I am working on my first layout and the obvious choice for me was Mario Kart 64. the reason being I own the actual machine and only a classic exists on here right now. My graphics and photography skills are poor and then my machine started having some faults (most likely the PSU) so it is taking a while to complete. I have the bottom board complete and part of the top board, I will post some pictures or a video of how it currently looks later in this thread and would greatly appreciate any suggestions on how to improve what I have so far

Great to see someone else having a go at creating.

Good luck and look forward to seeing the finished layout.

I'm sure some of the experienced DX'Rs will offer help and advice.

Ross has some videos that may help, they have greatly helped me with my first DX, which is still in wip.

Looks ok from what I can see and well done for giving it a go.
You may want to darken down you image as it'll make the lamps stand out better.

Good luck with this,just a little tip,i'd grab some much clearer images of your top glass,this image will be a killer to lamp as the colours on these epoch machines were horrible,i struggled with homers meltdown.

I am actually taking shots of each image as I attempt to do them when my darn machine bothers to load up, I think I need to strip the PSU down and check if it can be fixed before I continue as its been a nightmare trying to get the top board nudge numbers done

Some updated images coming soon, I restarted and have darkened the machine to make lamps stand out more, As my machine is having some unknown error and stopping me getting some lamp pictures I am digitally reworking some of the art myself (painstakingly slowly as I am not great at it) but the machine is starting to look playable, well the lamps I have done so far

http://107.150.36.26/mk64-video.mkv quick video of current status, the board at the top is far from finished, I plan to do each image separately and try to get them looking as close to the actual ones as I can. I will probably fail miserably but it is fun trying all the same :)


As usual any criticisms are appreciated and more so any tips on how to make my mistakes better are obviously appreciated even more

Sorry this is taking so long, I am currently improving my image editing skills to try and raise the quality to be at least playable. I know it wont be great being my first and lack of skills in this area but I want to make it playable. I am reworking most images and colors to more accurately match the machine itself

How does this top reel band look? I did not like the colors and the number 1 from the classic (not the same font as the machine) so I have redone the 

colors and tried to recreate the number 1 closer to the actual style of the machine.
