    FPGA Hardware Emulation - The MiST FPGA System

    The Mist is a FPGA computerboard with VGA, analog audio out, 4 USB 2.0 ports, 2 9 pin joystick connectors and an SD card capable of hardware emulating quite a few systems. Running a system is achieved by booting into a specific core which interfaces with the graphics, video, I/O of the Mist system. The SD card contains the core but also the files needed by the core and the games/apps images you want to run. Some cores require the SD card to be in FAT16 others can work with an SD card formatted in FAT32. Some cores are quite picky when it comes to SD cards where others are much more lenient. Cores that work well by my own experience: Amiga (Minimig), C64 (Various), Amstrad CPC, Atari 2600, Atari 8bit (finicky), ZX Spectrum (finicky but when it works it works well), Atari ST (can be finicky to get up and running but when it works it works well and you can use the midi ports on the device like on a real ST great for Cubase), Amstrad CPC and BBC Beeb. Let's check out the video. And I don't even get to show all the various systems that can be emulated. The MSX-core has a lot of potential in this system but suffers from SD-card read errors. For now don't get the MIST for MSX emulation! The MIST has been around for a couple of years now, and there's not too much active development for it anymore. That's because the MIST platform has been ported over to a more enhanced FPGA board that combines the FPGA chip with an ARM CPU which makes much more complex interaction with audio/video and IO and the cores possible. Most of the development has been moved to that new MISTer system. The MISTer system sadly isn't a readily available system like the MIST was, it's based off a FPGA single board system and community driver hardware add-ons that make it into a MISTer. A very desirable system when you're into FPGA emulation but the community driven add-ons and the board are not easily obtained. The add ons are user made and are not mass produced. 😞 The MIST can be bought in various online webshops catering for this sort of things like: http://amigastore.eu/en/318-mist-fpga-computer.html http://lotharek.pl/product.php?pid=96 https://www.dragonbox.de/de/285-mist-fpga-konsolen.html http://amiga.amedia-computer.com/index.php/catalogue/infos/3/9/ACF_MISTMIDIDB9 More information and how to get started: https://github.com/mist-devel/mist-board/wiki/GettingStarted I am not affiliated with any of those stores or the creator of the MIST computer. I bought the system with my own funds and this video is made by me to share my experiences.

  2. I was going to play the Amiga game but that kept on crashing on me so I chose to do the PC version instead which is very similar if not identical. A great R-type/Nemesis/Gradius like shoot'm up for PC and Amiga systems. Very nice smooth scrolling and a wonderful use of the 256 colours of the VGA palette. It spreads around 4 levels (worlds), has a nice weapons upgrade system comparable to that of Konami and Compile shooters. Nice soundtrack and great sound FX using the wonderful Sounblaster and FM synthesis. A two player mode is optional but I was unable to show you that as I didn't have a second player available to me. The game is controlled through either mouse, joystick or keyboard

    Mark Plays... Super Stardust (AGA)(Amiga 1200)

    Super Stardust is among my favourite shmups on the Sony PS3, PSP and PSVita platforms and I learnt that the game actually originated on the Amiga platform. Of course I couldn't help myself and had to try this out as well. This is a video of me booting up the game for the first time ever. The video of me playing the PSP version can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlNoM4nCU_c
  4. Tower 57 is available on PC (Stream, GOG.com), PS4 and the Next Gen Amigas developed by Pixwerk & published by 11 bit studios. It's a retro looking twin stick shooter where cooperation is important and you control a 3 headed task force. You need to complete tasks and and missions. It's a modern take on what old Amiga games used to look like. Chaos Engine from the Bitmap brothers comes to mind, as well as SmashTV. It features an isometric 16-bit pixel graphics style, has wonderful music that goes well with the game. It is best played with a controller that has two analog buttons, two shoulder buttons and triggers as well as four action buttons: ala xbox, xbox360, DualShock Playstation controllers or Logitech rumblepad controllers. In this video I try the game for the first time, it's not my most talkative first impressions video but I was just in awe of the game. Score: 8/10 P.S. They're also working on a Linux version!
  5. These games are though: Gemini Wing, Frenetic and Flying Shark But are they actually any good?
