I found the ones where he's saying pre-5000 series had the correct polarity default and 5000+ have it incorrect, and the fix being added to CRT_EmuDriver.

EDIT: Aha, found it. 6450 are faster, therefore might be more reliable for mega high super resolutions: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.p ... msg1608538. However they only have a single analogue output.

heh nice! maybe I was confused after all...
What I did end up getting was 2x 6670s with 1GB GDDR5 memory (most common is the GDDR3 models) just for some headroom. I also don't have a use for a 2nd analog output so I didn't think twice.
The way I see it though the future will be 1xAnalog if we are lucky since VGA ports are non-existent on newer cards, only budget ones still use them... I really hope someone will finish that framebuffer device so we get rid of all that D3D9ex/resolutions/driver qwirks once and for all, at one point it will be inevitable....

Hi everyone,
i have still GroovyMAME arcade only 0.192 on my setup and i thought it´s time for an update.
Now i have no clue about any changes since my version. Can i just update my MAME folder and it´s ok, or is there anything else to do?
I use it with a Toshiba PF and crt_emudriver_&_tools_2.0_beta_11_12.6_W.7.8.10-64.
Any help would be appriciated.

just update groovy + romset most likely you'll be OK
if you see anything weird then update the crtemudriver as well
I am also stuck in 0.192 :lol: I am too bored to update anything atm :shifty:
