screen tearing/flicker every 30 seconds - MAMEUI32 v161
12/15/16 09:27 PM


Hi all,

I hope someone can help me out this is driving me nuts. I have an old MAME PLUS PLUS (v142?) that runs flawlessly on my cabinet. But I thought I'd upgrade to v161. My pc is an old lenovo dual core (model AW2), 2G ram with xp pro and a GVA LCD TV as the monitor (60hz). The monitor is connected via VGA to the on board graphics.

Now.... my drama is this flash/tear that happens every 30 sec (you could set your watch by it) regardless of the game being played and whether you are actually interacting with the game or not (even happens when paused). It flashes diagonally across the screen with the LHS being the lower end (ie the RHS the high side). I have tried changing the video settings within mame and cannot win. I also tried setting the monitor to 75hz but this doesn't help and messes up the game play. I also tried the command line v178 which does the same thing.


Any ideas????


Anyone????
