Just registered to give Ricardo some props - ordered a Mister kit plus USB/Neo Geo adapters and VGA/SCART adapter and very much enjoying tinkering with it over the Easter break. Thank you!

@rickdangerous Is there any way to track orders? I placed my order on 12 March and it still hasn’t arrived. I’m in the USA, so I do realize there will be a delay, but I thought that 30 days would be enough time.

There's barely any planes flying between Europe and the US right now. It took my order about 6 1/2 weeks back in January/February.

Hell Yeah!

Startet to lose hope in Deutsche Post, but today they pulled through and moved my parcel into my happy home.

Build Quality and packaging were great, the MiSTer case (Stormtrooper white) looks way better in RL then on pics and is way above
my first 3D printed case.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Ricardo and his Shop, he is a friendly helpfull guy as most of you know and helped me out more then once
in the beginning with n00bish questions.

5/5 Stars

What a guy Ricardo is. Just had my blister usb board and case delivered. My mister is now fully dressed.
Communication with Ricardo was great, he was patient with me and all my questions and super helpful. My parcel was well packaged and arrived within 2 weeks of being posted.
Fully recommend anyone to do business with Ricardo. 10/10.

I have a question about how deliveries from UltimateMiSTer normally work. I thought I'd post it here first to not bother Ricardo as I know he is quite busy.

I ordered an Ultimate BlisSter Case on April 12th, and was of course eagerly waiting for it to arrive. As I know Ricardo gets a lot of orders, and it was on backorder I didn't except it to ship very quickly. So I was positively surprised to get an email about order being complete and with a tracking ID from Portugal post already April 14th.

Now, it's April 25th, and the tracking ID is not possible to use.It just says on the CTT web page "Item not found" and "It was not possible to get more information about the object.".

I am thinking, either I got the wrong tracking ID, or the package is not really shipped yet. But shipping is somehow booked.

How was your experience? When you got a tracking ID, was the item shipped, and could you use the ID to get any information?

I guess can try to get in touch with Ricardo directly, but maybe the forum can shed some light first.

Ricardo creates the shipping label whenever he receives/acknowledges an order. It will go live on the CTT tracking system (and at the same time on your local service's respective site), once he actually deposits the items in the post office.

I am giving up on this shipment from Ricardo. I have contacted him prior to purchase, once on Facebook, and via the email form. I didn't get a response. I ordered anyway, thinking he was too busy to answer questions. I opened a ticket on his web site 3 days ago to get an ETA. I never heard anything back from him on any communications channels. I hope he's alright.

I think you jumped the gun too early. Antonio Villena's addons are sui generis so to speak, so they're not guaranteed to go along with the framework's evolutions (particularly his SDRAM modules).

Ricardo on the other hand, is the worldwide "official" implementer of Sorg's designs, with the 2.9 revision of the 128MB SDRAM board being the most recent example.

PS: Some time ago I queried Antonio regarding the compatibility of his VGA to SCART cable with the standard 6.1 analog I/O board, but he never replied either through here, or through his own store contact form/e-mail, so there's that. I guess he deemed my question stupid, since he specifies on his store that anything he sells is meant for "his products only".

Indeed I did, i now see that a package was posted in Portugal just a couple of hours after I ordered from Antonio. I guess i will be kitted with both... so will be able to compare.

Sorry but my addons are guaranteed to work with official cores. My 128MB SDRAM module is more compatible with all cores and tests.

Never said it wasn't. Please read the post you're replying to carefully.

Seems that you're pretty up on your toes to whatever mention of yours might drop by in these forums, yet you seem too busy to monitor and reply to potential customer queries in here otherwise.

Godspeed

Hi ! I don't want to add more noise to this topic, I just wanted to state that Antonio always replies to my numerous and annoying questions when I email him. [/offtopic] :)
