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:

Does anyone have a recent build of Groovymame (i.e 0.213, 0.214) with the No Nag diff applied?

I'm trying to get a setup together that runs in 640x480 as default for the menu (Tosh PF Tri-sync) but switches to 15k as required, or runs at 15k for the menu and switches to 640x480/31k as required!



Basically I'd like normal 15k stuff to run, and be able to get demul and other 31k stuff selectable and running. I have an Irken tri-sync helper I can put in line, but is this plausible or asking too much?

edit - setup is win10, 200ge CPU, 7950 GPU.

Someone who knows better than me can go into more detail (or correct me if I'm wrong), but I believe switching between 15k and 31k while the monitor is powered is not recommended as it could damage the chassis. I think you need to just pick one or the other, and down/upscale as needed.

Nah, the auto switching monitors are fine dealing with resolutions within range

Personally I would run everything in 31k with software scanlines.

Thanks cools, will the setup be "better" in 15k though, I mean, are 31k + software scanlines going to be discernible from "proper" 15k do you know?

I couldnt tell the difference on a Toshiba PF, ran it that way for years.

You can 100% tell the difference between a 15k only monitor and 15k on a trisync whether native or software scanlines, but 15k and 31k software on a trisync... look the same to me.
