We've created the new site Eiusdemmodi, at http://geedorah.com/eiusdemmodi/forum/index.php

This will be the official site for CRT Emudriver and its related tools: VMMaker & Arcade OSD, so here you will always find the latest versions for Download.

Besides, you will find Documentation and Support sections, which we expect to eventually become a complete reference for the usage of these tools, as well as other topics regarding video emulation accuracy.

Last but not least, this is a place for Discussion on everything related to emulation accuracy, emulators other than MAME, home systems, CRTs, lag issues, etc.

Support for GroovyMAME/UME and all related topics will continue as usual here in BYOAC.

In our opening, we present the following news:

  • New versions of CRT Emudriver, VMMaker & Arcade OSD, for both Windows XP and Windows 7. Full support for Windows 7 and lots of bug fixes for XP and 7.

  • Brand new tool ATOM-15 : ATI/AMD Radeon ATOMBIOS 15/25/31 kHz Modder.


NOTE: Due to spam prevention, forum registration may be eventually disabled. If you want to register an account and get that or another problem, our contact address is postbackweb at yahoo dot com.

I am impressed, well done.

Unfortunately I do not have a recent card with AtomBIOS fw to give it a try now.

By the way, I did not spot any EDID related section in the source code. Do you know if the modification will allow the BIOS/EFI boot to honour the EDID modeline?

Cheers

About ATOM-15: a critical bug affecting older Radeon cards (the X series at least) has been found and fixed. There's a new version 1.1. Please make sure to update and DO NOT flash the X series with the old version! Users of HD models don't need to worry, it's just a problem related to older models.

Thanks to ID4 for reporting this.

OMG!!

That ATOM-15 tool sounds absolutely incredible! If I patch my HD4650's BIOS with this, I literally have zero reason to use my AVGA now.

ATOM-15 is extremely exciting.

Pardon me for not checking, but is this open source? As a long time Linux user, an eventual Linux port would be great.

I'll be testing it out in WINE soon, either way.

Hi,

thanks a lot Calamity for the driver and the BIOS patcher !  :applaud:

I'm facing an "EDID" issue with my Radeon HD4850 on Win7 x64 :
The only way for me to get valid15Khz modes is to plug an LCD screen until windows has booted and then replace it with my CRT (Hantarex 9110).

If i boot directly with my CRT plugged in, i've got a blacksceen when windows has loaded up.

Is there any workaround for this issue actually ?
Do you think this VGA EDID emulator could do the job ?

Regards

Hi,

what is the difference between "Set as desktop mode" and "Set as default display mode" in Arcade OSD ?

Hi,

what is the difference between "Set as desktop mode" and "Set as default display mode" in Arcade OSD ?

Regards

"Set as desktop mode" applies to the current display device, e.g. "\\.\DISPLAY1", while "Set as default display mode" applies to the generic default display device "\\.\DISPLAY". I added the second one in an attempt to get it working on cards with monitor detection issues.

Getting an error message in atom-15.exe when patching the rom from my ATI HD 4800.

Any advice?

Sorry to bump my request for help, but I don't know where else to turn to diagnose this error. My whole project is on hold until I find a solution.

Update: Calamity has contacted me and is looking at my ROM file.

Please don't use this thread to request support. This thread was just to announce the new Eiusdemmodi site.

No bacause registration does not give me option to set password. I assume that I set it through email which I can't receive.

However when I use option restore password forum informs me that there no user associated with my email.

EDIT.

Problem bypassed, thanks for help Calamity :)
