Re: HDMI video capture

Would it be possible to share this core or point me in the right direction of the tweaks I would need to make to the verilog so I could potentially compile my own? Sure. Use modified hdmi_config.sv with changed ADV7513 chip initialization data. AudioInfo packets included to transmit audio format da...

Re: HDMI video capture

I'm having this same issue with no HDMI audio on my Elgato, but it's also affecting how I normally route my audio through my HDMI switch as I also do not get audio coming out of my monitor. I swear I've somehow tricked audio into working once for a single Arcade core but was unable to reproduce it ...

Re: Running MISTer on SOCkit

From linux point all these boards are the same and you can use the same SD card. Didn't try with new layout but older SD image didn't run properly neither on SoCKit nor on DE10-Standard. Anyway, not worth of time to figure out why. Each board requires some sort of dances and no significant benefits...

Re: Building Linux kernel

Re: Mister... no USB devices are recognized...

MiSTer uses polling mechanism to query FPGA. It's single thread for all kind communications to FPGA, so any significant delay will delay everything like disk i/o, kbd/joy, etc.. Input flood may lead to input latency for example. In worse cases some cores may fail to use disk i/o due to long wait an...

It's safe to start board without even heatsink. Just be aware that you won't get heavy cores like ao486 stably working and you mig...

Re: Script launcher menu and Linux hooks fantasies

Then you need to use old & obsolete SDL1 instead of current SDL 2. Latest Hatari supports both SDL1 & SDL2, older versions supported only SDL v1. I think SDL1 should support running in plain framebuffer. (Framebuffer is often slower than X11 though as it's normally pretty much without any a...

Re: Script launcher menu and Linux hooks fantasies

There may be a way to get the emulators up using just SDL instead of SDL on xwindows - to keep things lightweight. I haven't looked at it yet, the question is whether this would be a ton of work to make the framebuffer backend work. The current framebuffer backend requires opengl. Maybe one of the ...

Menu.rbf is loaded at U-boot time, before loading the main kernel? And the boot process stops completely if FPGA config fails for any reason?

All Cyclone V SOCs can boot the HPS from this flash, but only the Standard has the connection on the board (although it seems the actual device is not populated). And again, only the Standard have this enabled on U-boot. U-boot is not an issue - MiSTer already has slightly customized version and we...

One significant difference on the DE-10-Standard is that Linux can bootstrap, at least in theory, from Flash. But the schematics show serial flash as non populated ??? The Flash parameters do are enabled in the U-Boot. Why the question about boot sequence and devices even came to a scene? Booting H...
