You'd better do, or they'll be fisty cuffs! But I have to say, especially looking at the Gunship page , it does look bloody impressive, even if your scans take up the amount of space this whole website did about 3 years ago!! 8-)

you uploaded them into the 011005 directory! No wonder I was getting a bit confused &-)

I hope you are spelling 'small' with a capital by now! e.g 'Small' if I have to rename another 'small' to 'Small' I'll!!! I'll!!!! I'll have to write a perl script to do it for me! :-p

I think I might have to! All this scanning appears to have made him a bit gaga! :-D

Anyway, 33 games on the site now, and still lots to do :( and those 33 use up over 200MB already :-o

IMO it's over the top to feature scans of the actual tapes/disks, or is it just me? (btw, excellent initiative)

I'd also go for a forwarding domain with its own index etc. if possible?
Ta!

Actually, tape/disk art is interesting, along with printed sleeves. There are even different versions of the same game, i.e. if it got a re-release

Well the whole thing is over the top really, my girlfriend just didn't understand the importance of us archiving this stuff for future generations :-D but we might as well have it complete.

Please explain? Anyway, I am thinking of transferring the GameBox64 site to it's own web space (where the gb domain points to), since it is going to take up a shed load of space and definitely more than I have available on zzap64.co.uk

40 Games added now. Just added lots of the Thalamus ones tonight, yours on exclusive CD for only £9.99 to go with your "new" Thalamus CD from eBay. ;-)

Have you thought about just hosting all the thumbnail scans on the website and doing incremental releases of the fullsize images onto a file sharing network (in CD sized chunks)?

Well they could be shared on p2p alright, but I'm happy enough to have them on the web site anyway. The space is there.
