Re: Emulating MT-32 on an RPi2

in MT-32 General
Well I was able to get everything working by downgrading to the last version of Raspbian Stretch! Was not working on the latest Buster version. Is this a known issue that I just overlooked? Not with Munt in-general. I have Munt running on Buster from around July or so, after they upgraded to USB …

Re: Emulating MT-32 on an RPi2

in MT-32 General
Well I went through and did everything manually. Installed the latest Raspbian OS and then installed munt. Everything went smoothly except I can not see the Roland UM-One USB MIDI device inside of munt. There is just a blank window when I choose New Midi port. Is there something special I am …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

SLI is messing things up with DOSBox. That doesn't surprise me. Nvidia seems to be downplaying SLI. It's only going to be available on the 3090 in the new generation, so who knows what's going to happen to driver support. And let's face it, driver support for multi-gpu setups has never been that …

Re: Emulating MT-32 on an RPi2

I have been trying to use the Pi3 image from this thread on my Pi3b+ and a Roland UM-One cable. After writing this image to a sd card and booting it up it just hangs at a grey desktop screen after logging in with username "pi" and password "raspberry". Am I supposed to do anything to the image …

Re: Resolution Issue with Dosbox using a VGA monitor

in DOSBox General
Even on newer CRT monitors there must be an OSD where you can see the parameters of the current display mode. Hi! I thought of that actually, but I couldn't find it. There is a fairly extensive OSD with many deep controls, but none of them seem to reveal the current mode or scan rate. It appears to …

Re: Resolution Issue with Dosbox using a VGA monitor

in DOSBox General
If you set fullresolution to original or something low (below 640x480) and the video being sent to the monitor doesn't match that, it's because the OS doesn't allow that video mode to be used (unsupported by the monitor and/or graphics card); there's nothing DOSBox can do about this. It will use …

Re: Resolution Issue with Dosbox using a VGA monitor

in DOSBox General
For CRT monitors it's best to use fullresolution=original and aspect=false, as it'll send proper-enough video modes for the CRT to work with. That's absolutely what I started off with. No-go at all. I suppose it could be Dosbox not playing well with my particular monitor, but it seem far-fetched. …

Re: Resolution Issue with Dosbox using a VGA monitor

in DOSBox General
That depends on what the output/render settings are, which you didn't mention at all. Right. I should have done so. I tried Surface, Overlay and OpenGl; vgaonly and svga_s3; Aspect=true, Aspect=false. All possible permutations of those options, plus: I started with a baseline of Resolution=Original …

Resolution Issue with Dosbox using a VGA monitor

in DOSBox General
I downloaded the most recent build of SVN dosbox, and I discovered that I cannot run things properly on my monitor anymore. If I play something VGA, for example, DARK Forces, Dosbox improperly displays the picture with giant letterboxed borders. I tried to max out the vertical stretch, but it's …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

why would someone need to run dosbox as root? I don't know why this other person was doing it, but I remember a time in the beginning of the raspberry pi software development that you needed to hand install a lot of packages to get things like dosbox to work, especially if you wanted extra features …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

Hello, I'm sorry if this is a noob question but any help is appreciated! 1. Downloaded https://dosboxece.yesterplay.net/download/DOSBox%20ECE%20r4373%20(Linux).7z and extracted. 2. When running sudo ./dosbox I get the following error: ./dosbox: error while loading shared libraries: libasound.so.2: …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

We use the term "stand-alone munt" to refer to running mt32emuqt or mt32emualsadrv or mt32emuwin32drv and then configuring dosbox to output to that through a MIDI port. "Built-in munt" on the other hand refers to using a patched version of dosbox (like dosbox-ece) that can directly emulate the MT- …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

If you're on a very slow CPU (I'm thinking of like 2GHz CPUs fron the 2000's), then stand-alone Munt is better, yes. Just for reference, I use mt32emuqt with a debian varient on a Raspberry Pi, and it's absolutely no problem on a RPi3 or above. I think they say the CPU is equivalent to a 2GHz …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

Thanks; just checked out that link. It looks like the pixel perfect implementation in ECE may still be superior in at least some ways. In which case, is ECE version r4301 still the most stable and feature-complete release containing ant's pixel perfect patch? If you look back in this thread, …
