Hi

If there is anything i have that's not on there is it worth me scanning it and sending it over? is there are format you require?

For example... Elite on there does not have a scan of the keyboard overlay or the floppy disc version. I have these and can send them over - is this the kind of thing that is required?

Well I'm not looking for full game scans at the moment since I do have lots more to do, but extra items for games already up there would be worth getting. e.g. that Elite overlay.

Here's the format needed.

Scan at 300dpi, 24 bit colour

Name the file:

<gamename><company><format><scantype>XX.jpg

e.g. gamename of Elite
company of Firebord
format of Disk/Tape or Cart
scantype of Inlay/Instructions/Misc/Disk/Tape or Cart

and XX = 01 to 99

The elite keyboard overlay would be a Misc type scan and considering there are already 35 Misc scans, the next number would be 36

SO:

The filename would be:

EliteFirebirdTape Misc36.jpg

Any questions? :)

Thanks, I will get them over to you this week.

This really is a great resource protecting them for the future. Very well done to all involved!

Glad you appreciate it!

That Tass game looks kinda interesting alright. Very nice presentation with that "newspaper" as well! The White Wizard seemed to like it too, in the review.

Just a mention that the Gamebox 64 site has been mentioned on RetroGaming Radio as I dropped Shane a hint about it a month ago.
Have not heard it yet as the whole show is 3 hours + this month, tune in on ..

Must get adding to the site again, but I spend 8 hours a day in a repetitive, monotimus (?), boring job so I can't face looking at a computer when I get home, esp. if it's to do repetitive stuff with GB64 :(

Damn this capitalist society we live in!!! :((
