@justindarc, did you consider a stretched bar LCD like these (see link below)? If so, why didn't you go with an lcd versus the projector? It appears the total cost would be about the same.

Stretched bar LCD

Yes, I did consider those. But as you can see, I only spent around $400 for my entire setup compared to $800 for a stretched bar LCD. That's nowhere near the same.

Understood. I probably should have mentioned I was looking at the LCD that would fit my 27" cab. That one is $320 + $100 shipping, which is close to your total.

Regardless, many thanks for the details on your setup. It is quite impressive.

Oh wow. I mean, yeah if you can get a stretched bar LCD for that cheap, then go for it. I think I needed 33" for mine and it was just too cost-prohibitive for me.

How did you configure the stretched bar lcd? I purchased one, but it only displays the top half of the desktop ... wondering how to make windows realize the resolution is only 1920x540...?

I switched my HyperMarquee setup over to what I call Display Marquee Fusion using Display Fusion and a custom RocketLauncher user function script I wrote which works perfectly!! I have a 5 display setup all various sizes and can display whatever I want on each display. I use it for my Visual Pinball setup as well since it can automatically change my monitor arrangements on the fly using the PinballY frontend. I been in the process of converting over from PinballX to PinballY a really awesome frontend for pinball.

I had way too many issues with Hyper Marquee and since I already use and own Display Fusion I had an idea why not use that to display my marquee's and whatever else I want to on each display. There a slight delay when switching between my game marquees but that doesn't bother me as it's only a few secs other than that always works perfectly and never crashes or issues like had with HyperMarquee.
