Re: Arcade cores

Does anyone know anything about the Atari Tempest and Major Havoc FPGA system created by Scott Swazey ? I just remembered this and looking at the point I linked to in this video it's running on the de10. https://youtu.be/NVzlWMWNjeQ?t=1951

Re: Arcade cores

The Arkanoid core was released by Ace yesterday: https://github.com/Ace9921/Arcade-Arkanoid_MISTer It's not in the MiSTer repo yet, but it works well. I tried it on my cocktail setup with vertical CRT and the display was spot on, but as it's not setup for MiSTer the F12 or user options menu is not ...

Re: Arcade cores

I did this and it works with no trouble at all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KCDbF7dhPk Currently, arcade cores process keyboard keys. Actually it's not necessary, so arcades could use just joystick buttons. In this case keyboard will force switch to joystick emulation. Probably i will modify ar...

Re: USB Hub board

This is how I am thinking of doing the usb hub board. I moved the brass stand off from the de10 and used them on the usb hub with some feet. The usb is on a header and the power is soldered to the jack and then passes it through to the de10. This is then plug in with no solder required. Photo 19-01-...

Re: USB Hub board

What about using the power socket on the usb board as the main power source and then soldering a barrel lead on the usb board to pass power to the de10. this way the end user will not need to solder anything. I've just wrote how i connect it myself. Of course for generic user there are 2 alternativ...

Re: USB Hub board

How are most people connecting them to 5v with a soldered wire, via the power jack or just using the OTG port (I guess this limited the current ?) I solder the wire to power jack under the board. This is most compact and easier way to supply 5V to USB hub. Of course it's not for generic user. Don't...

I am sorry that I forget the name of the person on this forum that suggested this idea so I could thank him. It was easy to get setup and works very well with the cores I have tried. I have connected my de10-nano to a 15 khz arcade monitor using a j-pac. This does not alter the frequency it just boo...

Re: Arcade cores

I am happy to say I have it working just how I wanted.

The only two that didn't work was bombjack as that is vga only and moon cresta that need a dip switch change to flip the screen.

Hi , I am looking for some help with my setup. I am trying to get my de10-nano working with a J-pac interface and the IO board in my arcade cabinet. So far the only arcade core I can get working on the crt monitor is Galaga and it works perfectly with the J-Pac and the arcade controls after I change...

That's a very nice cabinet.
