MiSTer Pack List v1.0 Launched

My v1.0 MiSTer ROM Pack List was launched after over a month of work by a team based out of the SmokeMonster Patreon-Elite Discord, led by Rysha. Fully compiled, it spans nearly 200,000 games, dozens of console/arcade/home-computer platforms, and decades of video game history.

Release Notes
This is a suggested layout for the MiSTer FPGA Multi-Console. No ROMs are included. Compile the list using the open-source EverDrive Packs Lists tools by pointing the build.py script to a single folder containing your legally-sourced ROMs. When the script has completed, all content will have been be hash-compared, renamed, and cleanly arranged for the MiSTer filesystem. If desired, fill in missing assets (firmware, etc) following the folder list below. The script allows a legal way of sharing file and folder layouts without distributing any ROMs, since it simply conveys a text descriptions of files and folders.

How to use:

1. Follow the Setup Guide to prepare an SD card: https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/Main…ki/Setup-Guide

Update MiSTer Firmware & Menu to the latest versions, as instructed in the Setup Guide. Rename the firmware as instructed.

2. After SD card is prepared and FW/Menu are updated (and FW renamed), copy the pack directly to the root of the SD card. Overwrite files if prompted.

Notes:
Update your cores
– “VHD” means Virtual Hard Drive. When you see one in a folder, it usually means that a ready-to-use setup will boot when its core is launched
Controller Tests
– “NN” cores are custom builds by Rysha with Nearest Neighbor scaling
– Analog NTSC Menu provided by Rysha 2018-11-01

Common Hotkeys:
– F12: Open/close OSD/submenu
– Alt-F12: Core selection
– LCtrl+LAlt+RAlt: “USER” button, normally used as “core/system reset”
– LShift+LCtrl+LAlt+RAlt: MiSTer reset (load Menu core)

Warning:
– Do not rename folders
– Do not request support outside of Discord
– Do not submit error reports for individual ROMs

Contribute:
Donate
– Simple READMEs are needed for some computer cores, to guide MiSTer users through the process of booting games
– Game collections are welcome if they are tested packs with new content
