Also let's not forget that the main interest in ijor's core seems to be on how it can be used to improve other cores.
If the goal is to expose the ST to more people I think it failed

The greasemonkey solution works for me, in fact I modified it to hide "FPGA" posts as well. I'm by no means an expert at greasemonkey scripts. After some JQuery googling:

Code: Select all

$("li").show().has("a:contains('MiST'),a:contains('FPGA')").hide();

I like this solution since it doesn't impact others and I can click it off at any time to see what's going on.

lp: how do you install this script? Also, is it possible to extend to Unread posts?

Mikro, LP posted a part of Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey script.
You have to add a header to it. A complete script you can find it in my post #1.
You can also add other pages like Unread posts with "@include" directive:

Code: Select all

// @include http://atari-forum.com/search.php?search_id=unreadposts
Lynx II / Jaguar / TT030 / Mega STe / 800 XL / 1040 STe / Falcon030 / 65 XE / 520 STm / SM124 / SC1435
SDrive / PAK68/3 / Lynx Multi Card / LDW Super 2000 / XCA12 / SkunkBoard / CosmosEx / SatanDisk / UltraSatan / USB Floppy Drive Emulator / Eiffel / SIO2PC / Crazy Dots / PAM Net
Hatari / Steem SSE / Aranym / Saint

Not sure it matters, but point your browser at this forum first just in case.
Click the greasemonkey icon and then "new user script..."
A tab with an editor appears.
Paste in the script and click the small "disk icon" to save it.
Close the tab and that's it.
Give it test run. ;)

I think the goal is more to provide 100% ST compatible HW for people interested in ST, which can optionally run also much faster than the original HW, offer better compatibility to modern displays and faster disk.

As the same FPGA device can run also other HW implementations (Amiga, Archimedes, SinclairQL, C64, VIC-20, x86 etc), people interested in those might also try ST. After all, Atari has also 100% legal / open source ROM / OS (EmuTOS), which should make testing ST much easier than e.g. Amiga.

I am not talking about the goal of the st core, but the point of including so much content unrelated to the st in an st forum.

Oh man, thank you so much. For all the others who have actually no idea at all like I used to ;), TamperMonkey is a Chrome extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... fkfo?hl=en.

So you install that and then follow lp's guide (it's slightly different in Chrome but you'll get the idea). I have created "the final script", merged all the suggestions together + added unanswered posts as well. Works a treat!

Sometimes under Linux Mint with Firefox I need to load the site twice (active topics) to make the script do its job. Does anybody know what could be the problem?

BTW thanks a lot for the tip and the script.

Yeah, I have just noticed that, too. For me it worked to jump into another 'section' (i.e. from unread to active and back from the left menu), no need to reload the whole page.

Looks they are still here in "unread posts" but it seems to work for the others.

I'd like to say a big ' thank you' for the fact that you allow us fpga people to stay here. I fully understand that many discussions have become pretty off-topic for an Atari forum and I really appreciate that you still tolerate us. And we don't take any offence if you guys 'lower our volume a little bit'.

Still we sometimes have Atari related things happening so I really hope a few of you sometimes still consider us to give valuable contributions to the Atari scene.

Sure not everybody is fond of fpga boards. But one day they may also help conserve something you enjoy. And if it's only the fact that we help documenting the inner workings of the Atari hardware then I am already happy.

Have a nice Christmas and thank you for your patience.

I've been a purist myself for the longest time but even then, I'm kind of surprised by the amount of people seeming to have almost genuine hatred toward seeing anything regarding these MiST/Mister hardware devices/threads, especially considering they are directly related and quite specific to ST use, even with MIDI ports to boot! That's kind of incredible to have. I haven't seen this much dislike for emulators so I'm unsure why in the case of MiST, for example, people want to banish it to the woods ;-) It would seem the preference for a dedicated FPGA over software would be stronger but appears to be quite reversed.

So what is it that everyone hates so much about them?

My STe is giving me problems (go figure) and I love the real deal authentic hardware over anything else, recreation or otherwise, but at the end of the day it doesn't make sense financially to gamble $300+ on another one with unknown issues to come or spend even more for one in perfect working order when I can get a dedicated MiST device and use it just as if it's actual ST hardware for half the price. Plus it will most likely far outlive any ST I could get to replace what I currently have and that's kind of reassuring as well.

Maybe I'll get my issues with the STe sorted and I can use it as a Cubase machine but I've already got plans for the MiST as a dedicated machine for other things now and it actually excites me that I can do it so cheap and it'll take up almost no room at all. Realistically, I'll probably end up selling this half borked STe and just use the funds to offset a MiST, which I'm truly grateful for existing.

But hide the threads? Bizarre.... just overlook them like you would with any thread you don't like. I don't even see that many pop up but maybe because they're already being hidden.

On other forums using the same underlying engine there is the concept of “off topic” forum and sub-forums which don’t appear unless you add them in your profile.

I own a MiSTer but I am really only interested in reading about Atari cores here on AF

as the author of that topic and "Mist/Mister remover script" I feel obliged to comment:

First of all, I'm huge the fpga fan. I see that as a future for our belowed Atari - consoles, 8bit, 16 and 32bit - all of them.
Also, I'm impresed of MiST. Many many thanks for your hard work you've done for us.

I'm subscribing various non-atari thematic forums. I'm here on Atari-Forum.com for Atari related stuff like news, support, bargain etc. Nowadays, my main landing pages here "active_topics" and "newposts" are mainly occupated by non-atari related stuff. That's very sad.

I'd like to emphasize, that topic isn't against MiST/Mister/FPGA. It is just to preserve our small and decreasing Atari world.
I'm not about removing that stuff from Atari-forum, I'm about just separating "active_topics" / "newposts" for both platforms.

Is the problem with the Mist board related to the profusion of Megadrive and Oric Atmos Posts ? Or is this about the FGPA idea in general ?

I see personally the Mist/FGPA as the future of atari computing, even if I do not own one, and I would be sad if the atari core relevant threads would have to go :?
Now for non-atari cores, separate forum like Google News, or hidden subboards, I dont really know the phpBB terminology in detail, I would agree with that.

An occasion to thanks the Forum Owners and Moderators for their work, drawing a line, between the right and wrong, and keeping the php stuff up to date is no small work.

this forum, for me, is just perfect!

as an atari guy with a huge collection from st to firebee, it is my first source for everything atari related. but, i also own a mister board and i'm very happy not to change to another forum.

The problem - atleast for me - is that the top 15 or so topics in the "Active topics" feed are MiSTer specific (hardware, Linux-stuff, cores for other platforms) and not Atari-related at all.
