  1. Neo Geo AES official full scans image packs

    This is a collection of full scans for the inserts to AES games for both English and Japanese releases. Admittedly, most of these images are low res and low quality, but they ARE official. If you've ever spent any time trying to find official AES art you know it can be a real headache and full scans are even worse. Since LaunchBox is now using 3D models I wanted to get ahead of anyone carelessly using the first images they can find for a collection.
    You see, Neo Geo games are notoriously expensive, so there are a few bootleggers out there who try to rip off collectors by making repros and selling them at full price as authentic AES games. As a reaction to this, the Neo Geo community has made it very hard to find high quality official scans. You can find PLENTY of fan art for people who just want shelf candy, but as a result of this, a lot of fan art winds up being used instead of official art including here on the LBDB as well as the art on EmuMovies (virtually all of the spines on there are fan art). Sometimes it looks convincing at first but comparing it to photos of the real boxes will reveal tiny differences. Most of these come from Southtown Homebrew. Unfortunately for those of us who want virtual shelf candy in LaunchBox, this means we can either use fan art boxes or go crazy searching for the official scans.  I chose the latter, and this is the result.
    Unfortunately, some games are extremely hard to find. Whether it's due to the community circling the wagons to fend off scammers or just the severe rarity of the game in question, certain boxes do not seem to have full scans available online. Believe me, I looked. This means this collection is incomplete. Some of the games that are missing are very popular titles which is frustrating but I don't know of a way to solve that problem right now. Here is a list of missing scans:
    Art of Fighting 3: The Path of the Warrior
    Bang Bang Busters (this game was released in 2010 so whether or not it's official is debatable)
    Baseball Stars 2
    Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory
    Galaxy Fight: Universal Warriors
    The King of Fighters '95
    The King of Fighters '96
    The King of Fighters 2003 (I found the "classic" variant and included it, but the original art was not available when I searched)
    Metal Slug
    Metal Slug 2
    Metal Slug 3
    Metal Slug 4 (I found the "classic" variant and included it, but the original art was not available)
    Metal Slug 5 (I found the "classic" variant and included it, but the original art was not available)
    Mutation Nation
    Ninja Master's: Haoh Ninpo Cho
    Rage of the Dragons (I found the "classic" variant and included it, but the original art was not available)
    Samurai Shodown III
    Soccer Brawl
    Stakes Winner
    Street Slam
    Super Sidekicks 3: The Next Glory
    The Super Spy
    Top Hunter: Roddy & Cathy
    ASO II
    Bang Bang Busters (this game was released in 2010 so whether or not it's official is debatable)
    Fighter's History Dynamite
    Ghost Pilots
    The King of Fighters 2000 (you will also notice this game is missing from the US releases. This game came out during that awkward bankruptcy phase for SNK and never got a US AES release )
    The King of Fighters 2003
    King of the Monsters
    Metal Slug 4
    Metal Slug 5
    Rage of the Dragons
    Samurai Spirits Zero
    Sengoku Denshou
    Sengoku Denshou 2001
    Shin Gouketsuji Ichizoku: Toukon Matrimelee
    Top Player's Golf
    At some point in the future I might revisit this collection but right now I don't see much use in driving myself up the wall just to find one or two more results. I do, however, hope that others might find this useful and maybe someone else will feel motivated to find the other official scans. These scans are from neogeosoft, neostore and videogameobsessions. There are a few more that I don't remember finding, nor do I remember the source of, but no claim is intended.

  2. Nebula Banners

    Started a project a while ago to create a complete set of stylistically coherent banners.  And when I say complete i mean complete.  I used the LB platform list as a starting point and branched out from there, covering every platform I could think of, and made a few up for my own use.  I went with a "nebula" style background since it seems like that's what kids are into these days and searched for high quality assets.  Obviously this means the starting point was Evan Amos's photos and THK's logos, but I used many other sources as well and quite a few of the logos were just not available in decent quality online so I actually made a bunch of both company and platform logos by hand.

    This collection is US centric so American names and images are given priority above international counterparts.  I'm already working on a set of Euro-centric banners though, so don't feel left out.  After that I might begin working on a Japanese-centric set if I feel up to it.  We shall see.  Comments and advice are more than welcome.  If you notice any glaring mistakes or omissions, please don't hesitate to point them out.  These are actually pretty easy to edit and replace.  Suggestions on changes needed for the European set are also quite welcome.  Anything outside of the obvious (Mega Drive, blue swirl for Dreamcast, different SNES, different Vectrex logo, different 7800 controllers, etc.) is something that I'm likely to miss.  I'm aware that not every one of these platforms is emulated yet but I'm less concerned with that and more concerned with getting as many platforms included as possible.  Please enjoy!

  3. Big Box Revolution

    This is my first ever attempt at making a theme.  It's based on the song select screen from Dance Dance Revolution 5th mix (with some elements from a few others for good measure).  Since I couldn't quite match it exactly I split the difference between a text list view and a wheel view.  Since it copies the overall style of the UI it's very busy looking while not giving quite as much info as most other themes do.  This was by choice to mimic that early aughts design sensibility. To really give it an authentic touch, I changed the community ratings system to the old "foot rating" used for difficulty in DDR and changed the max from 5 to 10.  It's the same rating multiplied by two.  I'd love to get some feedback and maybe even make some improvements!
    It comes with a (freeware) font that you'll need to install.
