Got my dynamic marquee LCD - now just wondered if anyone has the marquee images?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've just received my dynamic marquee LCD. I got it from eBay for £120 (incl. shipping) and I'm really pleased with it (see photos I made after quickly setting it up). By the way, to add a marquee screen (just in case you're wondering as I didn't know how to do it and it took me a bit of Googling to find it) you go in to BigBox and set the following setting inside General options...IMG_20190803_102729.thumb.jpg.3e7c8d3c29fb0b6745b78401a95c643d.jpg

Here's the dynamic marquee in action.....

I just wondered if anyone has a proper set of marquees for all the systems?

And a comprehensive set for all the games on different systems? I've found this site: http://www.progettosnaps.net/marquees/ which I'm hoping is all the MAME marquees? (I can't download for another 5 hours according to MegaDownload - so will have to wait to find out).

I also found these on the LB download page: https://forums.launchbox-app.com/files/category/19-game-marquee-images/

However, I also run Pinball FX, all the Atari systems etc etc and wondered if anyone has a really good collection of marquees they would be happy to share with me? (or point me to where I could get them).

Many thanks for any help you can give me.

Cheers

John :-)

I am on a project team that is currently in process of making marquee packs for many different systems. We don't have anything released as of yet, but below is a sample of the work so far.

Wow! Dragon they look awesome!

Without sounding like an impatient p***k have you a rough idea when you would be looking at releasing these? They look absolutely superb.

Thanks for all your hard work :-)

No release date yet. We are in the process of going back and using default media for those games that have missing art, so we get better coverage. As you can imagine, it is time consuming. We aren't wasting time however. The project members want these available for our own marquee monitors as well, so the project is very active.

That's great news. Well if there's anything I can do to help then please let me know. 

I shall wait with baited breath!

Do you know where I can get game marquees from by any chance?

Thanks Dragon 🙂

Doubtful you will find full marquee sets for all the various platforms. As a start though there are quite a few marquee images in our downloads section here

I guess he wants the ebay link you mentioned in your OP. I would like to take a look at it also.

This was the auction:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/28-Stretched-Lcd-Screen/333222835318?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

The guy is called "cutho" but I've just looked up their items and there's nothing for sale at the moment:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/cutho/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=

Definitely worth keeping an eye on eBay though as you do get them coming up for sale now and again :-)

That's a great idea! I have one of their cabs as well. Shoot them an email with the suggestion. You never know. I'll do the same.

**Edit** here's his new listing on eBay:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/28-Stretched-Lcd-Screen/333293893842?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3D7d58556e9c724d9e9017eb17fb845bdc%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D333293893842%26itm%3D333293893842%26pg%3D2060778&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507

Hope I'm okay posting that here. Just delete it if not.

I spoke to the guy who sold me the dynamic marquee over the weekend. He's got a few more for sale. Some with some marks on them and others that are perfect. So, if you want one, keep an eye on eBay or give me a shout and I'll pass on his details. :)

Thanks Johnny T Just seen he had another up for sale so grabbed it before it goes been after one for a while and that is very cheap in comparison to anything Ive found I wanted it to fit in my cab but think this will be too tall but hoping I can doctor the cab abit if not it will just sit ontop :)

That's great Napalm. Glad you managed to snap it up mate. I've not started building my cab yet so it will primarily be designed around the width of the LCD. It was a bit bigger than I was looking for but, as you say, they aren't that easy to find so didn't want to pass it up.

Happy days! :)
