Mr. RetroLust's MAME Lights Out Bezels Revisited 0.05

About This File

Mr. RetroLust created a series of bezels which is a masterpiece:

 

Yet as he uses a rather old version of MAME, some of those bezels are not compatible with the latest releases which use a redisigned artwork system (MAME 0.226 onwards).

as I intend to continue to enjoy his creations in optimal conditions, I have undertaken to update all the lay files and to correct recent incompatibilities.

You will find here the integrality of this collection updated to the most recent artwork system.

 

Based on the version 5.4 of its collection:

I updated/edited all the lay files (but one*).

Renamed some archives to respect romnames of latest MAME release (0.260 at the time of this writing).

Merged some bezels in a zip file to remove any conflict with the classic artworks of Mr. Do.

Replaced most of the screen overlays based on pics with lay-coded ones according to the latest MAME sources (ex: Circus).

Added some color variations (ex: Barricade)

Corrected some MAME atwork system known bugs (ex: Dead Eye).

Added a toggable gear shift view for racing games when possible (ex: Pole Position).

Added generic horizontal and vertical bezels to use as fallback artworks for every game missing individual art file.

If you spot a bug, or a game I forgot to add a gear shift, please indicate it in the comments, I will rectify it ASAP.

*: For the moment I have not managed to update 'Golly! Ghost!' efficiently, the version included here is the original version of Mr. Retrolust and does not work with the new lay system.


It is essential to use the included horizontal.ini and vertical.ini files to make the generic bezels work.
The vector.ini and the vector-mono.ini are highly recommended but not essential.
The raster.ini is only to be used if you use the D3D HLSL graphics mode.

For my part I use BGFX for the rasters and the fantastic ArcCabView shader from Houb:

Highly Recommended! https://www.mediafire.com/file/71eylbzx8oom5ji/ArcCabView_MAME_BGFX_Chain_2.2d.7z/file

 

All hail to Mr. RetroLust , he deserves all the credit.

This is a very nice addon to your MAME environment.  I am using the artwork with HyperSpin and it is such an improvement on the looks!

 

Thank you for all the hard work.
