bump to get some more people on this... we've only got a team of 5 so far. Was hoping for 10.

I have no artistic/visual editing skills, so I can be little help there. However, at some point there may be impetus to make covers for games someone more directly involved might not own in high-quality form, and in that case, I will attempt to provide.

well i am currently a house husband, so free time is usually in abundance.

i would have no problem doing more than one a week.

I second the idea of doing more than one at a time. I'd have no problem pumping out at least three or four in a weekend. I could do more than that, but i suppose if the five of us were doing several covers a week it would require a hell of a lot more scanning on your part, so of course it would depend on how much free time you have. Just a thought.

That was done at 300 DPI.

I tried scanning these, but they didn't come out very well. I don't do much scanning, I'm not quite sure what I'm doing wrong.

The reason your scans didn't come out very well is probably due to a cheap scanner. Now, for at least the third time, from Mookyjooky's original post:

I also have game company art books, a high priced scanner, a collection of Sega Saturn Magazines from Europe and over 500 Sega Saturn Covers in a box I bought off eBay to scan.

It's nice that you'd like to help out, but please leave the scanning to someone with more material and better hardware. I apologize if saying this makes me come off as a jackass, but if we start using scans of a wide range of quality, the overall quality of the project is going to suffer. Consistency is key in such a large project. This is the same reason we're using templates: everything will match.

If you'd like to help, please just volunteer for what's being asked. All you need to do for this project is combine provided materials (put the image on the Photoshop template). If you are unable to perform this [fairly simple] task, and you still really want to help somehow, you'll have to ask Mookyjooky if there is anything else you can do.

A couple of us have said that we wouldn't mind doing more than one cover at a time, but Mookyjooky is heading up this project, and he's asked for a team of ten people (including him) to perform this task. If he wants ten people, we need five more.

I want to see this happen! Let's get a team together and get this thing off the ground!

Oh well, I thought I'd help by scanning the covers that I had. The scanner that I used was a few years old. I just wanted to help and I'd forgotten about that part of the original post with the high priced scanner.

I don't know if I'd be much help with the actual making of covers. I attempted do one for psone project awhile back. I don't think it's very good though. Here it is if you want an idea of what I can do (my first attempt at a cover). I have to admit I was stuck with what ever images I could get for that one. I also wasn't quite finished with it either. The back really needed work.

If I can't help, I just want to say I hope you guys continue with this project.

erehwon, that's really not a bad start on a cover. Personally i think you'd do fine on this project. If you were able to piece that one together yourself, you should have no problem with Mookyjooky's template and extra images to choose from. I think you should give it a shot!

CompUSA has a 50 pack of thin DVD cases for $17 if you have one nearby. Shipping pretty much kills the deal on their site.

I'm sure you could find some for cheaper if you shop around.

Here's a site with a ton of case options and colors. The prices on the black slim cases don't seem that bad, but they don't have prices on shipping listed.

The colored slim cases are discontinued there.
I decided against buying some things I bidded on a lowball auction. Didn't know it'd be a big problem. Sue me.

I found black ones at WalMart in a 10pk for $5. Also Best Buy has a 25pk of clear ones for $15, which isn't too bad. About the same as the one Mookyjooky linked to on Amazon in the original post (although that's a better deal if you order enough to get free shipping; BTW, note that the cheaper ones in the marketplace seem to have very high shipping rates).

Just go mad, make duplicates whatever. Make a million covers. :D

I'm working on a CD cover template right now. Then we can make those too.

Decided to have people email the "12 (Highest Quality) .jpg" to me, instead of posting the .psd on a file hosting site, since the .psds can get up to 50-60MBs in size quickly.

Changed the instructions above.
