Arcade Cabinet Platform Banners 2.1

About This File

This is a set of arcade cabinet images intended to be used as banners for arcade platforms or playlists in BigBox. To achieve the look from the example screenshot, I recommend using my corresponding Simple Arcade Clear Logos set along with keltoigael's CityHunter theme.

After being inspired by the arcade section of viking's Hardware Platform Set I set out to create some arcade cabinet images with a more retro look, like the dedicated cabinets of the mid to late eighties and early nineties. In most cases I used Williams Electronics' Defender as a template, adding the marquee, side art, bezel, control panel overlay, and gameplay images of a representative game from each developer to create an end look that in many cases is very similar to the original cabinets. In some cases I took more creative license, such as with Cave's DoDonpachi, and in others simply polished and modified existing images of iconic cabinets, including BurgerTimeCentipede, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and the Neo Geo MVS system.

Hi @daz, thank you so much for the feedback! I'm happy that you're enjoying the cabinet images. I'll see what I can do on the titles you requested - a lot of it comes down to how much art is available.

Just out of curiosity, how are you using the cabinet images - as banners for playlists or something else?

Thanks very much, I have all 3D box art covers for all games in most of each platform & for my Arcade games I use the Arcade cabinet icons in the 3D box folder to display each game & now looks a treat.

This icon set is exactly what I was looking for! Could you please add a generic placeholder arcade cabinet that I can use on cabinets that don't have artwork?

Great work :)

I realised I could just use the generic mame one from the set you said you were inspired by. So no worries :)

 

I would love it if you could a root beer tapper one though!
