I haven't had time to do a new, full artwork pack recently (will do soon, hopefully) but I was asked if i could do a generic, black cab for games that don't have bezel artwork. So, here it is - one for vertical games, one for horizontal games.
I decided I wanted to use them as default artwork that automatically gets displayed with games that don't have their own, specific artwork. To get this to work, MAME has to be compiled using the layout files included in the bundle (see below).
I've included a MAME exe (Windows 64-bit) for those not familiar with compiling MAME. Compiling MAME really isn't that difficult - take a look at this excellent tutorial by Mr. Do!
10 .png image files - unzip all these files (whose names all begin with "default_") into you MAME artwork folder. Note that these files need to stay separate in the artwork folder, and not packaged into a zip like the regular artwork files.
mame64_153_def_art.exe - This a ready compiled version of MAME v.153 for 64-bit Windows, that will display the default artwork. Unzip it into your MAME root folder. You can then rename the file to simply mame64.exe, or whatever, if you wish. It was built using the hi score save patch (hi_153.diff), but that is the only change made to the official source code available at mamedev.org.
vertical.lay horizont.lay - these 2 layout files are only needed if you want to compile MAME yourself. Unzip them to src\emu\layout in your MAME source tree, replacing the existing files there.
Note that some 'special' games that have bezel lamps etc. (e.g. Spy Hunter) will default to using that display. If you want to use my generic cab artwork for these games (without the lamps), you need to select it manually from 'Video Options'. The generic cab artwork is also available in games that have their own artwork. Again, just select from 'Video Options', if you wish.
As usual, there are 3 versions of the artwork, selectable from 'Video Options': Generic Cab - Full artwork (default) Generic Cab (no reflection) - Artwork without the screen reflection Generic Cab (no shading) - Artwork without the screen reflection and other shading.
