Dip Switch help
Looking for help on how to change some games to a vertical display, I have a lot of games that are displaying correctly but certain games like the Pac Man games, Donkey Kong games, and a few others like Gorf all display horizontal. I have tried switching the cabinet settings in Dip Switches to Cocktail since I am using a A1U tabletop. Is there a certain Retropie or Retroarch setting I need to correct. Any help is appreciated

@tmoe01 Disable the auto-rotate. Check this thread for other advice on vertical screen use:
Basically you'll want to have a config override for each vertical game. You'll probably want TATE mode enabled and auto-rotate disabled as core overrides and then have a rotation value for each game saved as a game override. (Some games will display upside down, so you have to rotate them 180 degrees, thus the need for a rotation override on some games.)
@thorr69 Thanks Im gonna give this a try tomorrow and let you know how it goes ;)
@thorr69 That was the answer!! I had to tweak it a little bit for my cab.
The settings that I had to change it to for the SFII cab was:
video_allow_rotate = "true"
video_rotation = "2"
aspect_ratio_index = "21"
video_aspect_ratio_auto = "false"
video_aspect_ratio = "1.25"
Hopefully this can also help others with the same issue going forward.
Now my task to tackle will be figuring out how to flip the screen for player 2.
