Re: It's no more a MiSTery

Good to see you only found one difference in 40 disks :) The answer is easy: the "good things" show that the GLUE+MMU combo is created after the real schematics, the other flickering one that the MFP is a functional recreation, which might still has imperfections. However not much, I think. Oh yes!...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

But it's a good sign that bugs from the real world also replicated :) Reallarry has been very generous and tested all the things I've found where the emulator behaviour does not match the MiSTery behaviour. In this reply, I'm going to pioneer something I'm calling the "Good news sandwich". The brea...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

P.O.V 37 - Ste Presentation 4 There's a flickering group of pixels on the bottom line of the main picture, towards the right, were it splits for the scrolling section below. On Hatari the pixels momentary flicker when the magnifier above scrolls to the right, but it's otherwise stable. I think this ...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

Yes!

I'm currently working on PoV 35.

Have I mentioned that I'm reading all scrolltexts on these disks? I might make an exception for a 6 hour scroller or whatever it is on the B.I.G Demo. :lol:

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

Maybe it's happening on original HW, too, just less obvious with a CRT display. Either increasing or decreasing the DE -> Timer B delay makes it worse. My MiST is on a CRT. :) I'm moving on with other disks, but at some point I'll post a video in case reallarry has a moment to test on his always-to...

Did you get it from here:

https://github.com/sorgelig/SAMCoupe_MI ... r/releases

I saw the MiSTer Sam Coupe Core had been recently updated.
Yep! Grabbed the most recent one from that folder.

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

I've got five straight days off and I've hooked up my MiST so I'm grabbing the latest core and then will continue with PoV disks.

I will say this -- having used the Spectrum Next for a couple of months, I *hate* the cheap keyboard I'm using with the MiST and think a new one is in my near future.

Re: Keeping disk mounted after powering off?

The thing that's always bothered me is that doing "Cold Reset" from the menu ejects the floppy and inserts DISK_A. As a workaround I tend to go and reselect my TOS version which gets me a cold boot without a disk swap. But I haven't brought this up much as the devs have done such amazing work and th...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

I think I could fix this finally. Also the BLT3 in SkidRow. Interestingly the proper fix (at least what I believe is the proper fix) still allow de-syncing in some cases (about 2 times out of 10), and this is ack'ed in the scrolltext, too (that's why I believe the proper fix is found). Maybe that w...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

I've tried it with some fears that something must be very broken, then when I saw that part, I realized that it's almost OK :) Yeah, there are some glitches, I think it's a slight MFP problem, sometimes the upper or lower border opening doesn't work. Sorry, didn't mean to scare you. :) The effect s...

Re: [ZX Spectrum Core] New Update

Latest firmware? Latest Spectrum ROM from Sorgelig repo? I have another PVM and will test today with it. Best regards, Goran I hadn't updated to the latest Firmware, but I have now and it still works. Latest Spectrum core. Latest ROM. Latest firmware. Switch to Pentagon timings and -- it works!

My model is PVM-14L4, which one is Yours?

I tried now with ypbpr mode just for fun, but sync is still lost when I switch to Pentagon video timings.

Best regards,

FWIW, Pentagon timings work just fine on my PVM-1354Q, too.

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

POV 23 works perfectly.

I'm starting to hate sample demos.

Also, The Yello Demo claims (twice!) to be STE compatible. It's not. It immediately crashes and reboots on an STE.

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

Through POV 20 and POV 21. The Mega-Bob demo on POV-21 exhibits the same corruption as The ATG Demo and S.U.C.C.E.S.S when run in STE mode. As with S.U.C.C.E.S.S, the scroller is corrupted even in an emulator, but the rest of the demo is fine there. While I haven't tested on real hardware, if it mat...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

I booted up Systematic Error again and left the OSD on. First of all, I saw far fewer black frames this time. Maybe two in three minutes. Secondly, they were so fast, I couldn't tell if they impacted the OSD or not. I'm calling this screen "temperamental". On real hardware and on the MiSTery core. :...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

Good point I forgot to mention. I've used three monitor setups for my test: Hatari/Monitor (HDMI only), MiST/Monitor (VGA only) and STE/Flat TV w/ CVBS. I could retest Hatari, MiST and STE with the Flat TV as it also has VGA besides it's CVBS. Mist can work with 15kHz, too, as using VGA implies sca...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

I didn't test it. But If indeed it depends on no joystick signal being asserted, then it is definitely a bug. And as Alex said, Ppera can probably fix it. Even the ikbd controller is perfectly emulated in Steem, the result here depends on the virtual mouse plugged into the port. As Ijor wrote, It m...

Re: It's no more a MiSTery

But it's not fair to compare the original 15kHz and the scandoubled VGA output. Same display, same input port is the only fair comparison. I can't speak for how RealLarry is running the MiST, but I certainly saw more black frames on my 15khz display on the MiST than on his video of the real ST. Not...

Interesting! I wonder why the MiST behaviour is different -- more black frames.

Thanks for the original hardware test. :)
