Monitor presets
« on: November 21, 2011, 12:18:51 pm »
Monitor presets built in GroovyMAME (SwitchRes v0.015)

Format: -crt_range 0-9   HfreqMin-HfreqMax, VfreqMin-VfreqMax, HFrontPorch, HSyncPulse, HBackPorch, VfrontPorch, VSyncPulse, VBackPorch, HSyncPol, VSyncPol, ProgressiveLinesMin, ProgressiveLinesMax, InterlacedLinesMin, InterlacedLinesMax
Notes:
  • To use one of the built-in presets, use it by its name in the monitor option of mame.ini, e.g.: monitor generic_15
  • To use a custom preset, use the keyword custom as the monitor name in mame.ini (monitor custom), then fill in the required crt_range lines
  • Then crt_range lines shown below are the ones used internally by GroovyMAME for each monitor preset. You don't need to declare them explicitely. They're just provided as a starting point to readjust existing presets.

Monitor presets built in VMMaker
      
Format: monitor_specs0-6   HfreqMin-HfreqMax, VfreqMin,VfreqMax, HFrontPorch, HSyncPulse, HBackPorch, VfrontPorch, VSyncPulse, VBackPorch, HSyncPol, VSyncPol, ActiveLinesLimit, VirtualLinesLimit
Notes:
  • Built in monitor presets are selected by their name, as "H9110", "D9800", "CGA", etc., editing vmmaker.ini, e.g.:  MonitorType = "H9110" . You don't need to introduce the full monitor_specs lines. They are just provided as a starting point to create new monitor_specs lines out of them.
  • To use a custom monitor preset, or any of the presets created by users (below), edit this option in vmmaker.ini: MonitorType = "CUSTOM", then fill in the required monitor_specs lines.
  • Currently VMMaker monitor specs format is outdated with respect to GroovyMAME. This situation is annoying and will be corrected as soon as possible. By now, you can port the modern GroovyMAME presets to the older format used by VMMaker, by doing this:
    GroovyMAME format: crt_range0  15625-15750, 49.50-65.00, 2.000, 4.700, 8.000, 0.064, 0.192, 1.024, 0, 0, 192, 288, 448, 576

The Hantarex Polo 25 (not Polostar) is a dual mode 15KHz/25KHz (manually switched) arcade monitor.

We established in another thread that when it's in 15KHz mode, it can use the same preset as the Hantarex MTC 9110 (H9110)...

http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=110905.msg1205207#msg1205207

It could probably be added as an alias for the H9110 setting, but it should be at least documented somewhere so that it doesn't get lost.

Any suggestion for the PAL SCART TV mentioned here: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,116669.msg1294695.html#msg1294695 ?

The service manual says it can do 49 to 61hz refresh.

Can anyone provide custom specs for a Intervideo 25 inch arcade monitor?
Magic resolutions are working almost fine with generic specs in VMmaker.ini, but several titles aren't showing on my monitor.
I'm running Groovymame 0.147u3 latest version with switchres 0.014, my FE is Mala, but I tried also the same games not working with the only Groovymame executable and nothing changed.

Does anyone have any settings for the (Betson) Kortek KT-2914F? I had an AVGA card but it started artifacting on me. Decided to jump head first into groovymame and got myself a HD4350.

Regarding switchres and vmmaker presets - which of the switchres presets as detailed here: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,128879.0.html are available within vmmaker?

vmmaker itself doesn't provide any feedback as to what's going on with the monitortype line - you can even comment it out and it'll still function perfectly happily.  ???

Hi cools,

The presets supported by vmmaker are exactly the ones listed on the first post in this thread. If you remove the settings from vmmaker.ini it will silently pick a CGA monitor as default.

The covergence of the presets format should have been done months ago but has not been possible yet for several reasons. Hopefully soon.

Aha! Thanks.

I need to check my machine at home then, I thought I had it set to arcade_31 in VMMaker yet everything's working perfectly at 31khz in Groovy.

I like generic, standard presets rather than model specifics ;)

The covergence of the presets format should have been done months ago but has not been possible yet for several reasons. Hopefully soon.

Just wondering if these presets are still valid or if we only use the ones listed in the "GroovyMAME/GroovyUME 0.149 SwitchRes v0.014b"?

I have a Wei-Ya M3129 "m3129" which is listed but not sure what to put in the vmmaker.ini file? I am guessing that your presets are not compatible with the vmmaker.ini file.

