Upgraded Mame from .147 to .157 -- not getting any video signal
#336449 - 01/28/15 09:43 AM


Hi guys,

I recently upgraded my Mame romset on my cab with the .157 release. To my dismay, I am not getting any video upon launching Mame -- it just sits on a black screen. If i press enter, I can get whatever game that is at the top of the list to load, but only the sound.

I tried my older version, .147 and it fired right up with no problems. I am using an older Dell, from 2009 or so, with onboard graphics instead of a graphics card; is this due to the newest version of Mame requiring much more video ram? It seems like a direct 3d problem, but if so, why is the older version working still?

Any help resolving this would be great!

Tyler

Will do. I can also post my mame.ini file -- perhaps there is a setting which is not compatible with my computer?

here is the contents of my output file:

It looks like my adapter doesnt support pixel shader 3.0, could this be the problem?

What OS do you have? Do you have DirectX installed? I think there is a version that gets installed in addition to the one that comes in Windows 7. I don't know about Windows 8.

Do you have HLSL enabled? If so, try disabling it.

I've had the same issue with an embedded chipset. DD will display, but not D3D. You need a video card.

When you upgraded your MAME version, did you create a brand new mame.ini file? You can backup the old one for reference by changing the name to mame_ini.bak or something like that.

To create a new mame.ini, you run this command in your mame directory...


Code:

mame.exe -cc



...you should subsitute whatever your mame exe is named in the command above.

No. Download and run this: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35 then try again.

If it still doesn't work, open mame.ini with notepad, scroll down to where it says

#
# DIRECT3D POST-PROCESSING OPTIONS

and set HLSL_enable to 0.
