Rotating Emulators / Skins For Use With Vertical Monitor
Posted 11 February 2009 - 01:26 PM
i have built a few cabinets now that use a xbox instead of a PC to create a quality arcade cabinet, and i have a slightly different vertical monitor cab that i want to convert as well.
the problem im having is that although i can play vertical games on coinops ignite and FBA (havent tested) the main rom selection screen is 90 degrees out. I would love for this cab to have most emulators that have vert games but i not sure how far i can go with everything on its side !
1. Is i possible to rotate text pictures etc for a new coinops skin/FBA etc etc
2. are there any other emulators that have a rotate function.
ive posted this on 1emu but not getting much help

this is your best emu to use for your needs and it has the same compatibility as coinops ignite.
hell you can even make it a boot straight into mame128 instead of having a dashboard.neogeo,cps1,cps2........they work fine.

I was able to get about 100-200 games working that way, but it ended up breaking some other stuff and more complicated games like Pyros (Wardner) I couldn't get to flip everything (the sprites would stay upright, but the background would flip for the 2nd player, for example)
I always hated that when I take a trip down memory lane and play Pyros with my bro we gotta keep throwing the controller back and forth when we die.
This is a topic that I can't believe I never found any questions on before I was looking into how to alter the source to get this to work. I even got yelled at on a MAME coding forum because it seems like they don't like what we do here because we're tampering with M$ stuff. (I was warned with a ban, just for asking the question and being specific enough to mention that it was a Box I was looking to do this on..... Read the forum rules before posting kiddies)
I know BP said he would look into it. Just wondering if anything happened with that.

It should make your documentation a lot easier, and tie it in to an existing project. You could just use a column for your own documentation. Just make sure it's cool with him first
