Re: MiSTer: MiST on Terasic DE10-nano board.

darn... I missed the run of SDRAM boards. Is anybody planning another run or could make me one?

Great job! Fantastic that we have an original core on MiSTer now :)

Re: why has it stopped?

No I suspect its a legitimate concern of many current MiST owners who lack the time or technical skills to assemble their own MiSTers.. Such a device is out of reach for them .. Once the SDRAM board design is stable / tested by a few then it should be possible to have somebody make a larger batch a...

Re: why has it stopped?

but I'm optimistic especially now with the MiSTer opening new doors (much bigger FPGA). Yes .. but I have a fear that Mister (and ones like it) are going to fracture the MiST base.. more so if improvements and changes can not be back-ported. Some of that is inevitable given the MiST's Cyclone III i...

Re: why has it stopped?

I just think it's harder to make a good emulator using FPGA than traditional emulation methods.. so opensourcing them doesn't help because there's a tiny pool of people who know FPGA programming to a sufficient level to diagnose and fix issues... Actually this is a counter example; the current AGA ...

each core is its own project after all. But If I'm not mistaken the AGA core is already very compatible no?

Re: Can De1 core be ported to mist Coco 3

I suppose you could ask the author if he can make it work with SDRAM instead. Could it be ported to MiSTer using block RAM instead of SRAM? Doesn't help OP, but would be interesting to know it's possible. There are other cores relying on SRAM that are hard to port to MiST (e.g. PC/XT and arcade Bagm...

Re: MiST - FPGA ST

Just to add, perhaps what is confusing is that each core is really an independent project. And if it has only one author and he stops working on it, you need to wait until somebody else picks it up. I'm also wondering how incomplete the ST core really is? I mean sure some demos do not work but if mo...

Because using real carts in realtime has a different feeling to it. :)

I guess instead the Genesis could take real carts through a GPIO adapter, which would.probably be better (no dumping time).

Dynamic switch between SD and USB is not supported. What is Retrode and how device switch affects it? It's a USB cart dumper and controller adapter sold by Dragonbox.de . The dumper presents itself as USB storage with a ROM file and the save files (that it extracts from the inserted cart). It suppo...

By the way does the file select allow changing to another storage device? I'm tempted to try with a Retrode if so (real carts!)

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/spreads...

Re: MiST - FPGA ST

What we need is more developers and people willing to learn. Unfortunately to go from learning HDL to write a core is quite a leap (except maybe if you have EE experience to rely on). There are other ways to help, though. One bottleneck is undocumented features. When game X or demo Y doesn't work it...
