Hi again, Thanks for your quick replies! Ok since I posted my sound problem I have totally formatted my computer and started all over again. I reinstalled Windows 98 then used fraggles boot cd and installed ArcadeOS and Mame. I then loaded in my games from a bunch of discs from Lazarus. I then hooked my computer up to my arcade monitor and at first the sound worked but my pclock/hclock/vclock setting were off so I had no picture. I then reinstalled fraggles boot cd and got my arcade monitor to work but I now have no sound again! (just sound when i'm in windows) I'm not sure what I did to get the sound in the first place as I though I did all the setting the same with the exception of the monitor. I tried to view my arcadeos.cfg folder but I was not able to open it as I dont know what program I'm to use when I was prompted with a bunch of windows programs to open it.
Another think I noticed is that in some games they have a border around them like looking at a cocktail cabinet which makes the actual game screen half the size it should be. Would this also be a setting or is it just the rom choice I have? It is only in a handful of games but is rather bothersome if they dont need to be there.
Is this really this difficult to setup or am I just a slow learner?
I guess there is not a step-by-step guide for installing this is there? (one that is written for non-computer literate people with their only computer knowledge being self taught trial and error)
Thanks again in advance for any help offered
