Re: Make SMSQmulator High Graphics compactble

Hmm - that is interesting - the screenshot shows SMSQmulator running in hi-res graphics. QWord is not running - it is struggling to identify the graphics mode. Does SMSQmulator report the mode as MODE 32 (a la QPC2), or MODE 33 (a la Q40) - it might need configuring. It could also be that it is stru...

Re: Wanted: Issue 7 QL PCB.

I'll take it. If it works, great, if not, that's my second preference. Do you have a spare Issue 5 there too? Mine's getting cranky (also memory) and though I would get it later, if it would save a bit to ship it at the same time, I'll do it. Out of the 3 issue 5 PCBs I have, one has a memory fault...

Re: Wanted: Issue 7 QL PCB.

I have just come across another issue 7 motherboard - not sure if it works, but I am sure we can work something out - as you can always fix it if it is memory..

Do you just need the bare motherboard? £35 tested (if working) plus postage. £25 plus postage untested / not working

OK, best place to get my motherboard repaired? Does anyone have a fully
functional issue 5 spare?


I have 3 x Issue 5 motherboards - one has the JM ROM chips piggybacked, but I would need to test them all. None have microdrive units, but I guess that does not matter. £30 each plus postage :)

Re: Status of QMON

Freddy Vaccha, who was the owner of Digital Precision Limited, has confirmed that when the company ceased trading, copyright in all of its programs reverted to the original authors. So it is up to Tony Tebby whether he will release QMON II as freeware. All it takes is for someone to bother to email ...

Re: What video display do you use?

I'm curious. Have not seen a way to legally get around paying the fee. Implementing content protection reduces the fee, but still not affordable. I don't know whether the Spectrum Next has managed to get around paying the fee - but there is always the chance that they would forego it if you approac...

Re: Status of QMON

Any update on the status of QMON? As to their websites, I can see neither Jochen Merz nor RWAP selling it. Jochen's site is hopeless for listing what he has the rights to sell. I've never had the rights to sell QMON (or any of the other QJUMP software) - there are various bits of stuff sold by QJUM...

Both Adrian and Ian (Liberation Software Limited) have now agreed that all of their products - QLiberator, QLOAD and QREF can now be released...

Re: Printing from, e.g., Quill "Print"

If you are printing from within Xchange - check which device is set as the default - from the main Xchange Menu - F3 S D You need to have a printer driver in that device (filename is xchange_dat). You can set up the default printer parameters for that default driver using chooseprinter_bas or pedit_...
