Simulating Arcade Monitor Scan lines on a Modern Day LCD Screen

There are several good overlays included with MAME in the [Artwork] folder.  Just add the command line switch to your front end config.
mame <game> –effect aperture1x2rb  (for low res displays)
mame <game> -effect aperture2x4rb  (for high res displays)
I am using RGB_KB.PNG, attached with a few others I found.  Just detach these into your /mame/artwork folder and add -effect rgb_kb.png to the MAME command line.
I don’t know who to credit for these, I found them a few years ago and Google isn’t much help.

Contact me if you know and I will add proper attribution.
