Re: QD Hyperhelp

I never liked the Tab compression. I dont like it either. Bloody nuisance. Many of the SMSQ/E source files are thus compressed, and unless you have tab compression set in QD you get the unreadable compressed version when you load them. For some of those files you actually NEED tab compression or th...

Re: Knoware.no

Hi Per, Excellent programme, the manual is well written. Thanks! You actually read the manual?! Gosh, what a bunch of nerds we are.. ;) I altered my Fileinfo2 config, to add QV. I usually use the Fileinfo2 PIC Viewer to display PIC files. But it only knows about the specific graphics format of thd ...

Re: Knoware.no

Hi Dilwyn, Thanks a lot for your valuable feedback! It always amazes me how very different my homely programs work in other people's environment, despite my best efforts: <>I take it the fact that both versions complain about the lack of Wolfgang's BMP extensions is that as hinted in the manual, it'...

I should not have downloaded your game Qombi. Now the release of Blackknight V2 will probably be postponed by a year or so.

Still, Im glad you liked it :)
PS: At the risk of slowing down my own software production, where might I find Blackknight?

Re: Knoware.no

Ive now added QV/QuickView back to Knoware.no. Great(?) for viewing many graphic file formats on SMSQ/E + GD2 capable systems. Preferably fast CPUs & large screens, also ok for viewing typical QL -type and -sized graphics on Q68 (eg disp mode 3) and better. Note: This is not a finished product, ...

Re: Knoware.no

Hi, I thought about what you have said, I agree i principle, but I want to use real QL hardware, not emulators. Sure, me too, ideally. My Core i7 Laptop ru s everything, but is an emulation system. If the Q68 is too slow in High Colour/Resolution modds, what real hardwre do I use? Looks like back t...

Re: Knoware.no

But once it becameclear that sending official letters printed in monospace courier was considered "odd" (like some Unabomber hiding out in the hills somewhere - a potential threat to national security!) I felt I had no choice but to succumb to brute PC. Well, not really. Tony Tebby has wr...

<> It's a tough call but I support Fabrizio's sentiment to keep it going. I've been immersed in a bunch of project with an audience of a few but have had fun with it.

Re: Knoware.no

Nooo, please don't do it, your program are always a source of inspiration for me like a good painting. I appreciate all your program and I use them! I know, a lot of new users are coming back that use bare BBQL for mainly retro-computing but some other 'QL Users" exists like me that believe QL...

Re: Knoware.no

I do take you point on the manipulation of jpeg files, but this does not seem a priority for me at present. Fair enough, only I think its a nice feature to be able to view many kinds of files one might happen upon - just like on a normal computer. QV tries to cope with as many graphics file formats...
