Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi again! Ok, so the combination of your screen-capture (albeit, without the LHS reference-point that would allow us to be sure of the bit position of any erroneous pixels), alongside some research of my own having now disassembled the AH Network code (comparing it to later QDOS equivalents) leads m...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

OK, so its been a long while since I played with the QL network with such an old QDOS version and without TK2. I'll test here with AH and see if the bit-timings are any different than under TK2. I'm intrigued by your report of QL to Spectrum working reliably - Daniele reported something similar - an...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi! That's great - thanks for sharing your results! I'm going to make a few assumptions - feel free to correct me. a) You are running your Python'd SendFileMQ adaptation directly on the USB host connected to the Adapter. Furthermore, the adaptations are functionally identical to the provided SuperBa...

Re: Raspberry Pi - New Microcontroller

I was looking at this device earlier this afternoon with a view to how it might replace the Teensy uC around which the current QLUB Adapter is designed. Aside from the 3.3V to 5V translation (easy enough) , the other important aspect I'm still researching is how the onboard USB port is implemented -...

Re: Maximum Devices in QDOS/Minerva

Hiya! Yes, there is only space allocated in the Sysvars for links to the Definition Blocks for 16 directory-type device 'instances'. I thought it might also be the same for SMQE, but have never checked... I believe that the TK2 procedure DEL_DEFB releases all these as long as there are no open chann...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

All good feedback, Marcel - thanks! I'll add such comments/ideas in to the next release as well as to draw-out the additional guidance that is currently only documented in the REMarks in SendFileMQ itself. Meanwhile - anyone here fancy trying this out on uQLx and feeding back here? All my own Unix h...

Hi Richard!

Do we add SMSQ/e to it ?


No need to add anything, QPC2 includes a recent SMSQ/E binary compiled for it.

Welcome back :-)

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Good morning Marcel! That's great feedback, thank you! Yes, SendFileMQ includes a variable 'netSelf%' set near the top of the listing for my setup. Adjust as needed... Now you remind me, I too use the Minerva variant of EDLINe$ on SMSQ/SBASIC rather than the original DIYTK version - if I remember co...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi - thanks for that. I should have the revised firmware built against the latest libraries available next weekend, but yes, in the meantime, just flash the raw HEX file uploaded earlier. Let me know how you get on. Meanwhile, here's a revised SendFileMQ (v1.5) designed to work under SuperBasic on e...
