    Arrow International Overview

    1. About
      The project “Soft-15kHz” is about reprogramming of videoadapters and/or their drivers to make them usable with normal Arcade monitors and/or TVs (via SCART RGB <Details>).

      It does this by doing small changes to the windows registry to add typical arcade screen resolutions, as well as tweaking some existing ones, and locking out all others.


    2. Status
      The project is to be considered ALPHA Status but should work as intended.

    6. Supported Drivers und Adapters
      It should work with any NVidia ForceWare (66.93 and up), ATI Catalyst (2.5 and up), Matrox PowerDesk and 3Dfx Voodoo3/4/5 Driver, which themselfs support a large number of modern video adapters.

      Attention! The Windows default drivers are NOT compatible.

      Note: The NVidia GeForce 8-, 9- and GTX series require an EDID-Dongle for resolutions below 512x384.
