GroovyMAME 0.147u3 SwitchRes v0.014 problems with lots of games
« on: January 27, 2013, 06:29:26 pm »
I have compiled this with cave sh3 games enabled.  Some games work, some don't.  It seems that almost ALL vertical games no longer work (pacman, galaga, etc), mk, mk2, mk3, wargods, golden tee games, etc.  I had groovymame 146 was working perfectly.  I'm assuming its due to all of the great new changes you have implemented.  When i try and create a log file, this error pops up in the command window before creating the txt file:

Here are my mame.ini and vmmaker.ini and various log files in a zip file.  Any help?

First question: have you tried the 'official' GroovyMAME builds? Same problem?
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.

I sure did.  That's actually the last thing that i tried.  Does my vmmaker file look ok?

Yes, everything looks right. The problem seems to be related with magic resolutions. Try using ModeTableMethodXML 1 in vmmaker.ini, just for testing.

changing that seems to have fixed most of my problems.  I am running hyperspin as my front end, so i had to change the modeline value to 100.  Everything seems ok except NFL Blitz and the psx system 11/12 games are running in a tiny screen.  And Tekken 3 seems to run a lot slower (i'm running with an intel core i5 3570k).  Thank you so much for your continued support!

Any help as to why Tekken 3 is running so slow and running at about 13-14" on my 29" monitor.  Any settings in mame.ini that i need to change?
