Re: MiSTer frontend future

Laziness is not always locomotive of progress. Sometimes it's pure laziness. You press thousand times while playing the game, don't be lazy to choose the ROM. Especially with recents you can choose it from the short list. I agree that this isn't really needed. My desire isn't to avoid picking the R...

Re: MiSTer frontend future

I prefer the simplified UI. I hope that if a more complex UI is added that we will keep an option to use the simplified UI. That being said. I do thing that some quality of life changes would be nice. Filenames being truncated have been a challenge for me. When the file is in focus its nice that it ...

Re: Is my DE10-Nano Broken?

I'm sorry If I'm asking something very obvious: do you have an active cooling installed on your mister? You mentioned removing add-on boards - that may mean you no longer have your fan blowing on the FPGA chip. Active cooling ( the lack of) is one of the main reasons of the random instabilities. Ye...

Re: Is my DE10-Nano Broken?

My MiSTer randomly stopped booting. I have removed all the add-on boards. I have tried a few different SD cards and a different PSU. The stock SD image works just fine. I have attached the logs from both. The MiSTer log ends with: [ 21.411307] rcu: INFO: rcu_sched self-detected stall on CPU [ 21.416...

Re: MiSTer Installation Problem

I don't use Windows that often so this is just a guess but you may have some application that is reading or writing to the SD card. Like a virus scan or some kind of search indexing. I would use a Disk Management to remove all partitions from the SD card then try the MiSTer Installer again. How are ...

Re: NES cartridge support

I'm not really into MIDI sound so I maybe way off here. But, if the goal is to get access to all these classic consoles/computers audio chips, wouldn't the ultimate solution be creating a core that had them all in it?

Re: New Linux SD Card Script

Hubertbanas, thanks for the feedback. I have a pull request that discovers the partition names rather then assume them. I wasn't able to reproduce the race condition you saw. May no longer be an issue with the name discovery. Can you please retest with this change and let me know if you still need t...

Re: New Linux SD Card Script

Awesome job :cheers:

I added some error handling and created a pull request, let me know what you think.

I think that this would be amazing to add to the SD-Installer-Win64_MiSTer repo as its only input is the release rar.

Re: Direct Bluetooth gamepad support

Are you using a powered USB hub? I had spotty connection issue with my 8Bitdo receiver. Once I upgraded to a powered hub, no more dropped connection, no more pairing issues.

Re: Checksums for Arcade Rom's (MD5)

I was able to verify all the checksums except Catacomb.

Can anyone verify the Catacomb hash? I have `dfda39951da1cf12279a6dcf030ee09d`. If anyone has the hash `bf9ff64c330d2a88d6d0d47668b05ffe` from the build_rom.ini what version of MAME is it from? I'm trying .158.

Re: Arcade ROM Builder & Injector GUI

Hey nice, looks cool! I was going to do something like that using the ini files but I decided against it for a few reasons. The main one is for more flexibility with hacks and alternate versions. I'm also trying to tie it down to one romset for simplicity, which means making adjustments here and th...

Re: Arcade ROM Builder & Injector GUI

Hopefully I'll have a test release by tomorrow. Will you be making it cross platform Windows/MacOS/Linux? I build a simple script with a GUI that I used to convert all the ROM files. It is is written in Python and should work on Linux, Windows and MacOS. I personally run Linux and MacOS so cross pl...
