Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

Dilwyn,
agree the headers are a nuisance, especially to unexperienced users. I never understood why the Q-Emulator header format did not place a branch over its added header to the real start of the code which would really simplify matters. Probably too late now, however.

Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

Sounds a bit like the experience I once had with a (very) fake Chinese SD card. Did you check another card?

Re: Resident QLib Jobs

That is a known problem on SMSQ/E that QLib free running PROCedures won't work (which apparently boils down to the same thing)

Not sure what the reason is, however.

Re: Composite cable SPECTRUM 128

Actually, its a mess: If you are referring to a "Toastrack" (original Sinclair 128) model, the cable is nearly identical. A Toastrack video cable can be used for the QL if you unsolder pin 3 (the Toastrack's "BRIGHT" output) which carries monochrome composite on the QL. In most c...

Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

pjw - Thanks for the EasyPtr tip ! I will download it it and read the manuals. I have a QL+SGC + QL-SD (but I have some very strange an unexplained issues with the QL-SD :cry: ) What version of QL-SD do you have? The original one was never working properly with the SGC, while Marcel's version of th...

Re: UNZIP problem

The Habi editor has a checkbox "Options"->"Headers"->"Extract" I'm pretty sure both "Extract" and "QL" need to be checked when moving a file from the PC to the QL file system and unchecked when transferring the other way round. You should play with t...

Re: Is it possible to get a list of all (normal) device drivers?

Peter, I also cannot see an obvious way, just a kludge: If you spend a bit of time ;) , you can maybe do it the same way QDOS does it: The list of possible permutations of max. 4 * 26 characters, an optional number, and an underscore seems manageable. Trying to FOPEN all possible permutations and co...

Re: Q68 Ethernet

Another well-working method is to use QPC2 and mount the SD card file system from there, which gives you native-to-native transfer (without any chance to lose file headers) Tobias Thanks Tobias, I usually use QemuLator, I suppose I'll have to learn QPC2 as well now. :? Whopper The second method pro...

Re: Q68 Ethernet

Hi, the most established method of getting files to and from a Q68 from a PC is to use QXLWinReader by Wolfgang which allows to read and write to a Q68 (or QL-SD, for that matter) SD card directly from a PC (that's why you have 2 slots for SD cards on your Q68) Another well-working method is to use ...

Re: SMSQmulator v2.27 bug, perhaps?

QPC2 => 68020

SMSQMulator => 68000?

I thought SMSQMulator emulates a 68000 CPU - Why does GWASS even run (sortof)?
