Re: PCML Q+ Disk interface ram fitted or not?

Hi,

Most PCML interfaces had 256Kb of ram, from the blurrly photograph, the memory chips look to be 256 chips.

You always put the interface into a QL with Minerva installed, which tell you how ram the system holds.

Re: PCML Q+ Disk interface ram fitted or not?

Hi,

You could load Toolkit 2 and use the FREE_MEM function. Or upload a photograph with the cover off.

Then copy the FLP/MDV images to a QWA partion and use FDI/MDI to ,ount the images as drives. You could also leave the image file on the FAT par...

Re: New (old) game: Rockfall

Please let me know if it works, what your operating system and emulator is. If anyone can convert it to an .mdv file for me I'd be grateful as I'd like to try it on the MiSTer hardware emulator. Hi Tuna, I downloaded both Rockfall files, I tried the WIN file on QEMulator running MInerva v1.98 Runni...

Re: Q68 Ethernet

Hi, You do not need a Serial Card, a USB - Serial adapter and a use a Null Modem lead to connect thePC to Q68. The Q68 does not have any hardware flow control. So you need to software flow control. I would not use Kermit, the QL implementation is not too good. Use QTPI on the Q68 side and any Termin...

Re: Q68 Ethernet

Derek, Could the soQL allow file transfer between PC / Q68? Whopper Hi, soQL could be used on the Q68 Serial port.

Re: Floppy Drive inside Microdrive Slot

Hi, Back in the bad old days when the fastest expansion was a Trump Card, a friend did this. He added a 3.5" floppy drive to his QL. The drive was fitted at the end of the QL above the reset switch. Which meant cutting the QL case to accomodate the 3.5" flopply drive. The drive needed an e...

Re: Perfection Status

Hi,

I think the point I am trying to make, is someone that has not legally purchased a copy of Perfection, can download and run the word processor.
