Re: How actively are you using your MiST?

Right. How hard would it be to modify an existing Mistica to add JTAG and satisfy developer needs?

Re: How actively are you using your MiST?

I don't quite get the anti-mistica sentiment.
I think it makes sense to have two types of systems, one for developers and one "simpler" (cheaper) for "consumers". Mistica probably mostly fall in the latter category, while original MiST in the former.

And I have two V2 cards. They always offer what is described...ish. But what's described may of course change at Gunnar's whim.

Nobody ever had anything against the Vampire cards, rather the contrary - absolutely _ALL_ critics have been towards the CPU core and Gunnar himself.

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

The voltage problem is AFAIK already taken care of in various 060-adapters that can be dropped into 040 sockets. Ditto for the pin issue, it's a solved problem. i know about power adapters for 060, but never checked the circuit in details. It looks like these adaptors just convert the power supply ...

The main problem for any 040 system is heat - the 040 can fry eggs even at 40MHz, replacing the CPU with an FPGA would also solve this.

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

Yes, indeed. I know that the 68k Linux and *BSD communities are interested in such a CPU core, and other 68k retro platforms have shown interest in FPGA based drop-in replacements for old CPUs. An FPGA board that could be dropped into an existing 040 socket, and offer a decent boost to any 040 syste...

Re: New Amiga core beta :D

Or use a mode with same ratio as your monitor. Remember that original Amiga icons were not displayed 1:1, but rather for PAL 5:2 (hires 620x256) or 5:4 (hires laced 640:512) stretched to a fit a 4:3 TV, NTSC is a tad better with actual 4:3 (or 8:3) ratio :) The OS3.5+ icons were made for RTG and 1:1...

Re: Internet and Linux Shell for Amiga and ao486

For me, Roadshow worked right away, with the installation I already had from the MiST where the disk image came from. I only changed baud rate for the "dial script" from 57600 (on the MiST) to 115200 on the MiSTer, and enabled RTS/CTS.

Re: Internet and Linux Shell for Amiga and ao486

Probably beyond that would be the NE2000 network board which is very well supported both Amiga and DOS platforms. I doubt its relatively easy though... The most obvious would perhaps be to mimic the PCMCIA slot of the A600 and A1200, with an NE2000 card yes. I'm not sure where on the chipset the PC...

Better keep the UART for serial console, and rather implement something ethernet alike between the Amiga and the Linux side.
