Can you supply a 3D representation of a populated board?

Would this new board be standard alone or plug into anothe QL, maybe iss8?

Re: Warlock of Firetop Mountain

Hi,

My apologies for sending the zip to Wales.

I initially had the file named as "warlock-zip" but the Forum attachment software did not want upload it, so I changed yhe file name to"warrior.zip".

Do all uploaded software attachment files go to Wales for vetting?

Re: Symmetric multiprocessing...

Hi Dave, Looks great, I would like one... One question, who is going to write the driver software? You talk about a Flight Simulator to use the enhanced CPU hardware, which sounds excellent idea, but the same question, who would write that game simulation software? The major problems I had in the pa...

Yes, load the .mdv file into Q-emulator and do a DIR, you will see 3 files:

WARLOCK_12
WARLOCK_13

Which are Superbasic files.

If you do not know how to look at MDV files, I have created a ZIP file see attached.

Looks like 2 Superbasic adventure programmes.

Re: EDSPR under QPC2 doesn't work

Hi Ralf, This what I was trying to say, that the variable COMPILED is a Turbo Toolkit Keyword. I changed COMPILED to COMPILE in lines 100 and 105. All okay. In fact I removed all this compiler variables and used FOPEN to open the next channel in the Channel Table for the screen channels. This worked...

Re: EDSPR under QPC2 doesn't work

Hi Ralf, I suppose, channels 5, 6 could be left explicitly defined, assuming another programme does not use them. I do not think it matter if the installation of QPC2 is fresh or not. Since all the open channels can displayed at any time. I prefer to open the next available channel in the channel ta...

Re: Symmetric multiprocessing...

The only thing that can probably be counted on, sadly, is that no matter what the hardware it would likely get very little, very late OS and software support. This is true for any new hardware. So it becomes a critical design goal to make the hardware as easy to use and access as possible. The main...

Re: EDSPR under QPC2 doesn't work

Hi Ralf, I had a look at 'edspr_bas', I could compile and run the Qliberator object file, but executing a SBASIC job failed or running from SBASCI job 0 failed. So I looked at the source code, looks a little bit of a mess, the programme has been written to use I/O channels explicitly defined, that i...

Re: EDSPR under QPC2 doesn't work

Hi, I tried compiling EDSPR_bas with Qliberator, on SMSQmulator, with QPTR toolkit v0.14. I had to change Lines 100 and 105 which had a keyword clash with the Turbo Toolkit COMPILED function, to COMPILE in each line. Qliberator compiled the programmed OK and the object code was executed as expected.
