When rebooting mister with this custom resolution I see static screen and OSD will not display.

But using this 1080p custom resolution video_mode=1920,48,32,80,1080,3,5,23,138653 and everything is okay.. boots normally.


Which version does it work on? I have tried older menu and MiSTer versions but couldn't get it to work at all. The oldest I tried were versions 0627.

@Sorgelig, paulbnl.
Do you see the problem in paulbnl's log?

Incorrect amount of items in video_mode parameter: 0

?

i don't see problem from the log. Latest lines show the parameters sent to the core.
Anyone is welcome to improve HDMI output. From my side i've done everything i could and currently i have no plans for that.

1920x1200 is beyond the official max 1920x1080. It may work or may not.. On my MiSTer it works ok.

Finally found the issue. The full 1920x1200 framebuffer simply does not fit in the allocated 8MB and it hangs.

Changing the fbsize to half resolution makes it work.

You can try to change the framebuffer console resolution from the command line, but using reduced colour depth :

Code: Select all

vmode f rgb16


(The scaler, when used with input video, stores only the source image, high resolution output is generated "on the fly", so it usually it doesn't uses as much memory as the framebuffer mode)

Half-res FB resolution on 1920x1200 is pretty much good resolution.
Anyway, MiSTer has no GPU and will have hard time to work with 1920x1200 in Linux.

P.S.: FB has no 24bit support due to extremely low performance in this mode. So only 32bit for true color is supported and it definitely wont fit to 8MB with 1920x1200. so either 16bits or half-res should be used in 1920x1200.

P.P.S: FB supports indexed 8bit color mode which is enough for text use. And it's fastest mode.

Shouldn't automatic fb_size be half size above 1000 width? It seems this was intended but it still ends up full size.

1. Why direct_video is not in mister.ini yet (HDMI limited 16..255 already is)?
2. To 'overcome' the HDMI artifacts I use 1440x1080 for now, it's 4:3 and full 1080p.
I'm never going to use mister with 16:9 aspect ratio anyway... I know some people like it though. 8O

yes, it's supposed to be automatic halfres if fb_size=0 (or undefined).
Need to verify why it doesn't work for you.

JamesF wrote:1. Why direct_video is not in mister.ini yet (HDMI limited 16..255 already is)?

It's not a problem to omit it. It simply means direct_video=0
MiSTer may work without MiSTer.ini at all. All parameters will have default values. Just forgot to update the ini.. Will be included later.

probably it's a typo.. I will re-check the code.
Currently, if you comment fb_size out in ini file, then it will be 0.

Lately was noticing some jerky movement of mouse pointer in minimig core, I thought was due to recent changes to the core but found that ao486 core was showing same jerkyness. Reverting to old Mister_Main solved the issue, with butter smooth mouse movement. MiSTer_20191014 is the first framework that makes this bug happen, maybe something to do with "Fix OSD input lag"

I also noticed this in the Minimig core. I can really notice it if I try to move the mouse in circles, even on a workbench desktop, but also in the terminal program "term", which in my setup runs in a HiRes, non interlaced NTSC screen.

I have not tried it in other cores yet.

i've tried to disable that fix for OSD and didn't notice the difference in mouse move in Minimig.
You can disable it by adding break; into line aroun 3080 in input.cpp so while(1){} will exit after first input query. So if you can, then try and see the difference.

We tried your fix and indeed it does not solve mouse jerkyness. I have tried different cores, like fxcast, macplus and ao486 and they don't exhibit this problem, only ao486 mouse movement lags when disk access happens in Windows 95, but this is normal behavior on PCs.
All minimig cores show mouse jerkyness when accesing adf disc, for example while loading workbench 1.3 if I move mouse and has this jerkyness nomatter which version of minimig core (don't remember if this was normal behaviour on real Amigas). The difference is that when finished loading disc, MiSTer_20191014 and upwards still shows this jerkyness. Maybe has something to do with disk access? I think it is not related to CPU because trying fx68k or tg68k gives same results.

I also noticed jerky mouse pointer movements when using Minimig on my Mister which I received just a few days ago. I managed to make the mouse pointer much much smoother by buying a different mouse with less dpi. However, it is still nowhere as smooth as on a real Amiga 500 or Amiga 1200, where the mouse motion is always perfectly butter smooth.

MiSTer.zip

this version should fix mouse jerkyness in Minimig.

The DS4 doesn't have long battery life at all and the bright blue light doesn't help.
To preserve some battery can we make the blue light less strong?

I've no idea. I never explored this option.
But since you care - you will have to find the technical info :)

Currently i'm busy by other things. But you still can help to shorten the time of implementation.
DualShock 4 is supported directly by kernel. So you don't have to deal with hid reports directly. Probably you can simply send the data to kernel module through sysfs (using simple echo >/...). So you can explore this area.
