Re: Giving away microdrives for clone to zip files for preservation

Yes, you are dead right, I realised now some of them are marked games for the ZX spectrum I had

Giving away microdrives for clone to zip files for preservation

Hello guys. I'm getting rid of my old swedish QL that has a problem with the microdrives. With it comes 30-35 microdrives with various software, amongst them 4matter, Locksmith, Cartridge Doctor, Tasword and some games and utilities.

Re: Copy a swedish ROM from an old QL for Qemulator

Typically I just have a basic QL with only microdrives and 128kB of RAM. Which makes it impossible to copy the unzip utility from a PC to a microdrive to run it on the QL. As I know the only way to transfer exe files from a QL to a PC without loosing the header file for it is to zip it on the QL and...

Re: Copy a swedish ROM from an old QL for Qemulator

Hi guys, I tried the following after doing a copy to the microdrive: copy_n mdv1_ql_swe to ser2i File went correctly sized and worked as a charm on the Qemulator. Not sure if Dilwyn wants this ROM, as the swedish ROM is not listed on his website or anywhere else on the web. Its listed as version 1S1...
