Re: Z80 emulation?

Tobias thank you ever so much for that, it was invaluable. Born 1980, I missed much of Sinclair history and only entered the fray during the later Amstrad years. So any insight to these years is greatly appreciated as it lays a bedrock to build something resembling an informed opinion. :D

Re: Z80 emulation?

If anyone could spare to time, I'd really appreciate some comments on the emulation side of things. Which hasn't yet been touched on.

Re: Z80 emulation?

Hey guys

Just want to give a big thank you to everyone for sharing such a wonderful wealth of information.

I was wondering if anyone could comment of the emulation side. At what point did the emulating the Speccy on the Ql become a thing? My own research suggests 1984.

Re: Z80 emulation?

Hi Tim Thanks for the link and replying. I was surprised to see I've had a number of views but little response. Perhaps because it's treading over a well covered topic? Who knows lol I read that Sinclair intended the QL to compete and also out perform the IBM PC of the day. Sadly I think the stunted...

Re: Z80 emulation?

FYI The reason I ask is because I'm writing an article and I'd like to confirm whether my perception of the QL is anything near accurate. I started out on the Spectrum and C64 a few years after the QL had been and gone and dont have the luxury of first hand experience. So input from any QL users fro...

Z80 emulation?

Hey guys A random question Back when the QL was launched my impression is that Sinclair tried to separate it as much as he could from the spectrum, so as to avoid people perceiving it as another home games machine. Would that be an accurate assessment? Also at what point did emulation of the spectru...

Re: Wiring pin out for top lid

Thanks for posting that link Rich

The QL is now up and running again, keyboard fixed and all LEDs in working order!

I'm going to hold off replacing the regulators until I have the right ones or can confirm what I have will do the job.

Wiring pin out for top lid

Because my QL has been acting up, I took the lid off. Luckily, I don't have a normal keyboard, so there was no risk of the membrane cracking up. However the joints on the IDE like cable that links the keyboard to the main board is going to need a resolder. But now to the point of my post, some Of th...

Re: Odd QL behaviour

Thanks rich, I believe it is. I've about 5 of these in a bag, was going to replace the regulator in my Speccy. Might replace the one on the QL.
