Re: Update all script and Jotego cores

The usb version of update all script is for when you have "everything" on the usb drive (by using "Switch to USB" in the OSD). Since I have my MISTer I tried many different things: everything on SD card, games on USB and now Switched to USB, ext4, ntfs and exFAT. I have been using "Switch to USB" fo...

Re: Update all script and Jotego cores

You should have copied only the games directory to the USB drive. What file system do you use on the USB drive? If you just want to have a functional MISTer and do not need to duplicate things this is what I would do: Check That you have everything you need in usb0/games, eventually copy things from...

Re: Update all script and Jotego cores

As of today you will get all public cores but you will miss a few updates on some of these cores. I think they are minor and won't prevent you from enjoying the cores.

Re: Update all script and Jotego cores

Don't get me wrong, I seem to be ranting but I think Jotego does an admirable job with all his arcade cores and if he makes his life and the life of his patrons easier so be it. I am more thinking of MISTer users who are noobs or not at ease with Linux, Github and how the updates of Jotego works. Al...

Re: Update all script and Jotego cores

This getting way confusing. So, the update_all script that comes bundled by default with the MiSTer setup image, will it one day pull the jotego cores once they become public or does it absolutely need to be modified in some way for that to ever happen? It can be confusing and it is becoming madnes...

Re: Update all script and Jotego cores

I just checked as Jotego pushed the updates: I ran the update all script twice. First with beta disabled I got some jt updates. Second with beta enabled I got more jt updates for public cores but, you guessed it, I got a tone of updates for the beta cores CPS2 ans SYS16. People will get pissed with ...

Re: Update all script and Jotego cores

Jotego says:
There will be changes to public cores in JTBIN today.
...
The update_all script will pull files from JTBIN if the beta option is enabled. Otherwise, it will only use JTSTABLE.

It means if you want the updates to these public cores you will have to enable beta.

Re: MiSTer device will no longer allow me to FTP

At first I did not understand as using F9 brings you to the MISTer Linux console, normally I FTP from the PC to MISTer but desin24 says: MISTer -> PC (Linux). It means he is FTPing from MISTer to his PC. A quick internet search says mc = Midnight Commander. If you type mc at the console Midnight Com...

Does anyone know where we place the background on the SD card and what format / size it should be as well as the filename ? You can put it where you want because it won't load by itself, you will have to do it, I also suppose the core will have to be modified in order not to trash the background. T...

First impressions: Disappointed by the nagging/advert popup: it should at least time out so we can enjoy the little there is to see. The system seems to start only for SYSTEM16, no CPS2. How will it go for new patrons? Will they have to use the old method, will they be excluded because they became a...

Re: New distribution system for Jotego cores

You can use the update all script and disable mame and hbmame getters as the script provides an easy menu to do that. For example on my MISTer I disabled BIOS Getter and Names TXT Updater.
