Question to anyone who has modded an Arcade1Up

Recommended Posts

I own a MKII and a Street Fighter Arcade1Up. The latter I just finished modding. It's running a PC (Intel NUC), Windows 10. When I set my 2 cabinets side by side, the modded one is a LOT dimmer than the original A1Up. I've tried fiddling in the Windows Brightness settings, but it's seem to be at max already. If I up the brightness through the graphics card software, the image will get very ugly. 

Since the displays are the exactly same I can assume it's the controller board I added to get HDMI to modded cab's display. I was wondering if other people ran into the same problem and if they were able to fix this.

In the attached picture the display looks better on the right but IRL the left cabinet is WAY more clear/vibrant.

This isn't specific to your hardware, but I'm curious if you have tried changing/choosing the settings in the Control Panel/Color Management area? You should also have the option to calibrate your display from there.

Thanks for the tip. I've tried fiddling around with this but haven't had any luck. The frustrating thing is, the controller board came with a smalle button board for opening the monitor's menu, but it's all in Chinese so I can't make anything out of it.

If you have an android phone, use Google translate to look at the Chinese text in real time via your phones camera. This works surprisingly well for me.

I Tried this, but the camera didn't pick up the text. Eventually, I bought a new, different model encoder board and now the colors are quite a bit more vibrant. The default UI text is English so that makes it easier, plus it came with a TV remote. Colors are not quite the same as the original, but I'm happy with it right now. Thanks for the tips though!
