Re: Q68 QoE Ethernet Driver

If you get a 'net aborted' message, that's the IP Network driver timing out. If you get a 'hang', you can try pressing, and holding CTRL-SPACE. You may have to hold it for up to a couple of minutes. The IP driver checks in places for a break, but you have to wait for timeouts to come around. I got ...

Re: Q68 QoE Ethernet Driver

Thanks a lot Martin, finally I can do something with the Ethernet port on my Q68 exactly 3 years after it arrived! This saves a lot of swapping SD cards between the Q68 and my PC :) I noticed the network connection sometimes 'hangs' when doing a file transfer. I'm not sure whether this is a problem ...

Re: Hello from the Netherlands!

A member of the Sin_QL_air user club has even made a ROM cartridge with built-in cassette interface.
Note the extra LED and 32K EPROM so you can switch between two ROM extensions...

Re: Hello from the Netherlands!

This is the interface I was referring to. The LOAD section should be connected to the recorder's headphones or line out jack. The purpose of the battery and 2k5 potentiometer is to provide a pull-up to the QL's net input so it's just around the point where bit 0 of I/O port $18020 flips from 0 to 1 ...

Re: Hello from the Netherlands!

Hi Mathias, Hello Jan, I recently read on Your github basicode repository, that you had designed a tape interface for the QL using qlnet. Can You provide documentation, schematics to built this interface? Another question is: what is the prefered way (and requirements) to to load basicode files on a...

I've had similar experiences with too many LOCals on JS. Minerva and SMSQ are fine.

Re: Serial port control question

So then I could substitute the TxD pin for one of the two I need. That still leaves me short the other pin since it needs to be toggled low/high for the other two states. BTW, I do have a Hermes chip, does that give me a leg up on the problem? You can use RxD on SER1 (which is the output line, like...

Re: Serial port control question

So, can one easily control DTR and CTS directly? I'm guessing perhaps a couple of TRAP calls since I doubt you can do it via SuperBASIC. With a normal serial connection the DTR/CTS is controlled by the 8049, indirect to the user, correct? There is no way to control the outgoing DTR/CTS directly, as...
