Subject: Input Latency
I’m currently sourcing parts to do my first build. My main interest is better input latency than what software emulators provide. I own Raphnet adapters as well as a BlissBox 4-Play. Are the snac adapters any better than these two options I already have? Also is the Blisster board redundant since I already own a BlissBox device? The 4-Play hub connects over USB so I imagine it’s supported?
Subject: N00b question
Still setting up my system so please bear with me :)
I've seen people using their 8bitdo controllers with MiSTer, but I was wondering, will any BT adapter do or do I have to buy their own adapter?
Also, what about the 2.4 Sega-style one (got one with my MegaSg)?

Subject: LED blinking codes?
Just booted my unit and I noticed for the first time that Power and User LEDs are blinking slowly. Perhaps it was always like that, but I just noticed. Is there somewhere an explanation of what the different blinking codes mean?

Subject: Composite Out in 2021?
It's been two years since this was asked. What's the best way/ product to get composite out of the Mister? Yes, component is awesome, but my component TV is just too big and heavy to move around!! Just got my Mister yesterday! So awesome! Thanks for your help.
Subject: Another n00b question...
Trying to pair my Nes30 pro with my TP-Link BT adapter. All I get from running the script and selecting the controller is:
Got device: E4:17:D8:04:6E:7D Pairing... /media/fat/Scripts/bluetooth_pair.sh: line 129: pair-agent: command not found Add to trust list... Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: Method "DefaultAdapter" with signature "" on interface "org.bluez.Manager" doesn't exist Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownObject: Method "SetProperty" with signature "sv" on interface "org.bluez.Device" doesn't exist Connecting... Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownObject: Method "Connect" with signature "" on interface "org.bluez.Input" doesn't exist Done. /media/fat/Scripts#
Any ideas? Does this mean it's an incompatible adapter?

Subject: Do not waste your money or time on the RSK202/1 case.
A month or so back, I decided to purchase the RSK202/1 after /u/SamuraiOfGaming's glowing review of it. I liked the way it looked, and thought that $100 was a pretty good price for it. Boy, was I wrong.
You might be wondering if it's an airflow issue or something, but I can't even tell you that. I can't get the thing assembled. The instructions require you to superglue metal hex nuts to plastic plates, which is simply a ridiculous thing to expect for a $100 case. Not only do the nuts just not stick to the case mere minutes after being glued, the suggestion of using a toothpick to guide the nuts to line up with the holes isn't feasible: it's still very possible for the nuts to be off-center. Furthermore, I suspect that the holes on my case weren't drilled big enough for the screws to fit, although maybe it was the glue drying up and shrinking the hole after trying to get this thing to work.
Furthermore, some of the parts for the buttons were shipped broken, but I can't even tell you if that's a big deal or not, as, again, I can't even get this thing assembled.
On top of all of this, RnSK has zero customer support whatsoever. I have attempted to contact Cherry Kai via both the Contact Us form on his website and his email listed on PayPal, and have gotten zero response. I really don't know why /u/SamuraiOfGaming has a direct line to this guy yet I can't even figure out if he's alive or not. I probably wouldn't have written this post if I'd at least gotten in contact with Cherry Kai, but I can't even get that, so here we are.
RnSK's FAQ states:
Q: Why is this a kit and not fully built?A: Simply and frankly, reduced cost to you, and reduced time to get it to you. As there is no "factory" here for fabrication and assembly, the cost to do it that way, potential shipping damage coverage, "dimensional weight" rules would have simply made it more expensive targeted for people. Many revisions, supplier switches, etc went into keeping the Signature Series pricing where it is.
Perhaps RnSK should consider that simply getting something out as cheap as possible isn't necessarily the highest priority, and that designing a case to have a reasonable, easy-to-follow assembly process is worth an increased price point.

Subject: Save Games in GBA 2 Player Core
I am wondering if there is a way to import a save file into the GBA 2 Player Core that would allow it to be used by both "systems" running at the same time. Specifically, I was looking to play Megaman Battle Network 6 link battles with a save file that has everything unlocked. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Subject: updateall script issues?
I noticed when I run the updateall script that it doesn't download the BIOS when its at the BIOS getter. One of the messages I saw was something about a possible zip bomb? It's for all BIOS files except AO486 core
Subject: Inquiry about an addon supplier listed.
Hi folks, I wanted to ask if any of you have experience with zerohimself. For the most part, I wanted to ask if in general the seller is personally ok or if he really is just super busy. I don't want to directly tag him here at the moment yet. Reason I ask is that I see via searches online that this seems to be a reputable seller. While I did exchange a few emails and the seller seems initially responsive, I've not yet received my order and newer responses has somewhat lacking. It seems either the seller is overwhelmed with a recent surge in activity, or something else is up. It's been a few weeks and I do understand that the kits are tested and what not, however I am getting a little anxious after a relatively long while. I am not expecting an answer immediately from seller, but was hoping I'd get some additional feedback after a few days.
I do hope this type of post is allowed here. If not, please feel free to delete and let me know. :)

Subject: New to fpga
So i got a few questions that i hope some people can answer. I recently found out about what the Mister is. I mostly play on old original retro hardware and i've heard that this little box can emulate everything on a hardware level without any lag.
My questions are will i need multiple fpga's to emulate different consoles? Is their a button i press to choose between consoles? Can i run original hardware with it like say snes controller/genesis controller? Will it also be able to play carts directly? Are their addon's for that? Is it difficult to assemble? What would the output be would it output the original hardware resolution 240p and then would i need to use my upscaler like my retro 5x? Can it natively output at upscaled resolutions?
I love playing on the original hardware but i'm quickly running out of real estate under my t.v. If i can have an accurate all in one solution i'm all for it. If anyone has links to reputable sources to source the material much appreciated. On the off chance i can't use oem console controllers anyone know of any comparable controllers, by comparable i mean it has to feel like oem plastic none of that cheapo chinesium feels like sandpaper stuff.
