Once I ran this I then went through all "Boxart" images via WinUAE to check them. Anything that didn't look great I then adjusted in Photoshop i.e. AutoTone, AutoContrast, AutoColor, or playing with Levels.

Download this archive and just extract into "C:\WinUAE"

I've very happy with the results

...there's still loads and loads of missing content; so that's the net major task

It works fine on Damien's post. It doesn't on your quoted message. Check the original post - works fine.

Alrighty. Now that today I was a little more awake, I've gone through all the "Boxart" again and optimised further

This time I mainly tried to get rid of creases / wrinkles etc...

Some are impossible though without destroying further, like these 2 poor scans:


So, please just download / extract this updated archive into "C:\WinUAE".

It was already the best collection before adding in "Boxart"

This is just extra fluff / eye candy

Minor issue-question: as mentioned here I'm putting No Scanlines & No LEDs.uae into C:\WinUAE\Configurations\Host\ but it won't appear in Host. Any tips?

No suggestions really, just make sure that you follow those instructions to the letter

The "No Scanlines & No LEDs.uae" is also linked to so you just extract into "C:\WinUAE\Configurations\Host".

Thanks. I think I've located the problem. Disabling Paths/Cache configuration files solved the issue. It can be re-enabled afterwards.

Oh, I never have that ticked... but guess you need to if your computer is very ancient.

Sorry, just one more question. Can the "No Scanlines & No LEDs.uae" override also work with floppy speed? I simply added the line floppy_speed=400 in that .uae file but it doesn't seem to have an effect since WinUAE UI (F12) shows floppy speed still at 100. LEDs and scanlines are turned off as expected.

I know I can replace the floppy value in all configuration files, but an override seems better so as to leave your config files untouched.

Yup, that should work... strange that it hasn't for you though.

Can't test ATM as I'm currently re-WinRAR'ing my collection with the latest "Boxart" additions. This takes 2 hour and 10 minutes

Edit: oh, I think you won't see things take affect until you actually start a configuration file... and it injects those settings on top.

I found that the quality on most images was better than other sites.
