Re: Programming a second hand piece of cheese

On q-emulator (at least) there are some oddities (blank pixels) around 20 seconds. You cheated on the FILL command - you used just the first 30 seconds.... :lol: How about showing it for a minute? Ok Disbelief at first, as I had this working correctly on my set up, so he are the responses. 1: You c...

Re: Programming a second hand piece of cheese

WIthout a proper machine code paint routine having a complete circle that reduces is not easy (FILL won't work on certain shapes) - but if you run the routine once to draw the seconds on screen and then allow them to be removed on the next pass, that will give a good indication of time reducing... ...

Re: Programming a second hand piece of cheese

So I found a basic routine that I have adapted to SuperBASIC and after much tinkering I have got this to work after a fashion as a clock with seconds minutes and hours displaying correctly. However all the pointers start at a quater past (3 o'clock) and I believe it is something to rotation starting...

Programming a second hand piece of cheese

Yeh, I know the title is a little misleading, but what I want to do in the QL is similar to the countdown clock when you have 30 seconds to make the longest word from 9 characters.

Re: QL Software Preservation - Next Steps

Just some ramblings from me Rich, is it "Nick and his cronies" from WOS that also attack you or others, I don't know who these are? Either way its a sad state of affairs. I cannot comprehend why people do this at a technical level as 'Retro' is only a name and not related to a fixed point ...

Just a quick question(ish)

Happy New Year to one and all, I hope you have time for QL'ing I have an SMSQ/e question based around QemuLator and it maybe relevant to QPC2 and SMSQemulator too but I haven't got around to checking that yet. So in QemuLator I set the video card emulation to Q60 and load in the SMSQ code with LRESP...
