?? MameX is full screen. have alook at the mame.ini file

experiment with this setting .

screen_aspect 3:4

3:4 is normal full screen, try 4:3 if you want to stretch vertical games to fill the screen, looks shit though cool.gif

or you can turn you TV onto its side (3:4) and change the following line

ror 0

to

ror 1

lol, remember to hit the degauss button after you tip it on its side. Old TV's can pink up really bad, and you may need a degauss wand to correct it.

I made a homemade one, once.
just wrap 3 foot of 3-4mm Auto wire around a (1") solid metal cylinder, about 15-20 times and stick either end of the wire onto a car battery. This is quite dangerous though, the wire gets hot and melts the insulation, the battery acid starts to bubble heaps and there is a good chance of explosion. jester.gif

But on the plus side you get 5 seconds of enuff magnectic power to degauss anything. just don't point it @ your groin sad.gif

it's the sound thats slightly ruining the mamex experiance for me. i have a pal xbox and i have it set to pal 60 mode but mame x don't support pal60 also i've read that arcade games unlike console games don't run to a specifc 50pal or 60ntsc. arcade games run to a individual speed. unfortunatly there is no fix for this. i hope that when superfro does the next version that he implements pal60 support also a way of synch sound and video. what i get with b6 version is sound breaking up and stoping for a split second and starting again. it does not ruin the gameplay or anything the emu is great. in fact it would be great if superfro would have fixed the synch problem and released a fixed sound & video synch version of mamexb6.
cheers.
