It used to be a part of many a layout, where it filled the void of emptiness on the right of a machine ( or in some cases the left or both)!
Some were dramatic, some were shit (my crazy fruits anyone lol)
Some were comical?
Afaik the only creator that does Sideart regularly atm is Pook.
Is there a need for it with mfme6+
What if the Sideart was on both sides of the layout and the machine was centralised?

What was your favourite Sideart?
What's the worst or pointless?

To me Sideart compliments a layout it adds that finishing touch, the creators final 'watermark' if you like.

One of my best sideart's was on trick or treat
I implemented various lamps to interact within the artwork like various ghosts and the pumpkin
What's yours??

I don't have an issue with it tbh, if I don't like it or want to put the layout in my cab, I just remove it anyway.

i dont really mind sideart, pooks are done quite nicely and does not take away from the layout, also ross does nice sideart, AE also makes great sideart which isnt too much.

 

the left hand sideart on others though can be an issue if you want to remove it. so aslong its kept to the right i dont mind it,

 

the m1adness sideart on both sides was nice as it looked like other machines either side but he didnt take it too far. im not a fan of sideart with warnings and credits and things.

 

so yea i guess i dont mind it aslong as its done right! enhance not distract!

Yes, get rid of it, it serves absolutely no purpose whatsoever.

Lol, not sure you are clear enough there Steve. ;)

 

Like it or not, as long as the machine stays on the far left, then the window can easily be resized and everyone is happy.

I like side art if it is applicable to the game and well executed.

 

Vecs your side art of 'St-Basil's Cathedral Red Square Moscow' on your 'Tetris Dx, release is an excellent example.


For every silver lining, there's a cloud.

what i will say is that when you do the streched full screen with pooks layouts you get a better view whereas with layouts with no sideart tend to stretch more

Some of Vec's side art is better than the actual layout...... :) :)

I can think of something closer to home that feels more endangered.

Got to agree with you there lol, some of my mini layouts were half decent due to the sideart's i sourced.
Reason why I tend not to do Sideart now is
A. Due to we can all make mega large layouts now it's not needed and if so the file size would be much larger and
B. I swam to concentrate more on the actual machine these days and I'm still lazy!!
The more I do today, The less I do tomorrow.

Given i've got my monitor on a swivel arm and use it to play MFME vertically the side art sadly has to go. Glad the tools in MFME 6 make this easily done :D

It can compliment a machine layout when in landscape mode, but when in portrait mode i think the machine on it's own is better.
