Re: Sharp MZ Hardware Emulator on MiSTer

@psmart. Seems the Atari forums is kinda dead. Sorelig creates a dedicated forum to MiSTer: https://misterfpga.org/ I tried the Atari forum 2 years ago but haven't really been back, Sorgelig will be getting quite a bit of attention from the MiSTer so I guess it's natural he created his own forum. I...

Re: Sharp MZ Hardware Emulator on MiSTer

:) - Unless your a meticulous character, a lot of the time you react on automated memory response, the wires were yellow and black, PC for 12V, hence hooking up 12V! Something of interest though, I have advanced the tranZPUter SW (https://eaw.app/sharpmz-upgrades-tranzputer-sw/) quite a bit and it f...

Re: Color GAL5, color board for MZ80KC/1200

The machine was standard from memory, no different to the one I have now, green screen exactly the same. If you look at this link (on Chrome with translate) you will see the Japanese MZ1200 and the MZ80A both had the intention by Sharp to have colour, Ohishi made a colour card to fit in the space wh...

Re: Sharp MZ Hardware Emulator on MiSTer

Thank-you, that is appreciated. I have come to the conclusion it is best to separate out the emulators for MiSTer with them sharing a common hdl code base, preserving a combined emulator if possible (for my own use). I'll look into doing it for the next release on MiSTer before completing the embedd...

Re: Sharp MZ Hardware Emulator on MiSTer

Hi, yep that is the plan - small steps though, Im currently working on the tranZPUter SW which uses the K64F CPU controlling the real SharpMZ80a hardware. Code written and knowledge gathered will go into the ZPU on the emulator. I've put the ZPU into the emulator already and slowly advancing it's fu...

Re: Color GAL5, color board for MZ80KC/1200

Front page, well used and dated, I learnt digital electronics on this machine and the manual was a constant source of info.

Re: Color GAL5, color board for MZ80KC/1200

My apologies, I didn't see the notification and was preoccupied with my projects! I'll attach the photos but the machine was definitely bought in the UK by my brother in 1982 sometime around July->Sep (I know this as we emigrated back to the UK and my brother came back 3 months before I did). I no l...
