Re: Would a Super Game Boy core/function be possible?

I think the big problem with the SNES core is that it's close to full with all the other various mappers and hardware extensions. I would be interested in a core that forked off the SNES core with the sole purpose of implementing super game boy stuff with proper accuracy, though. I think it's fine ...

Re: Outboard MIDI

I have two little questions :-) 1) Is there a way of having both a MT-32 (or Pi-Midi) and a Sound Canvas (or Fluidsynth) with a single ao486 configuration (with different MIDI ports so that you can set those once and for all in games) ? 2) would be pretty happy with Munt running on the MiSTer -- it...

Would you be willing to ship to the US? If so, how much? (Colorado, 80501) I'd be interested in that IO board.

Re: Hardware Buttons without IO Boards

This is a great question! I've been meaning to figure it out, too. :) If those pins are correct, then all you need to do is connect one of the button's connectors to the appropriate pin and another one to Ground. Pushing the button 'momentarily' connects it to ground, which closes the circuit and te...

Happily! I've always dreamed of having an MT-32, and it took a little longer than I'd hoped to figure this all out, so I'm glad it helped. :D

Re: Emulation available for Roland MT-32 or other more advanced sound cards?

Is this something with public code/binaries? It would be nice to have a more portable way to do UDP MIDI. I've got a couple single board computers that I'd like to test and see if they're up to the task. :D I just use the exact same MidiLink program that is included with MiSTer on the PI. https://m...

I wrote this up in the ao486 section, but it should be applicable to any core that can use Midilink should work with this.

Re: Emulation available for Roland MT-32 or other more advanced sound cards?

I don't have "MT-32 Pi" and I have not used the project. I find it interesting, but use my own RPi based MIDI solution that uses UDP vs physical MIDI adapters. Also, all of my best DACs are USB which it unfortunately does not support. Is this something with public code/binaries? It would be nice to...

By convention, if a network device is connected and doesn't have contact with a DHCP server (which is what hands out IP ...

Re: Emulation available for Roland MT-32 or other more advanced sound cards?

One last thing to note, I did notice while using the MT-32 ROM with MUNT, there were a few hanging or skipped notes on occasion. It wasn't nearly as bad as when I tried using the MiSTer's built-in MUNT, but it was still noticeable enough. Is this something you have experienced, and if so, do you kn...

Re: Emulation available for Roland MT-32 or other more advanced sound cards?

Oh and don't forget that you'll need to run audio from your MiSTer into your PC's line in just in case any games use both MIDI and OPL2/3 effects. For what it's worth, I set up this configuration on a Dell Venue 8 Windows tablet -- it's got some old quad core Atom Z3xxx and 2 GB of RAM and it ran gr...

Re: Emulation available for Roland MT-32 or other more advanced sound cards?

So, after playing Under a Killing Moon for a while with the SC-55 soundfont on the built-in Fluidsynth, it sounds way better than the Sound Blaster soundtrack, and it’s consistent, with no hanging notes. By the way, speaking of MUNT, I know the Raspberry Pi is a popular way to connect MUNT to the M...

Re: Emulation available for Roland MT-32 or other more advanced sound cards?

Actually, Roland MT-32 / CM-32L support is now built in to MiSTer thanks to Midilink . The Munt emulator runs on the Arm processor on the DE-10. You will need to supply your own copies of MT32_CONTROL.ROM and MT32_PCM.ROM by putting them into the /media/fat/linux/mt32-rom-data/ directory. After firi...
