Re: RE: QTYP

QTYP II is still commercial - I believe Jochen may still sell it.

I have 3 second hand copies of QTYP II for sale in original box - £10 plus postage.

Re: Voltage Regulator update?

It is funny that this question was raised and within minutes Tetroid had listed his own voltage regulator replacement on sellmyretro - https://www.sellmyretro.com/offer/details/28469

I wonder how that compares.

Re: vDrive ZX: emulated ZX Microdrive

The QL version listing is now live - https://www.sellmyretro.com/offer/details/28715 but not the vMap as yet - I have been using the vMap today without any issues so have been talking with Charlie - a few minor changes might be needed to the manual but not sure if he wanted to investigate some furth...

Re: vDrive ZX: emulated ZX Microdrive

Ahh! I was searching only for IDC/PCB Edge connectors - completely missed those two options on eBay. Good catch! Mind-you - I seem to have missed the actual vDrive auction - seems they went on sale on SMR around 3am this morning and by 9am, both auctions were already closed... Guess I'll need to wa...

Re: vDrive ZX: emulated ZX Microdrive

There are also made up ones available if people miss out on the kind offer above - I had one for my Spectrum and it works fine: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sinclair-ZX-Spectrum-Interface-1-to-Microdrive-Connection-cable-/222099647887?hash=item33b62bad8f:g:aa4AAOSwO~hXIJMl Too short to do the under th...

Re: Tetroid interfaces hardware info

It is indeed interesting - I must admit that when I had a QubIDE I no longer booted from microdrive so would not have noticed this behaviour. I do however, seem to recall the Miracle HD disk chained properly with the Trump Card - ie win1_boot, flp1_boot, mdv1_boot, but then I might be mistaken - it ...

Re: Tetroid interfaces hardware info

I realised last night that there is a slight oddity with the Tetroid interface. Bearing in mind its ROM is basically an amalamation of the QubIDE ROM and the Trump Card ROM, I would expect the boot order to work as win1_boot, flp1_boot and mdv1_boot However, if win1_boot and flp1_boot do not exist, ...

Re: Call SuperBASIC from M/C

I don't believe that you can under QDOS other than stuffing a string into the SuperBASIC command line (see EDLINE$ from DIY Toolkit). You could potentially use the multiple BASICs code in SMSQ/e and Mnerva (and even possibly the MultiBASIC code in DIY Toolkit) to generate a new instance of SuperBASI...

Re: vDrive ZX: emulated ZX Microdrive

I cannot se a mention of "only 128kb formatted SD". The web page rather says that one single emulated microdrive (that is, the image) can have a maximum size of 128kB - Which is a QDOS limit, not a device limit. Apparently, you can have as much images as you want on the SD card and map th...
