Excellent.  I'll give it a shot tomorrow after work.  (My shift setup today ends at 11:30 and going back in tomorrow morning at 9:45.)  This could be a major step in progression towards the next version of GroovyArcade
It doesn't matter how bad things are, it'll work out in the end.

So, got the system fully updated, re-compiled 7.2 of the ATI driver for X, and now am experiencing several oddities.  The first of which, I seem to lose my mouse cursor when X starts up.  Next, some games seem to work just fine while others do not.  For example, I can run all of my confirmed working Neo-Geo roms (Double Dragon, Magician Lord, etc) and a select few other games (Street Fighter II) just fine.  Others exit immediately with the same problem about XRandR.  If you want, I can log on temporarily from the linux box and post some logs.

I forgot to ask, would any of the SDL patches to the ISO have had anything to do with this as well?

[Edit] Ah-HA!  It IS in fact SDL being un-patched that is causing my issues.  I did an environment variable of SDL_VIDEO_X11_XRANDR=0, and got no issues (but no full-screen switching).  So apparently SDL in some way needs additional patching for such low resolutions.

Hi,
I'm planning on buying a tri-frequencies cabinet and I was wondering if Groovy Arcade can take advantage of that for 24 and 31khz games ?

Thanks,
Monkee

Yes, it can.  If you have the manual for the monitor, you can enter everything needed for SwitchRes and GroovyMAME/GroovyUME after installation.  There is a chance the D9200 or D9800 presets could work for you as well.

So just got this setup via USB boot on my cocktail vertical only project.

Its being output to an Elctrohome G07 (via Gigabyte mobo with AMD Hybrid onboard VGA) run through a Ultimarc JPAC


How do I define or select the resolution that will run native for the AdvanceMenu? Where is this located ?

Thank you!

I am also interested in the resolution change of AdvanceMenuPLUS. As far as I know, the resolution is fixed to be 648x480. To change that, you would need to modify the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change the section "Modes". This is what i did to set the resolution to 320x240:

Section "Modes"
        Identifier      "ArcadeModes"
648x480@60.00 15.6300Khz
#       ModeLine          "648x480x60.00" 13.129200 648 672 736 840 480 482 487 521 -HSync -VSync interlace
        ModeLine          "320x240@57.0Hz" 6.440 320 328 360 408 240 249 252 277 -hsync -vsync

EndSection

Note that I had to find a modeline configuration that worked with my arcade monitor. I also had to make changes to the AdvmenuPlus theme, that was configured for the default resolution.

What kind of arcade monitor do you have that you enabled the lower res menu resolution for?

Thinking of using GroovyArcade for an older computer that I have laying around (with an AGP ATI Rage 128 videocard) that I have to use with a Wells Gardner arcade monitor (through a J-PAC).

Where is the current source tree and build scripts?  The GIT repo mentioned at https://code.google.com/p/groovyarcade/source/checkout appears to be empty.

So what are my options to get the Marquee's to fill the screen. Do I need to resize them all in Photoshop or can I set some scaling options?

Anyone using Xorg v1.16 finding any difference in performance to Xorg v1.15?

I am finding glxgears to run very slow in fullscreen with v1.16 (1024x768@75hz).

Note: I'm just checking out vanilla Xorg v1.16, No patches or changes at this time.

Which version do you really want? I suspect 4.12 is a typo, there is no 4.12 yet ;)

Hehe. Sorry, I meant 4.1.12

It's only the linux diff I need. The 3.19 one fails patching the second last file because it doesn't seem to exist.

I only did it on 4.1.13 but the same patches should apply on 4.1.12

You can find the patches here:
https://github.com/philenotfound/linux-stable-15khz/tree/4.1.13-15khz

Or a tarball here:

How did you do it? Did you just patch the linux-3.19.diff onto your 4.1.13 kernel source or did it need tweaking?

If they needed tweaking, I updated the commit message to reflect this. The linux-patch needed tweaking for 4.1. The other 2 didn't since 3.19.

Basically upon a new tag in linux-stable I create a branch <version>-15khz, cherry-pick the patches from an older one, tweak if necessary and tag them as v<version>-15khz.
On a semi-regular basis I redo this to have an up-to-date kernel on my cabinet.

Thanks, I have it working now. I needed it to use the console on my non Groovy Arcade Linux installation. I know how the offsets in the diff file work now so I should be able to sort it myself if it changes again.
