Re: Joystick testing thread

I mean even the older 8bitdo 2.4ghz receivers arent usb they are for the classic line of consoles. For me personally i cant really tell or feel lag with the 8bitdo bluetooth controllers but maybe i'm just not remembering the feel of playing without a bluetooth at this point. https://www.8bitdo.com/...

Re: Joystick testing thread

I was just reading through the test. That seems to apply only to the Megadrive bluetooth Retro receiver! "The Bluetooth version of the M30 is a completely different story. While it averaged 21ms, it swung as low as 5.9ms and as high as 38ms (!!!!). Something to keep in mind is that the bluetoo...

so the 2.4ghz controllers work with mister as in just plug in play ? Hm, good that you ask. The 2.4GHz USB dongles are made for the Genesis Mini and work with Switch, too https://www.8bitdo.com/m30-2-4g-for-genesis-mini-mega-drive-mini/ It is not available here yet, but since the Genesis Mini works...

Re: Joystick testing thread

Thanks for the info, I just tried cable, and yes, he reacts faster. But I find the control pad especially worth mentioning. I have never been able to steer so precisely. I still have the brown dongle. Is it faster than standard bluetooth?? The brown and grey dongles are the same (bluetooth) and not...

Re: Joystick testing thread

Hello, if someone is looking for a good gamepad I can recommend the new Megadrive controller M30 from 8Bitdo (bluetooth). I have that one, too, but you need to be aware that it has 21ms input lag. If you care about low lag you should use wired or 2.4GHz pads. The M30 is now available as 2.4GHz vers...

paulbnl did a great job in refactoring the code, so now it uses BRAM and minimum logic and therefore is good to integrate. That's awesome to hear! But in general, I still don't see much use of that.

Re: Gpu core and Kodi running on arm?

Well, if we are talking GPUs I would think SVGA for ao486 would maybe be more doable and have more purpose, although I can sympathise with your wish for a jack of all trades device.

For Amiga 500 create a config in the OSD that has "CPU = 68000, Turbo=NONE, Chipset=ECS, chipRAM=0.5MB, slowRAM=0.5MB, Kickstart 1.3". AFAIK most A500 had OCS chipset, ECS arrived later with A500+ / A600. You are right and I indeed use OCS. I missed that detail when I copied the line from...

Thanks to both of you. So there are tons of roms in the amiga folder. Do I just copy one to the sd root and rename it kick.rom? Or does it need to be a specific rom? None said kickstarter. Was that the wrong folder? On your MiSTer SD-Card create a folder "Amiga" in the root of the SD card...

For Amiga Forever ROMS you also need the ROM.KEY. Did you copy that over? There is no more ROM.KEY in the current versions of Amiga Forever. The kickroms just work. @Yoda313: In the Root of the SD Card create a folder "Amiga" and copy the roms into that folder. You don't need to rename th...

Try formatting an SD-Card with Rufus as exFAT, it can properly format them and delete all partitions that might be on the SD: https://rufus.ie Then try the MiSTer setup tool again.
