Re: MZ 700 - rear view

Sure, it would be better to have a look inside: maybe there is card at the same height.

Re: MZ 700 - rear view

Ah yes, it is not centronics. Sorry. It a DB-25. In https://original.sharpmz.org/mz-700/mothbrd.htm, see 24 : "The connector P-1 physically connects the plotter signals to the system". It could be connected to P-1. Can you use RS-232 and can MZ-700 read through this external printer connector or P-1...

Re: Unknown hardware for MZ 800

It looks like an MZ-1U06 (expansion unit). But I believe it is for MZ-700. I don't think MZ-800 need it to hold a FDD card.

See MZ-700 and MZ-800, they both have an MZ-1U06 above a dual FDD: http://www.idealine.info/sharpmz/sucvisit.htm

Re: Unknown software for MZ700

The tape was telling to load BASIC first so I guess they need it.

Re: Unknown software for MZ700

I happen to have this tape: there are two programs - HOME RECORDS - PROGRAMMERS's GUIDE I didn't test them yet.

Re: MZ 700 - detect PAL/NTSC

Anyway, I agree something is still fishy with counter1. I will check it on my MZ-700 with Unicard. ^^

Re: MZ 700 - detect PAL/NTSC

Emulator: I'm not expecting the emulator to run each instruction at an accurate 3.57 MHz frequency. An emulator tends to run a batch of instructions then pause to make the overall speed close to the simulated frequency. So you may not capture the counter value at the right time. Hardware: Was it a t...
