Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

OMG Daniele!

I'm sooo impressed (and increasingly embarrassed by my own casing effort!) :-)

I must admit to being just a little proud to see the project that I've worked-on for so long actually working for others (smug grin!)

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Fabulous! Thanks Stephan. So, a couple of questions and, if you are free tonight or tomorrow, why don;t he have another Zoom call to walk through some ideas? 1. What version of Minerva? 2. What version of TKv2 (embedded in your Gold Card)? 3. What Issue QL motherboard? 4. Have you tried sending the ...

Re: Ino (Arduino) and CPP file differences - For Peter

Brilliant! Thank you , Norman!

I've been using the IDE for a couple of years now and had zero knowledge of what it was doing under the hood - very helpful!

So, if I'm writing code for the microcontroller in the IDE, does that mean I can now profess to being a 'C programmer' ? :-)

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

That's gorgeous, Daniele!

Put's my own make-shift effort to shame :-)

When you get time, would you be willing to share the overall dimensions/measurements of the apertures, etc? Did you purchase a ready-made project-box, or 3D-print one yourself?

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi! Whilst on this (off-) topic and just as a little teaser - an updated version of the ND-Q68 driver that I am still testing can push over 700 kbps (that's bits per second, not bytes) between a pair of Q68s... :-) Not 100% reliable as yet and possibly of limited appeal (few QL-like devices can get ...

Re: TURBO'd app that hangs the QL on termination...

Hi Toby! It might be that the hang is actually caused by the timer extension In my case, all extensions are either made resident in a custom ROM or else (as in the Timer ext.) loaded in the BOOT file prior to EX'ing the Turbo task. T_OFF was included prior to termination in the task - though of cour...

Re: TURBO'd app that hangs the QL on termination...

Hi Michael! Thank you so much for resurrecting my older thread to introduce your diagnostic tool, which sounds very promising! As it happens, once I updated the QL-SD driver I never observed the hanging issue at termination again and shortly after that, commenced work on the QLUB Adapter project (wh...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi again! Ok, so the combination of your screen-capture (albeit, without the LHS reference-point that would allow us to be sure of the bit position of any erroneous pixels), alongside some research of my own having now disassembled the AH Network code (comparing it to later QDOS equivalents) leads m...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

OK, so its been a long while since I played with the QL network with such an old QDOS version and without TK2. I'll test here with AH and see if the bit-timings are any different than under TK2. I'm intrigued by your report of QL to Spectrum working reliably - Daniele reported something similar - an...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi! That's great - thanks for sharing your results! I'm going to make a few assumptions - feel free to correct me. a) You are running your Python'd SendFileMQ adaptation directly on the USB host connected to the Adapter. Furthermore, the adaptations are functionally identical to the provided SuperBa...
