Yes "this" is the Vega+ which seems to be a disaster zone!

Re: C68 4k Buffers on Stack SMSq/e

What's the dataspace you have given to that job? Whatever C68 said it was in the Xtcc field What's the value of the global variable _stack (that's the stack size given to your job, and default is 2kBytes only)? That would certainly explain the problem as the stack of the program is certainly well o...

C68 4k Buffers on Stack SMSq/e

Are there any known issues with the combo in the topic? Trying to debug a difference in behaviour in a program between Qemulator and QPC2 and narrowed it down to a 4k buffer as a local variable which seems to be corrupting something to do with file handling. When I move the buffer to a global variab...

Proof Q68 is the Awesomes

So there was some friendly banter about Q68 beating SpeccyNext to your doorstep, well SpeccyNext was only a 170K$ project. This 500K GBP project is now years late and is likely to never deliver. https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/12/13/retro_computers_ltd_internal_brouhaha/ So congrats to Peter and ...

Re: TerribleFire accelerator for the QL accelerator card

TerribleFire is basically the equivalent of an SGC. Tetroid already said he was looking at a new version of SGC. Dave Park also looked at something similar to the TerribleFire not based on the SGC design. This stuff is easier on the Amiga because its OS is already aware of expansion buses with detec...

Re: I, Zarchos, have a major announcement that will

I had strange mixed reactions when posting on other retro forums, strangely. Still do not understand what they would expect more from me, on the very same day I have the keys. Well don't forget UK has two retro museums (maybe three) and a lot of forum dudes either love/hate the existing ones becaus...
