thanks for the advice. with AMD APU 15KHz is possible ?
is there any website to check that kind of stuffs ?

It's a matter of testing. But testing costs money. That's why it was suggested to grab a common supported ATI card in the first place. I can't remember of anyone using and APU on Linux yet. But if the chipset is supported by the open source driver, you can bet it'll work for 15 kHz.

You'll have to download the updated binary and install it manually.

With regards to the 6970, it should work fine, provided you target the right output in the boot kernel line.

With regards to controls not working, etc., yeah, I'm afraid that's a Linux feature. Basically with Linux, you're on your own. If you're experienced enough to know how to deal with problems when they happen (and they will) then you're lucky and it's your system. Otherwise, better try Windows, where controls just work, etc. We envisioned a sort of plug-and-play distro that would be easier to get working than Windows, but unfortunately the world is too complex for that to work without a full-time-dedicated team behind.

I'm not a great expert but I've always replaced the mame executable and recreated the mame.ini. everything has always worked.

Thanks - I've managed to do that withearlier versions of groovymame - just unpack the groovymame bz2 file in usr/games/bin (i think that's what is was) and it worked. However, on newer versions it unpacks, but then mame won't load. maybe something to do with permissions? i'll have a look.

EDIT: I've changed the permissions so they match the version of groovymame that does work, but it still won't load. Any other suggestions or ideas please?

I tried right now with 0183, after updating QT5 to the 5.8.3 version (the new mame needs this) and did the update with sudo pacman -Syuu everything works. the executable groovymame should be put in / usr / local / bin and mame.ini after you create should be moved in / home / arcade

Yes you are right. The version from the google drive is created with a fully updated groovyarcade distribution (or Arch Linux).

If you need to check the required library version you can use the command "ldd groovymame".

Here is the output for a NON updated OS version:

Thanks for the repond i havent tested frather through because of homework but i think just some libraries need to updated . If im correct mame on linux uses some open source HID library for input (Xorg i think)

Thanks - I updated as suggested, and groovymame worked straight away at 15khz! But then when i restarted the system, advancmenuplus loaded OK, but then groovymame did not output a 15khz signal anymore  ???

Is the GroovyArcade-Arch2016.07.02-x86_64 ISO the most recent update? I thought there was a newer one with the Attractmode bug fixed, but can't find it.

Try substituting again the executable mame, perhaps the upgrade has replaced your mame with the normal version. However to use normally attract mode you can set in the Configure/Miscellaneous options "Enable multi monitors to NO and Window mode to Full Screen Mode", it worked for me. Unfortunately, what you have is the latest version of groovyarcade and if you want to upgrade it needs a bit of adjustments, but is always great  ;)

Thanks very much - I'll try that fix for Attractmode!

Attractmode working great now, and updateed to MAME 178!

But I can't figure out how to set up high scores  :banghead:

I've got the plugins folder from the windows release. Can anyone share their mame.ini and plugins.ini please, along with where the plugins folder is supposed to be! Thanks very much.

The plugin folder is the same, put it in /home/arcade/, in mame.ini you need to activate the plugins (usually is already active)
Code: [Select]
#
# CORE MISC OPTIONS
#
plugins                   1
in the same place you need the file plugin.ini, in this file you need to activate the hiscore
Code: [Select]
#
# PLUGINS OPTIONS
#
hiscore                   1
the default is 0
the folder "hi" is present by default, here the file will be created for each game

I'm upgrading the PC in my 13 years old mame cabinet and am having trouble with GA.  I've got a WG D9200 monitor and a Arcadevga 5000 that's replacing the original AVGA.  I know I would be better off with just a regular compatible ATI card with Groovymame and Switchres but at the time I ordered the AVGA 5000 I was planning to recreate what I already had.  I used GroovyArcade live-CD Release 2016 64bit on a usb stick to do the HD installation to an SSD. I had various issues after trying to immediately update to groovymame .184.  I wiped the SSD and reinstalled GA with gm .171.  and am just testing with the included roms.  I find Attract-Mode and Wahcade both hang when exiting from a game.  Based on earlier posts this seems to have been a past problem at least for Attract-Mode.  Any fix for this?

I seem to have a DISPLAY setting issue if I drop to the shell from gasetup and try to run groovymame "/usr/local/bin/groovymame -v alienar" I get "Can't open display" errors and a segmentation fault. See attached alienar.txt for full output. Attract-Mode from the commandline core dumps with a "Failed to open X11 display; make sure the DISPLAY environment variable is set correctly" message.  Wahcade from the commandline core dumps with a long list of display errors. How do I run these from the command line?

If I do upgrade with "pacman -Syyu" so that gm .184 will run (QT5 lib error otherwise) will that break output to my D9200?  It seemed to but I could have changed some other setting. After bios messages there was no signal to the D9200.

New version 2017.

In the root / ati folder, there is driver for vga, if you have problems install the different versions to check.  "pacman -U driver-name"

Attractmode is not tested, report faults or new configurations.

Now X starts with openbox for multi-resolution, Thanks Doozer.

I've found a bug when you start the first time, cursor stays on the screen only, you have to focus with the mouse or close X and enter again.

I was doing some test with the new release and I noticed a remarkably worst performance, for example, wrally with the previous release run at 100% now goes to 69/70%, I also tried to replace the groovymame version with the previous 171 and it does not change. What has determined this deterioration of performance? I'm testing them on a virtual machine, not on real hardware.

this is awesome. Thank you for all the work.

