Re: Atari ST core

Has anybody used the Viking graphics mode, yet? Isn't it supposed to switch to high monochrome resolution of 1280 x 960? When I select it in the OSD I can see no change on screen (640 x 400). Generally, I am thrilled by the release of the Atari ST core.

Re: C64 Core

Probably your experiments lead to mess in file system. Remove the USB stick and make sure there are no folders in /media/usb0 Or simply replace linux.img with the one from installer. Yeah, I probably messed it up. Now with the linux.img re-installed everything is back to normal. Thanks a ton, Sorge...

Re: C64 Core

You have to reload the core after plug/unplug USB stick. I am sorry, I tried all kinds of different orders with plugging in and out of the USB stick and reloading the C64 core before, in the middle, and after - and all this in reverse. As a result the path appears to be set to /media/usb0/ now with...

Re: C64 Core

Lately, I updated several cores including MiSTer main from my USB stick. After that I noticed some strange behaviour of the C64 core. The default path for the boot.rom and all files somehow was changed to the USB instead of the SD card. I have never touched the option in the menu to switch to USB. ...

Re: NeoGeo topic

Yes, I am using a small PCB containing the necessary resistors and capacitors according to the IO board schematics:

This works fine for all cores I tested so-far except for the NeoGeo. Does it handle audio differently?

Re: NeoGeo topic

I am having trouble with the NeoGeo sound which I grab as analog audio from GPIO 1 and feed into the audio jack of my monitor. It is hardly hearable and seems distorted. No problems here with the other cores, though. Apart from this, fantastic work!

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

Yeah, the ST core announcement about a year ago made me get a MiSTer. Still, I cannot run the core as I am using a DVI LCD. The MiSTer let's me peek into the consoles and arcades of the 80s and 90s, though, which is quite fun! I am also happy with the VIC-20 and C64 cores. The ST core, however, woul...

Re: DVI mode problems with main MiSTer 20190922 release?

Got it!

"root" actually means /media/fat where MiSTer itself is located. Everything is fine now - and LDXE also starts up :D :D :D

Thanks for the good work :cheers:

Re: DVI mode problems with main MiSTer 20190922 release?

\root means root folder on your SD card?
Yes, I put a copy of MiSTer.ini in the root folder. Having two .ini files, one in root and one in config would not hurt, would it? They are identical anyway.

DVI mode problems with main MiSTer 20190922 release?

For some reason I cannot get the latest 20190922 release of main MiSTer to work with my DVI monitor (1280x1024@60). :?

The older versions work fine with DVI_mode=1 and video_mode=4. I have placed a copy of MiSTer.ini into \root.

Any suggestions are welcome!

Re: MISTer (Main Core)

No luck with 1280x1024@60 DVI either! First I thought it would be the location of MiSTer.ini but putting it to \root did not help. :shrug:

LXDE desktop won't start after linux update

I just updated linux to the latest version and now LXDE does not start up anymore. All other cores are working just fine.

I'd really love to be able to use LXDE as I do all file transfers for MiSTer via the LXDE desktop. Any ideas?

Re: MISTer (Main Core)

I am sorry to post this noob question. I would like to do the MiSter Linux update by replacing "linux.img" and "zImage_dtb" by hand on the SD card using a PC because my MiSter is not connected to the internet. I located "zImage_dtb" but were do I get "linux.img"?

Great news Ijor - and many thanks for your efforts! The ST has definitely been missing on the MISTer system. However, with my setup I cannot test the core because I do not get a video signal.
