Supergun
cthulhu
I'm thinking of buying a Japanese Supergun as I haven't got room for a Candycab (yet) and I've narrowed down my choices to three Superguns: Boardmaster, Pana Twin Long and Vega Jr.
Boardmaster is my favourite because it just looks awesome, but I've read that the picture quality using RGB isn't that great on European TVs. Now I was wondering if that is so because most people don't know that there is a difference between European an Japanese SCART cables and use Japanese pinouts.
Can anyone tell me which one of these systems is the best option for me (my TV doesn't support composite).

If you mix the japanese RGB cable and Euro Scart RGB cable connections you won't get poor RGB quality. You won't get any picture at all :-)

There is however a difference between arcade RGB signals and Scart RGB signals and if you feed your TV with the arcade RGB signals "raw", you'll get a very bright picture. Not so bright that you can't use it but bright.

PS. Be a real man and build your own supergun! Check my first one which I forged together with my amazing sk1llz!

(note the awesome arcade authentic stick which I built with "love".)

If I would try to build something like that, it would look pretty rubbish, so I'll buy a fully built Supergun.
So if I understaand it right, to get a good picture, I just have to turn down the brightness of my TV. What I don't understand is that with a Supergun I would get a bright picture if I use RGB, but when I use my consolized Atomiswave I get a picture that is just good...I guess they wired the connections through the VGA Output Terminal instead of the JAMMA connector.
