Re: VGA => composite to a CRT TV without scaling?

Would it be possible for the MiSTer to output composite vídeo from a VGA to YPbPr cable? I know this is the worst video quality, but some cores like NES I am used tocomposite video and some games used composite video tricks to show more colors or transparencies . For example Apple II core would bene...

Re: NES core on MiST

Thanks Higgy, it must be my TV being faulty, looking closer to the screen other cores have a very faint shaking/interference (nowhere as bad as NES) that is not noticeable from normal viewing distances. Maybe some capacitors are bad or the scart connector needs resoldering. I will keep that TV until...

Re: New SID 8580 implementation for the C64 core

I post here a bug I found in slingshot's C64 core that I am unable to replicate on other cores. When I load a PRG file from OSD sometimes when I execute the program with RUN command it doesn't do nothing and then if I reload the PRG it works flawlessly. Other cores don't exhibit that behaviour. Not ...

Re: NES core on MiST

Hi, I was given a Sony KV-14T1E CRT TV and I am trying it with MiST, quite happy vs my old nobrand CRT but I see that NES core shows big shaking/vibration (seems vertical shaking) nomatter if playing 50hz or 60hz games. This is the only core that has that problem, old TV shows it OK. Any clues what ...

Re: Genesis / Megadrive core ported to MiST

Tested again and I don't have music (FM Sound?) on Titan Overdrive 2 demo. Sound effect work (PSG Sound?) and very shortly no audio at all. I am running the core on 15khz if that matters.

Video centering / adjusting

I see that mist core (atari st) has an option to center the display horizontally and vertically. This is useful when you are using a CRT TV or monitor that can't position the screen where you want. I think it will be interesting to integrate this option on some cores, as each core has a different sc...

Sony PVM and MiST

Hi, I am about to buy a Sony PVM 1442QM monitor for using with the MiST / MiSTer, I actually have MiST connected to a CRT TV with a VGA to Scart cable with a USB for powering and it works very well. For the PVM I was thinking on buying an VGA to BNC cable, but the seller of the PVM adverts me that t...

Re: [Solved] MiST Hardware Revisions? MSX-Core-Problem

Testing new core and two button mode works now. Don't notice here darker screen, using 15khz.

At first boot MSX shows only 2048kb of ram thus not loading autoexec.bat. It needs a first reset to show 4096kb and run autoexec.bas

Re: [Solved] MiST Hardware Revisions? MSX-Core-Problem

Thanks for the VHD file, it works very well and I can mount it in WinImage (don't know what I did wrong with my image).
I can confirm that to get all directions on the joystick controller I have to use the swap joysticks option. I also confirm the second joystick button doesn't work.

Thanks for the updated core, never thought MiST could be abble to reproduce Megadrive to this level, most games run OK. Could it be possible to implement scanlines?
