The colors are wrong. Quite fade.

Hold your horses !!

Remember that the colors used in Centipede are NOT that "hard" as on most games from the same era !!!

In fact they are pretty "soft" toned and thats how they are supposed to be so don't turn it up TOO much....

Most of the games in that era used very primary colors like (100%) red, blue, green, yellow. Centi had mixed colors and in softer tones, I am sure that has something to do with this being the first game designed by o woman...and maybe it is also why females are still attracted to this game...

That neckboard is another  proof how poor factory quality sometimes was in those days.....check out those solderings...

Some are "school examples" of bad solderings....Some are Even BULBS. If I would solder like that in school i got my balls kicked by the teacher. My 9 year old son makes MUCH better solderings SmileySmileySmiley

The cause looks clear enough in most of these solderings: Too much solder used...

Well, i'm probably satisfied with it but the day before I went purchasing this I played it at a friend and he had a new monitor. In comparison...well, lightyears.

I'll try the "hours on" and if nothing happens, I'll tweak a little. After that, well, it's fully playable and thats enough for me. Almost.

The closeup picture of the monitor looks like jail bars on the screen.  Is this visible in real life, or is just a frequency difference between the monitor and digital camera?

If you see those bars in real life, then the chassis needs a cap kit done.  I had a similar problem on a 25" WG K7000 series monitor, and the kit took all those bars away.

@leonk and well, anyone else. I'm a newbie to this (i'm a gamer foremost) but this time i'll try to learn as much as possible.

The bars you see comes from the photo. But when I tweaked brightness and contrast everything got better but there was other white jailbars all over the screen when I did that. They disappeared when I tweaked focus. Done some RGB tweaking today but the colors aren't what they suppose to be. The screen also go from blurry to quite sharp all the time.

Do you guys think that a new cap kit will solve this? I have a friend that will help me with the discharging, so don't worry...  Wink
