Hi

Thanks for replying (although I sent the question to the forum).

I have since got the Mister core to work with the second SD card.  My
problem was that I was using a new SDXC card, which apparently is not
supported. The problem now is that it constantly locks up. It is MUCH less
stable than the Q68 running Minerva, from the same QXL.WIN file (more or
less). I am wondering whether I might have the wrong ROM, or whether the
problem is with the Mister core itself.

hello Daniel

The Micro SD Card for the first  Slot = SD1
The Micro SD Card for the second Slot = SD2

i am using the original Micro SD (8 GB) as SD2
and a Sandisk Ultra Card (16 GB) as SD1

i presume your MIster is up to date

the most recent core is QL_2019092_rbf

rom
get the Distribution
https://www.sinclairql.net/downloads/THE_DISTRIBUTION.ZIP (4 GB)
goto to /qle/QL_SD folder
copy Minerva .bin to SD1 /QL/boot.rom
delete any existing QL.rom file on SD1

qxl.win
make a backup of SD2
format SD2 (FAT32)

go to /qle folder

Hello,

Thanks for your effort - I'm looking forward to playing the game. Text
adventure games have become extinct in recent years, and I kind of miss
them.

As for SMSQ/E, the game appears to work well on the Q68 at 512x256 in four
colours. In other solutions, the graphics are corrupted. On QPC2 at QL
resolutions and colour depth, the game runs but with corrupted graphics.

Hi,

just in case not everyone is on the QL forum, there is an exciting new
software development underway. "The Pawn"  and other "Magnetic Scroll"
games are back. And this time not just text but with graphics! The first
supported machine is the Q68, executables are already downloadable, on

Work for other platforms, even the BBQL, is ongoing. Definitely worth a

if you need more use this

careful with menu_rext pre 8.04
the string length (name$(nr)="1234567890")
must not exceed the the given length

otherwise your system will crash
