Re: 700 Euros for a boxed QL \o/

The only thing that can stop the continuous price rise would be the appearance of a QL motherboard clone and a QL keyboard clone. (As is happening on other platforms). Years ago there was an overvaluation of the Gold Card and Super Gold Card. After Tetroid manufactured their clones, prices stabilize...

Re: QL-SD

I have voted for option 2 and option 1 (in that order). I think the rom port option is more comfortable if you have some QLs, it also does not require opening or manipulating Inside the computer. (Another reason for me is that I already have the internal version ... ;) ...).

Re: Boot Q68 without monitor and keyboard

The "Q Zero" is a tiny QL compatible computer in a sub-RaspberryPi Zero form factor. It has most of the Q68 features, but with some omissions and some additions. It is meant as a space + cost saving "embedded" board, so it has no fullsize connectors on it, just pin headers. In y...

Re: SMSQ/E 3.36

Could you help by translating the messages into Spanish? I could do it with google translate but I'm afraid it would be a disaster Hi Giodgio, of course! I can help you with those translations. In Spain there is a small group of QL enthusiasts who will be happy to help with any Spanish translations...

Re: SMSQ/E 3.36

My programs require with every language ..... except Spanish (because it has just arrived) The problem is that they are distributed with a setting that allows them to work automatically in the language of the operating system. Still missing, the Spaniard looks for the file that contains all the mes...

Re: Boot Q68 without monitor and keyboard

Just detach them and boot the Q68. No idea what problems people are seeing here. Hi Peter, you're right, I just tried it again and everything is fine. SMSQE starts even if there is no keyboard and vga. Excuse me, I don't know what happened to me. In the past I thought that the keyboard and VGA were...

Re: Boot Q68 without monitor and keyboard

Hi guys, thanks.

The old keyboard or the switch box could be affordable options. About the little PIC, ... ufff .... I don't have the skills to design that solution (although it would be the best option for me).

Best regards.

Re: SMSQ/E 3.36

Problem identified with the help of Derek (and Giorgio). Now I have my SMSQE 3.36 with Q68 system working with QTImage. The problem was that I had defined language 34 (Spanish language, ES) in the SMSQE configuration (Q68_SMSQ config). That is new in SMSQ/E 3.36 version. With that configuration QTIm...

Re: Boot Q68 without monitor and keyboard

Hi, Martin. Thanks for the answer. I just tried it and indeed, no monitor need be attached. I could "simulate" the presence of a keyboard by plugging a ps2 mouse into the keyboard socket? That could damage my Q68? ( It would be great if Q68 could boot without a keyboard, ... only in "...
