    @Wiimpathy I noticed some of the games are horizantal compared to vertical. I made the vertical ones horizontal check them out.

    Yes, it really depends of the game, it's like Snes/Super Famicom, sometimes they're better vertically. The original mattel for example that shows the handheld which is largely taller than wider. Those boxes are special since you can fold the back :

    Others are a mix of vertical front/horizontal back: https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/images/97978
    Some boxes in the pack like mario's bomb have the screenshot too stretched.

    Thanks for sharing. But almost all these covers are present in other arcade sets.
    blazingstar : Neogeo
    dungeons... & Marvel... : CPS2
    You'll find cabal and tonma(loht) in this archive : https://gbatemp.net/threads/cover-c...ith-cover-support.324714/page-93#post-8541759

    Here's another pack made by @Pepois too: Mame 91 covers + alt
    That's an old pack he sent me, it has a few original and alt covers not found here.

    Some of yours may be better or the front/back may be combined with others sources.

    There have been discussions of a collaborative job of testing the mame2003 games too. Because it's cool to have covers but it's even better when the game works! It's a long task, maybe you can join the forces with @mastershoes and @Tetsuo Shima

    Just dropping a line to let you guys know that I've made significant progress on the MAME Flyer set this last couple weeks. Currently sitting around 850 covers with 130+ Alts. I hope to get it up to par to release in a week or two, we'll see.

    Hello, long time lurker, first time poster.
    There were so many covers that I leeched, but quite a few I was missing.
    So I threw together a few, just quick and dirty. There were some back covers that I could only find in low res, but I just threw them on there even though they were blurry. Shrunken spine, you might have some of these already, but I thought I would share.

    Wow, thanks :D I hope they fill the void. At the worst, they'll make nice placeholders. I'm moving onto NES now...
    Here's part 1 (there is a 'z' in there because... I don't know)

    NES-missing-01

    Oh, the majority of those are Unlicensed and Unreleased Prototypes. Just quick and dirty again. Hope people find them useful.
    I feel like I should add an identifier to make it possible to search this thread for missing covers, so
    Shrunken Spine, NES Unlicensed Unreleased Prototype Bubble Bath Babes Missing Custom
    That should do. It's possible many of these covers have already been done, but after all my online searching, I couldn't find them.
    Thanks to GamesDB launchbox and TheCoverproject. (that's dot net) After finishing my missing NES, I'll move on to missing Sega etc Stoked to contribute!

    @Wiimpathy are you asking me to help out with mame2003? @troipoison nice covers B-)
    and I know some of these games exist for other emulators but like myself, I like cover artwork to match for the section it is. MAME games and a NEOGEO in the mix would bug me for ages :rofl2:

    Not asking, a suggestion at best. It was just to avoid unecessary work. On Wii, cps2 & neogeo are only playable with their dedicated FBA core not with Mame.

    But I get you prefer the mvs cover for the arcade section. I prefer the aes boxes but it's good to have both, just a matter of taste.

    Always happy to have more contributors! Just FYI, I'm pretty sure I have all the TCP covers (even if they're not in the current sets), but I seriously have like 40 sets that have pending updates.. slowly but surely, lol.

    @mastershoes I am currently taking the box covers provided my wiimpathy and I am re imaging them to 1090 by 680 so that they are wii flow compatible
    As well as made all the box covers the same orientation. Should be the complete set to be honest..... maybe 1-2 missing

    @mastershoes I totally forgot to give you a huge thanks for all the covers. I kind of thought it went without saying. You are making things nice and simple for everyone.
    I'm hoping it's all good that I just dump these covers I made. They are not to the highest of standards, and will most likely serve as a simple fill in until you update.
    If I can't find a back cover, I think it looks cool to make a point of saying it's an unreleased prototype.
    This is my latest offering, and there are some I could not find any existence of, so I guess I'll just remove (I'd rather have no ROM, than a ROM with no cover) the ROM from my collection.
    In closing, I'm pushing 50, so I'm going to have to ask what "TCP" is. I should have DM/PM (whatever the fuck) so I didn't look like a dork, but it looks like bullying is dead now, so inform me :D

    Thanks for the site, but many of them are already here. The ones that are missing are actually located on here. For example, game and watch doesn't exist on there.

    EDIT: @mastershoes Here are 55 covers for Game & Watch games. Thank you @Wiimpathy for the files, I resized them, removed green backgrounds, added correct artwork and if none found, added the machine, etc. They are Wii Flow Ready to be used horizontal. All can be found here

    Thanks for clarification.
    Here are some Master System covers I was missing. They might exist on here elsewhere, but I haven't been able to find them.
    Shrunken Spine Vertical.
    I decided to also list the covers in here so any search might help out others. I put a little more effort into these.

    @troipoison Thank you for the hard work! Just to let you know, if you type something out, for example "Link here" you can highlight the word link and press on the 7th option in your editor, the link, provide the url so that a link like this appears "link here"

    @Danimalzpwn3 Thanks for the feedback, I have gone back and updated the links from my previous posts. I should have thought of inserting a link. Derp. :P

    Goodnight. First of all, great input and thanks in advance. I'm starting on this Wii and this will help me a lot.

    One question, I see that in some emulators you recommend Shruken spin. Would the same be for Sega?
