Re: TDI P-System

I'll email you the dumps now Daniele. All the cartridges have a few bad sectors. One sector in the first one is also completely missing from the dump... the sector header must be corrupted. Unfortunately, the partial reads of the bad sectors don't look empty, in the sense that they contain varied d...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Yeah - Since SBASIC came of age, I have developed a habit of passing tons of parameters as well as gratuitous use of LOCals just because I can :-) I run on JS and haven't noticed LOCAL bugs, but the same code wouldn't work on some earlier ROMs like AH. Not important for emulator users, though, they...

Yes, I'll post it here. I've actually just noticed another issue: The SuperBASIC version produces files that are too long. I think it's a SBASIC/SuperBASIC difference in handling LOCAL variables.

The emulated QL or the Q-emuLator application? In the latter case, maybe you can PM me more details, especially if it can be reproduced?

About the randomness, perhaps RANDOM's implementation is based on a timer?

Re: TDI P-System

Not sure about the p-system file format, but if you want to send me the dumps, I can at least take a look at the mdump sectors, perhaps it's possible to see if partially-read damaged sectors look empty or not. With mdump, you can also alternate the src drive to maximize the probability of success. (...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

b) I have the raw HEX code of the firmware as compiled with the older tool-chain which you can directly flash to the Teensy. Thank you Martyn, the adapter started working well after I uploaded this version of the firmware! There was a change in the Teensyduino library which might be the cause of th...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

I got the Teensy board and wired the circuit, but it's not working for me, yet. I hope to start troubleshooting in the weekend. Hopefully just an error connecting the circuit. The "bridge reset" succeeds, which looks like a good sign, but transmission in either direction is not working. I ...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Wow, great descriptions about the project and QLAN in general! QLUB sounds very useful for unexpanded QLs... there are very few devices that can be used for PC-QL file exchange on those machines. I remember using the QL network in the 80s to exchange files between my QL and a friend's Spectrum. It w...
