so what about the RTC that I always see in videos on youtube on a list of items you need to build a mister fpga, is it still necessary even if I wont buy an IO board?

1. Built the mister (got the output board and the usb board) - the easy bit.
2. Managed to get the base install on there.
3. Thats about it (where i came unstuck)
Thought id try with the Defender core - go with the easy stuff i thought....went to the wiki - followed the instructions (tried to extract on the pc, worked, in that i got the rom) tried on the mister (that failed looking for a non existent file) took the rom and the rbf file - chucked them on the root and got a dark blue screen and thats about it.
No clue on how to get the network enabled (scoured the net but found nothing, the wiki kinda skates through in a rough way but didnt [for me] seem to be very helpful [i think one of the ending statements was] - follow the linux way...or something like that...

I did try waiting and that didn't seem to help, but thanks for the response. I actually got it to work by reformatting my SD card for a third time and putting all the games in the root of the hard drive instead of the in a games folder. Not sure why that fixed it, but it's working fine now.
