MiSTer Pack List v3.0 Released – Updater Script Special Edition

I just pushed MiSTer Pack List v3.0 to Github. V3 is a complete redesign based around the new functionality of the Updater Script by Locutus73. I worked with Locutus behind the scenes and he designed the script around the file-layout of the MiSTer Pack List. Basically, it’s so integrated now that you will never have to manage or update official cores ever again. Simply run the Update Script from MiSTer’s GUI and it will fetch the latest Official Cores, Mister Main, Filters, and Palettes, and will populate them in their respective locations. It even works with my complex Arcade Hacks folders.

How to Update from v2.0 to v3.X
1. Back-up your custom files (core configs, saves, etc)
2. Format your old SD card
3. Run MiSTer SD Card Tool
4. Copy compiled pack to SD card
5. Run updater script from MiSTer GUI

Release Notes:

WARNING: Erase your previous pack from the SD card before using v3.0 or you’ll break the updater!

Mister Pack List v3.0 – Updater Script Special Edition
– Removed all official RBFs, you must use the Updater Script to populate and update your cores now. See the updated README! Unofficial cores will still be included (e.g., coeff, NN, etc) until they are depreciated. A huge thank you to Locutus73 who tailored the script specifically for my MiSTer Pack List!
