All the inane chatter goes in here. If you're curious about whether we will support a game, post HERE not in General Discussion :)

The issue is to do with the lack of clean source material, there are no known versions of the original artwork without the logo at a good enough resolution (some people have attempted to re-paint the missing sections before with little luck)

The closest we have to an clean piece is this

I attempted to contact both David Fox and the owner of that webpage, but neither of them were able to provide anything else.

Has anyone tried contacting Steve Purcell about it?

Now that the ScummVM family is growing, anyone thinking about making posters for other games? Like Sierra ones, for example.

I attempted looking up the artists who drew some of the cover artwork for Sierra games and found only one name among all of them. Tom or Tim something. And I found no information on him anywhere contact or otherwise. I do know that Christy Marx's husband drew the artwork for Conquests of Camelot I believe. Does she actually sell the poster for that already from her website, though?

Full Throttle Poster - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Full-Throttle-vid ... 3f033b26a1

Looks original, sadly the shipping to the UK is a little much for me.

Has anyone ever found anyone else doing this?
Creating high-res versions of vintage computer game art?

I'd love to get some more canvas posters printed out for my place with maybe some Interplay or Sierra games.

Anyone know of anyone else doing this sort of work?

There was a little error in the Grim poster (Hector's shoulder was cut off in the upper right corner). I've updated the link in the opening post so it leads to a corrected version. Sorry!

There seems to be problem with the zip file of the full-size poster or at least with the jpeg inside. I've downloaded it several times--different computers, different browsers--and each time the jpeg isn't readable by anything. But maybe I'm just very unlucky somehow. Anybody else have this problem?

I've zipped the file with 7-Zip... maybe using that solves the problem...

No, I don't think the program used is the issue. Have you tried testing/extracting yourself? I mean, just the updated one because the original I had no problem with. I only get a zero-byte file when I extract and the command-line error I get reads:

7-Zip [64] 9.13 beta Copyright (c) 1999-2010 Igor Pavlov 2010-04-15
p7zip Version 9.13 (locale=en_US.utf8,Utf16=on,HugeFiles=on,2 CPUs)

Processing archive: /home/MeddlingMonk/Desktop/GrimFandango_Poster.zip

Extracting GrimFandango_Poster.jpg Unsupported Method

Sub items Errors: 1


I've tried this with different programs (all supporting 7zip) on two computers (one 64-bit, the other 32-bit) and three operating systems and haven't encountered anything similar with any other compressed file that I can recall, so it makes me suspect that zip file.

For comparison I downloaded the files for MI1 and MI2. Both extracted just fine so I suppose that also seems to point a finger at the new GF zip.

Strang, I had no problems with the file whatsoever. On OS X using StuffIt.
