Ok guys, this project need a new topic .....  Space Ace




In these days I'm doing some testing .... here my best result with a CRT 21" Vga monitor and Misfitmame (my idea was to use AAE emulator: http://pages.suddenlink.net/aae/ but not support the vertical viewing yet roll eyes confused ) and I'm very pleased, I remind you that I've never seen a Tempest machine here in Italy  Evil so....

I've already made a ps2 mouse hack for the spinner, and works very well  Kiss Kiss:



with the light on:









and with light off, whoooaaa great image quality, LOVE IT  Kiss Kiss Kiss









 Kiss Space Ace

Well, if you live close to Milan, there's a guy who owns a working Tempest machine. You can find him in the Yahoo Group ITVAC, where some of the italian collectors/Mame enthusiasts are.

The result looks really clean.

Two questions :

- Have you enabled the "use antialias vectors" in mame ?

- Do you use the maximum resolution your monitor support ? (1600x1200, right ?)

Yeah, good luck and have fun with the built of this beautiful replica. The last few days I read your other projects and they are very stimulating. Probably will do one also someday.
