Re: Upcoming core - Game of Life

Fun core .. would be neat to somehow incorporate color into it .. but otherwise really nice job. Maybe color them according to neighbour count. That's actually doable and a neat idea. I will have to test it :) Also, it would be cool to implement other cellular automaton rules as well, they can also...

Re: Special/Interesting controllers for MiSTer

Speaking of keyboard control, there is a function in MiSTer to map gamepad/joystick buttons to keyboard keys.

It works great with DOS games, the only downside is that the settings aren't saved so you have to re-enter everything for each gaming session.

Re: Upcoming core - Game of Life

Can we have an option to reset it periodically into a new starting pattern, so we can leave it running in the background as decoration? :)

They are stickers from the ZX-Uno project.

Re: MiSTerJamma Board

SNAC goes directly to the FPGA, but officially it's only provided to connect unusual hardware e.g. lightguns. There has been two unofficial solutions released since, with forked cores: https://github.com/antoniovillena/MiSTer_DB9 https://github.com/bootsector/LLAMA Both solutions basically use the "...

Re: MiSTerJamma Board

I don't see how this is useful; there are already solutions (non-official) for direct input bypassing USB.
The rest (RGB, sound) can be retrieved directly from standard setup. What does this offer on top of that?

Re: mini-keyboard with touchpad for MiSTer

There is really no one size fits all, it all depends on your preference. I have a Rapoo key+mouse combo, but I use one of those timy Rii keypads for basic controls. The mini keypad is enough for simple linux commands or to load games in computer cores. For proper typing I am a bit of a snob and I ca...

PiCade for MiSTer?

I know a few people have built a PiCade with MiSTer for brains. What's your impressions? Does it need anything special on top of what's shipped by Pimoroni? I also wonder if it would be possible to install a battery to it, so it's "transportable" (i.e. stay at home, but can bring it to the sofa or a...

Re: Special/Interesting controllers for MiSTer

I have two of these VSmile joysticks, but I'm hesitant to mod them.
It would be hilarious to use then with MiSTer for meetups, though.

Second video shows him using it with SF2:

Maybe it can be out into a "Misc" or "Other" category? The Chip8 core would fit there as well.

Re: Help with porting Arduboy core?

Would this core have code that can help with Gameduino?

I don't know how good are the games for it, though. Arduboy was a neat little physical device (I have one) so that makes it more fun to code for.

Re: Scripting news

Chip8 qualifies for "computer" in my book, it originated from DIY computer kits and there was never a fully consolized version with games using simple game controllers. Contrast that to e.g. the Oddissey2 which in some versions had a keyboard, but the original model didn't have it, and all models ha...

I thought it may be useful to add usage instructions for computer cores. Since it's core specific, I suppose the best location is not the wiki but perhaps the readme.md file?
