Hi. Wasn't sure whether to post here or the News Submission forum, but anyway...
Iv'e made some 'virtual cab' artwork specifically to utilize the extra screen space of a widescreen display. It mocks up a view of playing the games in an actual arcade cabinet, complete with shading, shadows, and screen reflection that covers a bottom section of the game screen. All to make it as realistic as possible.
All artwork comes in packs of 10, and is at a resolution of 1920x1080, making it good for displaying on a 1080p TV, too.
Usage notes: * Download and unzip the individual artwork files into your MAME 'artwork' folder. * All artwork has three versions: - Full artwork (default) - Artwork without screen reflection - Artwork without screen reflection and artwork shading These can be selected from the in-game MAME menu, under 'Video Options'. * The monitor bezel is displayed separately as a backdrop layer. You can turn it off/on independently in the 'Video Options' menu. * The game screen is shaped/shaded to the monitor bezel, using a mask image displayed as an overlay. Works especially well (I think) when using the FANTASTIC shader effects available in MAME, but you may need to tweak your horizontal/vertical position/stretch and pincushion, to get the game image to fit the bezel exactly (just like a real monitor :P).
Most of the original artwork I sourced from Mr. Do's excellent artwork archive, so a big thanks to him, and all other contributors!
