Hi ..

My testting conf :

- Original intervideo chassis vp250.
- Original CRT 25" videocolor.

What i have tested is that it is only working with 320x240eS. If i am using 320x240S then i get bios boot and when boot linux i get no image ..

Now i checked. 640x480eS . but no luck :'( :'(
I have attached my atom1.5 BIOS modification...
Thanks ..

Hi Substring .  Sorry for my repeating question .

My config :
 
Original chassis intervideo vp 250. CRT controller.
Original CRT videocolor 25.
PC Intel core DUO 2,6 GHZ 2GB RAM and HD4450 modified by ATOM v1.5. My vga to crt cable it is a selfmade cable with 2x 1k resistors for the H/V sync. This cable works with other CRT TV that i have tested.

The only working resolusion for me it's 320x240Se. I have tested 640x480Si and Se .. And others..

Maybe it is a problem of my chassis .. but this chassis works with other original arcades ( snow bros and pang.).
I can play mame at 320x240 .. but frontend looks uggly...


Thanks for all ..

Sorry i made a mistake ..

if i use in the syslinux.cfg the parameter video=VGA-1:320x240eS , my monitor intervideo WORKS .. Only with this resolution.
Meanwhile i have installed version GroovyArcade-Arch2018.03.04-x86_64. All works ..

Maybe some problem in kernel and my graphic card ...
Also i have tested groovymame  2019 latest version .. It get stuxks when start x11 ... But this problem i have before also when using small tv's..
Thanks ..

Why bother with another video mode if 320x240 works ?

Hi Substring ..

First of all would like to thank you :applaud: for your great patiente  .. I am new with this of the arcade world ... 

The problem that i have with 320x240 resolution it's that i see the letters of the commandline and gasetup like in a zoom mode .. very big letters (aprox size letter 25) so i can only read part of the commandline and gasetup .. and attrack mode menus are without definition(uggly).
After a lot of testing , i decided to use your latest distro , i am going to explain the whole precess that i used:


a) I have boot with a usb pen with distro groovyarcade-2020.04-x86_64.iso
b) In boot menu i have selected VGA-1_15khz.
c) Everything it is ok , but screen gets black. Suddenly message appears ( if i can see the image or something similar , and  press ok) and starts the voice guidance .. when system switched on the vga i see a screen  message and press ok.
d) Then it automatically selects VGA-1. Later i selected monitor generic 15khz. the first option.
e) Install the distro to my hardisk.
f) Reboots the system.
g) Now letters are super big. but i can see something.
h) In gasetup i enter to change resolution .. now i can select 6 types of resolution-- 320x240, 320x388 640x4xx. etc .. i SELECT 640x480 Interlaced.. and restarted.
i) Now works .. i can see the letters and images in gasetup correctly .. screen are perfect.
Looking at the sysconfig.cfg now i have this mode .. video=VGA-1:640x480iSe ...  :applaud:

Now i have a good resolution in attrack mode and command liine.

Thanks Substring for your great help .. and continue with your great work of porting this linux arcade system ...  :applaud: :applaud:

Bye

Good new here too =) It's easter and all so the easter bunny must have delivered.
Thanks for all the help!

Anyway, I also got it to work when I added the  video=VGA-1:320x240eS in syslinux.cfg.
This forced an output on the vga.

So to recap what I did:
Using the groovyarcade 2020.03 iso.
HW: intel i5 computer with AMD HD4550(with atom15).

During install using an Lcd monitor connected to the vga port.
But later on using an arcade crt monitor 15khz 320x240 resolution.

1. Install as instructed.
2. After reboot ,ssh into the machine, generate a new EDID that works with 320x240 to get the right resolution after reboot.
sudo switchres 320 240 60 --edid --monitor "generic_15"
sudo mv generic_15.bin /usr/lib/firmware/edid/generic_15p.bin
sudo nano /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
Added the in the end of FILES= on row 19, /usr/lib/firmware/edid/generic_15p.bin
 This will give a build error, later on, if there is something wrong here, which I experienced.
sudo nano /boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg fixed the drm.edid_firmware=VGA-1:edid/generic_15p.bin monitor=generic_15
 sudo mkinitcpio -p linux-15khz
3. Also add video=VGA-1:320x240eS in the end of the syslinux.cfg
4. Reboot.

To note that the switchres may need a new version

You may also enable groovyarcade testing repo (edit /etc/pacman.d/groovy-ux-repo.conf and remove # on the 3 first lines), run sudo pacman -Sy switchres, confirm you want to upgrade.You now have a good version of switchres that can build a 320x240 edid like explained earlier.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong here, Substring, but the new version of switchres will be included in the next release or ?

New switchres will of course be un the coming release. But the package has been pushed in the stable repo, so it's easy to update, no need of editing any file

Hi .. to all ..

Finally i have this supperb emulation machine GroovyArcade 2020 working with MAME and  my jamma usb conversor model 3H Dual Arcade. If you want to use it , you need to add in the syslinux.cfg file the next line at the end of the kernel parameter line beginning with append ...  usbhid.quirks=0x16c0:0x75e1:0x40 .
Then you can use the double player option for this jamma usb conversor ...  :) . If not it is detected as only one player.

