I have tried Gasetup > setup > video > boot resolution but on my setup its just Monitor, Orientation, Resolution, I don't see boot resolution? I went into Resolution but it just says you don't need to change the resolution

I have a NanoMS31 arcade monitor at 31KHZ

Also I have just done a test and used Handbreak on Imac and converted some of the videos to MP4 constant video, not variable and it looks like the AMD freeze has not happened yet.... still on test Machine will be on all day today

Retroarch won't be shipped with the iso (and probably never will). But installing it through gasetup will be possible with gasetup 1.8.0. This version is already in the testing repo. Anyway, with Retroarch, you'fre good for a full system upgrade

Finally the new 2021.08 iso is available ! Little changes here and there, but the main one is: you can install and configure Retroarch from the setup menu ! Just for a reminder : switchres 2.0 has been integrated into Retroarch since 1.9.5 (1.9.7 is available at the moment). Final Burn Neo standalone is also available (I need to push a fix for super resolutions).

As usual, GroovyArcade provides the minimum settings to make it work for CRT, and leaves as much flexibility as possible to hardwore power users.

For those of you who wonder "Can I upgrade my existing install to get Retroarch ?" the answer is YES! But it all depends on you :
- if your version has system updates from gasetup, just go ahead
- if not, reach a terminal and run sudo pacman -Sy galauncher gasetup gatools. Then run again gasetup, go to the setup menu and Retroarch will be available

One note though: installing Retroarch or Final Burn Neo will force you to make a full system update (because some libraires may become incompatible, so let's not take the risk). If you need assistance, just ask here or on our discord!

@Substring These new additions were amazing, now everything is very easy to add console systems, everything is pre-configured. Thanks and congratulations for the excellent work!

Hi everybody,

It's a pleasure to see that GroovyArcade is still going forward. So, I decided to give it a try and replaced my old 2017 install with the 2021.08. And as I expected, so many things don't work. Before I start to explain more, is this the right thread? If not, could a good soul point me towards the right one?

Thanks. :)

Thanks. I've only used discord once so far. So I'll try my luck here. :)

My hardware is quite antique by now, the graphic card is an ATI Radeon X300. According to hwinfo, the driver is "radeon".
The card has 3 output (DVI, S-Video and VGA), it is connected to a Sony 55cm TV with a homemade VGA - SCART cable. This setup was working really well with older versions of GroovyArcade.
I used Generic15 in GASetup.

  • First problem: Attract Mode freezes quite often. I had the problem in the past, and if remember correctly, I got rid of it by compiling Attract Mode myself. This is a minor problem for now. But if anyone knows why, I'd gladly take the explanation.
  • Second problem: it seems only 640x480i is working. If I launch a game from Attract Mode (I tried a dozen of them), the TV goes out of sync. If I launch a game directly from the command line, the screen flip back to 640x480i with a more lot stretched image, depending on the game.

Other than that. Congrats on the work so far, I found the idea of the voice to guide the user while the screen got no signal very clever!

1/ Do you use video snaps ? Depending on the hardware, they tend to make AM freeze on interlaced resolutions (which is the default). Bug in the AMD Xorg drivers ... So your solutions : check in AM options that power saving is disabled, set a progressive resolution in gasetup > setup > video > video resolution, or get rid of the video snaps ...
2/ are you sur ethe generic_15 is a good profile for your TV ? GroovyMame does modeswitch. Needs more logs, you can find them in shared/logs (the mame.log is helpful here)

  • I indeed use video snap. Thanks for the tip. As I said, I fixed it in the past, possibly by using a different resolution.
  • I used Generic_15 because that's what I used before and it was working, I have no certitude beyond this. I'll pick the logs when I'll be back home tonight.
Thanks!

I suspect "X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)" could be a clue, but it doesn't mean much to me. :( There seem to be a couple of permission issues too, but not sure how relevant they are.

