Re: How to run Prospero Fortran on Qemulator version 3.3

Re: Happy Birthday!

Hi Again,

Change the 'wait' multiplier to 0.1 on Supergoldcard.... to get the sound right.

Fireworks2_bas was first writtten on QPC at 1.8Ghz, then on Qemulator....

On a 128ko QL, experiment with the wait factor !

Regards,

Steve.

Hi, Cristian, Chr$, Prof,

I have just enough disks for all three of you.
