The system is running with a modified version of Coinops Diamonds 3+ to utilise the brilliant full screen marquee support and preconfigured setup options for 4:3 CRT’s.


21inch LCD monitor for Marquee
28inch CRT TV
i7 3770
16GB Ram
250gb SSD
1TB Mechanical HD
2GB 950 GTX
Sound system – dual outputs to TV and 3.1 speaker system
Controls – 4 player EG Starts kit.

Construction: Design based around gauntlet dark legacy arcade machine but supersized for bigger screen.

3 shelving units from work chopped up with my trusty jigsaw.
glass from my sons old bedroom window which i cut to size.
vinyl wrap
Chrome edging
Graphics – still a work in progress

Have another arcade machine and a virtual pinball machine and couldnt quite put my finger on what was wrong as things didnt look right. As soon as you play games on CRT it is a game changer. No filters on Mame compare. Modern games look amazing too.

As the system is set to low res due to the CRT it means i can get Mortal Kombat 11, Street Fighter V and killer instinct running on max settings and 60+ frames a second. They look amazing (think i have said that already but they really do)

Neo Geo and Teknoparrot games feel true to the arcade something that simply doesn’t come across on any other type of screen including 4k.
