    Does anyone know where I can find a pack of all the Genesis cartridge covers/labels for use with Genesis Plus GX?

    Also, I just noticed that SNES9x and FCE Ultra have mods that feature cover flow, are these decent enough to try out or is it best to just use the latest version? And where can I get cover packs for these?

    I have complete romsets, so Googling each game's cover art might be a daunting task.

    in Genesis Plus GX you can take a screenshot and use it as the cover. just go to the main menu when you are on the games start/logo screen and on the bottom right you will see a screenshot button click it and than it will become the carts cover.

    he doesnt want to do that for every game. im sure he has the entire goodset on the drive.

    i searched for this in the past but never found it. i wish we could get a SNESTDB.com, NESTDB.com and so on. then when the emulators support the covers officially we would have a database to download from.

    this site has both box and cart scans for most of the retro consoles: http://arcadeartlibrary.com/screenshotarchive/scans.htm a great resource I have used for my mame/emulator frontend on my pc. Also http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/forum/download...=cat&id=116 has some great cart scans boxart and even 3D styled box art, though the only genesis art you'll find will be in the forums where some users have generously provided their own works for box and cart art...you need to sign up on the site but it only takes a minute and it an excellent resource!

    I have a thread posted at DarkUmbra that has roughly 800 nes/snes/Gen cartridge and box art for the three emulators. I also have 3D covers posted for nes and snes. They're all re-sized to work with the coverflow versions of the emulators.

    I have uploaded a snes rom+cover prepared for the emulator to work, because what jj-kwik is saying to you is to go to a forum and registry (once more) into another place, thus privacing releases.

    I personally searched and cleaned most of the covers and selected the roms as the best for myself (~130), (even unreleased titles in the west) and although I had in mind to make it public in the next week, I can give you the link by PM (its already up). Just messege me because I think it's not allowed in the threads.

    You can't send PMs as a new member. I think you have to have at least 20 posts.

    No, and it's against the rules to ask for ROMs, ISOs, etc.
