So I have a 3 sided cocktail table that I pretty much scored for free. It currently has one of the blue Game king style xxxx in 1 boards in it that does work but the hard drive is cooked. have installed a test image onto a hdd and am able to play games on it using the existing Jamma board and pc combo.
I am happy to ditch the board and go proper PC Mame but I am looking for the best solution to the 4 player 3 sided cocktail setup.
How can I set my machine up to rotate the video feed from vertical to horizontal on the monitor with the press of a button like I hear about in all the 3 sided cocktail machine ads around.??
I get that the games have dip switches but Im talking 2 games lists. 1 for verti and 1 for horizontal. Similar to the 1033/1166/3500 in 1 boards.
Will the ctrl + alt + directional key allow me to rotate screen and if so can I map that to a single press and hold of one of my control panel buttons?? are there better options? what are people doing to make this possible to use mame on a 3 sided machine???
Really trying to figure out how these 3 sided cocktails work. Any help will be much appreciated.
