Well, if their text can be retrieved by a tool, I could have them translated with a translator then correct them.
I've sent them back to the owner.

So time for me, eh?

My first ever computer was MZ-731 with just a few programs and games included... Maybe that was the reason I got into programming. Could not play anything unless I wrote it myself ;) Started with BASIC, then learned assembly basics from the sharp manual by reading monitor listing :D

Lots of fun. Unfortunately long time ago I got rid of my old sharp. Then recently i decided to bring back some nostalgia and bought MZ-821. It was in a bit miserable state, but after some cleaning and soldering everything seems to be in perfect order.

Hi everybody!

- male too
- 1969
- South West of France
- The MZ-721 was my first computer in the summer of 1984

I discovered the computer the previous year thanks to the college that had MO5 nano-network.
I have developed a lot of programs for the MZ-721 including some games like Catacombes (Sharp Basic), or Catacombes+ (Kuma Compiler) that have been on the site for about ten years now.
Currently I develop a software that can translate wav format tapes to mzf type files to recover all my programs directly without going through my MZ-721.
I am currently finalizing an MZ-700 emulator under Lazarus: the 1Z-013B monitor, the PCG-700, the sharp Basic, the kuma basic, the kuma compiler, and practically all the games I've been able to recover are working.
Finally, I have a digital interface project between a PC connected USB and a Sharp MZ-700 to exchange two-way data.

Dragon 64 was my first computer at the end of 1983, but I really wanted an MZ-700 that I had seen in a small computer shop window (I think it was an MZ-731) but never bought one in the end. Fast forward to the end of 2018 and I have finally got an MZ-700 of my own (a 711 that has the cassette and plotter upgrades) It is supposed to be in working order, but I haven't powered it up yet until I re-cap the boards especially the power board. So thank you for the tips and info that I have already gleaned from this site and I look forward (or is it backwards?) to using the computer that I wanted all those years ago.
