Super Mario Bros. Game & Watch artwork
#374218 - 02/28/18 05:54 AM Attachment: gnw_smb.zip 3235 KB (65 downloads)


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.

Very nice. Tested and feels like the original G&W (I only have the widescreen version).
Are you planning to do a version with button animation?

I own a few G&W if you want new scan of SMB or others let me know.

I fixed those issues with the image you mentioned and added a more realistic screen. It's still not super-high res but fine for me on my small monitor.

Hey sorry, what I provided was the extent of my abilities. I was hoping it would just be a start and people with more skill than I could take over and do stuff like button animations, which I don't know how to do.

Thanks for your work. This was the image I was talking about in the sentence you highlighted:

http://dixonbaxi.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/DB_BLOG_BOOK_20151020_0007_Layer-4CB-6.jpg

It's huge and really high quality, but those fingers... Is that what you used as a base image?

Yes, same image. I was going to just remove them but thought to just flip the left side and that would would do it, assuming the light was being cast equally from up top.

I vectored the basic blue unit, too. Just not sure if I've finished it yet.

Don't worry. I though you were collecting images for making new g&w bezels. We both wanted the same. Thanks anyway for sharing those layouts.

Great! Very faithful recreation. I don't like very much the white background because makes the game screen very small, but it's easy to disable if wanted.
Would be very nice if you could make the rest of g&w bezels but it's a lot of work.
Thank you very much for sharing.

I'll certainly try to make others once I'm done with this. Only problem is finding the little pieces of art with the likes of Donkey Kong Jr. or Mario's Cement Factory.

I don't have those to send you a photo.

I bough time ago a g&w book, and in the author's page there are good photos of every g&w game but, unfortunately in low resolution http://www.gameandwatch.at/katalog/21/donkey-kong-jr.html.
I contacted the author about if he was interested in share the original photos but he told me that he had sold them.

Anyway, if you do a google image search with any of those photos you can see some results in high resolution. I don't know if you could use any for making the bezel.

Edit: Here you have a photo of the art in a decent condition https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/mario/images/6/67/Dkjrgameandwatch.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20160721214924

The 2nd link is tiny

He sold the original photos? Damn. Could you maybe find who he sold them to?

I've looked everywhere for high-res stuff and even though about buying that book but it really wouldn't be worth it. There doesn't seem to be a great source for these but a lot is still do-able with what there is.

Btw, if you wanted a good DK Jr, just rip the one from pica-pic. Even the animated buttons. I just didn't want to.

There are some photos with higher resolutions at google images but with less quality (blurry, poor light, taken from bad angle...)

The photos of the book are very small, don't have enough quality for a decent scan. The author didn't seem very interested in share the pictures, that's why I didn't insist on the request.

Maybe if a reader of this forum owns the game and wants to take a photo... we will be very grateful.

Ugh... I actually hate that pic because the of the way I tried to snip the top of the display. I see it every time. Like these SMB skins, I was hoping it would serve more for inspiration.

@hydef What missing piece of art are you talking about? Are you talking about the upper right corner of the cage? Because that's part of the LCD display, you shouldn't need to provide it. I assume I'm misunderstanding something.

Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong with the silver key. Yes, the cage is partly unlocked/missing because I got the first key in the game. That's just it running in MAME.

Oh geez, I'm not sure how I missed that the artwork on the left was missing... And you just made a whole lot of Donkey Kong continuity fans angry by calling junior Diddy Kong

But yeah, I could see how getting clean artwork for that would be difficult. Still, beautiful job so far. Will be far superior to my effort.

What would be the ideal resolution for the artwork to be incorporated into your bezel?

Thank you.

I'm not able to squeeze any more resolution from them so 1920x1080 it is. Also got a few others almost ready in this style but they're not emulated yet.

Welcome.

Those will be fine on that size. Edit: Look great on my screen. 2560x1440

Which ones?

Sweet.

There's Octopus, Parachute, Fire, Popeye, Snoopy Tennis, Balloon Fight.

Also, Egg and Mickey Mouse (both emulated) but have no backgrounds.

Glad to hear that more artwork is coming. I hope this will increase the interest in dumping more G&W roms.

About the new ones posted, why haven't you reused the Super Mario Bros design for the other two? I would prefer the same design for all games, but it's a great work anyway. Nice addition the animated buttons too.

Would be nice to have a pinned post with the whole G&W art. In this one is less visible.

Balloon Fight and Climber are also like Super Mario Bros. in that they have a sorta matte finish, no grain with a different mound around the screen.

Those will show up down the road.

But some need to be replace. Example kcontra and kdribble need a better one. Look like those been wet and damage.

I was talking about this metal frame in Donkey Kong Jr and Mario's cement factory.
Super Mario Bros has a cleaner and "emulated" (recreated) look, while the other two are a mixture between real and recreated. I prefer the fully recreated design.
Is not possible to reuse the Super Mario art for the other two and for future releases?