Sorry this has always confused me :)

Calamity, I think right now the biggest problem for getting the XM2960 into the presets generally comes with how to deal with games that are a vertical resolution of 400 lines (like War Gods).  That, plus the general issue with the monitor's preset of 1024x768 not even wanting to go up to 49KHz.

Also out of curiosity, do you think interlaced mode should be retained for this monitor on games that make use of it (Popeye and Bloody Roar 2 as examples)?
It doesn't matter how bad things are, it'll work out in the end.

Quick query as I'm struggling with this. The VMMaker VGA and GM arcade_31 presets work pretty well together but are centred on screen differently. If I convert arcade_31 to VMMaker format it should be the below monitor_specs line, am I right?

      crt_range0  31400-31500, 49.50-65.00, 0.940, 3.770, 1.890, 0.349, 0.064, 1.017, 0, 0, 400, 512, 0, 0
  monitor_specs0  31400-31500, 49.50-65.00, 0.940, 3.770, 1.890, 0.349, 0.064, 1.017, 0, 0, 512, 512

It shouldn't actually create any interlaced modes though? I'm pretty sure 31k interlaced modes don't work on the monitor.

I'm not sure the setting above for the Nanao MS9-29 are right? I had originally run VMmaker with just the "Generic" setting and Groovymame .ini with "arcade_15" and everything works great. All the games are correctly centred.

I tried the MS9 settings in VMmaker and then set the Groovymame .ini to "ms929" and all the games are slightly off to the left compared to the frontend at 640x480@30hz and I tried Narc a 24Khz game and it didn't sync at all.

Stick with the arcade_ ones.

For real precision, port the MAME preset values into a VMMaker CRT_range.

Do you have an auto switching 24Hz one?
Mine isn't so you have to use the custom setting and only put in the first line...
But yes mine is a little to the left as well....

The MS929 preset centres differently to the generic ones.

If you're using VMMaker "GENERIC" or "CGA" then the "generic_15", "arcade_15", "arcade_15ex", "arcade_15_25" and "arcade_15_25_31" MAME presets will all be centred well in 15KHz. You just have to look at the porch values to see this.

You need to use the MS9-29 values (in the opening post) in VMMaker as well as the preset in MAME.

Hello.. I am reading this topic in the hope I can solve my problem that I have with my Makvision M3129DF-TS . I am using Grovymame, and the problem I have is with 31khz games like Wargods, NFL Blitz etc.. when monitor switch to 31khz the imagine is not centered, half of it is out of the monitor (to the left) and the rest of the monitor is showing black/grey area.. is it something I can fix with .ini parameters editing?

thansk for the help.!! :D

What are the settings for the vmmaker.ini GENERIC preset?

Using GENERIC I can get my monitor partially working (Sony BVM-A20F1U), but am not having much luck with custom settings. I think if I could use the GENERIC settings as a starting point I'd have more luck.

Thanks.

Does anyone know what the crt_ranges would be for a Sony BVM-D24E1WU?  No amount of google reveals anything.  While the manual has general specifications (15-45hz) it doesn't say anything about timings.

I've been able to get low res and some medium high resolutions to work with arcade_15_25_31, but there are some resolutions not working out of the box like 512x384 and 384x512 and 512x768.  I have been able to tweak those to work using arcadeOSD but I have no idea how to turn around and covert to a crt_range for the mame.ini.  So it seems the monitor can display eveyrthing, one way or another, but getting them all to work at once with the correct crt_ranges is the issue.

The monitor is capable of 15-45 Hz and 768p at up to 61 vertical hz refresh (maybe more).

I've been able to get all the resolutions to work "one way or another", but at the cost of other resolutions then not working.

I just don't seem to have the brain power to figure out the crt_ranges.

Anyone know what the crt-ranges would be for this monitor?  I know it's capable, I've seen all the resolutions work, but as I've said, a few require custom tweaking and I don't know how to put that back into a crt_range.

This is one of the most beautiful CRT's I've ever used and I hope I can get it fully working.

I'd like to know as well please, as this is what I'm using.  Going to be giving Groovymame a shot once all of my new computer parts come in.  Should I just use the standard trisync (arcade_15_25_31) option?

I would like to use GroovyMAME with a Ultracade Universal Video Converter/downscaler (I have a small form PC with onboard NVIDIA graphics with not possibility of adding a suitable ATI card) to JAMMA. The best output option is 480p. What monitor preset does this best? 31k?

Because you're supposed to run at the desktop resolution all the time (say 640x480), you can simply set -monitor lcd.

