Ah haaa...
This issue doesn't affect all systems however. It seems to be dependent of your particular hardware configuration. Systems with AMD pre HD-5000 video cards are known to always suffer from this issue.
My 4870 (I think? Maybe -90?) would certainly fall under this category! I'll give this a try at the weekend, thanks for the link.

I have uploaded a X64 + arcade-only + D3D9ex + nonag GroovyMame 0.192 binary here: https://www.mediafire.com/file/x9vbdxa5 ... d3d9ex.rar

Anyone wanting another version just ask - 0.192's highlights AFAIK are significantly faster SH3 (cave) emulation and Akai Katana support :awe:

What do you all find is the most efficient way to play your steam library on your cabs -- especially if they are a small form factor with mid-tier parts? Steam link, in-home streaming, mapping to a frontend, or even running steam straight up?

I'm trying to get an idea of how I would like to do it on my future Vewlix F. Since it will have a smaller PC with a solid CPU but only a GTX 1050, I was leaning towards the in-home streaming through my main rig (1080Ti, i7 7700k @ 5.0GHz).

I use a steam pc on my Vewlix C
Tried steam link but found it too laggy
So use the pc directly using the big picture steam menu and have the controls connnected with ps360 boards
Works perfectly

Thanks! To follow up on that, what would you say would be the most graphics-intensive game you play on your Vewlix-C via Steam? Do you run a beefier GPU in it, or do you let your main rig do the work. Reason I ask is because while I'm sure my mini-pc can handle most games, I'm fearful to straight up play a game like Street Fighter V on it with a GTX 1050 in 1080p.

The PC I use is an i7 with 8GB of ram and a GTX960, it plays Darius burst, Tekken 7, SF5 and KOF 14 just fine
however I run at the screens native res of around 720p so your card should be more than enough

https://github.com/mamedev/mame/pull/3854
This PR improves sound emulation in Taito Zoom sound system games. This includes FX-1B and GNet boards. Comes at a fairly big performance hit, but I think you'd rather take that than the really tinny sound from before?

Decided I wanted to sort out the MAME PC in my Pony. A variery of reasons but mainly to make it reliable and usable for anyone other than me, and so I can consider it "complete" until such time as something important gets fixed.

Vertical, joystick only installation.

Using Attract Mode to directly build a ROM list I can feed to clrmamepro, filtering out what I consider the majority of crap and including some key variants (from viewtopic.php?t=28947). Spits out a list of 650+ distinct vertical titles as of MAME 0.220

Code: Select all

attract-console -b mame -E "Name equals batsugunsp|cyvernj|driftout|ddpdojblk|dkongjrj|dogosokb|downtownj|ghoxj|gwarb|ikarijpb" -F "Rotation equals 90|270" -F "DisplayType equals raster" -F "DisplayCount equals 1" -F "Control contains joystick" -F "Control not_contains gambling|positional" -F "Category not_contains Mature|Casino|MultiGame|Redemption" -F "Status not_equals preliminary" -F "Title not_contains bootleg|internal build|\(prototype|prototype\)|China|Raiden II New" -F "Manufacturer not_contains bootleg|Promat" -F "CloneOf not_contains ."  -F "AltRomname not_equals decocass|cedmag" -F "Year not_contains ?" -F "Name not_equals batsugun|cyvern|ddp3|ddpdojt|dkongjr|ghox|ikari|gwar|mjleague|metlhawk" --full -o vertmame