Some people have had that X error lately, we're investigating. Sadly I'm not concerned (yet?) by this error

Hi Substring,

You said change the resolution " It's video resolution, not boot resolution, sorry " I have set two arcade cabs with GA both running 31khz monitors both running on AMD 5450 cards

How do I change the resolution in GA set up? When I try it says don't change resolution, I can't see how I can select anything else or do you mean pick another monitor from the monitor type

I still get the freezing now and again on Attract Mode menu, it seems if you scroll up to the top and down to the bottom of the list on first boot then it tends not to freeze after that ... thats my work round but it would nice if I could this great set-up 100%

My bad, changing the resolution is only available for 15 or 25kHz monitors, 31kHz default to progressive 640x480. And to be honnest, you're the first one having freezes with a 31kHz setup, it really only happened so far for 15kHz setups. Can you, from the command line, give me the output of cat /proc/cmdline ?

Good to know it's been investigating. If you need any help for testing, let me know. I have another cabinet with a similar setup (but with a nVidia, card, I think).

Hi Substring

I am working away from home at the moment but I will get the information from output of cat /proc/cmdline and post it here, it would nice to know what triggers this it does not always do it.

it seems that if it is going to freeze then it will most likely do it from a cold boot and if you manage to move up and down attract menu and successfully select and run a few games then attract mode seems to be ok. I re-encoded all my mp4 videos on my vertical cab thinking that would help but it still freezes now and again so I didn't bother encoding my videos on horizontal cab, my videos come Emumovies.

GA is such a rock solid idea with the best results i seen in years as I have come from Groovymame running on Win 7 and Win 10 but I stumped on this intermittent freeze bug

I was playing the vertical Sega Net City last night and it crashed and on re-boot it had all this code on a black screen where the GA splash screen used to be then goes to menu

It works fine but I can't get rid of the code at start up, on another try it the GA screen flashing in between a black screen or code it looks a little like this but this not it I coped this from another post in here to give an example,  any ideas on how to fix this, I think this normally hidden

Also is there a way to defrag or disk clean the LX OS ?

sd-umoun[2758]: Failed to unmount /oldroot/dev/pts: Device or resouce busy
sd-umoun[2759]: Failed to unmount /oldroot/dev: Device or resouce busy
shutdown[1]: Failed to finalize file systems, ignoring.
reboot: Power down

Also where do I get this information from  ?   ( Can you, from the command line, give me the output of cat /proc/cmdline ? )

Ok, very strange switched on the vert cab and the GA splash screen is returned, code gone or hidden = Good

also is there a way of hiding the GA splash screen so its just boots from bios to blank screen to Atrract mode menu ?

Sorry for all the questions  ( :

I'm not sure I understand. Did it boot till the end or not ? These are some messages from the initramfs. As long as the new root is mounted, they shouldn't matter.

For the command I requested : go to a terminal (simply exit gasetup, the text menu) and type the command

Sorry for all the questions  ( :
I usually press the up arrow to show what's behind the splash screen. If you want to permanently disable it, you need to remove the splash keyword from the kernel parameters. The file to edit depends on whether you've installed with UEFI boot or BIOS boot. For bios, the file is /boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg (needs to be edited as root). For UEFI it should be /boot/EFI/syslinux/syslinux.cfg

you can run a no nag patched GM but keep in mind that :
- updating GM will be complicated, even updating your full OS will be complicated. The reason is that GM will be updated and will erase your version. And you rely on someone publishing an updated linux binary, and have to install it yourself
- some old roms are still not well emulated (we had a case with kung fu master a week ago, and its emulations became even more demanding whereas it's still unperfect), so you loose that information. This is problematic when you ask for support on a particular game and you skipped that precious information

The original nonag patch source is at http://mamestuff.lowtrucks.net/MKChamp/ but it hasn't been updated in months

Well, this worked =  groovy017o + nonag - linux from b4nd1t0

Thanks for help

still have this menu freeze problem, just a noob question, I know that its an AMD driver error with videos but what  if i changed my ATI Radeon HD 5450 a different say ASUS HD5450 would this solve the problem or is it a case of change to a different card and if yes to a new card

what would be the best closet option that does not freeze Attract Mode

Thanks for any help

It's a driver problem, therefore software problem, not hardware.

Switching to some GFX card that uses the amdgpu driver instead of the radeon one should help
