Old and obsolete computers

Amiga

This is a set of programs to transfer disk images from PC to an Amiga. The original program is written by Greg Craske. The only difference between his program and this one, is that I altered the code in order to write directly to floppy. This way you can use it in Amiga's with little memory (like an Amiga 500).

git clone git://fixedpoint.nl/pcget2.git

Sharp MZ

All programs on this page are originally written for the Linux operating system. They are all ported to the 32-bit Windows NT/2000/XP systems.

MZF2WAV

Here is a small program to convert an MZF image to a WAV file. This way you can play it and record it to a tape, which can be read by your MZ. You could also connect your PC to your MZ directly. This program should be able to do the same for an Apple II (with some minor modifications). Documentation can be found here. Also see this page for a nice overview.

The source is available via:

git clone git://fixedpoint.nl/mzf2wav.git

MZ SCART TV cable

This is some documentation I wrote to connect your MZ to an ordinary TV.

MZFDISAS

This is a Z80 disassembler, specialised in reading MZF images. Documentation can be found here. There is also a nice overview here.

The source is available via:

git clone git://fixedpoint.nl/mzfdisas.git

MZPUT

This is the most advanced program on this page. It sends an MZF image to your MZ or tape recorder over your parallel port. This way you can transfer images faster than with a sound-card. This program should be able to do the same for an Apple II (with some minor modifications). Documentation can be found here.

A warning for Windows users: In order to do direct I/O under Windows I had to write a piece of code that runs in ring 0. This does work, but it is rather hazardous. Please read the documentation before using this program. For more information, also see this page.

The source is available via:

git clone git://fixedpoint.nl/mzput.git

The SHARP MZ-800 by heart

This is a translation of the Dutch book 'De SHARP MZ-800 ten voeten uit', written by Arjan Habing and Mark de Rover. I translated it because it is a very good manual and it's virtually useless in Dutch. This is the book.
