Re: Broken Micro-USB power connector MiST 1.3

I ended up sending it to the man himself (Lotharek), who soldered on a barrel connector and drilled a hole in the case for it.
I just put a bit of black tape over the empty hole and it looks good as new :cheers:

Re: Amiga OS 3.1.4

I was able to test 3.1.4 briefly before my MiST broke. It works fine. If you're using the BestWB add-on, you have to remove 68020.library to be able to boot. I was already using a 4 GB HDF formatted with PFS3 plus I had made the entire 32 GB SDCard available with FAT95, so no change there, other tha...

[Solved] Broken Micro-USB power connector MiST 1.3

So sadly, my MiST appears to be damaged. Today when trying to power on the device, I found the power cable a bit loose, and when I pulled it out, the entire micro-USB connector dislodged from the board and fell out. https://roughlyit.hopto.org/lychee/uploads/big/1b46410cb1cd2614ed57de7fd9dd76da.jpg ...

Re: Newbie MIST peripherals

I'd start with the VGA out and then look into converters if it doesn't work. On my BenQ monitor, everything works except for the Atari ST high-res mode (640x400 2-color) which is pretty non-standard. You can probably open the OSD on the TV and choose whether to stretch the image to the screen or dis...

Re: Mist Power Supply.

I´d buy a correctly rated, good quality PSU, e.g. from Amazon. Why would one want to risk his precious MiST board, just to save a few €? OP mentioned "Samsung adapter", I assume for mobile phones/tablets (fixed cable with micro usb), on that case, the voltage on the end of the cable is 5v...

Re: Minimig help - n00b! HDF issue

The difference is that the MiST works more like a real Amiga and needs the RDB (partition table).

However you should be able to boot from DF0 regardless of whether the hard file is working. Do you get floppy disk animation at all? Can you get into Workbench using an ADF file?

Re: New AMIGA Audio engine - can someone build please?

I believe the clock frequency of the Amiga core was even lowered at one point in order to maintain stability. It would of course be nice with Vampire-like performance on the MiST, but stability and compatibility come first, IMO.

BTW, any news on the audio engine?

Re: MiST Cores - What do you want to play today?

I mainly play with the C64 and Amiga cores, since those were the two computers I grew up with.
I keep them on the same SDCard though, because I don't want to wear out the SD card mechanism. A 32 GB card is enough for pretty much every single C64 game ever made, and most of the Amiga ones 8)

Sounds good! Will it be possible to merge those changes into the latest "beta" core (1.2.2 Beta from 2017-01-15)? Even though it's "beta", it fixes a lot more issues than it causes, and is more stable than the 1.2 release from 2016. Yes, that's the version I'm using as a base - ...

Re: The last MIST

I think the big hit to FPGA boards (ant ot MiST of course) came from Raspberry Pi. The cost of RPi is just a fraction of custom FPGA board and it can do much more than FPGA does.

Re: MIST C64 core

I agree, thanks for the great work! It's great to see some of the cores getting updated. With the old SID fixes and the new compatibility improvements, the C64 core is indeed extremely compatible now, just a few minor glitches in a small number of games.

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

Yeah, only a few late 90's 3D games will give you problems on the MIST (and some 3D software etc. that needs FPU), but those games didn't run great on real Amigas either unless you had a 68040 or ideally a 68060 @ 50+ MHz. My A1200 had a 68030 @ 40 MHz, slightly faster than the MIST (with a recent c...
