By the way, I still can't get a 2nd one to work properly. It works... But other parts cut into it that I don't want.

Ah, I just checked my popeye panorama and I see what you mean. I think it's a product of the mirror reflection doubling. Seems more prominent when you hold the light window next to a light. Also seems slightly more noticeable in pictures than in person, but i can see it.

Panoramas are honestly really beautiful to look at. The color layer and mask layer kind of have this 3D effect when you move your head. Everything pops out with vibrant colors. One of the coolest devices Nintendo made imo


Speaking of Popeye, can't wait to have that added someday. Fun stuff


Edit: I also want to say I've noticed how much smoother the controls feel after the latency was brought down, especially on games like super mario and bomb sweeper. It's much appreciated.

I've finally done and uploaded the Mario's Bombs Away, Donkey Kong Jr. and Donkey Kong Circus units. Except for animating the switches and d-pad, but you know.

Great work hydef, the panorama games looks stunning with your artwork!

I'd like to announce that G&W Donkey Kong Circus has now been preserved in MAME as well.

The game is, like the other G&W Panorama games, based on the SM511. The G&W panorama version of the Mickey Mouse game is very likely to share the same ROM as this game but with a different LCD.

Thanks to Mr Jiggles the Christmas Man for helping out with providing the game!

Cheers and thanks to all who donated any of these crazy expensive games.

I just wanna note that I got started on making this template with help from Sean's scan of MBA when he scanned the controls part of the casing and then I Frankensteined the rest and had to straighten the screen to make it work. And the screen shadow somehow isn't noticeable at all from a distance, which is a shame but it's there..

I can't go into too much detail, but it's not anyone donating the games themselves; about a year ago or so I was put in contact with this one tech-industry person who became personally wealthy during the Internet bubble days, and has an interest in digital preservation.

The agreement we have is that we'll try to fund as much as we can from our own pockets, but in the event that there's something particularly rare that we would have to otherwise pass up due to being unable to fund it via collective donations, I can ping him and if he agrees, it'll get funded.

Oh, wow. That's extremely fortunate.

I changed a couple of things since first uploading cause (as usual) I shipped with some errors. There was also a static screen flipped up top which I removed. I might try putting that back in. If anyone notices more errors or anything that could benefit things, please let me know..
