I added Atari Generation 1 replacement displays to my website.
It is version 1.0 and the match/credit displays is not tested yet, so comments
are welcome, I'm open for suggestions!

As usual you will find all information you need to make the displays on my site

have fun

Nice proof of concept. I don't think anyone has attempted this as of yet.

Two things--have you looked for narrower digits to better match the original look?

For the player lights, have you thought about doing a brighter SMD to use as a backglight, then possibly a transparency for the text?

Yes, but difficult to find. If you can point me to a product I would be happy to try

A friend of mine is looking for that, as soon as he has first results I let you know
