I remember getting this one new for my birthday present and thinking how cheap it was of Sega to make it one of their first Genesis games ever to come in CARDBOARD. So today I am rectifying this error once and for all by heading down to Kinkos and print out a custom made insert for their plastic casings, high res 300 dpi.

Anyone interested in this? 20 meg file, pdf or eps. Quarter inch bleed on all sides for cropping.

I'd be interested if I had broadband & a great printer; instead I'll just say, "nice job man!".

I'm tooting my own horn but I don't care, it looks GREAT. I took it to Kinkos and had it printed on glossy 8 point stock paper, only cost 2.60.

I also happen to have a Photoshop file ready that's 11 megs. I spent alot of time scanning seperate elements and cleaning them up.

It very much does look excellent though if I may ask you please do where do you get those empty genesis boxs from. I can't seem to find them anywhere these days.

Just scavange cases from sports games usually, you can get them cheap and in bulk from Ebay.

Might I just say it's AWESOME that you're doing this. There's a whole scene in the Neo Geo world for people making custom inserts so people with MVS carts can have their carts look like the home carts on a shelf. I always wondered why someone didn't do this for the Genny games that came in a cardboard box.

Heh, I actually cut the box and put it inside an old X-Men case the day I got the game. Not as cool as yours, but it works.

I've done that to with every cardboard case I've had. It looks great.

By the way Awesome job Mr. Sausage. :D

I'd love to get those files....

But i'd love it even more if you'd make one of those for Phantasy Star 4

I'll be posting a 'permanent' link for these files later today or tomorow. As for the PS4 box, I don't have it to scan and work from, and I don't think I'll be getting the game, so... :P

Hmmm, you'd have to cut up the box to scan it right? Maybe i'd be willing to give up my box if you'd make a sleeve for it.

I wouldn't mind sending it to you at all if you didn't have to cut it, but if you do... maybe :)

Still, great work on what you've done so far. I've been looking all over for someone to make these sleeves :D

There's no cutting involved, but I'm not interested in doing it right now.

..I don't think I'll be getting the game..
Self serving, I know. :D

I've converted the files into 1-meg jpegs and threw them up on Angelfire.

Hmm, this seems like a good spot to plunk this one down:

(on a different site since I have bandwidth to burn on this one)

Almost 3 years have passed, and i've lost the scans :(

Anyone have anymore scans? Especially Phantasy Star 4, Shining Force 2 and Light Crusader?

I came across this (http://iskor.free.fr/covers/Sonicknucklesj.jpg) scan of the Japanese S&K box. I'm gonna go on a Photoshop mission and either clean this up, or make a new one from scratch.

Oh god yes, someone please repost the sonic and knuckles. And if you really wanna be a hero make one for Chaotix. The fact that that game gets cardboard while wrestling gets plastic is a travesty.

They've been re-uploaded so the original urls should work again. Here they are anyway:

Sonic &Knuckles (http://www.angelfire.com/apes/madmeat/SKslip.jpg)
3D Blast (http://www.angelfire.com/apes/madmeat/3DBlast2.jpg)

Don't worry about the top edge of the insert looking like crap, it's all gone by the time you trim it to fit the case. I used the slightly wider 'Sega Classics' type clamshell for the S&K slip btw since normal Genesis clamshells aren't wide enough for the unusually shaped mushroom cartridge. Could also use EA cases as they're thicker sometimes as well.

I'd be willing to attempt to make a box for Knuckles Chaotix if someone can provide me with decent scans. man i hate those cardboard boxes...
