Don't fall for the scam OP.
>>81260981. Nah, the only advantage is to stack the boards and make the whole thing more compact, less tentacular. 2.Indeed some cores can run with the in board DDR3 ram, but it's just not worth cause the number of cores using is really limited, so you better buy a SDRAM3. It's easier to make more accurate emulation with FPGA, just think like the technology itself make the job easier to optimize, of course you still need the skill but one should also acknowledge with this technology makes things different. So yeah Saturn core in the end will be more accurate.How much time is gonna take ? I don't know but way less than it took for software emulation on PC to be at the current point.4. No Idea for that one
Just a quick reminder that your 4ghz gayming pc still can't run logic simulations in real-time and never will.>"Presently, GateBoy runs at roughly 6-8 frames per second on a modern 4GHz CPU. As it turns out, emulating all those gates and the various clock phases at play in the DMG-01 takes plenty of processing power. However, compilation optimizations do a lot of heavy lifting, so in some regards, GateBoy runs impressively quickly for what it is."https://hackaday.com/2021/09/07/gateboy-is-a-game-boy-emulated-at-gate-level/Time to cope>>8126098>Are there any functional advantages to using the official USB daughterboard or will I be fine just plugging a splitter or powered hub into the DE10 Nano's USB OTG port?No, you can use any USB 2 capable hub. (If you want to use HDD's make sure to use an external powered hub)>How much worse will the cores that don't require an SDRAM module run if you don't have one installed?Not that much ... either they work without the SDRAM or they don't.>Will the Sega Saturn core be able to surpass software emulators in terms of accuracy/compatibility or will it just be an passable recreation but with the benefit of less latency? Aside from the garbled audio it looks fairly promising so far, at least when it comes to Bug and Earthworm Jim 2. Not holding my breath until I see some footage of heavier 3D games like Daytona, Virtual On or Powerslave though, I hear that the DE10-Nano might not be on that level.Most cores on the MiSTer are more like hardware emulators. So the accuracy/compatibility can vary from core to core. One thing that can be guaranteed is the deterministic behavior of the cores so no matter what the video/sound/inputs/... will always behave the same way without jitter or other stuttering (unless the emulated system does it in that place due to hardware limitations)
>>8126653Show me an example of a pc unable to emulate these shitty consoles... you can't, you just quote some retarded lie
>>8126869Based ESL retard
>>8126098>Are there any functional advantages to using the built-in garbage or do I need to fork over more money?>How much worse will it run if you don't fork over more money?>Will it finally do anything regular emulation can't do but for free or will it continue being snake oil for retards?>I still want to fork over money like a retard but want more expensive plastic and less reliable than emulation
>>8126653I can finally run SNES games accurately like any phone can do all for the paltry sum of $300, woah...
after watching a video on how to setup the top 300 dos pack from internet archive for ao486, im getting this for sure with a 500gb microsd. I think it should be enough up until saturn and ps1 comes. shit is perfect. dont have to fuck with anything, the vhd file is already made and its literally as easy as loading a core and playing.
>>8126956It's not entirely true it's perfect though. I think people sell it too much as this flawless device when it's still got a few years to go.I've already had like 3 instances where games have been fucked up and conveniently fixes were on the way but not in the release builds so I had to compile myself or manually grab. That top 300 DOS pack also has like ~20 games with issues
>>8126869>>8126903Saying that a logic simulation is equivalent to emulation is like saying a tranny is equivalent to woman.I'll guess your pc can't handle a real woman, or only with 6-8 frames. The only thing that it can handle is a cut down and abstract version of a woman. But I don't think you will ever know the difference, maybe it to academic for zoomers and room temp IQ people :^)Have fun with your ARM SoC's and bloated X86 platforms.
>>8127014I knew it, no proof in years and hundreds of useless threads
>>8127079>I knew itYeah, I knew it to that you're either under aged or you have no idea about what you are talking about.Don't know if it's due to stupidity or greenness.But hey, what do I expect ... a brainlet to open a link or even more ... something like a book?!Here is the proof you faggot -> https://github.com/aappleby/MetroBoyIf it's too complicated for you, then you should stick to your tranny romance and be happy.
