So I did that now. Unsure if it's working because whenever I launch a core it still drops the video signal. Console cores are working fine. I did a clean install of mister files on the sd card and i'm having the same issue: no video signal! very confused.
Be aware, most arcades are using funky refresh rate, like Chris23235 pointed out before me, the some settings for mister is to sync the HDMI refresh rate with the core, in that setup most monitor will have sync issue with some arcades and console core.
I'm on HDMI, and I have the vsync set 0. I tried the script that was like most compatible video settings. some of the games work (1943) and some don't produce a video signal (burger time, dig dug).
I don't know if it helps anyone to diagnose, but some of them only work from the "alternative" menu in the arcade section. (pac-man - midway) and then when an arcade core does not produce a video signal the lights on the i/o board turn off.
