Re: Sharpworks Fast Loader

However, the EmuZ-80A emulator seemed to read it all quite well too when I last tested! This is why I feel like it's the superior emulator, it reads WAVs natively.

Re: Sharpworks Fast Loader

Yep. And it worked :) Although I would usually use one of those for transferring from laptop to Sharp. When I'm transferring from Sharp to laptop I usually use a hi-fi separates tape deck with USB soundcard. MZF Studio is capable of reading the fast WAVs as long as it's set to MZ-80B import mode :) ...

Sharpworks Fast Loader

Hi, One of Sharpworks' current projects is to produce a fast loader program to enable tapes to be loaded and saved much more quickly than the Monitor usually does but also to keep reliability. We're nearing completion of it in fact. I've just uploaded a video showing a 'trial run' of the program whe...

EmuZ-80

The best emulator I've found (for Windows) is the Japanese EmuZ-80 one, found here: http://takeda-toshiya.my.coocan.jp/mz80k/index.html it seems to emulate the sound really well for the MZ-80 machines (not tried MZ-700). Like most of the MZ emulators the timing is not perfect though. For instance my...

MZ-1200 Character ROM ?

Does anyone have a copy of the MZ-1200 character ROM? I would like to change the one in my MZ-80A for the 1200 so I can play some Japanese games. I also have the ability to make new Monitor ROMs and character ROMs for the 80A. In fact, if anyone has the 1200 Monitor ROM as well that'd be pretty cool...
