Re: Audio pop issue on power and when loading cores?

It's normal with the analog output on the MiSTer. I get a pop or click upon startup and initializing a core. Have you tried measuring the output for DC offset? If there's a large offset this can cause pops and clicks like when it's initialized, which would be my guess. A DC offset when it's triggered or removed will cause a pop or click when the ou...

Re: Copy One Micro SD Card to Another?

Yup, it can take forever depending on the speed of your interface. It literally copies bit for bit, so it doesn't care about actual usage.

8 hours or so is what it takes me using this method as well.

Re: Old-school music production with MT-32pi and Cubase

Hi all, It worked. In Cubase, I can now play the MT-32pi with my keyboard, and record notes into Cubase, having connected the keyboard to the MiSTer with a Roland UM-1 MK-2. Audio is routed from the MiSTer into the Roland Studio Capture sound card. This is my setup. It will get even more interesting if I can sync the Midi and route the audio into ...

Re: How to fix the sound issue in C64 core?

Can you link to those similar posts?

Does the choice of chip (8580 or 6581) or filter settings influence this problem?

Are you talking digital (via HDMI) only and/or analog out?

What's your sample rate in the INI?

Re: Help with Dell 2007FPB

First make sure your vertical scaling mode is set correctly: vscale_mode=1 ; 0 - scale to fit the screen height. It appears so from the snippet of your INI, which I assume is not the whole INI. Make sure you use an actual, full INI file - make a renamed copy of the main version that works and simply edit the new video mode(s) in. Have you tried a s...

Yup, the Amiga version (by Random Access) is better than the arcade. Fixed bugs, improved the gameplay and sound, while remaking the excellent graphics. The same is true of Silk Worm on the Amiga (also by Random Access), better and improved - even the SFX are better.

It also allows for my friends to set high scores on my list, even when they're playing on their own setup - as long as they use identical settings (as shown below the high score table for each game) and I input it for them or they get the password for setting the edit token.

Re: MiSTer AO486 Shareware Pack and MyMenu DOS Frontend!!!

Thanks for the replies. Wing Commander seems to need a manual setting of the turbo function to Slow, or it won't play nice.

Let's see if the repo for the pack gets updated with the newest menu + other settings. Could be it takes care of itself in future updates.

Re: ao486 with Top 300 DOS Games Pack - TOO easy to set up?

Okay, thanks - but where is that? I can't locate any such place on the SD card. I can't find it in the menu system itself either.

Is it something you can only find via DOS or a Windows machine perhaps? It's not clear to me where this file is located and how to edit it if it's not in Linux or something you can do on a Mac.

Any chance you know how to change and see the turbo speed in the new MyMenu? This was shown in the upper right corner of the TDL, but it's gone in MyMenu.

Looks like it was supposed to be in the lower line of the menu, but nothing there and F3 doesn't seem to do anything.
