Good work on getting back drop piece aligned with game.

I wish it were possible to further dim the farthest bit pieces of the explosion images (from explosion buytrate piece), but then that wouldn't be preserving the scans of the "explosion buytrate" component so it probably is better to leave it as it is.

Comparing blinddog's great Guided Missile videoclip versus how it is emulated, it appears the outer edges aren't really visible when viewing the videoclip and that would likely be that the lamp piece isn't fully illuminating the outer edges. Maybe the outer edges are visible when playing the game in person, but they don't seem to be when watching videoclip. I guess this part should be mentioned if not documented in MAME source code or at least documented on any of the various info sites so information doesn't fade away over time.

Capturing the explosion effect to be almost as if playing the game from an actual Guided Missile cab was next to impossible imo. I didn't have high hopes for that, but it is better than what it used to be with thanks to blinddog's great work as well.


>I'll post the full file for everyone to try out until we can find a better bezel pic.

As for Guided Missile bezel, it would be great if it could be vectorized, but that is intensive work itself. A bezel really needs to be given the flatbed scan treatment in order for there to be any chance of vectorizing the bezel piece. That's why various bezel pieces were purchased over the years and scanned.

If there is some way to get a different Guided Missile bezel output in which the backlit lamps of the bezel stand out, that too would be great. That would be two different bezel images of Guided Missile: one that is viewed with all images viewable (as if seeing it in daylight) and the alternate would be where portions of bezel is viewable, but with backlit lamps standing out illuminating portions of bezel in a dim lit manner.
