QPC2 v5.02

Postby mk79 » Thu Nov 25, 2021 5:41 pm

I uploaded a small bugfix release QPC2v5.02.

Switch DMEDIUM_FORMAT for the DOS device to 1 (QDOS) instead of 2
(MS-DOS) because QD switches to different line endings on MS-DOS
drives and that confuses other applications.

Also fixed direct SBYTES to screen from WIN/FLP/DOS devices.

Enjoy, Marcel

In case you are thinking "Well of course it does, you bloody idiot!": I was only joking ;)
But that aside, wouldnt it have been more to the point to just fix QD instead? (Asking for a friend.)

a) Easier to change QPC than to get everyone to update QD. Also, it's just a one byte change this way.
b) I designed the new DOS device in a way that it could completely replace WIN, so saying it's "QDOS" style isn't that unreasonable.
