Default Rotate Screen

im trying to build an arcade cabinet, and i want to have the screen sideways.

So Project 64 works great when the screen is normal 800x600 but when i rotate the screen (using Pivot Pro) then Project 64 no longer works, it gives me all sorts of error messages.

I seem to be having the same issue with games that use DirectX. Any suggestions or input will be appreciated

Thanks so much!
Zachary

Your display drivers have this function built in, make use of it.

i dont think my computer lets me rotate the screen in the settings.
does that mean i need a new graphics card?
All my DirectX games dont work when the screen is rotated using Pivot Pro...

what graphics chip do you have currently.... you need a decent one to play emulated games anyway,
