It's so nice to see people coming together from various countries / languages for a common goal. This is what EAB is about IMHO

=> Oh yes, I love it!

...the internet (positively) changed so much in life...

Perhaps the covers can be included in HOL with the author's name of course
and then you could see all information, pics, and print covers for the games you wanted.....

(It's just an idea)

Hmmm, I guess I should post an example...

This is an old "Back" CD cover that I did from scratch for Age of Mythology a few years ago when I couldn't find anything on the web



Edit: ooops, coverted the image to a .jpg so that it's quicker to load...

Thanks Zetro

A lot of work went into it... I grabbed loads of images from the official site then:

... Cut out all small symbols then pasted around the boarders.
... Cut out all 4 corner images then pasted in corners.
... Used "sand" background for top half. Cut out all characters by hand that are featured there + official text. ... For the middle section I used a banner from the official website, then used a divider (repeated) for the top / bottom boarders.
... For the bottom section I used a "stone" background, cut out characters by hand, added text, then added a shadow to text.
... Finally added in resized "logos".

I won't go into the side panels, or the Front (2 sides) or the label. This was just the Back

Designing is so much fun

Amiga CD32 Cover Project
Amiga CD project
CDTV Project...

there is a lot of interest in an unoffcial coverwork for PC / Console (retro/modern) / Amiga

soo its kind open ended really... it all depends what people want and obviously want to do.
If you could provide webspace with more space, even with a CMS/forum system that would be very cool indeed and helpfull for the projects future Currently my project basically accepts all kinds of Amiga covers so custom dvd covers are fine too

DamienD: Cool cover, there is alot of stuff we could make still
HOL: Sounds nice as long as there are credits in place.

Thx alot, Zetr0!
I know with the talent we have and willing to use for this project, I will have problems with the little 25MB space eventually.

Fantastic cover, DamienD.

I´d like to see our covers in HOL and would appreciate to have high quality scans of the ORIGINAL covers that are already in there.

So, everybody could print out HQ covers (custom and original)

Hey sarek2k,

Hey Boss,

I didn´t see you asked for "The Final Gate".
Do you still want it?

Will give you a download link tomorrow when I´m back home!

You guys could pick up the real cover for Super Street Fighter II Turbo for CD32 on eBay if you like, get some scans of it, then send it to me.

@sarek2k
Thats some skills there my friend!!!! IMPRESSIVE!!!

@Rebel-CD32
thanks for the link. When I did the SSF2T covers, I was orignally going to be faithfull to the scans on HOL... but the more I looked at them and the more i searched the fan art etc there were far better examples and intruth more meaningfull to the game (i felt anyway)

I should really do a faithfull representation and consider the others as alternates. but imma working on a couple of things for TheBoss (namely a working CMS webspace for his project ) so given a bit of time i will endevor to make a more faithfull representation...

unless some one beats me to it

Excellent work as always sarek2k

You would have had to have drawn / created all images by yourself hey?

Very impressive
