Quoted from chocky909:
I played a TNA at the weekend and enjoyed it immensely. However one criticism I have is the quality of the LCD screen. I don't know if this TNA had a faulty panel but the image looked washed out and also had awful viewing angles. I'm 6'3" and if I crouched down to the height of a 12 year old the image improved a lot. The table was next to a Heighway Pinball Alien and the LCD in the backbox of theat looks so much better with even viewing angles and strong contrast and colours.
Before anyone says "The image is supposed to be degraded and old and 80s" I do understand this but the panel looked horribly unsaturated and the fact that it looked different from other angles suggest to me its a hardware issue.
Is this a general issue or possibly a defective panel or installation? Maybe caused by UK power supply?
This is the actual machine in action and as you can see it being streamed the direct video feed looks great, low res but strong colours and saturation. In real life the screen looks much worse.
its my machine its not a UK power supply issue as all LCD's runs on DC. Its just not a great LCD panel, lower quality LCD panels have limited viewing angles, at my height it looks fine I agree with you though if you look from a lower angle it is better, If Spooky titled the screen a touch upwards it would make a big difference, but remember the screen wasn't going to be in the game - its kind of an after thought (read Scott's blog). I'll have a go at the settings and see if I can make it bigger for freaky giants
