Re: QL on MIST FPGA board

Hi Urs,

nice video and the machine works really well. With the SD driver it makes real sense. It would be great if (S)GC Card and high resolution graphic modes could be implemented. Seen that it has taken only a week to get the QL core going this should be possible ...?

Re: QL on MIST FPGA board

Regarding file transfer: as there is the arm chip doing interface and drivers stuff couldn't files be transfered by a network protocol from a file server (FTP?)?

Re: QL on MIST FPGA board

Is an implementation of (super) Hemes usefull? GD 2 compatibility would be a dream.

Re: QL on MIST FPGA board

A single-glance, rough check says: Should fit. But: The microdrives are mapped to the SD-Card slot, keyboard and mouse are USB, all the connectors would be in the wrong places and need re-wiring. (And the QL takes up much more desk space than the tiny neat MiST box). And you would have to solve the...

Re: QL on MIST FPGA board

... forgot to ask if it would be possible to place the MiST Board into the original QL case?

Re: QL on MIST FPGA board

One single implementation would be capable of having both a low end QL with only 128k and micro drive as well as a High-End 68020-based box with Hi-Res Multicolor Graphics. Judging from the amount of people giving feedback here, I do, however not see a lot of interest...... (Please, guys, prove me ...

Re: ZX-TEAM Meeting 2015 Mahlerts, Germany

Great. Some news from the German hardware development side? Or in general?
