Re: MiSTer updater script

Just to confirm, the script does not update the Linux image, right?
I thought I saw an option, but re-reading the wiki/doc I see no such thing.

Re: Apple ][+ Core

TBH I'm not sure how useful hard drive support is, versus making disks writeable. I have an original machine but I only ever used floppies and .dsk images (via CFFA 3000) with it. I believe hard drives were mostly used in business software, but I could be wrong.

Re: Apple ][+ Core

Regarding disk and write support, I remembered the CFFA 3000. It doesn't have schematics on the page, but has a logic file for the CPLD it uses. Also the page has some links of similar projecrs (e.g. IDE interface). http://dreher.net/?s=projects/CFforAppleII&c=projects/CFforAppleII/referenceMate...

Re: Scaler

This is not a feature request, just mere curiosity on my part: I recently read a discussion about implementing filters on an emulator to post-process dithering, e.g. detect some patterns in the line and blend the pixel colors to achieve transparency effects or more colors. The examples given were pr...

Re: Would MiSTer ever be able to run a Neo Geo core?

Let's walk before we can run, dude. Who knows, if somebody implements a CD-ROM handling for any core it may help towards others. I would image they would implement standard "Red Book" CDROM formats, so at least NeoGeo CD, Sega CD, and PCE CD would be similar to some extent (the data storag...

Re: Show us your MiSTer hardware setup

Since you are mounting stuff, you can add external buttons and LEDs. If I'm not mistaken they are direct pin connections to the DE10.

Re: MiSTer Case options??

What did you use to mod? I need a new case for my MiST (not -er) and I was wondering if I could adapt the MiSTer case. One caveat is my printer can only print 12cm on each dimension, so I'd have to split the case in parts. I have zero experience with this, but was hoping I could at least get a base ...

Just wanted to report here that I printed the 5.2 and 2.0 tops with buttons successfully with a Monoprice Select Mini V2. I used the "high tolerance" version of the 5.2 and the regular 2.0. For both, the buttons work great. For materials I went with PLA and 22% infill, 0.175 mm layer thick...

As you see in my pic i skip one USB port. If i place one of them in the middle port then only one will work.

Maybe they are too close and the signals clash?
