  1. Have you tried the MS-DOS version of LaunchBox?
  2. Hi, This one may be a bit tricky to explain, but I'll do my best. Here is the setup: Arcade Cabinet witha 19" LCD Monitor, using HLSL to simulate a CRT Emulator: MAME 0.220 Emulated System: Neo Geo MVS The problem (besides my OCD :)): Some Neo Geo games seem to be slightly cropped (?) on the sides while others seem to use the whole screen. The problem is that the ones that are slightly cropped, ruin the "3D" illusion of having a CRT because some of the HLSL effects are not applied to the sides of the image (only to the top and bottom). To illustrate the problem, I am attaching two pictures. The first one was taken while the NeoGeo was booting up, occupying the whole screen. Note the top-left corner. It is rounded and the line on the side has a fading to black effect. The second one, was taken after the game loaded. If you look at the top left, the corner is no longer rounded (because the side is cropped) and because of that, the line does not get the fading to black effect. I know I cannot play with the screen adjustments in MAME because that would move the whole screen, not just the "emulated image" inside. Is there any solution/option I can use to remediate this and extend the emulated image to the whole screen? Apologies if I'm not making much sense, but any help will be much appreciated. Happy to answer any questions. Thanks in advance.
  3. Check your mame.ini file and play with it a bit. (remember to backup the original file in case you mess up the configuration)
  4. I see... But I would still argue that if it didn't find any game, it could search for the same name in other platforms. At least posters, clear logos and instructions could be used. Anyway, it's clear this is the behavior by design. Thanks for the explanation. Cheers!
  5. Because it is also it's own system? Also, shouldn't the Scrapper search for other close matches if it does not find it in the "right" category? (maybe there is a good reason why it doesn't, but I don't know)
  6. No, it is set to SNK Neo Geo MVS... I see that if I change it to Arcade it fixes the problem, but it's kind of odd...
  7. Hi, As I was importing my Neo Geo roms, I noticed a strange behavior while downloading media from Emumovies that I would like to discuss with you to understand if I'ts a bug or I'm just doing it wrong... It goes like this: I am importing all my Neo Geo games and adding it to the platform "SNK Neo Geo MVS". When I try to download media (images and videos) from EmuMovies, it tells me the game was not found (happens with all the games). And yes, my games have been correctly identified in the Launchbox database (I have the Launchbox DB ID in the proper place). Being Neo Geo games, I found this very strange and decided to try some things out and see if it fixed the problem. I have found out that to download the videos I have to change the platform to "Arcade" and click on download media. But this seems like a very strange behavior from the scrapper. Is this normal?
  8. I've decided to upgrage the Raspberry Pi on my arcade with a proper PC, so I got a MiniITX MB with a Ryzen processor. Depending on your needs you can even go with an APU, making it cheaper, smaller and easier to cool. In my case I have decided to use a 980Ti that I had laying around, but that's because I had space inside the Arcade machine, but I can say that the whole setup is barely audible. The new Ryzen CPUs are amazingly easy to keep cool and the stock cooler is more than enough.
  9. That sounds weird. Does it stay laggy if you continue going up? Are you using the same resolution in both Win7 and Win10?
  10. Should I post this in the Themes section instead?
  11. These are the settings you'll need to mess with to fix that: distortion 0.0 cubic_distortion 0.0 distort_corner 0.0 round_corner 0.0 If you want to try them live, fire up a game and press the ~ key. Scroll down until you find these settings and adjust them live to see the effect directly on the screen. You can then save the settings or update the ini file. Cheers
  12. It really is a mater of preference... the one with the Scanlines is the one that looks right for me...
    Works as advertised! Just download and replace the EXE. Thank you for making this available... this has to be one of the most stupid restrictions in MAME. They could just do it on the INI file, but seem to be hellbent on maintaining this dumb restriction. You're a life saver.
