Can I have the name of the projector you used?, is that you in the video?It is what is commonly known as the Blast City I/O board, so in terms of wiring and functionality the readily available blast city manual will have the wiring diagram (given the lack of megalo 410 documentation).
I've gone with a cheaper short throw now only USD$200 with near enough the same brightness and contrast ratio. Only downside is that is has a fixed lens (hence it being much cheaper) but I don't see that being an issue just not as easy to setup.
The Trapezoid mirror isn't a major issue you can always cut a second mirror, you'll just need to get a second mount made (copy the one you have easy enough). This
is much better than playing games in the wrong aspect ratio on essentially a TV (IMO)
agoProjector mounting not final hence image not being centred and properly sized but behold! System 256 on BenQ MX819ST. No optical zoom so more of a pain to position but half the price of the MW632ST.
Do you think it is possible to make a reproduction fresnel lens for the megalo? It seems to me that it give better picture. If yes what specs and measurements should it have?Its the cab from post #28 (the one that isn't Virtua Tennis 2). It had a shattered mirror when I received it so I bought a mirror from hardware store and cut it to size.
Still retains the fresnel lens, not sure what you mean by dimensions of projection, the Megolo 410 has a 41" screen in 4:3. I just manoeuvred the projector into position until the image filled the screen.
welcome to the restoration, I will give you the measurment tomorrow. I'm also working on a restoration. but your megalo is in way better shape that mine.Hey all. Bumping this thread. I'm gonna be redoing my Megalo 410 the proper way finally. Excited about it. Ordering the stuff Hoagtech linked this friday for my screen. I need to put a mirror in there, then buy a projector, anyone have the proper measurements for a mirror so it can be as original as possible? I also need to fully restore this to jamma. It's been running a DC set up for ages. It's fully playable, but eh, it's not right, and that LCD tossed in there running VGA DC has lived its course.. Here is my 410:
