Every time I've gotten diagonal lines, it was either because (a) I didn't have the correct file name referenced in the .lay file or (b) the image needed to be resaved in a .png format that MAME can read.

To resize or move the bezel in the .lay file, look for the following in the .lay file:

bezel element="bezel"
bounds x="0" y="0" width="4000" height="3650" /

Change the numbers for the "bounds" line to whatever you want. If the view ITSELF has a "bounds" line before the other graphics are referenced, this sets the overall size of the view and you may have to stretch that as well to accommodate.

If you still can't get it to work, send me a PM with your email and the game in question and I can send you a working .zip of it.

I asked my cat what the meaning of life was... he noserized me and stuck his butt in my face.
