Comments: While this card doesn't work very well with dmame, it does work well with AdvanceMAME, VsyncMAME, ArcadeOS, and AdvanceMENU. Thanks to the work of Saka and Andrew Lewis, 15kHz arcade monitors run beautifully in DOS, making arcade monitor setups fairly straight forward (you can download the driver here). For AdvanceMAME and AdvanceMENU use device_video vbeline vgaline.

Notes: Although quality did vary greatly between card manufacturers, none of the cards I tested produced a relatively attractive display. The display quality of Pine's card was noticeably inferior and barely acceptable (at most, it could be used as a server card). Cards with this chipset are now available from Jaton. Hopefully their implementation is better than the competition (not that it would take much). They are currently available at www.newegg.com, should you be inclined to purchase one.
