Great work as usual !

Never played tempest but I know this is a famous vector game.

I suggest you use a 21" PC monitor capable of 1600x1200 : this will make the game look like on original vector monitor.


Some ideas of other classics of all time for your next builds : q*bert, karate champ (data east), kung-fu master, gouls'n ghosts, ghosts'n goblins, street fighter II, marble madness, rolling thunder, shinobi, dragon's lair (lol), out run (this one should be difficult), etc...

Thanks EvilDindon  Kiss

21"  roll eyes you've tried this configuration? Pc monitor with normal or flat screen? Best MAME (or other emulators) for best vector effects?

Fantastic video Scr33n  Kiss

Tempest without a vector monitor? There's something so very wrong about that. Sorry, but there really is! Some of the emulators do an OK job of vector emulation but vector monitors really aren't THAT hard to find and get working... surely its worth it for such an iconic game? No?

Sorry for the late response.

Yeah, a standard CRT PC monitor could simulate really well vectors at high res (1600x1200 or higher).

You'll have to try AAE too.

If you don't have a vector monitor yet, than go with a 20" PC monitor, you'll get very good result... not perfect of course, but I can assure you the fun will be there  Wink I played that setup on the Fred's (Arcadefever) cabinet and it rocks... you'll really enjoy the game in that way too  Kiss ... of course, it won't exclude the move into a real XY monitor later, but at last, you'll have something playable  Cool I'm also using a PC monitor inside my Star Wars cockpit, and I'm very happy with it  Kiss

PS : I suggest you to open a new topic for that project  Wink

PPS : Sorry for the off topic too  oppps ... now let's go back to your fantastic Track and Field cab  Wink

Of course the 20" PC monitor is a viable solution for a repro cab. Nothing against it. In fact, it's better to reserve the vector monitors for original cabs Cheesy

But I keep seeing people writing stuff like that it looks exactly like the real thing, and that's just plain untrue. Mostly people who have never seen a real vector monitor write that stuff...but it's a great solution like f.i. Bruno's SW cockpit, that he found completely empty. Or a new repro cab. Cheesy
