Re: Scripting news

Hi Locutus73, thanks for all your awesome scripting! If I understand your update script correctly, I can define in ini files user variables, which would basically overwrite the predefined values in your script. So if I like to add an additional repository to the predefined ones I need to repeat the...

Re: [REQUEST] SD-Installer Option to Download Latest Cores

Would it be possible to have some kind of SD card image that could be fed into something like Etcher? The problem with this approach is that, usually, the image provides a small partition to start which is resized during first boot in order to fill the SD and I see two issues here: 1) The exFAT par...

Re: [REQUEST] SD-Installer Option to Download Latest Cores

The problem is THAT is a LOT of work to figure out for the general public, with the mass majority of the people not having any idea what a script file is, and have never even heard of Linux or ROMs. THAT is the reality of the majority of people I have dealt with. Unless it is something that they ca...

Re: [REQUEST] SD-Installer Option to Download Latest Cores

An easy approach could be: a) including update.sh with the SD-Installer b) including the necessary MinGW binaries (bash, cURL, sed, etc.) and cooking a simple update.bat for running the upadater in Windows with a double click. It’s pretty easy, I already did that for other scripts I made, the only t...

Re: [REQUEST] SD-Installer Option to Download Latest Cores

A separate executable would work great, as well. People (by the dozens) have asked me if there will ever be any Windows or Mac (non-Linux) native application that can download the latest cores and update the SD card. Nobody likes to deal with Linux. Updates script for MiSTer does its job equally fo...

Re: [REQUEST] SD-Installer Option to Download Latest Cores

Well, it’s not difficult to put together some mingw binaries and a batch script which can run the updater script. The updater would need some minimal changes (which can be patched live with a sed command), because it’s tailored to put some specific files (i.e. main MiSTer and menu.rbf) in a specific...

Re: Scripting news

BUT I think I just figured it out :) The comment prefix I added was a semicolon (used in MiSTer.ini), rather than a hash as used in your scripts. I'm guessing the parser just choked on an unexpected char? There’s no parser, and the INI isn’t really an ini... it’s a piece of bash script included in ...

Is this one of those things where you cross your fingers and hope nothing breaks after updating the Linux image? Is it generally safe to do?
