Laser projector playing MAME vector games

I enhanced XMAME to output vector games to an RGB laser projector using OpenLase,  OpenLase doesn't currently support RGB mode so it was added to my version of the code.  All the XMAME compatable vector games work with varying degrees of performance.  Some just have too many lines to display flicker free.  Star Trek has just enough to make a good game and not too much flicker.

Laser Projector
The RGB laser projector was mostly scratch built by myself.  I will write up additional blog posts on the components that went into the creation.  There are home made laser drivers, soundcard dac, soundcard correction amp, and my own design for laser cut mirror mounts.
