I made another attempt at creating an artwork zip for G&W SMB that displays, not just the original handheld device, but all three form factors that it appeared as, including the highly coveted limited edition YM-901 that was given away as prizes for the Famicom F-1 Grand Prix game. While the quality is fairly high, none of them really came out as perfectly as I wanted to, as I couldn't find better images. Here are some notes:
- Widescreen YM-105: This one came out that best as it is the most widely available, and there were more than enough great pictures to choose from. My only complaint about this one is the lack of background "sheen" that was typically present in LCD displays.
- Crystal-Screen YM-801: I was actually quite happy with the device image that I found, although it's a bit on the light side. But there are two problems with the display. The first is that these crystal screen G&Ws had an odd glass-like display, and replicating that through artwork is next to impossible. More importantly, the crystal screen had a distinctly different background image, which had two sets of three triangles on either side of the screen, instead of the red coloring. I tried really hard to find a way to capture that, but none of the images were high enough quality, and I just gave up.
- F-1 Grand Prix YM-901: Google around if you want to find out more about this. There was one incredibly amazing image, but unfortunately it had two fingers on the top and bottom of it and as hard as I tried, I just couldn't get rid of them and make the device look whole again. So I settled on a lower quality image that was complete. Other than that, it has the same issue as the Widescreen version, i.e. the lack of LCD background sheen.
Anyway, give it a try and let me know what you think. Enjoy.
