Re: uQLx 2018a

For Pointer Environment, v2.01 works as far as I can tell from my testing. Your v1.39 must have a different code layout and uQlx doesn't have a patch for that, so maybe you should upgrade to v2.01 (later versions don't seem to work at all, Dilwyn also seems to have suffered this from comments on his...

Re: uQLx 2018a

Hi again, I have a new observation regarding window redraw (screen update). `uQLx' window's update is alright for zoom=1, when zoomed 2x, it sometimes trails black rectangles in the frame, when overlapped by some other windows, and after user brings it to front. I think all logic happens in `QL_Scr...

Re: uQLx 2018a

That will work as long as you use default screen size. The patch is for screen sizes AFAIK

Re: uQLx 2018a

Hi, Having used tge forked version of UQLX 2018a, which looks a little faster and it seems to run all the software I have. I added in TK2 223 which gives Level 2 device drivers, hard directories. I would like the ability to have the second screen enabled, maybe from a command line option. As far as...

If you didn't find it you are looking at this bit of code.

Re: uQLx 2018a

uQlx searches for a fixed sequence of bytes to detect PE from memory.

Its possible they older one does not have this sequence (or its just a bug).

Can you point me at exact download and Ill try and look at it, but Im off to Orkney at end of week so may take me a couple of weeks!

That version of the VM turned out to be significantly slower and unstable on modern glibc so I disabled it!

Re: uQLx 2018a

Are you running uQlx as a 64bit compile? (there are some other issues noted elsewhere in forum in 64bit) Did you compile the correct branch? (https://github.com/SinclairQL/uqlx-fork/tree/XorA/working-tree-64bit - this includes "fixes" even for 32bit) Its been a while since I tested with PE.

Re: Expanding the range of QL Adventures

I don't think this set of adventures have been done for QL yet (I could not find them on Dilwyn's page). The ScottAdams (not that one) adventure set and the ScottFree interpretor ported to QDOS. to run DATA_USE SFA1_ ex sfa1_ScottZX They type game number at prompt, 00-13 work normally, 14+ I wasnt q...
