Games with ISSUES: report here!
« on: July 29, 2011, 07:48:23 am »
In case you find a game that shows any kind of problem with GroovyMAME, please use this thread to report it.

FIRST: Test the game with mainline MAME to make sure the issue is not related to GroovyMAME patches.

SECOND: Get a proper log of your game by using the following command line:

             groovymame.exe romname -v >romname.txt

THIRD: Post a brief report of the issue, attaching your romname.txt (Go to "Additional Options...", Attach). Make sure you mention at least:
           - rom name (use the name of the rom file, so we can find it easier)
           - video card model
           - monitor type
           - video drivers and Windows versions.

I have random crashes with Nebua Model 2 v0.9 using the custom drivers. It can take 1 hour or 1 minute, I can't narrow it down to a certain event.

Was fine with my old soft15khz setup with a GeForce so I assume it must be down to the driver version?

Hi retrorepair,

Do you mean a blue screen type crash, where the ati2mtag.sys file is mentioned as guilty or something different?

Hi Ansa89,

Thanks for the log. It seems to be related with xrandr not liking some of our params.

I checked bublbobl myself using last GA unofficial release (MAME v0.144u2) and it works just fine.

Please check snowbros and toki games too, to discard the classic low-dotclock issue.

Both games don't start, but I found this and following these instructions (create "bublbobl.ini" file with "cleanstretch 1" and "switchres 0") BubbleBobble starts with a really crappy sound.
Why with a dedicated config file it starts? I have to create a config file for every game which doesn't start (it sounds a bit ugly)?
If you need the log of running bublbobl, just ask me.

It just works because you're disabling the switchres engine so xrand is not invoked.

Yes, that's the classic low dotclock issue. I was going to refer you to that specific thread, it's a pity that it didn't get solved.

The only thing I can think of right now is that a folk who has ported Groovy patches to an Ubuntu distribution needed to make additional patches in order to make xorg accept resolutions below 320x240:

So that patch work partially, that's good! I guess why Groovy Arcade doesn't seem to need that patch. You're probably in better possition than me to have a global vision of what's going on in the Linux patch, I appreciate your efforts.

Definitely don't have a clue with the other issue. Is the resolution actually set before mslug exits?

Well, I don't know why GA doesn't need this patch, but we must remember that computer-science is not a "precise-science" (specially when talking about linux).
What I mean is that everyone have to check his own system and find a way to achieve the goal (there are too many software, each one with major/minor changes between two release...that's a lot of mess).
I know that gentoo (the base of GA) often patch its packages before compilation, so it could be the emerge script will apply a patch (involuntary) which resolve that problem. Maybe a day I will investigate this.

The monitor become black and I don't see nothing, so I don't know if the resolution change before groovymame gives up :-\ .

Would resolve the problem, if I create a "ini/bublbob2.ini" with "modeline 0" (or with a fixed resolution)?

Burning Rival (brival)
« Reply #12 on: January 30, 2012, 04:41:05 am »
Hello, there seems to be something going seriously wrong with this one. I can perfectly do without this game, but I'm reporting the issue here, in case some other game is affected. The problem doesn't happen with the latest official MAME build.

The game is "Burning Rival" (romset name: brival)

The problems are different, depending on how and where you run the emulator. On my arcade setup (Radeon 9200 AGP, 15KHz 25 inches arcade monitor, WinXP32 and CRT emudriver 6.5) I had 2 different behaviors.
1. I get the normal screen with the game's specs, then a message about the emulation driver not being 100% accurate. From now on it keeps switching resolutions forever.
2. If I force 416x224@60 by commandline, the game runs at about 50% speed without further problems.

On my everyday PC (integrated Nvidia 6150SE, VGA 17 inches CRT monitor, WinXP32), I get an even different behavior. The game starts normally, but there's a resolution switch at every screen change (i.e. from title screen to character selection screen). Then, when I insert a coin, I get a black screen, the emulator becomes unresponsive and I have to shut it down forcefully. I'm attaching the log from this setup.

Well, just try and report back ;) bublbob2 issue is strange because the game runs normally, doesn't it? Try running it with modeline 0 in order to see if it Switchres-patch related.

As for the mslug issue, it is similar of some crashes we had before which ended up being related to the PLL divider routines. This code comes directly from ATI/AMD. By the time when GroovyArcade was developed Chris was in contact with the guy in AMD who deals with Linux drivers, and thanks to this, some fixes could be added to ATI core routines to improve the behaviour for lower dotclocks. Could it be that some other Linux distributions do not contain the same PLL routines?

There're still issues with games which change resolutions. I think I have a fix for that, it will go for next release.

By now, try disabling the -changeres and the -multithreading options for those games.

I think the PLL routines are into kernel mainline and they are patched with the "ati9200_pllfix.diff" file (which is part of "15KHz patch"), the questions could be
- does this fix work correctly with new ATI graphic cards?
- is this fix applied only to ATI 9200 cards, or it involves some wide-used routines?

For sure, the PLL routines change as change the kernel version (obviously only if developers change that part of kernel source, but this is the idea), so someone should check if something important has changed in new kernel releases.

Well, that's not the patch I mean. That one was added to override the lower limits that were read from the card's bios (combios).

As you say, the pll routines are in the very kernel so there was no patch for them I believe, just the fix that came from AMD. But they might have change it again since then so that might be the issue. I remind the routine having two versions, one for newer cards and another for legacy cards and the issue was with the second one. However, the HD 5000 family was not tested thoroughly possibly.

After two days digging and searching for changed pll routines into kernel mainline, I give up.
The conclusion is that I have too limited knowledge for this (and at this point is only a waste of time).

I hope bitbytebit will come back with new magic patches (or something like that).

