Still, you'd need a splitter between the barrel 5VDC-in and the usb port, in case one of the two is for power in (this doesn't make sense really; but I have a BlisSTer board so don't take my advice for granted)

Ahh ok, that's a new development then 😳
We have been using this method for almost 2 years. That's why we don't sell those cables for 2 years or more.

Ricardo dispatches orders with CTT which is the national post/carrier of Portugal, so that generally means shipments will be handled by the respective national carrier in the destination country (e.g. Deutsche Post in Germany, Royal Mail in the UK, La Poste in France etc.)

An alternative is to use an "aggregator" tracking site, such as 17track.net (especially if you're expecting stuff from outside the EU).
In some cases yes.
But with postnord here in sweden they will change the tracking number 9 times of 10 when they put it in their system, meaning no one (the seller/the buyer/postnord/the other postalservice) will know anything.
Until postnord sends you a text or a letter saying you can come get it OR pay taxes on it if it's from outside the EU.

The few times they do not change the tracking id everyone can see what is happening and it often take about a week for any text/letter to show up.

I have ordered stuff many times from various countries (UK, USA, Japan, China, France, Germany etc...) so I know how things work with tracking. Here in Finland the original tracking code is not usually changed by our local post office and tracking system is very reliable, I think. In this case the shipment just seems to be somewhere between the Portugal and Finland because last tracking info is dispatch from Portugal and Finland Post office tracking shows nothing. But I'm not too worried yet. I hope there will happen something during next week. :?

Ricardo sent the package on time, so this is not aimed at him. :)

Dear Ricardo,

When :shock: ??

...and like somebody asked in that thread; will it be usable with the PC as well? I've been scouring the internets for a ready-made one such as this since I got Tempest4000. I managed to locate something similar in Japan a long time ago for top dollar, so I didn't buy it. Following releases by Jeff Minter (which are an experience *not-to-be-missed* especially in VR), made me forget about it for a while :mrgreen:

[Edit] Also, can it accept alternative flyweights and knobs such as these?

@lamarax

Yes it's also compatible with MAME and Retroarch. Our Spinners have premium factory quality and are not cheap but work perfectly. New products will come based on this type of production.

When... I already have 160 unit reserved. We will open backorders of this soon.
Actually I already have almost all product in backorder due the high demand, with 1 week to ship. Have stock of all, 200 boards of all items produced, but need time to check, prepare and ship.

Keep Safe,
Enjoy MiSTer

Thanks!
I've been meaning to actually use something like this mostly with:
POLYBIUS and
Moose Life,
so that's why I asked about PC (Xinput) support.

[Edit] Silly me, of course a spinner will be seen as a 2-axis mouse in windows, not as a controller :oops:

I received my Ultimate Mister Pro on Saturday. The case & parts are well put together and packaged for safe shipping. The PCB case is very nice looking with no external USB bridge to clutter it up, the fan is silent, and it only uses one power brick. If you are in the US and have the patience for international shipping, I found the pricing and shipping very good for a fully loaded setup.

Amazing Service from Ricardo at Ultimatemister.com.
Delivered from Portugal to the UK well packaged (quicker than expected despite the pandemic) the build quality is superb and it all works straight out of the box!
I had a few questions before placing my order and Ricardo was extremely helpful and answered them all. Nothing seemed too much trouble for him.
Looking forward to re-living my childhood now! :D

Highly recommended.

Thanks Ricardo and keep up the good work. :D

I cannot start any SNES or NES game and C-64 core.

Either the screen stays black or displays some random pixels.

These cores used to work in the beginning, meaning two weeks ago when I received the UltimateMisTer. I know that the C-64 core worked and starting a NES game. Starting Genesis and arcade games (or at least Arkanoid) still works by the way, also C-16 core. For the other cores I do not know since I did not use them in the beginning.

I did not really change any settings. And I installed the Mister OS from scratch on another SD card, same results.

When I run the memory test a lot of errors are detected very soon as it seems. Is it because of that? Or why does it not work?

SNES, NES and C64 all need additional SDRAM but Genesis does not. If those three cores are not working and you also get errors in memory test, you very likely have a faulty SDRAM.

Here is the list of cores which need SDRAM:

I sent you a private message Ricardo here in this forum but it is in the outbox folder and not in the sent folder. Did you receive it?

I think this private messaging system here is broken since it displays it in the outbox folder and not in the sent folder. I sent you an email at sales@retroshop.pt and would be glad if you can reply soon. Please check your spam folder if you did not receive it.
