> I call my format "9x16", designed for those of us who use vertical monitors with

> 1. Fill out as much of a 9x16 layout as possible with existing cabinet artwork.
> 2. Avoid empty black space on the screen by using generic speaker panels,
> kickplates/coin doors, sideart, flyers, and custom bezels/control panels where needed
> (based on other existing artwork). If you prefer the no-bezel look of some games
> where I've added a custom one, launch them with the -nouse_bezels switch.
> 3. Every file has a Full_Cabinet view and a Full_Cabinet_Lit view; in the lit
> version, everything but the marquee, game screen, and LEDs are dimmed to create a
> backlight effect.

There is SO MUCH good stuff in here that I am going to need to add in for 2018... you put a TON of work into this.
Any chance you still have the CDRs for all of this? And if yes, can you upload to the Shared Drive?
I especially love a lot of the Control Panel stuff, but I want to be able to have each element as a separate file (CPO, buttons, joystick, button stickers, etc.).
RELAX and just have fun. Remember, it's all about the games.
