Varth Bezel Scan and Restore
#389504 - 01/10/21 06:46 AM Attachment: 300dpi--varth-bezel-ars-invictus.png 19739 KB (5 downloads)


This completes the art set for this game (excepting side art). I've already posted vectorizations of the CPO stickers, a restore of the CPO from a NOS copy, as well as a clean up of the marquee provided by Mr. Do. I found that Jon Exidy on the museum of the game forums (owner of the 1Up arcades in Denver) had an original copy of this bezel and I bought it from him to complete this project.

Attached is 300dpi version, I'll upload the full 600dpi copy to the cloud drive.

And here is the vertical overlay for Varth, finally finished after months of research and waiting, dozens of hours of restoration work, and hundreds of dollars invested. Totally worth it

Outstanding work!

I have never seen the game or played it in emulation but that does not mean I cannot appreciate the original art and your efforts to restore it for us.

$$$ spent?
If it doesn’t hurt to much to revisit the costs involved, a breakout would be educational. I totally understand if you would rather not. I’ve had a few arcade restorations experiences that I just did not want to know what was spent.

Definitely will give this title a try now that you have brought attention to it.

Thanks TrevEB, it's nice to hear my efforts are appreciated!

I wasn't really familiar with this title before I started researching the artwork either. Often for me it's the artwork that draws my attention to a game, and I enjoy the research and the hunt to track down the art, as well as the work to recreate or restore it.

In this case the NOS CPO was $70+shipping while the bezel was $100+shipping. So maybe $210 total. The stickers were just the work to trace and recreate it in vectors. The hours spent on all the restoration etc were the larger part of the investment to me, and the money to obtain the materials for the hours of entertainment the restoration work provides is well worth it IMO.

I hope you like the game too!
