QL Mag Cover Disks

I see that the printed contents of most (or all) of the original QL mags have been digitised and are available as PDFs, but what about the content of the cover disks? I suspect many things are available separately, but not as a single disk image or a zip. At least I can't find anything along those l...

Lrun a SuperBasic prog from Qascade

Err, as the title suggests, how do you lrun a SuperBasic prog from a Qascade menu?

Is there a 'Key' to use in the qascade_rc file for that?

Re: VDrive ZX or QL?

Yes, the actual original ZX MD's work usually, I've used one on my QL. I suppose in theory it may be possible, but the fact the toolkits are 'embedded' would suggest that they cannot be changed, apart from perhaps by Charles. The vDrive QL/ZX PCB's are also physically different (the ZX version allow...

Re: VDrive ZX or QL?

No, you can't. I once asked Charles about this (just in case) and it's not possible, the ZX and QL versions are too different. Mr Ingley's words: "the embedded toolkits are written for two different host processors".

Re: EasyCircuit v2.01 (German) now Freeware

Please use this one Derek, I've been through it, changed a lot of things around for it to make sense in English, removed errors that were a result of OCR or google translate etc. But I didn't compare it with the actual running program itself, so am not sure if the things it refers to are 100% correc...

Re: EasyCircuit v2.01 (German) now Freeware

HI, Here is the English version in MS Word DOCX format. ECHANDBUCH.de.en.docx.zip Making corrections now.... So far there was 'Pointer virus' instead of 'pointer environment', 'corpse' instead of 'gleiche' (the 'g' was missing so it was actually 'Leiche' in German!) and I've just seen 'Operation' t...

Re: EasyCircuit v2.01 (German) now Freeware

I think you're going to hate me now Derek! After you have clearly gone to some effort, I've just found what appears to be a never version of the EC manual - it refers to newer versions of the required software. I went through some more old 3.5" disks and there it was! And there was even a versi...

Re: Custom QL Retrobrighting

Hi, Cool. Just wondering what is that brighting formula, something women use to dye their hair, that is peroxyde based paste? Unfortunately my missus uses mahagon colours. Not useful for my ATARI ST machine. Tomas I've never used the paste. I buy 12% Hydrogen Peroxide in liquid form and mix that wi...

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

QL is certainly a steep learning curve! It's because we've become so used to pressing a button or plugging something it and it simply working.

I have done an English translation, I will upload here when I have proof read the translation.

Blimey, that was quick. I live in Germany and can speak German but doing a full translation of those 13 pages was a bit daunting and would have taken me ages!
