qq, I'd love to try out the Cave speed benefits of 191 but there is still no official linux release been put out. Would the 190 groovymame diff be fine to use with the 191 mame source if I wanted to roll my own? Sorry if this has been asked before it's just I'd love to compile it this weekend and wanted to know before I try.

Thanks,

Strontium

Patch 190 needs only small modification to make it work with 191 source.

I attached my modified source.

GroovyMAME 0.192 is out!

What's new in SwitchRes v0.017f (November 2017):

- (Windows) Fixed bug that caused GM to crash with Direct3D9Ex when no suitable video mode mode was found.

- Added new monitor preset for 15.7/31.5 kHz dual-sync monitors (arcade_15_31).
Important note: posts reporting GM issues without a log will be IGNORED.
Steps to create a log:
 - From command line, run: groovymame.exe -v romname >romname.txt
 - Attach resulting romname.txt file to your post, instead or pasting it.

If you leave -video auto (default) D3D9ex will be picked automatically too. You only need to edit the -monitor option these days.

That log corresponds to a pinball that is reported as non-working by MAME. Is that correct?

I feel really embarrassed having to ask this but which version of groovymame should I download? d3d9ex? Or the non-d3d9ex one? I am using a genuine arcade monitor with Ultimarc i/o stuff and CRTEmudriver on a Windows 10 core i7 machine if any of that makes a difference.

Also I am upgrading from groovymame 189. Is it OK if I used the same mame.ini (took me forever to set up) or did the mame.ini also change and I will have to replace it for 192?

Thanks all :)

EDIT: Never mind.  I see that I should use the same version as my MAME.  Thanks. 

If my ROMset is 0.185, should I download the v 0.185 GroovyMAME?  or the newest?

Well, yes... but if you ask me you'd better get the latest GM and do an incremental upgrade of your roms up to the latest version. We can't tell you how.

Would that entail periodically downloading just the newest GM executable and replacing the ROMs I own with new versions?

That's what we all do once we learn. Sticking to a special treasure romset is a typical beginner mistake (not meaning you're a beginner).

OK so I upgraded my groovymame from 189 to 192 and now I am having an issue where my custom vertical.ini file is being ignored.

Basically I set it up so that vertical games like Pac Man, Donkey Kong, etc. resized themselves a bit because way too much information was missing from the top and bottom of my arcade CRT. I loved the way I had it set up. But now after upgrading, it's back to showing those games where I am missing a ton of information on screen.

I checked my vertical.ini and all my info is still in there.

Hell, I even pasted the data from vertical.ini into crt_range0 in mame.ini and it ignores it even there!

Any ideas what I could have screwed up? I followed the OP exactly. I downloaded the newest mame, extracted it to my old mame folder, and then downloaded groovymame, and extracted that to my old mame folder.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm not sure what the specific cause of your problem is, but you should always start with an empty folder.  Extract the official MAME release into that empty folder first.  Then extract groovymame into the folder with the new copy of MAME.  Create a brand new mame.ini file with groovymame -cc   and then configure as necessary.

Copying over an old installation is a recipe for problems.

You probably didn't set -monitor custom in mame.ini.

My recent GM packages already contain the whole MAME folder, not just the .exe. Even mame.ini is included now.

Thank you! That fixed it. I don't remember doing that for 189 so I guess it's a new requirement?

Also the OP should be updated that we no longer have to download the regular MAME :)

When updating groovymame is it safe to keep my old mame.ini so I don't have to redo it every time? Or does mame.ini usually change a bit with mame updates?

Would the R7 250 be a safe choice for 15kHz RGB Scart European CRT TV? (Only CRT tv.) As good as Radeon 7000 to the HD 7xxx cards (they are especially recommended at the beginning of this topic)? Thanks!

It's definitely possible for mame.ini options to change from one version to the next as well as the way it interprets the values in those options.  I seem to recall reading somewhere that if you have an existing mame.ini file (from an older version) in the directory and you issue the   mame64.exe -cc     command, it will consume the existing mame.ini before writing out the new mame.ini with the end result that any valid options in the old file are transferred over to the new file.   I haven't tried this myself to verify and I guess it's possible that an old now-invalid option could cause MAME to crash during the process, but it's certainly worth a try if it works most of the time.
