  • using PC monitor in 48 in one (which way???)

    Hi guys just an easy question (i hope) i have a large partially empty upright cabinet that i am going to be chucking a 48 in one card in with a vga port. now i have a 21" pc monitor and am working out some brackets to mount the monitor but couldnt find anywhere on this site on which way the monitor is supposed to go? does it go with the bottom of the monitor to the left or right of screen?
    any help would be great!
    thanks

      Yeah, rotated CLOCKWISE 90 degrees with you looking at the front of the monitor.

      I had my monitor pulled apart when I realised I didn't know either...

      Hooked it up and marked the on the back of the tube "this side up"

            What the hell are you guys smoking?

            First response was "Bottom to top" meaning "Upside down"

            Second response was "CLOCKWISE 90 degrees" meaning Bottom faces the left.

            Third response was "bottom of the monitor goes to the right side" which is the opposite of the 2nd response.

            So for the sake of keeping it consistant here, I advise you to put the screen in face-down so that you can see the neck and have easy access to the focus and gun adjustments...

              As long as its portrait (long ways up / down) it dosen't matter which way you mount it (bottom to the left or right, there is a switch on the board that will change the orientation.

                hahah i was just going to go by the picture that jasper showed. i was getting slightly confused by the whole thing but seeing as they have a switch i guess it really doesnt matter.
                what happens with games like frogger and space inv that switch the views for players 1 and 2? can you disable that for an upright cabinet??

                  Yep, you can set it to upright 1 joystick or upright 2 joysticks or cocktail mode.

                    one more note

                    if the cabinet is a 20inch lowboy. a 21inch pc monitor doesnt fit. aslo a 19 inch will fit but due to length of the monitor it will need to poke out the back of the cabinet a little bit

                    just recent experiances have taught me

                      I have squeezed a 20" PC monitor into a lowboy. What you have to do is have the screen mounted on less of an angle. Essentially fix the back of the monitor to the cab, and pivot the front of the screen up some..

                        too easy thanks for that. i have a lesure allied industries red cabinet with a metal cp i think for a 26 inch (sorry thats all the info i know on it) so it has a very large area for the monitor so its going to fit, its already wired for jamma just doesnt have monitor coin mech and a few extra bits, im going to set it up with a 48 in one for now and then once i find/buy a new arcade monitor for it i will set it up as a sf2/mk style machine

                          I have a lowboy, ripped the old and almost dead 20" CRT and whacked in a 4:3 20" LCD....and it fits perfectly in place...... love the look of the flat screen.... really nice.
