Emulation or FPGA?

Retro gaming has never been more popular than now. Over the past two decades I have experimented with emulation on PC, Mac and all kinds of Linux devices. About a decade ago was probably the breaking point where a great number of Chinese made handheld devices came to market. Those would mostly based on some kind of Linux OS in order to emulate vintage computer and console systems. It makes sense as Linux can be light weight and easy to run. Also, emulators have made it to Linux a long time before that. But 10 years later the landscape has changed a bit. Right now it’s virtually impossible for me to count up all the available handheld devices. There are dozens of brands out there and each have multiple devices. What has changed though is the trend to higher end devices and Windows as OS. Right now high end gaming handhelds based on Windows can cost anywhere between US$ 1,000 and $1,500.

Retro gaming with a MiSTer has become very popular and for many the ultimate and only choice because of its accurate recreation of many vintage computer and console systems. While it’s not exactly rocket science to get one up and running, for some people who are not used to tinkering and installing scripts etc. it may be too much to ask. This is where the RetroToast MiSTer tutorials and Quick Tips come into play to get everybody up and running in no time. The tutorials are lean, to the point and easy to understand.

 

For absolute beginners or people who just want to plug and play I recommend buying a pre-built system (a full hardware build tutorial will come at a later time). This can be either a pre-built MiSTer system, including housing, USB hub and more or a full system including software/system pre-installed on a SD card. This following Basic Setup Guide is for everyone who has the hardware but still needs to install the system. The guide shows in easy steps how to download, install and update Mr. Fusion, which is the heart of the system and makes everything work.

 Mr. Fusion is the most convenient and easy way to install the system and everything you need with one simple installation. After that you’re ready to go, but I recommend installing the Update All Script as well which is just as easy and gets everything up to the latest version. Follow my simple installation guide video on the left and make sure to subscribe to the channel so you don’t miss out on new MiSTer tutorials and tips, retro game reviews and news.
