Re: EmuZ-80

If you want portable, why not using Qt 5 as UI?

Re: idea: custom keyboard for MZ emulation

I have this analog mechanical keyboard (as a KickStarter backer).

I also wish there was a(n) (O)LED keyboard where you can display the characters you want (would it be great at least to display MZ characters as the original keyboard).

Re: [MZ-700] SDLEP-READER: What is it?

Changes done: In mzf2wav/src/methods:81 0x15, 0x01, // D44B: I need to set 0x15 (3600 baud) to 0x1f (2400 baud) in the turboloader code. I also tweaked speed 4 in mzf2wav/src/wav.h:22-25 original: #define TURBO_FAST_LONG_UP 3 // Fastest in turbo mode. #define TURBO_FAST_LONG_DOWN 7 #define TURBO_FA...

Re: [MZ-700] SDLEP-READER: What is it?

So I received some components (breadboard excluded): IMG_20180202_201247.jpg Starting soldering: soldering.jpg First try: IMG_20180204_210605.jpg --- Right now, I need to connect MOTOR and SENSE signals to GND so SDLEP-READER can transmit contents but that's not the way it should be done. So, I orde...

[MZ-700] SDLEP-READER: What is it?

The original link in French is here Author: Daniel Coulom - Website: DCMOTO Emulator - Last updated on February 5, 2018 Here is a translation: SDLEP-READER is an Arduino-based electronic editing. It allows TO and MO tape recorders to be replaced in playback, using "cassette image" files st...

Re: [MZ-700] SDLEP-READER: TEASER!

Ok, the original turbo loader had a hardcoded value for DLY3 to $15 which is for 3600 baud. I think SDLEP-READER may have a hard job to cope with 3600 baud (firmware delay granularity is 50 µS). By setting $1F instead (2400 baud), I was able to read SEND-1 at 2X speed. However, I have found this art...

Re: [MZ-700] SDLEP-READER: TEASER!

It works but it has an annoying behavior. I may need to invert the MOTOR signal. Now, I'm forced to connect MOTOR and SENSE signals to GND respectively to allow SDLEP-READER to transmit file data and bypass the blocking "[PRESS] PLAY" message. So it means I need to push the RESET button on...

Re: [MZ-700] SDLEP-READER: TEASER!

This is a read-only solution. As the author says, tape solutions are nightmares to use and too slow so he doesn't see any useful purpose to implement it. The reason is probably due to some limitations: 1) File "name" is selected by a 7-bit DIP. So you have up to 128 files. 2) FAT is only u...

Re: EmuZ-80

I bought a MiSTer (Terassic DE10-nano). One day, I'll retrieve MZ cores and check them. I think there is an MZ-80 A core done with a DE FPGA, but it may need some adjustments. Not sure if FPGA implementation of MZ can be fit in emulator category though.
