Re: Nintendo 64 and other later Gen Cores

The best you will likely see on the current iteration of MiSTer hardware is GBA and *maybe* PS1, but even those are quite far from reality, despite whatever tweets and optimism you may have seen. And 6 months later, a GBA core gets release. The future is NOW!!! Indeed. 5th gen things fall in the re...

Re: MiSTer updater script

Well, I don't want to sound harsh, and I have maximum respect of the developers working on MiSTer, but I feel somewhat this requirement of "your core cannot be auto-updated unless you transfer your repo to MiSTer-devel" is a kind of blackmailing. Just think about a developer, who creates ...

Re: MiSTer updater script

Do you guys know if its possible to add Mr-X repository so his Arcade cores are updated too? He has some exclusive cores he has made, like Solomons Key, etc... Where should it be added? Which format should I use? Pulling cores from outside the official repository is a bad practice. Only the things ...

Re: [RFC] Mister open source bounties anyone?

I prefer the work stay as a passion project. Bounty systems lead to all the points above and situations where you end up with irresponsible devs just adding bloat features for one guy with a couple of hundred bucks to throw at it.

Re: ao486 Performance Technical Discussion

We really didn't use the SX versions in the U.S. We basically went from the 38, briefly to the 486, and straight to the Pentium (math bug and all). There were a slew programs that required the FPU to run by the time the 486 was popular. I am certainly not complaining. I was pointing out that the la...

Re: MiSTer on Analogue Pocket

I would say it's a safe dichotomy (haha) to assume that at least some of the glorious MiSTer devs would be interested on getting their amazing work on Analogue hardware. I would say that is not safe assumption at all. I think many of the mister devs find them just to be capitalizing on open source ...

Re: AppleII+ core

Would it be a lot of work to support the .dsk format for this core? Most disk images out there are .dsk. The .nib format adds a volume label to it, and is only needed by multi disk games. I figure it would be possible to add the code of dsk2nib in the firmware? Then convert on the fly when selectin...

Re: Gamma correction

I'm not a pro with the fancy calibrations and color corrections and things, but gamma is IMHO the responsibility of the TV, not MiSTer. If your TV can't do it and you care a lot about gamma, then you should probably get a better display. Features aren't free in FPGA. They take up space and make it h...

Re: Commando Arcade in MiSTer

Anyway, I agree . I will remove the pause feature, it is not realistic to have it on an arcade core. I will add a credits option using the P key or OSD to enable it. During credit display the gameplay will be halted as I need to share the same hardware to display the credits. Dude... That's just sp...

I think a reasonable compromise would be to add an OSD option to disable the graffiti on the pause screen. Though I contribute to your Patreon, I am in the camp that finds built-in advertisements crass, and I always remove it in my own personal builds. You can say pausing is optional, just like extr...

To achieve this you have to mix in M&M minis while you compile. Don't use too many red ones or you may get runtime errors.

Slightly off topic but if anyone needs to convert VHDL -> Verilog (2001, 2009 or SystemVerilog) I worked on an automated tool to do it which uses Formality to prove it is logically identical to the VHDL. In 2001 mode it struggles with advanced use of records, particularly multidimensional arrays of...
