software for the emulator...

All apps or games are stored in PTP tape file format (PMD 85 Tape Package). PTP file format is similar to well know TAP file from ZX Spectrum emulators. It differ only in file header which contains PMD 85 standard intro synchronization sequence (groups of FFh, 00h, 55h bytes). New tape format implementation results from a way of tape emulation and requirements of headerless block separation.

Every single ZIP archive contain text description file with program list in tape files (but only in slovak yet). In this list is always noted model needed to run, start method, author (if is known) and some comment.
