Re: ¡ Hola amigos !

Another good reason to be here is that after some time in storage one of the keys of my cherished QL was lost :cry: (left cursor key to be specific). I've been searching the web for a spare key but no luck. Maybe I can find it with the help of the forum. I have spare key tops - although it is proba...

Re: XTC68 C Cross compiler

I have moved your changes over - probably an easier way to do it, but I don't know too much about Github - I am just one of the administrators for SinclairQL.

You could of course be a contributor to https://github.com/SinclairQL/xtc68 - I guess you could have created your own pull request?

Re: SMSQzine Issue #6

The XUA was having an improved Archive replacement written for MSDOS and UNIX called ARCPLUS. I have part of one of their newsletters specifying the program and its commands. It's not far off a user manual. I don't know if it was ever finished, But the notes I have is for Release 0.82 5th February ...

Re: Replacement Key switches for a SPEM keyboard

Could you post a picture? I wonder if they are that different from standard QL key pillars?

Re: USB Floppy Disk Device (Drive) with Support for Windows 10 and QPC2?

Hi Rich, Used your suggested DD format, as amended by Dilwyn but Windows 7 still does not like the disk. This might be down to the actual USB drive. I have a FreeCom USB drive bought from Scan a few years ago. That error is peculiar - is QPC2 or q-emulator open and trying to access the disk when yo...

Re: USB Floppy Disk Device (Drive) with Support for Windows 10 and QPC2?

Just a slight comment on Dilwyn's notes which closely reflect my own findings. If you take a DD disk and format it on the QL, providing QPC2 or q-emulator recognises it, then you can happily write files to that disk and use it on the QL without issue. However, as Dilwyn found, formatting the disk on...

Re: USB Floppy Disk Device (Drive) with Support for Windows 10 and QPC2?

Windows 7 does not support access to QDOS DD 720k disks via a USB floppy disk drive to QPC2, so it is unlikely that Windows 10 will, HD 1.44MB QDOS floppy disks via a USB floppy disk drive are supported in Windows 7. Not having Windows 10 I cannot test that. I beg to differ - I use a USB floppy dis...

I think I noticed this, but then found the QPC2 was sat in the notifications bar in bottom right... Not seen it recently though...

Re: Proposal about the file system

I try to explain it with a simple example: I am a hypothetical QL user and I have been using the HARDBACK program for 5 years. I read about the WINBACK program and decide to try it. I unload it, install it and make a backup. For some reason I decide that I do not like it and I want to continue usin...