Also, how can upgrade my distro to the latest one without reinstalling ?
And if i wanted to add snes , msx , amiga , etc ... emulation it is there a tutorial .. or a recommended guide ?

Thanks for all .. And GREAT JOB..

USB quirks, yeah, I could make this a little more plug'n'play (I have a bunch of quirks from past retrogaming projects). They can't be all added, but it's good if you've found out that by yourself.

For upgrades: run sudo pacman -Syu. Most of times, it's safe. I just noticed otoday that an update breaks the GA boot logo ... More work to do to make this normally integrated ...

Now for consoles : I've simply removed anything linked to consoles for a BIG list of reasons and tbh, at the moment, I can't make any support for them, I have way too much to do for GA and other things related to GroovyMAME. You may try your luck with RetroArch that is 15kHz capable, but haven't had time to try it yet.

@golvellius mame supports amiga, msx and snes. Try it. Many people forget that mame and mess merged.

Thank you. I installed it in a laptop with an Intel mobile GM965/GL960. The standart VGA modes of the front-end are correctly displayed, but when it tries to execute an emulator at 15KHz the VGA output is disabled. Any suggestion?

I want to try out GroovyArcade before wiping my drive and installing it.  I should be able to run the frontend from a usb stick right?  I go through the video setup, but then get an error "server terminated with error (1)" when trying to start the frontend.  Also doesn't matter which frontend I choose. 

*fixed*  Downloaded the latest version and it's working now.

Hi All,

I did a fresh install of 2020 and I am having trouble with advmenu. I am unable to load custom layouts using emulator_file_custom or emulator_layout keywords. Please note earlier GroovyArcade CDs worked fine.

What is the correct method for loading external .amp layouts now?

Cheers,
Matt

Hi to all..

I am enjoying a lot this distro. I am using it in mame environment ... ALL PERFECT.

Now i have been playing with retroarch ... I have installed it with pacman app,  and i have some questions .. if someone can help me ...

a) When playing games, snes games as example, i think i am playing 640x480 to the CRT and it is not changing to correct resolution .. I have been reading forums and faqs but there is not too much info .. After touching parameters, sometimes the output of monitor is black, sometimes it is small ... etc .. also coredumps ...  :embarassed:

b) Is possible to use switchres like in  Mame in Retroarch? HOW?

Thanks a lot ...

Is there a changelog for each version of GroovyArcade, or would it be at all possible to update the main post in this thread with the versions in the current release?

Hello,

I noted Ves's post earlier which pointed to the 'latest classic release of GroovyArcade-Arch2020.04.08', and I also read Substrings comment in this thread
[url]http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,161125.40.html]

http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,161125.40.html querying which version of GA was the poster using.

Can I ask therefore if there are different (parallel) versions of the latest GroovyArcade from both Ves and Substring?

Apologies if this is confusing...

Thanks

I could answer, but I'd sound harsh and mean.

Let's just say I've forked VeS' GA and continuously update it following the Arch linux philosophy: continuous kernel updates, ditto groovymame. And all if this is normally updated using the official Arch package manager: pacman.

Substring,

Thanks for your reply.
I actually downloaded and ran with your fork, and so far so good for my setup. While I'm not totally green to linux, the finer points and workings of it still elude me. I have tried and mostly successfully have had GA running for the last few years, albeit with some issues relating to groovyarcade speeds, sound, monitors etc.

I have your GA fork up and running on my setup (ArcadeVGA5000, WG 25K171, and ipac) in under 10 minutes from start to finish, and it looks pretty damn good, and I'm very happy. Thank you for your, and others' contributions here that has allowed this to be possible.
As it is something I've always wanted to learn more about, I'm going to run up a virtual system, and look at least at getting to grips with linux, compiling sources etc, and generally try to expand my knowledge somewhat.

As regards your current fork, how do I ssh to console - I've tried putty but it cannot agree on encryption algorithms (although I've uploaded ROMS fine through WinSCP)?


Thanks again - looks like this will sort my arcade machine out for a long time to come!

Just ssh to the IP, the encryption is negotiated by the client abd server, you don't need to configure anything.

I'm glad you got GA installed that fast, windows can't beat that ! A fully configured CRT Arcade OS in 10mins ^^

yep - I expected the same - however putty is refusing, saying cannot negotiate a common set of encryption algorithms.
In any case, I did what I needed to do via the console (getting name resolution up and running via my local nameserver), so everything is fine in any case.

Thank you again

Hi guys

I have installed GA2019 on a few machines and got it setup perfectly.

I thought I would try the GA2020 on a new machine, and while it's installed OK, I cannot SSH into it with Cyberduck.

I can SSH via terminal on OS X.

Any ideas? I want to copy my files and settings from old to new...

Also is there an easy way to update the GA2019 machines with GA2020?

Thank you

-------

EDIT: I had a hideously outdated version of Cyberduck on my laptop. Yuk!!!!! I hadn't realsised as it had always worked whenever I used it. I copied the newer version from my iMac and now can SSG. There's an evening wasted...

