Re: test_task won't copy to DOS4_ on QPC2

Thank you for the detailed explanation, Marcel. It addresses one of my concerns, that we may end up with a number of different solutions across different emulators and so on. While I understand what you say about the QemuLator method, at least QemuLator is pragmatic in that if you copy an executable...

Re: Text87plus4 and QPC2

Hi Norman, The Plus4 Patch program is still advertised on Bruce Nicholls's website http://www.ql-qvd.com/products.html - scroll down to utilities section. Means it's probably still available and you might also be able to get it from Jochen or Marcel if you ask them very nicely (a fistful of Euros us...

Re: test_task won't copy to DOS4_ on QPC2

Another method which can be useful purely for file transfer is to use the JOB2BAS program on my website. Converts executables into BASIC programs which survive passing through non-QDOSMS environments and rebuild themselves when run at the destination end. http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/arch/index.html 100 ...

Re: Q68 Advance Notice 3 - Release date

By a hospital stay, the public release of the Q68 board will probably be delayed by several weeks. Derek asked me to inform that the new estimated release date is 6th of November. On the positive side, this allows me to "polish" one or two features, do more testing, and write a little doc...

Re: QL ROM switcher

This is a good idea for a project, tetroid. I would suggest including these versions: JM ( fairly common in UK, useful for testing software, fairly similar to AH) JS (most common uk rom) MG - some of the most widely used national variants such as French/German), note that MGUK is a private non Sincl...

Re: Backups!

[Crying in his gin!] Sympathies Norman. Yes, i do remember Posso boxes and still have several of them full of disks. Although many of ...

Re: Scart to HDMI upscaler

That's because the QL's output is outside the standard for 4:3 TV scan lines. This is why there was a special monitor sold to complement the machine. We all know that, but some of these units can auto scale to show full 85 characters. One of my tv sets loses the usual couple of characters either si...
