Re: NEW OR UPDATED ARCADE CORES

is WIP actual we have no Sound, lack of BRAM, will upload Code hopefully will someone find some Bytes . is the same LE Leak like the Time Pilot Core. Without RGB and OSD can try to add sound. Ah ok .. I thought it was another completed one.. no worries.. Thanks for posting what you do have ..!! loo...

Re: How actively are you using your MiST?

right now AFAIK no one is doing that. Not correct. Some people are selling the boards: http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=117&t=32121 Oh thats good news.. The only concern I see with using a dev board like the DE10-nano is often companies will update or revise their dev boards from time...

Re: Loading a program.

A noob question alert, but having checked this forum I'm still not sure how to install a new program on my mist.. or load it from "floppy".. :coffe: Which core? perhaps if you provide more detail as to what you are trying to accomplish it might help .. i.e. what core are you using, etc..

Re: How actively are you using your MiST?

You only really need an SDRAM board. A fully assembled machine would probably be too pricey given it's mostly custom parts right now. As I said.. you need someone to either supply you the daughterboard or you need to roll your own.. therein lies the problem.. the ram board is a custom part .. you e...

Re: MiST VGA upscaling experiments

Hi! CONCLUSIONS: 1.) The efficiency of this scaler depends wholesale on the given core: If it's a PAL-only core without YPbPr output option, there's only a little chance that it will work. 2.) Compared to the low price, it can be a cost-effective solution. 3.) This device would be much more useful ...

Re: Moving MIST (etc) sub-forum into it's own main forum area

thanks for that! It's better now. I think it's better not to make too many sub-forums: it tends to confuse people to find the right section. Just a single one for MiST (and MiSTer), newbie questions and all the core into the same part is fine for me. MiST and MiSTer are not really binary compatible...

Re: MiST 1.3+ and NullModem (Amiga Multiplayer)

I think you would need to use a MAX232 because the voltages coming out of the Mist would be TTL level and wouldnt work well (possibly fry) when connected to standard serial connector.. I am not sure what the situation is with the 1.3+ as far as the pins/connections needed, with the older MiSTs you c...

No I suspect its a legitimate concern of many current MiST owners who lack the time or technical skills to assemble their own MiSTers.. Such a device is out of reach for them .. Once the SDRAM board design is stable / tested by a few then it should be possible to have somebody make a larger batch a...
