error in win32 mame.exe
« on: March 09, 2002, 11:09:00 pm »
im recently tired running the normal win32 mame binary(mame.exe), after previously using the DOS version. i switched b/c arcadeFX must use the win32 version. so i was going to run it regularly(not w/i AFC) to make sure it worked. i had the roms and everything and i went into the DOS prompt to run it. it started alright and it said the files that were loading but then it didnt start the game it instead displayed this message:

"Error setting Directdraw capabilities: 80070057
Exception at EIP=007CB854:ACCESS VIOLATION
while attempting to read memory at FFFFFFFF"

am i running this inncorrectly, what am i doing wrong? i am not used to the win32 version. anyways thanks in advance.

upgrade or change your display drivers or download a newer version of directX
