the MAKVISION M2929 will do 800x600 res. (SVGA)

not "low resolution" as far as arcade goes.

Yes, Iím able to do 800x600 60hz, and 640x480 60hz

So, Iím wandering if I go through groovymame to get the correct arcade resolutions and hz?

Iím guessing I probably should stick with 800x600??

After you install the CRT_emudriver, just use the appropriate monitor presets for your Makvision when generating/installing video modes with VMMaker and Groovymame will work based on what your monitor can do (or at least what you've said it can do in the monitor presets).

You won't need low-res modes because GM will scale up the games to the modes your monitor supports.

The Macvision M2929 monitor will not sync to 15khz but Groovymame can still help by outputting to custom resolutions that it can sync to and will look better than just scaling everything to 800x600 or 640x480.
