Instructional 8x10 for Mario Bros MAME
« on: February 26, 2017, 04:35:54 pm »
Working on this 8"x10" instructional image for my Mario Bros MAME.
Want it to help someone who's just first trying the  cabinet (and serve as a reminder to me).

Thoughts, feedback, etc.

It's still a W.I.P

Hey Mike,
       I'm not sure having both the D-pad and joystick is a good idea,
maybe just up, down, left, right arrows will look better.
Also all that red text over the green pipe makes it look too busy,
and takes away from the art.

 :cheers:

Appreciate the feedback.
I have not got back to this yet.
But I will, and I'll be making some changes.
I'll post the progress/finished work.

The joystick/dpad image was taken directly from the Nintendo instructional sticker found on the DK arcade cabinet.

So I want to make this as user friendly as I possibly could.
So I also created this image that shows the button configuration for Street Fighter (series) and the Mortal Kombat (series).

I also included a revised instruction sheet.

A little more work.
Kind of have a package here.

Wondering if I should size the main image down to 5x7 (like the MK and the info image with the double warp pipe).

My intent was to have the main image 8x10 with ALL the info...but I can't seem to make it work.
