MiSTer FPGA News – TMNT, Future Konami Cores, Extermination & More

Kick And Run Documentation

pierco started documenting the Kick And Run arcade schematics. This is a soccer game by Taito.


Crazy Blocks

The Crazy Blocks arcade core has now officially been released. This is an arcade puzzle game and you can update your MiSTer now to obtain it.


Playstation Core

The Playstation core has the following bugs fixed:

-DBZ Ultimate Battle 22 no longer hangs on the first loading screen.
-Implemented handling logic for a edge case in the CD controller, which fixes a hang in Parasite Eve 2.

These bugs are not in the official core build but can be tested using builds from the MiSTerFPGA discord.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Looks like the TMNT core is pretty far along. Furrtek wanted to release the core for new years, but there are still some bugs that need to be fixed before that can happen.



Jotego released a beta core for the arcade game Extermination. This is a vertically scrolling arcade shooter and was released by Taito in 1987.


More Konami Arcade Games

It looks like Jotego will be working on more Konami arcade games, thanks to research done by furrtek with the TMNT hardware. So I assume, these games will be based on the TMNT hardware.


GunCon 2 & 3 Mappings

You will no longer need to map the GunCon 2 buttons when loading cores. Thanks to MiSTerAddons, the mappings are now added to MiSTers game controller database. Update your MiSTer to obtain these mappings, but you will still need to delete any old mappings you have created.

MiSTerAddons is also working on mappings for the GunCon 3.
