Looking for NES game scans....

by wclem Wed Jul 22, 2009 8:13 pm

My copy of Metal Gear for the NES has a torn label and I would like to print one out to replace it. I have some glossy labels that would work for this but no scan. I am not even sure anyone has done this.

I am sorry, I should have been more specific. I am looking for the cartridge label.

I would suggest using that scan he posted of the cover and resizing it to fit the NES label resolution, that's a pretty high quality scan and is basically the same as the label on the NES game. With a small amount of editing on photoshop you could get it to look exactly the same all you need is the top of it game, but since that is just text you could add that part yourself.

Yeah I was thinking of trying that. It should work, thanks.
