Re: Doom/Doom II (PrBoom-Plus) on Framebuffer/ARM

There are some fledgling FPGA open source GPU projects out there, but they are far from being usable. A quick google shows that not only it's early stages, but would be PS1-level capabilities at best.

Just buy a GPD Win :)

Re: DE10-Lite instead of Nano for Arcade only?

As far as I can tell you won't have the ability to use any of the ARM framework part of MiSTer. That means you can't switch cores, can't use USB controllers, and miss some utilities to load ROMs that are core-specific. None of those are really critical for Arcade cores as far as I know. I think this...

Re: Joystick testing thread

I always wondered what was the real difference for those modes.
I suppose they pretend to be a specific device (e.g. specific VID/PID) that each OS recognizes easily?

Re: ScummVM running on FrameBuffer

From an end user point of view, yes, let's have everything inside a zip / tar file / repo instead of having lots of external dependencies. I think apt and the like is only good when all packages are actively maintained, but not for a "soft core" which may not be revisited for a while once ...

So "SuperStar" are only SNES and NES? Not Genesis, TurboGrafX16, etc.. Actually all console cores are complete with all features. Computer cores are also almost all complete. The only category of cores requiring some work to make them work are Arcades. I didn't finish editing the page :oo...

Re: Would be possible Mame on Arm Soc like ScummVM?

Maybe the wiki could have an "Experimental" section. Force people to do a more annoying install than usual (e.g. don't provide a binary but make it having to compile one's own, like many Linux apps do). That would deter the "I don't want to tinker" people.

Re: Would be possible Mame on Arm Soc like ScummVM?

It's clear to me it needs a competent and really dedicated developer, though. We can theorize all day, but if we get a driven person genuinely curious to make the most of the DE10 and MAME, I have no doubts it will be great. But if it's just a dude like me who can, maybe, barely, get it to compile, ...

Re: Would be possible Mame on Arm Soc like ScummVM?

To be done right, it would have to be more than just a port; an attempt to get the best performance out of it by doing a hybrid approach. It's certainly interesting, but it would need a very motivated developer(s) that know both MAME and Verilog very well. I don't think a direct port would be agains...

Re: Wifi

I think it was the powered hub (or lack thereof). It has been stable after I gave it juice.
I'm not sure why it worked before, but I suppose it was a fluke.

In any case it isn't driver related, happy I got two of these WiFi dongles from AliExpress.
