Scanned & Custom Overlays

Post by 3DO Experience » Sun Feb 16, 2014 6:24 am

Figured I'd start a thread since I lost all the ones others had made and not with JSII gone I can't get them back.

So post your overlays here, I'm including my template which you can get at http://www.sendspace.com/pro/dl/wg7xjk
It's a PSD that looks like this but is fully editable and larger.

I'll put up two to get the ball rolling. Just save, print and cut out.

It's the only one I have scanned as I used it to make my template.

Never beat Cannon Fodder. Its so hard.

Okay, so I see that Aircars and Trevor McFur have overlays in the manuals. I'm fairly certain the original AirCars release did not come with an overlay. Was there one with the second AirCars version? Was there an actual overlay that came with Trevor McFur? Besides those, it looks like some were made for JagMIND: Bombsquad (a game I don't own) and Cannon Fodder (as noted here). Do you just download those and print them out or does someone make them? I've scanned the internet briefly and the four I've mentioned seem to be the only ones missing from my collection.

Trevor McFur does indeed come with an actual Overlay. Air Cars KA had one, but it was made by a Jaguar community member and was VERY well done, I might add. I can't remember who made it though, so yes, there was one but it did not actually ship with the game.
This is a stick up! Put all of your 3DO games in the bag and nobody gets hurt!

These are made at 300dpi for you to print out. I print mine on Epson Glossy Photo Paper, makes a good print and is thick.

I have one "custom" overlay and I did that doesn't really go with a game and pretty much did the same thing although I'm not sure what brand of photopaper I used. I always meant to laminate it, too. Perhaps a project for tomorrow: look for my laminate amongst the art supplies in my basement. I doubt THAT got damaged from the floodwaters! All three of my Jaguar system boxes have water damage as well as the gamer guide, poster, one of the bumper stickers and system manual.

Thank you for the reply T2KFreeker. Randy Femrite was the guy who sent me some overlays for Battleshpere, Skyhammer, and WORMS. Maybe because I sold him one of his Battle Spheres. (He was the one with the License Plate) I wonder how many he ended up with. I don't know that he ever did anything with Aircars though. Anyway, he had a business card for "The Atari Jaguar Directory" and I guess it's no longer around either.

I haven't heard anything from Randy in about a decade or more, I'm not sure if he's even into the Jag anymore.
