How to play on MiSTer FPGA Hardware

Play On Mister FPGA

It is possible to play the romhacks on a MiSTer FPGA system. MiSTer FPGA emulates the original cabinet hardware using Field Programmable Gate Arrays.

In order to run the romhacks on MiSTer FPGA, you must use the Donkey Kong Arcade Core for MiSTer FPGA.

Patch an original Donkey Kong romfile to the romhack romfile. Instructions on how to apply the patches is available on the 'HOW TO PATCH' page.
On that page you also find a download link to obtain a single zipfile containing the patches for all the romhacks.

Replace the original with the patched of the romhack in the folder '/_Arcade/mame/'.

Change the following section of the 'Donkey Kong (US, Set 1).mra' file



Replace the checksums in this section of the 'Donkey Kong (US, Set 1).mra' file with the checksums of the changed code.

The following overview gives the changed checksums for each of the romhacks.
