Re: LibVT

Hi, The problem here is that you have not set the Environmental Variable for the terminal type, which uses "terminfo_qdos" I set my VT52 terminal in the boot file with the following commands: REMark Set variable for terminal type SETENV "TERM=QDOS" : REMark Set variable for termi...

Re: Beyond Super Gold Card

Hi, Peter,

The Raspberry PI3B+ had a 1.4GHz 64-bit quad-core processor, is this a fair comparison to a single core processor running at 40Mhz.

I have three Raspberry Pi3B+, which are not any use, except for one that ised on Retroprinter.

Re: EasyCircuit v2.01 (German) now Freeware

Hi Chr$, Easycircuit looks really good, please pass my complements to the author. I never read the German issues of QL Today, as I thought they were a German translation of the English magazines.

Re: P.I. Cole - noir detective game

Hi, Tiny Toolkit or Qview Toolkit, was written by Laurence Reeves for the Qview Viewdata BBS system. That said, there was many good commands that were available, with documented source code, when there was nothing coming from other sources. I used use it many years ago when all we had was Minerva.

Thnak-you Derek, For this particular program (EasyCircuit v2.01) I have just got permission from the author to make it freeware so will start another topic in the Software section and share it openly in due course.

Re: QL/E running on QXL2 ISA PC card

Hi Chr$, I would suggest writing your own boot system and not rely on pre formatted systems that may work but could have only 10% of what you really need.
