Re: MiST - FPGA ST

For those that want to help but have no knowledge of HDL, I can suggest testing and documenting the results. I've tried every single ROM for NES that I have so I can now tell to any interested developer which games to look at, or which features would need to be added: https://docs.google.com/spread...

Re: MiST - FPGA ST

Buying a MiST board you pays only for HW manufacturer. It's not a secret that HW manufacturer donates some boards for active developers and it's good help for those who spend a lot of time for open source projects. But saying that some part of MiST price goes to core developers is not correct. Most...

Re: MiST - FPGA ST

That is not was i mean, we dont need your Money but a little of your time I didn't want to be rude... If it is my time that the developers need, say it...

If Everyone who complains about the Quality of the Cores himself some time in the Mist Community we are already much further.

Re: MiST - FPGA ST

sorry to ask but the atari st core development stopped? That sucks, looks like the fpga thing is a group of unfinished emulation projects... not even the 20 Years Atari STE Megademo works...

Re: CosmosEx - new device for your Atari ST

Because there wasn't any time to add HD support? There are many open issues, there are many open (not finished) features and improvements, and as most of the floppy images on ST are DD, and since it was mostly an ST device until few months ago, there wasn't any need to add HD support. If only the D...
