The same guy also had the 6 player artwork with the bio text. I think it might have been sold to the other guy on KLOV tough. Shame that the guy didn't scan it so everyone could benefit from it.

I just wrapped up working on this. For the sake of accuracy I kept all the typos intact :)

Enjoy

Looks good but I cant read it at that res.  Also, my 4player cab isnt going to be an xmen anymore so no worries on doing the 4 player sie art.

Nice!

So what do you have left to do?

Right now I have the coin door stickers and CPO left. The CPO is the next thing I'm going to tackle. I need to take my control panel off my game and measure it so I have the correct dimension. The Jakobud measurements are wrong.

As for the the character cards, here is a comparison between the original and restored versions. I tried to get the font of the text as close as possible.

Yeah, I can confirm that the Jakobud ones are way off.

Nope, not dead yet. Work is just slow on this project while I deal with wedding stuff.

I also started talking to Rich from ThisOldGame. He's actually local to me so he *may* end up being the one who gets the files. I don't have a contract with anyone, so it really is up to me who gets them.
Rich also got his hands on some NOS 4p artwork, so it looks like I'm not going to be doing that project anymore. Now I just have to find someone to buy that artwork off of me, because I have no use for it.

Wow.... I'm glad I found this thread.  I have the 6 player beat as well and had kept it in my garage for the past 6 years with 1 or 2 extra pcb board of the game.  If bought the extra board just in case I need to swap out some defective rom or sound chips.  I found out one board would cause the machine to keep restating itself while going thru the rom check. So I'm still waiting for a chance to troubleshoot it :(

Small update:

A friend of mine hooked me up with an accurate layout for the CPO, as well as some more vector assets that I've been looking for.
I'm also working with ThisOldGame on getting the color pallete right (he likes his reproductions to be super accurate).

I will likely get back to this project more in a month or so. I absolutely want to get this done before my wedding, because we're going to have all our games at the reception.

They always say the same thing too, "It won't happen to me! I won't get bogged down with artwork files!"

Then they do.

I just pulled out my CPO files last night to work on it some more. Working with Rich, I need to go through all my finished files a tweak the colors to CMYK match them correctly with the originals. That's going to take a lot of test prints and probably a whole day.

That being said. Rich would love to have these files done before the Portland Retro Gaming Expo next month so we can clean up my machine and make it all pretty for the people who will play it. I'm hoping to get the CPO finished, as well as all the colors fixed on the marquee and bezel.

I also have some vector files of the big side art that will need some work, but then I should have that part done as well.

Glad to see that you haven' been eaten by a pterodactyl or whatever else happens to the 6 player cursed folks.

Holy Resurrection Batman!  LOL.

Just wanted to update:  My buddy Joe and Szabo Arcades has reproduced the artwork.
He grabbed the machine in this vid:  https://youtu.be/MRUkflGI-PA?t=66

Important update:  The artwork is now available!  My buddy Joe Szabo from Szabo's Arcades now offers it in his store:


Check out the episode where we do a walkthrough of his shop and take a look at the never before seen artwork that he re-created, FROM SCRATCH.



Finally!  We can now put this artwork topic to bed!  Thanks to everyone who participated (and shared) their artwork expertise and assets.  Joe ended up creating everything from scratch (100% vectorized and color corrected) based on his own hi res scans of the originals he had.  But it's still inspiring to know that he saw the project through from start to finish.

That was caused by the curse. 


Seriously though, that is awesome that someone has finally finished this.
