  What is MME4CRT
Posted by: alphanu - 02-14-2019, 04:58 PM - Forum: Introduction - No Replies

MME4CRT is a fork of RetroArch modded with CRTSwitchRes

The changes made allow you to play on good old CRT televisions. This allows you to play the way it meant to be played. It simulates 15Khz video through your desktop PCs video card. giving you the look and feel on playing a real piece of hardware. It is one of the biggest breakthrough in RetroArch along with others.

It is contently available on the following operating systems:

Windows 32 and 64 bit
Lunux 32 and 64 bit (needs to be running xserver x11) 
Raspbery PI (any distro)

Some features are not currently available on all systems. This is only short term, I will be making sure all system will have the same functionality.

Not all features are merged directly into mainstream RetroArch. So, the only place to get the latest updates and improvement straight away is through this forum or via my Github.


  New Dynamic Super width option and more
Posted by: alphanu - 02-14-2019, 04:43 PM - Forum: Latest News - No Replies

MME4CRT now has a new options 

1. This option uses dynamic widths to output video for most GPUs. This is experimental at the moment but will get a lot better over time. Feedback from every one using it will help to narrow down the best pixel clocks to use on different hardware.

2. X-axis centring. this allows you to re-position the screen so your game stays centred. This is done while keeping the original video size to match original hardware.

I have also modified the porch algorithm for super resolutions to remove the huge over scan.


  Installing 15khz desktop resolution on Linux x11
Posted by: alphanu - 02-14-2019, 08:59 AM - Forum: Knowledge base - Replies (12)

The easiest and best way to perfom this is to create a file in your home directory named ".xprofile" without the quotes.
In this file you will need to add some xrandr command line code. Replacing $output with your output ID that your CRT will be connected to (VGA-0, DVI-1 etc). To find this ID load up a terminal windows and just type "xrandr | grep " connected" | awk '{print$1}' " without the double quotes. this will list all connected devices.

Code:
xrandr --newmode "700x480_59.941002" 13.849698 700 742 801 867 480 490 496 533 interlace -hsync -vsync && xrandr --newmode "700x480_59.941002" 13.849698 700 742 801 867 480 490 496 533 interlace -hsync -vsync
xrandr --addmode $output 700x480_59.941002
xrandr --output $output --mode 700x480_59.941002

Or for simplicity you could run my 15hkz installer which can be found here. Will automate this process for you.
