Re: Demo by Five Finger Punch

Hi, Works great on the Q68, in DISP_MODE 1 (512x256 Mode 4/8) or as some call classic QL mode. It runs a lot smoother than the You Video. I might have a look at disassembling the binary file. *** Update Tried it in Q-emulator, would run in Minerva, but run OK in JS Rom. But not as smooth as the Q68....

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

Hi, After a question raised on the Italtian email list, with regards to reading Qubide image files on the Q68. The Q68 SMSQ/E has a QUB device to access Qubide formatted image file containers.

Re: Switch off Pointer Toolkit
