Re: MiST VGA Compatibility

Hey guys, I may repeat this info in a couple of related threads, but I've come up with a potential solution. I'm at least 90% there. It involved the purchase of a few products: Amazon links: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MZACPLY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and https://www....

Re: For MIST, Eclaire, 1088XEL - Atari 7800 PRO System Computer Keyboard

I was thinking of an adapter, but if it was just a prototype, a better route is to figure out a Teensy/KeyRah type of device with a 600xl/800xl case. Anyone know the whereabouts of the A8 molds? Man I wish they were remade. :)

Re: Decorating a MIST case with a logo.

That looks great! I was thinking about there for my XL badge. I don't want to make the MIST a guitar case littered in stickers and decals, but maybe it would be cool to put an Amiga logo, Speccy, etc. in strategic locations.

Decorating a MIST case with a logo.

I found some high quality thick logos on ebay for older computers from seller "marstickers" (based in Poland) and got one of the Atari 800XL. Some have mentioned that the MIST case is functional but not that aesthetically pleasing. I like it but want to add the logo. If YOU were to add the...

Really? Wow! What is the plan? I'm trying to picture the input/output chain of cabling. I suppose a monitor for the MIst to adjust MT-32 modes and settings is needed as well as a monitor to play your compatible computer and games? It will be fascinating to see how the MT-32's front push buttons are ...

Wow, I'm glad I revisited this thread I started. Those are exciting new details. I have a pi3 (in an Amiga printed case) as well as the MIst, and hope to experiment in the new year. If there are only a few late games that are tricky, there is always emulation on the pi or PC. I wonder if the MIster ...

Best place besides ebay to score replacement ICs?

I think nearing 2018, everyone has heard of ebay. I wonder the latest and greatest places to source replacement IC chips, especially NOS. Would be great if a place that has chips for many old computers.

Re: best atari 8-bit to buy

Yes, if you get the Lotharek ultimate 1 meg upgrade, it levels the playing field on all of them. THEN it is down to the desired functionality and look that you want. The 400 is cool because it is the FIRST. You will want a UAV and audio mod by Bryan on the forums. The 800 is cool because it is the F...

Re: Mist expansion (in theory)

All good points. I was just using examples of expansions, but of course things like Vampire card projects are better suited for original hardware.

Mist expansion (in theory)

This question is only theoretical. Hopefully FPGA development won't get abandoned for the MISTer only. I thought about the Vampire cards for the Amiga 600. Lacking a card slot (obviously) on the MIST, what in theory could expand it's power and functionality? Could a hobbyist pcb with the right conne...

I think the GS already uses a PS2 port for keyboard so I may use an IBM model M there too. Probably will ...
