A Preview of my Arcade Overlays. Part 1.
Can only upload 12 images per post, so will post more in follow-up posts. Upload will follow pics.
Edit: Tried spaces between pics, and 2 pics per line, but forum formatting seems to ignore this.
Apologies for all the pics, not sure how to format them at this time. It’s 12am here and I’m just about to hit the sack, so I have sort of rushed these posts. Will update tomorrow with links to overlays.
Filesize = 192Mb.

Let me know if any links die, or don’t work. LINK 2 is from my own MS Onedrive, so shouldn’t expire.
I have included configs for MAME, and shaders for each machine. These are just there for those that are new to Retroarch (mostly on my Youtube channel), and are not required, although some vertical machines do require “Integer Scale” = OFF, and “Aspect Ratio” = OFF, to fit the overlay.
Couple of notes:
- I have tried to standardize each overlay, but this was not possible due to differing bezel artwork sizes. But I have kept the aspect ratios as correct as I can.
- All glass screen bezel artwork, with a few exceptions made by me (Bombjack, etc…) are from Mr. Do!'s Arcade website on Mameworld, all credit goes to him for these.
- Each machine overlay comprises of around 15 layered images, including glass effects, dust, dirt, room lighting reflection, arcade backdrops, cardboard monitor bezels, wells gardner monitor image, etc…
- Each machine is presented as if you are stood directly in-front of the machine looking directly at the screen. Only the screen itself is not tilted away from you like a real machine as this would be a bit impractical on a flat PC monitor.
- ALL shaders provided do require tweaking per machine, but I just haven’t had the time. I personally like a glow effect, scanlines, curved screen, slight desaturation - PC emulation looks to saturated IMO. These are not required, feel free to use own preferred shaders.
- Each overlay is made to be used with roughly 70-80% opacity. Again, adjust to suit personal tastes. 100% will give maximum reflection effect, but also more faded washed-out look.
- ALL overlays are 1080p only. They may scale, but don’t have the monitor to test, only a 1080p monitor.
- There are over 70 machines to try, including 2 generic vertical and horizontal, more to come later.
