Cocktail Table Card playing in horizontal not vertical - HELP!!

Post by aasmyrtlebeach » Tue Jun 08, 2021 4:19 pm

Hi, I am Jeffrey with Atlantic Arcade Sales. I have purchased well over 60 arpicade systems through High score saves. I have set up several cocktail tables that worked good. However I recently purchased a cocktail table card that is doing something strange and I need help!! When booted up the menu comes up in Vertical ( as it should ) however the games are playing in horizontal. I am needing this game for a birthday in two to three days and need help fast on how to adjust this. I am very familiar with hooking up the keyboard to adjust things so if there is a way to walk me through this I would greatly appreciate it. I use the respberry pi b+ , 19 inch game pro lcd, adapter board and card through High Score Saves

Hi Jeffrey.

Do you know which version of ARpiCADE the build is based on? If it's the latest the rotation logic is based around having a textfile called vert.txt in /boot

Earlier versions had vert set at the bottom of /boot/config.txt using the hashed out #monitor_mount=1 setting.

My guess is one of these will sort out your problem, it sounds like at the moment the system is running in horizontal but the menu theme is set to vertical.
