Is this your own stuff? I don't suppose you have 300dpi versions of these do you? I'd love to release KO2 for you guys...

Mind you, you should know it will be a lot of work. But if you are interested, please take a look at this:

No worries Kieron. In 2 weeks, we will have perfectly scanned KO2 boxes in 300Dpi. I'll take my scanner with me in Italy just for that. I am a bit of a perfectionist considering scans, so expect everything in the FTP on the 13-14 of May...

I know, you are a star! :) I was just trying to save you some work. ;)

So, thanks for the offer Stainy, however in retrospect, I guess it is best to see how manicx gets on first. We may as well get them all done at once because we need the box sides & manuals scanned too before we can do any releases (which I assume you didn't do ;)), and sometimes problems occurs if side scans are from different boxes.

Hopefully Dino's stuff is in sparkling condition! :D

Well I`ll leave it up to Manicx for the while.. although he has stated that he`s leaving the KOA, so I don`t know how thats going to go.. with his enthusiasm level..
I have everything here still.. I can do side scans and manuals if needed though
All the boxes are originals.. not the repacked ones.. al the data disks too.. all are manualed..

how would you do the side scans? scan them seperate and clip them together in PS or something?? just interested is all

Dino`s stuff in sparkling condition ?? didn`t know he had anything. everything he has has been scanned and donated by other people..

Oh dear, looks like I have stumbled in dodgy territory. :)
Okay, lets see how it goes.

Anyway, sides of boxes - they are easily scanned, because we keep them separate, no joining is needed (or wanted). It is all explained in the guidelines, but if you wonder why they are kept separate, see here:

For an idea about what is likely to happen in the future (with Marc's help).

Apart from anything else, it would be hard to print a whole box on one sheet of A4 anyway. And if people have A3 printers, they can join them up easily enough themselves. :)

No worries, I am not leaving until I finish my mission. Kieron, the boxes belong to an Italian friend who has the originals boxed. Basically, I need the box as I do own the manual. I will scan the manual during the weekend with the boxes to follow next week. All I need from Dino is the unprotected master. :wink:
