Re: EmuZ (Emulator for multiple MZ systems MZ80A-B-K/700/800/1200/1500)

Interesting, which tapes do you have? Haven't checked them yet, most of the tapes are copies and only identified with a number in a MZ80 identified box but that doesn't mean a lot. It is a bit of a unorganized mess and I have no idea what is on them. Two commercial tapes that I have pulled out of o...

Re: EmuZ (Emulator for multiple MZ systems MZ80A-B-K/700/800/1200/1500)

Thanks, that's interesting! 1200 Baud was default but apparently you could tweak the MZ-800 and speed saving/loading up. Found a Peek/Poke instruction for Neptunes Basic to save and load 2400 Baud. I don't remember ever using it myself. I have a lot of 'home-made' cassettes so there might be a chanc...

EmuZ (Emulator for multiple MZ systems MZ80A-B-K/700/800/1200/1500)

The best emulator I've found (for Windows) is the Japanese EmuZ-80 one, found here: http://takeda-toshiya.my.coocan.jp/mz80k/index.html Emulator can be used for more MZ systems, you already mentioned that in your post so I gave it a try. Created a new topic because my main interest is not MZ80 but ...

MZ Collection - Sharpie Dutch magazine

Just scanned one of the Dutch Sharpie magazines in my collection. I have a few more and they are pretty easy to scan so I will scan all of them eventually. It is from a local usergroup in the Netherlands that was pretty popular end of the 80's once a bunch of Sharp MZ-700's and 800's were being dump...

Re: MZ Collection

Yes, the left board is the QD interface. Made this picture to show the difference and similarities between the two. The 'home-made' board has the following components. 74L S244 N A + TT4L S00 B1 + T74L S02 01 If these are indeed the same I assume it is a home-made / hobbyist QD interface - but not w...

Re: [GUIDE] How do I get my .wav files onto my MZ?

I assume you guys are referring to a cassette adapter? If you just google for "car adapter" you will find something totally different.

Seems like a convenient and cheap solution for anyone without unicard.

Re: MZ Collection

OK - interesting :) Any idea what the practical use of it could be?
Connection is exactly the same as the QD drive so that was my first guess.

MZ Collection - Home made hardware (card)

Hi, As mentioned on Facebook I'd like to share some information, pictures, documents etc. regarding my MZ collection that I am still checking myself. Hope to receive some feedback, help and advise what to do with it (trade, sell, or if something is useless - throw it in a bin ;) ) First topic is a c...
