Best 8 bit keyboard

I am a big clicky keyboard fan and have several Model M IBMs as a frame of reference. In the Atari 8 bit line, I have heard it said that the non-XL 800 and the 1200XL had the BEST keyboards. Having messed with the 400, 800, 600xl, 800xl, and XEGS my conclusions are this. The XE line looks to be the ...

Re: NEC MULTISYNC 1770VXBK-2 monitor. 15khz?

Thanks DrOG - I actually have a cable from Lotharek but the crappy Scart To HDMI box I have has such audio buzz noise. May have to get a OSSC and be done with it. Also, JUST SCORED THREE NEW (WELL USED) CRT MONITORS, TOTALLY FREE!!! Going to research the 15khz capabilities: NEC Multisync 2a (model J...

Re: PCEngine core issues with roms?

MAJOR THANKS SLINGSHOT!!! I look forward to testing this update!! In theory, is there enough room on the Mist to support SuperGrafx in this core?

Re: NEC MULTISYNC 1770VXBK-2 monitor. 15khz?

Thanks DrOG. Yes, the best I could find online was that it may be in the same family as one that works, so it is a maybe. Still, even if I got it, I wouldn't know if it was working as the sync thing trips me up. I wish there was a ready to buy cable for Mist.

NEC MULTISYNC 1770VXBK-2 monitor. 15khz?

Hi all! I may be able to nab a dirt cheap NEC MULTISYNC 1770VXBK-2 monitor. I never had a NEC nor a multisync. Anyone have one of these working with 15khz MIST/MISTER cores?

Re: PC Engine core

I saw this core played with on YT. The Mist core is also good but the menu could use some updating. Is anyone working on a Mist version of this core? Theoretically, would the SuperGrafx part be possible on the Mist?

Trying the new core (fpgagen_20181028.rbf). It is amazingly good! Trying to do my part testing some games. Most the sound and picture are just as I remember. I did have some issues I wonder if others have: Mystic Defender - Won't load - black screen and it is a good rom working elsewhere. Rambo III ...

Re: Genesis / Megadrive core ported to MiST

What is the latest revision number - fpgagen-beta_20181013.rbf ? Is it in the community the current best be it beta or not? Sega systems are perhaps my most desired FPGA cores, and if any are near perfect, a single little tear of joy forms in my eye.

Re: Genesis / Megadrive core ported to MiST

Admittedly I don't know all the technical information about it but had a thought as to the debate of the linear vs non-linear dilemma [See MasterofGizmo's "Expanding 4 genesis bits to 6 MIST bits that way causes non-linearity." discussion] I know it's not exactly the same, but as I don't m...

Re: [ZX Spectrum Core] New Update

So if a mist .ini file is edited, then it may work. I'd have to really dive in on the Speccy, but if I create one for myself, I'd certainly share it for the other small group of us.
