WTF @ Mercs and Final Fight

What's the point of ripping the Amiga versions of arcade games since the latter has more animation stages and colours?

Because we are ripping Amiga games and these are Amiga games (who cares if they are conversions!!)

Just because a game is a conversion or it has appeared on other formats doesn`t mean that it`s any less important than a game which was only created for the amiga The asrp was set up as a database and resource of amiga graphics,all games should be worthy of inclusion

You guys are missing the point completely..

If I wanted perfect sprites I'd rip the arcade versions, but they are not AMIGA sprites etc.. they are arcade!!

Should we not rip gfx from games which are on the megadrive or snes because they look better??

No didn't think-so!

Yeah, BippyM is right (as always?). If they want to rip the sprites, let them do that. What if CAPS didn't preserve some games just because the arcade versions were better? Or if HOL took screenshot's from the arcade versions of games just because they look better? That would ruin the meaning of CAPS and HOL.

If you say what's the point ripping amiga sprites, then why not take that view with most of the screenshots in HOL? Why not use arcade screenshots for MERCS instead of the amiga ones?

The answer is because it's an amiga database, and the whole EAB thing is about amigas. The sprites are for preservation purposes as much as anything so preserving as much of the games as possible is what is being done. For the AMIGA

All amiga games should be included (even if the megedrive/snes/arcade had more colours or more levels)This is the amiga sprites project Not the snes or neo geo or arcade project,we are interested in the graphics of our beloved machine.
The amiga was not perfect but it kept me occupied for years because it had a lot of quality games with amazing graphics(lionheart still puts most new 2d games to shame).

I find it better to aim, at least AT FIRST, towards the ORIGINAL, *exclusive* Amiga games instead of lame conversions.

After all those have been done, focus on lame conversions.

I you want to rip original Amiga games Akira, do that. If he wants to rip Arcade conversions, let him do that. All games should be ripped and it doesn't matter in wich order it's ripped.

Why not just add the infamous *screenshot might not reflect the actual graphics on your system
