A Few Words.
Arcades were wonderful. I miss them. The REAL arcades, full of skill games that
would destroy quarters over and over. If you are here, it is probably because
you miss them too, and want to have a little tast available in your home. Whether
you are a collector that is trying to restore a piece of arcade history, an arcade
hobbyist that is using the classics to say something unique about your machine,
or an enthusiast that just wants to have some great art to hang in your den,
you have come to the right place.
Thanks to everyone that has spent their valuable time very accurately vector
tracing these files. A thanks as well to the individuals that have taken time
to scan & photograph their originals so that we can create vector art files
to share with everyone else.
Some information about this site.
1. The art here is available for your personal non-commercial
2. This site primarily contains vector files (mostly
in Adobe Illustrator format.) Vector files can be scaled
up or down infinitely without loss of resolution & quality,
making them ideally suited for use on a variety of arcade machine shapes & sizes.
The raster files contained on this site are either too detailed to be recreated
as a vector file, or are in need of cleanup & vector tracing.
3. The art hosted on this site was created and submitted
by individuals. Though the content is moderated, there
is no guarantee that the artwork provided is "perfect."
4. Membership is free, but not required to use this
site. Anyone (including unregistered guests) may upload
to ANY section of the site. Anyone (including unregistered
guests) may download all vector-traced artwork. High-res
Photoshop & Jpeg files require registration for downloading
to reduce bandwidth consumumption.
5. If you would like to create or modify your own vector
files, this site contains an excellent Adobe
Illustrator tutorial by "Frostillicus." Included
with it are sample tutorial files.
Some information "about us"
This site was originally started by Chris
Newton (mahuti) of Barrett-Newton
Interactive. He has now had to move on to bigger and better things. Now I, Sirwoogie, now have control over this site. It is still the place to share arcade art. I currently help Saint run the Build Your Own Arcade Controls (BYOAC) website, forum and wiki. I thought my continued contribution to the arcade community could best be served by my IT experience. The arcade community as a whole is pretty dedicated, and continue to amaze me by the quality and dedication. Help keep this place going!
