Another contest

So I need some more design help. Actually I need someone to do the design work for me.

I am going to build a Centuri cab that plays multiple Centuri PCBs. Centuri licensed games from Konami.

I want it to play Gyruss, Time Pilot, and Circus Charlie at minimum. I have to see if there are other Centuri games that use the same Monroe joystick and 1 action button.

RiddledTV makes a multi Konami switcher.

The only potential hurdle I see is if I can't find a single monitor setting that all of the games like. If I cannot, is there a 19 inch multisync standard res monitor?

So for the contest.

I need an artwork package for this thing. I want to stencil it. I was thinking similar to a Taito cab or an Aladdin's Castle cab. No game specific artwork. That way I can put any combination of boards in it.

Maybe a marquee like a Neo Geo where I can swap out elements for individual games.

I don't have a prize in mind yet. Vigo got a T shirt for the last contest, but then I made a bunch of them for people. I still need to get him something else.

Is the horizontal scan rate different between those games?

They all use a standard res monitor.

They're 224x256. Multisync standard res is a contradiction. You could add other games like Phoenix and Pleiades that will work fine with the stick.
