Re: FPGA Utilization Chart

Yeah, I want to know how it works. That's why I asked.
Does it load all the mappers when you load the core, or does it load just the mapper used for the ROM that is loaded?

Re: Discover new content thread (Demos, mods, homebrew)

Y'all should check out NES maker https://www.thenew8bitheroes.com/ They are making some pretty darn good homebrew tools (really approaching pro quality), and there are several thousand people in the community; so, there should be a plethora of good new NES titles emerge within the next year or so.

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. ^^ yeah, there were so many interesting GPUs in the 90s... this type of dev, would really open up some options for PC...

Re: FPGA Utilization Chart

Interesting stats, funny to see the NES requires more FPGA ressources (except RAM) than NeoGeo. Is there room for improvement ? Think of the hundreds of mappers. So all the mappers are loaded in parallel? I guess it doesn't matter as long s there are transistor to spare? plenty of room at the hotel...

Re: MiSTer on Gstory portable screen/case

This looks like generic HDMI display. Make sure you use normal HDMI output, not direct video. There is a question if this display supports other than 60Hz video. as an update, 50 Hz seems to be working for most cores, although, i tried a european mega drive rom, "Aleste" and i got a blank...

Re: MiSTer on Gstory portable screen/case

So, I got it working by putting a menu graphic in /media/fat/menu (although for some reason it doesn't actually show up, but maybe i need to update MiSTer or something). I also got a usb->barrel plug adapter to power the mister from a lithium battery pack. I got this bundle of doo-dads from Amazon.....

Re: MiSTer on Gstory portable screen/case

yes, i made sure to turn off direct video. I had hoped to specifically use the GStory PSone screen rather than just a plain screen, because it provides a nice case to protect the de10, as well as store controllers and screen. I noticed some people on youtube have graphics loading on the pillarboxes ...

MiSTer on Gstory portable screen/case

I thought it would be grand to play mister portably by getting one of those G-Story screen+case mad for the PS mini. However, the GStory screen doesn't like it when i load a core, the black screen puts it into no-signal standy mode, and only restarting the MiSTer will wake the screen. meh i thought ...

Re: SNES core

I'll add my 2 cents. I was playing the (9-12) SNES core with hdmi to VGA adapter (not direct-video mode).

every game i tried worked for a little while and then went black-screen.

Donkey Kong Country had garbled graphics in stage 2. I got a black screen as soon as I entered Kranky Kong's shack.

Re: We must not forget to implement these British microcomputers of the 80s in FPGA

I think FPGAs are becoming more and more popular as they become more capable and accessible to the modern programmer. The more folks who learn to program in Verilog or VHDL, the more we will see these older computers become new again. I was stoked to see that the last issue of Make magazine dedicate...
