Re: QIMI interface repair

Actually one of my QIMI seems to work. Yay! Not the best solder work that I've ever seen but good enough apparently. Pin 40 of the ZX socket is cut under the board Ok thanks Marcel. One less thing to repair. Time to fire the soldering iron. I have little hope that it will work at the end of the day...

Re: QIMI interface repair

Thank you Marcel and Dilwyn for the PCB pictures, that is exactly what I was looking for. Chr$, if you ever open your Goldcard QL box, I would also be interested to have pictures of the populated board. For example my QIMI is missing the pin that goes into the top right ZX8302 socket hole. I have se...

QIMI interface repair

Hi, I am trying to repair a pretty beaten up QIMI interface. Some of the soldering is very ugly with solder bridges (intentional ???) missing pins etc. Before plugin it, I want to make sure everything is as it should be... Does anybody have a good hires picture of the top and, more importantly, the ...

Re: Idiot's Guide to Installing SMSQ/E - Needed!

I never understood what is the difference between the GoldCard_256colours and the Aurora SMSQ/E version as the only way the get 256 on a (super)goldcard is with an Aurora board.

I use the Aurora version with my Aurora QL, might try the 256 colors version one day.

Re: New Pointer Environment

We have one pending submission from HAOUI for WMAN that actually fully implements the WM.INDEX call. I'm of two hearts on this one, on one hand I'm really grateful that somebody other than Wolfgang or me submits code for the PE, on the other hand there is currently no use case for it. ... To be hon...

Re: Q68 QoE Ethernet Driver

Hi Martin, I have successfully installed your driver to my Q68. When started, everything initialize correctly. I am able to ping other computers on my local network and ping the Q68 from them. However I have not been successful of communicating with QPC on my laptop. I am pretty sure it is because ...

Re: Q68 QoE Ethernet Driver

This is great! I will try it over the x-mas break. Question: your implementation seems to use the Nx_ notation (N1_, N8_, etc) like the QL driver which is nice. Will I be able to use both QL net and Ethernet net at the same time ? i.e. a ethernet link from QPC to Q68 and a QL net link from SGC QL to...

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 Per, Hope you keep your site up and running for as long as possible. There is a lot of good stuff there. As you know, there are a lot of new QL users these past few months. Sure most of them just want to play games on bareboneQL but a few will eventually migrate to more capable systems and will w...
