What input will the monitor in a Commando machine take?
Good morning, good afternoon, and/or good evening.

My boss is looking at picking up a Commando cabinet in good condition. A couple of microswitches aren't responding(probably dirty contactys), there's no sound(not worried about that), but the monitor is good and the physical cabinet is good. The rub comes in with the arcade board, which seems to be in bad shape.

We were thinking of replacing it with a MAME Raspberry Pi(probably a multi-game machine, though I might lock it to Commando), and I just wanted to know which hat to get for it. I'm assuming an RGB hat and some custom cabling will be the best way to go, right?

P.S.: Don't worry. The arcade board will be going up for auction so that hopefully it will be either fixed by someone, or used to keep their copy of Commando running. No wasted parts here.
