    Surprisingly competent piece of kit

    Posted by GT Evans on 12th May 2019

    Picked this up for an arcade cabinet I recently bought. The cabinet is a Taito Vewlix clone with a 32inch LCD screen with 720P resolution. Truth be told I wasn't expecting much, inline SLGs at this price point are generally a waste of time so lets just try it and see was the initial mindset I went in with.

    Connecting it up is as easy as you would expect. VGA out from your game device/board > SLG > VGA to monitor and it just works, so far so good and no unpleasant surprises. Build quality is good but the board itself is lacking any real functionality, of the configurations I tried I only noticed two distinct settings; very fine or very thick scanlines. Luckily, the fine scanline setting is truly outstanding for what it is. I can honestly say for the purpose of cleaning up the image, it does an extremely good job of it. The scanlines can be seen if you look closely but they are not blatantly visible when you move back a few feet.

    I'd initially considered using an OSSC as I already own one, but after using this i'd honestly say it isn't worth it. Sure it doesn't upscale or line double, at this price point that was never going to be an option. But what it does do is give your image a distinctly cleaner and nicely filtered image, emulating what you would expect from a consumer CRT.

    Would have rated 5 stars but due to the lack of any real funtionality and the horrendous thick scanline setting i'd say 4 is about right.

    I am not a die hard scanline guy who simply has to have scanlines in order to play a game but I do appreciate they bring a certain air of authenticity to a game and after I changed my dead CRT out for a LCD I decided to give this little generator a go as all the emulated/software ones I had tried just didnt look right to me and there was obvious variations between games/Emus.

    Now as I said above I am not a die hard scanline guy but the results this give I think are good, They look much better than the emulated ones and are consistent. I still have to use Emulated ones on ZSNES and Gens but this is due to the way the Emulators handle full screen resolutions and not the generator itself.
    It works flawlessly with my Mame, CPS1 & 2, Neo Geo and M2 emulators though. I cant comment how compareable they are to a real CRT playing a game as I no longer own one but I am happy with the results.

    Installing is a doddle with it being plug and play, I had to order 2x adapter cables because both my monitor and PC are DVI not VGA but it worked fine with them.
    After installing it I was wondering if something was wrong as when I powered up the PC I had no signal to the monitor, But once the PC had booted to Windows it came on ok. It just seems to take a while to get going.
    I would of liked a tiny bit more adjustment over the intensity but thats a minor point really.
    The only other very minor point of note is the V Sync dip switch is labled as "S" Not "V" as stated in the instructions.
