  1. Thank you all for the detailed answers! I will keep tracking Mister's progress. Hopefully the low latency software + hardware adaptors become part of a new "standard" for Mister setups and cores, so they become easy to buy/use for starters. @Newsdee Re my comment about I/O it sounded like I was somehow complaining. It is great that people take the initiative to simplify the hardware parts with the subsequent savings for everybody. The thing is that since everything is moving so fast you may not know when / what to buy, but it is perfectly understandable. And, as I said, it is good news in any case! Thanks for keeping up working on it. Thousands of people are silently following Mister and I think that in the next months Mister may become a massively used device in the retrogaming community.
  2. Hi, During the last weeks many people are starting to be interested in Mister. If you have a limited budget and cannot allow to buy every RGB-modded system + flashcart, it sounds like the perfect retro gaming device. I am still reluctant to enter into it for a couple of reasons: One of the main developers does not seem to have lag issues among his main priorities (to say the least). See post in atari-forum http://92.222.181.53/viewtopic.php?f=117&t=34953&sid=830682cd0116b28859b5973a1dbb3f68#p361485. A perfect lag experience is one of the main faces of hi fidelity hardware simulation and that IS the whole point of FPGA-based systems for someone who just wants to play. If you do not care about lag, the only point for using FPGA systems is to preserve hardware schematics and layouts, which maybe ok for some, but for others the whole thing missess the point, as there are many emulation alternatives available... By the way, someone please explain me how people who seem to be so demanding in terms of fidelity to original hardware uses wireless controllers... Everything is changing very quick (which is not a bad thing). However if those changes affect hardware, it is really is an issue for someone who is thinking of buying. We have just seen that with the new needs for 128 SDRAM (which is ok), but also it seems that the I/O board may not even be necessary for analog output? This reminds me a lot of the situation in raspberry-pi devices like the RGB-Pi. And I perfectly understand the technological differences between them. At first everything looks spectacular, then you see small performance differences vs original hardware, then the lag is not quite the same, some cores never get to the point, etc. Disclaimer: I perfectly understand how wonderful Analogue systems are I perfectly understand that there is a community working on Mister FPGA it on a for free basis, so all my respect to them. Really. I perfectly understand that most of the cores are still in work in progress I perfectly understand that Mister may not be for me and that is ok. I am just stating the reasons why I think it is not for me at this point in time. I am just giving my opinion. For free. Please change my mind.
  3. Being a kid playing first SMB with no instructions. Didnt know that B button also made you run. Always arriving at 8-1 and failing miserably in the big leap because didnt know what to do to jump "longer". For months. I really believe that NES games tought us how to deal with frustration. Today's kids don't have that, that's why they are pussies.
  4. Hi everybody (first post here) Kevtris, thank you very much for your impressive work. The products that we are seeing today were unthinkable not so long ago. I have one question though. The NT Mini has proven to have more potential than expected with the new cores, and looks like an excellent product. However, knowing that the Z3000 is coming, why should one buy an NT Mini now and not wait for the Z3000, which will support 8 & 16bit systems? Thanks a lot!!
