Re: MiSTer for Dummies

De10 Nano is pretty forgiving when it comes to power. Do not worry. OSD will show even when no keyboard is attached. You have to get the sd card prepared by the tool, you need the partitions to be correctly setup. Try another sd card maybe, or try using Linux to prepare the card. However, the window...

Re: case and I/O panel ideas

I like Newsdee's suggestion for a standardized case. Makes sense. But it should remain a case and not a new project imho. I like Sorgelig's approach to MiSTer and his effort to standardize the daughter boards as much as possible. It makes it easier to design cases in the first place and also helps t...

Re: VGA --> RGB for 1084S Monitor

Okay - I have a hunch of what could be going on.
I read that the old analogue RGB of my 1084S uses a combined H.Sync/V.Sync that is outputted by some old machines (amiga and genesis) on the same pin as the composite sync signal. Maybe the MiST simulates this somehow?

Re: VGA --> RGB for 1084S Monitor

Thank you for your suggestion. The picture rolls on the MiSTer RGB connection independent of the core in use. The 1084S offers a so call Analogue RGB which works without vertical sync. Vertical sync is identical to composite sync here. It has not vertical sync for analogue RGB at all. It also offers...

Re: VGA --> RGB for 1084S Monitor

I understand - no problem - It is not urgent :mrgreen: :) I used my shoddy DSO138 Oscilloscope to get a reading on the H sync pin (VGA pin 13). Both MiSTer and MiST looks very similar. MiST looks more stable though and MiSTer signal seems to disappear in regular intervals. Maybe this is a clue. But ...

Re: VGA --> RGB for 1084S Monitor

Sadly I have no real oscilloscope. I can only test it against the MiST output (i.e. direct comparison). But this is of limited value. Actually I did know that the VGA Output of the MiSTer is mainly used for development. I guess I just was happy that the old monitor worked on the MiST first try with ...

I just completed a cable to input the VGA of the MiST into my old 1084S D1 CRT Monitor using the 9 pin RGB input. After disabling the scandoubler in the MiST.ini I got a perfect picture on the MiST, just like I got from my old machines. Trying the same cable with the MiSTer I was not as lucky. MiSTe...

Re: NEW OR UPDATED ARCADE CORES

All three cores (Defender, Phoenix and Xevious) work fine with HDMI and VGA (Mister_20171016).

Maybe it would make sense to have some folder structure available now. My menu cores start getting a crowded OSD with all the cores :-P

Thank you for these great cores!! :mrgreen:

For those who are not following the news items as closely as I. In light of the announcement of the Super NT SNES FPGA by Analogue jwdonal the developer of the VeriSNES confirmed once more that his goal is to get his core open sourced. Terrific news! I hope he accomplishes his goal. :D Quote: "...

Re: MiSTer: MiST on Terasic DE10-nano board.

It will not be your MiSTer if all other cores look fine. Maybe try it on a different Monitor with HDMI in and compare. I encountered heat related HDMI scaler issues in the MiSTer once running ao486. But those looked more like "snow" / bright white pixels appearing randomly. Those issues di...

You mean the image is noisy? Hopefully, this shows what I'm trying to explain. IMG_0654.JPG Yes, looks like an interlace issue on your scaler back-end? Maybe you are up-scaling it to 1080p?

Re: MiSTer: MiST on Terasic DE10-nano board.

Looks like he needs some time to work on the outputs. However, it is great to see he is using the MiSTer platform. We waited a long time for an SNES core. I do not mind to wait some more. In the video he promises to get the core to us. That is great news! 8)
