Re: X68000 core

There's a response from the X68000 author, which using Chrome's translate says: "I'm interested in DE10-Nano rather than MiSTER. This time I struggled to rewrite the FD emulation in hardware, but if it is possible to do disk emulation on the ARM side because DE10-Nano can use Dualcore ARM that ...

i dunno, i'm pretty sure the guy wasn't lying to me. I would consider the de-10 nano to be a CPU/FPGA hybrid system... what else would you call it? There are many posts about "hybrid emulation" in this thread on Atari Age: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/261689-retroblox/ You might have ...

Commando was a game I remember playing in the arcade as a kid and then purchasing for NES and being disappointed that it didn't look as good.

Re: Ghosts'n Goblins on MiST

I have seen it. It even happens during the demo. It happens when you press up and there is no ladder to climb. I think it is a bug in the Motorola 6809 cpu core. I have told the author of that core but he's pretty confident about his core and it is fair to say that just with that failure it is very...

Re: Scaler

@cacophony If you look at the changelog you'll see that most cores (including Genesis) have been updated with pll_hdmi_adj.vhd on Dec 31, so vsync_adjust=2 didn't do anything on the Genesis core back in Dec 26. Also, as Grabulosaure said, the convergence (synchronization) time is slow on other core...

Re: Scaler

Are you sure vsync_adjust=2 is working now with all cores? I think you need the special cores by Grabulosaure to activate the low latency mode, the official cores do not support low latency mode yet, afaik. If I understood Grabulosaure correctly, the current implementation is triple buffered hence ...

Re: Test Input lag: Megadrive vs MiSTer FPGA and also Megadrive vs RGB-Pi... Which one?

I agree with most of your sentiments but there is already lag free solution for most of the cores on Mister and that's the analog output. If input delay means that much to you (and it should if you're considering using Mister as a hardware replacement) then you shouldn't use the HDMI anyway. I'm su...

My hope is just to allow open and constructive discussions about possible approaches. I'd love a way to test the various USB adapters and controllers I have. Some may be worse than others. Maybe we need a controller test core, haha. For video there is the 240p test suite: https://sourceforge.net/pr...

So you already have three camps in this area, and whoever deals with this "lag" issue will never see the end of it because of people complaining for different things (from different goals and assumptions). My hope is just to allow open and constructive discussions about possible approaches.

Re: Test Input lag: Megadrive vs MiSTer FPGA and also Megadrive vs RGB-Pi... Which one?

The brain only tricks you into perceiving less input lag then there really is. The real reaction time is still longer with higher input lag and games which needs short reaction time like Punch Out will be much more difficult. it looks like you didn't read what you've quoted. In regular predictable ...

Good job on the comparison!


It just means that the lag from USB handling is less than 2 frames, which is the granularity of the video.

Re: Test Input lag: Megadrive vs MiSTer FPGA and also Megadrive vs RGB-Pi... Which one?

The first video shows identical results, but that's expected because the framerate of those video is only 30fps and you're bypassing the scaler lag by using analog out. The second video has the pi about 70ms slower to respond.
