    Years ago I laboriously downloaded every box art from Raffles' GBA Box Art and screenies. I dug out my old drive that I thought I'd stored them on but sadly I can't find them and the old site is gone.

    Does anyone have a complete collection that they could zip and upload somewhere? Thanks in hope. :)

    Well http://releases.pocketheaven.com/ is still up and running and it seems to have some box-art still. Dunno if that helps at all.

    EDIT: Hm, come to think of it, that may actually help more than I thought. It seems that the urls are very consistent in format. For instance, here are the image URLs for the first three games:

    http://releases.pocketheaven.com/showimage.php?sys=gba&sec=titleshot&rel=0001
    http://releases.pocketheaven.com/showimage.php?sys=gba&sec=ingame&rel=0001
    http://releases.pocketheaven.com/showimage.php?sys=gba&sec=titleshot&rel=0002
    http://releases.pocketheaven.com/showimage.php?sys=gba&sec=ingame&rel=0002
    http://releases.pocketheaven.com/showimage.php?sys=gba&sec=titleshot&rel=0003
    http://releases.pocketheaven.com/showimage.php?sys=gba&sec=ingame&rel=0003

    It should be fairly simple to craft up a simple script to automate the downloading of those files sequentially in some command language. If done correctly, it would only need to be executed once (so as not to accidentally DDoS the PocketHeaven servers)
