Well see that's you, many of use use artwork for documentation purposes, which makes fakes unacceptable.  Not that it isn't a good project, there's just no way it'll ever get into the official packs.

No no, not just him.  Me too.  If nobody has the real marquee, then gimme a fake.    It's better than nada.

The majority of the fakes were created from the flyer. Most of the other fakes use a reworked title screen. A few of the fakes are real marquees/graphics from other games (console, electromechanical, etc) with the same title. A scant few were created completely in photoshop, and those are all very simple, just a title, usually in the Atari font.

I have 50 mb of space w/ unlimited bandwidth, however, I am using most it right now.  If I took everything down, which I would be willing to do, I could host the marquees in installments and have each installment up for a week or two.

Another idea for getting these things out would be to put them on a newsgroup.

alt.binaries.mame would be good!

please put a torrent up. I'd have no problem keeping it up for a day or two, and I'm sure most of the others wouldn't either. Once a bunch of people have it, it will be much more accesible.
first off your and idiot

Fakes aren't horribly bad from an FE perspective as it is better than nothing. Better though to label them fake-gamename.png or something and change the FE to look for the real marquee then if it doesn't exist pull in the fake. Keep you from doing alot of digging to get rid of fake marquess when the real ones become available. Someone would probably distribute it as the Fake Marquee completion pack or something.

Well i have never used torent before but i agree with pointdablame about using a p2p system. I have cable and will share it at max bandwith for a number of days after i recieve it. it would atleast get it out to people.

Are the Neo Geo Mini-Marquees placed in the one-slot generic Neo Geo marquee available anywhere?  I would love to have these so that they fit (stretch) well when used with MAMEwah.  Anyone have these?  Would love to download a complete set of them.
Thanks.

A few of the Neo Geo marquees made it into one slot marquees. Most have not yet, one of the reasons I wasn't ready to "release" the fake marquee pack yet.

I can host the file, at least until we get an idea of how much *simultaneous* bandwidth usage we are talking about.  If it overloads my bonded T1's, I'll have to shuffle some stuff around and/or remove it... but if simultaneous transfers do not put too much stress on my frame connection, there should be no problem.

In fact, if you can split these up into 3 or 4 files that people can download individually at a time, it may ease the stress and not cause any problems.

You can PM me if you want more information on where you can upload it (and I'll get your account created).

Super cool project to tackle.
I'd also be interested in getting your complete set of images.

Question................do you still need a default image for "no snap found?"
If so let me know, perhaps  I can do something for you.

It was pretty complete back in 2003 when I was working on it. I imagine they have added a few games since then.
