Status of the marquee project?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

@dragon57 mentioned a while ago (when I got my dynamic marquee) that he was working on a "marquee project" to create marquee's for as many games as possible. Does anyone know the status of that project? 

At the time (end of last year) there was nothing released but the project was full steam ahead. I just wondered if there had been any releases? I'm just building a cabinet using the dynamic marquee I got last year so would to be able to use these marquees.

I've also found Mr RetroLusts excellent tool for creating our own marquees in the download section. 

Thanks for any news on this 🙂

While browsing the list of folders/files I noticed the following:  Amiga folder contains CD32 archive and CD32 folder contains Amiga archive.

Thanks for that catch. I have corrected the directory structure.

Hi Alan

I got one by just trawling eBay. They do come up from time to time. You can also buy them from places like Alibaba (I think that's the name of it) but they'll be new ones and are quite expensive (obviously depending on your budget etc).

My one was £120 delivered I think. Or around that? Maybe £100 with £20 delivery. Can't quite remember now. New ones are about £600 - £1,000 I think. 

All the best with your search mate.
