Re: QL Tinkering

QL SuperBASIC The Definitive Handbook - Jan Jones page 66: "DATA statements themselves do not have any effect on normal execution. They may be put anywhere. It is most efficient, however, to put them at the very beginning of a program. This is because moving to a data item always starts from t...

Re: QL Tinkering

There are some tricks in SuperBASIC which can then help: Just a few minor updates to these excellent tips: a) Integer FOR loops are quicker (although they only work on Minerva and SMSQ/e) Both Turbo and Q-Liberator can also be made to use integer loop variables (see their respective manuals). The r...

Re: QL Tinkering

Welcome any reviews on Game and checks on my code where I might have screwed up, not having every platform to test the program on. It should Load and work on most although an original QL will need expanded memory. The QL2k emulator has a clock multiplier assuming x1 is equivalent to original QL har...

Re: Gigabasic

It works here on JS ROM in q-emulator using the supplied boot program and then LRUN flp1_sprite_gbs

Are you trying to use it with Minerva?

Do not use LRESPR to install the toolkit - as it looks as though the toolkit needs more memory than the mere file length...

Re: Hello From France

Welcome Dominique. If you have the MicroAPL - is it the keyword or symbolic version (the symbolic version needs to be uploaded to Dilwyn's site as both are now freeware). We also need the manual scanning in if possible... It would be interesting to know what other software you might have - you would...

Re: Aurora somewhere?

I guess the Aurora has been surpassed now by the Q68 (well until there are some more Super Gold Card clones)...

Don't forget that there is currently no source of SuperHermes either :(

Re: Gold Card boots in monitor mode

It is probably set up with AUTO_TK2F1

You can disable this with AUTO_DIS or use AUTO_TK2F2 - see https://superbasic-manual.readthedocs.i ... auto-tk2f2

Re: Prospero Fortran and C

Metacomco C remains subject to their copyright. I have tried reaching out to Peter Mackeonis (former Metacomco owner) a couple of times but get no response.

Re: Prospero Fortran and C

I had a quick look at the ROM dump - unfortunately it is the Metacomco C EPROM (v3.02) so nothing to do with Prospero.

From memory the QL does not show a banner for the Metacomco EPROMs - they are simply called as part of the compilation process (as a form of copy protection presumably)

You did not upload a dump of the ROM itself- can you do that and we could investigate it...
