Thanks for reading, so im building a vertical cab for a friends birthday, and he loves snes games, i had created the cab to play cassics on mame at full vertical screen, so i added a few games that are horizontal and no big deal with the balck bars on top and bottom, now i would like to add a few snes and nes games, but the emulators dont seem to have the ratate option as in mame. Any advise would be wellcome, thanks alot.

Ratate your screen using the Windows drivers, if thatís what youíre using. Bet youíre using a Pi.

I'm using Windows 7 with hyperspin and a special vertical layout, so rotating windows would mess everything up. I was wondering if there was an emulator version for nes and snes that would have the option to rotate as mame

Nope.  Now you can use mame to play said systems, but I wouldn't consider it the best emulator for the job.  I think it still has issues with the snes.

I actually use MAME for all my NES/SNES emulation, and overall Iím quite satisfied. It does work better with software lists than with direct rom calls, but even with direct rom calls most games play well.

I use a 10:16 cocktail setup with some generic bezels I made.

i like mame or mess to emulate cause of the hlsl effects
i like to use is also with Hyperspin but then the gamenames romset of mame for NES / SNES is different from other emu 
So then you have to create a whole new database
or is there any other way it isnt example sonic the hedgehog (PAL)
i like to play some of the roms with the PAL system instead of the NTSC

You can use MAME with direct calls as well, but if you want to use the software lists you can download xml files from the RetroFE website.

how does direct calls with mame works?

As an example:
mame64.exe snes -cart ďSuper Mario Kart.zipĒ

Using software lists it would have been something like:
mame64.exe snes smkart

Note, direct calls are NOT recommended unless you're developing your own (simple) software tho, as quite often additional hardware in the cartridges (which might be essential for emulation) doesn't get emulated, as it is the Software Lists that tell MAME what is in the cartridges and how the data should be loaded.
