Re: Newbie questions

I think you need to provide a blank .sav file for the save to work. There should be one in the same folder as the release binaries.

Re: Serial console core. Anyone?

Interesting idea. It's basically a Linux shell that can be loaded like any core, and then it's easy to switch back to a core.
Looking forward to it!

Re: Arcade cores

There are super cheap USB encoder PCBs, so it would be trivial to wire a cabinet to connect MiSTer via USB with a couple of these: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/DIY-Zero-Delay-Arcade-Replacement-Parts-Mayitr-USB-Arcade-Encoder-PC-to-Joystick-And-Cable-For/32847381806.html Then output analogue vide...

Re: DE-10 Super Expansion board

It would be cool to have RCA and Component connectors, similar to how MiSTICA does it with RCA and SVideo. They sell 6 plug connectors for that + stereo audio. It probably doesnt fit the board, but thought it's worth mentioning as a possible extra: https://m.facebook.com/retroshoppontopt/posts/15563...

Re: MiSTer NES Core

Would it be complex to allow larger ROM sizes?

There are some homebrew games that use MMC5 and more memory than commercial games, such as Legend of Link:

These work on real hardware but only because they use a custom cart.

Re: Genesis Core

Yeah, I love my Super NT, especially combined with my SD2SNES to enjoy some sweet MSU1 mods. But, I was pretty disappointed that other cores never came, even if they charged for them as you suggested. It's extra lame given that the original NT is not being made any more, and they have said there ar...

Re: SMS core

The Analogue NT mini is sold out and rare even second hand. A MiSTer with SDRAM is a much better option even if the project is not console centric. Certainly it's great if some cores do not need SDRAM, but I think the available cores right now is enough to give new users something to be busy with (a...

Re: Genesis Core

There is one difference: kevtris work for his own pocket. It has nothing to do with preservation. MiSTer is preservation project carrying knowledge to the future. Yes, completely agree. This is obvious for devs, but for everybody else: MiSTer itself is built on the shoulder of other older projects....

Re: Genesis Core

Mega Sg is good if you want to use cartridges, an Everdrive, or real gamepads. Kevtris' work on upscaler is excellent, but the MiSTer is very solid in this department too. If you are thinking of getting the Sg instead of a MISTer due to a hypothetical "core store" that may show up in the f...

Yes. It will allow plugging USB devices that need more power (though there aren't many). 2A is plenty honestly.

The MT-32 is quite pricey nowdays... so FPGA emulation would be very nice. That's probably a major project in itself, though.

I don't remember any problems. Try remapping it, the mapping is specific per core so the menu can have a different joystick mapping than other cores.

Re: MiSTer NES Core

This is great'! FDS supporr was one of the features missing from the core. With this and more mappers, plus save support for non-FDS roms, the core has matured a lot. Thanks for all your hard work! (and let's not forget Loopy, Sebdel, and others who also contributed to this code base)

Re: Is my DE10-Nano Broken?

Happens sometimes to me when the SD card is corrupt. Reformatting the card fixes it, but is a pain. I keep a copy of the SD contents on my PC for this purpose.

You can also try a different SD card.

We're not even done with 8bit and 16bit systems... and as far as I know there aren't many 32bir+ systems on the works. Torlus was looking at Jaguar long ago but I think he didn'r publish his sources (just a video showing preliminary work).

Re: If you want to donate to MiSTer project.

I'd imagine sales for MiSTer are a drop in the ocean compared to yearly sales to university students.

In any case there are ports for at least one other Terasic board, so availability should remain good for a while, even at a slightly higher price.
