So, I just built my Mister two days ago...
I have a .hdf I had built for RetroPie and UAE4ARM using the instructions here: https://thecakeisaliegaming.wordpress.c ... 2SikcpxITo
A couple of little tweaks and I have it working in 640x400x16 interlaced on Minimig.
I've set up a bunch of WHDload games in a directory. I was playing Great Giana Sisters, and between levels, it hangs for a moment, every time. It FEELS like it is about to crash - screen goes black, music stops - then it resumes as normal.
I just loaded a bootable .adf of Giana sisters, and it doesn't display this behavior.
So I went to my RetroPie to see if it had been doing it all along and I just had never noticed it before. Nope. On the Pi, loading the bootable hard drive and launching the WHDLoad image - no pause or stutter between levels.
Any ideas or suggestions? I feel like it wasn't stuttering like this at first on the Mister - but just started doing this - but that may be my imagination and I have no way to confirm.
Also, the Minimig wiki page says:
The zip file contains a minimig-mist-1_2.rbf file, which is the FPGA core, and a firmware.upg file, which can be used to upgrade the firmware on the ARM microcontroller (usually, there is no need to upgrade the firmware, unless it is specifically mentioned to do so). Both files should be placed on the root of your SD card. If you want this core to be the default, you need to rename it to core.rbf.
I assumed this to mean that if I renamed the .rbf file to core.rbf - it would automatically load into the minimig core when I turn on the Mister.
I executed cp minimig-mist-1_2.rbf core.rbf and cold booted the Mister -I see a file named core.rbf, it is the right size... and if I select it, it loads into minimig - but it won't launch automatically on cold start or reboot.
Is there something I'm missing?
