Re: Boot Q68 without monitor and keyboard

If you've got an old keyboard you don't care about. Rip it apart, and just plug the bare electronics board in. You don't need the actual keys.

Re: How to use a mdv image to get the real files

There was some patching done to the Josiah game in this thread. https://qlforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2700&hilit=josiah You have to watch out with _mdv images, they may be Qlay format files, or they may be the different Qemulator _mdv format file. The CONVERT2MDI command takes that into ...

Re: QLiberator v3.38

Without ploughing through your program. I take it you are altering the list of names in the _wrk file. I thought about doing this, but as I don't know how a _wrk file works, I thought I world probably just screw it up. Here is the program that I wrote for comparing _obj files 100 REMark A program fo...

Re: 5.25" floppy drive configuration

Maybe it's down to the low level QL floppy driver. It knows about 720K, 1.4M, and 3.2M disks. Perhaps it gets confused when it sees a 1.2M. That might explain why when Qemulator formats the floppy, it gives 720K. It can't return 1.2M because that's not one of the recognized sizes. So it goes back to...

Re: QLiberator v3.38

I have an idea, here. All the names used are stored in the wrk/sav file that is created. The resident names are listed first. The idea is to re-order these names to the order in the original QLIB_obj file. As far as I can see, all the names are there, but the original contains an additional name, &...

Re: QLiberator v3.38

EmmBee, Martin, There is still a problem with EXT_xxx, but the symptoms have shifted a bit. I find I get different results on QDOS-Minerva and QPC2. While it works on QDOS, on QPC2 I get error messages of "Keyword must be at start of program", even when EXT_PROC / EXT_FN is already at the...

Re: 5.25" floppy drive configuration

So, as confirmed also in the link here above, the DOS 720K format exists. In any case... no way. I tried disks marked as "DS DD", "Double Side DD", "Single Side DD", Commodore64 and unidentified disks. Also 1.2MB disks. I tried all FLP_TRACK, FLP_DENSITY, FLP_JIGGLE co...
