There are more than enough CRTs to feed this hobby until the people who really care are all dead.

There is no need for new CRTs.

I routinely buy working 19 inch arcade monitors for 100 to 150 bucks. 25 inch CRTS for 125-250 dollars.

If you can't find them where you live then drive out to Chicago with a van and fill it up with arcade monitors.

One trip and you never have to worry about CRTs again.

If you don't live in the continental US this could be a very different conversation.

Bobbyb13, you need to rent a canoe or something. Sorry buddy.

Oh... tube envy-

Sadly (and comically) you are once again correct Mike A.

People out here had too much $$ during the CRT era apparently (and there are a lot of traditionalist people of Japanese descent here in the islands also) so most of the tubes I get ahold of are actually very nice Trinitrons.
Most totally usseless if not for Zebidee's work and some with only s-video, composite, or rf input anyway.
I need to learn how to rgb mod-

And the tubes that aren't Sonys are often Dynaflats.
Far better than LCDs obviously, but geometry is abit weird for some games of course.

Ahhhh.... the irony-

Hey you know what's interesting (to me, cause I am new here) but when I "quoted" Mike A, the quote wrote the word sh&t out like its spelled while I was creating the post. Which I thought weird, cause I swore he wrote the --steaming pile of meadow muffin-- joke/analogy. Low and behold, when I clicked "Post" - it zapped back to the meadow muffin thing.

Pretty cool, I figure its a auto thing ? When you swear it replaces your curse word(s) with some funny related banter ?

Oh and @Mike A, sorry I missed that part, yes I am on the Arcade Museum place too.

Who is Saint ?

You know I have from day 1 had that option checked, and just now double checked and yes I have that option enabled to leave words uncensored. Yet, it is still censoring them I guess ? Weird.

Saint a.k.a. John St.Clair is our gracious host who has been running this site since late 1997 and is the author of "Project Arcade".



He also does a great Pac-Man cosplay -- related thread here.

The filter is a one-way street.
- If you're reading an unfiltered post and your filter is off, it should show up unfiltered.
- If an unfiltered post is quoted by someone with the filter on, it will show up filtered regardless of your filter setting.