>>8126653>GateBoyWhy the fuck would you use this...
>>8127105"GateBoy runs at around 6 to 8 frames per second in "fast mode" on a modern 4-ish ghz processor. That's quite horrible compared to an emulator, but pretty impressive for something that's simulating a few billion gates per second on a single core."Here if it's too much text for you to process
Left To Right: Real Genesis, Pi 3B+ with "1" run-ahead, Pi without run-ahead, MiSTer this is enough pproof for me
>>8127014>is like saying a tranny is equivalent to womanIt's not. It's more like jerking off vs. fucking. You can jerk off to any girl (or guy, if you're into that) for free (emulation) or you can fuck the ones you spend money on (the carts you own).
>>8127113Imagine the jitter on the Pi...
>>8126624>>8126653Thanks for the replies, very helpful.FPGA gaming sounds cool and all, but whether or not it lives up to all the promises of high accuracy and low latency obviously depends on how well-made the cores are and whether or not the hardware they run on can cut the mustard. I don't care that much about accuracy so long as the games run but I see it's importance for preservationists and homebrew developers.There might also be situations/setups where the differences aren't as important; PC emulators feel pretty damn responsive when I'm using the VGA CRT and there are definitely games where reaction speed isn't super important.I'm pretty sold on the concept, but I'm not surprised that there are people who write FPGA consoles as placebo shit.
>>8127113Where is the video? also runahead doesn't reduce the input lag, it works like rollback in fighting games, so this is flawed.And use a fucking pc
>>8127126To be fair ... I can only recommend you getting into MiSTer if it's worth for you.
>>8127120If emulating is masturbation, and playing the games on original hardware with dedicated (usually original, but repros might count too) cartridges and discs having actual sex, then where do flashcarts and ODEs fall on?
>>8127154>I can only recommend getting into the MiSTer if it's worth it for youMaybe.Quick response time is obviously good to have in fast-paced action games and such, though I'll definitely use the PC emulator + CRT setup some more to actually determine how much I need one.Retroarch has some neat features and I haven't run into any runahead-related bugs yet, but I personally prefer standalones as they generally have better UIs and never do the Retropad nonsense.>>8127130What kinda problems have you been having with runahead?
Input lag is a myth. You just suck. You’re also a faggot.
I really can't afford a mister and can't justify it when I could buy original hardware and flashcarts for cheaper and get the most accuracy possible I understand it's a work in progress but I dunno if it's a train I want on. A maxed out mister + retro style USB controllers is obscene for what you get at this current time
>>8127618>What kinda problems have you been having with runahead?I mean that input latency test, it shows that runahead reduce input latency, when that is not true by definition
This board reeks of poor South Americans
>>8128195Defending your overpriced meme emulator?The memulator.
>>8128202Go climb back into your tree Juan
This diagram and image is from Neo Geo core developer Furrtek and it explains a lot about MiSTer. Of course, even with that, the MiSTer is superior to software emulators (because there are a lot of software emulators which don't care about accuracy, also to a latency the MiSTer is also an absolute winner). I think in the software emulation world only Near built a perfect and an accurate emulator for the SNES, which was also reference for the MiSTer SNES core. An Accurate emulator requires a lot of power and that's why to run bsnes on the Rasperry Pi is near impossible (https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2011/08/accuracy-takes-power-one-mans-3ghz-quest-to-build-a-perfect-snes-emulator/)
>>8128212So I was right. Buyer's remorse kicking in?!
its comfy. when will wrestlmania arcade come out? i get a warm and fuzzy feeling whenever i use it.
For me if you like retro games you would want accuracy above all else so saying how it does not matter or shouldn't is cope. The only other better option is having the actual hardware, literally nothing else is similar and its great to see how this hardware is no better or worse than the real thing as it should be. just sayin. i will get one soon.
i dont understand the hate this thing gets, if you dont like it you dont have to buy it you dont have to follow it so why care. shit is chump change as far as electronics goes.
>>8128439www.kleenex.com you fucking baby.
