            Re: menu is won't load :o(
            This is an easyone. Your monitor is either a LCD type or a non-multisync monitor. The sgalibs need a monitor's vertical sync range to be in a specific range... i think it was (60Hz - 85Hz). Eitherway, try changing your monitor.

            Cd begins to boot but I get a repeating error
            No video modes available for your current configuration

            I recieved the same error on advanceMAMEcd 2.5.0 Im now using advanceMAMECD 2.6.1

            I do not understand. I copied my roms the the rom directory and the snapshots to the snap. I run makecd and It does not get to the menu. Help PLEASE... Am I missing a step? How does it work for everyone else? Is it a setting in my bios or my graphics card? It comes up to the advanceMAME loading... Splash screen..

            Thanx for your help

            Re: Display problems
            Some are supported some not. It depends on the video board
            Linux driver. When I will switch to the new 2.6 Linux kernel the support will improve. But for now the 2.4 video support is still better tested.

            Re: Display problems
            As I have not got a reply since I asked this question more than a year ago, can I assume that TFT monitors are still not supported. I really would like to have a go at this and show it to my friends!

            thanks - Liam
