No, they increased the fee of that second option.

Re: Snes on FPGA may get sof file release for de 10 nano mister

Nobody is forcing authors to open source cores, as long as it is entirely their own work.

Looking forward to it!

I found the same. Turns out they massively jacked fees for "friends and family" transfers:

Re: Analogue Super NT

am i correct it plays games only from cartridges? No, it has an unofficial "jailbreak" firmware that allows loading ROMs. It doesn't have many mappers supported in that mode, but that's less of an issue for SNES (unlike the NES that needs lots of different memory mappers). Most games work...

Re: Core porting questions

Would it be difficult to make it write on reset or when choosing another file? Many games actually advise to reset before shutting off, so would help remind about it.

Re: Core porting questions

Ah, I missed there was a Mister file that was one day older (24th). I see the menu now. I'd suggest renaming the save/load options to e.g. "Restore saves / Backup saves", otherwise it will be confused with emulators "save states" which backup the entire RAM and CPU state. In any ...

Re: Core porting questions

How does the save work exactly?

I copied blank.sav into "ZELDA.sav" (for ZELDA.nes), but after I rebooted the save were gone.
I didn't see a menu option to save SRAM; is it done automatically?

Re: Would MiSTer ever be able to run a Neo Geo core?

I think its unknown at best and no at worst.

There is no full FPGA neo geo core anywhere yet, and it has been commented that the console needs a lot of fast RAM access which would be better served by having four memory banks.

Re: Core availability on the MiSTer

I suppose this is a murky topic, but what if a clone publishes the schematic? Would that violate some kind of license or copyright? If not it seems to me it's the only thing needed to make the MiST open source.

I believe he said he would open source it, yes. Happy to be corrected if wrong. I agree with you that open source guarantees longevity in the long run, but there aren't many initiatives to make actual cartridge based systems from open source designs (and not really a point either if one can dump the...

Re: NeoGeo FPGA recreation crowdfunding !

Great news, and it's also interesting to see what individual chips were used for. This will help not only FPGA recreation but also MAME and any historical preservation efforts. This project aside, I wouldn't be surprised if an FPGA Neo Geo pops up in the next 3 years. Analogue might do one since tha...

I'd imagine the core could load overlays like MAME? It might require work on the video side though (to add a framebuffer and so on)
