I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate w/ a Radeon X1600 video card (what I had not what I really want ;-). MAME w/ Gamex Lite ran fine, MAMEUIFX ran fine, MAMEUI32 w/ EmuLoader ran fine - until recently. I've made sure I have the current video drivers, made sure that DirectX is installed correctly and I can run some stuff but mostly I get an error message that says "Unable to Create Direct3D Device".
I run dxdiag and it shows I have DirectX 11. I've tried running a complete install of DirectX 9 and tried setting MAME to all of its various video settings w/ no luck.
I can run MAME in a window (again some games but not all) but using the above frontends I can't get anything to work. Everything that I can find is for older versions of OS or MAME.
Anyone got a clue of what I can do??
