Re: MZ80K keytops

How to read the 16-bit counter #2 of PIT8253?

If I program the counter #2 as a byte counter, it works fine when I read $E006: LD HL,$E006 LD C,(HL) If I program the counter #2 as a 16-bit word counter, it doesn't work when I try to read the lower byte first then the upper byte.

Re: Joy Stick MZ-1X03

While I have one, I wasn't confortable to dismantle it as I may break it by trying to dislodge the PCB (one main and two smaller for switches).

Re: Introduction

That's just an idea I had because modern TVs don't like at all when a pixel is alternating colors.

So I thought t...
