Sabre Wulf standard case inlay

Whether it's Mire Mare or a BASIC tape you found in the attic, it needs to be preserved digitally. Post here and experts can help to do so.

But when he say 'jewel', what does he mean?
Jewel = standard case.
So they're legal copies, aren't they? :?:

For JMV, no doubt of it.

I have to say, it looks like a very nicely done inlay if it is a copy someones done. In fact, I like it so much, I did a digital recreation of it by tracing the scan, as I've done with the proper booklets that came inside the big boxed titles.

just finished the inside scan, still working on the front.

The illustrator file does have guides indicating where to fold, but I could add those to a printable PDF if anyone wants it.

The text is all a bit misaligned, so I've 'subtly' corrected it and straightened it in this version. Also moved the 2nd and 3rd pages left a little, as they sit very close to the folds. Perhaps thats an indication that its indeed a reproduction of some kind, as ULTIMATE probably would've been more careful on that unless they didn't care much as it was a cheaper version.

Phew!!

That took longer than expected!

So heres the front of the inlay;

and the link to 27mb of fully vectorised inlay (front and back)

I need to now do a version with the original poster art, which will hopefully give a smaller file size too!

I don't suppose anyones got a scan of the cassette from this release have they? Or is it the same as the normal one from the big box?

Better version here using the poster elements applied over a background to keep it looking cleaner.

and the PDF;

I now need to trace the mono SW logo on the cassette label, as its different to the cover logo. Then the label is done too.

Would these type of digital preservations qualify as being suitable to put on the site at all?

If so, I can provide the full instructions I've already done some time ago for;

Alien 8
Knight Lore
Underwurlde
Bubbler

There are quite a few others that are in an incomplete state that I just need motivation, and time, to complete.

Cheers. If these were uploaded to the site how would they be best described with a short comment underneath?

I'll have a crack with @PeterJ, the 27Mb vector is probably too hefty to justifty IMO, but the others are good.

I think it would be best to disregard the full vectorised one, as that was really just an experiment. Clearly the one with the elements used from the poster is better, and allows the images to be compressed within the PDF, giving even the Hi-res one as only 3.5mb-ish.

The Full sizes instructions are quite big too, but if I save them with slightly reduced quality image parts, then I should be able to bring them down to sensible levels.
