Re: Futuro MZ by Genesis Project

Finally the demo I've been working on is finished, thanks to everyone here on the forums for their help! Youtube video MZF binary Technically it a bunch of standard "demoscene" effects, trying to optimize as best as I could with interleaved VRAM access and stack abuse to get as much speed...

Re: Help new QD owner

Geir - who has bought the QD off me but not collected it yet - has bought 40 NIB disks for it, so I guess this won't be a problem for him :) Sheer madness! Did he eat some bad herring ;) I was quite on the fence on buying either a unicard or building a QD emulator like was featured on the main site...

Re: Help new QD owner

I did a quick check in the technical reference (page 121) :

QL : load
QS : save
QC : copy
QF : format
QX : transfer
QD: directory

And I rember putting flappy on disk 10 or 11 ;) I never got around to "restoring" the original disks.

Re: Help new QD owner

Hi Jo, use QF to format a disk (side) and then use QX to load a program from tape that will then be copied to disk. This should get you started. Also I used the black ribbon cable to jumper the pin of the cassette connection on the motherboard to be able to use the 3,5mm input jack to stream mzf /wa...

Glad it finally got there and in one piece, well 3 if I remember correctly!
I've never been so stressed about sending a package in my life :D

Re: WTB: MZ-800

Sorry hlide,

I struck a deal with Jo already. I did see a brand new /old stock sharp QD drive for sale on ebay a while back, but I think that's gone now.

Re: WTB: MZ-800

It's located in the Netherlands, but if you are not interested in the QD than an ebay 821 one might be the better option. I'm not planning to sell it off in parts, just too much of a hassle.

Re: WTB: MZ-800

I've cleaned up my mz-821 and got the QD and tapedrive working and lost interest quickly afterwards (it's the journey not the destination kind of thing?).
Anyway I might want to sell in the near future but I really have no idea yet what reasonable even is, since they are rarely sold online.

Re: Gotek drive emulator

Ok, I never tried Jeff's firmware in the end but decided to help to get the flashfloppy firmware fixed. The experimental firmware I got seems to work!

Re: WTB: Belt for -K- Tape drive

Hi, thanks for your answer. Any idea what this "T" means ? Has anyone already replaced these belts ? Sorry for the 2+ year necropost here.. I have today replaced the belt on my quickdrive. And it works. The machine has not worked in decades so I have idea if the disks have degraded or tha...
