    Newbie Needs some guidance

    That's awesome Guys! Thank you so much for the responses. I have gone back to the original gamex and now everything working fine again. As for the LCD, I think I'm just gonna use this CRT until it dies. Thanks for your help.

    Newbie Needs some guidance

    Hey Guys, I am a paid member of the original gameEx. I decided to download and install the Evolution alpha the other day and I am having an issue. Where do you go to setup the folders where your files are?? I have hovered and clicked on everything but am unable to find this. I missed the chance at install to do all these things and I am wondering if I need to re-install. Another question. I have my machine set up with a CRT monitor. I really want to switch to a flat screen due to some incompatability issues with some of the games I would like to put on this thing but I'm worried LCD/Plasma, whatever, will not be able to read the light gun. Is this so? Can I only play light gun games with a CRT? Please help... Thanks, E

    Hey U-man, Just looked in my box and there is not a video card, the monitor plugs right into the motherboard. I have gotten it running but I think If I am to get a card, I may as well get the one that tom recommended the arcade vga one.

    Update. I was able to boot with advanced boot options. This gave me the opportunity to boot with low res settings. I am able now to see windows boot up and can double click GameEx icon. However, I have changed display settings to what works. Next question is regarding mame. I downloaded and installed MAME 64 and let game ex update it's list of roms. Now It boots directly to a mame screen. My eye candy theme does not come up any more. Any thoughts?

    Hey Guys thanks for the responses. I hate to change front ends, I really like your game ex Tom. It worked before I updated to win 7 so I'm gonna keep trying. Perhaps back up the driver to the previous version. I'll also look into the video card. It's just hard because I can't make heads or tails of the screen since its scrambled. Gonna try to hook up the flat panel and the crt on a different video card... I'll keep you guys informed. I'm pretty excited as this is an awesome cabinet...

    I've tried that and still getting over range message. It works fine on a flat panel screen so I connected it and brought it all the way down as far as refresh and resolution go. No change. the compaq splash screen looks good but then it scrambles.

    So I recently purchased a Mame machine put together by Dream Authentics. It was running fine until I decided to upgrade from XP to Win 7. When I plugged it back in to the cab, which is running a crt monitor, it shows a scrambled screen and an error message stating out of range. I'm sure this is something very simple to fix in the video settings or NVIDIA control panel. Any Ideas?? E
