Thanks dilwyn, if we send Derek around to install mint you little icon wont need an axe anymore and you'll be a sQLux convert :-D

On that NOTE reading Q-Emulator headers now works (well as far as Ive tested it), could still be some corner cases. Next step is to replace the .-UQLX- files with Q-Emulator headers all round!

Hi,

I would have install the Welsh language option.

Maybe I coukd compile a Windows version of sQLux, I have a spare core i7 PC doing nothing.

Does the Windows compiled executable compiled on Windows 7 run on Window 10?


Regards,

Derek

64bit version will run on Win7->Win11
32bit version will run on WinXP->Win11

But you could just use the pre-compiled versions on github!

Although the tree is still in a bit of turmoil with the file header changes there is a new feature thanks to @Exile!

SPEED = X.X in the sqlux.ini to configure the speed approx relevant to the BBQL. Something thats been on the TODO forever!

Thanks

Great to hear! IMO having more emulators use the same native format will simplify the life of users.

Btw, Q-emuLator only uses headers for files needing it (e.g. executables) and it also does some escaping of the file name to avoid forbidden names (e.g. CON on Windows) and characters. If anybody is interested, I can share the escaping algorithm.

Hi,

Most development is done on an m1.

And it compiled 5 mins ago on one.

Did you use brew to install cmake/sdl ?
