Why do You use a resolution 760x140? Why not 760x160?

What's the default height for the wide banners?
Mine just follow the height specified by Ebsy in his icons!

Don't tell me that the official size is 160 instead of 140!
Oh no!

LOL I gotta say I did notice they weren't quite tall enough, but I wasn't going to complain.

Comrades!
let's hang up Ebsy by the neck!

Yes... all other Wide Icons I have stored here (but never used)
are all 160px on height!

Hmm...
If I have time, I will try to correct all of mine.

Cheers,

Guys, I apologise about this. When I first started creating them the first one I looked at was 760x140 so I based everything on that res...later on I realised the majority of the wide icons were in fact 760x160 but then it was too late.

However, the 'standard' of 760x160 only came about by people ripping the game banners off the xbox.com site and that's the resolution most of these banners were at. As far as I'm concerned, I'm not really bothered. I only use Cospefogo's great 'realistic' icons for my emulators and my own created icons for when I launch the fba-xxx games. In future I'll continue to make them at 760x140.

One more thing...the submission guidelines at mediaicons.org state that a wide icon should have an aspect ratio of 5.4:1 and 760x140 equals an aspect ratio of 5.43:1. 760x160 has the aspect ratio of 4.75:1. But, they're only guidelines at the end of the day and it seems a little silly to go back and redo all the icons for the sake of 20 pixels. huh.gif

oh PS.
Cospefogo: I noticed in one of your posts you said that your original comic style icons looked too vibrant when viewed on your xbox?. I'm assuming you're still on your composite leads that came in the xbox...box. You're in Europe right? I'd seriously consider upgrading to the RGB SCART cable. My picture improved IMMENSELY when I swapped out the composite for the RGB SCART cable, I never get bleed over any more and your original comic icons looked perfect.

Thanks for those icons, Retroplay. Those will work perfectly. I've got some of the more obscure emulators installed on my XBox and needed wide icons for them too.

760x160 is wrong!
It does not fit correctly in WIDTH on big wide!

Let's go for 760x140, guys!

Ha ha...
No no! You were right since from the beginning.
I have a problem with myself to get kind of extra-excited over
fresh new about thing related to my hobbies!

I started mumbling about without even test it before.
(c:

By the way, I have a new long row of icons for FBA-XXX.
Will be publishing it soon!

Dear,

Unfortunately MAMEoX, MAMEdOX and all MAME family does not
support SHORTCUTS. It is really a pity!

I dream to have this feature implemented in a MAME Xbox
emulator!

Cheers,
Cospefogo.

I finally decided that after browsing this forum for so long I'd finally register to say some thanks!

Turns out I was already registered! Don't remember when I signed up but hey!

So...

I'd just like to say a massive thanks to you for these icons, I've just bought a new TV so I'll do my annual xbox hdd cleanup and get it all looking spanky again.

Many thanks everyone!
