So people paying attention would have noticed that under Minerva sQLux did have some screen corruption (it only exists on screen not in memory)

I believe with my latest set of changes this is now all fixed. I think now all writes from the VM are now arriving correctly on screen. And even better it does not seem to have affected performance negatively on slow devices like Pi0.

Interesting question is on a BBQL are the pixels always square? (also this goes for the clones).

Hi,

I updated the Github files for sQLux and compiled the emulator easily first time.

I like the move to cmake and the updated commad line options.

Nice work.

No they are not. In 512x256 QL MODE 4, I double horizontally and triple vertically for VESA standard 1024x768 on 4:3 monitor.
That roughly provides the QL aspect ratio seen on CRT historically.
