Yes, of course, but your existing one is newer - March '88. In my version there is 3/7/87 in a REM statement.

Re: QL Radar (QL World mdv exchange no.58)

Excellent - do you know how it differs from the version on Dilwyn's site? Mine is 'set' in the UK and the other version is in Saudi Arabia 'in a war zone'. The one from the QL World cart has 2 parts and I think in the other one they may have been combined somehow. The QL World version says you shou...

QL Radar (QL World mdv exchange no.58)

Here's another title that was part of the QL World Microdrive Exchange (no.58). Part of it was also a type-in from the March 1988 issue: http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/mags/qluserworld/QLWorld_1988-03.PDF It is by Nigel Ford and seems to be the predecessor to 'Radar' which is shared on Dilwyn's page, here:...

I had two QLs way back when, but little money. Now I am running uqlx on Linux mint and remembering times gone by. I found that like rid...

Re: Hello from France

Hi Chr$, Hi Derek, The TDI seems to be a nice extension, exactly what I expected. I will watch Tetroid comeback on Sellmyretro. The membrane is allready ordered with other stuff but this time from Retrocables in Spain. I have the metal plate. Only the screws are missing. For the case I need also on...

Re: Hello from France

Thank you for your welcome. My QL is a QWERTY one. The serial number is D09-022755 (I don't know if it is significant). So yesterday, I checked the PSU, no problem, then I plugged the QL on my TV in UHF. The orange LED light on and I search for a display. In automatic search, my TV found a good ima...

Re: Qsquidge

If you look at QL World 1987 October, pages 48-51, the Superbasic listing is shown. The SCR file is probably saved afterwards, but is setup by the programme. All done. Retyped the corrupt program lines, retyped the corrupt _doc (from the info in QL Word - it was the same) and touched up and re-save...

Weld it up all you like, it'll still never be a Triumph ;)

(actually I never understood the MG/Triumph rivalry. They're all perfectly good British 1960/70s cars).

Re: Qsquidge

Couldn't you recover the loading screen for the SuperBasic one from the SuperCharged version? Does it draw the same screen? They both share the same _scr file, but it's actually not that bad, it appears on screen with slight corruption, then crashes. I've already saved the screen with lbytes and wi...
