    You'll need a decent dx11 gpu as well or be stuck with the gimped dx10 plugin. Annoying as that requirement basically makes a decent demul setup impossible to do with groovymame cards. Easier to just piss it off, rather just have groovymame.

      Feels like you're better off just paying the extra dollars and buying the Arcade VGA 5000? What would be an ideal PC setup in terms of CPU, RAM and graphics card to use in conjuction with GroovyMame/CRT_Enudriver? Keep in mind, we'll only be playing 15khz games from the 90's.

        Ideal for that in my mind is WinXP X64, with at least a core2duo 2.6ghz or higher (preferably an i3, but a core2duo should be fine), 4 gig ram and an ati x300 running CRT_EMU driver. I have that exact setup in my horizontal 4 player MAME cabinet that is setup to run 4 player 90s games like NBA Jam and TMNT. Works fine.

          Yeah i got everything going with demul already , its just dogs balls without some extra grunt.

          I prefer to work things out myself , especially when there is no need for "specialised" accessories and when i have everyting sorted I will know the said subject like the back of my hand ( and its free )
          Once again the daily specs question , anything above 3 ghz (core 2 duo 3ghz you will be laughing) $10 graphics card will suffice it just has to be on the list ...

            Forget the arcade vga, waste of money. Any dual core above 2.5 GHz, whatever minimum ram Win7 requires and a compatible ati card are more than enough for what your looking to do. Could easily pick up a second hand Dell Optiplex PC to do this.

              I have a core 2 duo 3.2 GHz, 8GB RAM, have an ATi Radeon HD 5450 1 GB, but I may have to swap it for a 1GB ATi HD 4350. I may install Win XP 64 bit as opposed to Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Just wasn't able to install the USB drivers under Win XP, I have a feeling that it could've of been "my copy" of XP though...

                XP 64 can be irritating like that, it wasn't as widely supported by Microsoft so there can be a bit of hunting around for drivers.

                  Thats whats spinning me out a little is that I know tetris should run in 640x480 ( low res monitor in config ). And when it runs it looks like it actually is 640x480 ,just windowed ( alt tab doesnt do anything either ).
                  Just tested type x Tetris for you. 480p full screen no problems. Not sure what's different with your setup.

                    I've never had a problem with XP x64 driver support. I just go to the motherboard manufacturers website, find my model of motherboard, and download all of the relevant drivers for X64. They always exist, you just need to dig through the menus specific to your motherboard to find them. Once you grab all the drivers, it's just a matter of installing them all.

                      Yeah, I've done that. I can manage to install all of the drivers except for the USB Inf drivers. For some reason, Windows 7 worked straight off the bat (my PC was originally realeased with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit). It's all good, I'll grab another copy of XP. It's just a matter of formatting, re-installing etc. A little time consuming, but the end result will be worth it hopefully.

                        Bastard

                        Yeah its no stress, as with all this shit there is an infinite amount of combinations to get the desired result. I think switchres might be forcing 480i
                        We might have a winner !!

                          I installed Windows XP Pro 64 bit for Luke's Dell Optiplex 780 slimline running an ATi X300. I have sucessfully installed GroovyMame64, CRT_Emudriver also installed without any hiccups. I've edited the mame ini file as well as the VMaker ini to cater for a 15Khz CRT. I began installing all of the necessary drivers (downloaded off the official Dell website). I have drivers for everything except the audio controller! How annoying! There isn't a version for Windows XP 64 bit, only 32 bit. I tried all of the audio drivers i.e Windows Vista 32/64, Windows 7 32/64. Nothing will install. I've also installed all of the latest updates, tried having Windows search online.. Nothing! What to do?

                            download realtek drivers for appropriate OS ..

                            I had a separate audio issue on the weekend that when the card got patched it routed audio through the hdmi output, tried installing new drivers still had no sound , had to go into the bios and enable intergrated/onboard audio or whatever the specific company calls it ...fixed after that ..

                              I'll give that a try when I get home after work. I even updated the BIOS to see if it would allow the installation. I'll double check the BIOS settings to see if I have a similar setting to you.

                                I have to admit i've never played around with 32 vs 64 bit XP. I'm assuming 64 bit would be faster, but how much faster are we talking in terms of MAME?
