  1. Amstrad CPC 464 Real 3D Box Art Project

    Amstrad CPC Real 3D Box Art Project.
    There are a few sources of 3D box art out there for the CPC464, though none that are as high resolution, realistic looking and true to the original as I wanted. In the absence of support for true 3D rotatable models, I decided to make this set.
    This set uses a real cassette template in Photoshop into which the front covers and spines are inserted. English versions used where available, though foreign games are covered too.
    Most 3D boxes are a "single" cassette box, though there are also double cassette boxes, disk boxes and cardboard boxes. I try and make the box art true to the original. Cassette boxes are prioritised where available. There are a very small number of games that came in boxes of anomalous sizes - I have tended to use the cardboard box template for these.
    The single cassette box template is of superior quality to the double and disk box templates - if anyone can find the latter 2 in higher quality, let me know, though I'm relatively happy with the ones I have.
    For freeware/PD/etc games, I am making "blank" cassette templates with the game name stuck to the front and spine of the cassette insert as an embossed label strip (like you could make with those old machines).
    The rom set used is the Gamebase CPC set, which contains 3299 games.
    New packs will be added here, so click follow to get updates. Any errors or missing games let me know!

    28 Aug 2021: Packs # (75 covers) and A (242 covers) have been updated to fix the translucent background issue for double cassette and disk cases, and PD/freeware 3D boxes have been added
    10 Sep 2021: Packs added (B - 219 covers)
    6 Nov 2021: Packs added (C - 249 covers)
    15 September 2022: Apologies for the lack of updates since...well, the last update. This work is still on my radar. It is currently on pause as the "true 3D model box" feature has made it into the Launchbox implementation list as per the most recent poll. If this works well then I would plan to convert all these boxes to proper 3D model ones. So I'm just waiting to see what it looks like. 
    30 November 2022: So the 3D model box feature is now working in Launchbox, with a full-screen view having been implemented. Once a good jewel cassette box type has been added to the list of templates in Launchbox, I will go ahead and convert these images to a format that can be used with the 3D models, and continue to complete the set to work with the 3D models. There will then be little need to have these static 3D boxes in addition to the 3D model boxes and I likely won't complete the static set - but if anyone is interested in continuing this work with the static images, I'd be happy to share the resources. 
    26 February 2024: Over a year later and still no support for cassette-based platforms with the 3D box model feature, which is disappointing. Hopefully this will come soon.

  4. Amstrad CPC 'logos'

    Having realised that media was thin on the ground for the Amstrad CPC, (I hate seeing all that white text in BB when logos are missing) I decided to take action. So I went on a mission to replace all that awfull text with something better. These ain't 'proper' logos. They're just ones I made on a free online font editor. Anyway, till the database gets updated these will do
