How to add your own box art (PAL Megadrive)?

Recommended Posts

Since Launchbox seems unable to do a simple task of scraping just PAL Megadrive box art with out also donwload USA Genesis (when i specifically tell it not to download any US boxart what so ever) i would like to know what the easiest way to add my own complete PAL Megadrive box art that i already have?.

To say im a bit disappointed with this PAID product and its inability to do a simple task like this where FREE scapper programs are able to do this task is beyond me!?

You can simply drop the art in the appropriate folder:

\LaunchBox\Images\Sega Genesis\Box - Front\Europe

It doesn't have to be an exact name but it should be close, of course the further off of the name you are the more likely you are to run into an issue.

Maybe because they haven't been uploaded, the database is purely volunteer driven.

You can contribute yeah. Or you can just upload the pack itself to the downloads section here: https://forums.launchbox-app.com/files/category/18-game-box-art/

@Robin55 has been uploading a lot of great media packs, I used his Saturn and Sega CD packs because they are much better than what is on the database.

Thanks @Lordmonkus ! I must get around to uploading those Saturn Boxes, The Sega CD ones are done.

Actually @BlockABoots I'm going to take this project on now. There is a set on the Hyperspin forums that I made as my very first dabble into media art but I am not happy with them and they are not technically my work as all I did was change the angle of someone else's work. Please do not upload to the database as I will do this once the project is finished.

Here is the Hyperspin ones anyway:

No, just Eu covers man, I don't think anyone has ever really done that from my experience, unless they made their own style covers from scratch.

Yeah i guess the older black with white grid would be difficult but  the newer Blue style boxart would be easier as you just need the main art work from the US release as the box designs are very similar. Guess it depends how many US titles there are that didnt get a PAL release

It's not that it would be difficult, It just wouldn't be proper is all.  Most content creators go for accuracy as much as possible unless we are doing our own thing from scratch. There are around 540 EU games to my knowledge and over 700 US games.
