Arcade support (OTHER than pinball itself?)

Post by asurb2000 » Fri Jan 15, 2010 1:43 pm

MAME SITE:
Can I play MAME on an arcade monitor or on a TV screen?

Yes, MAME can be used with real arcade monitors, and using such a monitor will give you a much better arcade picture than a computer monitor. However, you need a video card that supports 15 kHz output natively (such as Ultimarc's ArcadeVGA) or through a software program (like Soft15Khz), or in some cases 25 kHz if your monitor is medium res. Driving a 31-48 kHz VGA, SVGA, or XGA signal to an arcade monitor can damage it permanently. For more details and help on making this work, please see the Build Your Own Arcade Controls website and forums. Additionally, there are some arcade monitors such as the Betson Multisync, Nieman Tri-sync, Wells Gardner D9400, and Billabs BL27CB0P that will allow both the native resolution of arcade games and allow running Windows at 640x480 (and some models up to 800x600 or 1024x768).
:? Now WHY would I show this tidbit of information? :?

1. Pinball 2000 has an arcade monitor (Both RFM + SWE1)
2. Nucore requires a PC (as explained on viewtopic.php?f=39&t=787)

Imagine a arcade/pinball machine in one (Which is exactly what would happen in this idea)

I wonder if that is possible?

THANKS

(Won't that be weird, playing arcade games like "Pac-Man" or "Rampage" or even "Spy Hunter" on a bally pinball machine)

NOTE FROM WIKIPEDIA:
Revenge from Mars is a 2000 pinball machine manufactured by Midway (under the Bally label). It is the sequel to Attack from Mars, that also has the same theme.
