*Resolved* Redream Crt_emudriver = no love
« on: October 03, 2018, 04:48:56 pm »
Hi folks,

Is there anyone in this community that has tried Sega Dreamcasts Redream emulator with Crt_emudriver outside of retroarch and had any luck?  Within RetroArch Redream runs great on my Crt/LCD dual monitor setup. Only problem is that since Redream went non-open source RetroArch hasnít been able to stay current with the coreís emulator updates.  When I try to use Redream on my Crt outside of RetroArch it works as long as it is in Windowed mode.  I can stretch the image to fit my entire screen but doing this every time I want to play a game is a bit of a pain in the butt and kind of kills the front end feel when Iím using Big Box. The second I set it to fullscreen mode the CRT loses sync.  Reicast works fine within RetroArch as well but I have kind of fallen in love with Redream for its simplicity and support.

Has anybody else encountered this issue?  Does anybody have a clue what could be causing this emulator to lose sync when in fullscreen mode only?

Currently running Windows 7, Crt_emudriver 2.0, RetroArch w/multiple cores, I also have VMMaker set to Arcade 15khz .... but Iím running on a crt television .... would this make a difference?  I have tried resolutions of 320x240, 640x480, as well as superresolutions such as 2560x240 and 2560x480 with no love.

Thanks folks,
Prpl_Turtle

Hi,

If not already done, you can try this:

  1 - Stop and Disable service: AMD External events utility
  2 - Ensure that the Windows advanced display option is enable: "hide modes that is monitor cannot display"

Silmalik,

Thank you so much for your advice.  This worked like a charm, no more losing sync with Full Screen enabled.  You are incredible !!  Thanks again
