I've gotten a space invaders deluxe machine and the boards might be shot. I
may build a mame box to put inside of it, however, there is a half silvered
mirror that the space invaders played on. The monitor shows the image
backwards and the mirror reflects the image correctly. I'm looking for a
program for win xp that would completely reverse the image so that the half
silvered glass would reflect the image back correctly.

Anyone know of such a program that will allow this?

Thanks.

If you aren't absolutely set on using Windows, you can do exactly what you
want using Linux. There is a setting in /etc/X11/xorg.conf that will
turn the desktop screen anyway that you want it.

D.E.,

I am not sure if this might help but I will give it a try. Inside of MAME
right click on the game/left click properties/select Diplay tap. Try to
modify "Flip Screen..., Flip screen left..., Rotation and Clean Stretch.

Don't really know Linux that well and would like to stick with what I know.
Thanks for the suggestion though.

Ever get the impression that lamb would marry linux if he could?

haha just kidding

If you could actually marry a linux lady I get the impression she would
be a self conceded BIT*H. The same logic would also dictate that a
windows lady would be a dizzy blonde with lots of viruses! EEWWW!

LOL!

The Amiga would be the _legendary_ blonde girlfriend. The bomb shell of
her day. -Seen and used (blush) by a few oldtimers but emulated and
emitated by a lot of the new OSs...

I have that setup in one of my cabs. I used the -flipx command line flag at
first but it didn't flip all games. So I scrapped that plan and swapped the
yoke wires on the monitor.

......and I suppose that would make MS-DOS the stereotypical 'first
wife'; she may not have been much to look at, but:

- she didn't didn't cost you /nearly/ as much to keep satisfied as
your current one does.

- she was easy to turn on, and was ready for you in seconds. <EG>

- she never became frigid for no reason that you could see, then refuse
to talk to you until you pressed the right button.

- she was happy to do whatever /you/ wanted, /when/ you wanted, without
complaining that she was busy doing something else.

- whatever you told her to do, she did right away, without any endless
dialogue.

- she didn't care if she never got to talk to other wives, and never
complained about not being kept up to date.

- she didn't weigh /nearly/ as much as your current one does (who has
/no/ intension of going on a diet and seems to be determined to gain
as much as possible.)

- you could quickly tell her exactly what you wanted done, without
having to rack your brain trying to remember how you got her to do
it last time and knowing that you will probably end up doing it the
same way next time.

- if you made a mistake, she wouldn't make a lot of noise and make a
point of telling you /exactly/ what you did wrong.

- she may not have been as easy on the eyes, but she was /far/ easier to
figure out.

- if she had a problem, it was quick and easy to find out what the
problem was. (You have had to divorce, then re-marry your current
wife more times than you want to recall, and every time you have had
to start from scratch, usually not even knowing what caused your
divorce in the first place.)

- as long as you were careful about what she ate, you never had to worry
about her getting sick; she couldn't get ill just by talking on the
phone.

- she was /far/ more frugal; she was able to get everything that you
needed done finished faster than your current one can do even with
/20/ times the available resources!

Hellmark is hitting on you. Hellmark try the personals and leave the

Actually, that sounds pretty good, think I'll use that
