    Hey, folks!

    As you know, I'm in the process of migrating my entire GBA collection from a dusty box in the corner of my basement to DS cases. To make them look nicer, I've been printing covers for them (as seen here).

    Since I have the time and the inclination, I decided to make covers for my GB flash carts as well, but I need help!

    If you have the box for any GBA Flash cart please scan each side of them as straight as possible at 600dpi, post em here/PM them to me, and I'll turn them into a boxart.

    Below are some that I've already completed. BTW, the spelling mistakes are on purpose.

    EZF Advance
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    XG Flash
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    EZ-Flash IV
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    EZ-Flash IV - Black Variant (for new MicroSD version)
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    SuperCard MiniSD
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    EMS GB USB Smart Card (GBC)
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    I'll be posting more here as I complete them, as well as at The Cover Project (if they'll take them, anyway).

    Looking good. Are you going to make some for the M3 cards and the EZ Flash IV?

    I have the scans for the M3 perfect, but I'm struggling with the reflected image on the box. I'm thinking I'll just remake the boxart (just like I did for the others so far). I can't seem to find any boxes for my EX Flash IV cards. If anyone has them, they could scan them for me and I'll do my best to make a boxart.
    If you can, flatten the box. Then scan it in at 600dpi and host it online somewhere and PM me the link. I'll add the images to the top and work on the boxart.

    As an aside, I only have boxes for M3 Perfect and Supercard CF. If anyone has scans of any other boxart, send them along!

    I'll have a look around for an EZ-F IV box for you. I know I have one somewhere, it's just a matter of finding the thing!

    Thadius, I thought you had the XG2 Turbo flash card? Why did you make an XG Flash cover instead?

    Damn, I can't find my box. I think I may have got confused with my EZ Flash 3 in 1 as I came across the box for that and I didn't think I even had one...

    I have EZ-Flash IV (wooden box) and Extreme Flasher Advance (longcart version, wooden box)...

    I wonder if I can scan a wooden box well :unsure:

    Hey, I'm interested in this. Will the EZ Flash IV box art fit a DS case?

    This project became a little stagnated as I still haven't received any other box arts.

    For the EZ Flash IV the only box I had (but can't find) was completely white with logo in black, but I'm pretty sure there's a much more colourful one lurking around that maybe has some text on it I can' migrate to the boxart. Any help would be appreciated.
