Re: Beyond

And beware, once compressed, it is like obfuscated as you cannot decompress it and get the binary back. So when archiving MZF, always keep an uncompressed one.

Re: MZ-1E14 replica

The link I gave you has the disassembly with address label lXXXX. I don't know more about. It sounds as if it can handle Floppy Disk AND Quick Disk the same way as MZ-800. The main difference would be around dealing with specific MZ-1500 hardware (palette, pcg, etc.) So ROM is IPL (2KB) + GCROM (4KB...

Re: MZ-1E14 replica

The only interest was for our MZ-700 to be able to get the complete QD management. But, yeah, that replica won't fit because it would need a different address decoder and a 2732 instead (that's what my last post was saying a "BUT"). MZ-1500 has already the complete QD management in its ori...

Re: MZ-1E14 replica

But it looks as if those ROMs having a complete set of QD commands have an address range of $E800-$FFFF instead of $E800-$EFFF. And I would even consider they could have code between $E010-$FFFF in fact (not necessarily only for QD).

Re: MZ-1E14 replica

I know three interfaces: MZ-1E14 (MZ-700), MZ-1E18 (MZ-2000/200), MZ-1E19 (MZ-800) and MZ-1500 has already a QD ROM. I wonder if the QD part for MZ-1500 can be used since MZ-1500 is more or less an extended MZ-700. I know MZ-700 QD ROM is more limited than MZ-800's. MZ-1E19 ROM commands: - QF-Format...

Re: Still faulty 80K

You must run the RAMTEST after each chip replacement until there is no more halt with the hexadecimal faulty pattern and address. Once running, say, a minute, without halting, it means there is no faulty chip found. Then you can try again your BASIC.

Re: MZ-1E14 replica

Really cool! Could it be possible to use the MZ-1500 QD code as I believe it is more complete and can write programs in QD unlike the MZ-700 interface?
