MSX core

I'm in process of porting MSX core.

Since i'm not familiar with MSX and its software i need some help.

1) I need game which uses PCM sound
2) I need game/app which uses interlaced video mode

Re: amiga joysticks

this one https://retro.7-bit.pl/?lang=en&go=proj ... e=rys_mkii is supposed to be a 2-way converter (depends on firmware). I've used it to plug USB joysticks to Amiga's DB9. But i didn't try opposite functionality.

Re: amiga joysticks

if this one: http://plugable.com/products/pl2303-db9/
then it has no relation to Amiga joysticks. It's USB-RS232 converter.
Not every DB9 is about Amiga joystick.

Re: I/O Board thread

I've made pic from datasheet:
switch.png

so, any switch with the same footprint can be used.

Actually, requirements can be relaxed. Only spacing in row, between rows and right angle required. Even case legs aren't important due to 6 pins. Just make sure it physically fits.

Re: RTC board

Since DE10-nano is so small, it can be used in drones and robots. Accelerometer makes more sence then :)

especially if you check the power consumption and heat dissipation ;)

Re: RTC board

yeah, it wasn't a secret. It's strange that DE10-nano includes useless I2C accelerometer chip which is like 5th leg for dog. How they supposed to use accelerometer on board full of connected wires - it's pretty stationary device. They should include RTC instead which is pretty natural chip for such ...

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

With new MiSTer/Menu update, Menu displays the current time if it's trustful. So, if you don't use RTC board but have internet connection on MiSTer and want ao486 and Minimig to display correct time, wait for time to appear in the Menu core header and only then start ao486/Minimig - in this case you...

Re: I/O Board thread

Probably, the whole arduino header can be an optional and save some cost for end-user. Can be soldered by special request. But it's up to you. Just don't replace it by male connectors! It's good to have 3-pin power female connector soldered for expansions, while two long arduino headers can be left ...

Re: I/O Board thread

Unfortunately, I couldn't find any 3 or 5 pin female Arduino header. I will give it another look. 3pin connector is not arduino, but normal female connector with standard pin length. You just need to solder it higher than original. It's still possible to solder. 5pin connector - you won't find it p...

Re: I/O Board thread

For the Arduino header, I will use regular male header: https://www.digikey.com/products/en?keywords=S1131EC-40-ND you can see on my picture above, it should be female connector, not male! You cannot simply swap the female to male as it won't be compatible with future expansions. It's better not so...

Re: Core porting questions

It's hard to tell where is problem. To get OSD working, core has to supply the video clock, system clock (through hps_io), VGA_DE and CE_PIXEL in addition to standard color and sync signals used in MiST. It's because top module has to process the video further and add OSD overlay. I've wrote about i...

if you still have 8GB SD card coming with DE10-nano, then try to boot from it. It has Ubuntu with HDMI output.

Re: Core porting questions

In PLL wizard it's enough just change the input frequency - everything else should be adjusted automatically. If original FPGA is not an Cyclone V, then you will need to create PLL from ground using the same output frequencies in settings.

Re: Core porting questions

Remove OSD from the core. It's handled and overlayed in top-level module (in /sys) MiSTer requires 16-bit data for AUDIO_L/R signals unlike MiST where 1-bit used. So, remove the sigma_delta_dac and use this: assign AUDIO_L = audio_left[15:0]; assign AUDIO_R = audio_right[15:0]; assign AUDIO_S = 0 or...

Re: I/O Board thread

Arduino headers are optional. It's not required to be soldered (but it's good to solder if you intend to plug/unplug expansions often) since it's simple pass-through connector. It should NOT be fully seated. Check the picture: iobrd_arduino.png The header height will be at the same level as fan - 10...

Re: Core porting questions

It looks like GBse module is missing or not declared. If cpu module is VHDL and GBse is Verilog, then cpu should include GBse component declaration.
You can check C64 core which is written in VHDL and includes some Verilog modules.
