At a recent tournament I was talking to Voltech about the constructing cabinets similar to Kray’s Vewlix creation and stand alone arcade stand setups minus the monitor. Since this would be primarily made for to support older CPS1/2 games such as ST, we realized that using LCD monitors could be an issue. AFAIK, most lcds tend to have some input delay compared to a CRT. Obviously CRTs would be ideal, but for transportation reasons (weight), they’re not as practical going forward.
I haven’t been able to find much information regarding the LCDs used on the Vewlix cabinets. I was curious if anyone had purchased one of these cabinets and attempted to play their old CPS1 or CPS2 arcade boards on them. More specifically, I wanted to know if you experienced any input delay (from the LCD) as opposed to playing the older games on a standard CRT monitor/TV. I know that some of them: (Vewlix DIA) support VGA resolution with DVI input and 15 pin D-sub.
At the moment, I currently have a supergun using the JROK encoder to play my CPS2 Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo board via a CRT. I also tried using this VGA encoder: (Video Converters - CGA/EGA/YUV to VGA Arcade HD-Converter PCB (GBS-8220) - JAMMABOARDS.COM - JAMMA Coin-Op Arcade Game Parts - CGA/EGA/YUV to VGA Arcade Converter PCB (GBS-8220)) with an Asus VH236H LCD monitor and experienced some slight input delay compared to the CRT route. Could this delay be removed by an adequate rgb vga upscaler such as this upscaler: (15Khz RGB CGA to VGA RGBHV Converter Scaler)? I know the XRGB-2 has been highly praised, but it’s been unavailable for years.
Any information/help would be greatly appreciated.