Hi Ansa, sorry I can't be of much help. Is there a place to check source files for kernel of both the version in GroovyMAME cd and the one your using?

It should be enough to know the kernel version used by GroovyArcade, then you download that version from http://www.kernel.org and patch it with 15KHz patches.
Same process for my version (which is 3.2.2).
Now you have two directories like "linux-GA_VERSION" and "linux-3.2.2", and you can "diff -ruN linux-GA_VERSION/drivers/gpu/drm/radeon linux-3.2.2/drivers/gpu/drm/radeon" or (if you are really crazy/courageous) "diff -ruN linux-GA_VERSION linux-3.2.2".

If there is something not clear, just ask.


EDIT: if GroovyArcade kernel version is 3.0.2, then
- download this
- download this
- unpack the two files
- OPTIONAL apply 15KHz patches
- run "diff -ruN linux-3.0.2/drivers/gpu/drm/radeon linux-3.2.2/drivers/gpu/drm/radeon" (or whatever you need to see the differences)

Yes, it's just that I don't know which is the kernel version in the last GroovyArcade CD :)

Oh, ok.
Do you mean latest official or unofficial release?
The kernel used by latest official release should be 3.0.2.
I never run the unofficial one ::) .

I bet both official and unoffial release use the same kernel, 3.0.2 then.

So it's a matter of comparing 3.0.2 vs 3.2.2. I assume I need to download the whole source, no way to browse it online, I'm I right?

Some news: I compiled kernel 3.2.4 and upgraded xf86-video-ati to 6.14.2 (from 6.14.1).
Now a lot of games (BubbleBoble, MetalSlug 1/2/3/X, and others) run at about 300% speed, so they are unplayable.

Note that now there are a lot of "device ':' adding ..." strings.
This is strange and could be related to mame upgrade 7 (?), or is it only a trip?

Some news: I compiled kernel 3.2.4 and upgraded xf86-video-ati to 6.14.2 (from 6.14.1).
Now a lot of games (BubbleBoble, MetalSlug 1/2/3/X, and others) run at about 300% speed, so they are unplayable.
As I wrote before, now "mslug" works (3 times faster than original speed).

This happens when vsync hardware functionality fails or is not available. GroovyMAME relies on vsync enterely in order to keep the game throttle. Does this happen just to some games or is a general issue??
Important note: posts reporting GM issues without a log will be IGNORED.
Steps to create a log:
 - From command line, run: groovymame.exe -v romname >romname.txt
 - Attach resulting romname.txt file to your post, instead or pasting it.

Galaga seems ok, so I think this happen only with some roms.

Galaga seems ok, so I think this happen only with some roms.

When GroovyMAME is able to create the game's native refresh (mslug, etc.) you get this kind of log:

Code: [Select]
SwitchRes: Setting Option -nothrottle
SwitchRes: Setting Option -refreshspeed
SwitchRes: Setting Option -waitvsync

However, when GroovyMAME is not able to generate the right refresh, which is the case of many vertical games rotated (galaga, etc.), then vsync is disable and -throttle is used instead. So these games cannot be considered.

A buggy v-sync only affects the first group of games (most).

Probably the combination of the new ATI driver, SDL, etc. is not working fine.

This is strange and could be related to mame upgrade 7 (?), or is it only a trip?

Hello I am doing a new live it bases in archlinux, and the problem on that you comment of the speed I pass, if you touch f10 the game it works to his correct, but this speed is not the solution, in archlinux had to install the package ati-dri, with this package already all the games returned to work correctly.
Verify that version of mesa/dri has in his system and updates, since the problem is not groovymame, it is the new driver.

 Regards.

I think we can exclude SDL.
IMHO the problematic software could be (one or more of):
- X server
- xf86-video-ati
- mesa
- linux kernel

I will downgrade xf86-video-ati to 6.14.1 and come back to old problems.

Mesa is at version 7.9.2.
Slackware hasn't any "ati-dri" package.

In slackware there is only one (big) package called "mesa", so I need to update that.

@ves: recently I've made some changes in openppjoy. If you are interested, I can send you the new tarball.

Same version of xf86-video-ati and mesa, but still no luck.
Have you patched xf86-video-ati with the "low resolution" patch (from AGES)? (But this shouldn't be relevant).
Which version of Xorg are you using?

@ves: you have mail.

Thank you for the mail Ansa89, It will look at it afterwards coolly, but I have liked the renaming since this way it is very much an explicit

Xorg 1.11.4-1.

Your problem surely is for the driver radeon_dri, update it.


 I have the new live updated from yesterday, here you can see all the versions of the packages Xorg radeon etc..

My Xorg is 1.9.5.
If I downgrade the xf86-video-ati all works well, so there should be something else involved (like libdrm or something close to it).

For now I will keep things as they are (because it seems all is working more or less).

Mortal Kombat is perfect, Mortal Kombat 2 is unplayable
« Reply #39 on: February 08, 2012, 06:37:59 pm »
Dear Calamity, I've been a plague for you lately, I hope you will forgive me somehow.  :angel:

As the subject states, I'm having a problem with Mortal Kombat 2 (mk2): it stutters and runs slower and slower, whereas Mortal Kombat 1 (mk) runs perfectly smooth. NBA Hangtime (nbahangt) does a similar thing, too. With the official MAME build, the problem doesn't occur, but the final speed measurement says 100% for mk and 97% (or less) for mk2. Maybe the CPU isn't powerful enough?  :-[

My specs:

- Athlon XP 2400+ with 1.5 Gb RAM
- Windows XP 32 bit with CRT Emudriver 6.5
- Selti 25" arcade monitor
- ATi Radeon 9250 128Mb PCI
