Re: SMSQ/2 on Atari

Hi Per, I did get the emulator reading QWA files usingbthe TT mode in tge System option. I dont understand how thats possible. I'll have to try it some day. But, I think eithout any colour, it is not as good as other emulators. I only want to use it for testing certain software in mono mode. As I h...

Re: SMSQ/2 on Atari

Hi Derek, Thanks for that. As I described, I had SMSQ/E up and running last time I tried. The object of the exercize today was to set up a QLWA disk inside the Atari virtual disk, but for some reason SMSQ/E didnt start up at all. I'll try some more next week, perhaps, if the spirit moves me. No need...

Re: SMSQ/2 on Atari

I thought Id have a wee fiddle after all, and so spent a fruitless hour gaining nothing but (painful) experience: I set up the Hatari virtual hard disk and copied what remains of my old setup to it. Everything seemed fine, even Calamus loaded and ran, but SMSQE337 would not boot. It hung forever on ...

Re: SMSQ/2 on Atari

Derek, I believe I used to know this stuff, but it is now so long ago, I dont remember the details any more. IIRC you need to create a suitable partition table on the hard disk first. I seem to recall using a version of a program called fdisk for this. The partition table is located in sector 0 of t...

Re: SMSQ/2 on Atari

I guess the "proper" way to do this would be to take the Atari virtual hard disk and partition that with fdisk to create the required QLWA partitions. Getting the stuff over from a QXL.WIN system after that could be a fiddly job, as it would require an intermediate medium both sides can ta...

Yes, looks hot, eh ;) How did you get it to read a .win file, though?

Sorry, I made a mistake in the message, I could not read the hard drive QWA file.
Pity. I dont have time to try to figure it out myself right now.

Re: SMSQ/2 on Atari

I cant remember the many different modes, but for example, you could run Atari programs like Calamus (DTP) in hicolor on an ordinary non-Atari monitor. More than MODE 4 isn't possible with QVME (as Edwin Holtmann said), because of the QVME hardware. The QVME Atari driver disk, Jochen supplied, is f...

Re: SMSQ/2 on Atari

Hi, I tried a QVME on a TT030, which worked okay only Mode 4 colours. Compared to the Q68, which can do 1024x768 Mode 4, looks the same. You may need additional drivers. Its complicated. You had to choose the right driver for your monitor and for the different modes. If you got it wrong, youd go bl...
