Another question about the boxes. I have some of the ones you're missing, but before I scan them, I want to make sure you have use for them.

Some are German boxes with German text on the back. Some are not in the best condition (those I picked up at flea markets...). Some have price tags on them which I can't remove without ripping a big chunk of the actual cover off. Are you still interested in any of those or do you just want 'perfect' ones?

Hillsea Lido ECS - Small Box, Instructions good condition
Mean Arenas CD32 - Jewel Case, Mini-Manual great condition
Rise of the Robots ECS - Box, Manual MINT
Ruff n Tumble - Box, Manual great condition
Soccer Kid - Box, Manual good condition
Superfrog CD32 - Jewel case, Mini-Manual MINT possibly Amiga CD and CD32

German text is no problem. Even in poor condition, it's better than not at all (IMHO). As for removing stickers, have you tried lighter fluid? Careful, of course, to not stain the box, but in most cases this doesn't happen. I have a 99.9% success ratio in removing stickers using lighter fluid as it breaks down the gum from the sticker. You may need to rub some into the gummed area on the box after removing the sticker, so it won't be sticky. If they can't be removed at all, then I would just scan them as is. Oh, and thanks for the interest and the effort!

Soccer Kid - box, disk 1 (we have CD32 scans already)
Superfrog CD32 - jewel case, CD
Syndicate CD32 - box, CD Sleeve, CD
UFO Enemy Unknown CD32 - box, CD

Of course we need front and backs for the boxes. These would be great. If the manuals (or other books) have unique covers then they would also be of use, as well. Thanks for any efforts!

I'll start ASAP. I've got college 9am-4pm Mon-Wed and might have to do coursework in the evenings. However Wednesday is my last day so I'll probably start Wednesday night and try and get them done over the Thursday and Friday. What do I do to submit stuff.

I have the following boxes you're missing (of the existing entries - I also have some you don't have in the database yet ):

Behind the Iron Gate
Dreamweb (AGA)
Sink or Swim (you have only the front of the box for some reason)
Bandit Kings of Ancient China
Sarakon
Erben des Throns
Traders
Silent Service
Monty Python's Flying Circus
Blood Net (AGA)
Simon the Sorcerer (it is the AGA version, but it doesn't say on the front or back of the box, only on the side)
Wild Cup Soccer (CD32)
Ishar: Legend Of The Fortress (ECS)
Winter Olympics
Eishockey Manager
Beach Volley
Chaos Engine (ECS)
Discovery: In The Steps Of Columbus

Most of them also contain original disks and manuals. Will scan it all as soon as possible (should be done in the next few days). Where should I send or upload it to ?

I had an extra copy of the game and scanned the front when I sold it on ebay. This was way before HOL. I used my coverscan but haven't gotten around to scanning the back of the box and the disk yet.

I think you guys might have already given uploading instructions (abime.net U=hol P=incoming) but that don't mean nothing to me, so can you please be more specific. I'm gonna do some scanning now so hopefully by the time I'm finished I'll have an answer .
