Updater script for MiSTer

The script updates all MiSTer cores, including menu.rbf and the main MiSTer Linux executable; it updates scaler filters, GameBoy palettes and scripts; it can (experimental and risky) optionally update the whole Linux system.
Simply put in your SD and launch it through MiSTer main menu OSD (press F12 and then Scripts). Please right click on the links in this README or on the RAW button in GitHub script pages in order to actually download the raw Bash script, otherwise you could download an HTML page which isn’t a script and won’t be executed by MiSTer (you will see no output, but just an OK button in MiSTer Script menu interface). will always download and execute the latest (where the real update code is) from GitHub, so you will never have to deal with "updater updates". You can make an update.ini (same name as the script and placed in the same directory) file with custom user options: see USER OPTIONS section (please click the link) for all user options and their detailed explanations.

I take no responsibility for any data loss or anything, if your DE10-Nano catches fire it’s up to you: use the script at your own risk.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
