Re: How To Change Mame094 Games From Vertical To Horizontal Mode

not sure offhand, but you're almost definately looking in the right direction. If it's not some logical mistake or command line setting in the launcher it is likely to be a setting file in /home/pi/.advance/ (I can't remember offhand but 094 has a config file called something like advmame094.rc) - i...

Re: Does the Arpicade support Light Guns?

@cool_factor yeah, I agree. Not sure if real person or bot but every post has naferious links etc. and seem random. Thanks, I've banned them and deleted their otehr thread... Should probably delete this one too...

Re: ARpiCADE_5 beta2 - for RPi4 or RPi5

Awesome, glad to see you are up and running. Funny it was the extension cable, I wouldn't have guessed - I have only used them with Pi3s too. Thanks for letting us all know in case it is causeing someone else the same headaches. Pretty sure I know the bugs you've mentioned too. I think the audio bug...

Re: ARpiCADE_5 beta2 - for RPi4 or RPi5

@Tapper I wish I knew how to help. If you haven't already, can you try it into a modern monitor or TV via HDMI and see if it A. reports the resolution at all, and B. makes the messages that eventually appear readable - maybe they have a clue in them as to what is going on. I might try burning the im...

Re: Does the Arpicade support Light Guns?

I've deleted your quesdtionable links. It looks to me like you're not approaching this honestly. Complaints like this are very frustrating. It is easy to search the forum and find multiple posts regarding lightguns, even a software release designed to help build a lightgun setup. If you think I can ...

Re: ARpiCADE_5 beta2 - for RPi4 or RPi5

Weird. The result *should* be identical no matter what imaging program is used, but plainly it isn't. Not sure what to recommend at the moment. Also not sure what would be different on the current software vs the older software you've burnt successfully previously (in terms of the image). Also inter...

Re: ARpiCADE_5 beta2 - for RPi4 or RPi5

That adaptor looks like it should be fine, as long as it's just passively adapting HDMI to micro HDMI it should work fine. Does Balena Etcher give any options to 'optimize' the image for particular RPis or similar? If so you do not want to let it do so. While I'm not familar with Etcher it should be...

Re: ARpiCADE_5 beta2 - for RPi4 or RPi5

OK, that's obviously not what you want to happen. Not sure why it has offhand. Hopefully we can work it out. It is very likely to be the SD card or the HDMI to micro HDMI *(or maybe a loose connection or something) as the rest of the hardware is known good - assuming the RPi5 is fine... You are usin...

Re: ARpiCADE_5 beta2 - for RPi4 or RPi5

MAME 0.251 runs great for most stuff on Pi5. It's surprisingly good on Pi4 too. RA MAME has an extra frame of input processing compared to vanilla MAME, I can add the core back but I wouldn't recommend it over vanilla. MAME 0.172 and later have next frame response, depending on the game (based on th...

Re: Donut Dodo

I've attached a zip with a couple of files to this post to overwrite on /boot/ (of ARpiCADE_4 v3.2) to make DonutDodo work as a dedicated board on Pi3. The run.sh script is assuming you have the Donut Dodo files in /boot/DonutDodo. You will need to adjust the picture width on your monitor chassis, i...
