SEGAbits Rotating Banners Bonanza!
« on: December 11, 2011, 10:44:52 am »
I'm certain every reader of SEGAbits have noticed the new rotating banner up top. At the moment, we have 56 banners representing SEGA games and consoles. However, we'd like to see many many more. Problem is, not every game has high res art to go with it.

This is the topic where readers can share high res art that they've found, and can give a shout out to a franchise that they'd like to see given a banner. Ideally, the art is hand drawn, digitally drawn or is a render. We'd like to stay away from screenshots.

I know no reader can know exactly what game has a banner, given the nature of how the rotation works, so I'll be happy to give the "yes, that already has a banner" or "no, that doesn't have a banner" answer.

Currently, I'm in need of some high res Virtua Fighter 1 and 2 art. So if you know of any, please point me to it!  8)

Here's a couple sites with lots of VF images:

It'd be nice someone shared the VF CG Portrait series of CD-ROMs, but I've only seen the covers.

I found a Fighter's Megamix advert in an old Gamepro with lots of VF and Fighting Vipers drawings, I'll scan it some time later today.

Thanks Emmett! Added two Space Harrier banners. Typically, we want one banner per game, but there was too much awesome in both Space Harrier pics to choose.

Added new banners:
Gunstar Heroes
Gunvalkyrie
Last Bronx
Space Harrier
Dynamite Cop

So be on the lookout for them! Some look pretty damn slick.

He deserves his own banner.

Thanks! Always looking to add new ones when a new game is announced or when I come across old art. The logo does look nice up there, doesn't it?

I have to agree the new logo is pretty dope. I like shout out to first mascot.
Off topic but is Opa Opa the website mascot? I have seen his sprite around homepage.

Opa Opa has been used around the site since it started, eventually becoming our unofficial mascot. It makes for easy favicons and icons, plus it's not a specific gender or anything. Plus its one of the oldest characters who is still recognized today. Everybody loves Opa Opa! :D

So I have finally played and finished Viking for 360 not bad it has its flaws but is solid over all, so I went online and found a nice image for the game to use as a banner if their is none for it.

While I am at it I will give a shout out to fighters megamix as well. My favorite Saturn game. This image seems cropable

GameFAQs had some nice Virtua scans also. There good quality.

Thanks Steve! I can add Viking and one of the Virtua Fighter images for sure. :)

Seems that Megamix link was never given, you accidentally posted a SEGAbits link to reply to a topic or something. Can you post it up?

  I was a member of an old and popular brazilian Sega only forum on the past. It is dead now, but they had a rotating Sega characters sillhouette on it, like the ways you are doing with the banners, and I loved it!

 Can you do something like that? Using a small Sega's characters sillhouettes full body on the top with their names over them.

 The issue they had on that time was that they were not able to find high resolution pics of all Sega's characters... even when the sillhouette itself was just a small pic on the top of the forums banner.

 Only the main characters of each series/games were selected to be shown on the sillhouettes. It was pretty fun! :'(
