C16 for MiST
This is the MiST port of Istvan Hegedus' FPGATED project.
The source code of the modified version is available in the mist-board repository.
Copy the latest core version onto a SD card and rename it to
By default the core will boot the built-in PAL kernal which will run
the C16 in PAL video mode. Thus your screen needs to support 50Hz PAL
timing. In order to get a NTSC setup you need to place a c16 NTSC
kernal on the SD card and rename to
C16.ROM. This kernal will then be
uploaded into the core on boot time and replace the built-in PAL
kernal. This can also be used to run the kernal version of the diag264
Loading and running programs
You probably also want to put some games in c16/plus4 PRG format onto
the SD card, preferably into a c16 subdirectory. Once the c16 has
booted use F12 to open the on screen display (OSD), select
and the PRG you want to load. The screen will flicker for a fraction
for a second while the program is being loaded directly into the C16
RUN to run the game.
Using the 1541 floppy
You can also load from floppy images in D64 format using the built-in
Mount D64 from the OSD to insert a floppy disk image
in D64 format. The simply use the regular C16 methods to access the
floppy disk. In most cases
LOAD "*",8 and a subsequent
will be what you want.
Using a SCART TV
The C16 core supports the MiST's ability to disable the built-in VGA scandoubler. Using the appropriate cable the C16 core can thus drive a standard SCART TV.
