Hope didn't break other games.


I'll test once the "mister" build is updated
Thanks Slingshot!

Hello fellow SMSers,

Allow me to put here a modified-for-MiST copy of the message I put on the MiSTer forum recently, because as you know the core share the same sources for the two plateforms :

I just released a new core, from a new branch, named sms_mist_20190507.rbf and you can find it here https://github.com/theflynn49/MiSTer_co ... /mode2-msx

This core supports
- mode2 graphics (like in f16 fighter)
- SMS/MSX dual compatible games (like in Cyborg Z),
- SG-1000 games (like in .. err you know.)
- there are a lot of SMS enhancements ahead of the march release

The question that arose is that this core has a lot of modifications in the graphic engine, more than usual, and maybe I broke a few things ...

So it would be nice if you'd test it thoroughly to see if you can find any regression, I mean any SMS native game that worked but doesn't work properly with this new core, and, at the end, choose which branch you want to keep : the new one or the old one more simple.

A few more goodies :

- most SMSMSX games need the OSD parameter "no bios"
- some of them need a patch :

F-1 Spirit : adr $0000 is : F3 C3 E4 00 00 00 should be : 41 42 F3 C3 E4 00
Knightmare II : adr $0000 is : F3 C3 A5 00 00 00 s/b : 41 42 F3 C3 A5 00
Nemesis2 : adr $0000 is F3 C3 E9 00 00 00 s/b : 41 42 F3 C3 E9 00
Penguin Adv : adr $0000 is F3 C3 A6 00 00 00 s/b : 41 42 F3 C3 A6 00

Thank you all.

Ok, perhaps I understand: this new core for MiST doesn't incorporate MSX mapper.

Anyway thanks for the improvements :cheers:

@slingshot : lol ... what's not to like in it ? You know how much fun this is when the thing gets alive.

@DanyPPC : my bad, this is confusing. There is a small list of about 10 games, written mainly by Zemina, said to be "dual compatible" with SMS and MSX (the same physical cartridge works in both machines). This is what this core supports. To play a MSX game you need the MSX core, I guess.

see: http://www.smspower.org/Tags/MSXCompatibleROM and http://www.smspower.org/Tags/MSXPort

Just a question... can a black or some colour or artwork border be put around the Game Gear games? Border changes when you are playing and it's a bit annoying sometimes...

I'm very happpy with this core :D :cheers: :cheers: . Apart from the border in Game Gear, the only problem I've found is the FM music on Afterburner, in the title screen, it sounds bad :shrug:

Thanks for your great work!

Remember quite a lot of GameGear games have been converted to SMS format. I mean ROM hacks, not official SMS versions of GG games.

So you should get a better screen size. I love the GG Shinobi games.

I think the website is SMS Power which hosts the patch files (no ROMs).

Only few games have been correctly pached. I tried some months ago all the patches and I have four in my MiST card. I stay with The GG games :-)

In the MiSTer version of the SMS core, there is an option to disable the border, so that everything around the visible screen area is black. It might be possible to port this over to the MiST core.

Try the input test in the OSD, it's independent of the core.

Yes very big evolution !!!
i check many core with same usb pad from mist beginning :): easy before and now need more work:

for Sega Master System Core:
1) setting joystick_remap for all your usb pad (min right,left,down,up,A,B,select,start)
2) setting Swap joysticks to yes

and you can play alex kid for example :D

Probably you have a gamepad which had hardcoded mapping in the firmware, but this was removed I think last December. So you really must had an old release installed.
