Hey all,

I was interested in adding a crt emu driver compatible video card to my main box. I was wanting to run my main LCDs on my GTX 1080, while using an older ATI card to output to a small CRT. Anyone doing this? I was looking to see if anyone had before I dive deep and try myself.

Thanks my dudes,

-stell

Got it working, albeit with some random blue screens. About every time I attempted to add modelines to the driver, the computer would lock up or blue screen with a WHEA error.

I have an odd setup though. Running a GTX 1080 conected to a 144HZ monitor, and a Radeon 4550 connected to a Sony 14L2 PVM.

Now I was curious if it's possible to run GroovyMAME in full screen without taking priority over my mouse/keyboard input?

Ideally i'd like to run GroovyMAME in full screen on the PVM with USB gamepad input, while I still use my desktop on my primary video card/monitor.

Doubt this is a groovymame only problem since the app is taking priority, as I'm sure any full screen app would do this that wasn't running in a borderless window.

Thanks

I think that mame -video bgfx runs in a bordless window.

Ya...doesn't look like there is a good option for this. I can only imagine setting the desktop of the CRT to the specific resolution of one game and run it in borderless mode. I guess i'll just have to run a separate box to do what I want...

GM has a modification for -video bgfx that forces it to run in fullscreen exclusive mode. There's no way to do what OP wants to do. Fullscreen exclusive means exactly that.
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.
