Super busy around here with baby coming...not much time to do the "me" stuff I enjoy so much.
I have however caught up on all projects (samples coming!) and I'll try and get to the Fix It Felix designs shortly.
Perhaps tonight if I can stay awake after my wife goes to sleep.
The joys of "quality time"..............seeing who can stay awake the latest. :o

Just started this about 20 minutes ago.
Still need to figure out my final spacing and character placement.
Once I wrap this one up the vertical layout should take me no time.
Anyway thought I'd post the preview.

I think I'm happy with this spacing.
I'll try to finalize this tomorrow.

EDIT - Added the start of the vert layout. Still need to finalize the spacing, but I'm tired, I gotta pass out.

Please feel free to post your thoughts, ideas, likes, dislikes, etc.

Thanks all

@ Termin8tor

By all means let me know.
I'd be happy to create something for you when you know what you wan't.

I have a couple of other samples I'm going to share here shortly.
I was given some custom artwork a user had created for a cabinet, AMAZING artwork.
He wanted a MaLa layout to complete his theme. I think it came out amazing.
With permission I'd like to post his artwork and layout.

I've been a lil slow as of late, being sick, and pregnant wife. The PC time is not as much as I'd like...however I'm still in the game !

@ Almighty

Forgive me, I've been slow. However today I will start (and I hope) complete your PS layout.
I'll email you later to firm up the details.

Of course Mike, you can post it. About the cabinet artwork : it's just some copy and paste from other sidearts except for the planet, stars and the font. Most of it is from xevious.

Again some positive feedback for Mike!

Ridge Racer layout for my PSX emu running in Mala.

thanks again and 2(3) more to go ;)

In my opinion the best (launch game) for the PSX, i still can remeber i paid 800,00 gulden (350+/- euro) for this console.

Thanks Almighty.
You've been awesome to work for.
I'm still doing layouts should anyone be interested, vibefx@gmail.com .
I should add my free time as of late is limited, so the turn around is not as FAST..... but I still bang these out !

@ Almighty,

I'll start on your others tonight, as well as fix the issue with the modified menu.

Again, should anyone be interested please email me, vibefx@gmail.com

More samples to come shortly.

Thanks all

Marc that bartop is looking sweet !
Love the bubble top and the lighted buttons.
I've never looked into adding them to any of my projects.
I'll have to email you about them.

Glad your liking the layout !
Almighty for anyone interested has done what even I have not done.........................obtained a custom menu for each emulator he has running.
All themed after his favorite game (specific to emulator).
Almighty and I worked out bulk pricing and the same would be available to anyone interested !

BTW marquee looks good ! Top shelf job !

Time to give back again (BTW Fix It Felix Jr version 2.0 still coming !) ...............sooooo...........
If I get people buying layouts every now and then (when I have time) I'll make a NEW layout available to the public. That was the reason behing the FIFJr layout.

So anyway.........Almighty has been an awesome customer, patient, and provides great feedback. Almight you pick the concept for this layout, MAME MaLa layout theme to be picked by Almighty.

I'll create it and post it here for all to DL.

Thanks !

Looking great Almighty.
I think people will be stoked to see the video when it's all done.
Almighty had selected Killer Instinct as the layout concept for my latest free download.
Had to wrap up some stuff for paying customers first, which I can say is done, so the KI should be made available shortly.
In fact I might even see if I can finish it now !

More samples coming soon !
Email me for quotes if anyone is interested in layouts.
My schedule issues have "kinda" been resolved so turn around is quick again.

Special pricing for multiple layouts, and I'm still including load screen art as a bonus !
In fact..........the next three layouts I'll include load screen, default marquee image and default snap image (used when no original is found).

Almighty has been an awesome customer and I think people will really like his build.
I helped create a custom layout with load screen for every emulator he is running.
Lastly (as seen above) I helped create three very simple layouts for fan games as per request.
Oh...and I did the marquee.

I look forward to seeing the final video when posted.

Lastly I again pawn off my services should anyone be interested.
Bulk pricing if  you want something with multiple emulators or specific menus for PC games, etc etc.
PM or email me for details !

You never pay me til I complete your project !

I just finished a nice Q*bert layout with 2 animations and custom load screen.
I think it turned out really well.

Buyer was really happy and I was able to wrap it up in 48 hours.

I think a video will be up soon.

Just thought I'd mention this again.
To enhance your overall MaLa experience (and Mike Boss layout! lol) I suggest installing and using the ARCADE AMBIANCE PROJECT.
It's awesome !

Also I know some people don't like  that there is no consistency in marquees, snaps, etc. And when I design a layout the windows don't fill up with the image. Well today playing will MaLa I found an option to fix it. Wanted to share.

Make sure to deselect "keep aspect ratio of pictures" and do t he same for "videos".

It does make things consistent within a layout, but will stretch images if you happen to use an info window for displaying other images. I use the info window to display history, controls, marquee, control panel and cab pictures. I always make my own snaps for each game and use faststone to batch resize all the snaps to the same size.


good day.

The batch idea is a good idea.
I know I have a lot of customers who run very specific games lists.
So I thought for the customer who say has 50 all vert games this would be cool to really maximize the layout.

Going to try and get some samples up this week.
I completed a Ms PAC/Galaga combo, and a Q*bert that I think is really cool looking.
Both customers are really happy with the results.

As always should anyone be interested please email me at vibefx@gmail.com

Thanks all

Happy gaming !
