The Quill by Gilsoft

Does anyone have a copy of the Quill adventure writer by Gilsoft?

Tim Gilberts (who ran Gilsoft) has been looking into this and found a version A03 copy. I myself only have version A00.

Tim asked if anyone has a later version than A03.

Re: New Membrane Malfunction

You might also find that the bubble mat is too dry to the touch - I have seen ones where you can press down one of the bubbles and actually see it pop back up after a short delay... I have lots of spare second hand bubble mats - but as Dave says, it is rare for them to fail - sometimes they need a g...

Re: New Membrane Malfunction

Actually, in my experience, the most common cause of no working keys at all is.......... a) a tiny sliver of the old membrane left in the bottom of the molex connector (the molex connector is what you push the membrane tails into). b) a dodgy molex connector. They tend to get bent over quite often a...

Re: Announcement - new QL Interface

Thanks again and for the picture. On the original QUBIDE interface, the bank of 5 jumpers is used to set the base address for the card. Is this still the case? If so, it suggests that the originally configured based address of 0c000h has been changed to e0000, which seems odd. Perhaps the jumpers m...

Re: Announcement - new QL Interface

Thanks. I don't have a copy of the new EPROM, though I infer from your earlier post that I can still do the firmware update and then test the QUBIDE, even with the old EPROM image. If so, are the jumper settings still correct? Yes you can still test the new firmware without updating the EPROM - but...

Re: Announcement - new QL Interface

I do have a couple of quick questions, if anyone is able to help: - I believe my QUBIDE device needs to be powered during the firmware upgrade? That is, I should plug the USB Blaster into header socket, reseat the QUBIDE interface in my QL and power up my QL, before attempting to upgrade the device...

Re: New QubATA driver for QUBIDE

If you have the more recent versions of Qubide (Spanish or Polish - especially the ones with memory expansion) they MAY not work anyway, as they are only able to use version 1 rom as far as I know. Yes, we believe so - although I have arranged for one of the Polish QubIDEs (with 512K RAM) to be sen...

Re: New QubATA driver for QUBIDE

Hi fellow QL'ers I have a "little" problem installing the new QubATA system, so I would really like to hear from users, who have installed QubATA. Regards Klaus There are three real questions: a) Are you trying to install it on an original QubIDE or one of the modern clones with added mem...

Re: The Future of the QL Wiki

OK sso the SBASIC/SuperBASIC Reference Manual online is safe as such for now (assuming the website keeps running!) Instead of concentrating on a specific website - people need to think more around what they would like to happen in say 10 or 20 years time - how people will find out about the Sinclair...
