Re: Q40 and Q60 video controller for flatscreen monitors

That all being said, is it possible to center the 512 visible lines within the 768 line frame on the Q60? When I last tried that, I did not find a way. The responsible chip is extremely full, which makes even simple changes difficult. Regarding digital out, it should be possible to provide that by ...

Re: QDOS For Amiga

This is quite likely because I found QL related bus in two open source cores and contributed back.

What happens, complete crash? Did you try the latest FPGA versions?

Re: Q68 Order Process

Thanks for your feedback. I have both QDOS Classic and Minerva basically working the Q68, but no time to maintain/release. On Minerva, Jan (janbredenbeek here on Forum) and the UQLX author Richard Z. (ql-developers mailinglist) are more active than me at the moment, please feel free to contact them....

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

qxltools is an important cross-platform tool for QLWA images, its comprehensive commandline functionality is nowhere provided by QPC. It deserves maintainance for 64 bit Linux and Windows, not bashing! Why? Using the PC as a tool for QL development, especially for large projects, commandline automa...

Re: Raspberry Pi emulator state of play...

This is why I was so happy to discover the Pi CM3 (Compute Module 3) a few months ago... It is a Raspberry Pi on a DDR SIMM. It's *tiny*. It just has the CPU, RAM, eMMC, and optional WiFi/BT on the SIMM. You provide a SIMM socket and the connections you want, where you want them. Best of all, ALL t...

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

qxltools doesn't seem to work on my system - These tools used to work in the XP / 2000, but don't seem to like Windows 7 or above. Perhaps it's time to run a virtual box and a legacy windows platform just to be able to use some of these. It works on Windows 7, just open commandline as administrator...

By the way, does someone have a comprehensive mirror of this important QL website?

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

I have also found a PS2 mouse that will stop the Q68 boot after displaying the PC.CLOCK. Thank you for reporting. Curiously an old and cheap optical USB mouse works perfectly with a USB to PS2 adapter. I have not yet come across a USB+PS/2 combo device that would not work. No need to look for "...

Re: Q40 and Q60 video controller for flatscreen monitors

Pictures from Mr. Mark Smith in this FB thread where he describe his attempt to replace an old CPLD on a TC2068. I hope it can help... ;) Thanks, but not so much. Your pictures showed a PLCC IC replacement soldered to SMD pads on PCB. I have done that before, but it is not suitable for the Q60, whi...
