Re: PCEngine core issues with roms?

Superb work as usual slingshot, thanks. Great to see the MiST having such a great version of the PCEngine. So many great cores on the MiST! 8)

Re: PCEngine core issues with roms?

Oh yes, it now uses the standard mist.ini now so it defaults to VGA. Holding down middle button (or setting mist.ini) defaults to CRT and the menu appears. It must ignore the old FPGAPCE.CFG file.

Thanks slingshot, it's looking great!

Thanks Higgy, I didn't have a keyboard attached and was pressing the middle MiST button - but that doesn't appear to work as usual.

Does this need special SD card formatting? Can't get it to work on 16GB SD with FAT32.

Re: Genesis / Megadrive core ported to MiST

jotego, is there a download for the 0.52 version. I think the one at https://github.com/mist-devel/mist-bina ... es/fpgagen is 0.51. I'll do some more testing when I get the later version.
Thanks for your amazing work on this FM beauty, it sounds incredible.

Super Street Fighter II graphic glitches are gone with fpgagen-20181109.rbf but the music and sound still has issues and is very quiet with this game.

Re: Genesis / Megadrive core ported to MiST

Haven't noticed the shift to the left on other cores on my Sony Trinitron CRT. fpgagen-beta_20181021.rbf still has the slight shift to the left but I wouldn't call it an issue and I don't have a real megadrive to compare to. Comparing it to Retroarch on my RPi using an RGB SCART interface (rgb-pi.co...

Re: [ZX Spectrum Core] New Update

Thanks MasterOfGizmo for the answer. The problem with it is that instead of the usual, for example pressing key '1', press you get keydown 1, release you get keyup 1. In game layer mode pressing '1' you get keydown 'a' & keyup 'a', release '1' you get keydown 'b' & keyup 'b'. It's probably n...

Re: [ZX Spectrum Core] New Update

I was hoping to add "Recreated ZX Spectrum Keyboard" support to this core but I think the USB keyboard support is in the MiST firmware that would need changing not the core itself. This keyboard, in "Game layer" mode replicates the ZX keyboard exactly, like Symbol Shift, Caps Shi...

Re: Newbie MIST peripherals

Agree with Drog, I use a Sony 14” CRT with RGB SCART and it looks stunning with the cores. LCD just can’t match it for retro. You should be able to pick one up cheap, they’re so well made they last for decades. It’s picture is very close to a PVM.

Re: Which FPGA clone to choose?

Future proof (I am told that MIST boards will not be manufactured anymore) None of these boards will be future proof. MiST is still produced and has a number of active developers (which has recently picked up again). MiSTer is still a sort of kit board although it is a very nice FPGA. It also depen...

Re: BBC Micro

Arcadians looks fine to start with then randomly during the game the graphics get corrupted. There's also a few games where the video wraps round the edge of the screen, only a few games and I can't remember what they are - will need to check again.

Re: MiST core and firmware changelog

Same problem here with current Mist site C64 core and firmware_180810.upg - i.e. D64 images don't load. Also noticed a few menu issues with older cores with this firmware.

Backup to firmware_170412.upg for me as it doesn't have these problems.

Re: BBC Micro

slingshot, looks good. I hoped the new CPU AND VIA might have fixed some timing problems but they're still there. Examples: bad apple has pauses, "beeb track" the bass is out of tune with the rest, arcadians has graphics corruption.

But it has fixed Empire Strikes Back! Nice one. :D

Re: NEW OR UPDATED ARCADE CORES

Colours on many of the cores are a little off on RGB. The red colour is almost brown so I think the intensity needs increasing - this would of course affect other non-primary colours. The other primary colours look OK. Also Burger Time has a green look to it. Haven't tried it on VGA. Good examples a...

Yes, they're the raw files. You need to create an MDV (microdrive) file using the qlayt utility http://www.jadiam.org/QL/QLAY2/.

slingshot, Wow! you've fixed it. Skew problem, that also affected the older core I worked on, has been fixed and the video looks perfect on SCART - looks better than my real ZX81!

With your permission I'll replace the old core on the official Mist website with this core.
