Provide some box scans
 
If you own some Amiga games and a scanner I would greatly appreciate if you could provide me with a front and left side scan of the box.

I'm making some 3D renders of Amiga boxes to be used in a emulation front end. So far I've only made about 14 boxes (because of lacking side scans), so any scan would help out!

Here is an example:

Currently the following boxes are done (WHDLoad names, non-WHDLoad listed beneath):

Hi bLAZER,

I own only Another World boxed, but what resolution would you be looking for?

watertonian 24 April 2011 18:31

I have a ton of boxes, anything in specific you need?

bLAZER 25 April 2011 00:23

@Prowler Would be great if you could scan that. The bigger the better, but no more than 300 dpi is needed.

@watertonian Would be awesome if you could help me out. Basically it's every game in WHDLoad, you could maybe take the biggest hits to start with, except the following which I already have done: (but I'm greateful for any game)
armalyte
cannon fodder
chaos engine
denaris
fernandez must die
godfather
life&death
prince of persia
striker
supferfrog
war in the gulf

I'll scan that tomorrow for you at 300 dpi and tell you where to grab it! :)

It's the 1991 US Gold box. Just the top and LH side, yes?

bLAZER 25 April 2011 00:44

Excellent! Front and left.... the ones you can see on the example box I posted above. By the way just don't destroy it too much with jpeg...

You can have them as raw bitmaps if you like. :)

bLAZER 25 April 2011 02:13

Hehe, no need, just so you don't save them with 5% quality which leaves a 25kb image :)

fgh 25 April 2011 19:00

Excellent work bLAZER. And good job on the hyperspin wheels as well!

I have a suggestion though: Why not scan four sides while you're at it?
It's only a matter of time before someone wants to use the back side of the box as well. At one point the front-ends will probably even support 3d models of game boxes!
(If I am not mistaken some fe's already support 3d models of arcade cabs.)

Anyway: great work! Those boxes look better than the real thing :)

bLAZER 25 April 2011 19:44

Actually, a box has 6 sides, so why only 4? :)

I'm satisfied with two though. And it's less work for volunteers to scan, thus the chance of anyone bothering to scan increases.

prowler 25 April 2011 20:23

Hi bLAZER,

You can download my Another World 300 dpi bitmap (yes, bitmap) scans here:
http://www.box.net/shared/cs9yd8ly91

Let's see what you can do with them! :spin

bLAZER 25 April 2011 23:02

Excellent! Thanks!

bLAZER 25 April 2011 23:56

This is how it came out, I'm pretty satisfied:

prowler 25 April 2011 23:59

Heheh, nice work, mate! :great

Fgh is quite right; those boxes do look better than the real thing! :D

AmigaDave 27 April 2011 06:37

I have close to 400 boxed games (maybe more than 400 now) and might be able to help with this project. Where can I find a list of which games you are looking for?

Edit: Always thought I would make time to play each of them at least once after I retired, but have not really started on that quest yet. I still play my old favorites once in a while though.

bLAZER 27 April 2011 20:52

@AmigaDave Hey man, it would be awesome if you can help out with some scans (as much as you can). AS I wrote earlier it's basically all WHDLoad games minus the ones I listed above. But if you REALLY want names, then of course I would prefer the top games like here http://www.lemonamiga.com/games/votes_list.php

Thanks a bunch!

@watertonian So, could you help out with some scans?

rkauer 30 April 2011 05:20

If some charity soul can provide me the Mortal Kombat box scan I'll be totally grateful. Amiga version, of course. The one I have is full of folds and some wear & tear.

I'm planning in do a wall poster. I think bLAZER will like it too, so I'll not feel so guilty for this hijack...:nervous

bLAZER 30 April 2011 11:13

@rkauer Yes, you're right, I would want that too.

So...things got very quiet here...

Supamax 30 April 2011 15:30

As a graphic artist, I can say that the best scanning resolution (I know, it's BIG) is 600 dpi for color/greyscale images.
They can so be correctly treated with descreening utilities (the best I know of is the one by Sattva), with optimal results. Then they may be downscaled @ 300dpi, "cleaned" and archived.

So, if you're starting a big scanning "tour-de-force" (for example you, AmigaDave :)), I WARMLY suggest you all to do it @ 600 dpi! Then you can save each image as JPEG with medium compression and upload it.

I will gladly offer my experience about treating those scans... :agree

Massimo
P.S. I'm doing a similar work with Sinclair ZX Spectrum inlay cards and cassettes, but I have a few original games. It would be so nice if somebody could help me by sending me scans of his games...
All Spectrum scans on the Internet are low-resolution, so I wanted to contribute in changing this situation if possible... :scream

bLAZER 30 April 2011 16:26

This is not needed for my project though, but of course scanning in higher resolutions, saving in lossless formats etc. is prefered for archiving. Go a head scan as you like, just as long as I get some scans at all.
