Nothing comes to mind. Perhaps there's a bad interaction between your sound driver and the gstreamer decoder library. Any particular video that you can trace it back to?

The two are separate configuration files. MAME controls are handled by the ctrl setting, the .cfg files, and can be edited from the MAME menu as well. Just press tab and edit the controls.

This feature only rotates RetroFE. If you want to rotate your emulators, you'll have to do it in there.

If you only need a single collection, just remove Esc from the back controls. The alternative is to change the firstCollection parameter, but then you'll probably have to change your theme's layout.xml file.

Use include.txt files. You can find them as part of the MAME XML files in the download section of this website.

No, that option does not exist at the moment.

Those are MAME settings, not RetroFE settings. You could use uneven stretching in MAME, but I'm not sure you'd be too happy with how a vertical game looks stretched on a 16x9 screen. I suggest you consider using bezels instead.

I should learn to put the version number in the posts. The download section never had a 0.10.7; it was a separate executable on the forums. If I recall correctly, it was this one:
but I'm not 100% sure.

I know, and this only seems to happen with certain themes. Unfortunately I don't have the debug capabilities under Windows to figure out what's causing it, and it doesn't happen under Linux. This leads me to believe that it may be caused by the new SDL and/or gstreamer libraries, but compiling under two different libraries doesn't appear to be working well. As such, I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to fix this one.

I saw the request, but adding a feature to make something that's already possible a little easier isn't exactly on the top of my implementation list. I have little spare time as it is I'm afraid.

Rotation needs to be configured in the settings.conf file, e.g.:
rotation0 = 1
This will rotate the screen by 90 degrees.

Download 0.10.21 from
Unzip it in a temp directory.
Rename your current core directory to core_backup.
Copy the core directory from 0.10.21 to your RetroFE directory.
Replace retrofe.exe in the core directory with the one from
That should do the trick. If it doesn't work, simply remove the new core directory, and restore the old core directory.

Just check your log.txt file; it should list the version at or near the top.

That would depend on the version you're running. I recently added rotation and mirroring to the code. As an alternative, you could indeed rotate Windows and use a vertical layout.

I used to have scripts that did that for me, but I had to do the last set by hand. I might have forgotten to generate that set.

Looks like I made some errors in the update of the theme file. Try this one.

I didnít have a full release planned, but I can see if I can find some time during the Christmas holidays to make one.
