1.4 release and probably the final release (unless someone notices an error or gives a suggestion that's to good to pass up), lol. Totally re-wrote the lay file and optimized it. Took out elements that did not need to be there. Added "Virtual Size" to each overlay, so now there are two size choices. The virtual size is just a tad bigger than the actual device. But it looks cool for those who would rather have a size choice of crazy big or closer to the real thing. A friend of mine commented with the "I don't think GBA was that big" LOL!!! Anyway...
You get all the previous artwork, all overlays are animated, two sizes to choose from. Added the latest "Virtual Matrix LCD" screen to the virtual sizes. Still have the ability to run the original size overlays with or without Virtual Matrix (For those who prefer there own scan lines or apertures) and that should be about it for this machine artwork. I think its final...
1.3 release. Added the ability to choose backdrops with or without virtual matrix and animations. Cleaned up lay file and renamed the video options.
Added Virtual Matrix 1.2 LCD emulator and bezel shadows to the over lays.
Recommended settings is to create a gba.ini fil and turn off all post processing to utilize the Virtual Matrix Screen Emulation. However, certain scanline effects and size can enhance the over all look...
Thank's goes out to "eientei95" for letting me know the buttons werent working correctly, the port bits in my lay file was messed up. I do apologize for anyone who downloaded the prior zip of this kit.
I had left old port bit values from another nintendo game and I feel very bad for uploading a goofed up input layout file.
It's totally fixed now...
Updated: Animated the LMR buttons as per Mr.Do!'s suggestion and changed screen dimensions to 660x440 on his advise. Should be 110% check it out!
gba-final2.zip is the latest and greatest. This one is as close to pixel perfect as I can get it. The buttons are perfectly aligned and the control pad rocks back and forth perfectly. I will call this one a done deal!
This Game Boy Advanced overlay kit is stuffed with artwork - 10MB!!! 8 different color variants with select camouflage, carbon fiber and some primary colors for the device. These came out REALLY sweet!!! Not only that, the buttons are fully animated and very precise. The four way button joy-pad animation really looks tight with the values added to the shadows and highlights, makes it look like its rocking just like the real thing. You also have the choice of running each overlay style with or without the button animations. I like choices and so I am giving many with this overlay kit for GBA. As usual, just tab over to the Video Options and there are over a dozen choices!
I used to love my GBA and wish I still had it, had a fortune wrapped up in it. LOL
Enjoy and let me know what ya think...