I am a bit behind.. Can you prevent people from exiting the front end?

My kids hold the Player One Start and hit Button #1 to exit a game and if they do it more than once it registers as multiple esc key hits which exits the frontend to the setup menu... Then they scream daaaaaaddddd. Daaaaadddd its not working.

To be fair adults at parties do the same thing.

Ok thank you guys again for all the hard work!

Re-configure the front-end to ignore the ESC key.

I'm having problems with 2017 Groovy Arcade image.
Both booting live from USB and using HDD installation I'm running into the same problem:
the CLI and games work fine on Sony Trinitron SCART TV using self made VGA2SCART adapter, but every frontend does not support 15khz.
When frontend loads I can swap cables for LCD monitor and the picture is showing. I have tried setting different custom resolutions for Xorg/frontend though gasetup CLI. The video card is ATI HD7790 using DVI-I 1 port through VGA adapter.

P.S. the link to the manual on the googlecode site is broken.

EDIT: OK I've read the topic a bit further and see that you are aware that wiki is destroyed by google.

I've solved my problem. The thing that helped me is that xrandr command output was "Can't open display" and that confirmed that Xorg video driver is not set up.

I have edited xorg.conf:

Maybe the only thing that was necessary was to change the output.

After not having much luck with GroovyArcade live-CD Release 2016 a few weeks ago I tried the new  GroovyArcade live-CD Release 2017.  I found Attract-Mode and Wahcade both no longer hang when exiting from a game which is an improvement. However I have found a new problem.  The mouse control does not work correctly for me.  For example if I launch Missile Command or Centipede, mouse control seems limited to a small square.  I can use the keyboard to move the cursor to a different area of the screen and the small box of mouse control is around this new location.  I downloaded the 184 and 185 executables from the google drive location and replaced GA version of the groovymame executable in /usr/local/bin with each of these to test.  If I use advance menu plus to launch Centipede or Missile Command they have proper mouse control.  However Attract mode will launch the game but it locks up as the initial screen is displayed.  I have to ctrl-alt-F2 to another terminal and kill groovymame to get out of the game.  I also tried editing the .xinitrc replacing the frontend on the last line with "groovymame centiped3". Now gasetup would launch directly to into centipede with the same results in that the ga version of groovymame did not have proper mouse control while the google drive versions 184 and 185 do.  If Attractmode would work with either of these executables I would be in decent shape.

Do you select 15khz dvi option from boot menu?
If you do not select right option, script does not work to configure.

We know that problem, you need to use groovymame version no wiimote.

Where do I get this? I didn't see it on the GroovyArcade or Groovymame/UME google drive locations unless it's the older groovymame64_0171.015m_wiimote_linux.tar.bz2 release.

Hi PhoneGuy,

I will provide a build including no Xinput dependency (aka wiimote). Give it a try and check if it solves your issue.

I will give it a try once you post it.  Is this different than 184 version you have on google drive now?  It does not include "lightgun_index1  WiiMote0" settings and it works for me other than it locks up if launched with Attract-Mode.  No mouse issues and Wahcade and AdvanceMenuPlus launch it fine.

I have made a version for 0.185 "groovymame64_0185.017b_wiimote_linux_LCD_BLACKFRAME.tar.bz2" (51.4MB), available here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B1vsJyOrRLuceENhSE5xM2VQcmM

This build is different in the XINPUT aspect (NO_USE_XINPUT = 0)

Your issue seems to be more related to attract-mode handling the wiimote.

Hi.
I uploaded a new iso with groovymame 185 no wiimote support, internal fix GroovyArcade for install, and others options.
Usb2joystick 20 pin support.

If there were lag, edit xorg file /etc/X11/xorg.conf

and delete "Option "ShadowPrimary" "on""

Here is what I found with the "groovymame64_0185.017b_wiimote_linux_LCD_BLACKFRAME.tar.bz2" build

From a command line in a terminal from the LXDE desktop:  The limited mouse movement problem.
From Wahcade: limited mouse movement.
From Advmenu: limited mouse movement.
From Attract: No mouse control but mame does not freeze at launch.

Could you kindly elaborate more on how limited mouse movement materialises?

Same symptoms as I posted earlier:

For example if I launch Missile Command or Centipede, mouse control seems limited to a small square.  I can use the keyboard to move the cursor to a different area of the screen and the small box of mouse control is around this new location.

These executables do not have the mouse issue.  They cause mame to freeze when launched with attract-mode:
groovymame64_0184.017b_linux_LCD_FIX.tar.bz2
groovymame64_0185.017b_linux_LCD_FIX.tar.bz2
A 184 gm executable I complied and saved when I tried linuxmint-18.1-cinnamon-64bit.

It sounds weird to me. I am using the (0184.017b_linux_LCD_FIX and 0185.017b_linux_LCD_FIX) and I do not have issue with AttractMode and Mame. I am using the Git version of attract and it runs smoothly.
I provide you my attract binary, please give it a try (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1vsJyOrRLucSTFqNUxaM1ZGNXc).

This attract binary does the same thing.  In particular pacman comes up with the splash screen with the rom and resolution info and appears frozen.   I did find that if I ctrl-alt-f2 to another terminal window and kill attract then ctrl-alt-f1 back to the still running mame screen I can then right/left and the game finishes loading and is playable. If I change nothing but having attract-mode use the original 184 grooveymame binary included with groovyarcade then the game does not freeze but there is no mouse control.
