    Hi Mastershoes and sorry for the (very) late response.
    Here is my sg1000 set: https://www.dropbox.com/s/72noun20cf5g7ki/sg1000.rar?dl=0
    It is the original set, not the custom one by sion zaphod. Some scans were very hard to find and there are a few games still missing.
    Through some trial and error I found that the correct value for the spine is 59px (it had to be a odd number for the front and back covers to be equal in size). To achieve the correct proportions in Wiiflow I had to shrunk the original spines, so this is actually a shrunken set.
    Some of the blue covers spines are left to be shrunk, I'm not able to use macros to automate the process, and doing it manually has taken a lot of time for me, and now I'm into another time-consuming project (a Wiiflow Lite theme). So maybe I will try to adjust them when I will have more time, or if you want to resize them with macros you're more than welcome :)

    I'm currently working on a brand new set:
    PC-Engine Japan jewel case

    Reasons behind it
    :
    -PC Engine Hu-cards did not come in boxes like Turbografx-16 games, but in Jewel Cases boxes (identical to CD cases)
    -I was the one behind the PC-Engine CD-Rom set (which is my pride) and I think the PC-Engine deserves the same treatment as well:wub:
    -No more fake custom TG-16 covers for the many Japanese exclusives.
    -The japanese artworks were in many cases far better than the US ones.


    It will feature:
    -High quality scans
    -Almost 100% accurate spines* (there was not a standard spine for Jap games, but several ones with slightly different graphics/colors/logos e.g. Namcot, Irem, Hudson etc.)
    *The only difference from the real ones is that game titles will not be written in Kanji, and they will miss the Vol.# at the bottom.
    -Accurate plastic case color like the originals (The PC Engine games were produced in black jewel cases until the end of '91, and then started releasing in white cases)
    -Almost every game covered!

    It's a very long work and I'm currently halfway through
    Stay tuned and happy gaming!!:yaywii:

    It's finally over and ready to be released!
    PC-Engine Japan jewel case
    [Shrunken Spine for Wiiflow] [214 covers]
    download

    Covers are divided into black case and white case
    Reason is you can display them in Wiiflow with the right border color (black or white) for greater accuracy (see my previous post).
    If you don't care about it, then just put all covers in the same folder and you're set.
    Instead, if you want to see them with the correct border, follows these steps:
    - Make 2 plugins .ini files for pc engine like this:
    pce_black.ini
    pce_white.ini
    -Put your roms and covers in the respective folders (be sure that they match the ones specified in the .ini files)
    -Edit your source_menu.ini adding both those magic numbers, like this
    source_menu.ini

    Enjoy!

    Edit: Oh yes I forgot, if you haven't got a jewel case coverflow in your set up, you can use the Rhapsodii theme (or my Rhapsodii Shima edition;)).

    And I appreciate them but there’s only 30 or so out of over 200 games total.

    I have at least a folder with 103 2D covers if you're interested. I can check my backup drives to see if i had anything incomplete/in the works.

    That would be wonderful. They seem to be impossible to come by.

    Thank you.

    Update 03-25-19 - Added a complete no-intro wonderswan set.

    Put a lot of time into this one the last couple of weeks. I used [email protected]'s template as a base and modified it a little bit (added top bar & product codes). There are still a few that i cannot for the life of me find a back cover for, so for those I slapped together a mock back with a title & screenshot. I searched all over for the best art i could find, and converted a bunch from weird angle photos as well. Regardless, there are still some that I would love to upgrade the art for (mostly back covers) so if anyone ever comes across better quality scans/photos please send them my way! Also a shout out to [email protected] who created a great set of wonderswan game logos. I still had to make some, and changed a few, but it was a huge help finding those. And thanks also to @mccorkled who somehow got me going on this project, lol.

    OTHER RANDOM NOTES:

    -I am currently working on a complete no-intro Wonderswan Color/Crystal set. Hopefully done in the next month-ish. Need a couple days off after finishing this last set.

    -I'm also a good ways into a nice BBC Micro cover set. Currently up to about 130 covers, but I'm planning on finishing the other couple hundred before I release it. If someone really wants them though, i can post what i have.

    -I still have a LOT of other projects that are halfway done, I can't even think of everything that is in process.

    -Also planning on adding @Tetsuo Shima 's PC Engine Jewel Case set and @Wiimpathy 's MAME to the OP eventually.

    -HAVE FUN!

    Here's a Snes pack containing covers collected in this thread and other sources, some are custom. It's unsorted, quality vary from very low/draft to high quality. It's mostly pal and a few are french.
    The 'Scraped_Unsorted' folder has vertical and horizontal mixed. Some needs resized and most needs renaming. Anyway here it is:

    SuperNes Missing pack
