Re: QPAC2, GWASS, SMSQ or QD - eRant!

Norm, It's sounding like QD is reverting to an older version of the file. Have you checked the file on disk and compared it with what is in QD? You can also try a different editor and see if the behavior changes. I don't think there is a way to do a checksum withing QD to verify that no changes were...

Re: SMSQzine #7 is now available

Sorry for taking so long to notice your update. I just checked ZXzine #1 and it downloaded fine for me. I'm using FireFox. I just clicked on the link and viewed it in Firefox.

Re: Hello from Venice, Florida

Glad to see more US QLers after many years of seeing them disappear. I'm on the West Coast (SF Bay Area) and have been active in the US QL community since I got my QL in April 1986.

Re: SMSQzine #7 is now available

Martin,

Were you able to download zip #5? Is the zip having issues opening? I did test the original zips to make sure they were all different and able to open.

Re: SMSQzine #7 is now available

Martin,

All of the files should not be there. I checked them all and made sure to upload any that were missing. I'm keeping track to see if the web service deletes any. I've tested all the zips and they are different and they all open for me (using build in unarchiver in Ubuntu).

Re: C68 Console

Tofro, Thanks. I was thinking that opening "CON_" was referring to the first console. If I use the default console, how do I convert that into a QDOS file handle? Or should I just open my own window (not open a default console) and go that route. I'll probably try that this evening and see...

C68 Console

I've written a test program to open a console in C68, write some test and draw a block. The console is 512x256, but I've noticed that the text and graphics are shifted to the left. I left in the end message "press any key" that keeps the window open and it's text is where I would expect it...

Re: Making QL Software More Accessible

I'm still in favor of QL zip files. Other versions of zip can read the QL zip files, so I can extract README files or other text files from the native OS. To use the software, I put the zip file in to a directory that is accessible by an emulator. Fire up the emulator and extract the zip file to RAM...
