    I know on a Windows machines the setting is in the mame.ini file located in the Mame Install Directory. I would assume that the Linux version has a similiar option. You just edit it with a text editor and you're right its the only way to make vector games look good on a PC based machine and CRT.

      have you checked out the video options in retroarch ? remember retroarch needs to be set to save settings on exit (or manually save the config in the configuration menu) or you'll lose any updates made, and wont see any difference.

      Edit - sorry, that's bad advice... the settings for vectors are not located within retroarch.

      Far as i can tell, you need to go to opt/retropie/configs/ and whatever mame version (dir) you are using.

      then look for these two lines and update to suit monitor:

      display_width 640
      display_height 480

      To really make vectors look good, you need a high res monitor, 640x480 CRT wont cut it. I'm using a low res CRT and vector games on my retropie install look crap. but they look awesome on my high res CRT in the upright.

          I am using an old one PS3 controller.
          How many wired or wireless controllers can be connected at once? As I have notice some mame games have up to 4 players.

            Actually mame 2003 is the best with Vector customisable setting in Retroarch.
            Mame 1.4 had sound lag with vector games.
