Re: Amstrad CPC 6128/664 (NEW)

Great news on the CPC updates.
I wonder if the tape loading feature from the ZX Spectrum Core is easy to add (connects through midi connectors?)

This is a very impressive demo which streams from tape:

Re: Amiga/PCE etc cores and OSSC.

Not OSSC but great stuff is happening with the cheap (<€20) GBS-8200/8220 upscaler.

There is custom firmware which fixes loads of issues with the original Chinese firmware. You have to do a bit of soldering but the parts are cheap.

New AMIGA Audio engine - can someone build please?

Hello, I saw that someone recently rebuilt a new implementation of the AMIGA's Audio engine which has solved a few issues. Is it possible for someone to build a new Core using this audio engine with the latest MiST Minimig Core? Audio Engine file http://www.minimig.net/download/file.php?id=743 Forum...

Re: Flea Ohm Zero - FPGA AMIGA (Minimig) in a RPi-Zero-Formfactor

Congratulations on hitting your target! I don't know the tech details so this might not be relevant at all and you might have seen this, but the standard ZX Uno has a 8mbit SPI Winbond flash for Core storage. They have a menu that you can enter to change Cores. As with a lot of these things the code...

Re: Flea Ohm Zero - FPGA AMIGA (Minimig) in a RPi-Zero-Formfactor

Options are always good as I am sure you agree (within price / tech constraints). I am thinking of many setups where people (& me) have a VGA/DVI monitor and desktop PC speakers. HDMI to DVI no problem, but having or the ability to solder on a 3.5mm jack will open up more options to use the Flea...

Great project Valentin, I am looking to back this. I have a MiST and ZX-Uno (Spanish FPGA device). A highly portable AMIGA and old skool PC Core have got my interest! ZX Uno only has 512kb as standard so that limits its PC Core (based on Next186). Question - is it possible to also get analog sound o...

Re: SAM Coupe core for MiST

Glad (but sorry) that others have tried and had issues. It is a shame this is now yet another Core which it is a lottery if it will work on your MiST. The previous Core version works? So what ever was changed has caused the issue. FPGA too full, SDRAM timing issues? We will probably never know. I co...

Re: MiST MINIMIG AGA News!

I have found where to place issues. https://github.com/rkrajnc/minimig-mist/issues
I won't add Pinball Illusions if the problem is already known.

I need to test 'Battle Squadron' again. I think it was this game I tried and the background was missing? And I think I was using AGA & WHDLoad/igame.

Hi DrOG. I got my BL912 adaptor cable all sorted. MiST is great (although for me MiST-SCART to SCART-VGA BenQ is not that useful as nearly all MiST Cores output RGB/VGA). My test hardware for BenQ SCART input is a Mk1 Megadrive. I had a spare sync stripper chip around so made up a cable. The monitor...

Re: MIST and AV signal

Hi, I don't think there is a way to tell unless you try feeding in a signal. I think Commodore had monitors labelled the same, but they used electronics/tv tubes from other manufactures. Mine I am pretty sure is from Korea. I used this guide for the Sync Stripper - http://www.mmmonkey.co.uk/composit...

I have a BL912 also. I got it over the 7?? because the 912 also has DVI so I can use HDMI. On my actual AMIGA 1200 there is some interference/patterns in the picture, but it is perfect with FPGA devices. And yes it is good to have a ratio close to 4:3!

Hi. What do you mean by later hardware? It does not work on my v1.2 PCB or a temporarily owned v1.3 when I had it. I think the issue is a variation on the SDRAM or even the FPGA chip. This is why we need detailed testing. People that can get it to work need to post details: PCB revision, SDcard deta...
