CRT Emudriver with other emulators
« on: June 18, 2021, 06:57:38 am »
Hi.

I'm struggling to get other emulators to work with CRT emudriver.  Not trying anything difficult but just trying to get them to display properly at 480i.  My Desktop appears fine and groovymame works like a dream.

Others emulators I've tried including Project64 and Retroarch work OK windowed but it appears they go back to 480p as soon as I go fullscreen (See pics).

Whatg am I doing wrong?

Mike

Hi mikew72,

Basically, anything that uses OpenGL on Windows is broken regarding mode switching, due to a bug that forces a mode switch to an incorrect mode after the actual switch that the emulator (or Switchres) does. This won't be fixed ever, probably.

If you're using RA, make sure you're using the latest version with the new Switchres implementation, and either pick Direct3D or Vulkan, never OpenGL (this valid for Windows). If you're using a standalone emulator, check if there's a core for it in RA.
Important note: posts reporting GM issues without a log will be IGNORED.
Steps to create a log:
 - From command line, run: groovymame.exe -v romname >romname.txt
 - Attach resulting romname.txt file to your post, instead or pasting it.

That makes sense, thanks.

I've just spent an hour trying to get Vulkan working without success though lol
