Just a pity that neither have been updated for well over a year. Still have a useful Metal Slug X marque that I need. :)

GameOn, if you need to make a replica MVS minimarquee for the exhibition,
I've found that the best simulation I could manage....

Was to go to "OFFICEWORKS" print department,
& request that they print it on "100 gsm tracing paper".

It doesn't look quite right - until you put it in the cabinet - then the translucency
& vibrancy is very similar to that of the "real" plastic ones.

If you wanted to, you could cut an extra piece of the tracing paper (same size)
put it behind your replica, then laminate it for strength.
(might be a 'smidge' too thick to fit in the MM holder in your cab? - haven't tried this step)


Hope that helps. :)

While we're on the topic of neogeo, don't suppose anyone has a copy of the control panel layout for the lowboys ?

Edit:

Sadly no, its the one i already have. Looking for the one on this lowboy example (http://www.hardmvs.com/xml/pacific/al4s/al4sb.jpg). Still working on my lowboy plans but i really should go work on my other project before i start another.

looks very similar to LAI with different button arrangements
