MiST - UART on Midi Model

Are there any UART pins available for the MiST model that has MIDI included on the PCB. I fear that it is just replaced by the MIDI pins, but has some additional logic attached and so is not possible to just select certain MIDI pins either.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Acorn Electron core

Let me know if you need the few lines of code that load from tape through the ADC. It certainly wasn't rocket science.

Re: ScummVM running on FrameBuffer

I seem to have a very bad lag on the sound with ScummVM. Is there any way to changes settings to get rid of this lag?

Thanks.

Re: Acorn Electron core

I have added tape loading from external tape through the ADC pins as I did for the Oric. The exact same code worked here too. Again all credit goes to Oldgit the original porter of the core. I do find loading UEF files useful, as there are plenty of things like cover tapes that exist in the TOSEC th...

Re: MiSTer (FPGA): Oric1 / Atmos Core

Oldgit - perfect - long term the internal file parsing has to be the way forward.
Sorgelig - i think it was the line: assign ‘Z to the ADC bus, maybe waking it up.

Ron - this is for MiSTer. I think to be able to do it in MiST through UART you will need to solder a circuit for input.

Re: MiSTer (FPGA): Oric1 / Atmos Core

I'm happy to announce I managed to implement tape loading through the ADC, with ground pins and pin 1 connected to a mono tape cable. It seems to be as sensitive as the original Oric for tape loading, maybe a little be better. Have fun! Next to implement the easy tape loading (for the user, not the ...

Re: MiSTer (FPGA): Oric1 / Atmos Core

All useful to know which works with actual tape input, since I can look at more examples of code that is working. Currently, I'm just looking at the Spectrum for my example, so only one to go by.

Thanks!

Re: MiSTer (FPGA): Oric1 / Atmos Core

Thanks Sorgelig. Yes, well the logic seems sound. But nothing happening right now.

There are reports that other cores on Mistica or maybe MiST was able to load from external means. If that is true does anyone know which core was used and what the input pin was??

thanks.

Re: Newbie questions

It's possible with the BBC, Electron, C64, Spectrum, Atari 800 etc.

Now the ORIC?!?!?!

Re: MiSTer (FPGA): Oric1 / Atmos Core

Asking for help here - would it be possible to connect up the ltc2038 module for ADC from the Spectrum core to the Oric, TAPE_IN CB1 pin? In theory that should allow it to read tapes from external sources like the Spectrum?

I'm trying to code it but I am such a novice. Any help appreciated.

Re: Oric Atmos core

Looking at the code it seems the tape input maybe connected to the UART, which is connected to the MIDI port? I made up a breadboard cable to try to bridge the mono output from my PC speaker to the MIDI connectors, but I don't seem so to get any signs of life. Am I right about the code being hooked ...

Re: MiSTer (FPGA): Oric1 / Atmos Core

Currently there are implementations of Oric on both MiST and MiSTer. What is the state of tape loading? I note from above that it should not be possible to load from actual tape on MiSTer, but is it possible on MiST through the audio jack? I have not been able to get that to work currently. It would...

I seem to be having an issue with MiSTer with the latest ZX-Spectrum core. If I try to take it into the 48k mode it just freezes. I don't think it can find the appropriate ROM. The notes of the ROMs in the github page does say something about "use specific 48k rom". Anybody know anything a...
