Re: Mist cores auto-booting titles... and original pack-in games.

Yes. I chose a 1.3 bios for the SMS so I get greeted with the startup SMS tune. Also, I like reliving the old days by pressing up and both buttons on the gamepad to launch the built-in hidden snail maze game.

Re: SMS core

I wonder why nobody reads the scrolling text in the osd for the joystick emulation. Hi slingshot! Thanks for the heads up. I always thought the scrolling message was just for the MiST in general ("Welcome to MiST!") and not core specific. It mentioned emulating a gamepad with the numlock ...

Re: SMS core

SMS pads only have a d-pad and 2 buttons. Even if a DB9 controller is out there that might have SELECT and START like a NES does, I think the DB9 ports on the MIST are said to only support Up Down Left Right and two buttons. I also tried with USB controllers like my USB N64 and Sega Saturn with adap...

Re: BlissBox Support on MiST?

Mist cores auto-booting titles... and original pack-in games.

The SMS core just didn't feel right without the boot music and was informed I could pick a bios file and rename it to SMS.rom and throw it in the root folder on the SD. I get a small quick flash of the boot menu before the bios boot music but still very good. Some cores have a familiar boot screen l...

Wow, I haven't tried the C64 core updates but this looks fantastic! Big thanks! There is dual SID, AND 1541 for .dsk images? I have a MK2 board but only have a SIO2PC and no ultimate64 board nor cart. So this might actually save me some money too? If I get my keyrah C64 keyboard working with it I'd ...

Maybe a pipe dream, but is there a way for the core to autoload a custom bios file like the one with Hang On/Safari Hunt (and hidden snail game) by default instead of the boot loader screen? Probably you can load any cart at boot, if you rename it to sms.rom and put it to the root directory of the ...

Whoa, I got slingshot listening?? :) Your assessment is indeed how it shows in Windows 7. Odd, my Mayflash unusual adapter accepting a Sega Saturn controller, N64, and Ps2 is the only USB adapter yet I found works with the MiST. A great start would be to determine what it does correctly that the Bli...

BlissBox Support on MiST?

I am reading some posts about BlissBox support for Mister. Would it be feasible to add it to the MiST? I am guessing that would be firmware implemented and not a core by core basis, yes?

Using original controllers "Can i attach legacy device xyz?"

On the MiST Wiki, it states "The only legacy devices currently supported by the MIST are "C64 style" joysticks. A MIDI add-on is also available. Support for other hardware (ROM cartridges, printers, Atari Mice, original Atari screens, ...) are not planned." So strictly for the DB...

Re: SMS core

Wonderful, and thank you! I tested the core with a real SMS controller and it works great, as does a megadrive/genesis one (both plugged in the DB9 ports- you still need a keyboard to navigate the menus). Has adding a pause button through keyboard mapping or OSD option been considered? Really loving...

Astrocade I had working at some point on the MiST but now seems not to. Maybe it's my Monitor switch to my Nokia. The core looks about 4 years old now.
