VMMaker settings request for NEC XM2960
« on: March 01, 2012, 04:07:18 am »
This thread comes from here:

Morning, everyone.  After deciding to return to XP64 (seeing how I can add games in Maximus Arcade), I've been trying to read through the manual to my XM2960.  Unfortunately, I'm a bit confused as to what needs to be edited in the configuration file for VMMaker to ensure all the modes generated from Calamity's driver won't blow something up.  As the monitor lists several entries for the scan frequencies and porches at different resolutions, are there any other XM2960 owners that are more capable at deciphering the numbers?

Here ya go, Calamity.  I somehow managed to at least get some double-scan stuff going for games like Virtua Fighter, Paperboy, and Super Sprint (Either 1024x768 or 996x768).  It's just for actual low-res modes for emulators (and games like Rom Check Fail), I'm still confused on it.

Slowly figuring things out in ArcadeOSD.  Only question left is this: what's the best way to set up a 24/25/26KHz horizontal resolution game for double-scan to still keep the natural scanlines?

[EDIT]  Attempted to re-run VMMaker with the specs listed for the "VESA 1024x768 @60Hz" column.  Is there any way to get non-double resolution modelines in 15KHz.

Go right ahead with moving the topic to the GroovyMame forum.  I apologize for not responding sooner, work's been pretty busy at Walt Disney World lately.  Here's a copy of the VMMaker.ini file.

Code: [Select]
monitor_specs_0 = "15625-65000, 40.00-120.00, 0.369, 2.092, 2.462, 0.090, 0.090, 1.110, 0, 0, 768, 768"

Thanks for posting it here, Calamity.  I think this would be helpful, as I've read online there are quite a few XM29 Plus owners that run MAME.  This could be a valuable resource for other owners that want the settings to run the EGA resolution games without scrambling.
It doesn't matter how bad things are, it'll work out in the end.
