how much do you actually want scanning
i've started scanning my amiga collection, mainly for myself but i'm always happy to share :) question is how much do you want scanning? for example the first game i've come to is the magnetic scrolls collection which apart from the disks, also contains the manual, a getting started guide, a quick reference guide, a read this first note, a map of the guild of thieves, a fish identification chart and a audio cassette for corruption.

normally i just do the box front and back and the disks, so how much of the above, and in general do you also want scanning

OK, naturally we want front and back + diskscans (generally only the first disk of a single game, unless there is something unique to see). Typically, text-based stuff doesn't make it since the game's page in HOL is somewhat of a visual experience (in addition to the info experience, which is handled aptly by the database engine). So manual covers are nice, provided they are more than just a duplication of the boxart. Maps, (graphical) charts, cassettes, etc. are good as they are mostly unique. If an item is mainly text (warranty card, reference guides, etc.) it holds little visual appeal and is not practical as a graphic image (at least for HOL). But if you're up to scanning those items anyhow, I am sure the CAPS team would love you. And any complete set like that which you provide them may bump up new CAPS releases into the present!!!

Belgarath 29 December 2002 18:08

i already dump disks for caps so i'm sure i'll be providing full scans for them at some point, hopefully not civilization though, the size of that manual! :)

i've got too much stuff to scan to think about scanning everything at the moment so i'll just scan the more visual extras, as for disks, i scan all disks together so if you do want just the 1 im afraid your have to split em yaself! ;)

expect the first bunch of scans sometime tonight

Twistin'Ghost 29 December 2002 18:22

Coolish! Yeah, I do the same thing (scanning all disks) and end up having to chop out the first disk for HOL, too. :) So I am glad you scan them all, so I can get your copy for my own cool-ection.

I've often wondered how big a CAPS release will be like Civ or F-19 Stealth Fighter or M1 Tank Platoon. Sheesh! And certainly those manuals will have to be unbound to even scan anyhow. I don't even wanna think about those... :D

haha oops i posted in the wrong place, anyway what i was saying was...

I have Ultima 1,2,3,4,5,6 and the free 7th game (aminet iirc), completed all if i remember correctly, anyway ultima 1->4 was the best ones IMHO!! :)

btw ebay is weird...people setting "RARE" on cd32 games which still are in the shops lol! , so dont always listen to them :)

CodyJarrett 04 January 2003 01:11

You said in the other post that you have Ultimas 1-6 on the Amiga. In original boxes?

Are you sure you have Ultima 1 & 2? Do they actually exist on the Amiga?

Toaks 04 January 2003 01:21

yeah i have em all , sadly one of the ultima boxes (early ones) is flatter than a chineese titty ;(
but the rest of the boxes was ok last i checked (i think u got the scans of em eh??)
(all my boxes is preservated, ie i dont use em and they aint in the sun anymore, and thats why i try to support whdload as much as possible also, so that i can stack the disks and boxes away, but imagine 1400 boxes in my house...well since i dont live in a castle i had to stcak away alot of the NON WHD'D games also ;( for now anyway, but yes i will scan it for u. )
if not i will scan em as soon as i either fix the scanner or get a new one.

oh btw.... since u asked.... check this :)

Any chance of making images of the floppies of Ultima 1&2? We need screenshots for the HOL too.
