Re: I/O Board

Will the 6.1 I/O board be compatible with current cases?
(I know the files are in Github but I don't even know what software is supposed to open them)

That looks sooo good. How are you doing it? looks like the mark of a router on that flat, grey surface. CNC? What material is that? Will you be selling these?

Re: Running scripts on CRT without framebuffer or VGA scaling on?

What I do is to enable VGA scaler as a general rule and then create custom configs for all the cores I use at the end of the ini where I disable it. mister.ini [NES] vga_scaler=0 [SNES] vga_scaler=0 (etc.) It's a pain, I know, I wonder if there can be a custom entry for "menu".

Re: I/O Board

Hi, From the user's point of view, what's the difference between the v6.0 board and the 5.6 XL? Any new feature? I had a visual inspection of the board and it seems to have the same ports, buttons, LEDs, etc. so just wondering if this new revision is something worth the upgrade or the changes only a...

Does this mean we can apply force_scandoubler=1 and it will generate 30khz horizontal signal for a regular CRT VGA computer monitor?

Re: 240p/120Hz instead of 480p/60Hz for VGA scandoubler?

If you have an HDMI to VGA converter try the following custom video mode: video_mode=1920,48,192,240,240,3,10,8,75170 This should, in theory, show a 1920x240 display at 120hz. Not sure if this will work on the MiSTer. All my CRT VGA monitors are in storage at the moment so I haven't tested it out, ...

Re: Scripting news

Not sure why, but in my case the fonts are configured with

Code: Select all

font=/font/filename

and if I try to point to /media/fat/font/filename it doesn't work, as if MiSTer was already adding /media/fat to the path.

This makes ini_settings.sh to fail when selecting fonts. Is it something wrong with my setup?

Re: MidiLink 2.0 looking for testers. (no MIDI devices required)

If that was the issue then the problem would also occur when using a real MT-32 or MUNT on windows when (connecting via remote:UDP) or even when using FluidSynth. That has never been reported. MUNT sometimes exhibits the same behavior using the Minimig core too - which does run the UART at 31250 fo...

Re: MidiLink 2.0 looking for testers. (no MIDI devices required)

I've been testing MidiLink using the internal MUNT/FluidSynth and I have to report the same as other users before, MUNT doesn't sound right, it feels like it cannot handle all the notes and there is a point were it releases several notes at once to get up to speed with the melody. Not sure if it's a...

In my opinion I think it's preferable to give priority to devices that try to follow standards first, and leave proprietary/custom/exotic protocols as a secondary objective.

Re: Direct Bluetooth gamepad support

Can this be also used to pair a BT mouse or keyboard (or combo)?
Is it possible to map one of the 3 buttons on the I/O board to initiate the pairing of controllers? It would be great if we can use one of the LED indicators to signal the pairing/searching/connected mode by its blinking speed.

Does anyone else's ao486 crash constantly on either startup or DOS? For some reason my core crashes almost all the time. Especially when trying to use CTMOUSE.

Fantastic! I found some similar example but they are not necessarily current for MiSTer usage.

Re: Core contributions to MiSTer

If I may suggest, an issue present with the ao486 emulator is that its BIOS it's not fully compatible. It somehow maps things in the 640KB-1MB area in a different way than what most machines at the time used to, and this presents incompatibility issues for software that intends to use the upper memo...

I suspect that the core could arrive in the shape of an Analogue NT Mini, Kickstarter, or something along those lines.

Still, it's good to see the capabilities of MiSTer.
