    I did a quick re-work of the CPS1 and CPS2 flyer sets that have been floating around...not sure who originally put them together. (Please inform me if you know so I can give credits). I fixed all the spines, and adjusted the levels on them, in some cases re-working some things. I will probably fix up a few more of these (going back to wiiware for a bit) and when i do i'll add them to the OP. In the meantime, if you don't have 'em, grab 'em here!

    *Thanks to mastershoes for providing me with some of the covers. I just did some minor tweaks so they match the rest of the set.
    Thanks to Dump for testing some of the games on the fly for me as well.
    Update 7 will come soon.
    Enjoy!

    Finished going through the rest of the neo-geo covers, these are for the larger roms that are for the most part (maybe all part?) unplayable. Main set and alts. They haven't been renamed yet, when i get them re-named i'll add them to the main thread. It has all the Metal Slug and KOF covers you're looking for.

    MasterShoes, sorry for my english, but i need following questions..

    as you may know the exact size of the covers in Wiiflow??

    Myself design my own covers for emulators (NES, SNES, N64) but I have problems in the NES, because they are very small, and really should be larger than the SNES and N64.??

    Muchas Gracias!!!

    for .png files, any size within the dimensions of 1090x680 will work (Anything larger, even by 1 pixel will not display). I believe .jpg's can be larger, but i'm not sure on the max dimensions.

    Thought I'd join in on the PS1 covers. Here's a few I made and a few I found on The Cover Project and re-sized for wiiflow

    http://www.mediafire.com/?sml5vd8d617fxmz

    Activision Classics
    Bust-A-Move 4
    Frogger 2 Swampy's Revenge
    Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase

    from TCP:
    spyro the dragon
    spyro ripto's rage
    spyro year of the dragon
    frogger

    They are 1090x458. Which means use the Gameboy coverflows for best results. The only thing is I guess the spine isn't the right size because the back covers bleed over into the spine. No big deal though. Hope you like 'em.

    So glad to see this thread active with updates and contributions from all the different members. Thanks so much everybody, having the covers just makes my experience gaming that much better. TOW420 excellent job with the PSX covers I nearly bust one when I saw the Xenogears covers, quite possibly my favorite RPG of all time ;)

    The Genesis set won't get a shrunken spine set until sometime after I finish redoing all the covers. I'll then send them to mastershoes where he will finalize the covers before he post them on his thread.
    I'm almost done with it actually too cuz I've been working around the clock on these bastards lol.
    As far as Master System goes, I ain't even had a chance to look at them yet so I don't know what's good on that.
    And thanks for the compliment for the PSone covers, I plan on finishing the set as soon as I finish Sega Genesis cuz I want the shrunken spine set too but I want the set cleaned first.
    I'll go ahead and make the Thrill Kill cover for you as well. I see it's an unreleased game so I went and made 2 covers for it. They're the right size so all you gotta do is point and save.
    These will also be in my next update which I plan to post early next week just for a heads up. B-)

    Alright everyone, I need some feedback!

    I am currently working on re-uploading all sets so that it's possible to download single covers or bulk download all covers via mediafire. (A few people have requested this).

    Here's an example that also includes an update!! (Note that the updated covers are available both in a seperate update folder, as well as incorporated with the others, this is how i would continue to do updates if i follow this setup).

    NES Shrunken Spine Set
    NES Standard Spine Set

    Please let me know how you feel about this setup, thanks! :)

    Yeah, I'm going for it, uploads have begun :) I'm going to do a full revamp of the 1st post soon. This will also make updating A LOT easier. You guys think I should still add an "all-inclusive" .rar like the ones up currently?

    Edit: Thread Updating has begun! Let me know what you think of the new format. If you have any suggestions, offer 'em up cuz now's the time!

    I think the all inclusive thing would still be good because with the mass renaming tools it's still easier the first time through instead of downloading individual titles.

    Individual titles is great once you get a single new game or a few new ones and they're not in the version of the big pack that you'd already downloaded the last time or you had just deleted them the last time.

    Also, It'd be nice if there was a mechanism to know which covers were added in the most recent update and the date of that update. (Maybe like having the 1) all inclusive pack, 2) last update pack, 3) and then individual cover downloads.)

    EDIT : Actually, now that I think of it, I think MediaFire shows the upload date so it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out which ones are new.

    Almost all the sets are named for "No-Intro". However, in cases where you have multiple coutries in your no-intro rom name, one of the countries gets dropped depending on the region of the cover.

    For example
    007 - GoldenEye (USA, Europe) If the cover is a USA cover, i drop the Europe from the title to end up at 007 - GoldenEye (USA).