Edit: By the way, glad to see that you found the little art for the games. I tried to contact again with the author of the G&W book but he didn't answer. Google images will be the best way to obtain the art I'm afraid.

But it's supposed to be a completely different mound and they're all a mixture of real and fake. I ditched the idea of going all vector when I was trying to do the metal, actually and I thought nothing would be better than the real thing.

Well, in the "official" artwork (screens only) the LCD images are vectorized while the backgrounds are actual scans so, in this case is also a mixture between real and recreated.

About the bezels, use a vectorized image allows to standarize the design in all the G&W and avoid the imperfections (like the bended frame in DK and MCF). But I'm not sure about the additional work could represent to you.

Oh, you meant making a scaleable bezel like the svgs.

Not going to happen ) I could have done that with the dual screen Mario Bros maybe but I like keeping the original raster backgrounds from these games if possible. I still end up making bits here in there in vector but I don't care for scaling them for a number of reasons, mainly that they're supposed to be played at a distance and I don't care for crazy resolutions for MAME or old games.

Btw, I asked someone if they could photograph their games and they said they'd help so that might lead to some good stuff.

I added Mickey Mouse and Egg to the drive. Incomplete but might as well put those out there.

And a preview of Balloon Fight, hoping it'll become emulated in the near future.

No, PNG it's more than OK. I was talking about the metal frame surrounding the screen that has Nintendo and the name of the G&W game printed on it.
In MCF and DKJr looks like part of a photography with bended parts and brighter and darker areas, while in the rest of your designs looks uniform in shape and in color. I was thinking of an uniform design for all the games, but this is a personal opinion only.

Nice to know that art for unemulated G&W is coming. I would like more dumps of G&W (and Bandai, Casio...) instead of Tiger, but considering how difficult and how expensive is dumping this kind of games I am thankful for the available ones.

I own a few G&W if you need any photos let me know.

Ah, ok. It's the best I can do right now with the images I have, basically google. If you have any at all and can photograph them clearly that would be great. Scannning doesn't seem to produce better results unless it's a CCD.

Donkey Kong II is something that's emulated but we don't have a great image for it. I found a couple of scans but was holding out for something better.

DKII photos. First one has top panel in a flat surface, second has lower panel.
Not very good quality I'm afraid. Today is a very cloudy day, like next week. If someone can provide better photos will be great. If not, I'll try in a few days.

By the way, Bass Fishin' seems a curious game.

Good news!

I contacted Luca Antignano, creator of simulators of electronic games and he has kindly share quality photos of Donkey Kong II (see attached file). He wants to appear in the credits of the bezel.

Also, check out his great page: http://www.madrigaldesign.it/sim/index.php

Thanks. I had this same file but in lower res (got it from the Bannister forums).

I was working on a vector last night but I'll knock this up as well.

Yeah, so I started working on this and didn't like it. I've totally gone off the idea of using scans, they just look a bit dull. So I'm going to continue to work on my vector. But you can have this, it's playable and the screens look ok at least though the filesize is silly for what it is.

I've posted some G&W photos I did over the Bannister forums but they were not very good and it seems that one guy there will start making 3d models of these Game & Watch handhelds. But I won't hold my breath for those though.

Hydef: Very good pictures, congratulations!! Those models you did are absolutely perfect! To me this is the way to go!

Hydef,

Great work on the Tropical Fish! I hope Mr. Do will add your artwork to the official.

Can you please post the link to Climber?

Thanks,

The link for Climber is the same one as above ^ but I haven't added the Crystal Screen version yet because I don't have the background. But guess I could upload later without.

IDK if you guys saw it but someone have just scanned a bunch of Game & Watch handhelds with a flatbed scanner, and the result is quite good, it might be useful for some new artworks:

Happy new year!

I've reworked nearly all of my previous files added a few more games. All of the Nintendo G&W games in MAME there now apart from Mickey & Donald which I haven't got round to doing at all.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1IbSRYTfKoKDgZfJZTZdnKFSpBvCvgJZV

Here's some new previews:

http://u.cubeupload.com/LeeRobson/Boxing.png
http://u.cubeupload.com/LeeRobson/DonkeyKong.png
http://u.cubeupload.com/LeeRobson/DonkeyKongII.png
http://u.cubeupload.com/LeeRobson/GreenHouse.png
http://u.cubeupload.com/LeeRobson/OilPanic.png
http://u.cubeupload.com/LeeRobson/Squish.png

Just a question for the devs, hopefully this will make sense. I had a problem with Oil Panic. I need the screen LCD vector to have more white space at the top because although I think I've placed it round about correctly on top of the background, it's cropping part of the background image off where there is no white. Is there a way around this? (See the top edge of the bottom screen)

If the screen isn't alpha blended and one of the edges is white, you can work around it by adding another screen under it like this: https://pastebin.com/UDdCthXa

Happy new year to you too and thanks for the fine G&W artwork!

Hi hydef,
I am a huge fan of these old LCD games and your work is amazing. Such a high quality. Thank you so much!

