Re: MidiLink 2.0 looking for testers. (no MIDI devices required)

If that was the issue then the problem would also occur when using a real MT-32 or MUNT on windows when (connecting via remote:UDP) or even when using FluidSynth. That has never been reported. MUNT sometimes exhibits the same behavior using the Minimig core too - which does run the UART at 31250 fo...

Re: MidiLink 2.0 looking for testers. (no MIDI devices required)

I've been testing MidiLink using the internal MUNT/FluidSynth and I have to report the same as other users before, MUNT doesn't sound right, it feels like it cannot handle all the notes and there is a point were it releases several notes at once to get up to speed with the melody. Not sure if it's a...

Re: Direct Bluetooth gamepad support

In my opinion I think it's preferable to give priority to devices that try to follow standards first, and leave proprietary/custom/exotic protocols as a secondary objective. I would much prefer to ensure a painless support of standard BT devices like 8bitdo gamepads, which in general are cheaper, an...

Re: Direct Bluetooth gamepad support

Can this be also used to pair a BT mouse or keyboard (or combo)?
Is it possible to map one of the 3 buttons on the I/O board to initiate the pairing of controllers? It would be great if we can use one of the LED indicators to signal the pairing/searching/connected mode by its blinking speed.

Re: ao486

Does anyone else's ao486 crash constantly on either startup or DOS? For some reason my core crashes almost all the time. Especially when trying to use CTMOUSE. Sometimes it will just start and report a fatal error with the mouse. I'm also wondering if it is because of my QEMM shenanigans. Or perhap...

Re: ao486

Fantastic! I found some similar example but they are not necessarily current for MiSTer usage. It's a shame that DOS 6 isn't freely available, otherwise we could package a VHD ready for use with that and maybe a couple of demo/shareware/PD games. I'ver never tried FreeDOS so not sure that is a viab...

Re: Core contributions to MiSTer

If I may suggest, an issue present with the ao486 emulator is that its BIOS it's not fully compatible. It somehow maps things in the 640KB-1MB area in a different way than what most machines at the time used to, and this presents incompatibility issues for software that intends to use the upper memo...

I suspect that the core could arrive in the shape of an Analogue NT Mini, Kickstarter, or something along those lines.

Still, it's good to see the capabilities of MiSTer.

Re: I/O Board thread

There are no internal USB connectors where you can connect additional board or hub. The places where you can solder a break-out USB board are very tiny and cannot be recommended to anyone. So it's up to you how you will mod this part. Yes, that's why I commented about the 3rd picture in the link, t...

About future expansions: I'm thinking to add a second SD card for FPGA only access in raw form. In general it's not so good idea. I prefer the cores with unified data access through existing MiSTer API with all data in one place. But, some interesting cores require raw SD card access and it's hard ...

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

According to the ao486 readme : The core was modeled and tested based on the Bochs software x86 implementation. And if we check the Bochs BIOS : We recommend to use the ROM images distributed with Bochs or one of the latest SeaBIOS images Turns out that the SeaBIOS rom is used by KVM and QEMU. This ...

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

New ao486 release. Don't forget to update MiSTer and BIOS! At this stage I think the core is working great with anything I've thrown to it. The main issues I'm detecting are related to memory management in the 640KB-1MB area: Ultima VII and EMM386. Also using Qemm386 so far is fine for EMS but I've...
