The size of the images is big also: px height, when the maximum for the NES Classic arts is px. My take: The organization of this release is pretty, folders for each type. Again, cartridge-look is not what Im looking for my NES mini, the artworks gets reduced and is very repetitive. All the previous artwork sets are preserved by KMFDManiac a know and helpful guy on the sceneyou can find them on his Mega.
But when they put up those on the menu, everything was basically in black, since it was common for title screens at the time to be on a black background. Some arts get repeated times. Sad detail: these images original nes resolution are not exactly the pixel size the NES mini uses. Wow, I gotta take my hat off. My take: Nice, this is what I originaly was looking for, just the original 2D covers.
Nice plus is that this collection seems to get updated constantly. If you need any design or pixel work, let me know! You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2.

See, that’s what the app is perfect for.
Later this landscape profile would be adopted in Japan, with publisher Square being a notable employer of it. They would, a majority of times, be assigned the role of character designer and be responsible for the in-game character designs along with promotional material. The same could not be said for predecessor, the Famicom, whose box art catalogue is almost exclusively Japanese designed.
Subsequently, this western influx would be some of the first tastes the Japanese had of foreign box arts. All cover arts, for both the Super Famicom and SNES, before Country and the vast majority after would still use traditional art techniques. Please note. It has since become home to some of the most exciting and artistically rich box arts in video gaming.

I have somewhat of a love hate relationship with this front-end because it was a nightmare to setup. But that wasn't why I downloaded it.
If you ran the exhibition location, you were greeted to a masterful location which you simply walk around the arcade where you see different rendered cabinets which when done right look fantastic. So, Why am I going on about something so old. Maybe I am a little nostalgic about this old system. Well it appears that this relic is being resurrected, Thanks in part to p and Skurdt over on the forums.
This started with p wanting to learn Unity for his son so he could teach him the basics his son is 13 so he is the right age to learn this stuff. I literally popped in to see if the project was still going and a new section saying 3d Arcade in unity greeted me. So this sparked my curiosity. So far they released a limited build with some basic groundwork for possibly a better version.
While Unity has its own limitations its not as bad as directors with some paid extras that enabled it to work. So what have they done so far. Flashback Challenge Finally I return to writing and this one is a doozy. Something has been bothering me for a while now and here I finally lay down my point of view with the state of gaming and retrogaming in general, grab your popcorn because I feel like a rant because I am in one of those moods.
Flashback Challenge! First off, I play most of my retrogames on emulation Because Collecting old consoles, carts and CD can be impractical due to space and Practicality of the tech breaking down over time and abuse. Even the traveling circus of the replay events show us old arcade games have a part in the history of gaming. Even some of todays practices are based on the old nickel and diming of hard arcade games which ramped up the difficulty in order to get you to part with your money.
Back then, it wasn't considered egregious for you to continue your games or simply play one more games. Recently, however, Lady Decade asked in one of her recent videos, Is emulation ethical. That simple question has been a very grey area for years. Nintendo being one of the biggest culprits for copyright trolling. Nintendo has been trying for years to control the narrative in terms of their gaming history for years.
But why, have they no interest in celebrating their history from the humble beginings, starting with their game and watch series followed with the first stab at the home console market with the Nes and the Collection of games that do with it followed by their foray into the 16 bit market with the SNES Then every console that followed it.
Nintendo didn't always make good decisions, Well without Nintendo ditching the CD add on that sony was developing we wouldn't have the Sony Playstation. Without these mistakes we wouldn't have had the innovations we got during the 90's. Jack, What are you on about, get to the point rather than just prattling around. I loved the arcades during my childhood and whenever I went to one, it was an experience than just sitting in front of a screen with a controller. As I got older and Technology got better for the home console market, Arcades became more redundant over time because it was difficult to compete with with something that looked just as got as the arcade.

