VGA Convergence Check Ver. 2.1
----------------------------------------------------------------------


VGACC is a test-picture which will help you to evaluate the
convergence of your VGA monitor. Convergence determines how
accurately the 3 electron beams (red, green, blue) are are aligned.
Misaligned electron beams result in fuzzy images and/or colored
"shadows" around white images.

The color white consists of all three beams fired up simultaneously,
so white is the best color to use when you check the convergence of
your monitor.

Convergence errors usually get more pronounced in the corners of the
screen, so you should pay extra attention there.

For a real "acid" test, turn on high intensity white (upper case W) and
check the lines up close. Any colored shades? There shouldn't be.
Also check the text screen (T) for sharpness.

The color bar is composed of 8 low intensity colors with high
intensity borders, and 8 high intensity colors with low intensity
borders. Borders are 1 pixel. There is 1 pixel of black between
adjacent colors. Can you distinguish the border on all sides of
all colors? How about the brown border around high intensity yellow?

Move the color bar and text box around to check the various parts of
your screen. Use the center circle to make sure that the aspect ratio
of the screen is correct so the circle looks like a circle, not an
ellipse. Make sure the picture is stable and has no line movements
like "jitter" (< sek), "swim" (10 sek) or "drift" (>60 sek). Also use
VGACC to check the focus of each beam by turning on red, green and blue
respectively.



ACTION KEY
------------------------ ---------------------
Low intensity grid colors... Lower case b,g,c etc.
High intensity grid colors.. Upper case B,G,C etc.
Move text................... Arrow keys
Move color bar.............. Shift-arrow keys
Flip color bar.............. F
Switch to text screen....... T
Coarser grid................ - (minus)
Finer grid.................. + (plus)
Reset colors and grid....... *
End......................... Esc


Finally: The quality of monitors vary wildly from unit to unit.
Insist on trying several monitors of the same type and choose only
the best. There are a LOT of garbage monitors out there, even among
the megabuck models. Few importers/dealers bother to realign their
monitors after shipping. Don't let them get away with it!
