QL2K - Sinclair QL Emulator for Windows

QL2K Emulator in action QL2K is a freeware emulator written by Jimmy Montesinos and Raphael Zhou for Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/2003 and was based on the QLAY emulator by Jan Venema. It first appeared at the QL US Show 2003 with the kindness of Phoebus Dokos.

QL2K is aimed at new Windows machines such as Windows 2000 or Windows XP and has been successfully tested on Windows Millenium. QL2K is not a simple port, it provides extra features, including DirectX support and it tries to give a following to the Jan Venema development.

In the same spirit, although it is free of charge, registration is needed to build a community of users in order to promote further development by other people.and allow people to communicate about issues they find and help the development of the product.

QL2K is still in an early alpha version and debugging is in progress. Corrections are made as quickly as possible, and the latest alpha support English, French, Spanish, German, Italian and Greek.

The latest version has a new User Interface and gives the ability to configure these several settings :

  • Memory size ( 128 K, 256K, 384K, 512K, 640K, 896K ) as well as : ( 1M, 2M, 4M and 8M )
  • Screen size : 512x256, 512x341, 768x512, 1024x683, 1024x768, 1280x640, 1280x1024
  • Keyboard country (US, UK, FR, GE, IT)
  • Speed and Delay
  • Main ROM and 6 secondary expansion ROM.
  • Use of mouse.
  • ALT Key - the QL ALT is reassigned to the ALT-GR on the PC keyboard, as the PC ALT key is needed by Windows and the QL2K menu system.
  • Support for microdrives images (from MDV1_ to MDV8_) and WIN drives ( QLAY NFA ) (from WIN1_ to WIN8_)
  • DirectX ( DirectDraw ).

Any user who registers their copy can get a copy of Simon Goodwin's Speedscreen+ QL2K edition. (More information is supplied with your registration confirmation email).
