This project is made possible by @Antny, @Kondorito, @Mr. RetroLust, @dssbob and @Orionsangel
*IMPORTANT*: If you want to stay up to date of new packs and updates use the "Follow" button in the upper right corner. Any future updates will not be displayed in the "What's New" section.
The aim of this project is a complete overhaul of the often used cabinet images (Arcade machines, Pinball, and Slots/Casino), including but not limited to:
Higher resolution and quality versions of up to 2160 pixels vertically (Ultra HD)!
All images have a transparent background!
Higher accuracy of different regions and versions of cabinets
All color corrected and optimized to get the most out of any image
Many many new cabinets, previously missing from collections
Reconstructed images, either entirely new photo realistic reconstructions or existing images which had previously missing parts added
The possibilities of this project are endless, it will let frontends and arcade collections look much better as theme creators will be able to use the arcade cabinets category much more efficiently. Creators, Bloggers, Writers, Reviewers etc. will be able to use these images directly in their media and content enriching the community and history. Arcade games databases can be updated. Any creative process you can think of will be made much easier and look better.
Please note that future Mame updates might change names of some roms, you might have to manually change the file name of the image in those particular cases, however when this project is eventually finished it will be uploaded completely to the launchbox game database so renaming them won't be necessary.
So, follow this thread for any new updates!
It will take a while before we finish the entire project but you will be able to download updates along the way
An early impression of the project using the FutureState Neon Deluxe theme as an example how we can use these images.
