F-keys

QL systems normally make extensive use of the function keys (F1-F5, and F6 onwards on emulators). Modern laptops tend to come supplied with an 'fn' key which you have to press to get F1 to F12 (the 'function' keys having been promoted to multimedia keys such as volume up/down, track skip and so on. ...

QL World magazine scans

Thanks to the hard work of Klaus Frank in Denmark, I've been able to add further scanned copies of QL World magazine to the Magazines Page on the QL Home Page. This means we now have a pretty complete collection of the PDFs up to the end of 1991. http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/mags/index.html

Re: UNZIP problem

I have just tried the command on QPC2, that works. I use Unzip version 5.32 I'm assuming that the copy of Unzip is really in ram1_ and the zip file is also where the command says it is. Hopefully, the zip file has a '_' before the extension, not a '.' On some systems, there should be no space betwee...

Re: DATA_USE

In the sources for Q-Trans, I have a little note that in versions of SMSQ/E prior to v2.99, there was a little funny in that FNAME$ applied to a DOS directory name didn't work - it was me who reported it to Marcel at the time. According to the note, this was QPC2 v3.03 and earlier. Probably far enou...

Re: DATA_USE

A quick&dirty little sketch of how you can find the parent directory: 100 MAKE_DIR ram1_test 110 MAKE_DIR ram1_test_abc_xyz 120 dir$ = "ram1_test_abc_xyz" 130 : 140 FOR i = LEN(dir$) TO 5 STEP -1 150 IF dir$(i) = "_" THEN 160 IF FTEST(dir$(1 TO i)) = 0 THEN 170 IF FTYP(\dir$...

SMSQ/E

Can anyone remind me why SMSQ/E needs minimum Gold Card on QL?

Re: ql superbomber and m-crunch

Thanks Martin, that's another method which can work with the majority of systems which have enough memory and, as you say, software which is not copy-protected.

Hope someone, somewhere is keeping a record of all these methods for running older programs on modern systems!

Well, it was from Talent, and some of RWAP's games box sets on SellMyRetro.com have Talent programs. I don't see SuperBomber among them, may be worth asking RWAP if he has any plans to add SuperBomber.

Maybe it's more of a problem getting permission to re-release it?
