Re: What does "Update framework" mean?

I notice that often updates to core have "Update framework" in the description. What does that mean? Thanks Probably best to think of it as "background stuff". If you're just a user then that sort of update will likely be changes that you may never be aware of although it may fa...

Re: MiSTer NES Core

Rather than using headers as they're used traditionally would it maybe be an idea for the system to create a text database where it saves details of the different ROMs by ROM name and the header details as well as settings for that particular game and refers to the database whenever a game is loade...

Re: Classic Gaming [Discord Server] - MiSTer Community

I've never used Discord before, so I thought to give it a try and read a bit what people are discussing about MiSTer, but unfortunately it does not seem to work for me. What I did: - I clicked on the link - chose my username - cancelled the email nagging popup - read the intro channel asking me to ...

Re: MISTer (Main Core)

Definitely for me.

I was wondering if at some point there would also be the option to also rotate the controls with the screen as you usually see in re-releases of classic SHMUPs? I really have no idea how complex this would be to do but as somebody who sometimes uses the rotate screen option without being able to phy...

I don't actually have anything to show yet but after spending ages looking for something that would work well for me I think I'm going to buy a refurbished thin client case from eBay.

It's a common problem.

If you get that sort of issue the best thing to do initially is to retry it a few times, that will hopefully sort it out for you.

It's working for me but the number of attempts it takes to get it working is certainly more than it used to be. It used to take several attempts in the past but it had got the stage of booting up correctly almost every time recently. I can't say for certain but I think the latest NES update worked O...

Re: MiSTer NES Core

The core from a few days ago didn't help the issues for me but today's core has sorted fixed it for me.

Strange that the previous core fixed it for some people, today's fixed it for others but there are still some people having the issue.
