Mega Docklets Style Zaccaria Pinball Wheel Images

For those running Zaccaria Pinball, I have started a collection of Mega Docklets Style Zaccaria Pinball Wheel Images. Below is a sampling.

You will find the complete offerings to date on the FTP  /-PinballX-/Other Uploads/Draco1962/Zaccaria Pinball/Wheel Images.

Nice! Does that mean that you have it running with PinballX? I haven't even had time to test it out yet. Waiting for someone else to do the heavy lifting, of course.

Of course you are.. LOL! Not yet, but working on it. Had just a few minutes the other night to start putting together some wheels and have played a little with it outside of PinballX. The UI is a bit basic which could be good or bad. If they keep with the grid view they have, I don't doubt that we may see some integrated support in the future.  I look forward to seeing if they will put out more cab-friendly controls and perhaps some command line options in the future.

I have most of the logos for the SS tables  in my folder (FTP), most are better quality of what is found in your PSD file.

I'm only missing: Mystic Star and Spooky.

I'm missing 10 of the logos for the EM tables.  I might redraw them in the future.  but I don't plan to ad this to my system any time soon.

I'm not going to spend any money on this until they have full Cab support.

some examples

Thanks for the tip. I will take a look and may update them when time permits. I am hopeful that they are more responsive to pincab support than FarSight has been with TPA. I went ahead and took advantage of the recent sale as they had a decent number of unique tables at a good price.

You could always sign up as a Supporting Member to gain access to these and more. The cost is not that prohibitive for a yearly membership and well worth it IMO.

Don't want to pay? Contributors of content are also recognized by the staff from time to time for their efforts and also receive full access to the FTP and more.

Good work! May be best to continue the artworks convo in the Zaccaria Mega Docklets thread in the Media Projects subforum.

Waiting until you can dump all of the pngs for the bottom logos when done is fine. Thanks for picking up the additional docklets!

EDIT: I knocked these together on www.flamingtext.com - Retro logo and years 2016-2020

Those look great!  TIL www.flamingtext.com :D  I work from home, and today I have virtually zero on my plate.  Let's see if I can stay focused on knocking some of these out.

Thanks. I'm not a Mega Docklet's guy but I'm definitely interested in the bottom logos/table name images. I tend to use those exclusively for wheel images instead of templates or heavy character based images. I like to keep it rather simple.

Also, I've drawn hundreds of instruction cards and uploaded to my folder on the FTP. I've always uploaded my source files as well (Illustrator mostly). I don't think space is much of an issue in case you did want to provide PSD source files.

I started the Mega Docklets while working on GameEx to include with one of my themes likely just before PinballX. 

Of course, with so many systems and tables, it is difficult to keep up with all.

The images below are not Mega Docklets but demonstrate the use of the Retro and Year logo mods for a different set I work on from time to time. Note that the Nautilus logo is one that Carny obtained from a flyer to the best quality he could achieve. It did not appear close to what appears on the backglass of the actual table so I enhanced the color depth quite a bit and applied a wave effect via GIMP. While still not quite the original, it is very close in intent at least.
