    Another pre-release beta core for you to try. I'm not going to able to test this one for a few days so I'll be relying on you guys to tell me how it is! Seems to be a new shmup core every week at the moment.


    R-Type for the M72 core. Download the various parts needed from here. I'm assuming a manual install will be required.

    I must be dumb - can't get this working <_<

    Probably doing something similar to Klatrymadon but I'm pretty sure I've downloaded the raw files and put them in the right places:

    R-Type (Japan).mra and R-Type (World).mra in /media/fat/_Arcade/

    M72_xx.rbf in /media/fat/_Arcade/cores/)

    Then ran update_all - it downloaded rtype.zip to /media/fat/games/mame/

    ..just switches back to OSD when I try to run one of them.


    EDIT - I was being an idiot. Don't worry I downloaded them again and it worked :doh:

    anyway, R-Type.. woo hoo!

    I decided to mount mine in the broadband adaptor port for easy access. Took a little internal case cutting so the wires weren't getting pinched by the controller port assembly.




    Quick q.. can you put the port covers back on over these mods? (probably not over the SD2SP2 I guess)

    To those that have been already - How were the shows without Keith?

    Saturday's show was immense.. pretty much straight away everyone was jumping, went full on moshpit for some heavier tracks. Maxim ruled the crowd throughout, he was awesome and some nice crowd interaction from Liam as well. Some really heartfelt and tastefully done tributes to Keith, including a great instrumental version of firestarter with an laser animated Keith dance. Was easily one of the best live performances I've been to, not sure I've ever come away so sweaty :D

    Brixton Academy still rules, so do the Prodigy

    I'm going to see them tomorrow at the O2 Academy in Birmingham. Taking my other half who isn't exactly what you'd call a fan. I'm not convinced she knows what she's letting herself in for.

    I'm on my way to Brixton right now to see them.. it's going to be mental I know it :omg:

    So what you really mean is you had to update your USB hub? The IO board is what you’d normally find a VGA port on.


    Good call either way. I’m on the old one (despite just being over a year old). Is this new one powered by that USB port? I’m going to have to change my power cable splitter if so.


    misterfpga.co.uk don’t seem to be soldering any with nine ports yet.

    Yes that's what I really meant..  doh. :rolleyes:

    USB hub not IO board

    Also does it need the right sort of hub? This image is on the page:





    Yes it needs the new one on the left.. I failed to check this and therefore needed to upgrade my old version IO board USB hub.

    The hubs come with the necessary power and bridge connectors, at least mine did.

    Finally found the spare 1 minute required to get Mr Fusion to expand.

    My MiSTer currently looks like this..



    Need to pick up an OTG hub and I’m done.. well, other than my plans for a custom case. 

    Edit: decided to just go with the official powered hub from OzMisterMods.

    If you haven't bought the hub yet I have my old one that I could sell for cheaps :eyebrows:

    Ooh that’s nice. What’s the overall quality like? Would you mind sharing a link to the one you bought? 

    It's this one:


    I have to say it's really good quality, very well designed and nice and sturdy. Comes with all screws and spacers you need, even a screwdriver lol

    Careful though I needed to change my IO board USB hub to a new version as my old one didn't fit the case..
