Compatible Vector Monitors
The ZVG will work with any analog X/Y Monitor
including any dual channel oscilloscope that
can be set to an X/Y mode. The ZVG will NOT work
with the Cinematronics X/Y Monitors, as these
monitors do not accept analog input. Here's
a list of some of the compatible monitors:
- WG6101 Color Monitor.
- WG6401 Late Generation Color
- Amplifone Color Monitor (15" and
- G05 Black & White Monitor
(15" and 19").
- G08 Color Monitor (Sega).
- 19V2000 Black & White
- The Vectrex.
- Any dual channel oscilloscope
in X/Y mode.
Note: Monitor Cables must be purchased
Ability to work in DOS environment.
The most effective way to get a ZVG
card up and running is to start by getting
VectorMAME up and running. This includes the
more difficult task of getting a sound card
up and running. Once this is done, it's relatively
simple to plug the ZVG into the parallel port
and start generating vectors.
An understanding of what's involved
in getting power to an X/Y monitor.
requires an understanding of the following
The cables supplied by Zektor assume you have
the power supply block commonly used by the
monitor for which the cable is designed to
operate. For instance the WG6100 cable assumes
the Atari power block, and is wired to plug
directly into it. However any transformer of
25v-0v-25v design, and sufficient current (~5A)
would work, but requires the user to splice
the wires normally going to the Atari transformer
and connect them to the user supplied transformer.
