QubATA

Hi, I have a Tetroid Trump Card with CF Card interface, which has QubATA v3.08, which has 2 x 256MB partitions on a 1GB CF Card. Leaving space for additional partitions. The system works well on a Minerva v1.98 QL. I decided to upgrade to QuATA v3.10, so I programmed a new EEPROM, on boot up the new...

Re: Unable to format microdrives

Evening! So the diodes were D17 D28 and D16. I also replaced TR3 TT4, TR5, TR6 and TR7. Some of those are for MDV2 so may not apply to you but probably won’t harm to replace them! I’m still baffled why my other QL is wonky but I may just give up on it for now! Hi, Are you able to measure the compon...

Re: Assembler Worbench Maual

Hi, As I said, I have read all the documentation in the downloadable files. The manual_txt file in the Quanta Talent Assembler Workbench v2.2 does not gives much in the way of configuration, there is mention of FCOM files which configure the programme. I suppose setup FCOM could be passed in the com...

Re: QD SBASIC Parser Thing

Is QBASIC a compiler or just another BASIC interpreter for the QL? Sorry for assuming that wpeveryone knows what QBASIC is, which is a Thing that can parse a SBASIC file from QD calling the SBASIC Interpreter and compile the programme with Qliberator. QD includes SBAS/QD which allows SBASIC source ...

Assembler Worbench Maual

Hi, I have been trying to use the Quanta Talent Assembler Work Bench, for assembley language programming. I have read the documentation that came with the Quanta Assembler, which is hinting at the configuration of the system and looking at the v1.3 and v1.4 updates of Assembler Workbench files, ther...

Re: Comparing Sinclair QL to Commodore 64

Imagine SMSQ/E fully incarnated into the Amiga hardware! Mmm. Should be possible, It works on the Atari (native WIN, native screen). HI Per, What sort of Amiga? Also bear in mind, that a Raspberry PI with Amiga emulator, out performs all Amiga hardware. So how about a SMSQ/E implementation on the R...

Re: Power supply connector

Hi derek, I could do a quick STL file to give some sort of solution for this. If you are doing an STL file, the holes are 3 mm from the base of the plug in section. I forgot to put that somewhat important measurement on the diagram. Cheers, Norm. I do seem to a little time at present, I can do a 3D...

Re: Comparing Sinclair QL to Commodore 64

Hi, I always wondered about the Atari SMSQ/E implementation, as the QVME Card had hardware support in the operating system. But not the Atari custom chips. I suppose this the problem with the way Tony Tebby dictated the way SMSQ/E should be written. He could not do everything. There really should be...

Re: Q68 Serial devices

It will take some time to test with more devices, since Derek sold his own Q68 and now has nothing for himself. I have some new Q68 PCBs on order, which I will have at least one for myself. I thought it best for more Q68 coverage, rather possibly missing out on giving someone the opportunity to use...
