Re: Ultimate chiptune development tool?

This is because no one used decaped die shots to get precise schematics of analog part. Once it will be done it can be simulated precisely in both FPGA and software. Otherwise we wouldn't watch movies, listen the songs and many many other things today recorded to/played from digital sources. All ki...

Re: Ultimate chiptune development tool?

There's also a lack of analog hardware needed to reproduce some chips' sound accurately. The SID will never sound as accurate emulated as the real thing because of the analog components.

Re: RGB vs VGA monitors and simple cables and explanation for MIST/MISTER

I've posted elsewhere about it, but I was hoping for a Mist/MiSTer 15 pin VGA to 9 pin RGB for my Commodore monitors, but I did see some interesting MiSTer settings for VGA. If my MiSTer is up to date and I want to hook it up to a VGA monitor (CRT), can I use a standard VGA connection cable from th...

Re: A web browser on MIster

It's not hard to load LXDE and get a modern web browser with full internet connection speed. You even can watch Youtube in low quality. There is no point to use very limited Amiga browser with serial line speed. I guess if you want to avoid several steps in getting software from aminet onto your di...

Re: Original analog video without I/O board? Possible!

Re: Genesis Core

I COMPLETELY agree it defeats the purpose of FPGA. "Why not just use a PC or Pi3/4 for 32x emulation" is what echos in my mind as well as many others. Still, with the recent Smokemonster interview, I remember mention of emulators being possible on MiSTer, and thought about reasonable use ...

Re: Can the second sd card slot on the IO board be used for extra storage?

It depends on core implementation. If core will access the secondary SD card, then it has to implement FAT2/exFAT support inside the core which is resource hungry feature. So it's unlikely any console will be able to support the secondary SD card. I'm curious if you plan to continue including that ...

Re: Genesis Core

I wonder if it is possible to use the ARM side of the DE-10 Nano to get pseudo 32x support. If not, maybe like how ScummVM runs, a linux based port of a 32x emulator (Fusion?) will appear. That kind of defeats the purpose of having the FPGA at that point. If the 32x logic can't fit in the DE10's FP...

Re: USB Floppy support on MiSTer? Possible? Needed?

USB floppy drives are not possible because USB floppy drives are PC compatible only and won't read Amiga disks. Maybe an old FDD floppy drive can be used at least in read only mode if someone implements an adapter for FDD to expansion port, but someone would have to design an expansion port to FDD ...

Re: [RFC] Mister open source bounties anyone?

MiSTer is an evolving project, which involves core maintenance. A bounty may get the core made, but it wouldn't necessarily keep it working. Something like this could pave the way for a minefield of unsupported/dead cores lying around. Or even redundant cores *cough*retorarch*cough*.
