Hi,

New to this sort of thing. I've purchased an SLG, but I want to use it with a 1600x1200 monitor  (Syncmaster 214T). Will it operate at that resolution, or will I have to set the resolution to one of the two supported ones?

Thanks in advance,

GE

Would this work on a 1680x1050 resolution monitor?  Thanks for any feedback...i have a 22 inch 16:10 monitor.

Sure.... if you run it at 640x480 or 1024x768...

FYI, I got the SLG working with a Raspberry PI.  You will need to google the setting on how to get a HDMI to VGA adapter to work, then force the settings to 640x480.  But it worked without any major tweaking!

Same here, I have a Dell 2001FP and I was wondering if I could use this too. Thanks!

IIRC, resolutions higher than 640x480 or 1024x768 will not have scanlines because they don't have the sync signal that the SLG uses to blank alternating lines.

Higher resolution signals (front end, Windows desktop, modern games, etc) pass un-altered thru the SLG, while signals at 640x480 or 1024x768 get scanlines. (set your arcade games to one of these resolutions)


Scott
Confirmed:
Hey Joe, you are correct that if MAME sets the VGA resolution to 640x480 (or 1024x768), then the mini SLG will add scanlines to the image. If you have a MAME front-end and don't want scanlines for those screens, just run the front-end at a higher resolution than 1024x768.

If you have been thinking about buying a mini SLG, head on over to Paradise Arcade: http://www.paradisearcadeshop.com/scan-line-generators/1253-mini-slg.html

I recently sent them a shipment of 32 units, the last batch I will be producing for now. I might resume production sometime in the future, but I am discontinuing the product until further notice.

3 years & 1,000 units sold is not a bad run!

I am having a strange situation with my MiniSLG. Latest version.  I have recently changed using this from an older computer XP 32 bit and version of MAME to a Win7 64 bit .174 MAME.

I have tried both 768x1028@60hz and 480x640hz and get the exact same results.

I THINK I have all my settings in Mame, Mala and desktop resolution set correctly. I get scanlines but its very jerky and all the fonts and other things a "off."  I am sure that I have something simple overlooked...or there is something in the MAME ini file that I have tweakes wrong.  Here are a few pics showing the issue. Fonts are off, ladders are very of in DK...

Any ideas/advice is appreciated! Thanks.

Can't see your whole monitor, but it looks like you're playing vertical games letter boxed on a horizontal monitor. In which case the scan lines are running in the wrong direction causing the games to look jacked up.

Hi !
I hope it's not too late to comment on this thread.

I'm in Europe and I  bought the SlG 3000 ( not sure if it's related to you as well) .

It works great on  the emulators I'm using EXCEPT on MAME. I just can't manage to change the resolution to 640x480 in mame. I have modified the mame.ini file in different versions of MAME  but it doesn't do anything.

There's probably something I'm doing wrong but I don't know what :(

Anyway, any help will be appreciated.

Thanks !

Hello everyone!

I just bought a mini slg to use with MAME but i'm not able to make it work and there are not scanlines at all. I set the computer reolution at 640x480 (and later 1024x768) and also in mame settings ... but nothing. 

I also bought a slg3000 months ago but I returned it because it didn't work, but I start thinking that the problem is not the scanlines hardware but my mame settings (even when I tried all the possible combinations with different computers and screens).

Is there anyone using the mini-slg (or slg3000) with MAME with happy results? Please, could you send me your mame.ini to check the differences with mine?

Thanks!

this thing is awesome!! I have been converting a space invaders cocktail to a mame machine and been pulling my hair out trying to get it looking good with mame effects but that allways messed up something else (audio or frame drops) set it to 640x480@60 not effects and I cant ask for anything more. thanks

The scanlines are going the wrong direction, instead of vertical, they should be horizontal.

You've seen real arcade games before, right? Scanlines run in the direction that the gun travels across the screen (the long side). Mounting the screen vertically doesn't change that.

Good job of shitposting in this thread. You clearly have no clue what you're talking about.

Glad you like the mini SLG! I turned over ownership of the product to Paradise Arcade a couple years ago to focus on other projects, but great to know that people are still enjoying it.
