MasterOfGizmo wrote:Maybe some of you misunderstood me. Just the genuine MIST will not be produced any more. And that has nothing to do with open source. It costs money to produce these and you need to sell them to get your money back. Nowadays there are cheaper solutions. These solutions still exist. The clone boards are still there and so is MISTer. The devices are totally fine if you don't care for CE etc.
After all this is a retro community. You should be used to the fact that your hardware is out of production And you all still appreciate fixing your old hardware and caring for it. The knowledge is still there nicely organized in repositories ready for anyone to continue. People already did that. That's why the clones exist.
It surprises me that people now start to delete their repositories. But that's their choice. Open source also means that you are free to do that. Sales just dropped and it doesn't make much sense to produce the real thing any more. These things just happen. You wouldn't delete your Atari ST games collection just because Atari goes out of business, would you?
So if you have a broken MIST then please just get in touch with me or Lotharek. We are still there. We just don't produce new boards.

Let us switch to the Mister and make it to the best fpga platform
MiSt Repo Deleted
Why do you delete your repo if I use my original Lotharek made MiST everyday? We are still active users... And I wanted to download all your new arcade cores

MiST is still available in the shop. Buy it then. Atari ST sources are available to port to other boards.
FPGA core is not a food - it won't be rotten. You still can continue to use as long as you want.
From sales point of view, it's not a good idea to announce the end of manufacturing. It should be announce then end of sales when you have no stock anymore.
