Moving here owing to silence in Wanted section Ouch

Assuming the plastic overlay that goes over the monitor tube is unobtanium I intend to order some gel sheets from a theatrical supplier or similar. However I'd like to get the colours and sizes about right to avoid buying much more than necessary so if anyone has an original they could check that would be great.

Otherwise it shall be colours by guessing from what pix/videos exist online + powering up the game, centering the picture and measuring the inner circles with a vernier caliper.

It has also occured to me that someone with facilities might be able to print this off on some translucent sheet or similar?


Cheers

Karl.

Suggest roscoe gells.  

Its possible that you could get these cut on a vinyl cutter at a sign shop and then backed with a clear film ??

I've no idea how accurate it is, but the overlay used for Star Castle in MAME may be of some use?

Excellent suggestions. I'll give the Roscoe films a try unless anyone pops up offering an alternate strategy. The trick will indeed be working out how to assemble the inner circles within the blue overlay.

I actually hadn't thought about using the overlays form mame to be honest but must be worth investigation.

Cheers

Karl.
