I'm on it! That's a pretty important game to add to the collection. I'll try to put together a list of things I can do with the boxes I have tonight as well. No point in people doing stuff twice!:D

Would anyone be interested in doing this for F-Zero: Maximum Velocity, Megaman Battle Network 3: Blue , and Sword of Mana? I can get the covers scanned at 300 dpi if need be.

I know I don't have any of those games. I may be able to do it but I want to do the ones I have first. Anyone else?...

Sword of Mana is available on page 11 of this post. I have some requests:

Baseball Advance
Driver 2
Earthworm Jim
Final Fight
Invicible Iron Man
Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX
Mega Man Zero 2
Metal Slug Advance
NHL 2002
Pac-Man (Classic Nes Series)
Spider-Man Mysterio's Menace
Spider-Man: The Movie
Spider-Man: The Movie 2
Star X
Super Dodge Ball Advance
Super Mario Bros. (Classic NES Series)
Super Mario Advance
Super Mario Advance 2
Super Street Fighter II Turbo
Tomb Raider: The Prophecy
X-Men: Reign of Apocalypse

I have the boxes but I just moved out of my house so it could be quite awhile before I get to them. Seriously though THANKS guys for these. Once I saw this thread I wanted to make covers as well since I already do something similar for my PS2 Demo Discs. Thanks to Organicow and Snowcone especially since half of my collection is already finished now.

The hi res image - when I open it into photoshop to print says: "JPEG marker segment length is too short. (The file may be truncated or incomplete)

Those are the only 2 images I have a problem with, and they won't open in any other program for me.

Well I found out that my scanner is acting up and overlays the whole image with little red dots. I can try on my other scanner but it won't be as good of quality (this is for Megaman Battle Network 3 and F-Zero: Maximum Velocity.

I decided to make a sharper side GBA logo. You can resize it as necessary to use and I don't need any credit if you use it.

I am reuploading them. There was a hiccup in the file transfer and they did in fact get corrupted.

Just to give you a head's up, the GameBoy Advance logo on the spine of the following games is too high up and got cut off:

Advance Wars2
Astro Boy Omega Factor
Castlevania-aos
Castlevania-cotm
Castlevania-hod
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
Fire Emblem
Lunar Legend
Shining Soul 2
Tactics Ogre

The following covers that I downloaded and looked at are fine, and don't need to be fixed:

Advance Guardian Heroes
Advance Wars
Breath Of Fire 2
Castlevania
Double Dragon Advance
Golden Sun
Golden Sun 2
Ice Climber
Kingdom Hearts
Kingdom Hearts - alt1
Kingdom Hearts - alt2
Kingdom Hearts - alt3
Kingdom Hearts - alt4
Legend Of Zelda
Lufia
Mario & Luigi - Superstar Saga
Metroid
Metroid Fusion
Metroid Zero Mission
Ninja Five-O
River City Ransom EX
Shining Soul
Sword Of Mana
Warioland 4
Yoshi's Island
Zelda 2 - The Adventure Of Link
Digitally yours,

Alright. We need to decide on a spine logo so I can make sure all of the covers have the same logo from here on out.

Alright I've got my FF1&2 done and a new Zelda LTTP with thumbs. Where do you want them?

These were done with the GBA logo Snowcone provided earlier. In all actuality the new logo does look better. We do need to decide on a consistent set of guidelines (imagesizeand logos). I guess I vote for the new one even though I would have to redo these two. Not a huge deal since I have the PSD but I want to work on New ones!:P:D

Also I put together a list of the games I have and can do. What does anyone want next?

Castlevania AOS -Already Done
Castlevania COTM -Already Done
Contra Advanced
FF Tactics Adv - Already Done
FF1&2 - Already Done
Final Fight One - Front messed up but may be usable
GT Advanced
Mario Kart - Already Done
Metroid Fusion - Already Done
Sonic Advanced - Already Done
Spyro Season of Flame
Spyro Season of Ice
Super Mario Advanced 1
Super Mario Advanced 2
Super Mario Advanced 3 - Already Done
Super Mario Advanced 4 - Already Done
Super Mario Classic
Tetris Worlds
Tom & Jerry The Magic Ring
Tony Hawk 2
Wario Ware - Already Done
Zelda LTTP - Already Done

Snowcone...I think the one you are using works really well. When I printed out each of your covers they all lined up nicely on the shelf. I also like how the top portion has some white so it looks uniform. As for the clarity...maybe it could be a little sharper but the ones I printed already look good enough to display so I wouldn't say it is a necessity.

I don't have an FTP setup yet so let me see if I can setup a temp folder for you to upload these files to.
