Being one of the lucky people whose email filters somehow let a message
from a hotmail account containing the f-word slip through; I'll ask a
couple clarifying questions:
Does this happen when you launch smoothmame directly from a command
Does it happen if you use advmame as your emulator instead of
Why are you running smoothmame? It simply forces most games to run at a
60Hz clock, on the assumption that your monitor is also running at a
fixed frequency of 60Hz, which probably isn't the case since you've
previously indicated you're running an arcade monitor--either way
though, advmame would probably give you better results.
Rather than going into detail trying to answer some of your previous
posts, for the sake of the list I'll keep it short [sort of]: It looks
like 99% of your problems are Smoothmame, it just wasn't designed for
arcade monitors, and even for what it was designed for I don't agree
with the approach [for that matter, I'm not sure why you're trying to
run Raine too, but will give you that there's maybe a couple games there
that MAME doesn't support yet]. Go back to trying to get advmame up and
running, if you run into problems with that, we should be able to answer
Also, I don't think you've mentioned which version of Windows you're
running. If it's Windows98 [or something even worse like WindowsME], you
should actually be using the DOS versions of advmame/advmenu, the
Windows versions are better suited for 2000/XP.
