Q68 - can I use QLWA on SDHC card with Q-emuLator?

Postby Sparrowhawk » Mon May 21, 2018 1:50 pm

(I'm posting separate threads for my Q68 questions to hopefully keep the discussions narrowly focussed and maybe help other Q68 novices when they search for answers)

Can I safely attach the QLWA files on the SDHC card to Q-emuLator? Given that the QLWA files are fixed length, I assume inserting the card into my Mac or PC and attaching the QLWA file to Q-eMulator is OK? (ie won't affect the contiguous sectors requirement that Q68 has for its container files)

I want to do this to start transferring my programs over. If this is not recommended, what is the correct procedure?

Hi,

The answer is yes.

The QLWA.WIN file on the Q68 SD Card is a standard QWA.WIN or QXL.WIN file, I used SMSQmulator to update the files.

If you put the the SD Card in a PC or MAC and point QPC2/Q-EMulator/SMSQmulator to the file as a WIN file in the emulator, then you can update the contents.

There are othrr ways, but this simple one.


Regards,

Derek
