  1. Good point on the overall placement. Here's an idea, and I say this knowing its rather specific, but how about moving the probe droid into that space just a bit and either adding the generators or an ion cannon into the left part of that blank space. It would still leave plenty of white space there so the whole side isn't too busy while balancing out the overall image. It really does look sharp. Wondering where you'll have it printed. I think if it would be okay, I really would like the possibility of using this. I grew up on Star Wars and couldn't think of a better theme for a pin cab.
  2. Something in me wants to see the StarWars logo box down some, Perhaps to give some 'space' to the action above. Otherwise I would use that on my cab in a heartbeat. Especially if Zen releases a cab friendly Win 7 version. It would be the perfect art.
  3. Like where this is headed. I may end up doing sw theme for my pin when I get a chance to build one.

    Disable Current Genre Message?

    @Tulsaboyw: It's funny, but there are already tools to do what you want. Go to the Downloads section and under Third Party Applications download the Rom2XML program. Point it at your directory of games and it will do the rest. It is really quick. As for the genres, I haven't set mine to use them but they are there if I want them. Don't want it, disable Special Art C and don't go to Genres.

    MESS Install for Atari 5200 Tutorial

    I've had some problems with 800xl, but have used another program with it. Will take a look again at using mess later. Will try to do a more in depth thing on controls after I get a couple more emulator install tuts done. (nullDC, nestopia, p64, etc.)
  8. New tutorial for installation of MESS for Atari 5200. Have your roms and games files ready and you'll be playing in just a few minutes: ATARI 5200 with MESS

    Seriously !

    As far as rom management and clrmamepro use goes, another user on another forum I frequent posted a most excellent guide on rebuilding sets, updating and the like. Either that user could simply be contacted, or an updated and more generic guide of the same sort could be created. If anyone would like, I will take this on in just a few days. Soon as a few other things are complete.

    HyperPin Theme Pack?

    If you'd like Bill, I could work on compiling this as an update pack. It could go up on the FTP?

    *Planned and Possible Feature Requests*

    Bill, I know you are on your way with this thing, but Koolbrez67's video gave me an idea. The "bumping" pointer is so cool already, but with the idea of the wheel, I get the spinning wheel feature idea. Instead of the usual pointer, could that special artwork be a .swf file that actually had a moving pointer (like on the Price is Right wheel)? Actually, could there be two files for that pointer, say pointeru and pointerd (and for horizontal, pointerl and pointerr). When the wheel moves up, the pointeru.swf plays. Or maybe the flash would have some other function to read and respond based on the action. This is probably more difficult to incorporate but it just struck me as a cool possibility to an already amazing FE (getting better every day!).

    Astro City Cabinet restoration.

    If you don't have a PC yet, a nice dual core ~2.8 or better should do just fine. 8800 or 9800 vid card and she'll handle most of nullDC.

    The Smoothcade

    Also, what method did you use for the rounded back? I've thought about this for my cabinet and am interested in how you worked that out.
