Audio, video setting and dual monitors
« on: November 17, 2018, 08:57:02 am »
Hi guys, I have a couple of questions. I hope you don't mind.

1. Lots of games have audio problems, whereas I think this is probably down to the rom or MAME, is there anything I can do to improve it? I have found things about ASIO but seems outdated. I have also come across this (use google translate), but not sure if it is still recommended today.

2. Under OSD VIDEO OPTIONS, many people recommended to use "video d3d9ex". Mine is "video auto" and when I changed it to "video d3d9ex", nothing worked. I assume that this is no longer needs changing?

3. If I want to use two monitors, one physically rotated vertically and another placed horizontally... if all of my VMM settings are set to horizontal, can I just use the vertical.ini to make all vertical games display vertically (then I can use a VGA switch to use the vertical monitor). Currently, every time I want to switch from the horizontal to vertical monitor I am having to change all VMM settings which is a pain. I have seen Calamity's post here: but will GM detect if a horizontal or vertical game is launched and output the correct orientation for each individual game? A bit confused :)

Cheers guys!
