i am interested in this also, I wish there was a tutorial somewhere.  I've just installed gentoo and I'm trying to get that working with an arcadevga and wg d9200.

I'm trying to setup my cabinet with FreeDos but it doesent work very well!
When i finish all the testing process i will report something.

Now i'm trying to set up with a doctored MS-DOS.

I wont to compare diffrent card:
Matrox G100 AGP
Rage 128 AGP
S3Virge + Voodoo2 PCI
Radeon 7000 AGP

The monitor are Hantarex i think!

I have another Cabinet that work with Radeon 7000 + MS-DOS + ADVANCEMAME 076 and relative MENU.

For the new cabinet i wont to use AdvanceCD......

I think the first step is to have a good *.rc file ( WORKING )
After this i think the only other step is to include the rc file in the source!

I'm doing this .....

Solution to build advanceCD for the Arcade Monitor
« Reply #3 on: August 13, 2004, 07:06:00 am »
1) I do a fine tuning of AdvanceMENU and AdvanceMAME, using advcvg and advv under DOS ( Doctored MS-DOS) I try to use FreeDOSbeta9rc5 but i doesent work very well ( or i dont configure it corretly )
Any way after fine tuning i backup the advmame.rc and advmenu.rc from my cabinet.

2) Download AdvanceCD.2.4 source and Disk generator.
I'm using SuSE 9.1 Linux Distro.
I extract the 2 file in different directory and i create manualy another directory where i put all the file and directory.
advancecd-2.4.0 ( source )
advancecd-2.4.0-pentium ( Disk generator )
advancecd24 ( My directory containing the fusion of the other two )

3) Now in my directory advancecd24 i do: make extract

4) Now i sobstitute the significative line in advmame.rc and advmenu.rc in the advancecd24/app/root.

I report my diff file, but it depends from the hardware and also from the Arcade Monitor.

For reference advmame.rc ( new ) vs advmame.rc ( original source )

5) After the modification of the two file advmame.rc and advmenu.rc i rebuild the app image:
make app.

6) I copy the roms and snap

7) I check the roms with tre appropriare command ./checkrom.sh

8) I build the new iso: ./makecd.sh.

9) Burn the CD or DVD or .... :)

I think is not possible to do this in a Windows Machine, or better, is possible but you have to install some tools like http://www.cygwin.com/.
If anyone test this please report!
