Snes on FPGA may get sof file release for de 10 nano mister

Reply from my email:-

Thanks for your e-mail.

Currently, I seem to get MiSTer system from other supporters.
However, the source code can not be open source.
I plan to release a sof file of SNES on FPGA for MiSTer.

Nobody is forcing authors to open source cores, as long as it is entirely their own work.

Looking forward to it!

MiSTer needs RBF file in order to load from Menu.

Can't it be compiled like the ti99 4a core

Sadly no - not without the source to compile it from. However, at least an SOF would enable use to flash the FPGA temporarily for testing out the core - but really that is all it is good for ... testing. :shrug:

If the author has a MiSTer and has the license for Quartus Prime Standard, he can:
- take a MiSTer core project, adapt it to put his source and make it work with MiSTer.
- build it to get an RBF file.
- publish the RBF file.
- document how to put external dependencies (ROM for instance).

Obviously, if some major changes may happen in the common stuff (menu, MiSTer interface), the author would need to reflect the changes in his project and rebuild the RBF file.

Did anyone try the SOF posted on
http://pgate1.at-ninja.jp/SNES_on_FPGA/ ... ml#release

There is an English instruction txt file . Apparently only two buttons are enabled (Start) and (A).
Maybe not worth the hassle to set up, as an SD-Card has to be prepared as well (only one rom supported?).

I sure still hope that he will release a normal working core with some rudimentary rom selection. Also a source release would help a lot the integration with MiSTer OSD... :shrug:

Basically, it's not for MiSTer, but for DE10-nano with I/O+SDRAM Boards.
It doesn't use any MiSTer API. And a don't see Joystick support - it's unclear how to play. Probably you won't be able to play besides pressing a single button.

This release is not worth even to try. Don't waste your time.
P.S.: i would happily help in porting this core to MiSTer if author would release the source. He would free from porting task and concentrate on core itself.

this would be fun to play Jet Pilot Rising https://www.romhacking.net/homebrew/97/ it only needs A and start and is a fun game, :D to bad only VGA out, can't try,
