I saw this a few days ago too and was intrigued. I would like to see it, i have a MiST.

I'm the person who ported it. I mentioned it in Speccery's "TI-99/4A with a Pipistrello FPGA board"
thread a week or so ago. It's for the MiSTer, though not the MiST. It should be relatively easy to do for MiST, but I don't have one. Speccery said in that thread he might port it himself, but if anyone wants to try, I'd be happy to answer questions if I can help.
I did make a couple of improvements. I added instruction cycle counting so games run at close to correct speed (can be turned off with Turbo setting), and I fixed some audio distortion from overflow issues.
Did you just port the 99/4A console to MiSTer or did you port other hardware for it such as 32k, Floppy Disk controller, etc ?

Greetings! This is exciting news! Congrats on the FPGA core creation. I just got into messing with the TI99 and you can pick them up inexpensively. I like their sleek look and keyboard feel. I got into them BECAUSE of the absence of a MiST FPGA core. I'd love to see this get developed. Even if like some Beatles records where mono mixes were the main project and stereo the afterthought at the time, Mister projects with more headroom can always be ported for systems that still fit on the MiST. Interestingly some YT video comments also talk about porting this to the ZX Next too. Any updates on the MisT port?

Is this project still going, be it Mist or Mister?

Still hoping to push this in the right direction. I did see these links:
-the latter is the mentioned Speccery page.
