Re: Sharp Applications tape?

I'm actually interested in the history of the Applications tape, if anyone knows. It's not mentioned in the Software Manual for the tapes that come with the MZ-80A. I just wonder where it came from, if it was sold separately or whether later production runs of the MZ machines included it as a bundle...

Re: Laser Command V2

Attached is the ZIP of the game. There is a short machine code 'loader' program and then another bigger machine code data or program file.

Laser Command V2

I just took receipt of this game recently. Another lovely Japanese game. It is for the MZ-80K2E / MZ-1200 / MZ-700 and has options for using PCG if you have one. You can still play the game if you don't have PCG though (because it will ask you if you have one).

Re: Sharp Applications tape?

OK so it turns out that I might have sold my MZ-80K Applications tape at some point but I still have two MZ-80A ones. I believe the programs are identical and I've attached them to this post. I guess you may need an 80A to 80K converter for these BASIC programs as the tokens are different. Applicati...

Thanks. If you can get an MZF I will use it.
No problem. I can make one tonight and attach to this thread.

Re: "Connect 4" conversion from BASIC to Machine Code

Whoops... in the ZIP file I named something incorrectly.
"CONNECT4-OBJ.MZF" should actually be named "CONNECT4-SRC.MZF" as it is the source code, not the object code.
Also, I am still writing up the notes comparing the BASIC code with the assembly code, still to come in this post.

Re: Sharp Applications tape?

The rotating globe is likely to be the one from Space Invaders which was on the 'Games' tape. I'm not sure if there are different versions of the Applications tape but I have a number of copies of it myself. I just haven't got around to adding it to my website yet. I can make an MZF no problem, give...

Re: Software that loads onto other software

Can you be a bit more specific?
