Re: Making a basic text adventure.

It's currently very early in development. No sounds. Just finishing the rooms.

Sadly, I haven't got the knowhow for the SP5025 BASIC to make an inventory yet.

Re: Reading MZ-80A/B discs on PC - Help please !

You are going to need to find an MZ-80A/B floppy disk to NTFS floppy disk. If you are a programmer, go ahead and try to make one yourself (if you do, publish the software in a zip on the forum) but if you aren't I have some steps: Look around the forum for the MZ-80A/B floppy disk to NTFS floppy dis...

Re: Can my MZ700 go up in Magic Smoke twice?

Can my MZ700 go up in smoke twice?

I'm wondering, Can my MZ700 go up in smoke twice? The first time happened over 1 year ago. I was keeping it on, with no CRT connected and then it just started going up. Smoke appearing out of the speaker. I quickly turned it off and it still smells like it. So I am scared to turn it on.

Re: Not so shiny new MZ

My 711 Smells of Magic Smoke after the PSU smoked. I seen Magic Smoke come out of the speaker and I quickly turned it off after freaking out for around 3 seconds. I think it was the X2 capacitor, which is the most common failure of MZ700 PSUs.

How to type in programs on SP-2005 program?

I've loaded the SP-2005 program using my cassette adapter. I just need to know how do I type in programs?

I think R and T dump memory values but that's all I can gather.

SANYO TRC-1148 Recording volume

EDIT: I just realized I overvolted my TRC-1148. I gave it 4x the power it needed. My SANYO TRC-1148's Recording volume is confusing me. I want to find a way to record a Z80 Assembly program I found on the site and copy it to cassette I tried on volume 10 and 8. If you need more info I'm recording to...
