Try the new Menu core release. It has some timing changes.

Re: Newbie questions

I still have the unique problem that only 2 of my 5 HDMI cables work with my DE10-Nano board but all 5 of the HDMI cables work fine when using them with my games PC, laptop, games console and Raspberry Pi's. Probably defective HDMI chip which can't provide enough power with some cables. You should ...

Re: RGB out to scart CRT TV help

I bought a SCART from there too, had to solder the H sync and V sync together in the VGA plug to get a stable picture. Would have combined at the SCART end but it's full of hot glue to prevent opening :/ Very bad idea. You need to undo that and just set composite_sync=1 in mister.ini Also with that...

Re: MiSTer NES Core

But why should one fix any headers when these above are the official verified romsets? I prefer original non modified sets. Because apparently they are not "verified" properly. For example Darkman is set to mapper 0 in the header while it should be mapper 1 according to Mesen. Here is a l...

When i choose the SNES Core for example the Super Mario World ROM fit's perfectly to the screen. But every other ROM (no matter if it is a US or EUROPE version) i get a black border around the screen. You are probably using the European versions of Super Mario World. That one is using 239p mode.

Re: Genesis Core

Re-forking the repo is unnecessary. You should be creating a new branch for every pull request so you don't mess with the master branch. If you create a pull request and then later push updates to the same branch then it will update the pull request. So you can either use interactive rebase to merge...

Re: Benefit of Using a Custom Modeline for HDMI?

Custom modelines are mostly for custom resolutions.

Arcade cores have widely varying refresh rates. You might be able to get them to work if you use a lower resolution but some displays just don't accept refresh rates too far from 60Hz.

Re: SNES core

The current implementation is slow to realign the phase. After frequency and phase alignment, only small adjustments are necessary, within TV tolerance. How slow is it? My TV resyncs within 2 seconds so it can't be more than a fraction of a second. Does it make big changes to the output clock durin...

Re: SNES core

As I understand it the Linux side calculates the PLL needed so the initial frequency is already very close and the FPGA side only needs to make minor adjustments. So I don't understand why there is any sync loss. If my TV is losing sync because of the continuous frequency adjustments then it should ...

I will think about it. Gladly, it's fully doable from HPS side.


Thanks for adding the auto switch! It works great.

Re: MISTer (Main Core)

I would like to see auto switching between 50/60Hz video modes. For example I am running the SNES core with video_mode 8 at 1080p60 with vsync_adjust=2 and when I start a 50Hz game the resulting video mode will be 1080p50 with 60Hz HBlank timings at 125Mhz. My TV does not support that so the screen ...

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 ...

Mostly the low latency vsync_adjust=2 has been working well but sometimes there is tearing in the middle of the screen. Usually after a few minutes or sometimes from the start. Also a lot of times the scaler will just output a single color screen (mostly black) and I have to reboot the system to mak...

what's the difference?


The difference is that its running too fast and not on original clock speed. Can't the system clock be changed to match the real hardware?