They have pieces of plastic inside to hold the games in place, and do a good job of it. If you cut some of the plastic pieces out, they can also fit NES games.
Make sure the cases you buy have sleeves on the outside to put the inserts in. Ordinary printer paper isn't ideal for the inserts. It isn't large or strong enough.
Card stock works nicely, even after a few years of use. Legal sized paper is ideal, the full cover art fits on a piece of legal sized paper. I bought mine from here:. Users upload high-quality scans of original box art, which are then used to create original or custom cases for games. Almost all games have artwork uploaded here, and there are many variants to choose from for each case.
The images are also the correct size for printing. Printing through something like Microsoft Paint is recommended. If you're using the Legal sized card stock, you'll have to go into the page setup from the print menu and adjust the paper size from the drop down menu.
The default is letter size. The covers should slide perfectly into the sleeves on the cases after cutting the white border off. Instruction booklets also fit nicely inside, although there aren't any clips to hold them in place. SNES games go vertically and N64 games fit horizontally. Now the cases are ready to display! Reply 4 years ago. That's weird, it was up the other day. Some people on the forums hosted their images on mediafire, I would know how to search though.

Big thanks to ToW who supplied all the covers for this update, i just had to make some minor adjustments He's become a huge part of this project, show him some love!
There are only 6 prototypes missing from the no-intro romset. The old set was 18 covers, this one is 77 I made a template based on the 4 or 5 i'd seen floating around, and seam was nice enough to gather up most of the front and back covers for me.
I got the logo artwork for the spines from Hyperspin. Have Fun! I've been tweaking coverflow's for various style boxes, check it out! That are in proper proportion to the height of pixels, so they are no longer slightly squished Also added a ColecoVision set. Bulk Rename Utility. The other 14 we're replaced by their European counterparts, because at this point in time the European cover simply looks better. Plus the 14 covers that replaced the USA covers.
Other Notes: -There are a handful of "duplicates" that are included intentionally. I will adjust this.

Level 6.Japan has a long history of well-designed video game box art. Back then, publishers believed that in order to gain commercial success with a title, they had to tailor the look of the box art to fit in with the market and country they were selling it to.
If anything, we now know that the original Japanese designs retained the purest voice and the alternative designs very rarely looked anywhere near as good, resulting in muddled and confusing artwork. The following examples should illustrate this point. In Japan, Phalanx was released with some truly awesome box art and even better artwork on the PC Engine version. They have cleverly distorted the perspective of the ship, pulling it towards the viewer and forcing it outside of its framed background.
However, the American version is just baffling. We have a old dude playing a banjo and a tiny spacecraft in the background. The European design lazily takes the spaceship from the Japanese version and drops it over a badly re-scanned backdrop. Three very different compositions with only one that works.
The Japanese version nails it again. An Arnie look-a-like on the cover set against a heavily saturated red post apocalyptic backdrop. The U. The name was changed to Super Probotector and the in-game human characters replaced with robots, a move made by Konami Europe to reduce the violent look of the game and to guarantee a release in Germany. Just look at that Japanese artwork. It depicts the experience of the game perfectly with its vast, barren alien landscape, dwarfing the main character who is placed at the edge of a cliff.
And that basic yellow typography … Where is the imagination in that? What can I say? Three designs and one stands out a winner. The bustling, detailed Blade Runner-esque design of the Japanese version far outweighs the style of the U. S design — a logo set against a backdrop of a circuit board. The European design is a joke, quite frankly. It looks like something a thirteen year old child would draw on the back of his homework book.
Again, the Japanese version has stood the test of time here with its fantastic comic book illustration. It may have been a movie tie-in game but the Super Famicom version is the one that captures the look of the Batman franchise perfectly.
Here is a good example of three different regions using the same artwork but with different results.Custom Dust Sleeves for NES, SNES, Genesis/Mega Drive, N64 - Download Template! How To / Tutorial
The Japanese artwork is fantastic. Everything is balanced and detailed to suit the dimensions of the box. S and PAL versions have a similar design but with a heavily dumb downed re-draw of the entire design by removing the atmospheric backdrop and simplifying the design of Samus and the alien.
Giant robots! And what better way to illustrate that than having a giant robot filling the cover of the box. The Japanese version also has some nice dynamic perspective going on with the pipes and wires feeding into the mech from the bottom of the illustration, giving the static subject some dynamism and a path for the eye to work its way into the centre of the artwork.
S and European versions rename the game to Cybernator, butcher the in-game character design and dialogue, and to top it off, re-design the box art with disastrous consequences. I love the design of the Japanese version. The artist has managed to illustrate each of the in-game characters perfectly, reflecting the personality and fun to be had with playing the game. The American and PAL verisions however, have an entirely different design that centers around a cold, faceless, predictable drawing of a knight.However, this will NOT effect our bundle deal prices.
