Re: MZ 700 - detect PAL/NTSC

Software: 8253.CLK1 = /BLNK. Between two fall-edge /VSYNC count how many /BLNK occurs (reading CNT1 before and after and compute delta for instance). It should give the number of lines which should reflect a PAL or NTSC number of lines. Just tested this, and while it worked fine (sort of) in the em...

Re: Dumping character ROM

By analyzing Swedish characters, I realized that there were duplicate characters (pink color) and poorly copied characters (in red) compared to Western originals (attached image). The duplicate characters are there to avoid patching software. Take a look at my Swedish keyboard and you'll see what I...

Difference between MZT and MZF files

What is the difference between these file formats? They appears to be the same to me. E.g. hlide's MZF compressor refuses to accept MZT files, but reads them happily when I rename them to MZF. Same with various emulators, they only accept one of these file suffixes but reads both types after renamin...
