A great find - we could do with a description adding to the QL Wiki and the software being uploaded somewhere...

Is the software usable without the mouse?

Re: Replacements for Zx8301 / Zx 8302 / IPC

That's good to know Rich - so the ZX8301 is the more ciritically endangered species then! ;-) Are SuperHermes still available? I see the odd Hermes coming up on retro... Yes 8301s are a big problem.

Re: P.I. Cole - noir detective game

Looking great - I love more adventures :) QREST (part of ACT was probably the fastest display method I have seen for compression) - but there are two ways around this - a) Why do you need to compress the screens? Is it to fit it on a floppy disk - or is the game going to run from HD disk or SD / CF ...
