  1. Just hold the boards by the edges whenever you can and try not to touch the components if you can help it and you'll be fine.
  2. Well I was kind of hoping you'd all put me off buying another board 'just in case' but far from it. Now to find some way of convincing the missus it's a good idea.
  3. Have any of you folks bought or considered buying a second DE10-Nano just to keep as a spare but not use in case your existing one fails. On one hand it could be a complete waste of £260 that I could really do without spending, particularly with things as they are at the moment. But like all insurance it could be the best money I’ve ever spent. They’re only going up in price generally, but at some point in time Terasic will stop making them and unless there’s already an affordable alternative board that the community has moved over to which seems unlikely, then they’ll almost certainly rocket in price. That’s if you can get one at all of course. It’s hard to know what to do, but the MiSTer has quickly become my favourite gaming ‘thing’ and what I’d rescue from a burning building straight after my missus and the dog.
  4. Massive thanks to @Colonel Panic and @Tomdominer for their advice yesterday regarding editing the downloader.ini file. Been having a play about with it this morning and after a shaky start where all my filters got deleted, I did the sensible thing and read up on what I was doing and have got everything working perfectly with a super clean installation. Well pleased with it. Cheers guys.
  5. Cheers guys. That looks like a good solution after all then. Not exactly what I'd envisaged but when I sit down to play a game it'll give me the experience I'm looking for. I'll have a play later. Much appreciated.
  6. Ah right okay, maybe not the solution for me then. One of the things I love the most about MiSTer is watching update_all do it's job and seeing new Arcade cores appear and download.
  7. Yeah I'd considered that. Does that stop new cores from being downloaded unless you add them into the configuration?
  8. Does anyone know of a way to hide cores from the main menu? I want to keep getting new ones and retain and keep updating all of the existing ones but it would sooth my mild OCD if I could only see the cores that I'm interested in at any given time.
  9. Well nothing to report from the TV shops other than blank looks unfortunately. eBay and Facebook marketplace it is.
  10. Mainly just to keep dust out and so it's a bit more robust I suppose if you're picking it up and moving it about.
  11. That and eBay are going to be my next port of call if the local shops prove unfruitful. I'm sure I'm going to be disappointed but I just can't get it out of my head that they might have a lovely boxed one that they've never done anything with, dusty and hidden away at the back of the storeroom.
  12. I’m going out this afternoon on a hunt for a decent CRT. There are at least a couple of small independent TV / TV Repair / Aerial installation places within the local vicinity and in my head their store rooms have got at least a couple of nice brand new and boxed 21” Sony televisions just waiting to be discovered. I’ve got absolutely no idea where I’ll actually keep it if I do get one but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. Wish me luck!
  13. Like I mentioned above you’ll end up paying around £55. They send via FedEx and declare everything at correct value. Best £275 you’ll ever spend
  14. I bought mine direct about 3 months ago and it cost me £210 plus £55 import costs. If you can at all afford the little bit extra it costs then it's a no brainer. Having had one now I'd pay whatever I could afford if I needed to replace it.
  15. Oh for sure. I know it’s a massive glaring hole for me. I’m hoping that when I have look at Amazon Comics tomorrow they’ll see me right with the digital editions being on sale.
