Re: It's no more a MiSTery

Finally finished up with PoV 19. The ATG Demo has the exact same bitplane weirdness as previously noted in the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. demo. Right down to the bottom merely flickering in Hatari but the Demo otherwise being okay there. Come to think about it, it's possible the other demos on this disk are sim...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

But If indeed it depends on no joystick signal being asserted, then it is definitely a bug. And as Alex said, Ppera can probably fix it. Yep -- I haven't reported it to Ppera yet which may seem lazy but that's because this is less about my being able to play Hard n Heavy and really about noticing t...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

Indeed. Especially the mistery core is meant to be exact. Triggering existing bugs in software is actually what we want. If it's broken on a real ST then it's meant to be broken on mistery as well. Well, I've just speculated it is broken. Would be good if somebody could test. I wonder if it would b...

Re: Veeeery nice productions of 2019

Hence lack of feedback with new stuff, Nowadays the activity concerns Mist stuff , each to their own, but no interest whatsoever for me. Man, that makes me think. Because I'm almost exclusively posting in the MiST section these days but I'm super interested in seeing new scene/games/demo stuff. I'v...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

It might sound unbelievable, but depends on what state you left the mouse. And now the technical explanation if somebody interested: Huh. That is interesting. Is it just random chance that it worked for me on the old core? I must have tried on the new core a dozen times with different TOS and RAM c...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

Just checked this out before breakfast. It "just works" on my STe, TOS1.62. The distortion of the scrolling text is ok as camera wasn't fast enough :) Thank you!! The bottom half of the scroller wasn't flickering every few frames? If not then Steem SSE, Hatari and the MiSTery core are all...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

I seem to recall somewhere that a firmware update was needed for some hard drive stuff? But there's been an update since then. I'm running the latest firmware, 11/29/19, and there seem to be some regressions with hard drive installable versions of games. Petari's Hard n Heavy STE version (hard drive...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

Want to see something odd? No? Well, I'm going to post it anyway. Here's something that fails differently on the MiSTery core as compared to both Hatari and STeem SSE. On PoV 16, and it appears to be a Version 3 which I've attached to this post to ensure we're all looking at the same disk, the S.U.C...

Toggle between normal/STe joystick ports with F11.


Haven't tried it yet, but does this just apply to USB controllers (which would make sense) or does it apply to the DB9 ports as well?

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

Then it's not a bad ratio with only one partially failing screen. It's a testament to how far you've brought this core that I am now legitimately surprised when anything doesn't work, even things that push the limits. I'm definitely seeing more failures due to things like TOS versions and RAM setti...

Ah! Thanks -- in that case I wouldn't bother trying to reproduce this particular error and will instead continue the PoV slog when I get time.

I think I tested five more disks last weekend.

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

One demo, BMT3, is a full overscan screen scroll with a picture of a wolf, but (on my TV at least) the sync is lost and tears part way down the screen, but the central scroll line is stable. I've been meaning to try to reproduce the problem since you posted, but I've been out of town and now have a...

YM-Audio is set to Mono, unless there's another setting I need to tweak.

Hopefully someone who isn't me (in case I'm crazy) and isn't you (because I don't want to waste your time listening to samples) can have a listen and confirm.

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

PoV 11 - TCB The Junk Demo.

The samples sound very scratchy and the drums aren't at all clear compared to running in Hatari.

Can someone else confirm this for me and make sure it isn't just my setup or isn't that way on a real ST?

But I can't imagine it is. It sounds bad.

R-Type Deluxe. A rare case of the old ST core being more compatible.
