Re: Archie Core

Meanwhile, if anyone is using the core with (less) problems - no red screen, no artifacts, less freezing, please share your experience/setup (SD card model and so). I'm using a Red ScanDisk Ultra Plus 64 GB XC I memory card. So far I haven't had any issues. I set my card up using the script located...

Re: Archie Core

Hi! I don't own a MISTer yet, but the Archie core shows the same behaviour on MIST, you can read more about it below (the MIST version's own topic): http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=115&t=27637 Thx, this is very much the problem I'm experiencing. The funny thing is that there are prob...

Re: Archie Core

Yes, the core name is Archie.rbf as recommended (even capital A, other small)
I will investigate further. Any help is appreciated.

Archie Core

First, before I start, thank you for the significant effort! Now about the core. (I know the core is marked Beta, but still) I have tried the core, but I don't know if the problems are related to the core or is it something wrong with my board. Wjen I choose the Archie rbf I get the red screen with ...

You must be more specific... (or even better provide images) so we can understand what you mean.
This core is far from perfect, if I recall well. Try some titles known to work.

Re: MiSTer: MiST on Terasic DE10-nano board.

Looks like my DE10 nano is broken. No HDMI output. I had picture for a while but with heavy flickering and way out of position. Monitor info said 0.0 Hz refresh rate. Tried switch to another monitor. No signal at all there. The board is booting as it should. First blue light then yellow and a flash...

Re: MiSTer: MiST on Terasic DE10-nano board.

Even so, looking at the status page, it is probably a good candidate. I guess it is capable of running lots of ST/STE software.

Google-ing around for ST FPGA, apart from MIST, brings Suska up. They claim pretty accurate ST implementation, but you probably know that. They are also present on this forum. I just posted this as nobody mentioned it as a possible source of information or even VHDL.- but as mentioned, you probably ...

It's not an user-oriented product.

Since the sole purpose of buying the board was/is MiSTer, I was hoping I would not be reading the manual for the dev-board. Obviously I was wrong. Thx anyway.

Re: MiSTer: MiST on Terasic DE10-nano board.

If you don't have I/O board, there is another place of +5V source: you can see the brown wire going from USB connector to a small connector near ethernet: +5V - PIN1, GND - PIN10 I guess (after the initial comment) you finally got it :) I could also say you don't read previous posts, where are stat...

Re: MiSTer: MiST on Terasic DE10-nano board.

Originally, after several hours of working my DE10-nano become hot. I mean the whole board become pretty hot. It's not in case. After adding a 25x25x10 heatsink with 25x25 silent fan the board now is slightly warm now. Did you choose 25mm because of the fan? I believe the chip itself is 22mm, right...

Re: MiSTer: MiST on Terasic DE10-nano board.

Boards do get pretty hot. I'm in search for a suitable passive heatsink (as I really don't like fans) I ordered this one, but I didn't receive it yet : http://www.ebay.com/itm/272706286093 I'm not sure it's big enough to work fanless. Seems good. Aluminum is known to dissipate heat faster then copp...

Re: MiSTer: MiST on Terasic DE10-nano board.

MiSTer already has dedicated I/O board which costs even cheaper if you will order and solder PCB by yourself. You don't need to solder everything on board. Just solder VGA part if only this is needed. MiSTer I/O board has correct holes for retention and convenient VGA connector placement. If you wa...

Re: MiSTer: MiST on Terasic DE10-nano board.

I ordered some heatsinks and will try. With the fan running at really no noise level I played an hour of Wolfenstein 3D. So it definitely is a heat issue. At least that is confirmed now. I really like the core at its current state. It runs a decent amount of games and software. Now it can only get ...

Re: MiSTer: MiST on Terasic DE10-nano board.

So I did more testing and sure enough the freezes reoccurred - I will upload the footage for anybody to re-test. With Wolf 3d it take a bit longer so I was able to finish a level without a freeze. But with SoD it strikes after the first 20 secs. Feels like a memory thing. FM music keeps playing :-)...

Re: MiSTer: MiST on Terasic DE10-nano board.

Also I did some more testing on the ao486. The new core with opl3 support is really stable for the most parts. However running Wolfenstein 3d or Spear of destiny I get freezes after 20 sec of play. This did not happen with the 20170813 core. Not a biggie but could point to some issue. Any news on t...