Presets for the following Sony Production Monitors.  For god sakes, your monitor should be configured for 4:3 underscan, and for those that are widescreen monitors, set your H SIZE appropriately for a 4:3 image.  This could all be converted to 16:9 for the widescreen versions of the monitor but it's a corner case I'm not using (yet) so I'm not providing any info on that.  Almost all old games are 4:3 so don't bother killing yourself over a 16:9 desktop or whatever.  I do intend to go back to this later so I can play newer PC games and consoles, but you can adjust another channel for a widescreen console for now.

BVM-D24E1WU
BVM-D32E1WU
BVM-D20F1U
BVM-A24E1WU (unverified but likely to work)
BVM-A32E1WU (unverified but likely to work)

These monitors all support. 240p, 480i, 525i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, NTSC and PAL and allow a whole lot of variation in between.  I've not included any PAL ranges in here because I haven't had time to play around with pal emulated systems.  With these ranges you will have the benefit of getting a nice 1024x768 desktop and resolutions all the way up to 800p (a little out of spec) for situations where you want do double the resolution and use scan line effects.  I also don't really have any reason to get 1080i working so that's not included.  The ranges are designed to conform as close to NTSC and EDTV standards as I could possible make them.  You will likely need to adjust the horizontal position in arcade_osd for each resolution as the picture shifts horizontally a little bit for each individual mode.  Vertical should stay consitent once done the first time (per 480i/720p/480p).  The standard resolutions should be pretty close out of the box.

monitor "bvm_d24e1wu_alt", "Sony BVM-D24E1WU - Alternate", "4:3"
        crt_range0 15200-20500, 54.70-62.00, 1.500, 4.700, 4.700, 0.602, 0.191, 1.352, 0, 0, 192, 288, 390, 576
        crt_range1 30300-35000, 54.70-62.00, 0.500, 2.000, 2.600, 0.128, 0.030, 1.032, 0, 0, 320, 480, 0, 0
        crt_range2 30300-35000, 54.70-62.00, 0.500, 2.000, 2.600, 0.030, 0.030, 1.032, 0, 0, 481, 512, 0, 0
        crt_range3 42200-49900, 54.70-62.00, 0.800, 0.755, 3.400, 0.067, 0.156, 0.444, 0, 0, 640, 800, 0, 0

FOR THE EXTRON TURN OFF ADSP.  It's a piece of ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- mode, at least for groovymame, and screws up interlaced games by forcing them to progressive mode and dropping half the fields.  It also will make alignment impossible.  You will have to realign every time your reboot for every mode.  You've been warned.

192-288 vertical line range is a little bit vertically stretched to allow 224 line games like SNES console to have no black bars on top or bottom.  Also 192 line systems like colecovision will still have black bars but get a bit more vertical stretch to look a little better.  So go to a 480/i mode (or any more between 240-288) in aracde osd and adjust your monitors V SIZE accordingly.

If you have other consoles attached to your monitor, do this ON ANOTHER CHANNEL, so you can keep one config for your groovymame, and another for standard NTSC console adjustment.  Good example,  adjust groovymame on channel 1, and calibrate consoles on channel 2, or assign each console to a separate channel to get perfect alignment for each.  Up to you.

You will get a farely wide range of games working with these modelines.  Atari games that were 384p (25hz) should play natively, however they will be vertically squished.  This is because the the monitor does not support 25hz and this was the best I can do.  Two options here.  Use a different channel and stretch out your V SIZE, or set up an INI file for each atari game and force the resolution to 2560x768@0 and throw in some scanline effects (this is what I do).  Either way, you pretty much pixel perfect resolution.

Attached are the user modes I use, by no means complete, but a good start.

Hello all,

I'm running the Linux build of Groovy MAME in an Egret II rascasse cab with a Nanao MS929 monitor. I've changed the monitor preset to Nanao MS929 and some of the games in GM no longer sync, giving me a rolling image. DoDonPachi (and I think R-Type) were affected. When I switch back to generic 15KhZ setting everything syncs correctly again.

What is the advantage of using the coresponding preset? Is it just the default image centering? Any explanation as to why this isn't syncing with those games?

Thanks,
Rupert.

By using the appropriate preset you will have better timing for your hardware (front/back porch, number of lines ... and allowed vertical refresh range).

The rolling image is not an issue. You have a pots inside the egret cab in the top right hand door. One is the V-sync, by adjusting it you will recover a stable picture.

Will the Nanao one marked "ms2930" work just as well for 2931?
