Since I seem to be having oodles of fun with the PaperArcade things, someone on Twitter asked for a template.
Not sure why "Upload the template!" hadn't crossed my mind, but if I'm honest, it's probably down to the fact that, in amongst all the chaos of getting my "Icon Resizer" to generate these things, I'd made the whole process very very specific to my development style!
I've been thinking about making a more user friendly app to do this, but for now we'll stick with the DIY method!
Click for Masssssiiiiiive
This is the template I'm using. From there, my app takes screenshots, logos and icons, (which are already sat in the folder, ready to go!) and liberally scatters them throughout the coloured sections to generate a selection of cabinets for each game. (5 for each game)
From there, I choose the best, and upload it to the server.
You can find the end results by flicking through the archive. Games listed with ?Paper=Arcade will all contain a PaperArcade cabinet printout under their Bonus Assets section.
If, in future, I put some effort into making a tool for this, I'll be sure to let you know.
As always with Papercraft's, Post photos of your results!

The 3D printer finally managed to start printing, last night.

It managed about 8% of the print, before the print "popped" off the mat, and everything went horribly awry.
I'll probably have another attempt at it later.
Since it's my birthday, I'll be sitting about and being generally lazy, today.
Nothing much more to say than that!
Lazy Jay wins, today..

If you've been following AGameAWeek for the past few years, you'll have noticed the occasional blip, where I've mentioned having a repeating neck cramp, with accompanying migraines. These have gotten steadily worse, up until early March 2012, when I was curled over the toilet bowl, throwing up a worryingly black goo of sorts.
Enough was enough!
An ambulance was called, and after my blood pressure failed to register (too high!?) I was whizzed off to Bolton general where they continued to test my blood pressure, over and over again. Luckily they also decided to do a CT scan, because that's where they finally found the tumour, nestled in between my brain and my spine.

Assuming that everything on the list is everything I need, then I'm getting awfully close to the end!
