    Code wise - it's open source.

    Brains wise - there's certainly a lot more people mucking about with FPGA code these days. Most of the cores in MiSTer were ported over from MiST cores written by other people. Jotego certainly puts a hell of a lot of work in, but I think there exists a few people who could do what he does, and have the desire to do so. GitHub has a growing number of VHDL and Verilog projects outside of MiST/MiSTer too, so it's certainly not limited to our little niche interest.

    Is it just me or are the Atari forums back, but missing the FPGA subforum (including MiSTer)?

    It's changed hosters (i'm assuming since the public IPs are from a different ISP now) so maybe refresh dns/browser cache and all that jazz. I guess we just wait and see, just seems odd that only the FPGA section is missing for me.

    tried quad 1s, quad 8s, and my vpns dns server

    I support Sorg on Patreon, and he posted this about 5am local time:

    https://misterfpga.org/

    New forums are there.

    Interesting move, i wonder whats been going on that we haven't been privy too. The entire FPGA subforum seems to of been removed from atariage, seems a little strange to me.

    I'm not sure i like the idea of an entire forum for MiSTer as i liked being able to see all the posts on one page to keep up to date on new stuff happening. It looks like stuff is kind of hidden now because of all the categories/sub-forums. I guess i'll have to play around with the different views to find something i like.

    Edit: this seems to be the closest i can find https://misterfpga.org/search.php?search_id=newposts

    Pezz82 is loading up on user guides in the new forums :thumbup:
    very handy for those of us that havent played with a particular core and want to have a bit of a basic look/play

    a thread on the new forums suggests nothing crazy/silly/horrible ???

    Makes sense to me. It started life in the Atari forums because it was loosely based on MiST, an Atari ST FPGA clone.

    These days ST simulation is probably the least common thing going on. :lol:

    I just find it weird as also the MiST subforum is now missing from Atariage and also the other FPGA clone systems

    MiST is also on the new forums from what I've read :)
    what we really need is for those old AF forum posts to be made read only and dumped into one big searchable forum in the new one. right. there's so much info locked away irt'd be a crying shame to let it disappear :/

    In anticipation of making some IOBoard v6.0s, I have redesigned my cases with an upgraded lower half. If you've bought a case from me before, the lower can be ordered with an IOBoardv6.0 for a few sheckels extra.

    I'm not so sure, those ST fanboys are a stubborn crowd :)

    Nothing's changed on that front for decades, then! :)

    System16's page on that hardware, if you're like me and need the visual aide:
    https://www.system16.com/hardware.php?id=737

    A lot of this old hardware was some combo of Z80 and M68K variant. I suspect we're going to get a rapid explosion of a lot of 80s to early 90s stuff now that devs are getting familiar with that sort of hardware.
