This accessory allows MiSTer to maintain real world time, even when not connected to the internet.
100% factory assembled
- Files written to SD card have correct timestamp
- Game saves that rely on correct time (like GBA)
- RTC v1.3
- CR1220 Battery
- Physically connect RTC to DE10-nano
- Connect MiSTer to Internet (Wired or WiFi)
- Ensure you have correct system time (main menu bar)
- Run the rtc script
- The script may indicate a failure
- Remove WiFi adapter / ethernet cable
- Restart MiSTer
- Verify correct system time
Good quality unit as you'd expect from MisterAddons, and using the right connector (sits correctly in the middle). Going into scripts and picking the RTC one it immediately set the clock and now the clock is instantly/always set and available without delay or network connection.
Note: the first unit received gave a "hwclock: Cannot access the Hardware Clock via any known method" after some testing I emailed MA for support and the issue was quickly resolved with a new unit, thanks for the support MisterAddons!
I wired an ic2 oled display to add a cool little multi color display to one of my MiSTer units. It worked flawlessly, I will be ordering another soon.
I recently purchased a Real Time Clock from MAO and it has completely changed my life. Before, I was constantly checking my watch to see what time it was, but now I can just quickly glance at my MiSTer FPGA and BOOM, I know exactly what time it is! I could not be happier with my purchase and would highly recommend the Real Time Clock to anyone with a MiSTer FPGA setup. It's a real time game changer!
It's a realtime clock. It tells time. I'd love it if there was a solution based off the DS3231 chip, but I'm not sure if support for it is built into the MiSTer kernel
Good stuff! Buy if you use the cores that need it or are just a MiSTer completionist like me.