>>8127182it's substantially equivalent you fucking mong
>>8128432>i dont understand the hate this thing gets, if you dont like it you dont have to buy it you dont have to follow it so why care. shit is chump change as far as electronics goes.Seems rational, but:>stop liking what I don't like
>>8126653>>8126098>instead of enjoying a story intricately woven with words as it is, I'll focus on enjoying the smell and sensation of dead wood in my hands insteadyou are a just bunch of pretentious hipsters that never cared about the games themselves
What does this do better than a Raspberry Pi?
>>8129050It gets you gamer credzz
>>8129050It's the closest thing to using real hardware without having real hardware. But the problem is it's only compatible with earlier consoles which have already had highly-accurate software emulators for 20 years.
>>8128984>Y-y-y-you are a just bunch of pretentious hipsters!>You never cared about the games themselves!Okay Mr. Gatekeeper thanks for your assessment.
>>8129248>telling people hung up on hardware that isn't even original, but a poor approximation to just enjoy the games is "gatekeeping"
What if I spread the rumor that Field-Programmable Gate Arrays died after an average of 5 years, which is increase every time you re-program them because of electron entropy? You think people would buy that?
>>8129261Nice try but people already know about Gategrease™
>>8129256What's wrong about spending some extra money for a better experience for games like Street Fighter Alpha 2 instead of chasing the "perfect" settings in an emulator where frame skip, lag and jitter is minimized for the given hardware?
>>8129261Yeah these mister devices are ready for the grave in a few years
>>8129063This was the part that kills it for me. The only thing I was interested in was the GBA core since original hardware is a pain in the ass to get good video output and it's not even 100% cycle accurate right now? I'll just boot the emulator for approximations.I'll wait until it works in 2025, I'm not throwing money down on some early access beta meme.And the thing is if you have money for this shit, you have more than enough money to buy a real console. I'm enjoying my PS1 this weekend. The console is $30 and you can burn discs for dirt cheap. But if you can wait x months I guess you can enjoy the PS1 core whenever the fuck it's ready.
Just another quick reminder that shit posters in MiSTer threads are borderline zoomers.
>>8126098>Are there any functional advantages to using the official USB daughterboard or will I be fine just plugging a splitter or powered hub into the DE10 Nano's USB OTG port?It will work fine, but you run the risk of damage to the ports on the DE10.>How much worse will the cores that don't require an SDRAM module run if you don't have one installed?Most cores run on the 32mb ram, a few Neo Geo games need the 128mb and 5th gen will need that much if not more.>Will the Sega Saturn core be able to surpass software emulators in terms of accuracy/compatibility or will it just be an passable recreation but with the benefit of less latency?

Not holding my breath until I see some footage of heavier 3D games like Daytona, Virtual On or Powerslave though, I hear that the DE10-Nano might not be on that level.Yes, but it depends on the skill of whoever develops the core.>Is the old MIST 1.4 still a worthwhile option if you just looking to play 8 and 16-bit systems but want something cheaper and more intergrated than the MiSTer?Yes, but the DE10 is worth it just to make coomlectors and emufags seethe.
>>8129741>5th gen will need that much if not more.I was under the impression that Neo Geo needed that much because the game roms themselves were loaded into the RAM, which is important for loading because obviously those were solid state carts. While something like the PS1 streams everything from the CD drive at a much slower speed, so there's a lot more leeway.
Was going to get this but saw that raspberry pi was cheaper. You guys getting scammed lol.
>>8129505I doubt they will subsidize or have the hardware in stock forever. I have a strange feeling once Saturn and PS1 core finally comes out, which the PS1 is moving pretty fast compared to other cores, this shit is going to blow up and it's going to become much more difficult to get your hands on it, much less the 3rd party stuff they have for the mister, but more so the de10 board itself, it just continues to increase in price and I do see it becoming scarce just like other sought after electronics. So right now would be the best time to buy it. >And the thing is if you have money for this shit, you have more than enough money to buy a real console.This is not true for me, I don't have the money to buy the real thing. I did not have enough money to buy the misterfpga either outright, spent money here and there to buy up the parts. The de-10 nano board was the hard part, and also the memory was pricey, and just all around everything other, but its still a lot cheaper than buying a sega cd or a turbografx 16. I'm just waiting for the midway arcades and ps1 for now.
