Re: Automated saved on non system storage

Oh, I thought Sorgelig had stated the current way was because he didn't want too many SD writes way back when, my bad.

Re: Working versions of TOS

I think they all are, but be aware that the computer's refresh rate is tied to the OS, so you will need two TOS image: a 60hz, American one, and a 50hz, European one.

Automated saved on non system storage

Forgive me if this has been suggested or discussed before, but looking up "saves" is kind of tricky. I was wondering if it would be feasible to allow for saves or data write to be automatically done the moment they are done (instead of having to summon the MiSTer menu) when using an external storage...

Re: Composite Adapter for MiSTer

I bought an RGB to composite adapter from Axunworks and it has been interesting, but I think I should test it further. The adapter worked only through VGA to VGA connection through the I/O board (using a VGA to SCART adapter didn't work at all). Only a few cores actually worked: the NES, SNES and PC...

Re: Recommended scaler settings to rotate vertical-only games? (re: 15 kHz arcade monitor)

The lack of reply should tell you something ;) Until recently, it was not a decent possibility. Now it's usable, and doesn't look too bad actually, but it comes with limitations.

Re: About azerty keyboard

I don't know the exact process or hardware specifications for Apple II and Oric (two platforms I have basically zero knowledge of), but it probably requires different from a simple keyboard layout switch. For instance, you need to insert the proper BASIC ROM into the MiSTer boot.rom ( see the read.m...

Re: Atari 8-Bit Computers

I seem to have an issue now: I can't run anything but cartridges.
When I try to run my Seven Cities of Gold or MULE floppies, it either tells be to not use a custom OS, or to remove the cartridge in the cartridge slot (which there is none inserted, obviously), depending on the machine type.

Hello, not sure where to post this. I just got an AC600 TP link (rtl8812au based, I think?), and it wasn't working out of the box.

Re: No longer saving controller buttons

This is a weird change that's been included in the MiSTer framework abuot a month ago. You have to press the "A" button while in the core (not its menu) to activate and assign a controller to a player. See https://misterfpga.org/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=716&p=5352 for reference.

Re: Has anybody tried C16 core on a 15Khz CRT?

Code: Select all

Content of boot.rom: C1541 + kernal + basic + func_low + func_high
Each part is 16KB.
You can load only part of whole ROM, for example only C1541+kernal (JiffyDOS).
I'm guessing you need the C1541 part and concatenate them, at the very least.

Re: Has anybody tried C16 core on a 15Khz CRT?

It grabs the video frequency from the Kernal (which is why it defaults on PAL for many people I am guessing, as the boot.rom floating around use a PAL one).
Without the boot.rom the first time I tried to run it months ago, I'm pretty sure I experienced your issue akeley, but not anymore.
