Thumbs up Vga Scart Cable Guide for Retrogaming

Hi, I'm Josef from Italy, I have made a complete guide on how to build a Vga to Scart cable for CRT TV; using it you can transform your television in a real arcade monitor, perfect for MAME and other emulators like , of course, Winuae; I have tested it with several games (Alien breed, Agony ecc.) with nice results; to see my guide click http://digilander.libero.it/venturi1975/index.html
here you'll find a specific Winuae/Amiga section with photos and descriptions.
hope this can be interesting for you!
bye

If you are Italian this is a great guide, if you are English, google for a different site rather than put up with Babelfish's lame translations.

yes I'm italian... my english is not very good (or not so good to translate my guide) so I have used google to translate it, of course is not the same thing....
unlukely babelfish can't translate from italian to english...

Actually the more you read it, the translation is not too bad.

A lot of TV's today come with VGA input so first thing to do is make sure that you do not have a VGA input

And quite right too! IMHO, you can't beat CRT TVs for console monitors.

I must admit its GREAT guide. But I wont use it, too many wires, electron tubes etc. For those who arent afraid it is a superguide. Respect for your skills, welcome.
