Someone gave me an idea to document the firmware feature differences that the TZX_Tools firmware tool supports. TBH It is a good idea so we can dispel the myths and views on the different firmware as they all do something a little different. From this table, you can see why I prefer MaxDuino. Even more than my own firmware Digiwavuino. I’m sure over time I’ll have to update it and I’m sure there will be 1 or 2 incorrect entries but this is my view on the features.
FYI TZX_Tools is a tool that allows for simple updating of devices running the below firmware.
|DYNAMIC SCREEN DETECTION||N||N||N||N||Y|
|DYNAMIC SD DETECTION||Y||N||N||N||Y|
|CHANGE SD CARD WITHOUT RESET||N||N||N||N||Y|
|REMOTE JACK FOR MULTILOAD||Y||Y||Y||Y||Y|
|MUTLILOAD GAME SUPPORT FOR ZX SPECTRUM||Y||N||N||N||N|
|ARDUINO NANO EVERY||Y||N||N||N||N|
|STORE LOGO IN EEPROM||Y||N||N||N||N|
|ENCHANCED SDFAT SUPPORT||Y||N||N||N||N|
I realized very early on, that people wanting to update their TZXduino, MaxDuino, CASduino, or ArduiTape would struggle if they had no experience with the Arduino programming tool. So I built a FREE tool to do that for you in a way to give back to the Retro Community. Watch the video below and CLICK HERE if you want to download the tool.
This is a nice video by Phil Kruman reviewing the MZuitape device to load MZ700 games stored in WAV file format from a microSD card on to an MZ700. f you want to buy one head over to our online store CLICK HERE
In this video, I demonstrate how to use the MZuitape device to load up games on a Sharp MZ800 . In the back, you get a glimpse of a Mz700 and that works in exactly the same way. If you are interested in owning one of these then head over to our online store CLICK HERE