This is the true price of the mister fpga, at least what it cost me with shipping and taxes and trying not to use total junk.DE10-Nano Kit $211.34, includes the shipping direct from the maker.MiSTer Case Acrylic - Shadow Clear $35.96DC Jumper $7.50 Bluetooth Adapter × 1 $7.50MiSTer FPGA 7 Port USB HUB V2.1 Black w/ Bridge Board and Power Splitter Cable - BLACK PCB $49.97SDRAM XSD v2.5 128MB for MiSTer FPGA DE10-NANO - BLACK PCB $54.00SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS EVO Select 256GB - $35.00Mister FPGA Micro USB Bridge Black PCB - $10.94StarTech.com Wireless USB WiFi Adapter Dual Band AC600 Wireless Dongle $22.07Seeed Studio Switching Power Supply for Jetson Nano 5VDC 4A DC Jack $16.998Bitdo M30 2.4G Wireless $25Copper Heatsink $10Loctite - $5Anodized colored buttons - $15
>>8127008It’s not “perfect enough” and retarded fanboys like you who refuse to criticize the laziness of the misterdevs will keep it from ever being as accurate as true enthusiasts want it to be. Some of the popular cores are literally just reworks of MAME.
If no one told any of you that emulators weren't accurate, you'd never notice it yourselves.
What I like about the mister is the ezness of loading vhd operating systems but at the same time using exact hardware, that's fucking cool as hell, forget about the video games, its the mememories of old software, like undersea adventure on windows 3.1 or even older operating systems. im filling up the 256gb right now of top 300, upgraded from 128gb, its fully loaded right now. feels good. okay ill catch you poorfags later. its really not that expensive to experience GREATNESS.
>>8130475emus: play all the games and you won't notice the differencereal console (with flashcart because you're not a paypig): 100% accuracy MiSTER: supposedly more accurate than emulators but a lot of "cores" are unfinished so you'll run into glitches that you'd never see on emulators. Costs over $100 and obviously is bad for playing games at the moment, might be of interest to hobbyists who decap old chips and want to program it themselves.
>>8130475The inescapable truth
>>8130475Wait what !? ZSNES was a lie all along?!And the ear-piercing unfiltered sound of all the Yamaha YM2612 emulations don't match the original console?Yeah, someone who don't grew up with those games would never notice the unfiltered steel drums in street fighter 2 or the variable input lag of emulation in time critical games.Even worse the PS4 Street Fighter 30th Anniversary collection have the same sound issues.
>>8130371>no gate greaseNGMI
>>8130536>Even worse the PS4 Street Fighter 30th Anniversary collection have the same sound issues.That's why you don't buy rereleases, they're just roms on a shitty emulator that will never be updated.
>>8130536Wow it's almost like comparing anything early in its development reveals problems.Zsnes isn't a comparable example to give when everyone these days is either using some version of snes9x or beetle.
>>8130540>no gate greaseBut anodized colored buttons for $15 in an acrylic case ...baka
>>8130049B-but muh input lag! Muh accuracy! lmao
>>8130508The only issues I've heard for a MiSTer core were for Neo Geo and CPS1, and that was because the devs themselves mentioned themThe cores are at least on the same level of "don't notice the difference" that you're putting emulation on, based on personal experience with the one I've hooked up to a PVMeme
>>8130508>>8130475>>8130536>>8130543>>8130558(MiSTer is an emulator too)
>>8130543>Wow it's almost like comparing anything early in its development reveals problems.Isn't this happening rn to the MiSTer even if they make great progress in much shorter time while archiving already in nearly most cases cycle accuracy with rather minor bugs?
RPi fags, cope because your shitty linux board will never be accurate and will always have a fuck ton of input lag.
>>8130558>>8130049Imagine not knowing what the difference is between an Arm SoC and an FPGA.But hey there is no /vrg/ so what did I expect.
