Problem with groovymame32_0144u2.013d / HLSL / Galaga?
« on: December 13, 2011, 05:01:57 pm »
I am running groovymame32_0144u2.013d and have a problem with Galaga when run with HLSL enabled.

Deleted all .cfg and .ini files

generate new .ini with -cc option

edit mame.ini
video d3d
hlsl 1
monitor vga

groovymame32_0144u2.013d.exe galaga

Galaga boots, shows post screens then after the white grid blacks out the screen, I can get the tab menu to display but no graphics

All other games seem fine

any ideas?

Thanks

Hi jimmy2x2x,

I've no clue of what can be happening, running galaga here with hlsl and your same settings does work normally.

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.

Try and get a screenshot when there's no video, and check if it's black too.

Solved, thanks for the tip!

The screenshot showed the graphics

So I disabled the shadow mask texture and now its fine ;)

Must have been an alpha channel issue

 :cheers:

Strange... I've tested it on xp32, ATI HD4350, Catalyst 11.??

Please test it with normal MAME too if possible. Also, try using the -monitor lcd option.
