Is this project really dead? If it is, Necroticart, could you send me the work you've done so far (pm me and we'll come up with a way to transfer the files)? I would like to upload it to public ftp in order for someone else to use it. It would be a shame if all this work just died...
Not in the least! It's just been on Hatius for a while due to... Life.
I actually planned on donating the COMPLETED files over to mamemarquees.com so that they'd be available to order in the future. I worked out a deal with them there. I need to touch base with him again since I no longer own the cabinet. That said. I know a guy who still does own it and I'm still dedicated to completing this project (with the help of other community members of course).
Since it's been quite a while since I've worked on it, I re-read this entire thread and took notes on what has been completed and what still needs to be done. I'd like to officially revive the project and would welcome any help that people can give me. I have all the required files backed up safely.Completed so far:
1)X-men background expanded and stitched together based on 4-player background – Completed.
2)Vectorization of all 6 characters – Completed.
3)Vectorization of “Jump”, “Attack” and “Mutant Power” graphics – Completed.
4)Vectorization of yellow X-Men logo – Completed.
5)Vectorization of “Konami” logo – Completed.
6)Vectorization of Instruction Cards (same graphic x2) – Completed.
7)Front kick plate graphic – Completed. (Needs dimensions verified)
8 )Left/Right side control panel graphic (same graphic both sides) – Completed. (Needs to be sized)
9)Bezel character bio graphics – WIP (Needs to be pieced together with background)
a.Cyclops – Completed.
b.Colossus – Completed.
c.Wolverine – Completed.
d.Storm – Completed.
e.Nightcrawler – Completed.
f.Dazzler – Completed.Things still needed:
1)Coin Door Character arrows (3 characters on each side)
2)Measurement of where everything goes on the control panel. I need it to be accurate so that when it’s printed it fits perfectly over the original control panel with all the holes lining up.
3)Measurement of where everything goes on the Bezel character sticker.
4)Marquee scan (vectorized?) Thought I saw it on e-bay as a reproduction that a guy can easily print.
In summary: Times have changed. My upgraded 8 core graphics workstation computer runs a heck of a lot faster making it a lot more fun to work with these huge Photoshop files. It slices through them like butter now.
We also have a lot more interest due to more people needing the artwork. It was tough in the past to get people to contribute. Hopefully we can all work together to complete this project so that the community can benefit.So... any volunteers?
