Meadows Lanes revisited
10/20/14 07:45 PM

Bringing up a correction issue regarding bezel piece and overlay regarding Meadows bowling game of Meadows Lanes. The flyers were correct afterall while the guess from years earlier was not correct, but that's the way it goes when items are hard to find.

The red shade bezel piece was supported years earlier...although still not vectorized yet.

But...there was a brief discussion on the forum regarding confusion of Meadows Lanes bezel piece. A few years earlier, the only bezel that could be confirmed is the bezel with red color shade. And that is what was supported because it was scanned and supported.

Meadows Meadows Lanes bezel with red shade and no color cover

No one was certain if the red shade bezel used an overlay piece, but it was supported as such with the layout file in MAME source: src/mame/layout/medlanes.lay

The problem is that the red shade bezel appears to have never had a color overpiece. The red shade bezel was always clear imo.

Meadows Meadows Lanes bezel with blue shade and green overlay

There is now proof of the blue shade Meadows Lanes bezel that we didn't have earlier because of this listing that shows the blue shade bezel with the green shade plex color.
It is not a separate color acetate flex piece taped to backside of bezel, but an actual green shade portion of the plex cover that is on the bezel as I can tell. (see auction photos)

The ideal thing would be to actually purchase bezel and have it scanned properly so it could be worked on, but I have already spent what little I could of getting other needed bezels earlier this year.

Anyways, what needs to be corrected is either temporarily disable the layout file (no need to remove because it is correct, but with wrong bezel piece src/mame/layout/medlanes.lay)

Or much better solution is anyone that can do quick editing and make a blue shade color of the bezel piece so the layout file can be used with blue shade while the red shade bezel is updated to not use a layout file.

The end goal is supporting two different shades of the bezel with blue shade having green overlay (layout file support) and the red shade that was done years earlier be updated to no longer use the green overlay.
