Groovymame won't run with numscreens 2
« on: June 01, 2018, 12:43:36 pm »
I am of course trying to get two monitors to work while running GM .179 . GM works fine with numscreens 1 selected, but when I try to switch to 2, it crashes. Any ideas?

You posted 2 files but no proper useful log.

Anyway, there was a bug preventing multimonitor to work on older versions. Check the "what's new" in the main thread, and update accordingly. Remind only d3d9ex builds will work.


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.

Yeah, that's the old bug I mentioned. Update to a recent version.

(Regarding the log, after running that commabd you should find a dkong.txt file inside mame's folder, that's what you're supposed to attach next time)

Oh yeah Sorry, Here it is . Which version should I go up to ?  It says switchres .017g fixed the problem . Does that mean I need the Latest version of GM?

I think that 0.194 was the first version with Switchres v0.017g.  So GroovyMAME 0.194 or later should do the trick.
