Re: Saturn

Why don't you lend a hand to make it better then? You seem to know all about it's issues.. Like the Linux kernel, MAME rejects almost all patches that come from outside their small group. MAME has grown so monolithic that patching the sound to work in one game will break behavior in 50 others. MAME...

Re: First Q*Bert Release

Yeah, 8:7 looks perfect to me, I did a custom aspect ratio for the qbert core personally by adding something like this to the MiSTer.ini (can't remember and not being bothered to check atm): [qbert] custom_aspect_ratio=8:7 And it looked exactly like the arcade picture I posted above. For reference, ...

Re: Loud popping sound though analog audio port

Maybe switch to mini-TOSLINK and see if the audio problem persists. If you are using an analog I/O board, that same 3.5mm jack is simultaneously a mini-TOSLINK optical jack. So you could test it by getting a mini-TOSLINK to TOSLINK cable and getting a DAC from Amazon or something (or test on a TV/s...

Re: User Button on IO Board

usually arcade cores, If I am playing a cps1 game and then change to any other core without reseting, the screen gets messy and sound without sync dodonpachi also is a good example That sounds like an issue to be raised on their repositories to me.

Re: Super Mario Bros Demo Out of Sync

Watching the videos, yup this is expected and happens on original hardware.

Also the videos aren't great examples as they both appear to be from different software emulators I think. At least the first one is (it's from FCEUX, but thankfully FCEUX is highly accurate at least).

Re: Finally jumping in. Is there a ‘best’ 128MB module to order?

Personally, I'd avoid eBay. I've gotten them from MiSTerAddons.com and from MiSTerFPGA.co.uk before and they've both worked just fine and passed the intensive Jotego memory tests.

Re: First Q*Bert Release

Looks like the aspect ratio got fixed already! :) Somehow the new aspect ratio looks a bit too slim, I wonder what it is based on. The 8:9 ratio I calculated to get integer horizontal scaling is a little bit wider and IMO better looking. The aspect ratio of games like this are 8:7 and 4:3 typically...

Re: NeoGeo roms fail to load, I see 000-lo.lo before going to blue screen

Something is different with your files. I have the Darksoft Neo Geo set, and when you zip up AOF2, it's 11.4MB, not 12.6MB.

Re: New MiSTer Owner Help Setting Up

In my experience this depends on a lot of different factors. If you are using the stock power supply from the DE10-Nano and a usb hub addon board you will often run into an issue where you are undervolting something among these. That can cause issues. Is this a common problem? I recently switched f...

Re: USB hub damage

You can always try resoldering on the usb hub board, nothing to lose there since it's not working anyways. If it doesn't work and it's just the bottom micro usb that is messed up, then you could try getting the different kind of adapter that plugs into the headers on the USB hub as a replacement -->...
