Re: Testing for installed TURBO

Hi Lee, Looking at my boot file for SMSQmualtor/QPC2/Q-EMulator, I use this If clause: 1300 REMark Load Turbo Toolkit 1310 IF VER$=="HBA" 1320 LRESPR "WIN1_TURBO_SMS_CODE" 1330 ELSE 1340 LRESPR "WIN1_TURBO_TK_CODE" 1350 END IF Seems to work for QDOS and SMSQ/E. But I g...

Re: Testing for installed TURBO

Hi, There is a keyword: TK_VER$, but only returns the version of Turbo Toolkit, which is the same for the SMS and QDOS versions. A simple way would be to add "SMS" in the version number. Which would mean a new version of Turbo Toolkit. The SMS version calls the SMSQ/E extended traps, wher...

Hi community, I have searched for this on the forum but cannot find an entry but I am sure this has been asked before. I currently test for the presence of the HBA ROM in a boot program using VER$ and would like to test for other toolkits, specifically the TURBO toolkit. Is there a way to do this au...

I took Andy Owen's ManicMiner BlitzBasic version (I did receive permission back then - have to find t...

Beep Command in SMSQ/e and QemuLator

Struggling with some graphic differences between the QL and the SMSQ version in QemuLator which have been briefly explored here and a future QUANTA article, I decided to run the identical program in both QPC2 version 4 and the SMSQ patched version of QemuLator. Aspect ration being the most obvious d...