If anyone knows if GA2019 can be updated to GA2020 without a clean install, please let me know how! Thank you!

Last I knew, the update features were incomplete/broken. Check out the collaboration version of GroovyArcade. Updates in that are working and constantly being updated.

Intel sound issues? alsamixer wont run - worked previously
« Reply #1027 on: July 03, 2020, 05:59:40 pm »
Hello there wonderful arcade enthusiast folks!
I have been using GroovyArcade pretty much since the beginning, or at least before AM got added as a frontend option.
I'm generally pretty handy with my Linux-fu, especially within the confines of the GroovyArcade release cycle.
I generally don't have troubles upgrading the binaries, or diving into the configs and tweaking.
I even managed to get Daphne working a while back, but I have a hard time playing those games.
 
I seemed to find the best success with the 2018 iso - and I've been using that for a while, but it runs GM0.195
I decided to get my sets up to date and current and whatnot, and also noticed that there was a newer release from April of this year.

Anyhow, I went through the typical install - Ive been using surplus Dell Optiplex 755s for years without issue.
With this latest release, I have no (perceptible) sound. I am unable to run alsamixer - I get an error "cannot open mixer: Invalid argument"

So i hooked everything up to an LCD screen in an area with a network connection (alas, no cat5 runs to my cabinets in the garage)
and tried reinstalling alsa-utils, alsa-libs, alsa-drivers - to no avail.
I messed with the .asoundrc file and didnt really yield any results.
So i decided i would update the system by running pacman -Syu
Well, it seems that worked and i had sound quite clearly and was able to run games......on LCD
However, when putting the Atom-15 flashed card in there, i get a blank screen (i see the bios,no OS)

So i restarted the entire install (many times at this point) in my cabinet, and ran a CAT5 to it so i run the update on the system as it will be in the cabinet (It's a DigDug, btw)

Same results - after the update and reboot, I see the BIOS screen, then no OS loads - i just get a blank screen.

Could it be that the kernel updated and blew out the 15Khz patches?

Then i stumbled across a few of these threads, regarding issues of no sound after updating to kernel 5.6.2...
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=254408

And another this time with 5.6.14 i think
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=256070

So i used uname to get the installed kernel version and it is 5.6.2

It seems like this issue has been resolved in a newer kernel, but i am not sure how to make the Groovy-ness persist.

Should i just wait for the next release, or is there something that i may be overlooking(thinking) that i could do?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. If I can provide any additional info, i can oblige.

Thanks!

I shouldn't be saying that, but .... https://github.com/substring/os/releases/latest is a much more up to date distro ... Made by someone else (well ... me heh). Give a try as a livecd, no need to install even.

Hi, since I am using a J-PAC with the default keys. When I am in the Attract-Mode front-end or inside a game and accidentally press the button 1 + the button 2 + the right or left direction, I go into desktop selection mode. I also checked with the keyboard and pressing CTRL + ALT + arrow does the same thing. Is it possible to disable this function? I am using the Substring release.
I don't want to configure the keys differently, I prefer to leave the default ones of MAME.

Thx!

What information do you need?

I'll show you a photo of the control panel, so maybe it's easier to understand. Practically the J-PAC interface associates keyboard keys with each buttons or stick. I wanted to leave the default ones, so that they match MAME. Without changing anything.

When I press the right or left stick + button 1 + button 2, a small window appears in graphics with the possibility of switching the desktop windows 1, 2, 3 and 4.
if you try on the keyboard (CTRL + ALT + right or left arrow), you will see that window will appear.

By information I meant which file you need to edit, and what to remove ;)

I did some internet research about Openbox. I found this guide:
http://xahlee.info/linux/linux_lxde_add_key_shortcuts.html

If you scroll to the end, there is a section called "Remove Keys":
To remove keys, just delete the proper section.
For example, i want to remove Ctrl+Alt+→ (because i need it for emacs). I delete the following:

Code: [Select]
<keybind key="C-A-Left">
  <action name="DesktopLeft">
    <dialog>no</dialog>
    <wrap>no</wrap>
  </action>
</keybind>

<keybind key="C-A-Right">
  <action name="DesktopRight">
    <dialog>no</dialog>
    <wrap>no</wrap>
  </action>
</keybind>

<keybind key="C-A-Up">
  <action name="DesktopUp">
    <dialog>no</dialog>
    <wrap>no</wrap>
  </action>
</keybind>

<keybind key="C-A-Down">
  <action name="DesktopDown">
    <dialog>no</dialog>
    <wrap>no</wrap>
  </action>
</keybind>

I have to go edit the file "~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml"?

No. I set AM as the default boot on GAsetup.

Problem solved! The correct file is "/etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml"

I commented on this whole part:
<!-- Keybindings for desktop switching -->
  <!--
  <keybind key="C-A-Left">
    <action name="GoToDesktop"><to>left</to><wrap>no</wrap></action>
  </keybind>
  <keybind key="C-A-Right">
    <action name="GoToDesktop"><to>right</to><wrap>no</wrap></action>
  </keybind>
  -->

I quit from AM with ALT+F4 and restarted it immediately. The key combination was no longer active!
