Dual screen issue
« on: August 20, 2017, 03:26:44 pm »
Hi All.


I've just upgraded to Groovymame 171, I know it's still old but it works well with my system.. anyway Outrunners keeps booting to daul screen.

Now ini settings was numscreens 2 on the older GM but with GM 172 it crashes

I only want the game to boot with a single display

Of course I've tab video screen 0 but if I start the cab it goes back to daul screen

I have played around with ini file but I'm can't work it out

I appreciate any help

Tried the silly stuff like checked the ini is not read only? No second file overwriting?

I away on hols back now... well checked ini files there are set correctly

But issues with numscreen 2 ini

Which are set for outrunners, mega drive, nes games that have two screens
Now with Groovymame 160 this was no probs but since switching to GM 171 is causes an error

How do set any game with two displays e.g Outrunners, Shinobi megatech, super punch out, nes playmore
To display on screen via the a dedicated ini file

Numscreens 2 does not work

I'm on XP32 running GM 171

Thanks again for any help
