Re: Recommended Wifi Dongles

I seem to be running into an issue getting WiFi working on mine as well. I ordered the "Ovker" Bluetooth+WiFi one on Amazon, and Windows identifies it as a RTL8821CU as others have gotten working here. Using a USB 2.1 hub (just installed) but only the stock power supply. However, I've only got the dongle hooked up right now, and Bluetooth...

Re: Galaga destination earth sound issue

Yes, I'm getting it, too. I was thinking maybe it was the "GBC-on-GBA" sound issue from other games like Vigilante 8, but I didn't get the sound issues on a GBA with an EverDrive X3.

Re: Captain Saver gfx glitches

Headers contain a fair amount of info, but the most important is that it identifies which mapper chip the game uses, since the mapper isn't part of the ROM dump.

Re: Captain Saver gfx glitches

I have a ROM that did the same thing - I think it's either from an older No-Intro or EverDrive pack. Check out the one in a newer EverDrive pack. CRC32 is FC97FC14 for the one that works for me.

Re: MiSTer all in 1 Shortcircuit video disaster / LTT

No sense getting upset over what is supposed to be an entry-level look at the MiSTer Multisystem. Yes, there's lots of stuff that could have been covered, but doing so gets heavily into the weeds and doesn't help the lay user at all. The video was fine.

Re: DOOM Enemy Behavior?

A bad ROM dump could certainly cause unintended behavior, but I don't think that's the case here. I'm using a no-intro version on both the MiSTer and SD2SNES, and also tested the same ROM in bsnes just for sanity's sake while getting the checksum.

Can confirm that through an original model SD2SNES, enemies shoot at you a ton on the highest level in Episode 3. They do virtually nothing on MiSTer. Definitely some sort of edge case broken in there.

Or if you're comfortable with command line stuff, you can just do a "rename *.srm *.sav" in a Windows command prompt from the save directory. Preferably on a copy just in case something goes wrong.

Re: "complex" cores ?

I suspect "complex" in this case mostly refers to using pretty much all the logic elements available in the FPGA. And as that quoted statement says, when timings are really tight, heat can potentially affect said timings enough to cause undesirable behavior. While it may be rated for those high temps, heat still often reduces the lifespan...

From a legal standpoint it's not great, but I didn't realize that the MAME-GETTER stuff is also a separate script that's part of it, like Jotego's stuff. Good to know in the future. So basically, yeah, if you use the update_all script, just be aware of what you're ge...

Re: New distribution system for Jotego cores

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but Jotego's updater doesn't actually grab the ROMs, right? It's the update_all script, which integrates his updater.

As nice as the update_all script grabbing the arcade ROMs is, I do think it's problematic that it does so. Much like emulators, the scripts should only be distributing the cores.

Re: Is MiSTer FPGA Overkill For My Needs?

Ha, missed a bunch of responses. Still, I'll leave this up. The input lag is additive. You'll get display lag coupled with emulation lag. The MiSTer will still have a small amount of lag from an LCD (although this highly depends on if this is a TV or monitor and the brand), but it'll be less than what you'd get with emulation + LCD. Basically, thin...

Yeah, I'd assume to avoid accidental saves. On the EverDrive, you can map to two buttons, and there have been a few occasions where I've accidentally saved or loaded when I didn't want to.

It looks like Rastan uses some pretty standard chips: MC68000 and Z80, and a YM2151. Don't know anything about the OKI MSM5205 ADPCM chip, but I suspect Rastan would be quite doable.

Seriously, though, I practiced using save states before making my legit runs. Great that this core is getting save states, because even if you're not using it for practice, it's nice to be able to leave off anywhere you need to.

Re: Why I hate emulation.

In most games, the lag isn't even noticeable. Only in the worst case scenarios like Punch-Out!! can you really feel the few frames makes a massive difference. I have really been enjoying the MiSTer project. But there are still advantages to emulation as well, and I liberally use both. And PS1 emulation is definitely better on PC, although for most ...
