So when calling MONITOR MOTOR, you must wait for 1,7s until you can emit those GAPs of 100 short pulses!
My idea
Why not eleminating this? Put the monitor into the RAM, modify it and run it (by a tiny program).

Re: [SD2MZCMT] GitHub link

In fact, I saw you only need to read 100 short pulses for a GAP preceding a TAPEMARK. Same as the MZ monitor does: A GAP contains up to 22,000 short pulses but the monitor reads and counts only the first 100 pulses ( see the subroutine GAPCK at location $0FE2 ). The remainig pulses are not counted ...

Re: SDF700 drive down.

Could you solve your problem? If not, please describe the problem more detailed. If so, describe the repair please.
Greetings to the (known) southwest of France karl-Heinz
Btw, thanks for your disassembled documentation (SFD700). Is it possible to translate it so that all can read it?

Well, if their text can be retrieved by a tool, I could have them translated with a translator then correct them.
I've sent them back to the owner.

Re: 10 line programs

Great idea. This is mine, which tries to compute PI (3.141592...) by using the "Monte Carlo simulation". 10 L=1:A=0 20 X=RND(1):Y=RND(1) 30 X=X*X:Y=Y*Y:D=X+Y 40 IF D<=1 THEN A=A+1 50 PI=4*A/L 60 PRINT PI 70 L=L+1 80 GOTO 20 Something for users who like mathematics. We could also write small BASIC pr...

Re: Token converter

Try SP-5030 on a 80a. As I remember, it should work. Tell me if I'm wrong, please.

You also can try the converter 80k to 80a:

Re: idea: custom keyboard for MZ emulation

What about using an emu that supports (customizable) virtual kbd? The correct one for each machine and for Europe, Japan and so on?
For PC but more interesting perhaps for mobile devices using touch screens ... Ask the emu programmers for improvement

Re: EmuZ-80

I'm not up to date in the Windows emu scene. Can anyone tell me: Which emulator is able to use 80char or 40char CP/M (2.2, 3.1, P-CPM-80, CP/M LEC+ and others)? Which emulator emulates most of all MZs? Which emulator is able to use K&P disk images? Which emulator is able to emulate the K&P graphic i...

Re: 80 columns on MZ700

25 years are gone, but, indeed, very very interesting. (btw, already implemented in Michael's emu). I wonder that it was sold by a magazine in '95 and a hint in a mag of '90 that it is in work. No info between this mags, no further articles about it all the years. I know such timing problems by old ...
