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

Well, DDR3 should be more suitable then. Still many games require more than 32MB according to your histogram. Graphics and audio use sequential access and pretty easy mapped to burst access to hide the latency. I don't know architecture of NeoGeo carts, but since they have separate buses for each de...

Re: MiSTer Case at shapeways (nylon plastic)

Connection points make sense for shapeways orders where every small detail costs a lot. And if you order panel without holes, then later you will need to order again - will pay a lot for panel + shipment. With connection points you will order one panel and then later will decide depending on future ...

Re: MiSTer Case at shapeways (nylon plastic)

How about other way for closed holes: Make a several connection points around the hole? About case: I guess it's not XS version, right? Also i see the second bottom inside the case - not sure how it can fit the USB board. I have the MiSTer with USB hub board next to me - its height may be twice low ...

Re: MiSTer Case at shapeways (nylon plastic)

@NegSol what do you think about making I/O board holes covered by thin plastic originally? So, user will decide what hole to open depending on addon board. For example, user may have no I/O board originally, but still can use XS case without holes. Later he can get I/O board and will open the holes....

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

Ok, after checking the Wiki, NeoGeo is pretty much similar to Sega Genesis by architecture. Total 224KB RAM can directly fit into BRAM, so no complex shared access is required. I don't know how big are NeoGeo cartridges. Wiki tells about up to 800Mbit (100MB), but i think 99% of games use not more t...

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

so, if it works on DE1, then it will fit in DE10-nano as well. Though need to check about the RAM. Basically DDR3 is pretty fast if used in burst mode, so it depends on core design. MiSTer has 3 types of RAM: BRAM, SDR SDRAM, DDR3 - so even if one type is not enough, then combining these 3 i believe...

Re: Joystick testing thread

New MiSTer update automatically detects the analog range, so it should be compatible with more joysticks without special tweaks.
Probably Daptor 2600 will work as well.

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

I found the potential issue with disk initialization when you change CHS values manually. Also, if you press "Read Configuration" button in disk initialization dialog of HDToolBox, it may redefine CHS values to its liking. Hence new MiSTer update. Now CHS values will be automatically updat...

As i've answered in FB, this info is not really correct. Probably it's more related to SD card controller than IDE. with CHS, the max heads is 16, max sectors per track is 255, max cylinders is 65536 Max addressed size with CHS: 16*255*65536*512=136902082560 bytes ~130GB As a golden rule - always le...

Re: Joystick testing thread

I think it's possible to get the joystick info to get its max/min values from driver.
This will reduce amount of tweaks for different controllers. I will check this later.

Re: Atari 800/5200 VHD question

VHD takes precedence. So if you will have boot.vhd, the core won't use secondary SD card. As always, VHD can be unmounted by BACKSPACE key while selecting, so core will start to use the secondary SD card. Or you may have VHD with other name, so it won't autoload at start in case if you prefer to use...
