    you need to take your vbagx.ini and and make 2 copies of it so now u have 3 rename them so its easy to keep track of whats what
    now that u got 3 "seperate" inis copy this code into each individual ini
    GameBoy
    Code:
    [PLUGIN]
    magic=56424168
    coverColor=fcff00
    coverFolder=vbagx
    fileTypes=.bin|.elf|.mb|.dmg|.gb|.zip|.7z
    romDir=vbagx/roms
    dolFile=vbagx-mod12.dol
    bannerSound=gba.ogg
    displayname=GameBoy
    consoleCoverID=nintendo
    arguments={device}:/{path}|{name}|{loader}
    
    GameBoy Color
    Code:
    [PLUGIN]
    magic=56424178
    coverColor=fcff00
    coverFolder=vbagx
    fileTypes=.bin|.elf|.mb|.dmg|.gbc|.cgb|.sgb|.zip|.7z
    romDir=vbagx/roms
    dolFile=vbagx-mod12.dol
    bannerSound=gba.ogg
    displayname=GameBoyColor
    consoleCoverID=nintendo
    arguments={device}:/{path}|{name}|{loader}
    
    GameBoyAdvance
    Code:
    [PLUGIN]
    magic=56424188
    coverColor=fcff00
    coverFolder=vbagx
    fileTypes=.agb|.gba|.bin|.elf|.mb|.dmg|.zip|.7z
    romDir=vbagx/roms
    dolFile=vbagx-mod12.dol
    bannerSound=gba.ogg
    displayname=GameBoyAdvance
    consoleCoverID=nintendo
    arguments={device}:/{path}|{name}|{loader}
    
    Those should work for u if not make sure u check the source menu.ini and double check your magic #s
    also There has been updates since mastershoes last updated this u need another line of code
    arguments={device}:/{path}/|{name}|{loader} if you were using the guide in the beginning of this thread as a reference to setting up your .inis
    I hope this helps you man good luck

    Nice i want to get in on some of this cover action and im with you i like the cd style over dvd cases what are you using photoshop? i was going to try and figure out gimp a little bit better today but then got side tracked setting up psx games ill prob be doing this for the next day or so. Then after that im going to try my hand at a few covers myself :)

    edit: been messing with gimp for the past 2 hrs and failing hard cant figure out how to stretch layers :unsure:
    Bed time giving it another shot tommarow

    Thanks Dump. I'm glad you like my covers. I got a few more made for an upcoming update. And honestly I'm using only Windows Paint, nothing fancy.

    btw, I don't mind doing request for playable titles only.

    edit: i like the cd style cases better but i think it will be easier for us to just use the dvd box sizes for now since there are already some made on a few sites we could just resize them and put on a uniformed spine:unsure:

    It's good for a first attempt.. maybe better then my first lol.
    Your right tho, there is a lack of CD style covers, but since I favor them I have been making more of them as I test each game out to playable levels.
    Here is a new update too. This set I spent alot of time doing spines and it really shows I think.

    Sweet, Awesome to see that you're jumping on these CD style PS1 covers guys. I'm currently wrapped up trying to get the NTSC Wiiware shiz up to par, and will be back on retro covers as soon as i get caught up.. would like to get back to the point of finishing up that set too. Got a couple pending updates coming sometime soon, will let you know when there together and posted! Updates to come are more GameBoy covers from ToW420, some VB Homebrew covs from Cool1, some neo-geo covers i found that i'm re-working to be "wii-friendly", and maybe eventually i'll get the PS1 DVD style and Sega Saturn covers up... Also, now that i'm thinking about it... i think Seam put together some Wonderswan covers and sent them to me awhile back.. imma try and get on those tas well eventually. So much to do! Ahhhhhhh!

    Edit: Added 50 New Gameboy Classic Covers (+2 Alts) courtesy of ToddofWar420, thanks buddeh!

    Edit #2: Added the "Shrunken Spine" Atari 2600 set now that the plugin has been released (Woot! Thanks Fix!). There have also been a few more covers added to the set.

