Re: Emulating Star Avenger

Ok tried Star Avenger. There was a zip with 3 files : MZF, MZT, WAV. The MZF file (14KB) is shorter than MZT file (72KB) and was anormal because it starts with MZF1 then seems to contain a normal MZF/MZT format. The MZT file is bigger and doesn't have a header, it starts with a big chunk of 0. So bo...

Re: Emulating Star Avenger

I can try it on the emulators I have if you direct me where I can find it. Is it a PAL or NTSC game?

Re: Emulating Star Avenger

Do you happen to have the MZF file?

Re: Beyond

And beware, once compressed, it is like obfuscated as you cannot decompress it and get the binary back. So when archiving MZF, always keep an uncompressed one.

Re: MZ-1E14 replica

The link I gave you has the disassembly with address label lXXXX. I don't know more about. It sounds as if it can handle Floppy Disk AND Quick Disk the same way as MZ-800. The main difference would be around dealing with specific MZ-1500 hardware (palette, pcg, etc.) So ROM is IPL (2KB) + GCROM (4KB...

Re: MZ-1E14 replica

The only interest was for our MZ-700 to be able to get the complete QD management. But, yeah, that replica won't fit because it would need a different address decoder and a 2732 instead (that's what my last post was saying a "BUT"). MZ-1500 has already the complete QD management in its ori...

Re: MZ-1E14 replica

But it looks as if those ROMs having a complete set of QD commands have an address range of $E800-$FFFF instead of $E800-$EFFF. And I would even consider they could have code between $E010-$FFFF in fact (not necessarily only for QD).
