It's also mostly access to the required hardware. I was going to buy Jochen Hassler's SGC but so far he wasn't able to find it! :-( Hope it turns up in a box sometime. I do have a QXL that was kindly donated to me 10 years ago or so, but I don't really see much point in maintaining it. >> 1) SMSQ/E for Aurora does not read anymore DD floppy disks.

The latest I have found in a quick search is 2.93. I probably have older ones at least partly on some floppy discs. But the thing is 2.92 was the introduction of the Q40 and if I remember correctly this was such a major change in the sources that comapring 2.91 and 2.91 will not result in much more enlightnment. >> I guess it does not make sense to spend effort for SMSQ/E for QXL, but the >> issues on the GC/SGC/Aurora versions I think would deserve at least a try. > Both deserve a try, and both have already got a try from me, > unfortunately without success. I will help once I get my hands on the hardware, but this can take a while. And while I find the offers very kind I don't want to work on loaned hardware, sorry.
