GroovyMAME is a multi-platform fork of MAME with greater emphasis on CRT monitor support, in order to provide smoother gameplay with less input lag than using regular MAME on an LCD screen. It is available as both a downloadable emulator and as a GNU/Linux live CD, as Linux is the preferred platform for using it. To use it in Windows with a similar amount of fluidity, Windows XP (deprecated; not recommended) and a modified ATI Catalyst named CRT_Emudriver must be used, based on either Catalyst 6.5 or 9.3. It will work best on the ATI Radeon 9250 (AGP), ATI Radeon X300-X600 (PCIe) and the ATI Radeon HD 4350 (PCIe), but should work on other cards supported by these versions. There is a Windows 7 version of the driver undergoing beta testing.
