Update: SNK Athena (Beta) :
- Added experimental support for Screen Flip as a new core OSD menu:

Code: Select all

HACK (Only for Upright cabinet) > Core Screen Flip: Off, On.
Only intended for CRT users than cannot flip the screen (this option don't exist in the Arcade DIP switches).

This feature has been added at the request of several users who are unable to display the game correctly on their CRT screen. It does not exist on the original hardware and is not thoroughly tested, so graphical glitches may occur in certain phases or parts of the game. If you use HDMI or VGA output with the scaler enabled you do not need to use this feature.