>>8130571You're right. It will catch up eventually.>>8130574Sorry, what's input lag? Is that something someone told you about or something you personally noticed? Just trying to see if this is a valid criticism or you just bring pretentious.
seriously if you have to emulate why even use a raspberry pi to do it, fucking trash, the moment i see anyone using one when there are countless better options it i lose total respect for them, especially when its a new company trying to demo their tech and they use that crap. its not dependable, you can spend the same amount of money on a jetson nano or something and getter better experience. fuck raspberry pi, the most cucked hardware that exists.
>>8130595So beyond having a bitch fit, do you have any actual examples of why rpi are so terrible?
>>8130583It's a real thing, I don't know the exact numbers but I do feel it with games I really know. It's not just about the latency though, its the fact that I don't have to play with it or adjust it to get it right. I should not be able to know the difference and with emulation its a mixed bag, depends on the game really and its that simple fact alone where i just dont want to touch it, its hard for me to even play retro games, i want the experience to be as easy as possible. I dont get how raspberry pi is even still a thing, shit is trash though and through.
What a fucking scam LMFAO
>>8130601Try running bsnes on your pi an you will see :^)
>>8130582>Imagine not knowing what the difference is between an Arm SoC and an FPGA.it still doesn't change anything.>>8130595I mean if you can't flash a micro SD card, that sounds like a personal problem.
>>8130609Why would I run bsnes when 9x runs fine?It's simply unnecessary. The differences between real hardware and a modern pi4 are negligible to human senses. You can't even detect the differences.
>>8130601I had one that I tossed against the wall. Ive actually used it for octoprint and then as a mirror using moonlight to broadcast my downstairs computer to the one in my bedroom using nvidia geforce program and that shit could not be trusted for anything, it was constantly crashing. Its not for in depth gaming I can tell you that much. I should not have to fuck with it after continuous use. With the mister its instant and less in the way for things to fuck up, people say its the opposite but its not, mister has a smaller install, just drag and drop after you get ftp enabled and samba file renamed, and then just dump files and load core/game after update_all.
>>8130614>it still doesn't change anything.Ask a bitcoin miners how much of a difference it makes when things can be processed in parallel.But hey if you want to invest some time and tweak bsnes on your 500W gayming pc to get a somehow comparable experience to just push some sprites around then go for it and even then it's not that "muh 100% accuracy". Retro arch's wiki is full of edge cases where the PC architecture hits its limits.
>>8130620Like I said it depends on the game some are really noticeable, but its bits and pieces and at teh end of the day it all adds up where you have a bag filled with improvements, especially with sound, people talk about latency but sound also was one of the biggest shockers. I think the video above touches on it and its true. But better is objective, its really more authentic or genuine. its not more and its not less.
>>8130620bsnes is the on emulator that I have some respect for because It's trying to be spot on, even in weird edge cases. But the drawback is that you need a rather beefy PC to keep up with the emulators demand.
I would like one but I spent money rather recently on building a new pc.
>>8130549>>8130540It replaces the shitty 3d printed ones. Dont worry though I will resell to some normie for 5x its price should it ever get that high, just look at what happened to the jetson xavier, its in the 1500 range now, when ps1 saturn core come out thats it, they will not be able to keep up with demand. there's no point saving money right now its getting only less. you have literally nothing to lose owning one.
>>8131047I own one, but I wouldn't pay 15$ just for cosmetics :^)
>>8131071it'll look so much better though and uniform, i picked hard black anodize to match the cuts on the acrylic. next is that hdmi cable itself where its angled. i might upgrade the fan, but not with noctua, fuck their colors lol. i love burning money
>>8131089I liked what one of the anon did. He used a mini itx case for a cleaner setup, so the mister don't look like it's getting gangbanged by cables from all sides.
How much space is needed for everything thats available right now?
>>8131213A TB or so? But how many CD games are you really going to play?
>>8131283It would just be nice to have them all in one location and be capable of running it. I definitely want the 300 dos games and I think thats 80GB alone, with mega cd im guessing 500GB should be enough. I wonder how many gbs it takes for all usa playstation 1 games.