I am also a huge fan of VFD games like the Tomy (Caveman, Tron etc.) and Coleco (Galaxian, Pac-Man etc.) games. Maybe you can create a vectorized template for those games. It would be a good starting point, because all those games have the same shape.

Happy new year.

Happy new year to you too and great work with the artwork!

Please try out the advise from hap and if this for some reason doesn't work out perhaps the source svg image needs to padded with more space above the top segments. If so, let me know and we can hopefully work something out

Btw, G&W Black Jack has now been dumped as well and I scanned some case parts along with the overlay scans. Let me know if you find them useful or if you need something to make the work with the artwork easier.

Thanks hap, that worked and there doesn't seem to be any problems in using it. Updated.

fuzzi23 - I don't have plans to do any games apart from the Nintendo ones yet but who knows.

hal3000 - Your scans have definitely been useful. Not sure about my colours but here's a preview of Black Jack (or Blackjack?) http://u.cubeupload.com/LeeRobson/BlackJack.png

I also almost finished Mickey & Donald but I ran into the problem of space around the screen again, only the 2nd time this has happened, but it's worse than Oil Panic, it needs 3 sides filling on both screens. Is there another way I can do this? Maybe having one large white screen behind each one? I tried playing with the colour values to get white but I don't know what I'm doing, really.

Copy little strips from the edges of the background inlay picture, and put them on the inner edges of the bezel?

I just kept fiddling with the behind screens until it had white space on the sides. It's not the greatest, but here's Mickey & Donald http://u.cubeupload.com/LeeRobson/MickeyDonald.png

If anyone's able to take a quality photo of Mickey & Donald's faces (with the Walt Disney text beneath), I could improve it. For this I've had to find a shot of the faces from ebay, distort it, try and clean it and use a similar Disney font..

Edit: Here's a preview of Manhole http://u.cubeupload.com/LeeRobson/Manhole.png

To Hydef: I am not the target of your posts, so don't feel you need to change anything on account of me. That said-

Does anyone else using a malware program with web filtering have u.cubeupload blocked? Personally I use Heimdal, but there are posts about Malwarebytes blocking the domain as well. Reading into it a little, it seems some scumbags were posting .exe malware files with image extensions there in the past, but whether or not that's been addressed by the host I don't know.

I'll PM you on where to get the other needed files.

Nice work there with both Mickey & Donald and Manhole! I just finished dumping Manhole today so the timing is great

I'll disassemble and scan my Mickey & Donald case tonight and will let you know when it's uploaded.

* edit *
I've uploaded a scan of the bottom case for Mickey & Donald to the dropbox directory, hope it's useful and let me know if you need anything else

Quick question - could I get two representative screenshots each of Manhole and Blackjack, with artwork enabled? As the person who's been doing most of the publicity side of the G&W preservation effort, I'd like to be able to write up a tweet about both games now being preserved, the sooner the better.

Sorry about the delay, I wanted to go over everything I did again. Little mistakes here and there.

There's 2 screenshots of Black Jack and Manhole in the signature and I reuploaded all of the games again, apologies but be sure to download these zips again Mr. Do

Edit: Added a Life Boat preview and Zelda preview

You are on a roll. And that is too funny... I had just downloaded the most recent files earlier this morning, then you go and replace them all again. No worries... I'm all up to date again.

And thank you to MG for scanning everything he acquired... in the games where we have them, you'll be able to lookup the instructions during play.

Hydef,

What awesome work! I see that even more artworks have been added over the past couple of days.

I do see a few issues with the artwork that I wanted to point out. No biggies, just wanted to see if they could be fixed with the layouts:

For example Squish:
When you switch to Screen 0/1 Pixel, Dual Over Under / Gapless, Screen 0/1 standard, the overlays are not being shown. Can you add the overlays to these configurations? Then you can turn off the overlays using the separate toggles in MAME.

When you turn off the bezel, you can still see a white outline of the bezel on the screen.

For SMB:
I really like the animated button presses, but they only work on the new wide screen artwork.

Thanks again for all your hard work.

A-Noid

Hello and cheers!

I have no idea why that happens with Squish and I never usually play with those options you mentioned. All games should work the same way and I haven't defined anything that would disable overlays when you switch views. Guess it's a MAME issue itself?

The white outline is a screen fix which fills a black gap when you have the bezels enabled. If you go back a few posts you'll see I started using it a couple of times after working on Oil Panic and encountering a problem. It can be removed if you go in the layout file and removing the screen fix lines but you'll get the black gaps.

The animated buttons aren't in the dual screen games, or those red switches in the likes of Squish. I don't know how to draw the d-pad or switches in other positions so didn't bother with any of those games at all, but I may do Black Jack and the yellow SMB sometime.

Actually tried that already... the backdrop artwork on Nu Pogodi is slightly different from the Nintendo versions... things don't line up completely correct.

No worries, though... there is a Mickey Mouse in the pipeline that has artwork to be scanned... just need to wait until it's worked on.
