Re: Beyond

Using decompression through keyboard buffer? There is an option to choose between decompressor inside the MZF header or through the keybaord buffer. For 3 minutes version, it was because each block were compressed. Compressing one huge block appears to give more compression ratio.

Re: Beyond

En WAV - sur cassette - ça prend combien de temps en chargement ? j'avais fait un changement pour que ça prenne moins de 3 minutes au lieu des 12 minutes mais je n'avais pas fait l'effort de rassembler tout ça en un seul MZF.

Now a space invader with, say, 112x100 pixels :p.

Re: Futuro MZ by Genesis Project

Yeah, without looking at the code, I'm pretty sure you use 112 pixels per line, but instead displaying a rectangle, you shift the X character start position X at each pixel line Y. ;P

Re: RGB to VGA for MZ-700

/SYN | /HSY | /VSYNC | /HSYNC | /CSYNC -------+--------+--------+--------+-------- 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 1 0 | 1 | 0 | 1 | 0 1 | 0 | 1 | 0 | 0 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 That looks correct: either /SYN or /HSY must be low to get /CSYNC low. If both is low, then /CSYnc must be high so the TV can still detect their...

Re: RGB to VGA for MZ-700

Argh... you're right. For some reason, I thought my SCART cable was using CVIDEO but I checked again the connection and it is /CSYNC indeed as it makes more sense here. What annoys me is the difference between CVIDEO and /CSYNC as I would expect/CSYNC be mixed in CVIDEO. But the schematics says /CSY...

Re: RGB to VGA for MZ-700

Oh, I could use VSYNC/HSYNC/CSYNC to connect the RGB SELECTOR (FAST BLANK)... But I recall Atari using HSYNC or VSYNC to do so makes some glitches on modern TV.

Re: RGB to VGA for MZ-700

If I recall well, I cannot use the MZ-700 CSYNC for SCART VIDEO. I had to use CVIDEO. That's because I use an Amiga DB23-to-SCART cable and CVIDEO is connected to SCART pin #20 (composite video). If I want to use CSYNC, to which SCART pin it should be connected? For MZ-800, what is your opinion abou...

Re: Introduction

That's awesome! I wonder how it performs compared to an Unicard. Some questions: 1) It looks like the CPU is soldered. I certainly would prefer a low-profile "socket" (I have special pins for that). Especially I have some KL5C8400 CPUs which need a PCB+GAL to make it possible to replace a ...
