Site Update

Post by Collector » Thu Nov 12, 2009 4:31 am

Originally PostPosted: Sun Oct 22, 2006 2:43 am

In preparation for my entrys for the new collections with my DOSBox fixes, I have started to add a couple of extra features to the individual game pages. These are the new collections pages, which are not linked to on the site, yet until my updates are finalized.

New King's Quest Collection page
New Leisure Suit Larry Collection page
New Police Quest Collection page
New Space Quest Collection page

There were already some music files up, so I embeded them on the corresponding game's page:

Conquests of Camelot
Conquests of the Longbow
King's Quest IV SCI
King's Quest VI
King's Quest VII
King's Quest MoE
Quest for Glory II

There are a few more cover shots that I would like to get, but either my boxes for these games are not in good enough shape or I am missing for these remaining games. I would appreciate any scans that anyone might be able contribute. I would like them in TIFF format at 300 DPI, 32 bit RGB color.

Castle of Dr. Brain
Island of Dr. Brain
EcoQuest 1
EcoQuest 2
Gabriel Knight 1
Gabriel Knight 2
King's Quest I AGI
King's Quest II
King's Quest III
King's Quest IV AGI
Gobliiins
Gobliins 2
Goblin's Quest
Leisure Suit Larry 1 AGI
Leisure Suit Larry 2
Leisure Suit Larry 3
Leisure Suit Larry 6
Leisure Suit Larry 7

Pepper's Adventures in Time
Phantasmagoria 2
Police Quest 1 AGI
Police Quest 1 VGA
Police Quest 2
Police Quest 3
Quest for Glory III
Quest for Glory V
Shivers II

If anyone can help, please let me know. Thanks.

I can help with:

EQ1
LSL 7
Phantasmagoria 2
Quest for Glory 3

I can only get LSL7 at 300 dpi. The others I have already scanned and I do not have them with me to re-scan and they are at 150dpi. If you still want them, I will send them to you.

I THINK the Shivers I've got is Shivers 2. I'll check.

All the others I could have done are being done! Apart from the Gobliiins sets, but they are in such bad condition it wouldn't be worth scanning them. (They're second-hand, and let's say probably pre-hated rather than pre-loved.)

Hrm! Found out I have some SIERRA games I didn't realize I had (and must have picked up long ago! And can't find some of the others I know I had - finding disks and CDs but not box covers!) Clearly this means I have to hit ebay and replenish my supplies!

Regardless I got the following scans:

EcoQuest 1
EcoQuest 2
Gabriel Knight 1
Gabriel Knight 2
King's Quest I AGI
King's Quest II
King's Quest III
Leisure Suit Larry 1 AGI
Leisure Suit Larry 2
Leisure Suit Larry 3
Leisure Suit Larry 6
Leisure Suit Larry 7
Police Quest 1 VGA
Police Quest 2
Police Quest 3
Quest for Glory III
Quest for Glory V
Shivers II

I will begin uploading them in a moment. :)

D'oh! Of course, I was always bad at paying any attention at all...

I left them at their original scan size (pretty huge), but I saved them all as 200 dpi JPGs (because that's the standard I use for everything, and didn't even think of changing it...)

Hopefully you can make use of them, still. Some of my boxes, sadly, are a little banged up (especially my LSL1 EGA, my first ever Sierra game!)

You will find them all at:

http://www.tawmis.com/downloads

The filenames are obvious. :lol:

I also uploaded the KQ4... Because I have the box - but inside, I have disks for BOTH versions.

They're uploading now and should be done in like 2 minutes.

Thanks. If you get a chance, would it be possible to scan the backs, too? Take your time. Oh, the reason that I asked for TIFFs is that JPEGs are a lossy format. Every time that you save a JPEG it introduces more artifacting. Even when I want the final image to be JPEG, I'll work with it in TIFF until I am through with it. I save the original TIFFs so if I need to something more, I can again, work with the TIFFs. I have also started to use PNGs, instead of JPEGs. Again, Thanks.

No worries, I will get the back scans also. I have the two boxes with my Sierra games on my office floor right now (trying to find a way to make the games easier to get to than the back corner of the closet in the office, since I am in and out of them all the time, and I have no room for a shelf to home all the games anymore).

Here's the front and back of LSL7. Let me know if you'd still like the 150dpi of EQ1, PH2 and QfG3.

Thanks, Jules. Nice scans of LSAL7. Tawm already posted good scans of QfG3 and EQ1and might scan the backs, too. I'll take the PH2 till I can get a better one. Tawm's LSL1AGI and PQ2 boxes are a little beat up, so does anyone have either of these two in better shape?

Photo editing could fix that. :D

Yeah, I know, I already did that with some of the others. Thanks anyway, but unfortunately, those two would take more work than I have time for.

You're welcome. :)

PH2 Front
PH2 Back

Ehhh I just realized the back has a chunk out of it. I'll have to blame the previous owner for that one. :?
