Re: Introducing alternative USB HUB Board

The MiSTer does not track mouse movements with a real Amiga ball mouse connected to the Retronic Design adapter into USB. But why use on old amiga mouse? Using classic DB9 joysticks is different, because it is a completely different feel. It is quite hard to play some games like Decathlon or Summer...

Re: Introducing alternative USB HUB Board

I know you're planning on using the Retronic Design hardware for the DB9 ports but just wanted to mention that the Amiga mouse FW for the Retronic does NOT work with the MiSTer. The MiSTer does not track mouse movements with a real Amiga ball mouse connected to the Retronic Design adapter into USB.

Re: Local Sellers for MiSTer Expansion Boards

Hi all - I received a damaged DE-10 board from Digikey -- the micro USB port doesn't seem to work. They sent me a new one and don't want the old one back. I have no use for it, so if someone wants to pay shipping and can make use of it, it's yours free + shipping. It's the whole kit...

Re: ao486: what do you use to transfer files?

If you're on a Mac, just change ".vhd" to ".img" and double-click the image. It will mount and you can copy stuff to it. When done, unmount the image (drag mounted icon to trash) and rename the ".img" to ".vhd". You're good to go!

Think I figured it out. DOH! You need to update the mister.ini with the new config options when you go to MiSTer_20181221 or you get black screen on some cores.

Re: C64 Core

Is it actually possible to use a USB mouse? :shrug: GEOS is almost unusable without a mouse. And for the C64 there was a mouse. The only question is, is this implemented in the core. At least GEOS will not recognize a mouse attached to the USB port. finally got around to trying GEOS out on the C64 ...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

I loaded Body Blows Galactic (non-AGA) last night and while it ran, the display was almost unwatchable due to rapid vertical shifting +/- 1 pixel. I would guess the game is using an interlaced mode and maybe MiSTer HDMI/scaler isn't handling it very nicely, but I don't know for certain. Are you usi...

So, I am finally getting around to setting up the Minimig core, but I can't get it to work. The core doesn't recognize any Amiga ROM image that is not labeled as "KICK.ROM" (all upper case)... that much I figured out, however, any ROM image that I use results in the display being doubled ...

I suggest to start to use Amiga with floppies first. Actually most games work from floppy. HDF files created in UAE aren't always compatible. As explained earlier it's highly suggested to initialize and format the HDF on MiSTer first and only then use it on UAE to fill with required apps. Okay, so ...
