Monopoly Takeover DX - BFM - Scorpion 5

Recommended Posts

As I've been getting more confident in Photoshop over the years I've been attempting bigger redraw projects, as can be seen from Nifty Fifty which was about a 50% redraw up to Maximum which is 95%. So here's my next challenge, for a new machine I quite enjoyed playing the classic by Matty.N. As you can see the flyer is of poor quality I so thought I'd give this a go. Shall post updates as and when.

Really should be more productive on my day off, I have a shed load of ironing to do!

Nice work, try adding a low opacity noise layer to give a slightly texturised look to the artwork. Really makes a difference, makes it look less clinical/digital.

Thought I replied to this topic but it's disappeared lol.

Anyways do you know the multi-coloured edge of your above image is actually a neon type light that changes colour

Yeah I'm aware of the top box lighting, just replicating the flyer in this instance.

It's an LED strip, it'll be one of these...

...well four of them.

It came out of my Project Coin £500 Top Box, had to replace it with USB LED Strips as the guy on eBay didn't send me the cables.

The end result looks the same...

Hmm I wonder if the rom controls this, should be fun trying to replicate this. O.o

It's possible that the machine eco system does as it does more then just give power to the device, the rear connectors looks like this...

Had another play with it and It seems to work right, but it's making the LED black instead of purple, so not sure if that's down to the colours being the wrong way around or emulation bug.

Sorry guys, can't delete/edit previous posts last post, It's actually 256/257/258 for the RGB, 259 is for something else that's always on & that threw me off :ph34r:.

 

While i'm here thank you for taking this on Pook, really do look forward to it :D.

Thanks @Matty.n, will be useful when I get to that stage. A quick play adding it to your classic is simple enough but adding to a DX could be a challenge as it uses solid colour opposed to a bmp. Should be fun trying to sort a workaround, I'll send you a tester when ready.

if thats a lamp would you be able to add more than one/colour like the standard lamps now goto 8

 

You can't, converting it to a lamp prevents it from blending the 2 colours when lit. EG: It makes Yellow by Mixing Blue & Red lamp.

Had a couple of hours spare this morning so some more to the top and started to build the reel glass.

Top board now complete along with all the other missing bits n bobs. Only thing left from the original flyer is the old chrome cab on the bottom which I have no clue how to re-create, best I read up and learn some new skills. :)

So after trying to recreate a new chrome cab I've given up as even though I did get a better effect than my first effort above it still looked way too unrealistic.

So I decided to keep the original chrome and ran back and forth through several filters and tweaks to come up with the best option. Ideally I wanted to do my first release with 100% re-created graphics but alas it was a bridge too far.
