Re: MZ 700 - rear view

Still, without knowing where the connector is connected, you will only guess. It might be a (home built) interface board hidden under the cover. A Centronics interface is still not impossible. There were Centronics interfaces that had DB-25 on the computer side and Centronics on the printer side. /N...

Re: Detecting VBL on 800 in 700-mode

Are you sure the computer is set up for the right memory banking? Maybe the emulator have RAM all the way when entering 700-mode?

Re: STMZ800

I know, that is not a problem. The question is how accurate it is compared to a real MZ800. If most programs works it is worth some SMF soldering.

STMZ800

Has anyone here tested the STMZ800http://dzi.n.cz/8bit/stmz800/?
There are kits for it up on Ebay right now (not too expensive), but I'd like to know if someone has tested this earlier before I buy it.

Re: MZ-700: is there an easy way to get a modern video output?
