Notes on compiling GM for newbies (like me  :laugh:)

- MKChamp's suppression patches are here: http://mamestuff.lowtrucks.net/MKChamp/ , there is a new one for version 0.179 (download and rename .txt to .diff)

- If you are installing in a location other than the default (c:\msys64 or c:\msys32), after you unpack run autorebase.bat

- Use this detailed guide here: http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=348.0 but apply the different patches with the following order and pay attention to the patch command that changes for the suppression .diff

a. 0179_groovymame_016_alpha3.diff with command: patch -p0 -E <0179_groovymame_016_alpha3.diff
b. d3d9ex.diff with command: patch -p0 -E <d3d9ex.diff
c. suppression_0179u0.diff with command: patch --binary -p0 -E <suppression_0179u0.diff

- If you want to make an arcade-only exe (like mame before mess/ume) then use the "SUBTARGET=arcade" option, like this for example: "make SUBTARGET=arcade -j5"

Here is a download link for groovymame64_0179.016_alpha3_d3d9ex with the suppression patch: http://www.mediafire.com/file/4x5jwkbha98557w/GroovyMame64_0179.016_alpha3_d3d9ex_suppression0179-k.rar

The user oomek has measured a consistent latency increase when comparing the old 0.171 build with current versions of GM, even when using Direct3D 9Ex and frame delay. Fortunately we have probably found the source of problem on a change in the code base made a few months ago.

There's a new test build on the drive that performs as good as 0.171 latency-wise, according to oomek's measurements: groovymame64_0179.016_alpha3_d3d9ex_test

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.

So this is a different issue than the std::chrono::high_resolution_clock issue?

Yes, and we still need to check if it affects baseline as well before we report it to MAMEdev.

My testing confirmed an issue with mame's input polling. There are two builds in the 0.179 folder. Alwayspoll which fixes the hid lag and d3d9ex test which reduces the lag even more if you set the frame_delay to 1

The input lag reduction is massive comparing to the original mame. It's around 60-70 ms

Thanks for your hard work.

Tough i am a little lost here.  I have 0179 alpha 3 installed now in my cab with windows 10 and an AVGA 3000.

To which one would be better to update:  alpha3_d3d9ex test? or 0179_always_poll? to get better experience and less lag...

so there was a little delay in 0179 alpha 3... i could feel something compared to 0149 i had installed in parallel before. Playing wboy in 0149 felt like less lag... maybe i was paranoid about that.. but now i think you are confirming that 0179  has more lag that previous groovymame verisions..

Thanks again :)

Always poll version is just an original mame with tweaked input polling by Calamity to allow me to investigate the delays. Get groovymame64_0179.016_alpha3_d3d9ex_test.7z and enjoy d3dx9ex benefits and faster input polling. You just set video to d3d and frame_delay > 0 and vsync_offset accordingly.

Thank you so much for clarifying this..

Amazing! i will be testing that version...

D3Dex is only for Vista and above so this version will not work on XP.

haynor666 is correct about the D3D9ex version.

I have uploaded some 32-bit binaries in the meantime in case someone finds them usefull - they don't include the latest code that helps reduce latency, once Calamity releases something I'll post binaries

BTW, are there any benefits to use 64bit version (such to install a win xp 64 on to my cab)?

From mine experience it works even worse that XP x32. At least with Radeon cards.

In mame.ini can you help me to take a test? In my GM I set

full_screen_gamma 0.7
gamma 0.7
(but what differences are between these two?)

Ok, problem is that these settings are too strong: is it possible to the first will add to second? In my cab, brightness is too "strong" and if I low brightness trimmer it darken image too much while mame.ini brightness is more accurate. So, what best setting is in your tests?

Now I'm trying GM 0.179 arcade ("no nag" compiled version posted by keropi).

GroovyMAME v0.180 is out (Switchres v0.016 alpha 4):

What's new in SwitchRes v0.016 alpha 4 (December 2016)

- Full implementation of dynamic mode switching on the BGFX renderer (D3D11 backend). Now it shouldn't crash when launching games from the internal UI. Games that switch video modes dynamically now work.

- Improved dynamic mode switching for -video bgfx (D3D11) and -video d3d (D3D9/D3D9Ex*). Now transitions should be smoother, and the desktop shouldn't flash on the background anymore. There should be a comparative advantage here for D3D9ex (and D3D11) over plain D3D9 since the former doesn't need to destroy and recreate resources upon a mode switch.

- Attempt at reducing input latency, now it should be on a par with previous versions of GM (0.171). Experimental confirmation needed.

* Re-added D3D9Ex support, now as a separate build. Remind using -video d3d even for the D3D9ex build, instead of the old deprecated setting -video d3d9ex.
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.

I'm kind of lost with all those new releases. For a winxp 32 with a Pentium 4 setup what is the best groovymame32_0180 to test? what suppression exactly means? Also d3d9ex works on winxp 32?

Having a compilation error with 180 :( Anyone have any ideas?

Try replacing win->platform_window<SDL_Window*>() by std::static_pointer_cast<sdl_window_info>(win)->platform_window().
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.

@Calamity, the mame_set_focus temporary fix can be dropped from the groovy patch. It is not required anymore thanks to SDL 2.0.5

I have uploaded the Linux build without focus fix.

suppression = no warning/load messages displayed
d3d9ex = works only on vista/7

Thanks for the info.

Heh thanks all for the kind words but let's not forget that the brains behind Groovymame is Calamity. Without him there would be no stuff to compile and post :)

From what I know (and correct me if I am wrong on this) normal D3D11 has a frame queue of 4 frames in it's rendering proccess and D3D9ex only has 1. So right from the start there is an obvious advantage in using D3D9ex.

arcade_only is just mame like in the old days, arcade games only
normal is mame+mess , arcade + consoles + home computers all in one

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I don't mind MAME adding more consoles, but it's been such a hassle for me making a gamelist for a frontend with all the extra stuff.

EDIT: I also noticed that the "GroovyMame32_arcade-only_0180.016_alpha4_suppression0180" mediafire link is the same as the D3D9ex Groovymame32 version. Is that correct or should there be a separate non-D3D9ex version?

I've just compiled GM 0.180 GM with d3d9ex.diff and comapred to the Calamity's build.
The thing I've noticed is that my build is a bit slower (I had to increase vsync_delay) and I wonder why is that.

Also my build is reporting resolution differently.
SwitchRes: [shdancer] (1) horizontal (320x224@57.230000)->(796x448@57.978447)
where Calamity's shows a full number.
SwitchRes: [shdancer] (1) horizontal (320x224@57.230000)->(796x448@58.000000)

Does anyone else have this?

@oomek, you're probably missing the dummy dlls.
