SNES MSU-1 Cover Art


Recommended Posts

A new PCM pack for Illusion of Gaia has been put together and uploaded:


Also it appears that the pre packaged MSU packs have been pulled from the archive.org so people will have to download the PCM packs and patch their own roms.

Here is a video guide on how to do it from Smokemonster:

All credit for the artwork used in these covers belongs to the original creators. None of these covers are my original art, all of it was made using art found on Google Images and I claim no ownership over any of it whatsoever. All I did was simple copy / pastes and in some cases used filters.

I noticed there were still quite a few gaps in the covers for the MSU games, especially the less popular games. So I decided to utilize my less than stellar artistic and Photohop / Gimp skills and do something about it. I really like the style of covers @NahuelDS did so I used his template and copied his look and feel by not using the original box art though there were some cases where there was no good optional art to "steal" off of Google Images so I had to use the original art as a base. Combine these with the covers @NahuelDS has already uploaded in this thread for a consistent look. There are some covers for games that have an MSU patch and PCM pack in the works such as Demons Crest and Out of this World.

Also I do not claim to be an artist or have any artisic skills whatsoever so if you don't like them and think they suck that's fine. The templates are available so feel free to make your own if you don't like em.

I did my best to find good fan or official art to use but certain games that proved extremely difficult so I had to resort to using the real box art and modifying it slightly. There are definitely some here that I am not a huge fan of but my art and Photoshop skills are extremely limited. Like I told Zom, I know just enough to poke around and play with settings, sometimes the results were good and other times a total disaster, lol.

Glad you like them.

You need the patched rom correctly named, the .msu file, the rom name .xml file, the .pcm files and if using the stand alone Higan or BSnes cores the maifest.bml file.

I suggest using either the Snes9x core, Higan core or stand alone Snes9x for this stuff since you can just straight load the patched rom file.
