You can just use EmuTOS, its sources are available under GPL license:
https://github.com/emutos/emutos

It has has a builtin HD driver, boots much faster, and its disk handling is in latest version faster than with "real" Atari TOS.

There are some dirty programs, mainly old floppy-only games & demos that don't work with it: https://github.com/emutos/emutos/blob/m ... atible.txt

But most of the Atari ST/STE/TT programs *do* work with it:
https://hg.tuxfamily.org/mercurialroot/ ... emutos.txt

(Also Falcon programs that don't need HiColor mode or DSP, work with it, but that's not relevant for MiST as it doesn't emulate Atari Falcon.)


Nifty, will add it to my list of things to download while waiting for the Polish post to get me my MiST (tracking information I can't read is just frustrating).

I have just received my MIST. It looks really nice. Unfortunately I do not know the VHDL stuff, so hope somebody will continue mainly with ST core development. But I like also other core especially the new Vectrex one :)

Got my MiST, and overall quite happy with it. Only real complaint is that the Atari and Amiga logos I wanted to put on it wont stick with the finish that's on the metal.

Dang... just saw a MiSTICA in the "wild". Guess there really are knock-offs floating around out there now. I guess the good news is that it's "100% MiST compatible" so any core work done on it should trickle over to here as well. But still a bummer to see such blatant copies.

MISTICA has VGA, VIDEO, S-VIDEO and RGB outputs, very useful !

But no serial or MIDI (shrug).

MiSTICA may be a clone, but there was clearly effort put into making useful upgrades and the pcb was clearly reworked significantly. MiST itself was reworked and upgraded from Minimig hardware if I'm not mistaken.

Other clones (which I won't name) remove features instead of adding anything. It is still a reworked PCB but price wise not that far from a Lotharek MIST. So that doesn't look like a very good deal.

Either.way MIDI seems to be exclusive to the original MiSTs, so they still fill that niche.

They use Tape input option on one of UART pins.
