New WHDLoad Covers & Screen Shot Sets (Updates!)

I've just spent the last few months creating a set of cover images and screen shots for various WHDLoad frontends. The screen shots sets that I have posted previously have been refreshed and about 50% replaced with better images. All archives are up to date with Retroplays current WHD game sets.
I've made several LHA archives for IGame, TinyLauncher and AGS using the correct folder structure and naming. I've also tried to cover RTG, AGA and ECS/OCS screen modes. There's also a couple Zip archives with PNG images for non Amiga frontends. You can get the files here.

***UPDATE 31/5/21 ***

I've updated the base image sets with the latest WHDload releases. All the cover images have been replaced with higher resolution captures and all the substandard ones have been replaced. There are also new demo cover images and many new screen captures.

Finally I've included a new archive called baseimages which has the unaltered images that I used to make my image set with. These are at full resolution and have the correct aspect ratios based on the original box.

Here's the link

All archives are also available on my EAB FTP folder under ~Uploads/mrv2k

Update #1

Here's the first update for my WHDload game image collection. As usual all the images are named in line with WHDLoad/Retroplay's latest updates.

I'll be releasing updates monthly and new full base sets every couple of months. I'm also going to work on getting some CLRMamePro dat files created for each set, so you can keep the images up to date.

There are four update archives that are split between AGS, IGame, TinyLauncher and PNG. I've put all the different image sets for each type into one archive as they are only a couple of meg each. Here's whats new...

Update #2

Here's May's update for my WHDLoad image collection. Loads of new games this month with quite a lot released in the last few days. I've trawled around the interweb to find the more obsure box images and I have had to "adapt" a few, but I think the results are pretty good.

As usual the images are in sync with Retroplay's latest updates and named accordingly. The readme tells you if anything needs deleting. Other than that, just copy the update folders over your collection.

The next update in June will be a full update as I am working on getting the Demo images updated. I've made all new cover images but I want to add the release date on to the them which means adding 800+ dates to my database, which is taking a long time. I'm also updating the screen shots at the same time.

I'll update my EAB FTP account in a couple of days.

Update #4

Here's the latest update to my WHDLoad screenshots. As usual there are IGame, AGS, TinyLauncher and PNG format images. This month there weren't that many releases but most of them were unreleased or fairly obscure. I created the Supercars AGA, Center Court 2, Scuba Diver AGA and Mutant League Hockey covers myself from various web sources. The next release will be a full release as I'm improving the source image resolution. This means running 4595 games and demos, which is kind of time consuming.

Really appreciate your work. It's nice to have images for games but getting them all together is a lot of work, thanks so much for this.

You're close to 50 posts, and this is a very worthwhile project that you've undertaken

As I'm an FTP Admin, I've now created an account for you and PM'd you the password

You can now upload to your ~Uploads/mrv2k directory.

Hi mrv2k, thanks so much for these images! The png covers I have used for my thumbnails in my retroarch playlist for Amiga. They are now all showing. I appreciate the time that must have gone into this.

Looking good! Thanks for making this available to us

Will probably use them as a screensaver on my Amiga since I do not use a WHDLoad frontend.

There's been a few additions and changes since this pack was released. I know this won't be easy but do you have any plans to provide updates?

Monthly updates sound like a good idea with all the changes there's been lately. One other suggestion would be to have a clrmame dat to keep track of everything.
