Re: MZ-80B software

Considering what I remember of the flyers that were made back in the days ( I worked at the Swedish distributor of Sharp equipment in Sweden between semesters while in school once) the MZ-80B looked to be much more directed to the business segment than the home segment. Since the computer was releas...

Re: MZ-80B software

The MZ-80B was a sidestep from the serie. MZ-80K, MZ-80A and MZ-700 are in many parts compatible to each others. Programs written for MZ-80K will run on the other computers in many cases. I have run MZ-80K assembler/editor/linker written for MZ-80K (The Sharp official version) on a MZ-700. For that ...

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?
