A friend of mine liked my little PC Engine Pocket MiSTer, and wanted one with a Genesis theme. I'm putting one together for him. Panels just arrived:
SM570450-1 <-- That's the speakerGot a nice little speaker that I'm going to play around with in FreeDOS on my PC, too, just to see if the PC Speaker emulation in ao486 is any good.
My case is fairly "large", so I planned to run both to the rear panel, and all the USB back, under, and to the front panel (since the cables are so long). I'm leaning toward putting the mister sideways in the case, but I'm waiting to see how long the vga cable I ordered actually is.I wish the NIC and HDMI were on the same side of the DE10 board. I haven't decided which way to put the top panel because of that. Either way there's a big cable sticking out of the "front"-facing side of the device.

That is real slick.
Start selling your creations. I’m sure a lot of people would buy.Thanks!
I'm having a ton of fun building these. I need to come up with a full case enclosure that's small like these, but protects all the pins and traces internally. I don't think the rail-style case like my larger MiSTer will work at this size, so I'll have to think of something else. I think a bit of creativity with thicker aluminum stock, and milled sections would allow for some counter-sunk holes for side panels to screw directly into the top and bottom. I'm just not sure if I can get the sides tapped for me or not. That's not something that I can't do accurately with my current set of tools at home. (no drill press or mill) I'd like to build these so they look almost like a 1990s aluminum external modem (but with cooler front panels) I'll have to give it a whirl once I wrap up a few of my other projects.
What would be really cool, would be to design a new PCB with the IO in the right places, and included on the main board. Unfortunately I've only done (a ton of) analog synthesizer audio-rate PCBs. I've never done anything digital with high clocks, so I have no experience designing that kind of board. The addon boards look simple enough, (quite easy actually) but redesigning the actual DE10 board is beyond my current skills I think. Memory trace lengths need the matching and zig-zaggery for example. Never worked with that sort of thing.
Maybe just a new IO board that puts all the USB on one side, then put the main board against the back panel for HDMI, then run an ethernet extension to the back or something might work.
On another note, I was very impressed that the Super Fami logo came out so well. I used a low-ish resolution bitmap. Due to the small size of the panel it came out nice and smooth. The UV printing handled the colors quite nicely too. It actually looks a bit better in person as opposed to the photo.

Did you try and up the volume within the core itself?Does anyone else think audio for SNES core isn't quite right? Not sure if there are known issues with it or any tweaks. I noticed it mostly when playing Zelda LTTP. I have the cartridge version too and picking up rupies on Mister doesn't sound right in comparison.
For those that don't follow the news, it's been announced that FPGAzumSpass has started work on the PSX Core for MiSTer.
I just got a PSX on eBay for $20 and bought and installed the XStation. Now, I'm waiting on the HDretrovision cable to come in to test the RGB/Component out. It'll be nice to do side by sides with the MiSTer.Very nice!
I knew it was in the pipeline, but no details about it.
Looking forward to Symphony of the Night on the MiSTer instead of some of the emulators I've played it on.
Yea, my current suggestion is to buy Sandisk, and just plan to swap the card out once in awhile. Also, make a back up on a HDD.Looks like a new updater script was released.
Looking at the roadmap I see this "Configurable custom download filters" - I hope this means be able to choose which cores to download. I feel bad for my poor SD card and all the re-writes for redownloading updated cores I will never use. I'd like to tell it which cores to download and that's it.
Can't seem to figure out how to share the link correctly. HAHAHA! Anyway, its showing the first PSX game running off of SD Card for the upcoming core. It's RIDDDDDDGE Racer!
I love the vintage 3D. It's offputting at first, but you do get used to it again. There's a charm to quite a few of them.Nice! I can think of a few games that I'd love to play using this. Mainly 2D ones. As much as I LOVE vintage games, vintage graphics, etc. this era of 2D game is really hard for me to look at. Mario 64, Zelda OoT / MM, and MK 64 are pretty much it.
It'll be nice to play Symphony of the Night on the MiSTer though!
