Some HLSL help please :(

Recommended Posts

Hey all!

 

Just found out about this wonderful version of mame today and I really like it so far. Superfast and alot slimmer!

 

But I cant get HLSL to work.. I have tried and copy all files and folders from the regular mame64 187 release into the folder of Arcade64 187, activating it in the ini and whatnot :/.

I have it working in my regular versions of mame but I would really like to use Arcade64 :D.

I am guessing its something simple regarding paths or such in the inis but I cant figure it out.. I have been trying all possible combinations I can think of for the last 3 hours straight and I am about to give up.

 

Could anyone please tell me how and what I need to do to get it working?

 

As I said, I do have HLSL working in the regular mame, and mameui. But even if I set it to activate in the gui or in the mame ini it still doesnt do anything :/. D3D is set also ofc..

 

Thanks for your time!

I never use HLSL, but hopefully another member will pass by soon with the answer.

 

Thanks for waiting! :-)

Thanks :). I am sure I have missed something simple but I can't figure it put. But hopefully someone with a working setup could give me some advice!

 

I have been wanting a lightweight mame for a long time so this one would be great to use :)

You should check maybe which is the path of your HLSL folder in ARCADE. Options--->Directories--->Select the "HLSL Files" voice and check. You can setup the correct path there. Hope this helps

Thanks for the great tips! Sadly it didnt help. The path was correct but I even tried to choose the HLSL from my working install of the original mame (that works), but still nothing :/.

I cant for the life of me figure out whats missing? I usually just need to activate it and set video to D3D.. I even got another PC and tried it on today, but still no HLSL effects are showing when running ARCADE64..

Hmm.. the search continues :D

Have you tried either to copy files in "ini/preset" folder to "ini" folder or to change any HLSL settings in "mame.ini" ?
Preset in "mame.ini" has been deleted since any previous version, so If you haven't changed, even if enabled HLSL it doesn't do anything.

I tried with ARCADE64 0.187 and both work fine.

 

hmm... I can’t think of anything else.
