OMG cool retro term
I was totally blown away yesterday when I finally got around to install cool-retro-term on my computer.

When I am using my fine flat screen panel to show the conversation with a retro computer system, something does not feel quite right, but cool-retro-term is there to correct it. I can have amber video, white noise, flicker, slowly sweeping distortions, a bulging screen and more, all fully configurable.

I can get the right feeling! OMG, I LOVE it!

That is very cool! I just installed it on my iMac that is right next to my HP-150.
Real Retro meets faux Retro!

Thanks for the tip!

On Macs (I don't use them, but always envied this program) Cathode has been around for years.

Very cool, thanks!

I almost want to smack the side of my iMac to make the glitchiness disappear. Love it.

RE: OMG cool retro term
Do either of them (CRT or Cathode) accurately emulate the smooth scroll of the VT100?

The emulators of https://fms.komkon.org/EmuWindows/ has something similar in its apps.

Guide

Enable "Video | Color Filter | Amber CRT" + "Video | Scanlines | Horizontal" + "Video | Apply CRT Vignette"
