Re: My DE-10 nano died

Thanks for all your answers. My MISTer is not yet in a case but I am very careful with it. The only thing I do is to power it on/off, I did not take out the SD card in ages as I always use ftp or ssh. When this happened I had the MISTer powered off the previous evening and just powered it the next d...

Re: support for pimoroni keybow please

Sorry for the late answer. I do not know the exact details but it seems like MISTer does not support 2 keyboards connected at the same time. If you have one keyboard connected and the Pimorini keybow (which looks like a keybaord) I suppose one of them will not be usable in MISTer. Are you using your...

My DE-10 nano died

It was working fine yesterday but when I powered it up today only the power LED and the fan came on. I replaced the SD card with another one, same thing. I removed everything and powered the DE-10 nano, same thing. I wiggled the DE-10 nano in case of bad contact, same thing. I checked my power suppl...

Re: Hardware Buttons without IO Boards

Thanks so much! The only place I’ve seen User used is dirtying the define joystick procedure to skip a button. While I love the idea of it being 100% self-contained, I’d always still need something to navigate the menu with, so I think I’ll just keep it with no buttons and use a keyboard if I ever ...

This problem has been here forever. The solution is simple: ssh into MISTer run the rtc script once. Now the rtc script will work from the OSD.

Re: Mr. Fusion - Universal MiSTer SD card image

Thanks for the answer. Yes, by actual method I meant the old official method.
I previously used Etcher and Win Imager for other projects. As a Windows user I did not realized the inconvenience for other OSes.

Re: Booting problems

It occurred to me that the problem may be more complicated than I thought: the booting process is done by the BIOS and MISTer would have to tell the BIOS about the boot order.

Re: Booting problems

I try to have my MISTer up to date at all times. I just did it this morning to install yesterday's updates.
I first posted here in case I was doing something stupid as it seems strange that no one experienced this problem. Could anyone check before I report it on github?

Booting Problems

it seems that the boot order is broken: if the floppy is mounted it always boots from the floppy regardless of what it says in the boot order.
I also cannot boot from a bootable CD (checked by booting the iso in a virtual machine).

Re: Switch to USB in the menu

Yes, all of this is confusing and I discovered it yesterday. Initially hdparm was for IDE drives and earlier types of drives (/dev/hdn) while sdparm was for SCSI drives (/dev/sdn). SATA drives are considered SCSI drives (/dev/sdn) but hdparm work with them. I double checked under Windows as I found ...

A strange thing happened while creating a new SD card

I created a new SD card using the "old method". After booting I got a "No File" message and no menu. I could ftp and ssh into MISter so I decided to run the update script to see what would happen. As soon as I started the script I realized that I completely forgot to create a MISTer.ini. I let the s...

Re: Switch to USB in the menu

Thanks for your answers. I do not plan to use the "Switch to USB" and I will use only the games directory from the HD while keeping the games directory on the SD card empty. This will leave as much empty space on the SD card in order to minimize the wear. Now I have a problem: my disk "spindles off"...
