Re: New MiST clone: MiSS FPGA

Nice! I'm also trying something like this. I need a mini itx case first but then I thought I would downscale it for the MiST. https://i.ibb.co/1RCvLK0/atari-case.png I'm so close but I'm kind of stuck atm. It turns out designing something that's 3d printable and easy to assemble is not that easy. I'...

MiST forum here.
It's actually Atari-Forum ;-)
So you agree that the re implementation of the greatest Atari hardware of all time is of the utmost importance :)
I'm afraid it won't fit in a MiST though. That would be the core that makes me buy a MiSTer.

Re: Do you still use a MiST exclusively?

Yes, a dedicated PCB with everything on board would go a long way. Also, something that is very important to me that I just realised the Mister has not: passive cooling is a must.

Re: Do you still use a MiST exclusively?

I don't like the idea to use a really powerful dev board to workaround having to properly engineer an efficient solution. I'd be there day 1 for a Mist2 though. I also have no interest in the cores that runs on Mister and not Mist. I'm here for the Atari ST core. All that being said, if someone come...

Re: HELP WANTED: MRA file converter for MiST

I wanted to say, I answered the call for help from Jotego without knowing what he was going to do with it, and now we get this on the MiST:

I also got a very nice gesture by regular mail.

So... Thank you Jotego ! :cheers:

Re: HELP WANTED: MRA file converter for MiST

@sebdel - I had a very minor build issue for mra-tools - could you add "--std=c99" to the makefile's CFLAGS, since you're using C99/C++ style "for(int j=....)" constructs in a couple of places...? Other than that, it seems like a great tool! oops, I slipped into 99 accidentally. I'd rather stay ret...

Re: HELP WANTED: MRA file converter for MiST

Of course, agree on all this. What I meant was: you're the only one that develop cores (and mra) for both Mist and Mister. So the question for you was: is it a problem that interleaving is not achieve the same way on mist and mister (group vs. interleave)? It is, yes. Because I'd like to distribute...

Re: HELP WANTED: MRA file converter for MiST

I see, you don't really need interleave. I'll see with Jotego then. Still, I'd like to try to generate a valid rom with interleaved video, just for testing purpose. Hi Sebdel, I'm not sure of what you need from me. Interleave or group XML elements are vital for me. For other arcade cores I have bee...

Re: HELP WANTED: MRA file converter for MiST

Why are we doing this then? Is it so you can run more games on the same hardware by externalising the byte-shuffling and other config stuff? When I wrote this code, the MRA tool didn't exist even in imagination, so I had to solve it somehow. But in the future it can be useful (Jotego requested it a...

Re: HELP WANTED: MRA file converter for MiST

<interleave> node on MiSTer does several tasks. It's not only for interleaving several parts, but also can be used to swap the bytes in a single part. map="21" will swap the bytes of the part. The <group> node does that too. It looks like we implemented the same functionality roughly at the same ti...

fat32 isn't case sensitive and the tests i already did with rom files (before arc) told me the same (AAA.ROM or aaa.rom are the same for core) Thanks, lower case it is then. No, upper case.

Re: HELP WANTED: MRA file converter for MiST

Then <setname> would be good for both NAME= and the ROM's filename, too. Then MRAs can have long filename. And if there's no <setname> it can fall back to the MRA filename (for both NAME and ROM's filename). Quick question: does it matter if the NAME written in the ARC file is in lower case? I'd ra...

I think I can ommit the md5 sum if all files are referenced to by CRC. I don't know about that merge|unmerged thing. I think it is safe to ignore it. How about the interleave element?
