Well that all pear shaped.

Any how.. im back again. hopefully for longer this time.

Hope you guys are all doing well.

Having issues and thinking of a complete update on existing arcade.

just need to decide if i want to stay with 147b or to go newer or older and get new rom sets.

Time to browse the forums to see what you have all be up to :)

Regards

I would imagine the latest version would be the best one for compatibility and finding the r0ms, the only reason I'm six or so updates behind is I really can't be bothered to update my entire collection every month or so... I normally wait until something new I can't live without appears in the updated playable game list...

Nice to see you here again, Chevron! :hello:

MAME HLSL capability is definitely a consideration for anyone thinking about updating from older versions, unless you're actually going with a CRT monitor.

I was having trouble playing any games... a bit of trouble shooting and it turned out to be a dodgy GFX card.

Card as VGA safe mode.
Luckly i had a spare card and all is well again.

No need to upgrade the system... but now that im back in the "Mode" again i might as well get a newer version ready to replace.3

Maybe a new background screen is in order for mala.
Still with the LCD due to using a tabletop/bartop Cab


Will be sticking around answering and asking questions checking out people cabs and what not for a few days.
