To this day, I still have never played Asteroids. I should give it a shot.

Also, does Asteroids use vector graphics???

You should it's a lot of fun. It's not as fun emulated, nothing beats a vector monitor.

Old crt's and most other arcade games use Raster monitors, they draw the scan lines one at a time in order, the same order every time and make a uniform hum

Vector monitors draw each line and dot individually as needed where needed. The hum changes, almost musically, depending on what's on the screen

Nice :D

I find stuff like that fascinating. It seems like a primitive form of "coil whine."

Vector displays were both already, and can never be, obsolete.

Yup. Scooped it up for $300, normally they go for 7-800

Picked up a pair of free claw machines, the one on the left is missing the gantry but I got the one on the right working already.

The controller board is weird, no ic chips or transistors just three relays and a bunch of diodes.
