New Mame Resolution INIs generator tool
06/10/16 06:07 AM Attachment: 403 KB (6 downloads)


Here is my attempt to provide a little utility to generate resolution INIs for setups with an arcade monitor.

The tool is based on a map table (CSV file) to generate the resolution INIs.

You can also add extra parameters if needed.

It's coded in VB.NET and requires .NET framework 4.6.1

Play with with it and tell me if it worth it.

Feel free to report any bug.

Also, don't hesitate if you have any idea for improvement.

I will try to do my best.

Thank you.
