Re: The Future of the QL Wiki

We should probably stop worrying about what is in effect a 10 minute automation task and actually concentrate on the actual issue and that is keeping the info online. Some of it can be automated - images etc can't :( Remember I started this discussion in February - yet where are the mirrors of the ...

Re: The Future of the QL Wiki

It is a similar issue with Dilwyn's site in that all of the URLs would need to be re-written if the Sinclair QL Homepage is no longer hosted at dilwyn.me.uk Actually, when I hastily moved dilwyn.me.uk to greybeardz.com I was pleasantly surprised how few absolute urls there turned out to be, as I ha...

Re: The Future of the QL Wiki

I have just recently added and updated information on the QL wiki in the last few weeks. I am willing to host it, if that is what is needed to keep it up and running. I am able to maintain an installed and working copy of it, but I do not have the skills to install the code. I tried before and fail...

Re: The Future of the QL Wiki

Time is passing and there seems to be no agreement as to the best way forward for this. Urs' QLvsJaguar site is currently only partly working, so that is another important QL resource which is currently not available, along with the QL Homepage. No-one is adding information to the QL Wiki and I have...

Re: Pipes Game

Thankfully, I have got a copy of this in my preserved folders - Derek - you refer to it as Quzel (I think) in an old message board entry. It is called Bobs Pipes according to the filename. I have emailed Jochen to see if he can clarify the copyright position on this and other titles I have in my pre...

Re: Pipes Game

Bob Weekes wrote a pipes game which was sold by Jochen Merz Software a while back. I'm afraid I can't even remember the title - maybe it was just "Bob's Pipes" or similar. It might be worth Simon contacting Jochen to see if he still has copies. I don't recall that program :o I keep asking...

Re: Still possible to get Minerva ROM

The adaptor is needed to fix the adress decoding for a 64kb EPROM. In my old QLs we actually did the same by clueing an SMD NAND chip on top of the EPROM plus some flying wires. Or you can for example buy the QL-SD interface, it also comes with a daugther board that does the same, so that's a plug'...

Re: Pipes Game

Hmm - looking at the Sinclair QL Homepage - it looks like this is one type of game which has never been written for the QL. Now there is a nice challenge for all those who moan about the lack of free downloadable games for the QL. Instead of trying to get all of the old copyright stuff for free, the...

Re: QDT Freeware version

Is it worth asking Jim whether he will release the source code to QDT or maybe ask if he can perform some more work? I asked a year or so ago - he was loathe to release the source code because it was 'in a bit of a mess'. I am no longer involved in contacting software authors / copyright holders be...

Re: QDT Freeware version

We really do need the source code for QDT :( I have just found a bug, in trying to get Q-Route to run from a QDT folder. Q-Route is installed to win1_PRG_QROUTE_ If I set the parameter to win1_MAPS_BIG_BRITAIN.MAP, then press ESC and then click on the icon, the program automatically loads the Big Br...
