NOTES:
- This is a collection of assets I've rounded up in order to help re-create this quaint Western arcade game shooter from 1963. Pictures, videos, reworked graphics, mockups and links are included.

- I've produced some cleaned-up & enhanced starter layers to help create the gameplay, which is viewed through the small window at the front of the huge gatling gun (third attachment is a mockup). Also reworked the backglass to be more project-friendly. The layer files are saved in PNG and also XCF (GIMP format), with transparency work 99% finished.

- Personally I think this has FP-BAM written all over it. You could do it in VP of course, but you'd only realistically be able to depict the gameplay, not the cabinet. With FP, one could actually walk around the cabinet, or have it be one of several interactive objects in a room, then zoom in to the viewfinder and play the game. Not unlike this glorious project.

- Besides re-creating the cabinet, I think the biggest job here would be to hand re-draw the mechanical-art wheel depicting the cowboys, indians and star targets. Everything needed is provided for that in the zip, but it would still be some work doing the full wheel.

- All that said, this is a very simple game, debatably worth the effort to re-create. But the cabinet is a lot of fun (borderline Googie / Space Age / Jet-Set), and the game itself almost right out of the late 1800's in its simplicity, so there's the history angle, too.

    @Free Bally!, Pirates are often depicted with eye patches in popular culture, but the reasons for this vary. Here are a few possible explanations:

    1. **Injury**: The most straightforward reason a pirate might wear an eye patch is that they lost an eye due to injury. Pirate battles, sword fights, and the general hazards of seafaring life could easily lead to eye injuries, necessitating an eye patch.

    2. **Myth and Stereotype**: The image of a pirate with an eye patch has become a stereotype perpetuated by movies, books, and other forms of media. It's part of the romanticized pirate image that includes peg legs, hooks for hands, and parrots on shoulders.

    3. **Preserving Night Vision**: A more interesting and practical theory suggests that pirates wore eye patches to keep one eye adapted to the dark. When moving between the bright deck and the dark below decks, a pirate could switch the patch from one eye to the other. The eye that was covered
