Re: NeoGeo FPGA recreation crowdfunding !

Ok, that was the point :lol:
Anyway, back in topic, did you take a look to furrtek’s github?
Do you think it can eventually lead to something useful for MiSTer?

Thank you in advance.
Regards.

Re: NeoGeo FPGA recreation crowdfunding !

As MiSTer is open source and everything is open unlike most FPGA projects (i mean HW projects), everybody is welcome. Currently i have no interest to chat about FPGA on discord as it's pretty much useless. I believe most enumerated above people already know about MiSTer. So, anyone can come to gith...

Anyway if you ( sorgelig ) or anyone wants to join Classic Gaming on Discord, you’re all invited. https://discord.gg/EX57xnF It’s an interesting place, with many FPGA developers often chatting and discussing about current and future implementations.

Re: NeoGeo FPGA recreation crowdfunding !

If by “dead-end” you mean that, as any closed source project, it has nothing to do with preservation I’m with you 100%. yes, i mean exactly this. btw, Analogue Nt has big boost in compatibility because of real cart support. Without cart compatibility is goes down even according statement from Kevtr...

Re: Linux (with GUI) release

I suggest we build a shell script that we can put into github with the changes. Interesting. Some years ago I managed to install a full blown Debian on my old Sharp Zaurus using debootstrap (from its embedded Linux). Maybe it could be used in order to prepare a script that can be launched from stan...

Re: Checksums for Arcade Rom's (MD5)

No, i didn't use specific MAME ROM set. I understood that. You probably are misunderstanding telling that every MAME release requires matching ROM set. They are adding or correcting ROMs as they progress in development, but most ROMs are remain the same - names and CRCs are included in source code ...

I've gathered ROMs from different sites and even some torrents. So, there is no one-stop site for ROMs. I wasn’t asking for a specific one-stop site (it’s easy to be misunderstood, and I think linking such things is not legal and/or ethical), I was asking if you used a specific MAME ROM set, but wi...

Brilliant implementation Sorgelig! So you didn't end up with a core presenting a multiboot menu, but each core can represent a multiboot main menu entry if paired with a txt file with uboot parameters… so we can have Amiga core, C64 core and Ubuntu core! Very sleek. I suppose the Ubuntu core is Tera...

Great news, the Xbox one controllers work in wired mode with the new Linux image! Only caveat is that the analog stick is way too sensitive so best not to use it at all. It's probably related to the range problems Sorgelig pointed out). you can easily check the analog range in console when running ...
