Re: Roms working in Horizontal but not vertical orientation

how are you setting vertical mode? You shouldn't be getting : -Black screen with this text in the top left "ioctl FBIOUT_VSCREENINFO _ Invalid Argument" all the games I tried worked... Best thing for me to keep testing would be trying specific games and MAME versions I guess. Possibly rotation direc...

Re: ARpiCADE 3.X (that's a ten, I thought 10 may be confusing...)

@Sdscribe 1. not to the best of my knowledge (assuming you don't switch to an unsuitable res/refresh). While you (probably) wouldn't switch original game boards as often as you can change game on a emulator setup it's not really any different to the monitor. Some arcade games and consoles used to sw...

Re: ARpiCADE 4.4 pre-alpha

I swapped a known good Pi4 for a new Pi4 that didn't like 4.3 and had a chance to check this new Pi4 thing out for myself. Unfortunately it is a hardware change and you cannot run older firmware on the new Pi4s to make old Pi4 software work. Fortunately I found a (hacky) way to make newer 2022 Pi4s ...

Re: ARpiCADE 4.3 (for RPi4)

@Cjoli Sorry, I haven't figured out why booting to a game starting from 480i isn't working. For whatever reason the res switching seems to like Attract-Mode and is failing prior to Attract-Mode launching... but that's as far as I've gotten on it. The only way I've had boot to a game working was boot...

Re: AE light gun configuration

Normally I don't recommend 4.4 (unless your Pi won't run anything else) but for light gun use it has some advantages and in high res a lot of 4.4s issues are avoided. Cheifly, more of the emulators can handle 2 guns as sepperate inputs. On 4.3 (or earlier) I think only AdvMAME (MAME 106) will recogn...

Re: Roms working in Horizontal but not vertical orientation

In that case it's possibly a 4.4 issue but I'm not certain offhand. That is not what I consider a rotated rom as it matches the screen orientation but the working sure gets confusing with all the various ways something could be rotated... I've figured out how to (hackily) make 4.3 work on newer Pi4s...

Re: AE light gun configuration

While I don't have any experience with the AE lightgun it should be possible to use one way or another as I have used Aimtrack, GUN4ir, Sinden and a bunch of others on RPi before. As I don't have the AE I'll do my best to help but it may take some figuring out. What Pi version do you have? What ARpi...

Re: Roms working in Horizontal but not vertical orientation

It's probably down to being forced to use 240p for rotated roms rather than 480i on earlier Pi4 revisions, unless I'm misunderstanding entirely... 240p doesn't really work well for running games rotated.

Let me know if that's not it.

Re: looking for easy way to get rom

archive.org can be a good place to try for specific MAME sets. It is possible to convert from set to set but it's a pain too as you need extra romsets to fill in some blanks etc. to successfully convert a whole set. Some of it can be automated in romcenter without having extra romsets using datfiles...

Re: Nintendo Entertainment System Select Button

select should be set to b3 for NES. If it isn't I'll have to have a look into setting the button, it'l be done through the Retroarch menus (P1start+B6 OR keyboard 'f1') but I can't remember the details offhand. It's possible it needs to be set in either in the quick menu bit or the main input settin...
