Man, whilst it’s nice to see a few more people access ‘arcade’ games, the idea of playing these Atari games on a non-vector monitor is just a non starter for me.
That vector glow just can’t be emulated and it’s really not the same experience otherwise.
Yeah the stock default answer from any vector mame usage. But the point here is to discuss whats possible with these cabs and specifically the ones that are vector games where monitors are almost unobtanium and hard to keep going (for me personally not an issue) Of course they aren't going to the same as the originals, but as mentioned in post 1 space is a big factor now here and also in most collections and after 30 years of collecting and repairing everything under the sun myself, new ideas and alternatives should not be discounted immediately. Plus the idea of upgrading these and the self assembly idea appeals to me. Self assembly pinball playfield kits would also be something i'd like.
Something else to bear in mind here is after a long time collecting original games etc variation is the key to keeping your mojo whether that is a switch to original arcade cabs, novelty games, mame cabs, snk tv setups, scratch builds etc etc
