Screenshot request!

OK people, here's your first opportunity to contribute to the HOL database...

We have a lot of nice screenshots in HOL, but it's pretty hard to grab screens from CD32 and CDTV games. We have some original games in our private collections, and some screens have been sent to us by EAB members (Thanx Amigaboy and Akira!).
I'm sure there are other board members with CD32/CDTV originals, and it would be really sweet if you could provide some screenshots from them. Some guidelines:

- All screenshots should be in GIF format. If you don't want to convert them, that's no big deal. We'll do the job.

- All screenshots should be 320 x 256 in size. If you can't be arsed to resize etc, it's no big deal.

- All screenshots should be centered, both vertical and horizontal centering please. See attached screen for an example.

- We want titlescreens, intro screens and gameplay screens.

If you got something for us, put the stuff in a ZIP-file and upload it to our FTP at abime.net, user "hol", password "incoming". If you include a text file with your name, we will be able to give you credits for your contribution

If you have any questions about this request, post them in this thread.

OK, here's a list of CD32 and CDTV titles that we need screens from:

I have most of the games on your list, but I have very little time to take screenies these days.

If you want Walker, you can get them from my FTP.

King Arthur himself has empowered me to award the greatest contributors to the Hall Of Light quest the ultimate accolade: a HOL Hero medal and the right to call themselves Sir.

Step forward Sir Amigaboy and Sir Akira.

Be silent, be still, that's it!

And look upon this moment. Savour it. Rejoice with great gladness, great gladness.

Remember it always, for you are joined by it, you are one under the stars!

Remember it well then, this night, this great victory. So that in the years ahead you can say, "I was there that night, with Cody Jarrett!"

For it is the doom of men that they forget...

But please don´t forget to post what you´ve done so far, so that we don´t make the same game twice

We need a Double Barrel Screenshot (DBS) first - that is, a 640x256 gif with the titlescreen on the left and an in-game screen on the right (with no dithering or anti-aliasing). The screen in the DBS should show the gameplay e.g. no loading screens.

Then you can make up to 9 alternative screenshot gifs (320x256), which can be any graphics from the game.

Thanks! I'll email King Arthur (king.arthur@avalon.com) and discuss the latest knighthoods and medals.
