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
