N64 Box Scans Wanted Offering Cash Donations to help finish this Project

Recommended Posts

Updated 3rd Dec 2017 

I am looking for RAW Scans for the following N64 game boxes and I am happy to Donate Money to help get this finished.

The scans I need don't exist on the the Internet unfortunately. This is 100% not for Profit. Anyone Selling Reproduction boxes should be reported.

Scans must be 600dpi or Higher and of good quality please. Here is a link to an excellent scanning guide:

http://www.thecoverproject.net/forums/index.php?topic=1305.0

  • Scans must be of all parts of the box please.
  • The Scan must be of the game pictured and the same region please.
  • You must be happy for the scan to be shared freely online. For example for use on Thecoverproject.net, gamefaqs, nintandbox, nesworld, retrocollect, emuparadise etc etc.
  • Payment will be by Paypal after everything is ok.

When my paypal balance is empty I will kindly ask for this post to be deleted. 
Let me know what you can supply and how much for your time and hopefully we can sort a deal. Or if you are OK for money and just happy to donate for free for the community that's excellent. 

Any questions just ask.

Have a nice day.

Good luck to you.  I don't own any of those games, unfortunately (well, unfortunate for you, anyway.  Looking at the titles, I'm pretty content with not owning any of them.:))

On a related note...Man...I wonder if we offered $5 per mag if we'd get more people scanning stuff around here.  Just think - $5 per debound/scanned/edited mag...depending on the number of pages, that's like making nearly $1 per hour!  Cha-ching!  So if anyone wants to pay me $5 per mag...er, nope...I'm still not gonna want to do it very often.:)

Thanks. Yep some of those are not anything to shout about. Luckily the previous 300 odd n64 titles were obtained without any cash needed. Its been about 4 years getting to this stage I just want it finished.  As for Mags with these new fan-dangled copier machines having a wanted list pinned to the front page and have people offer donations may be an option. Or maybe make the scans available for someone else to clean up and submit? I guess all this would have been thought or or suggested before.

Well, first of all, we do this non-profit, so donations are out, regardless.

As for scanning and leaving the raws for someone else to edit...it doesn't really work.  We had a member who went that route for a while and scanned a bunch of mags, uploading them to archive.org for others to edit.  Two years later, most of them are still there, untouched.  The sad truth is that scanning (but especially editing) mags is a dull and time-consuming process that almost no one is willing to commit to.

Lucky for you, scanning a box is a much speedier process, and as a bonus, can be done without destroying the thing being scanned.  Your only setback is having to find someone who kept the boxes to lackluster obscure games.

You are absolutely spot on.

That's ok no need to apologise. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. 

Usually I get replies accusing me of trying to make money out of this but it's far from the truth. 

It's just the nature of the internet as soon as you upload something seconds later there will be someone trying to make money off your efforts.

Luckily I've never seen anyone trying to make money off of my scans.  The only problem I've run across is having someone bastardize my work.  I had to stop scanning issues of Famitsu entirely because one of our members would immediately reupload them to a different site after severely reducing the image size and compression quality in order to make the filesize tiny.  I don't care if someone wants to make a low-quality version of our files for their own personal use (although really, hard drive space is pretty cheap these days) - I'd just rather they don't turn around and redistribute those low-quality versions to the Internet at large.:)

      Hi everybody, when the SNES Classic was released, I decided to compile all of the content that was covered in Nintendo Power for each game (including the comics). Before I knew it, I was spending quite a few hours looking through every issue, referencing various indexes, cropping pages to fit better with one another, etc. I've already spent way more time on this project than I wanted. If anybody wants to do whatever would be needed to make these suitable for distribution on Retromags itself, feel free to edit and redistribute:

      Also, I'd appreciate a quick thanks if anybody likes my efforts since part of me wonders if I wasted my time. For example, I also included a 100 page document focused on Super Mario 64 in anticipation of Super Mario Odyssey. I think it's really neat to be able to see all of the beta images of a game, the maps, strategies, codes, arena scores, ads, etc. all in one place without having to seek multiple magazines to see it all. Some of these compilations even act as the closest thing to an official Nintendo Player's Guide for the games that never had one (such as Super Punch-Out!!). Another highlight of course are the comics, some of which I couldn't find a full CBZ version anywhere else. Enjoy!
