Spectrum Next Core doesn't like the latest firmware

Unread post by Swainy »

Just a word of warning, the Next core doesn't like Next firmware version v1.42. You get an error message if you try and use it.

The latest firmware can be found on their GitHub page: https://gitlab.com/thesmog358/tbblue

The error says that machine is not supported.

It is beta but it works on a real Next. I always update both the Next & MiSTer at the same time usually.

Well a different FPGA is being used for the newer models of the real Next so that might be the cause.
