say the drives are mapped correctly, can you show the drive mapping or maybe upload the Q-Emulator config file here so that we can see what you have setup. I have attached a QXL.WIN file to Slot 1,2,3 which translates to MDV1(FLP1,WIN1),MDV2(FLP2,WIN2),MDV3(FLP3,WIN3), I have def...

Re: 8301

Hi Nasta,

Wold it be possible to design a replacement 8301 that does exactly performs the current 8301.

I ask this mainly due there maybe a problem sourcing working 8301 chips. Since there are still many people using a BBQL that relies on the 8301.

Re: Laptop offer

Hi Dilwyn, Look a nice laptop for the price. I have copies of Windows 7 that can be used on the Laptop or I would install Linux Mint, which will run all QL emulators with WINE. QPC1 can be run with DOSBOX on either Windows or Linux. Linux is a more secure operating system with no licencing problems.

Re: WIN_REXT for Miracle Systems Hard Disk

Hi, Do you have a Miracle Hard Drive plugged into the ROM Port and QubATA interface in the expansion port? If so, both use the WIN device and there might be a clash loading the ROM code for each interface. You might have to remove the ROMs from one of the interfaces and patch the WIN device to somet...

Re: Installing SMSQ/E on BBQL+gold card

HI Juan, What version of QPAC2 are you using, later versions, v1.45 use the hi-colours in SMSQ/E. Maybe you need to use Qpac2 v1.39. What version of SMSQ/E are you using, this can be checked by: PRINT VER$(1) Maybe your problems are down to mixing hi-colour software with QL resolutions i.e. Mode 4/8...
