Just confirmed that MAME v0.198 has working cocktail P2 screen flipping for Asteroids and Asteroids Deluxe, just like the original PCB.    :w00t

- In the MAME "Machine Configuration" menu set Cabinet to Cocktail.

- In the MAME "Video Options" menu select any video option EXCEPT Cocktail.

Special thanks to MAME Dev ajrhacker who added this feature and thanks to Haze for relaying the info to him.   :applaud:

that's great news for cocktail builders.  Does it flip the overlay, too?

Cocktail shouldn't have an overlay.
Acceptance of Zen philosophy is marred slightly by the nagging thought that if all things are interconnected, then all things must be in some way involved with Pauly Shore.

I assume you mean the wood-grain cocktail bezel from the layout (.LAY) file, right?

The artwork from the Mr. Do's In-Game Arcade Artwork or Other Artwork layout file doesn't flip, only the vector display.

In the Video Options menu, you can select any option, but beware that the "Cocktail" option is just a fake vertical WS cocktail display with one screen at the top oriented to P2's POV.

It should be possible to make a custom vertical WS layout with 2 screens with the same orientation.
(For some reason, MAME can't do 2 screens with different orientations for vector games.   :banghead:)
