Re: Wifi

@Sorgelig I found a fix (that works for me). This option of dhcpcd always ensures wlan is set up okay: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/dhcpcd#10-wpa_supplicant E.g. create link to tell it to start wpa_supplicant if needed, which works if wlan0 is not ready during boot. You can set env to point ...

Re: Wifi

Alright, I'm back to a bit or MiSTer'ing after Thanksgiving. I hooked up to the console and found that: * Simply issuing ifup wlan0 will bring up wlan0 and give it an IP using the wpa_supplicant.conf I had configured, so my settings were fine * MiSTer usually fails to bring up wlan0 during boot, but...

Re: Wifi

I have it connected via a powered USB hub and otg cable, this is currently working to support gamepads, mouse, keyboard. I have only just built the MiSTer unit and currently have to squeeze in play time between family visiting and my work, so I will try to do some more debugging. I think the DE 10 m...

Re: BBC Micro

I never had and even never saw this computer in real life. Thanks for porting this core! The BBC micro was extremely common in UK schools and many kids in the 80s and 90s probably used one to learn programming in BASIC. Certainly these were still doing duty in high schools in Scotland through the 9...

Re: Wifi

D-Link DWA-171 (HWVer: A1) on RTL8812AU chip works well using standard wpa_supplicant. So, at least this WiFi-ac dongle will work in new Linux release. Probably other dongles on the same chip (and RTL8821AU) will work as well. @Sorgelig I bought this adapter (same rev A1), I figured if you were usi...

Re: Fan plate for those without IO boards

I hand-fabbed a fan plate today using a small sheet of Lexan polycarbonate from Home Depot. This was approximately the same thickness as the stock plate. I used the stock plate as a template for width and height and for stenciling the screw holes. I used a 1.5" circular bit to cut the fan hole....

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

Okay so Project X Special Edition is doing the same thing, I am guessing many classic Team 17 games might. Sadly these are many of my favorite games. I found the problem goes away when switching the core option to NTSC, but then the game timing is wrong. Problem shows when running specific PAL timin...

Re: Fan plate for those without IO boards

Why wouldn't you just mod the included clear plate to drill some mounting holes and cut a hole for the fan? I mean, would you ever want to run it without the fan?

Thanks for the info. Can confirm that it was due to the readme that I had believed it would work.

SD card utility on Win 7

On a Windows 7 box I tried to use the SD card utility to prepare a Sandisk Ultra 32GB SDSQUAR-032G-GN6MA card. Both Windows 7 and the sdcard.org tools would format it to it's 32GB capacity. The MiSTer tool detects it as 0.1GB and after formatting there is a partition with about 5MB of space, filled ...

Re: SDRAM board

I just assembled my first two ram boards, and wanted to share some feedback. Firstly, thank you Sorgelig, I see you are doing an incredible amount of work on software/hardware. The open-source nature of this, right down to boards and SMD parts, as well as good write-ups have enabled me to put togeth...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

I loaded Body Blows Galactic (non-AGA) last night and while it ran, the display was almost unwatchable due to rapid vertical shifting +/- 1 pixel.

I would guess the game is using an interlaced mode and maybe MiSTer HDMI/scaler isn't handling it very nicely, but I don't know for certain.

Re: How actively are you using your MiST?

I love the mist, but I've stopped using it because: A) last time I used it there were major timing issues in the Amiga core affecting games I wanted to play, but mostly B) With no HDMI output it honestly is just a PITA connecting it to any modern display, especially the TV in the living room which i...

Re: MIST 1.3 plus

So make it a decent upscale, it only has to get to 720p (or maybe less) for compatibility with every TV. Right now I'd take crappy over no picture at all or bad timings due to forcing NTSC to get 60hz. A framemeister is currently $450USD, for reference. Cheaper boxes work in some cases and not others.

Re: MIST 1.3 plus

Maybe I don't understand, but even if the more obscure cores have weird timings couldn't they all include something in their output chain whose job it is to receive that format and scan it into one of a few choices of well known buffer formats that a cheap HDMI upscale part (or fgpa routine) could r...

Re: MIST 1.3 plus

The biggest thing I look forward to in a new MIST rev would be HDMI out. Nothing has wasted more of my time and "stolen" a sense of fun I had looked forward to in getting a MIST than having to deal with finding compatible displays, expensive converter boxes that work with some cores/option...
