Mame 144 u7 new features for arcade monitors?
« on: January 30, 2012, 02:48:29 pm »
I just saw this in the 144 u7 release notes and was wondering if it would help make emulation of mame games more accurate from a refresh perspective?

Nice spot, what does it all mean!

Will this play nice with crt emu driver without a groovymame build?

I think this is related to emulation of systems that integrated VGA and CGA hardware, so it will just improve accuracy for those specific systems. It's interesting nevertheless.
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.
