MLSchleps' MAME Overlays for Retropie and 1920x1080 displays

Recommended Posts

Taking a break from the Dreamcast covers and am putting together some MAME Bezels and Marquee packs for my Retropie.  I wasn't happy with the available overlays that are out there, so I decided to make some myself.  I think they turned out pretty well and I'll be releasing them on this thread.  Enclosed in each pack attachment will be the marquee at 1000 pixels wide, a bezel overlay with the artwork on the sides and any background picture needed at 1920x1080 pixels and the necessary Retropie config files.  I am using MAME2003 as the basis as this version runs fastest on my hardware, so the config files are tailored for that version.

Using Pac-Man as an example, the pacman-image.jpg file goes in the downloaded images folder and replaces the scraped image file.  Create a new folder in the Overlay folder called "MAME2003" and place the pacman.cfg and pacman.png files there.  The pacman.zip.cfg file goes in the ROMS folder.

Here is a list of where the files go in Retropie 4.4:

gamelist:  opt/retropie/configs/all/emulationstation/gamelists/mame-libretro
marquees:  opt/retropie/configs/all/emulationstation/downloaded_images/mame-libretro
overlays:  opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch/overlay/Mame2003
samples:  home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS/mame2003/samples
ROMS & .zip.cfg:  home/pi/RetroPie/roms/mame-libretro/

Here's Frogger, too.  I will post one or two every day until I get them all done.  I'm starting with the Vertical games and then do the Horizontal games.  Let me know any requests and I will fill them as I go.

That's nice! Are the texts from the original cabinets or did you write them yourself?

The texts are from scans of the original bezels I have found on the internet.  I have clipped them and edited them and put these together.

Here is Donkey Kong:

Today's bezel is different.  This is my first Horizontal bezel and it took some time to do.  Presenting Berzerk!  The video image is the same size as the vertical games: 1080x810 - a 4:3 ratio.  I had to stretch the bezel so you could see the whole screen - the Robot's arm was covering up the gameplay field, so it's a slight modification from the original bezel.

MAME2003 doesn't support layers and backgrounds, so after many tests and experiments, I have come up with this bezel for Space Invaders.  There's no way to do the red and green stripes, but the moon background is there and I am pleased with the results.  Make sure you use the scripts in the zip file to make it show up correctly.

      View File My Realistic Arcade Bezels for Mame (Solo Projects)
      Here's a new collection of my realistic arcade bezels for Mame. These are solo projects I did last year. Focusing on one game at a time rather than doing a bunch at a time. Many of these games I've tackled before, but these are all new upgrades with more detail and authenticity. Hope you guys like them!
