Re: Scripting news

Thanks Locutus73. I did use notepad++ to paste to after clicking on the raw button in the script itself, but for whatever reason it didn't work. I didn't realise that you need to download the whole thing including the license, readme etc and take it from there. I was looking for the option to downl...

Re: Updater script not working for me

I'm sure I'm probably doing something silly, but this script outputs /tmp/script: /media/fat/scripts/mister_updater.sh /bin/bash^M bad interpreter: no such file or directory when I run it. Has anyone else had this or knows how to sort it? It seems you have CrLf end of line characters (Windows style...

Re: Doom/Doom II (PrBoom-Plus) on Framebuffer/ARM

Btw, did you think about offline installer? It can be 7z/zip archive concatenated to install script as a single file. I remember i saw similar installers on Linux. Yeah, you make a bash (or other) script and concatenate the zip at the end. The shell reads and executes the file as a normal script an...

Could you not just chop the end off an official Wii sensor bar and wire it to USB for MiSTer? https://i.postimg.cc/ZCz8Xhw7/wiisensorbarpinout.png I don’t see the use of this... on PC it is used in order to directly pass raw Wiimote communications to the guest emulated Wii in Dolphin emu, but here ...

Re: Getting Permission denied when running Scripts from USB

Just to add indications: we tried simple "hello world" scripts still getting "permission denied" errors (only from the framebuffer terminal, with SSH it's all ok). Maybe /media/usb0 gets mounted with no execution permissions? @Sorgelig, any idea? Thank you in advance. Regards. Lo...

Re: ScummVM running on FrameBuffer

From an end user point of view, yes, let's have everything inside a zip / tar file / repo instead of having lots of external dependencies. Are you asking for this? because I think what you are asking its already done... The only nuisance I see with this approach is that (I think) the license of eac...

Re: ScummVM running on FrameBuffer

It's better not include it into updater. It's better to keep Linux apps separate. Also it's pretty new area for MiSTer. If there will be other Linux apps/games then it can be a part of separate package, so FPGA and Linux won't be mixed into each other. For interactive updater with menu where you ca...

I would argue that while it's an open source project, changing the scope of what the device does *is* something that needs to be defined and managed and it *is* something that should not be handled with a happy-go-lucky attitude like Locutus seems to approach everything with. Since we can't count o...
