Have you seen these overlays?

They look like they're decent quality and reasonably cheap...but I can't forgive the horizontal stretching of the images....ugh. Why go to all that effort and not have them formatted properly? Hopefully it's just the camera or my eyes, but almost every one is horizontally stretched...except the Jaguar logo one which is ever so slightly vertically stretched.

I'm sort of baffled by the concept of overlays for games that don't need overlays...

 

I was thinking the same thing, and then I looked more closely (like Power Drive Rally) and it actually does have two buttons on it where it actually says the words.

 

Headlights and Horn

 

 

The Horn is a useless item in Power Drive (as far as I can tell), but it's fun to annoy your friend when you're racing him/her.

 

 

EDIT: Speaking of... look at those prices. The Euro... (or as our British friends pronounce it.. the "uro") has really devalued against the dollar. 5 Euros is $5.61 US dollars! Time to start dumping money into the ForEx!!!

I think they're pretty cool, useless for games that don't need them, but cool none the less. If the quality is good its not a savings account buster and its a cute conversation piece when friends come over.

 

I always bust out my Jaguar overlays when friends come over. Oh the hours and hours of fun we have......

What would be better than overlays is having the molds to these old controllers and adding the artwork directly to the controller front cover. Putting the corresponding button press description on the sides or to the bottom. Probably would cost too much for each but never need an overlay again.

Hey guys, look at the grumpy AA regulars. LOL

I wasn't being grumpy, I'd actually like to get some (as travistouchdown said, plenty of Jag games that don't have overlays could use them). I just can't fathom how someone would go to the effort of making them yet somehow not hit the SHIFT key when resizing graphics. I even learnt how to master that amazing Photoshop technique back when the Jag was a semi-viable console entity...it's obviously some kind of graphics editing voodoo that has eluded some. Maybe a set of perspective corrected ones will be released at a double the price bargain in the not too distant future... ;)

"Hey guys, look at these totally worthless overlays where the graphics are horribly skewed."

 

 

There are several of them that actually have indicators on there for features / controls on the keypad... but yeah, the graphics are stretched. I don't know why they did that... why they couldn't have just put it into the proper aspect.
