DK side art. Better with or without? (poll yes/no)
« on: June 14, 2020, 09:51:47 am »
So back in the day, from what I gather cabarets did not come with side art.  Having had this mame cabaret for a number of years now I recently decided to give side art a whirl.  Now I'm trying to figure out if I like it or not?

DK is weird because naturally the marquee, bezel and side art do not flow together all that well. I think overall I like the new side art but I would like to get a yea or nay from all you arcade folks. 

(see poll above)

Gotta be honest, I would have gone without the side art on that one.  Generic cabinets should be just that, Generic, designed to take any game, not locked down by their art :)

My only MAME cab looks like a Burger Time cab. It melts right into my arcade lineup.

I could go either way on this one.

I am a fan of wood grain, so I would say no art, but to be fair, it doesnít look bad with it. I donít think youíll go wrong either way.

Ditto! I'd go with minimal effort on this one. If it's already there, leave it.
