Re: QL Commercial Software Preservation

Is this a joke? Just because i own a Windows XP CD doesn't mean that you are allowed to sell me copies of Windows 10.

Edit: Also the page does not list any version numbers. Wouldn't these be listed there if it was about obtaining this kind of updates?

Re: QL Commercial Software Preservation

I don't get it. What kind of update is this? Can you give an example?

Re: QL Commercial Software Preservation

Maybe i am mistaken. But to me it sounds like this page: http://www.rwapsoftware.co.uk/updates.html offers cracked versions of commercial software (this seems to be what the page calls an "update"). How does that work? Is this a commercial service that offers help when circumventing copy p...

Re: QL on MIST FPGA board

I haven't tried that in QPC2, just read, that it supports that and tried the Image writer. Would be a good idea to transfer FLP to MIST. On the other side, as MIST has USB, it can support a real FLP driver via an USB drive. There is a free FLP driver from Tony Tebby via the qdos4amiga driver I once...

Please show me a site having some interesting images in that format. If this is limited to your personal use then it doesn't make much sense to support it.

Re: QL on MIST FPGA board

Just found the benchmark on the QL-SD. Results: Printing 1780 Functions 1900 Strings 2460 So pretty exactly twice the speed of the real thing. And that's with a CPU core running at 1.31 MHz. Yes, that's the clock the tg68 currently runs at. It's pretty efficient. In the Atari and Amiga we run it at ...

Re: QL on MIST FPGA board

I was learning FPGA programming in Verilog and VHDL, would this be a good platform for programming. I am doing all this directly on a regular mist board. Only add-on i am using is a cheap usb blaster from china (search for "altera blaster" on ebay) as this allows to directly download code...

Re: QL on MIST FPGA board

QL-SD turned out to be trivial. I actually only had to do some minor changes to the original Verilog code that was used to program the QL-SD's CPLD. Funny ... this is the first time i am actually using hardware code from a real device when rebuilding it in the FPGA. So my setup now has 640k ram, qim...
