Re: The last MIST

It is always sad to hear about the discontinuing of a great product, but that's how things go in this world. My main concern is that there is no real replacement for the MiST for end consumers. If you are an enthusiast (and skilled in electronics) you can move on to the MiSTer, but that is technical...

Re: Thank you <3

I don't have a MiSTer yet, but I've been checking regularly it's progress and it has been amazing. Sorgelig is doing an amazing job in pushing this project forward, and many other community members are also helping. I'm waiting for the stabilization of the daughterboards (they have been heavily revi...

Re: Mist expansion (in theory)

New hardware won't make new cores appear :) the MiST can still benefit from core upgrades. And this says it all... Even the MISTer, is for the most part only getting ports of existing cores. Don't get me wrong, I still think its great and hugely appreciate Sorgelig's work, but unfortunately program...

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

I guess that having the NF-A4x20 FLX 5V connected to the 3.3v rail will significantly reduce the noise from 14,9 dB(A) to somewhere close to 12dB(A), while at the same time maintaining an airflow of approximately 6m³/h. Is that enough for the MISTer? If it is, I have to admit that's quite silent for...

Its great to see how far the case has progressed. Thank you so much for all your effort and contribution to the community. I do have a request for a future version if you would consider it. One of the issues I have with the current design is the small fan, mostly because small fans are noisy. Would ...

Re: Some basic Mister Questions

Can I add another basic question. Will the ST core be ported at some point? when someone would like to port it, then it will be ported. Or everything should be done exactly by me? You have spoiled us... now expectations are high... :) Kidding, of course you should not be the only one porting cores...

Re: AMIGA: MIST vs Pi3 vs Vampire/real Amiga (4000?)

Wow... that is a huge gap in performance (almost 2x).

I would be interested in seeing the results from some of the other users (to see if I am doing something wrong).

Would the rest of the community care to share?

How does the ZX Uno stack up against the MiST (for the Spectrum core)?

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

This looks interesting, although I am not sure how much size matters for these boards.

The current size of products like MiST is already quite compact to emulate an Amiga, can easily fit (almost) anywhere and it has more ports.

Nonetheless, it is still an interesting option.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: How actively are you using your MiST?

Just out of curiosity, how many of the Verilog/VHDL specialists in the community are capable of developing new chips (not only port cores)? All of them?

I guess the skill level required will be quite different, no?

Anyway, it is always more than the skill I have :-)

Re: How actively are you using your MiST?

Interesting to me would be to know which cores are most used. Why hours, days of work to a core for 3 people? I'm not sure if I agree with you on this one. Even if you only have 3 MiST users for one of your cores, you will still be building a sound foundation for all future FPGA platforms where you...
