I can do that up soon -- you have a preference on adding the logo to the front? I was toying around with the dragon + text logo vs the text logo on the bottom left in the blackness. Your call though, if you're requesting it for 360. ;)

Sorry if I come off as incredibly stupid, but is there a kind of paper/printer I should use? I want it to look exactly like a normal cover.

Printed using a HP F4480 that the gf bought for $40 last year to do wedding invitations. Swiped some HP Professional Paper for Laser printers in Matt, A4, 200gsm. Used Photoshop to print out, changing the size at printing. Unfortunately it seems a bit too tall for the PAL cases, might need to crop them out in future.
Looks a thousand times better than the busy original cover. Thinking that Matt doesn't pop enough and may have to pick up some Semi Gloss paper. As it looks a little washed out.

I was thinking the same as the PS3 boxart just replaced with the greyed out 360 logo.

But your other idea sounds good. :)

Wasn't too bad really, just had to get used to it. Only looks weird up close.
Planning on doing a batch and taking them to the office store next to work, they will probably let me use the guillotine.

Maybe your printer isn't obeying the software (I know my printer doesn't).
When I print from Photoshop to my printer (Canon MG5150) and tell it to print as 27.3cm x 14.83cm (10.75" x 5.84"), the printer actually prints it as 27.7cm x 15.1cm (10.9" x 5.92").

So I had to reprint and reprint until I got the numbers needed for my printer to actually print it as 27.3cm x 14.83cm (10.75" x 5.84").

Edit:
However will be printing so that the finished covers will be at 27.2.cm x 14.8cm (10.7"x 5.82") in the future, slightly less problem placing it in the plastic-cover of the case.

Hey RedSwirl, is there a reason why the 360 version of these covers are more desaturated? Most pronounced was the Farcry3 one, but after that, I noticed it on all of them. Does the green case mess with the colours, so you desaturated them or something?

I tried printing from my printer (my dad recently gave me his HP 6300) and while quality was good, colours were way off. Greys all looked green.


:(



Also, I'm thinking of making some templates for OG Xbox, Gamecube and GBA if anyone's interested.

Thanks for the detail! I'll use those sizes with the next lot of prints. Looking forward to doing some Gog.com ones as well.

Yeah I got the same when test-printing the Assassins Creed one with the upside-down building, greenish instead of greyish.
Might have been just because I printed onto normal paper, not photo-paper, and with standard settings not photo-settings.

Well, just measure your printed cover, and see how much to big it is, next time subtract that amount from width x height and print see if its fits better into the "27.2cm x 14.8cm" or "27.3cm x 14.83cm" measurements.

I tried on photopaper too and got the same result. It may be that I need to try HP photopaper (this was a batch of Epson paper I had left over from the last time I had a printer).

I probably just need to spend a few days, tons of paper and probably all my ink trying to calibrate by eye... or buy a colourimeter and see if I can do it properly. Expensive either way :(

Some great stuff in this thread. If I didn't do design & layout stuff all day for work, I might be inclined to join in the fun.

Looking at some of these covers make me want to play games I haven't touched in months.

Amen to that! Hell, I want to buy them, printer & paper so I can look at them. Then, line up all the spines in perfect OCD style and stare at their magnificence. Oh yeah.

Forgot the drop shadow on the spine logo -- but because of the scaling/layer shenanigans I had to pull to change proportions to the 360 case size, the spine wasn't as similar in orange tint to the logo, so it doesn't look bad, I think.

If for some reason, you want something tweaked, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

If it's anything it's the cover format itself. I did nothing to the images between versions.

I'd rather not mess with the front. I actually didn't do that art. It's a piece of fan art I found somewhere (probably DA). That's why I left that signature in the corner to keep credit to whoever did it.

No idea. If I ever find contact info for the guy who did that art I'll tell you guys.
