So if we wanted to plug in any USB devices (keyboard, wifi), we would have to use a separately powered USB hub, is that correct?
I just updated my MiSTer, and can confirm that the ini settings above are no longer needed, 2 player gamepad should now work out of the box (after running the MiSTer update script).First draft of the gamepad mode page, https://irkenlabs.com/jamma-expander/operation-gamepad
Feedback & corrections from MiSTer gurus would be most welcome.
Almost forgot, to get 2 player to work (today) you need this in your MiSTer.ini
; Disable merging input devices. Use if only player 1 works.
; Leave no_merge_pid empty to apply this to all devices with the same VID.
This is a temporary thing, and will no longer be needed when the next release of MiSTer is released - it's already in the code:
All my cabs have ethernet cable, cause you just don't know when you will need that connectionI'll probably just run an Ethernet cable into the rear of the cab. Considering how often mister is updated this is a relevant question. Another idea might be to run a usb splitter and run your powered usb hub through the rear of the cab.
There is no analog video out of the DE10-nano, you can buy an expansion board that use resistors instead of a proper DAC, and that approach is limited to 18 bits of color.
You all needed minus the de10 nano and ram
HDMI - this one has an on-board HDMI->VGA and HDMI->AUDIO DAC, instead of depending on GPIO pins. This is to get the best quality, and also keep things simple
It's a typo on the PCB markings, I added this on the FAQ page https://irkenlabs.com/jamma-expander/faqDoes someone have spare JST VLP-02V-1 connectors? These seem to be sold out everywhere and JST has a lead time of like a year, lol. I think I have the pins for when I was making some JVS power harnesses.
I'll be interested to see if this particular cable works. I had a right angled USB adapter on hand (pretty much the same as what you showed before) that I tried, and it wasn't quite what I wanted. I think the down facing right angle should work, but the size of the head + strain relief makes me wonder if it's too tall to fit before bumping into the PCB.I also ordered some other cables to see how fitment is since I want to put the setup in a case
got these to try out
Agree, will test it out, I havent been able to find one with a thinner/smaller profile. If I like it better than the right angle and it doesn't quite fit I will just put slightly taller standoffs maybeI'll be interested to see if this particular cable works.

I considered doing 'adapter' PCB's found on other MiSTer boards instead of cables, but with favored serviceability and logistics over aesthetics. I also have zero clue as to how much noise is radiated by the DE10, so I wanted to keep the area under it clear.
hahahaha....he probably wont.In other news, the FedEx guy will not be pleased tomorrow - all orders packed and ready for shipment. Thanks to all who placed an order this week-end!
