Re: ST/MiSTery - Creating blank disc images

Well, this sounds a good idea, however as you pointed out, one problem is to get a filename. Another one is to get a file size, as ST disks can have different geometries.

Re: SNES core not starting

Why it didn't work with default image? No idea, maybe my monitor didn't accept the refresh ratio or something like that. But I'm happy playing SNES on my MiST. Cheers! My (newer) monitor also doesn't work with NTSC mode in SNES. That's the only one far from the 200+ cores. So things like this happe...

Re: Feature request in firmware: Simulate OSD long press

I don't think the check_reset() function is a good place for this. Also would be nice to have a switch to enable/disable it in mist.ini.

AFAIK the key is to use a special IO buffer type (to catch the data on both clock edges). Reading 8 words/clock is very attracting to me.

Re: New feature: YPbPr/RGsB output

You could use an OSSC to adapt to „Standard resolution“. I‘m doing this wirh scandoubled YPbPr-Output from MiniMigAGA-Core. The OSSC then doubles to 1280x960 with black borders to a standard 1920x1080 That's a bit more than a doubler, it's a scaler. BTW, a very simple approach to a true digital HDM...

Re: [Atari 800 core] Mark Watson's new site

Nice work... How do I make it load the rom? I tried the original sdflash.bin and atari800/rom/atarixl.rom Then I tried to use the A800XL.ROM in the root instead. What is the memory layout needed for these 32KB files? Just had a thought - do I need a new mist side firmware too? I only upgraded the c...

Thanks for your explanation. I'm really new to this retro console/computer field. So another question is the SRAM chip actually needed or not? :lol:

Re: New MiST clone: MiSS FPGA

Two independent SDRAMs mean more IOs needed. Could you please let me know the use case that two separate SDRAMs performs? There are many. Think about Amiga with separate Chip and Fast RAMs. Even NeoGeo needs a lot of bandwith, look at the MiSTer core, it uses the SDRAM, the DDR3, and a huge amount ...

Re: [Atari 800 core] Mark Watson's new site

But then the switch in OSD (System/Machine) became useless, as one ROM set includes only the Basic ROM for XL/XE and one OS (XL/XE for now) :) I think it's not quite useless, because not just the ROM contents are differ, but some address decoding, too. However you can poke Mark to allow both ROMs p...

Re: [Atari 800 core] Mark Watson's new site

Here's a new one: https://github.com/gyurco/Atari800XL/releases/tag/Test2 The ROM format is a bit special, because it's following how the core accesses it in the SDRAM: 16k of BASIC ROM (thus add the 8k ROM twice) 16k of OS ROM, so the 400/800 OSA and OSB should be prepended with 6144bytes of dummy ...