    I'll be releasing a "First Edititon" of Neo-Geo Covers by the weekend sometime, should be pretty near complete for everything that's supported on the wii. I have lots of additional artwork, so I have to sort that out, and I'll probably end up swapping some covers in & out and putting together an alternates set when i can get everything sorted/re-sized. This set is pretty nice so far, but still needs a lot of small details worked out, which will come in time. Anyway, here's a quick preview!

    Neo-Geo Covers have arrived!

    -Update 11-30-12: Added a "Shrunken Spine" Neo-Geo set. It should be just about complete for everything supported on the Wii (I know of 3 working homebrew games that are missing covers... Columns, Neo-Pong, and Zintrick). I renamed them all to match up with the zip files needed for each game, so adding these to your sets should be quick and painless. I plan on editing this set (some minor adjustements to make them a bit more uniform) and adding a bunch of Alternate covers when I get the time to do so. Have fun!

    Thanks to Dump & Abz for providing a list that I can work with instead of having to test the games then make the covers. Now I can focus more on the covers.

    Please enjoy these covers as update 5 will be here before you know it. B-)

    In honor of all the work mastershoes has done, I submit an 'almost complete' CPS-1 set with "shrunken spines" for Retroarch. I made these using flyers and marquees.

    Coolio, thanks for the contributions guys! :)

    Updated the Virtual Boy Set. cool1 (a member on another forum) had sent me some covers... and although it turns out i couldn't use any of them, he did inspire me to make a few more vb covers. There are 6 New homebrew covers, a US SD Gundam cover (english patch has recently been released!) and a couple alternates.. preview of the new ones below. You can get them here, or in the op in a couple minutes.

    Dude I joined after 2 hours of reading this thread to say.

    HOLY SH!T !!!! This is amazing work.

    People like all of you are the reason Games are still alive.....

    **
    This is a reason for me to keep on gaming with my Wii..

    For some reason a pretty box cover picture makes the game better.

    I've been doing covers non-stop here lately so I plan to take tomorrow off so I can have myself a break and spend time with my Daughter. I also heard that there is a thing outside called "A Sun" and I would like to check it out sometime. Don't worry tho, update 6 will be here Monday night, maybe earlier.
    Enjoy!

    Thanks man, appreciate it! I didn't have any cps1 covers in the works, so these definately help fill the gap. Are you planning on finishing the set? Only 12 to go!
    Get out! Have fun man! Look forward to more of these cd style covers, they're lookin' great buddeh!

    @Everyone - Added a set of alternates for Neo-Geo, also swapped out 7 covers from the original upload (the original 7 are now in with the alts). They are all named properly and ready to go, but there are a few files that have multiple alts,these are signified with a (2) or (3) at the end of the filename. Another note, there are "Bust-A-Move" versions of the 2 "Bubble Bobble covers" included in with the alts.. those will have to have to be renamed as well if you decide to use them.

    Have fun!

    Edit: Also just updated the WonderSwan set to include the covers seam had sent me awhile back. See the opening post for more info!

    Also decided that I will be doing a FULL LINK UPDATE in about a month.. This will allow me to cleanup the page my merging all update links into one, and also will let me get the iddy biddy updates implemented without having to worry about them anymore. If you haven't grabbed the updates, i recommend doing so soon.

    I just so happen to have them all except Sonic 2 & Knuckles. In total, I'm sitting on like 170+ new Genesis covers I've been working on as a sidequest before I started the PSone covers. I will post the requested ones you asked for except S&K2, but I will replace it with another Sonic title but other then that, I'm saving the rest for MS for the much needed Genesis update. Also these are the unshrunken spines too cuz I want to give them to MS this way so he can update both sets. Let's just call this a preview of what's coming for our next Genesis set. Behold..
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    All covers are this clean. They consist of missing covers we don't have, unreleased titles, Japan Translations, Alternates covers, & hacks (only the best).
    Release date is set for Christmas.
    Enjoy these my friends.
