Hi, I know that it is usually games that people add, but I have also just added Retro Gamer Magazine to launchbox and was wondering if people would like the front cover image's for the copies I have done. If so how would I add a new platform i.e Magazines and then a sub catagory for retro gamer.

 

Thanks Thomsi

I could be wrong about this but I would say ask @jasoncarr about adding a section to the downloads area for magazines and then you would submit the file to be added there. What file format are the magazines in as launchbox/big box uses a built in .pdf viewer?

Hi, they are in a pdf format. The comics I am adding will be in .cbz or .cbr format. I will contact @Jason Carrabout this. Many thanks for your advice.

This link will take you to an application that will let you export the front cover from your own files. It supports .pdf, .cbr and .cbz. It has been very useful in creating my complete Marvel comics library I'm adding to LaunchBox.

Thanks for that will give it a try. Have been using comicrack to do the same thing.
