EmuZ-80

Post by mz-80a » Thu Feb 08, 2018 6:47 am

The best emulator I've found (for Windows) is the Japanese EmuZ-80 one, found here:

http://takeda-toshiya.my.coocan.jp/mz80k/index.html

it seems to emulate the sound really well for the MZ-80 machines (not tried MZ-700). Like most of the MZ emulators the timing is not perfect though. For instance my Z80 interrupt routines to make changes to the screen needs to be adjusted quite a lot to work at all.

Anyone aware of any other emulators? (other than Multisystem which doesn't seem as good as the above)

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.

I tried the EmuZ-800 and think it is quite nice, but the code is very Windows specific. A more portable solution would be nice, as I plan to migrate to Linux, after Windows 7 supports ends.

This portable emulator has some potential, also the GTK GUI is still very basic:

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

I'm not up to date in the Windows emu scene. Can anyone tell me:
Which emulator is able to use 80char or 40char CP/M (2.2, 3.1, P-CPM-80, CP/M LEC+ and others)?
Which emulator emulates most of all MZs?
Which emulator is able to use K&P disk images?
Which emulator is able to emulate the K&P graphic interface (700)?
Which emulator is able to emulate the SUC 80char card?
Which emulator is able to emulate the K&P 80char card?
Which emulator is able to emulate a RAM card?
Which emulator is able to emulate the plotter?
Which emulator routes the output of print/plot commands into a text file and to a screen?
Which emulator is able to extract files from a disk or QD image?
Which emulator supports the Z80 programmer with assembler, debugging, disassembler, single step and more?
Which emulator has a dir cmd (QD and Floppy)?
Which emulator is able to use different screen attributes (size/frames/colors)?
Which emulator allows a screen shot?
Which emulator emulates a tape recorder and up to 4 disk drives (using ALL known formats)?
Which emulator emulates a quick disc (read and write)?
Which emulator supports European and Japanese keyboards (virtual / real)?
Which emulator supports European and Japanese CG-ROMs by one click?
Which emulator supports mouse, RS232?
WWhich emulator has a tape preloader support?
What about support for 1E05, 1F11, 1R12, 1R18, SFD700, WOOKY (800), scan line mode, 80column Basic versions, 80k PCG?
That is what I want from an emu. Maybe, my list is incomplete.
