All-in-one script for keeping up-to-date with the MiSTer ecosystem.

This script chains the following scripts: 1. Main MiSTer Updater. Downloads most of cores and firmware. You are able to select between these two options: * Official Main MiSTer Updater maintained by Locutus73 in the MiSTer-devel organization. * DB9 Fork Main MiSTer Updater with Extended Native Controller Compatibility for Genesis and NeoGeo/Supergun controllers. Requires SNAC8 compatible adapter. 2. Jotego Cores Updater. Downloads many advanced cores made by Jotego. 3. Unofficial Cores Updater. Downloads some cores that are not yet released but are fairly stable. Disabled by default. 4. LLAPI Cores Updater. Downloads LLAPI cores which are compatible with BlisSTer and LLAMA. Disabled by default. 5. BIOS Getter download bios for your installed systems from 6. MAME and HBMAME Getter download roms from 7. Names TXT Updater. Downloads a community curated names.txt file that enables better core names in the menus. 8. Arcade Organizer. Creates a folder structure under

for easy navigation to all the MRA files.

This script also contains some snippets from the Updater script maintained by Locutus73.


Download this ZIP file and extract
to your
folder on your primary SD card.

Then turn on your MiSTer, go to the Scripts menu and run this script from there.

It will take around 30 minutes the first time you run it, but later runs should take much less time.

Other setups that might be useful for you: - DB9/SNAC8 ZIP: Enables Extended Native Controller Compatibility for Genesis and NeoGeo/Supergun controllers. - usb0 ZIP: For people using USB as primary storage. You will be able to run this script from there and install all cores, roms, and MRAs on
