uQLx 2017

A newly revised version of the Linux QL emulator uQLx (uQLx 2017) is now available.

Graeme Gregory has “brutalised” (as he puts it on github) the sources to bring them up to date. New binaries are available for 32- and 64-bit x86 systems, as well as ARM (6/7/8). Includes binaries ready to run.

Includes documentation from Timothy Swenson to get you started along with a small QXL.win file.

The binaries are available to download from the emulators page on my website


while the sources are available from the Sinclair QL Github at


The sources are available from my website too in case of difficulty, but I recommend you get them from the github repository to make sure you get the latest sources.

“Re: QL Emulation • UQLX with BDI / QL-SD support

I should have eliminated the last remaining bugs today, so UQLX is now the second QL emulator, after Qemulator, which can handle QL-SD filesystem images.

I have no idea when Richard [Zidlicky]  will release it. If someone already needs the feature, please feel free to contact me by personal email.

The trick is that the emulator just implements simple “Block Device Image” (BDI) support. Which are a few registers, allowing the QL side to access the image file on the PC. The real driver is then running native.

It is essentially the same driver as the one on the real QL, minus the FAT32, SDHC and hardware specific portions.”
