About This File

The idea of this set is to place the gameplay video in context, with the hardware of its time. A touch of nostalgia to better understand an unknown material especially for the youngest. Most of the montages use the EmuMovie gameplay videos. The others are mine.

This video set is also available in 4:3 ratio here

I also share the gameplay videos I create with the help of the community.
On EmuMovie FTP :       "Upload here > _Video Snap Submissions > Viking (Platform Video)"



Dad of 2 young children, I dont have enough time to make another video.
Thanks to him, @dragon57 are nicely create new video for this set. You can find additional videos here.

If other people are interested in creating video for this set, here is a Mega link to download a 7zip archive with some source files that will help you stay in the graphical lines.
Thank you for your help and your understanding! ;)

These platform videos are getting very interesting and look fantastic in my Big Box setup. Could you possibly update the Commodore 64 video with the Tape Deck. Also I know these may be different from other platforms but I would really love to have videos for KODI and the XBOX App for Windows 10, Some pics for reference are attached. Many Thanks.

Best collection I've ever seen.  This gives a whole new enjoyment level to my arcade box.  Truly amazing work.
You are to be congratulated.

I love your work, and am using it. But i would like to sort my game by type (Shoot'em Up, Fight etc.), i want to use some of your work for basis, have you work this on after effect ? If this is the case can you share your source ?

These are superbly designed and presented. In BigBox they really grab your attention while not cluttering up the screen. And I really like the inclusion of the vintage 8-bit systems. Hats off to you @viking

Fantaastic set of video artwork - i used them to create a custom theme for Attractmode - i know this is not the place for AM comments but it shows that this content is cross platform.



This is truely a complete setup and looks beautiful, the most complete set of videos ive come across.

Great videos, now overtaken in quality and style by colorful, but they were part of many themes back then.

Unlucky the Arcades felt a bit anonymous compared to the rest, and i personally prefer the 4x3 ones in terms of proportions and centering of the system, but this started it all.
