Re: MIST 1.3 plus

What is new in it? As far as I can tell it has the MIDI connectors built-in, but that means we lose the four expansion port pins for other uses?

Re: Perfecting existing cores

Sounds good. I also have a Zx-Uno but I must admit I've been using it less than the MiST. As far as I can tell both cores are written differently (due to Altera vs. Xilinx IP/macros) but perhaps a common standard can be made.

Perfecting existing cores

(splitting from the Jupiter ACE thread) Certainly, taking into account coders' motivation is important but I think the motivation is not only fun, there is also a social aspect. When we, coders, see people enjoying our work and giving us appreciation back, it feels great. So recognition is a factor ...

Re: New feature: YPbPr/RGsB output

The MiST SCART cable should do the trick? It's not too expensive. Or you don't have SCART perhaps?

Re: Jupiter Ace arrives at MiST

I don't think it's that simple; it probably needs somebody to check the timings on the original hardware. That said, if developrs can outline some busywork to "farm out" I'm sure there will be some volunteers.

Re: Jupiter Ace arrives at MiST

Well some of us could contact him and safeguard the source just in case. Also the arcade cores can probably use some rework to exrernalize the ROMs to avoid any copyright issues.

I think the problem is the MiST SDRAM is not fast enough to multiplex ROM data.

Re: Joystick mapping rbf?

The joystick test is part of the firmware. Should be accessible from most of the cores that use the standard menu (some cores have their own OSD).

Mine still works but the spring broke meaning the cards won't eject any more. Luckily they stick out enough that I can remove it without much problem.

Re: Genesis / Megadrive core ported to MiST

One strange thing I noticed is that the music in Dragon's Fury is slowed down... even though the whole game seems to be at full speed. Not a big deal, but thought I'd mentioned in case you're looking for bug reports / noticeable differences with the original.

He could still publish his code minus the copyrighted part.

I guess this shows the need to have a core load data externally to avoid such problems. But obviously that's harder to write since you need to grab the files from the SD card and store them in memory.

For "hex state" see the wiki page on joystick usb mapping. Long story short you can map combination of buttons to individual keys.

Re: How to map keyboard keys to joypad buttons?

Just to clarify, are you trying to make your gamepad act as keyboard right? Not the opposite (use keyboard without gamepad). The relevant code is in /usb/joy_mapping.c in the firmware. There is a function to map via .ini but its not documented. I don't remember if it's because it doesn't work well o...

Re: New MIST core: PC Engine!

That's so weird... but I did notice the core has some strange color problems even with an HDMI upscaler. For example in R-Type, at some points the background becomes darker (when it doesn't do it on the original). Maybe for some obscure reason it happens all the time on your board... but can't reall...

Re: crt options in cores

so you mean the .crt file format? (whatever that is)
It might be simpler to convert them into one of the supported formats, such as extracting the PRG files for example.
