Hey folks
Very off topic but someone might be able to help

Got a garage game machine. Trying to find an old 19inch CRT screen as this one has clapped out.

Anyone in Sydney have an old screen that still works???

Can you convert it to a flat panel LED?

Yes I can. The unit has new software and graphics card.

Might have to do that so even either would do.

Would be nice to keep it original tho

Keeping it off topic, jeez I ( my parents :) ) wasted some money on that game in my youth. Would love all those 20 cent pieces back...

Zoltan, the only place to find one I'd recommend salvo's etc...

Cool game,
I have over 300 arcade games hooked up to my pc,
and a button joystic panel to emulate the real mcoy !

When I was young I was totally consumed by arcades,
my parents owned fish n chip shops, next door to arcade pinny parlours..

Wonderboy is my favourite of alltime still to this day !

Good luck bro !

Do you have any electronics/IT markets near you Zoltan? They should pop up there.
Otherwise I have seen old TV's and monitors on eBay. Normally can't even give them away.

Thanks guys.

I tried eBay but no 19 inch. Can't be bigger or smaller.

Yeah it is a cool game. Good simple unwinder.

I've got the same. Tons of old games. It's been upgraded. Just gotta get that screen going.

Yeah it's funny you posted an old school game topic, just two days ago I found and downloaded the three Space Quest PC games (from around the mid nineties?) and have already played the first one, needs DOSBox to run it because modern processors are just too fast for that old school stuff :)

Couple more games I remember enjoying - an arcade game called Joust, and Choplifter on the Apple IIe :)

Lol. That's very cool. This is mine. Very traditional. Would prefer a coffee table one personally but...

I did actually measure up and if I took the shroud off from underneath then that 21" might fit you know.

I just told him no but I can message him your number if your interested

Sounds good. Can't lose for 40bucks. I'll use it elsewhere if it doesn't work.
That screen in the space invader unit he made looks bigger too
