Pinball MAME on vertical TV: game at the bottom of screen

Post by parkerparker » December 10th, 2015, 5:40 pm

Long story short I'm building a digital pinball/arcade machine with a vertical LCD TV. What I would like to do is have it so MAME displays the game in the lower part (keeping in mind the TV is vertical) of the screen instead of centered.

I could accomplish this by putting all of my games into cocktail mode and using a piece of black construction paper to cover the upper (mirrored) portion of the TV. Is there a hack available or something I could specify in a file to show only ½ of cocktail mode? Thanks in advance.
