  • Only Top Half of Video Visible

    Hi,

    Got a problem with my MAME cab where only the top half of any video is visible. I believe this is due to 'double scanning'. As a result of this I can't play any Daphne games and my video jukebox looks very average... ...other emus play fine however.

    I'm running a Gforce 2 mx through a J-pac using Powerstrip to an arcade monitor.

    Anyone got a workaround/fix for this problem?
    Would an arcadeVGA avoid this problem?

    Any help is greatly appreciated, as I am hanging for a game of Dragon's Lair!

    Here's a pic of the problem. Same thing happens with video playback of files in Windows Media Player. Note the video fills the whole screen and is elongated.

      Woo Hoo! After hours and hours of searching the net I found the solution. For those interested, you gotta turn down/off the hardware acceleration. Not sure why but it works.

          ...except for the fact turning down the hardware acceleration causes problems within MAME, causing some games not to display properly. Oh well, I give up

            Save yourself the headache and either use Soft 15k or a arcade VGA
