CTM-644 Colour Monitor - Adjustments
« on: 01:15, 03 September 14 »
Is it true that you can adjust the screen size on one of these beasts? Anyone done it?


Just wondering because some games don't use the full width of the monitor which well  :-X

Yes, they're internally adjustable, but I wouldn't recommend messing about with those settings. If you stretched the screen for a game that only uses a column in the middle you are driving the beam way off the screen and I doubt that's going to be good for a device that old. You would also need to adjust it while the machine is running (not very safe) and re-adjust it as soon as you ended the game or even went back to the menu.
