That's quite an expensive setup to experience lag.

Not really, Fightcade works awesome almost lagless, you can't notice it with under 125 ping.

And the best is the good and friendly community we are ;)

We enjoy even playing tournaments with very good success

Have you seen the thread on my Garage conversion? I insulated my garage and have a small heater. No problems with condensation as it stays nice and warm.

thank you !


update


finally found a proper Bemaer for the Megalo410. Never noticed that projectors had such a input lag problem, none under 20ms, until now.

Acer Predator Z650 5ms in sports mode , now i need to wait till it drops in price. :problem:

Hello Jan, are all NAC mono sound without stereo?

I found a bit weird playing CPS2 games in MONO comparing it as when playing in the Blast city.

Megalo psu working again :awe:

Need to make some adjustments to the beamer (as you can see), but i`m getting there. Phase issue is nearly gone now.

sadly the pics do not match the actual Quality of the Screen, look pretty good actually.

tempted to replace the lense and contrast layer with a up to date rearprojection acrylic disc. 8-)

How does the geometry look on those bad boys? Do you have a test grid picture?

Just curious because i have no experience in RP cabs.

it is no longer a crt rp, it is a dlp rp now. geometry is no longer an issue, the beamer has not yet been fixed properly, thats why the Picture is not perfect balanced yet :)

Jan, JackisBack, a friend of mine, had some major issues with the lens and the projector on his Megalo so he might be of some help. Try MP'ing him and if he doesn't check MP's on here I'll give him a phone call ;)

you mean the lens layer of the projection Screen ? what was his Problem ?

my main Problem was that the cab arrived with disassembeled mirror and the Pins to hold the mirror were not included, so the distance and angle was not right, took me nearly 10 hours to find a proper solution for that. :palm:

still Need to clean the contrast and lense layer, they have some ugly dark spots, i doubt that i will be able toget rid of them completely. :problem:
