Re: Trump Card 768K - no cover/heatsink

Hi, I would then produce a 3D Printed version and replace the 7805 power regulator with a DC-DC converter, giving no heat. Oooh, interested. I've got nowhere thus far with my vague notions of getting a cover on my clone. I briefly toyed with the idea of a 3d print myself, until I realised that I wo...

Re: Case for Trump card clone

Ha ha - thanks for the welcome back, I never got a notification so sorry I didn't acknowledge you, I wasn't being rude! I guess that an STL file never materialised. Anyone else still interested in this? I'd really REALLY like to protect mine, I came close over Xmas with some thick black modelling ca...

Re: Case for Trump card clone

Hi everyone - did anyone ever get a case made for this Trump Card clone? I've finished putting my life back together now (new home, new town, new job) and I'm keen to pick up where I left off :-)

Re: Case for Trump card clone

Bah, catching up on things (real life has not been kind recently) - I would have been interested in one of these. But only one, to be fair. :-)

Re: transfer from pc to ql is it possible

HI Georgeo, just catching up here! I'm not doing anything else with my serial cable now, must admit that since I got the 2 floppies working I have done all my transfers using floppies. I run a licensed Q-eMulator install on my Mac, I tend to prep things up on that and then transfer to floppies and t...

Re: Intermittent floppy disk drive problems

Cool - and I'll keep you informed of when my QL comes back, if it's not too long gone then me testing them for you might still be an option. Happy to help whatever way etc. :-) As for the display - I'm using a cable from the RGB socket to a SCART plug, and that's going into my cheap-ass old 'portabl...

Re: Intermittent floppy disk drive problems

Hi Georgeo. I'm going to be without my QL for a week or so, as I've sent if off for a check-up and recapping (along with some seriously poorly Spectrums, I thought I might as well send a joblot). So, I could bundle up my Trump card clone (should be same as yours as we bought from the same seller) an...

Re: Intermittent floppy disk drive problems

Hi Georgeo - I haven't seen anything exactly like this with mine. Are you using DD or HD disks? Is there anything that might be interfering with the Trump card - yours is unshielded and basically unprotected like mine, isn't it? I got away from using the RF cable very quickly, I bought a QL-to-Scart...
