Re: Core contributions to MiSTer

What I could offer as suggestion / idea is to improve some console cores such as the PC Engine. It's already working well, but the missing games are worth the effort. CD support is probably too much work, but that also has many good games such as Neo Geo ports.

Re: Amiga/PCE etc cores and OSSC.

There is a newer version of those GBS boards that output HDMI. I have not yet tried them myself, though.

Re: Using a VGA capture device with MiST?

I use the XCapture 1 for all my captures. Pricey but well worth it and reliable! How it works with non scan doubled output, and with timing that is not VGA standard as many classic platforms use? It takes 240p fine. Here's a larger overview: https://thethrillness.blogspot.com/2015/08/micomsoft-xcap...

Re: Real floppy drives with MiSTer?

I love retro systems, but honestly magnetic storage is just obsolete. All my real systems use SD cards or CF cards now. There is just no comparison to putting the card in a PC and copying over anything we want. I still have some FDD, tape drives, cassettes, and disk boxes out for display, but is onl...

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

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.

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.
