Re: Arcade ROM Builder & Injector GUI

Are either of the tools mentioned in this thread getting any further updates?
Building arcade roms for mister is a PIA and these tools are invaluable IMHO.

Re: MISTer (Main Core)

I am sorry to post this noob question. I would like to do the MiSter Linux update by replacing "linux.img" and "zImage_dtb" by hand on the SD card using a PC because my MiSter is not connected to the internet. I located "zImage_dtb" but were do I get "linux.img&qu...

Re: MISTer (Main Core)

I have the same black screen issue specifically with the latest SNES & main cores (yesterday was the first time I ran the updater script in 1-2 weeks). Super Mario World is now a black screen only when it worked for dozens of hours of play before this latest update. I have tried both my usual TV...

Re: MISTer (Main Core)

So, if the M30 is synced to the USB receiver already, everytime you change the dpad mode it also changed the input mode unintentionally. I didn't realise that. I will try again later tonight with a usb chord. You shouldn't have had to realize it. I am a hardcore lover of 8bitdo products but their M...

Re: MISTer (Main Core)

after more precise look it seems you switch between XInput/DInput. Not between DPAD modes. So You need to read the manual more precise. I'm doing what 8bitdo put in their update log. SELECT + DPAD_UP = DPAD SELECT + DPAD_LEFT= LEFT JOYSTICK Another 8bitdo screw-up... The same exact commands were us...

Re: MISTer (Main Core)

Your suggestion works in "dpad" mode but as I said this is actually an 8bitdo issue since the dpad mode is an analog HAT. Other setups ( ie: RetroPie) have issues with accepting input from the dpad in certain modes as well as the digital L + R shoulder buttons which read as analog +Z and -...

Re: MISTer (Main Core)

I can confirm the EXACT same behavior as gunver with the 8bitdo M30 controller, an 8bitdo USB Receiver and the new MiSTer menu version. Issue does not happen with any other 8bitdo controller nor PS/XB controller when using the same USB receiver. There is a firmware update for the M30, going to try t...

Agreed.

Would love a sample .ini to be on GitHub with all the options listed even if commented out.

Re: MiSTer updater script

The script keeps not only the updated version with the correct name but also a second copy with the date code still intact.

Did you press f12 on the main screen and verify your active version number?

Re: MiSTer updater script

I think the OSD freeze is related to the script name length, the Script menu tries to write it on the left side of the OSD and, if it’s too long, the menu freezes. Try to rename your update script to something shorter i.e. update.sh and try again with the latest MiSTer binary. Regards. Locutus73 Th...

Re: MISTer (Main Core)

Now that the new main MiSTer core supports hiding/showing rbf datecodes, could the system-wide controller configuration in the main core please have the ability to assign a controller button to the temporary show/hide date code function (keyboard f2) please?

Re: MiSTer updater script

I would love it if someone would post the command(s) that would be placed in an "update.sh" to pull the latest script and run it.

I tried the command for putty but it didn't work.

Re: vscale_mode extended functionality - explanation please

Im guessing you use it to allow for smaller jumps in screen size when using integer scaling, so you can get a better fit on your display rather than losing some of the picture!?? How it itself works I understand. I'm looking to find out how it interacts with scandoubling, filters, scan lines, LCD e...

Hello, I wanted to ask for an update so that when using the MiSTer.ini option "video_info=" at a non-zero value, the current scale could also be displayed. It also could be part of the f12 menu as well if that is better/easier. While the current video info tells you your current actual scr...

Splat and StarGate are in a "Release" directory, not "releases", I will easily fix this.

I will fix the paths.
