If I understand correctly, the OP is unfortunately looking for a stick which defies the laws of physics... at least where the diagonals are derived from the actuation of 4 switches/sensors responsible for cardinal direction sensing.  The diagonal throw of a normal joystick is essentially the hypotenuse of a right triangle possessing sides of equal length.  This would mean that the diagonal actuation would occur at roughly 140% of the travel required to actuate the cardinal directions. 

An analog stick which selectively maps into larger chunks of directional mapping will likely also be insufficient for exactitude due to coarse areas of transition between directions.

There may be something out there which can claim do this.  But whether it's always 100% accurate would still be questionable.

I tried to hook up a real NeoGeo console with Metal Slug and there the picture is perfect. So it probably has nothing to do with the monitor, but with the PC. I tested on a mame PC running emudriver and groovymame.
I asked this question in the groovymame part of the forum.
Many thanks

Hi,

I had a cabinet which was working fine with a hantarex CRT screen and groovymame on a windows 10 system. Because the monitor broke, I replaced it with another one (Segai). I did not change anything in the configs on the PC
What I notice now is that this screen has some kind of "outline" lines around graphics and text. It's not really color bleeding, it's like extra pixels added to the outline of the graphic. This is perhaps best explained with the help of some images I took.

When I lower the general brightness, the effect becomes much more prominent. Giving the screen more contrast and brightness lessens the problem a bit but not to a "normal" level.

I tried to hook up a real NeoGeo Arcade console with Metal Slug via the same JAMMA interface and then the picture is perfect with no outlines and great colors. So the problem is not the CRT monitor.
When running the same Metal slug with groovymame on the PC, the image is again with the outlines. So it must be something related to the crt emu drivers.

Any idea what this problem could be? See images below for examples. In the last image you can see also that around text in windows explorer there are white outlines around the black text which before with the hantarex screen it was just clear black. Now it almost is unreadable.
Many thanks

Many thanks for your replies.
When you talked about pincussion I noticed there is a pot for that too VR304. With that I was able to correct the problem.

I have another problem with this screen I would like to address. There are at the sides of sharp lines some kind of "outline" lines. They usually have the same color as the original line, but with much higher contrast. It's like all graphics have some kind of "outline" in higher contrast to them. This is perhaps best explained with the help of some images I took.

When I lower the general brightness, the effect becomes much more prominent. Giving the screen more contrast and brightness lessens the problem a bit but not to a "normal" level.
Any idea what this problem is called? I was thinking about convergence, but not sure that it's the case. Also I noticed my tube (Segai) does not have any convergence rings at all.
Many thanks for your help.

I hear the next version of the analog board is supposed to use direct video but at the cost of not supporting simultaneous HDMI and analog output. I know that is an important feature for something, especially those who stream.

Iím ok with that. I stopped using the dual output a while ago. Now I just upscale the analog out to the capture card and not be bothered with dealing with 2 separate resolutions. Itís cleaner this way.

Do you have the game discs for Team Challenge?
Playing online comes with a $36/year/cabinet membership fee.

I have Team Challenge discs, yes.  Who do I pay?
