    I'm making a label for the Tales of Symphonia 2 game, I haven't played it yet so I'm not sure on what icons to put on the label.

    I'm assuming it's a single player game, so I'll put a '1' on the Wii controller icon... does it also use the Nunchuk?

    Just want to confirm before I make the label.

    Yes. The game does make use of the nun-chuk.

    Here's the label I made if anyone is interested:

    I used the wiisc_disk.psd Photoshop template to make the CD, along with some artwork and the logo obtained from Google Images. I hope it's useful for someone, I also uploaded it to CDCovers.cc.

    Just a suggestion
    DO NOT USE A LABEL.
    they can cause disk errors and cause your disks to eventually become useless. The glue on them can also help ruin you disk drive. My Solution. Just use a sharper or pens at radio shack which are made for the use to right on disks.

    I guess I should have stated, that's exactly what I'm doing.

    classicrock1169, I hear what you're saying, I would have to kick my own ass if I ever inserted a disc into my Wii that had a paper label on it. [​IMG]

    I have a Canon Pixma iP4300 printer (can be bought for less than $100 these days) which comes with a disc carriage, it allows me to print directly onto the disc using inkjet printable media. The result is stunning, full-color backup discs that look far better than the washed-out bland colors that my original discs use. The labels can never peel since there is no paper/glue involved, the surface of the disc is manufactured with inkjet printable materials, so it's not damaged by the ink.

    So that's why I like to create labels for games that I can't find labels for... I like my collection to be consistent and also look nice. I could do up a tutorial some time if anyone is interested in creating their own labels using the Photoshop template, it's pretty simple once you get the hang of it.

    I can't believe the person who replied first didn't answer though about the player number.

    Yes, it's 1 player game when adventuring, however while battling you can play with up to 4 people..
