Re: DB9 Vs USB game control tests

I know of the script but I was wondering if there was any technical reason for it not being default as it is touted as the future of MiSTer input. Are there any bugs or incompatibilities that 1ms polling introduces that would prevent it from being the default? Apparently some gamepads have issues w...

Re: N64 Core WIP

If they do go the special board route, it would be nice if they simply built a more generic expansion board for other additions beyond just this one. I don't have much interest in a world where I'd have to rip my MiSTer apart just to play certain systems. Although some sort of a plugin cartridge st...

Re: Random error on Gorf

There is already Astrocade core for MiSTer: https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/Astrocade_MiSTer What's difference? The home console has an arcade board built around it - uses the same custom chipset, but the arcade version has additional hardware which I have added to the original Astrocade core so th...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next sources released

It always strikes me odd how this community keeps pushing people away, unless they "have the skills to build a core". That's really not what's happening here. There is a deficit of programmers who are able to program cores (many self-taught), and they all have their own pet projects alrea...

Re: Best core for watching video?

Perhaps it is possible to run Kodi on the ARM core and use the FPGA for decoding the video. 8) Not seriously suggesting this, but if the ARM chip were powerful enough to do any serious decoding, I'd love to have a Moonlight client so I could just stream games from another system. The use for me wou...

Just curious if screen tearing would occur if you happen to have an OLED tv or not.

That custom board looks nice indeed, though it's unfortunately plagued with "cables coming out of all directions" syndrome like all the others. If going out of the way to design a custom board, might as well solve this problem as well. It may require a larger board and thus a bit more cos...

Re: NeoGeo romsets.xml Style File for The Arcade and Computer Folders?

Consoles: While it's possible, it's utterly rubbish idea. Who will make ~4000 MRAs for SNES or NES or other consoles with a lot of cores? And why instead of simply open the ROM you will have to add another file (MRA) to start it? I don't see much use of this as it saves a couple button presses. Com...

I do agree that it's not the best The other option is to turn it -90 and put on the left. I just like how compact it is this way. Angled connectors can solve for this. That said, rather than rotating it, why not just set it back from the edge since you seem to have horizontal space and use extender...
