Just ordered another complete slim setup for a friend. He needed the floopy drive sound & db9 port :-) (thanks again !)

BTW; can you confirm that when not using a db9 splitter, I can use a single Amiga / CD 32 / Genesis gamepad out of the box ? (with the specific core build of course)

When using an USB interface, I noticed - I don't know if that also happens with the regular build - that I have to push a gamepad button before a given gamepad is activated. In other words, directions / other gamepad buttons don't work until I push the 1st or 2nd maybe gamepad button. Can you confirm this behaviour ? I wonder if that's due to your SNAC patches ?

Cheers !

Hello Antonio!

I’ve recently put together a db9 kit on the de10 nano and have gotten most things up and running. Im only unning into a couple issues. I have not gotten 2 players to work in the genesis or mega cd cores.
The best i get out of the splitter for 2 player modes is duplicated input across both player 1 and 2. Snes games work perfectly however in this regard. Another issue I’ve ran into is that nes controllers into the NES splitter do not work at all with snac. Weirdly though, an SNES controller works perfectly although not being an NES peripheral. I would really like to get NES peripherals working so i can play light gun games. If there is a fix to either of these, it would be much appreciated to know. Thank you for developing this piece of kit and I hope you are having a wonderful day!

Hi

For work DB9 splitter you need to select 2 player on OSD. About NES splitter I have noticed issues on American gamepads. These gamepads lacks resistors like in these pictures. The fix consists add the resistor (3.6K value) on the splitter.

Yes. The DB9 splitter is only for 2player. For one player you can use directly the DB9 port.

I don't noticed but it's a possible bug introduced by the SNAC patches. You can tell to people who did the fork on this Telegram group. https://t.me/joinchat/DwDFfFF3d_4vK-glu8BKiA

Thank you! I installed the two resistors on the adapter as you’ve shown and its working perfectly now. One thing I wasn’t able to comment on in my post was on turbo grafx snac compatibility. I just recently just got a two button turbo control. Although it works fine, the turbo switches do not function.I did some research and I came across a post in these forums by the user Brettstar having the same problem. He was able to solder together the fix himself with your rerouted pcb to accommodate the extra chips. I’m not very handy with a soldering iron when it comes to small chips but the large connectors I shouldn’t have too much of a problem with so i wanna go witg the smd service on JLCPCB. I put the snac.zip you provided to Brettstar on the other forum into JLCPCB and the bill of materials. Only thing I need now is the correct assembly.csv. The one i found is for the usb version and wont work with the db9 version as the chips don't align up.
Thank you for your hard work in this community, i love the work you do and I appreciate you on helping me on completing my All in one FPGA experIence!

Those files don't seem to be working with the gerber file I downloaded from your post on that forum.
Is there a different gerber file that is updated for this bom and cpl?

For clarification, I included the gerber file i downloaded from your post on the other forum. Thanks!

Can a MiSTer RTC board be installed in the Complete MiSTer DRIVE 128MB, 8GB uSD setup?

I was finally going to my dream MiSTer kit from you, but it seems like you only sell it with SDRAM now... (BTW, bug report: the announce still says "This kit doesn’t include DE10 nano or SDRAM module.", even though that is no longer true. Is there any chance you would consider still selling a kit without SDRAM?

Im having problems with my nes adapter. I added the 2 3.6k resistors and same problem as without resistors. What am I doing wrong? I tried the scac and db9 settings too

I have not tried. Probably not. But I am developing a RTC module for my setup.

Yes. You are the 3rd person who ask about kit without SDRAM so I send now both options:

Are the other end of resistor tied to VCC (5V)? I don't appreciate in the picture. You have the schematic here:

Thats how I have it. Lower left point 5V to the 2nd and 3rd points on the second row. I ordered 3.6k 1/4 watt 5% tolerance. Did I get the correct resistors?

Yes. Resistors are ok. Have you trying with SNAC option on OSD, right?

Could you explain how you wire the VGA port?

1. I know that you output sound with it (since your VGA to Scart has sound), and I would like to know on which pins that is. I would like to make sure that I can use a cable like this (https://www.extron.com/product/syvgamalefibncmaleca) to go to my PVM without any trouble (I do understand that this cable wouldn't carry sound, of course).

2. An additional question about your VGA to Scart: do you have a 470 Ohm resistor on the VGA HSYNC pin when going to the scart CSYNC pin?

Thanks for your help!

left channel is on pin 11, right channel is on shield

I don't connect hsync to sync. I do a XOR between hsync and vsync and then I put a potentiometer of 1K

I recently bought a complete MiSTer DRIVE 128MB, 8GB uSD from Antonio.
It took only 7 days to get delivered perfectly packed.
i had a minor issue with the potentiometer controlling the fan not working but he sent me a complete IOUSB replacement board in about 4 days.

Based on my own experience, i'd highly recommend this great and responsive seller. :)

Just received a new parcel from Antonio. Fast dispatch, perfect condition, some nice goodies provided (VGA -> Scart adapter). Great work, thanks again :)
