Our biggest need, if this project is to succeed, is high quality scanned
images. Most of the rest of the stuff to be on the disk,
like technical texts, has already been written; with some
tweaking, what we have will work fine.
But we still need the best possible pictures we can get, of
things like box art, advertisements and cartridges and/or tape software
Paul and Ward have the vast majority of all the software
cartridges we will need for this project, thanks to our ROM image archiving
project. (We bought all we could, and kept them. But a few we had to
borrow, or get someone to dump the images for us; this was a handful
of carts that we and the owners deemed too hard to replace, if they
had gotten lost.)
Box art we have far less of, however. We hope you folks
have lots of this? Remember
that we put together the
entire cart collection, one cart at a time. Even
if we have to do
the same with a collection of box pictures, it is
still do-able. And we have ample time.
Ward has done a lot of experimenting, and has
now posted some useful
scanning tips for all of you out there who
might want to help us out.

are just curious, click
