ICE ROM file

Postby bwinkel67 » Thu Aug 13, 2020 2:01 am

So i'm the owner of ICE. Was looking for a .rom file but nothing out there, presumably since it hasn't bee released into the public domain (though some of its programs have).

How could you go about grabbing the 16K ROM image from the dongle into a file to create a .rom file one could use with an emulator like QLAY2? Should be possible from the QL side, no?

Great, I hadn't even looked at it - saved it a couple of weeks ago from a German forum.

I got it to work on QL2K but not QLAY2. It loaded on the latter but double-clicking on the devices would not load any files (i.e. MDV or the re-mapped 2nd one to WIN). Not sure what is causing it. QL2K is an upgrade of QLAY2 so something changed to make it work.
