Re: Emulating Star Avenger

This was also my favorite game for my MZ, which I also happened to get in 1984 :) My parents bought it for me because I had been nagging them about getting a computer for a couple of years, and the MZ-700 was the cheapest computer in the store at that time. Star Avenger has been available on sharpmz...

Re: Help new QD owner

Indeed, Flappy and the assembler/debugger-disks were the only working ones. When looking more closely at the disks it's not hard to see why, most of the disks are heavily worn. I formatted the original BASIC disk and copied BASIC to it, but loading fails almost every time. Geir - who has bought the ...

Re: Help new QD owner

Thanks! I now have a working BASIC disk :) I'm sure these QD commands are documented somewhere, but I could not find anything.

Help new QD owner

My new MZ 800 comes with a QD and some disks. I know nothing about QD, and I found that most of the disks I got (including the original BASIC disk) are unreadable. How do I create a working BASIC disk? Somehow I must transfer the 800 QD BASIC to a real quickdisk, but how?

Re: Joy Stick MZ-1X03

You are right, I have not noticed this before. The rate can probably be derived by looking at the assembler example in the manual, but yes, looking at the actual circuit would be easier :) Btw another approach would be to use a small microcontroller instead of the original circuit. The protocol appe...

Re: Joy Stick MZ-1X03

I'm afraid I don't have any pictures of the interiors. Are you planning to build a replica? You probably know this already, but the schematics is available in the manual.
