Re: Off the Shelf Trackball Options

Re: New Rotary Joystick From GRS in Pre-prod Testing

Re: Joystick not working on Spectrum core

With the Spectrum it is vital to pick the correct Joystick interface in the game. If I recall correct you can also pick the interface in the core menu. Make sure you choose the one ingame you have set in the core menu. Usually I pick the Kempston interface as most games bring support for it.

Re: Dual SDRAM with Mixed Versions

Additionally to the I/O board it is possible to get an analog signal out of the HDMI port. You just had to use an HDMI2VGA DAC. Simply enable direct video in the MiSTer.ini and the MiSTer will send the analog signal through the HDMI port. I never understand, why people are ignoring this option. It is available for years now.

Re: N64 Core

Let's say software emulation is more affected by bugs, while with FPGA: when you add support for more hardware features in the core, it's very unusual a game which used to work in a previous version won't work in the new one. This is neither the way software emulation works nor it is the way FPGA simulation works. Both approaches are interpretatio...

Robert has brought 3 powerful cores to the MiSTer with the GBA, PSX and N64, that's more than anyone could ask for.

It's even more, he also made the Lynx and the Wonderswan core, so he has 5 cores under his belt and I would say at least 50% of the 486 core should also be contributed to him :)
