Yeah they all do but you have to physically turn the screen to the other position and mount it that way, i think, i might be wrong?
anybody?

thanks for your reply neo

i mean without turning the monitor, like mame on the pc, plays vert games with black on the sides of the screen

:cool:

The XXXX in ones are suppose to be Horizontal only, but with all the hacking with these I can't see with a bit of changing some ini files it can be done in vertical mode..

But back to your question:
Yes!... Mine isn't the latest, but I;ve added a lot of vertical games in, you have to change the ini file to give a better aspect ratio, otherwise it fills the whole screen...
I;ve got a sticky on here about adding games and changing ini files...

Not sure but I think the latest version they've sorted vertical games display not to be stretched, but not sure..

according to this games list, the 1069 in 1 horiz board has bombjack, 1942 and heaps of vert games, hopefully they have black edges

stretching the game is a bit ghetto :rolleyes

There is actually a variety of 1066-in-1 units that's made to play games in both upright and vertical (i.e. cocktail) modes.

I bought my 1066-in-1 built in with a cocktail table, which is just like this one currently listed on ebay:
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&Item=360079787471

These units have 2 menus (i.e. upright and vertical) which you can flick between at the push of a button. They're pretty awesome coz you get the best of both worlds :D
