Re: Floppy drives misbehaving

Hi, I have hot a Tetroid Super Gold card working on a QL with Tetroid power board to replace the QL power regulator and heat sink, now no heat. I have twin HD Disk drives, which loads SMSQ/E in on boot up from FLP1. Copying from FLP1 to FLP2 works perfectly. I do not have any ED drives so can not co...

Re: Eidersoft (M)ICE Eprom question.

Hi,

To get the subject back on track.

I had look at my attempt to disassemble the MICE ROM with DISA.

I have nearly got a valid disassemble, with no illegal data structures.

I have a little work to do to get all the ROM file to a point where it can be reassembled.

Re: new Q68 user, already some questions :-)

HI, Both Black Phoenix and QL/E use the Photon Wallpaper conversion of the JPEG file. There are faster ways to load a wallpaper, which I did in the production of the Q60, the JPEG file is converted and the BGIMAGE command loaded in the Q60 wallpaper: Q60_1.JPG I looked into the price of the KM USB-P...

Re: new Q68 user, already some questions :-)

Hi, I would be interested in the seeing the USB-PS/2 converter that would work with the mouse and keyboard, up to now this has been a little hit and miss, with no stable solution. I thought Tynemouth Software was not producing any more keyboard adapters for the QL. The problem with QL/E and Black Ph...

Re: QL-SD

Well, https://www.ebay.de/itm/Sinclair-QL-QL-SD/164282399738 wants 105€ for a used QL-SD. Even I find that steep :-P In other news, I've ordered a few more PCBs of the external version for further tests. Hi, Looks a little too much, but if the QL-SD is worth that much, why stop production. I would ...

Re: Eidersoft (M)ICE Eprom question.

I think they may be 'preserved' - but if the copyright holder hasn't released them then they are locked away for now - which is the legally correct thing to do. HI, I did start to disassemble the Mice Rom image, but did not really finish this, it was only for enjoyment and relaxation. I am not sure...

Re: How to uQLx on RPi

Hi,

I think your main problem is using the correct emulator on the ARM CPU .

I am not sure if an ARM v7 will run ARM V6 code.

I am not going be using the Raspberry PI for QL emulation, it is too slow, in comparison to a Core i5 PC I have.

But the Q68 out performs all this.

Re: How to uQLx on RPi

Hi, WHat is your version of Raspberry PI board?, you said a PI Zero? I have a Pi Zero 1.2, with no camera connector, or WIFI, it uses the same CPU as the PI Zero-W ; ARM6 Sorry about the confusion with the home directory references, if you refer to a good Linux book on Linux basics, it should state ...
