About This File
MAME Atari 2600 Software System Artwork File for use with the Bezel Project bezel pack.
Note that this is for MAME and is not compatible with RetroArch.
This custom version of the Atari 2600 software system artwork file, a2600.zip contains a multi-view lay file configured to work with the Bezel Project Atari 2600 bezels pack. Any game associated with the pack can be set to display it's own bezel at launch. Games for which there are no Bezel Project bezels will open with the generic platform one.
The bezels themselves are not included, due to permission from the Bezel Project team to distribute them not sought, so you will need to download the pack and drop the bezels into the artwork a2600.zip yourself.
You will also need to set LaunchBox Custom Command-line Parameters to allow MAME to select the correct bezel for each game. This is explained in the download.
The a2600.zip artwork file will work whether you are emulating using direct media calls (games with the long naming and a26 extension) or emulating using a software list.
Once downloaded, unzip the file MAME Atari 2600.zip and read the enclosed text files.
Apologies, there is a mistake in the "read me first" text file within the download.
The A2600 game aspect ratio should read 8:5 and not the incorrect 5:4.
I blame cheap whiskey.
The lay file itself is not affected.
