Hey I printed a Street Fight Cover, put the pic came out small. How do I resize?


What program did you use to open it? Also, where did you find the cover?

Post a link to where the file was and I can probably figure it out for you.

Try opening it up in MS Paint. Then just go to page setup and switch to legal sized paper and landscape layout. Should print to the right size, sometimes there are resolution issues but that one seems fine.

Super Bump/Rise from Grave!

I'm kind of tempted to do this for my loose/cart only GBA/DS games over the summer. Is there any place that sells GBA/DS cases besides Nintendo's shop. I might have to switch out my used complete games with eco cases if I can't find the ones with the GBA cartridge holder.

From this thread I started....http://www.cheapassg...131#post8382131

They're not Nintendo branded cases, but someone on TheCoverProject.net recently dug up this nice link...
http://hyperkin.com/...aster-case.html
50 cases for $25.



But I'm planning on just buying from the big N and swap out my regular DS's.....

There isn't that many GBA's I want to get boxed, I already have 60, just need 60 more and I have plenty of opened DS cases already.

at NA?

I think it was 2 each, 5 for 6, and 10 for 10.... or something.

so if you get 10 packs, $1 each, but shipping takes a nice bite.

I think I bought around $40-$50 and shipping was 11 or 13

At anywhere as long as its not eco and is almost like the ones Nintendo DS uses, but doesnt have to be from Nintendo.

Im new to this and want to start using these cases with the cover project to put my Gameboy advance games in it.

very nice, and I agree that it is a pain to fit the manual. But not as painful as trying to fit a GB/GBC cart in there... alot more hacking.


any ideas on fitting the manuals in the ds cases?

Thanks.

GBA manuals? I use an X-Acto knife to cut out the small plastic strip towards the top of the case (right above the top of the DS manual). With that removed, GBA manuals fit perfectly.

I've had super luck with a toe nail clipper. It's small, and sharp and not much effort, you can snip the top thin piece and it works.

about 10 seconds and you can slip a DS manual.

if you can get a straight edge instead of the normal round, it might look less rounded.

I'd take a picture but it's nothing compared to the hacking it takes to get a damn GBC or GB in the damn thing.

when u get a chance, can u post a pic with the booklet without/inside?

do u know if printing the cover takes special paper? So do i just download the over art, go to print, and print it or do i need to input the size before printing?

Want to print some GBA art covers for the ds case.

Cell phone camera is the best I can do, but here you go:

Here's a picture highlighting the area that you need to cut out (I've already done it here)
Spoiler


Here's a shot of the manual inside the case

As for the paper, photo paper is the best. Standard letter 8 1/2 x 11 will come out just a *bit* too short for DS cases. I recommend legal 8 1/2 x 14 if the gap bothers you.

thanks. pics look great. The gap shouldnt be a big deal. I mean when i download the over art from the coverartproject, do i need to alter anything (size,etc.) before print preview? Would it look good if it prints on regular 8 1/2 by 11 paper?

If you have an option in your printer settings for "Borderless Printing", I'd check that. Otherwise, you should be good to go.

Could anyone provide a scan of MADDEN 08 cover art for DS? Or, if they were feeling generous, the actual liner and/or manual? Trying to help a friend complete a Christmas gift.

By any chance does anyone have the cover for magic touch detective 2 1/2 they could scan? Google search provides me with everything minus the spine art work :(

Just noticed your post.  Do you still need it?  I have a copy of the game at home.
