My old 'red' gold card had that on it, with the exclamation mark.

Ha ha, set a new trend of "must have the version with exclamation mark on it"... :ugeek:

Re: Elaborate Bytes Toolkit v4.00.

No, I agree, sometimes they start up with the menu, sometimes not, most probably just too fast as you say. Tried it with QPC2 again. Even with QPC2 set to QL screen mode at 512x256 on startup it only gets as far as playing music and the startup screen. The game doesn't actually start, but the emulat...

Re: Elaborate Bytes Toolkit v4.00.

Great, thanks. I'll wait a little while to see if anyone else comes up with further information - I see it's been downloaded by a few people already. May need to add both versions to my site until someone works out which is the best version to use. As you say, quite a playable little shoot 'em up. O...

Re: Elaborate Bytes Toolkit v4.00.

Thanks Chr$, I've just uploaded them to the Toolkits page on my site http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/tk/index.html Great. I've clarified: They retain copyright, so not freeware, but they have no issue with it being shared. Same applies to their game Qpede, in case you have that one. There's a screenshot on...

Re: QL USER type-in programs

Hi, Is it worth starting a project to type in all the QL World Microdrive Exchange programmes? I have been typing in some assembler programmes, but maybe I should start at the first issue and type the programmes in. I do not think the listings can be OCRed, due to the way the magazines have been sc...

Re: QL USER type-in programs

Well, from what you describe, it's excactly behaving as it should. 98403 (or $18063) is the QL's display control register. Bit 1 (the value 2) blanks the display, bit 3 (value 8) switches between a MODE 4 and MODE 8 screen, while value 0 switches back to MODE 4 and an enabled display. It's very unl...

Re: QL Radar (QL World mdv exchange no.58)

From what I remember, the version on my website was found on a disc of PD software from one of the USA groups many years ago. The REM statements say it was contributed by Joyce Blaho, with some troubleshooting modifications by Peter Hale (who used to run the software house Emsoft) and further modifi...
