Re: BBC Micro

Just for info I did try it. First you are right the mmb file works if just renamed to vhd, and NO it won't write back to it if it's the primary SD card - it has to be the secondary. Same with the MiST, except the MiST doesn't give the option for a second sd slot.

Re: BBC Micro

Ok - after faffing around with it all day, I can confirm that you CAN write to a disk in this core. But it needs to be an MMB file located on a second sd card in the expansion board. The Beeb.mmb file contains 4 virtual disks - below is a short description of some commands to type for navigation: *....

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

I have to say through VGA and separate sound output this core is VERY good. It runs better than the version on the MiST, from a video output perspective. The only thing missing is support for hard disks which that one has. This core actually makes me like an ST, which I don't really have with my rea...

Re: BBC Micro

Is it possible to save anything in this core? Ideally it would be possible to save listings typed in basic back to some sort of storage. For me these cores are about more than just playing old games, but also learning about original programming

Re: TI-99/4A on Mister (based on Speccery's)

Ok so I replaced BOTH the rom files - including the 99aGrom.bin - that seemed to work. The file size is 252kb but it works fine. Now I'll get on and try and do a game rom.

I installed Windows 95 from the 22 virtual floppies a couple of days ago!! Graphics performance is pretty bad. A good curiosity at this stage but not much more. Wolfenstein 3D seems to work pretty well though.

USB mouse issue

Hi,

Anyone else have issue with optical USB mouse for MiSTer? The issue I have is it is skipping all over the place. This have been working fine with my MiST setup - is it possible I need to update some kind of file.

Re: FPGA learning

Thanks - yes I had thought the ZX81 was probably the best choice. It is a little eccentric when it comes to display though....but still overall probably the best bet.

FPGA learning

Which is the simplest core that exists on the MiST that would be ideal for learning the code? I would be interested in cassette loading feature also.
thanks.

Does anyone have the full mapping of the C64? I'll check the core files. But the + key that was mapped is not really the + key, but a graphics key.

Ok - so if I mount the image in windows I can mess with it without corrupting the SD card. Still don't get good compatibility though.

I have a question. If I burn the image to an SD card and put it directly to the MiST we have action! But as already mentioned the compatibility of many games is VERY bad. Now if I put it in my PCs card slot, I don't need to modify anything, the card will no longer work in the MiST, and by that I mea...

Acorn Electron core

So the awesome Gehstock has ported an Acorn Electron to the MiST. However, no tape support at present. So question - (since am the proud owner of a MiST but the future owner of a MiSTer) which would be more likely to get an added upgrade to include cas support? While the Electron is basic, its simpl...
