Mr. RetroLust's Neo Geo Marquees Pack 1 of 2

This is version 2.0.0, I deleted the first version I uploaded here so be advised to overwrite the old versions with these updated better quality versions. See below for more details.

Description
I made these Marquees exclusively for the LaunchBox community as appreciation for the awesome work, software and everyone that contributes to this amazing community. I find the official single 'mini-marquee' system a bit boring with just one small mini-marquee on a huge red plate and as the games came with more instruction flyers and artwork I got inspired by the dual-marquee layout to use the second placeholder for more artwork for a single game, for some games I couldn't find extra flyer material so I used artwork from back-covers and such to fill up the second placeholder. Now it feels a bit more colorful. If you like these marquees please use the review option below as well, much appreciated.

Includes 

  • Marquees for 73 games (see list below for more details)
  • Made from the highest quality artwork available
  • Version 2.0.0 changes: Optimized marquees without scratched texture overlay for deeper colors and contrast on the mini-marquees
  • Cleaned up and color corrected artwork
  • Custom translations from Japanese to English where needed
  • Exclusive Day mode / Night Mode (unlit/lit) for every marquee
  • Including restored/remade/revived Full Marquee versions for some games that weren't available anywhere else before
  • Optimized dual mini-marquee layouts in 21:9 aspect ratio for full screen ultra-wide marquee monitors
  • All marquees are 4K Ultra HD Resolution; 3840 pixels wide with variable height for Full Layout marquees

See this thread for more details on this project: 

Installation
Place the files in "Images\*Name of your Neo Geo directory*\Arcade - Marquee". The file names have the rom name so if the title changes in the launchbox games database these files still get linked to the rom files, please note that some games might have a specific version in the name so you should change it accordingly, example: The Burning fight version that you use could be: "burningf" or as I use: "burningfh". Eassiest to check is by dropping all the files inside your Rom directory so you can compare them directly side by side (that is if you keep your Neo Geo files separated from Mame roms as those directories could be a bit large)

You could delete the versions you don't like; Night, Day, Full or Mini-Marquee or just let BigBox randomly choose a version for you each time (if I'm not mistaken) when you have different numbers behind the images (01, 02, 03, 04)

AMAZING! Night and Day views all lovingly reconstructed in high quality! The only bad thing is that you'll want all of your marquees to look like this. 

Response from the author:

More to come, I'm going to release some more full marquee versions when I've got the time again, stay tuned and thank for your kind review, really appreciated bro :)

Incredible -- obviously a ton of time & love (and probably pain) went into making these.  Thanks so much for letting us all enjoy them as well!

Response from the author:

Thanks again for a great review bro! :) I still have to finish pack 2 but it will contain the same dedication ;)
