    Post the raw scans (600 DPI preferred) and we'll deal with it.

    These look pretty much fine to me. We're never going to get super duper hyper accurate scans due to the nature of the medium, but as long as the text is readable and it looks more-or-less like it should, that's usually alright.

    Yes

    even if someone beats you to it and gives us good scans, if you're able to provide us with even better scans, that would be lovely.

    Here are some scans I did, 600dpi scaled to 300 dpi and cropped the best I could. I hope this is helpful.

    Edit: sorry, I think this is the wrong topic, if someone can move that'd be helpful :(

    I've uploaded scans posted in this topic, this one and even from the front page story's comments. I will find things.

    Because I can't update the front page:

    -Aaaah Real Monsters
    -Beavis and Butthead
    -Boogerman
    -Chuck Rock II
    -Dashin' Desperados
    -Frogger
    -Jeopardy!
    -Lemmings
    -Mario Andretti Racing (cardboard box version)
    -NBA Live 95
    -NFL 95
    -NHL 95
    -Pac-Mania
    -Ren & Stimpy: Stimpy's Invention
    -Tom & Jerry: Frantic Antics
    -World Series Baseball
    -Wiz 'n' Liz
    -WWF Royal Rumble
    -X-Men

    we now have US catridge scans for all of the above. We could ideally do with better versions for some of them, but most are fine at this stage.


    to answer many questions about what needs scanning, and the quality of said scans, I have produced a temporary page which gives an overview of what needs to be done:

    http://segaretro.org/Template_talk:ScanCount

    the totals are inaccurate and only give a rough estimate of the work that needs doing. The numbers are hard to calculate because obviously, cardboard box scans come in multiple parts and some games didn't have covers, and etc.. This is why it is a temporary page.

    As you can see we have the vast majority of Mega Drive box scans for the three bigger regions, but about 75% of them are terrible. Less than half of the known Mega Drive games have cartridge scans at all though, hence our current push to collect more.

    I've seen a lot of games I own and can scan now in the EU missing cart scan section, I'll scan them in a few days.
