Any news on the original site and content? If this site can't be hosted anymore, I'm sure we can take an archive of the last snapshot and make it available. However, I cannot seem to find reliable sources to get the ISO nor latest site content (archive.org has it back to July 2011 as the latest).

I have the latest snapshot from git (I got it before the official site being closed).
If you are interested I can try to compress and upload it somewhere.

that would be great. Let me know how bit it is and we'll find a spot. i also noticed on the git that the ISO's are still there, so that is good. I may get those down as well.

I checked the content of my cloned branch: it's the development directory without isos (just source/scripts to create the iso).
The checkout url was "git://git.groovy.org/groovy/groovyarcade.git".

If you still interested, the compressed archive is 21MB :) .

EDIT: patch reuploaded (there was a stupid "wrong variable name" error). This one should be good.

 I'm building my own gentoo 64bits distro with this patch and switchres, is there is other patches for make a 'groovymame' clone (emerge-webrsyncing in a vm for now, so not tested ^^ ) ?

Yes, this patch is needed to correctly show the tty on a 15KHz monitor.
Without the patch you can only start a X server (with custom modeline) to see something.

Hi all.
In my cab i have a 15khz arcade monitor mounted in vertical position.
If i choose "vertical" in monitor GroovyArcade setup, the image is perfect but turned upside down (rotated clockwise from horizontal).
What should i do to rotate image counterclockwise instead of clockwise ?

Thanks in advance !
You're great !!!  :D

Use these two options combined: -flipx -flipy

Yes! Flipx+flipy together did the trick!  :notworthy:
Games work well and the aspect is fine.

Now i have a problem with frontend. :embarassed:
I can't succeed in correctly rotating wahcade layout (if i try "xrandr -o left" before launchingwahcade, wahcade layout is rotated, but then games are miscentered and often playing too fast... ???)
I am trying wahcade because advancemenu always throws "illegal instruction" as for other guys in the forum...

Hi all.
I have dropped wahcade and returned to advancemenu.
I downloaded latest version (27-11) sources from http://arcadeforever.forumfree.it/?t=64108705 and just compiled (./configure + make).
Now Advancemenu works fine! :D

Hi federillo67,

That's good to know. Can you tell as what exact version of AdvMenu was throwing the "illegal instruction"? Does the problem still occur with the current binaries on the arcadeforever site?

Hi Calamity.
Faulting advmenup is from GroovyArcade CD.
version is: AdvMenuPLUS alpha-20111221 (Compiled Jun 5 2012 with gcc-4.7.0) from --version parameter.

The binaries downloaded from Arcadeforever site (advmenup-20121127-ubuntu32.tar) give me the following error:
./advmenup: error while loading shared libraries: libvga.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
maybe because they are compiled on Ubuntu.
Trying to compile from sources seemed to me the fastest way, more then trying to install libvga (This one would have been my second choice... :)).

Thanks for your work on Groovy Arcade ! :notworthy:

Update 15KHz patches for linux 3.8.

NEWS: now it's also possible to start at 25KHz instead 15KHz.
To do so, you need to replace the "c" parameter that you find at the end of "video=VGA-1:640x480ec" with "z".
Example:
- string to be added to lilo/grub to boot at 15KHz -->  "video=VGA-1:640x480ec"
- string to be added to lilo/grub to boot at 25KHz -->  "video=VGA-1:640x480ez"

Keep in mind that this new feature is experimental and could not work.

Nice.  Gonna try it in this Mint 14 install (yeah, I'm playing with multiple distros) and see how GRUB2 likes it.
It doesn't matter how bad things are, it'll work out in the end.

Still having issues, but would you know if that video addition to the kernel line would work in GRUB2 as well?

It should work also on grub2, since it is a kernel parameter and not a grub related thing.

Yup, it finally worked (though I had to save the default kernel source's config file and load it into the 3.8 sources so it could finally boot).  I've got it booting on Fedora 18 with a 720x480 15KHz console.  Once I get home tonight from work, I just need to figure out the "bad parameter" error I'm getting again from switchres.  Another semi-related issue is with certain native/wine games locking up the display.  I might have Calamity look into that as well, as it happened with modelines generated from SwitchRes.

Thanks greatly for the 3.9 patch.  Not only did it patch correctly on the first attempt, but it boots wonderfully with a 15KHz console and native linux games running at proper arcade resolutions.  I'm curious, though, what are your thoughts on the new Intel HD5000 graphics series for GroovyUME and native linux gaming on arcade monitors?

I don't know if the Intel graphics is suitable for arcade games.
I have only one setup to test the arcade stuff and comes with an ATI Radeon HD5450; so any test will be appreciated.

I could look into it when the time comes.  I can say after testing in Ubuntu with the patched kernel, that something else will most likely need patching (not sure if it's SDL, or the Xorg ATI driver, or both) in order to get GroovyMAME and GroovyUME to automatically create and switch resolutions.

Got it re-installed and working fine now (save for the modeline thing, but I believe that could be specific to Rom Check Fail.).  Just out of curiosity, how can one utilize the config files in /etc/cwiid/wminput for different situations?  Like, for example, I want to use the gamepad configuration for consoles and games that support joystick input and lightgun for lightgun titles in emulators.  I've tried using wminput -c /etc/cwiid/wminput/gamepad to no positive result.  Not entering something correctly, I'm guessing?

Ansa89, has any progress been made on Kernel 3.11?  Not sure if xf86-video-ati would need upgrading to benefit from it, but I know the latest open source drivers for the radeon cards has brought massive 3D improvements to a number of cards from the 4000 series and up  Just curious about that.

[Edit] Nevermind, I derped pretty badly before checking out the Kernel website.  3.11 is stil in RC phase.  Don't mind me.  :P

This is strange, attempting to patch xf86-video-ati sources with the allow_low_res.diff file results in "HUNK #1 failed" at what may be lines 1389 and 3182 in the respective files ./src/drmmode_display.c and ./src/radeon_driver.c

Could there be a possibility this patch file  may be out of date for recent versions?  I would be more than willing to break my Arch install once again to test a low-res patch for X.Org version 7.2.

The "allow_low_res.diff" patch was made for pretty old xf86-video-ati drivers.
I will try to update the patch for newer version ASAP.

Ah, ok.  How would this affect x.org and the XRandR extension?  Hasn't it changed the format of modelines recently when it went from 1.1 to the latest versions?
