retrofe + groovymame black screen issue
« on: December 18, 2020, 12:14:29 AM »
I have been trying RetroFe and groovymame that comes bundled with Coinops FE and when enabling actual switchres it very often goes to a black screen when you exit your game.

If you disable the switchres features it seems to be just fine going in and out of games and coming back to retrofe.  While in black screen you can choose other games and hear background audio.

Anyone have any experience with this?

Seems like retrofe doesn't recover from a change in resolution.  Occasionally it will go back to the menu, but usually no, just goes back to a black screen.

Can you upload your log.txt file? RetroFE has settings to decide whether it re-initializes the graphical SDL environment after a game, and may be initializing with your new resolution.
