The snes port is a usb controller kit from retro usb wired to a plug. Will add inside picture when i get chance. Thanks for clarifying that. W...

How did you cut the wholes on the box? they look great!

I have bought an aluminum box myself, but I'm still trying to figure out how to cut it.

As far as I know, the only Multicomp core available is for the MiSTer, not the MiST.

Re: USB MIDI with Minimig/Amiga core

It did not take forever to load - just took forever to start. Also, if you think that's forever then you have never used a Commodore 64 with 1541 drive :) Got it. So it's a MIDI related "delay"... I knew the game never took this long to load without MIDI. As for the loading speed, I used ...

You may be misreading my intentions here...

It's not about wars, it's about helping uninformed users to take a decision.

Re: Core availability on the MiSTer

Hi, Just updated the core list on the main post. I believe we can finally say that MiSTer has surpassed the MiST. It has been incredible the traction that MiSTer gained in the last couple of months, and the scene is now throbbing with updates and flooded with new people. Not only the last big bastio...

Re: USB MIDI with Minimig/Amiga core

Now this is something... great to see Midi working on the 486 core...

Just a question, why did it take forever to load the game? Is is just my memory, or is it much slower than what it should be?

Re: Using an X-Arcade Tankstick with the Mist?

It connects via USB but is seen as a USB or PS/2 keyboard rather than a joystick. And that's exactly how it is supposed to be, because all X-Arcade joysticks "announce" themselves to the computer as being a Keyboard. That's how they are built. If you want it to be seen as a joystick, your...

Do you happen to know what the name (specs) of the barrel plug are for the DE10-Nano?

I'll try to find a cable on Amazon, but I have no idea how to check if its the right one.

Re: MiSTer - Case Universal v5.2 - 3D printed

I do not know what soldering skills you are referring to. I/O-Board of MiSTer hast plenty of connectivity options. You will find 12v, 5v and 3,3v pins exposed. The fan has minimal power requirements. Of course a pin connector or something you crimp on has to be attached to the fan, but soldering I ...

Re: MiSTer - Case Universal v5.2 - 3D printed

I use a 40x40x20 fan with halfed voltage. The problem is that solution requires additional soldering skills (that I don't have) and it's not as plug and play as just swapping the fan. Just checked the price on shapeways and wow... 104€ for the case... Does the quality difference justify the price? ...

I am now using my MiSTer quite a bit more and I'm thinking about 3D printing your model, but would like to use the latest version and (if available) one with support for larger fans. Also, do you ...

I am using an "Anker 60W 6-Port Desktop USB Charger" to power many devices at my desk (such as the MiST) and would love to use it as well for the MiSTer, instead of having another power brick laying around. Can I replace the power brick with some kind of adapter from USB to whatever MiSTer...

Amiga OS 3.1.4

Hi,

Has anyone tried Amiga OS 3.1.4 with the MiST?

I understand that you also need to use a different Kickstart as well, and I am unsure if it is compatible with the MiST.

Re: Are Shaders possible?

Thanks for the quick answer.

What about masks? are they also GPU functions?

I am unaware of how the scanline effect is achieved (is it only ignoring each other line?), but could something similar be built to improve the feeling of a CRT?

Hi, I am a big fan of Scanlines, as they provide a smart way to approximate the visual experience on an LCD to what an old CRT used to be. It helps to smooth out the edges and make the games look more "natural" for me. I understand this is a highly debated and personal topic, but still... ...
