This is a question I've wondered about for some time. I'm interested to see what the averages are for displays people use to retrocompute. My displays have averaged from about 212 to 220, with various monitors and televisions (never used an LCD). The current monitor I use displays about 220; It's a JVC BM-H1300SU Studio Monitor. I'm not looking for exact numbers, obviously, since this poll just allows for even numbers to be selected. It's close enough for me. Use the attached executable Atari image file to make your determination by getting your upper and lower numbers and then subtracting the upper from the lower for the total. For those with quite curvy monitors, you can adjust your numbers accordingly to reflect visibility at full width if you like, but it's not necessary. Selections are available for the various types and both NTSC and PAL: CRT Monitor (Real Monitors), LCD Monitor (of Any Type or Related Tech), and CRT Television. If you have monitors in multiple categories, you're welcome to enter as many as you'd like. If you'd like to post information about what monitor(s) you're using, that'd be cool too. Altirra diplays 224 scanlines for NTSC and 240 for PAL, and these are the dimensions you'll get when saving a screenshot with Altirra. Altirra - NTSC Screen Height.xex
(First post. Long time lurker, couldn't remember my login info) So, after a ton of convincing, I finally got the wife on board with getting a floor model console TV. First, a little background information. Several years ago I picked up a Atari Flashback 2. I loved it to death. So naturally when they released a Sega Genesis, Colecovision and Intellivision Flashback, I had to have them. After all, I'm one of those, "I'd rather emulate than damage my rapidly aging hardware" people. Well, after my trusty CRT died, I decided to just use the big TV in the living room. After all, that was most convenient for those quick late night nostalgia trips. However, it never felt right. Well after about the 50th time hearing, "Wow! Those games look like hot dog poop" I decided it was time to get another CRT; but which one? After searching for a SCART monitor, I finally decided that for optimum nostalgia, a floor TV was required. For a while I was after a early to mid eighties model, until I came across a late 2002 Zenith 27" console. It was perfect! PiP tuner, multiple rca inputs, component inputs. Plus, it was only twenty bucks. Sold! So, a three-and-a-half hour drive later it was sitting in my living room next to the 55" LED. I gotta tell you, it was worth it. These games look amazing. My kids don't even bother the Xbox anymore. It's all, "Can we play Sonic? When can we play Pitfall? I want to play Mario!"... ...and I've never been prouder. tl;dr: Bought a new TV for gaming. Works great!
Looking for high quality copies of Atari television commercials from 1977-1983, will pay to have them transferred from film to hd video.
