Re: Master-Boot (or similar) for the MZ-80A?

Starting to wonder if it's worth disassembling the 80K one and seeing if it can be transcribed to the 80A. Trouble is I don't know the I/O stuff for the 80K.

Re: [GUIDE] How do I get my .wav files onto my MZ?

The emulator I use does use WAV files as well as MZF. My Fast Loader actually worked with a fast formatted WAV on my emulator which surprised me initially but it's just a great emulator. Car adapter from Amazon is the way I've always done it for the physical machine.

I'm not sure I see the point anyway unless you are intending on displaying your machine somewhere for people to see plus it won't last anyway.

Re: Creating a sharp MZ80k Basic master disk (or any other disk)

Re: CP/M on the MZ-80A

I know I need an 80 column modification It's interesting because I don't know where that assumption comes from.
