Title: Art restoration for Zaccaria/Tecnoplay player start button collars
Post by: PaulSwan on April 11, 2017, 05:39:33 PM
Hi,
I have a game that has damaged collars - are these something that someone here would be able to repro?

Thanks,
Paul.

if they are plexi, i might know someone  ;)
a decal under it like i did the control panels, look easy to create, they are not difficult to vector by the looks of it.

Costs on the other hand, it would be nice to have more "reverse" printwork to keep the costs down..

They are just plastic stickers that go over the top of the control panel. I could print them myself, laminate and cut them out and they wouldn't be too far off the original. Therefore, I just need someone with art skills to create a restored image for the two collars. The 2 Player one has not much left as can be seen :)
Thanks,
Paul.

Can you give me some measures?

It was scanned at 600DPI, so it should be accurate :)
Thanks,
Paul.

Paul, i opened the file in illustrator, its an easy vector, but 450 mm width seems a bit big  :D :D

also i see that the black ring at the button is out of center, i guess that needs fixing too right? or does the button cover that ?

can you provide the following measurements in millimeters please ?

Oooh, looks nice - yes. I'll go measure the dimensions you've asked for.
Thanks,
Paul.

A = 50mm (bottom) to 51mm (top) but is likely supposed to be square :)
B = 58mm
C = 30mm

Thanks,
Paul.

Nice! Thanks :) The two collars are different colours aren't they? Is one orange and the other yellow?
Thanks again,
Paul.

nope, they are the same :

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/pics/color1.jpg)

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/pics/color2.jpg)

as you can see they have the same values.

i did adjust the PDF a bit though, the font of "2 players" was a bit shrunken because it has more characters so it scaled it to fit  ;)

Should be fine now.
See attached pdf

ps, i am almost ready to take the decals i am working on to print, so in this case as they are normal decals, i will print them with the run i am preparing  ;)

What game are these from ?

Paul.


I think he refers to the picture he posted in his first post (see attachment). I assume they had the same color (bright yellow) when they were new but the dirt did a good job on both ;)

I can only pick colors from what the source is ofcourse  ;)

anyway, changed the color to 100% Y  :

Thanks, that's great! The game is Arian Mission in a Zaccaria Universal/Associated Leisure "Neptune" cabinet (Tecnoplay-style cab, the last style).

almost too sharp...they need some wear....take them down and 'work' on them with your shoes, then put them back ;)

Hi,
Whilst finishing up I realized that there are "shadows" on the fire buttons suggesting that they too had collars at one point :| I'd take a guess that they were red to match the buttons and probably had fire & bomb?

Can someone knock up a red set for "FIRE" and BOMB" for me?

Thanks,
Paul.

I took the liberty to change the file Etienne MacGyver made. All credit goes to him! I hope he doesn't mind.
