How actively are you using your MiST?

I use my MiST regularly and love it

my mist lives on a cupboard now, just I powered it on from time to time, quite a disappointment, I got it just for the ST/STE emulation, a lot of demos/games don't run, menu is a bit mess, no way to have different configurations like the minimig, the menu could be better if supported shortcuts

Just out of curiosity, how many of the Verilog/VHDL specialists in the community are capable of developing new chips (not only port cores)? All of them?

I guess the skill level required will be quite different, no?

Anyway, it is always more than the skill I have :-)

Love my mist

its always out and plugged in,, I use it a couple of times a week (used to be more, but family is busy).

but what I would REALLY love is a Dragon 32 core, load cas files from sd , save state , fake (if possible) artifact mode for PAL monitors with ntsc games and lastly analogue joystick support (you need 2 connected for worlds of flight).

If I knew how I would do it myself but I have 0 experience, a little 6502 and 68k asm about 30 years ago :D

I dont regret buying my mist, I will never sell it and will only replace it if I REALLY have to get that core I want,, Dragon 32 (coco3fpga on a different FPGA), or if Mister supported the cores I wanted.

Terasic Altera DE1 Board supports coco3 but I would prefer it on my MIST if possible as the website says "1 board to rule them all"

For ZX Spectrum and other small cores I also got a ZXUNO or a RPi for Amibian :)


How does the ZX Uno stack up against the MiST (for the Spectrum core)?

The ZX-Uno stacks fine against the MiST as for the Spectrum Core, because in first place the ZX-Uno was built for Spectrum-usage and support many types of Spectrum-Choices :)

But I think its harder to get it running and use it right, because the documentation is mostly in spanish.
Some parts of the FAQ are translated in english.
Google or Bing Translator are good for some pages to be read :)

The ZXUno forum is also mostly in spanish - I use there also the translation services. But you could ask/write there in english.

If you know some keyboard-shortcuts and know the Core/BIOS/Upgrade-System than its running find efor this little system.

Some Cores are for VGA (Spectrum up to 63Hz) and some are for the composite port (ZX81)

Now there are new models like the Uno XL for a Spectrum rubber case.
