Tokio Instruction Sticker Recreation
#387196 - 07/23/20 01:23 AM


I found a couple very small, grainy references images of the Tokio control panel with an instruction card sticker applied. I noticed that the text and graphic for the card was in a scan of the original arcade manual and did my best to recreate the sticker from the combination of the two.

If anyone has a better reference image, or better yet, an actual scan of the sticker, I'd love to see it. Otherwise, this is a rough approximation of what that card appeared to look like:

EDIT: Removing original attachment, reworked art is in thread below

I think I have this and other Tokio stickers in high resolution pictures. I will check it out when I come back home later today.

Great job as always!!

Thanks R.Coltrane, wonderful! In that case I can hopefully just clean those up instead of trying to recreate them.

The are some little differences between your repro and the pictures I have, but I think you will be able to fix these differences without too much trouble. I've sent you a PM with the links to the pictures I have. The first ones are in higher resolution but the latest ones are not that good. I hope they are useful though.

Thanks R.Coltrane for your help with getting better pics of this artwork and your advice! While these won't replace high quality photos or scans, I was able to use them to get a much closer approximation of the original artwork. I combined images from multiple sources to create these and they are not 100% authentic.

So, I'm putting these out here as placeholders for anyone wanting this art until we can find better scans.

Here is the horizontal instruction strip:

Here is the instruction card. As mentioned in my prior post, this is not 100% authentic but should suffice as a placeholder until we can locate better scans or photographs to work from:

When comparing these with the original photos, I say they are excellent!! Very very close to the original material. The only way to do it better would be scanning the real thing. I will keep tracking these down and will let you know when I find something.

Moderator please remove the artwork from the 1st post since that one is pretty innacurate.

Absolutely great recreation !!

Btw Found some decent quality images (marquee and instruction card) of Scramble Formation (Taito's release of Tokio) so we'll have complete artwork for this game.
Hi res scans would be really appreciated of course.
