I found that on GitHub page there is some html file to "port" games but, I am looking for clean way to convert roms from that pack that I posted to BIN files.

Also read me isn't completed yet for now how to use this, so core author posted one game that for now is playable by this core

Hopefully will be added to Main soon, would be the first real update in awhile.

I assume there's no way to get it to display vertically on a horizontal HDMI display?

I've donwloaded this romset https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ouABwh ... 86rko/view but games are in *.mgw format. I do not have any idea how to convert them to BIN.
Hello,

has anyone already converted the other games?

thx

Hopefully @pierco comes back, looking at his twitter he's been working on a Super Vision core. Be nice if some of the finished cores he has done make it into main.

Yes, I'm sorry, I wanted to make a first release of the Supervision core before going back to G&W. I also worked on the HMCS44 MCU so I should be able to port some new VFD games to MiSTer soon.

It might be an unpopular opinion @pierco, but I'm all for you finishing the Supervision core first then going back to the Game & Watch core. The reason is that MiSTer already has all four Game & Watch Galleries playable on the Game Boy cores which unlocks over half of the Game & Watch library. They're the definitive ways to play G&W imo and also come with modern versions of the games.

Supervision would be a cool core to add because I've never played it before, but I've played G&W to death lol. I'm not saying I don't want the G&W core, but the Supervision core would be a greater priority just in my opinion.

On my side, I agree with your opinion @KremlingKuthroat19 it is for me a valid point to say that some of the G&W games can be played vie the GB & GBA core till the G&W core will permit this. I would put also the priority on the Supervision core for the reasons you pointed out. So you have my vote also :-)

Thanks for the update! Supervision is a cool core to get, will need to get the games downloaded.

Are you going to add Scramble and Galaxy II to the main repo?

Hey Pierco, did you manage to finish your Supervision core? Good to see you and Alan are making good progress on the Coco.

@Moondandy, nice to hear that the Coco core is moving forward. Not the right section to discuss this but I hope that the ADCin will be taken into account as some program pack request audio input (like the Audio Spectrum Analyzer) and of course to also be able to load real tapes. Will see.

Might be worth you starting a new thread in the right section for Coco and popping a request in, can see if Alan and Pierre can get eyes on it. Also exciting is they are looking at coving some of the clones and cousins as well, so hope for a Dragon 32/64 core which I know at least one person will be very excited about.

You're absolutely right, just need to figure out how to start this in a proper way, I'm use to answer to already existing threads and never created a new one by my own :-(.
Anyway, a Dragon 32/64 already exists and works pretty well.
