Hello!

I'm trying to recreate the Japanese version of Galaxian to create a version for MAME animated artwork but it's hard to find good references. I don't have experience with design, I do have some awareness about Gimp and Inkscape however I'm still a novice.

It took me a full month to recreate this Japanese instruction card, I do speak some Japanese however I don't read or write kanji, imagine how hard this was to be recreated, this is the best I could do:



The button it's not perfect, it's a rendering to be displayed on screen based on this picture:



Thanks to Etienne MacGyver design this is the result:

I'm looking for better references to polish this a little bit, I think the bezel color it's off, the buttons sizes and position, etc.

As Etienne did, how can I give this back to the community?
Is there a place to upload the files?

Thank you.

Nice Job !

As for kanji, look for "KanjiTomo" (https://www.kanjitomo.net)

It helped me alot with finding the Japanese characters.

I did host some of the artwork, but i dont offer it as a service.
VectorLib is a good alternative to host stuff

Zorg is also on this forum i believe  (http://vectorlib.free.fr)

Thank you Laszo and Etienne!

I'll polish a few things then I can make the files available here.

Thank you Etienne, I couldn't make this without your work.

Best regards!

Sorry it took this long, I had to deal with some personal issues.

I'm done with the japanese instruction card, did my best to try to reproduce it the best I could. This is the text:
Code:
スペースロケートを操縦して
エイリアン(異星人)を撃墜してください。

3回破壊されるとゲームオーバー。

5000点でスペースロケットが
機追加されます。

一気に高得点を!!

攻撃中のエイリアンを撃墜すると
得点がなんと2倍·········

高得点のミステリーポイントも
あります·········

得点

待機中
攻撃中

1人 / 2人
100円

This is the final art.

This are the vector files created with Inkscape

And this is what I did with it so far:

I'll try to make a Namco Rally-x, this one it's had to find.
Thanks.
