Mr. RetroLust's Arcade Marquees (Missing, Rare, Custom etc.) 1.1.0

About This File

Missing, rare, previously unavailable & custom Marquees. Be sure to follow (button above) this thread as I upload it regularly with new Marquees. I try to find, restore, clean up, vectorize & color correct the marquees as best as I can and in max 3840 pixels wide (ultra HD) pixel dimensions. Some times I'll add custom made marquees when there isn't any marquee available made from official artwork and flyer sources, I'll mention it when they are custom made.

1.0.8

  • Added Decathlete, from photo at https://www.nationaalvideogamemuseum.nl/ - not perfect but better quality then currently available
  • Added Donkey Kong, marquee from https://www.arcadeartwork.org/ - Color correction, less red more yellow/orange
  • Added Donkey Kong Jr., marquee from https://www.arcadeartwork.org/ - Color correction, the reds/browns are sun faded, not sure if official art has this intentionally, color correction from memory and what feels more right to me
  • Added Donkey Kong: Pauline Edition - Vectorized from photo, previously unavailable
  • Added Down Town aka Downtown - Reconstruction and vectorization from two different marquee sources, better quality then currently available
  • Added Enduro Racer - Reconstruction and partly vectorized from two different marquee sources, one is from photo at https://www.nationaalvideogamemuseum.nl/ - not perfect but better quality then currently available
  • Added Gauntlet and Gauntlet II, marquees from https://www.arcadeartwork.org/, I always wondered why the field below was empty on the marquees, added speakers, bass reflex hole and speaker grill as originals :)
  • Added Rampage, marquee from https://www.arcadeartwork.org/ - The colors never felt right on previous marquees, these colors feel right to me, might be personal preference (or personal memory lol)
  • Added Rolling Thunder, marquee from https://www.arcadeartwork.org/ - Slight color correction after seeing original in RL at museum.
  • All marquees in 3840 pixels

This  also looks amazing, thanks! :D 

Are they in the LB or emumovies DB - do they get scraped in Launchbox?

Thanks man :) To be honest I'm not sure if I uploaded every marquee of these. I've been working on too many projects at the same time losing focus lol

It would probably go over a little nicer to ask if Mr Retro Lust would mind restoring these instead of just flat out saying these need to be done.
