I canít tell from the pictures or the video if you kept the graphics underneath the marquee?

The speaker panel?  Yep :)   (I still need to replace these speaker screws with more appropriate ones)...

Very nice work, the artwork is consistent and the cabinet finish is slick.  The music and start-up routine triggers my nostalgia synapses - well done!

Thanks Javeryh...

Sounds like you're nearly finished... looking forward to seeing how it goes.  BTW, I think we used the same artist!

I'm pretty sure we did use the same artist - I would definitely use him/her again.  Your art came out awesome and I'm very pleased with mine.  Easy to work with, quick turnaround time and fair pricing.   :cheers:

How did you create the custom boot video?  IMO, that is one of the best things about your cabinet.  Really ties it all together.

Thanks Javeryh...

I had the idea for some cheesy sci-fi opening with the logo zooming in and spinning etc, with 80s style sci-fi tv show/computer adverty music, then the pixel art splash screen showing while the rest of the pi loaded up.  I originally tried using Openshot (and before that Microsoft Movie Maker), but I didn't get on with it. It was basic and I couldn't get it to do what I wanted - probably more down to me than the software.  I then enlisted the help of someone at work who has an adobe subscription.  I think he used After Effects and pieced all the bits together for me in sequence (logo, stars, music, splash screen etc).

So whilst I can take the credit for the idea, the music and direction, I had help with the artwork and piecing it together into the video.  :cheers:
