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?

What about a composite video to HDMI converter?
It seems that the price is not to high, and no changes needed to be done to the computer.

Re: Sharp Applications tape?

It was almost 35 years ago I had access to a MZ-80K last time, but I think there was a cassette with some demos delivered with it. One was a "Graphical" demo ending with a rotating globe. I could remember wrong, but I do know I saw the rotating globe on some Sharp with low res graphics. /UncleBod MZ...

Re: Not so shiny new MZ

IIRC my MZ-700 was what you call off white. I remember it having a slight yellowish touch in the case.

Re: MZ-700 + MZ-1U06 Help needed

The second card seems to be an MZ-1E05 for interfacing a floppy disk drive. The ROM seems to be modded to get two different ROM contents. The strange thing is that neither the layout nor the amount of chips on the board fits with the pictures I've found of MZ-1E05, and one of the pictures is from h...

Re: MZ-700 + MZ-1U06 Help needed

So far no luck on the net. A bit strange if it doesn't have a Sharp part number on. Due to the marking on the ROM and the switch I'd guess it is a FD interface. A dump of the ROM might help to identify it if everything else fails. It could of cause be a pre series board or a board that isn't for the...

Re: Not so shiny new MZ

I think it was two of the Swedish letters that swapped place. Long time since I had the computer at hand now. The CG rom might also be special. The high part (the one that wasn't very well documented in the manual) had other characters in the Swedish version. Large letters made for the Swedish Telet...
