Re: Build Environment

It's always possible to use a VGA to HDMI adapter... not ideal but in the grand scheme of things, not having HDMI shouldn't be a bottleneck if you'd like to port or write a core ;)

Re: SMS core

It's still a good example of how to port a core, so it's no wasted effort. Plus the games that do work are fun!

Re: MSX core

I'm curious about whether the ZPUFlex was removed from this core, and replaced with the standard menu? I guess it's still there otherwise the porting work would be much harder?

Let's all give a big thanks to Sorgelig for porting the SMS core! It works really well!

Re: MSX core

For SCC there is a version of Knightmare that support it. It is in the "starter pack" that I made for the MiST long ago:

Re: Core porting questions

you can skip the VIP stuff by switching to the "LITE" version of the project, there should be a drop-down at the top. It kills the HDMI output but it also compiles quickly. So good for development anyway. On my side I managed to compile but no boot. I think I'll attempt a simpler core firs...

Re: RTC board

Maybe it was just a matter of space utilization on the board / cost reduction? The RPi doesn't have an RTC either.
The DE10 is small enough for mobile devices, maybe the accelerometer could be used as controller?

Re: Core porting questions

So I recreated the PLL and I wired the video output to emu. I get a VGA video signal now but... it is blank. At least it is roughly in range; it wasn't when I first used the original PLL. Do I need to do something to get the OSD to respond (i.e. wire it sonewhere) Or if it doesn't, do I have somethi...

Re: Core porting questions

Thanks, I can compile now but I get a blank screen in VGA. I guess I need to assign the VGA signals as well? eg. assign VGA_R = video_r; Also I guess I will need to change PLL settings for Clock50 instead of Clock27. I found a section with things like "27929 ps" which I think are timing re...

Does anybody know what this error means? Error (12006): Node instance "cpu" instantiates undefined entity "GBse" I think I've included all files (gameboy core, this one is from gb.v). The error is also confusing because I'd expect "GBse" is the name, and cpu the object/...

I spy a battery slot at the bottom. Is that for an RTC?

Also I wonder if you could make the board slightly longer so it can be screwed to the other side as well? Its purely esthetic so I suppose you have your reasons not to... (cheaper?)

Re: I/O Board thread

For the sake of backwards compatibility, how about reserving those pins now? That needs no work other thab a decision. ;) MIDI is a very cool use of FPGA (IMHO) especially since the ST was very famous with musicians. RS232 could also help communicate with older hardware (and is also present on MiST ...

OFFTOPIC: Last week I ordered a GBS 8200 upscaler from China (was temptated by the low price), as arrives will test it especially in aspect of non-standard (i.e. PAL) output cores and make some screenshots. It's a good option to stabilize the VGA signal on the cheap, bit not that good with 50hz (PA...

Any devs interested in revisiting the NES core? I did a lot of testing on the NES core (800+ games) and provided as much support + docs as I could when a core developer (sebdel) was willing to work on the HDL... but sadly he ran out of free time for it and we had to stop. The biggest problems right ...

Re: I/O Board thread

I was thinking that for a USB hub it might be better to have an external board that can be mounted on a case, plugging to the DE10 with a single OTG cable. In fact these kind of extensions would protect the longevity of connectors on the DE10 board, but at the cost of making the overall build more e...

If you make it a full size SD card, we can probably reuse the MiST cards? (ignoring any rbf in it, or maybe checking for "core_mister.rbf")

Re: Mist 1.3 question

I don't think so. The striping you refer to has to do with video timings and is specific per core. Some LCDs have settings to adjust it a bit, otherse one cheap-ish solution I found was to use an arcade video upscaler (even if leaving at 480p resolution) as it smooths the image. Here's a comparison:...
