Calamity, i wonder if you can help me tweat something thats be bothering me for a while. You know the Info screen you get when loading a rom (with the game name, date, cpu, sound and video info on) which has a white line border going around the edge of the screen?, well with my current Monitor spec of:


i have noticed that i can only just about see the white line of the border at the very top of my LCD display and a tiny bit of it on the very right hand side of the screen, but cant see any of the white border at the bottom or left hand side of my LCD screen. What vaules can i try adjusting in the Monitor spec line to 'shrink' the size down so im able to see the whole white line board around the edge of the screen?, as i guess ideally you want it so you can see the whole white line border around the edge of the screen?

Hi lettuce,

So does this happen all the time or only if you enable the -powerstrip option?

By now, we can't really tweak geometry settings when working with the powerstrip option, as these are the only values actually considered:


(the other ones are ignored)

This is because, with the -ps option, modeline values are not really calculated but just read from the hardware ports by means of PS, using the default desktop resolution. We then tweak the timings to adjust the vertical refresh, but that has the side effect of modifying the porch values to some extent, so that's probably what you're seeing. However, in the monitors I've tested this has no visible effects.

Hopefully when the PS integration is fully implemented we'll recalculate the whole modeline to avoid this issue.

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.
