Arcadevga 5000 anygood?
« on: March 18, 2019, 09:54:58 am »
Iím having a hell of a time getting crtemu driver to work right itís always crashing my ox after setup and it undies everything. I was searching around for other options and ran across the arcadevga 5000 card is it any good? Is it easier to setup and run?  For people you use it for you like it does it work good? Iím just looking for other option before I decide to take out the crt and put in an lcd.

I think its a little matter of preference. I had an AVGA 5000 and now have switched to Groovymame
with crt-emudriver.
Setup I think is about the same meaning you have to install video drivers for both and if you
don't get the old drivers uninstalled properly you will run into problems.
I think Groovymame is worth the trouble. You will always have to play with resolutions when trying
to run vertical games on a horizontal monitor no matter which way you go.
Even with AVGA installed you will still have to play with game specific ini's to get playable results for some games.

Good Luck

Try GroovyArcade. It runs groovymame, but there is no messing with installing drivers and such.
