Nintendo VS monitor on Mame?
« on: August 27, 2002, 03:34:19 am »
I have a Nintendo Vs stand up (very huge) Dual monitor's.
Can these be set up on PC's?  ( the  monitors) This is a project that will be done after my other cabs are finished. But this question has been in my mind for a few months. ???
I think Nintend monitors used differant type monitors than any other arcade ( not sure ). I bought this Cab to restore and sell ;)  . Well after fixing her all up , I just cant sell it. after the Kids get tired of it. I really want to toss in some PC's and run Mame on each side. two 20" tv's would be very simple to toss in but the arcade monitors are MINT!! I could save some $$$$ if I used them. Can thay be used?
Mame VS Mame!!!!!

From what I have learned, Nintendo VS (and Playchoice-10) monitors are standard-res.   However, there is a difference between Nintendo and non-Nintendo monitors.   It is that Nintendo uses negative logic video, whereas other manufacturers use positive logic video.

The solution is a color inverter.    You need an inverter to convert the positive logic PC video to negative logic.     This circuit at http://www.arcadecollecting.com/info/Nintendo-color-invert.txt may work.

Since standard res monitors run at 15Khz, whereas PC at 31Khz, you will probably want to use DOS, and AdvanceMAME (advancemame.sourceforge.net).    However, with a modified J-Pac, you may be able to run windows.    Note: you will need to custom wire the board, since Nintendo boards are non-jamma.
