View Full Version : The MIST FPGA

14th April 2016, 21:17
Hi guys,

I'm considering getting a MIST FPGA computer for my birthday. It will replace the old A1200 as my Amiga system. Anyone has any experience with it? Some tips? Things I should prepare? Thanks in advance. :thumbs:

It's definitely an interesting project. Obviously as it's running a sort of emulated hardware in its core I've heard there are some compatibility issues with some software. But nothing major.

I personally don't have a need for one as it's basically just a way to emulate different 8bit and 16bit systems as I'm happy with my emulation PC. There is also the issue that all emulated systems are based on Linux emulation and that is still some way behind PC emulators such as WinUAE and MAME. But equally it's cool to have a dedicated retro hardware setup like this to play around with. And being small you can have it anywhere. Also good for a mini arcade cabinet setup.

It depends what you want to do with it really. For Amiga only at the moment I would be more tempted by the Vampire accelerators.

I don't know much about it, but someone brought one to a recent LAG meeting and it looked cool :).