Speaking of the saturn core, update from srg 320https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWU0bri9CW4&t=2shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFxgvZ_H1vU ( better mute for this one )Nice progress right ? Can't believe he has come so far in less than 7 month ( though he was already working on it before opening his patreon in february, still the progress is incredible )
>>8130070>This is not true for me, I don't have the money to buy the real thing. I did not have enough money to buy the misterfpga either outright>doesnt have money for the shit>saying it's not true for youI said if you can afford one you can afford the other and you think that statement is somehow not true because you can't afford either. Fucking lmao, guess they stopped teaching reading comprehension in American public schools
>>8131659That's because you are assuming. I actually do own a Mister FPGA, but I don't own the numerous consoles that I use to play them because they would cost a small fortune and I don't have that kind of money to spend on peripherals for them, the games, fuck that. Lets get real here, you can play these games on your phone.
>>8131604Jesus those Rayman sounds startled the fuck out of me. Good shit tho
>>8130559There’s issues from serious nephew enthusiasts that were posted in 2019 on the GitHub that have yet to be touched… why go through the time to show issues of the deva will just ignore you and ask for praise?

>>8130475Emulators will always have input lag, any lag in old 2D games suck ass.
>>8132249Easy there anon.
Looks like epilogue is planning for their usb-c cartridge readers to work as mass storage devices in a future firmware updates, in which case they should be easily compatible with mister or Raspberry Pi's when that happens. This kills the Analogue merchant.
>>8130371well, i paid (in AUD):- DE10 nano from Mouser - $170 (old pricing, i admit)- micro-USB hub from aliexpress $7- salvaged HDMI-to-VGA adapter for best 15kHz output $0-64GB microSD $20I did redesign and print myself a case though, but i would classify a 3D printer as a tool and i note you didn't list screwdrivers or a anything.
>>8131680Nah you had to save up and scrape money for this shit instead of outright buying it. I 100% was not talking about you when I mentioned people who could afford it. Stop shoehorning yourself in.
>>8134823That's be really cool.
>>8134153with VRR and runahead it's really not that big of a difference any more
>>8134823Nice! With the GB Operator it would cover GB, GBC, and GBA with one one device. SNES, NES.. Genesis.. wonder what else would be worth making a cartridge adapter for.
>>8135129> I 100% was not talking about you when I mentioned people who could afford it. You are getting mixed up with being able to afford something and just budgeting, just because people who budget doesn't mean they can't afford it outright, again you are assuming. You've made an idiot out of yourself numerous times now, fuck off.
>>8135129you are that same guy here bitching about people having enough money to buy this time and time again. get a life, people can spend their money however way they want to.
>>8135616rasberry pi is cheaper
>>8134053>has limited functionalityHow would you know you don't have one. Tell me how it has limited functionality, you can't just say that shit and not list it specifically, tell me. You're literally looking for the problems and ignoring 90 percent of what people care about, playing the game without having to fuck with it. And the other anon is correct, what you said is not an argument, its stupid to buy consoles now even if you really have the money because mister is the next best thing, even if you do have money to blow on consoles. Man you guys are really grasping at straws. I will be here laughing when PS1 and Saturn core comes out and then they magically somehow come out with N64 core with some upgades.
>>8136139I like Riggel, but he says uses a hdmi to av converter on his PC to CRT

>>8126869FPGAs are built with one use in mind - to faithfully mimic everything else. Normal computers aren't. Why the chips aren't on every new motherboard, I don't know.
>>8134823Fingers crossed. I hate Analogue retards with a passion.
>>8126869One major issue is audio-video sync. On a pc the sound and graphics hardware are separate devices, but emulation requires the sound and video to be in perfect sync, this is basically impossible to solve perfectly and results in either frame skipping, or some kind of audio rate scaling causing sound quality issues and excessive audio latency. Audio video sync is perfect on FPGA, and the sound has latency.Most software emulators are horrifically inaccurate. And the accurate emulators require a very fast cpu. This is because to accurately emulate a system, you must advance each emulated component cycle by cycle, but modern cpus are terrible at doing this, an accurate emulator needs to jump between each emulated component tens of millions of times per second, completely destroying the branch prediction and blowing out the L1 cache. A high end PC can just about do this, but your raspberry pie is certainly not capable.

>>8139930>Where is the MiSTer portable?what do you think the analogue is?
imagine disliking this
