Thanks Calamity, I really appreciate it  :)

I tested also Nikja Kun II (from the same driver, game is using 256x192 but it's horizontal) and it's ok.

This issue should be fixed now.

When you install emudrivers, one important step is to add yuor settings to mame. That way youll add your monitor setting to it. so you need to setup groovymame by itself, but cfg and ini files for games can remain.

Okay so basically if I replace all of my current MAME directory with the GroovyMAME stuff, replacing existing files, then install the CRT emudrivers, then go back to GroovyMAME and add my monitor settings to it, everything should be good to go?

On authentic Hantarex chassis the silkscreening for C42 is always polarized except on the earliest version of the chassis (MZ04). I don't think you'd have problems with a polarized cap if you respect the polarization (negative to ground). The only problem with an electrolytic is that in this location there's a lot of heat and no airflow so they fail. As gunblade said Hantarex later stopped using an electrolytic here and replaced it with a film cap. They sticked to a film cap for EW filtering on their next monitor too (Polo).

no idea, it just the way they did it- they were always fitted bipolar caps and later were fitted with polypropelene caps. I have worked on hundreds of the 9000 chassis and they have always been like that

they fail because they fail, just a common fault - thats why later models had the polypropelene caps fitted and they never fail. You should get a fair few years of operation with a standard bipolar cap so don't worry too much

Thanks for the conformation, it's much appreciated, I already discharged the monitor a few days ago and took the cap out, but I ordered a polarised cap by mistake, I ended up putting the old cap back in as my kids have been using the machine a lot lately, the correct NP cap came this morning so I will fit that as soon as i get a chance.

Thanks again :-)
Chris.

Hi, just wanted to double check, I have both types of caps bipolar polarised, the old one was a non polarised, but just wondering why the print screen has that big thick line doesn't that denote the negative side? And the MTC 9000 manual shows the top being positive, is there a reason a non polarised cap was used here? Could that be why it's failed and bulged? I know my chassis is a clone and the print screen could be wrong etc, just want to make sure.
Regards,
Chris.

Thanks Guys, I'll leave it if its not that important, I don't have any arcing, I just thought it may need doing to prevent any arcing.
I always thought it looked like the old red led paint

So you can buy this from eneba, throw a coupon on the purchase, and own it digitally on Xbox/PC for $4.15.  You have to redeem through a proxy in Argentina but I figured it out on my 5 year old iPad.

Iíve currently peg legged it on PC, gotten it via game pass for 4 months for a dollar, bought it for $4.15, and preordered it for $11 for Switch.  Switch version comes with a pizza coupon.  Pics will be posted here when I get my pizza.

 :cheers:
