Sorry for making a new thread but I'm not quite sure where to ask these questions. Feel free to move it to a more appropriate thread if it exists.
Does anyone know of a good GroovyMAME + Linux + CRT configuration guide? Most of the guides I've seen are either very basic, or refer to the Windows version. I tried the GroovyArcade LiveCD but apparently it doesn't support my card so the image isn't stable. So after much trial and error, I managed to get it working with my Ubuntu 16.04 + Geforce 210 + PVM 20M4E + Patched Nouveau drivers combination. I'm running the setup in Zaphodheads mode (HDMI main screen, PVM via VGA to BNC breakout cable)
I followed the instructions in this package:https://github.com/TiBeN/15khz-arcade-pkg
(The documentation is missing info in some areas)
My questions now revolve around next steps regarding GroovyMAME and Monitor configuration. Most guides I see refer to using tools such as VMMaker and Arcade OSD but from what I can tell these tools don't exist on Linux? How can I determine the correct settings for the monitor?
For the per-game configuration, should the ini files go under ~/.mame/ini? How can I tell if it's using the settings correctly?
Which settings should I use for the "videodriver", "renderdriver" and "audiodriver"? Does DirectFB provide any performance benefit? Will changing these settings affect the frame_delay option? (And regarding frame_delay, I surely must be doing something wrong because I don't see any performance difference regardless of the setting)
I am using GroovyMAME 0.179 with the high score patch and Nouveau 1.0.12.
