Hello all, this is my first post so I hope this hasn't been covered before but I can't find anything on this or other MAME forums relating to this problem. The problem I am having is that when running frogger and amidar in cocktail mode and it is player 2's turn when the screen is flipped it is offset so that the scores sit in the middle of the screen like this.

This doesn't happen in donkey kong as in the thread above but does happen in frogger and amidar. I'm using MAME version 0.118 with roms version 0.118 with an arcadeVGA card and a 19" arcade monitor. I've tried all kinds of mame screen setting changes but nothing seems to fix it. It happens in vertical and horizontal mode. Strangely though the same rom works fine on an xbox version of mame (mameox) which leads me to believe that the problem is somewhere in a mame configuration. If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this it would be appreciated. Thanks.

Perhaps the driver is screwy on 0.118? try a earlier version of mame?

Thanks Arcade King. I had to go back 3 versions to 0.115b before it worked. I submitted a bug report to MAME testers and after testing, it has been confirmed this is a bug in versions greater than 0.115u4.
