MiSTercade Vertical setup - Most games upside down?

Unread post by brandonx76 »

*UPDATE*

Doing some reading / I guess this is a known problem. Seems I may be better off rotating monitor Clockwise for games that can't be flipped (Ex: Contra) and flipping those that can


***

Hey folks - I'm running a MisterCade successfully and a vertical rotation (Counter Clockwise profile)

Menu looks good - most games (ex: Contra, Journey) are upside down however when I launch them. DonPachi is running proper perspective / looks great.

Is there a way I can rotate/change per game rotation? I was thinking since most vertical games are upside down just load a Clockwise profile however, the MiSTer menu would be upside down and then DonPachi would be upside down too (and any games that are the opposite of Journey/Contra etc).

Any suggestions to work around this?

Thank you,
caad

I feel your pain, ran into the same problem. I ended up rotating the tube 180 degrees.

Another solution is to swap the two vertical yoke wires with each other, and the two horizontal yoke wires with each other. This will effectively rotate the screen 180 degrees. (The usual safety warnings apply.)

oh man - "bleeding edge technology" problems..thanks for the tip on swapping the yoke wires, hadn't thought of that. Yeah I want to play Contra and Journey so I'll have to do some swap. but then I won't be able to play Up and Down - (another game that has no flip option in the core or DIP switch setting
