For a long timeI aways had that dream of what if in 1977 as Atari VCS was first release that same year they had a 10th game on that relase date and that one game was Star Wars. I love to see how and if they did made a Star Wars game with the 2600 game list so here's my take on how the game and or box labels may had look like. I know that the TEXT cart was first but I like the Picture image better^_^

Do you mean how to make an actual cartridge? If that is the case, you would need to burn the file onto an EPROM, install it on a 2600 PCB (AtariAge sells these), install in your cartridge housing and apply the label. If you don't have a EPROM programmer, I can burn a ROM for you cheap. PM me if interested.

If you meant something else, you might want to explain it better :)

Would be cool to see labels for Dukes of Hazzard, Pac Man Plus and Fonz :)
Or better still a label for Tod Frye's long rumoured masterpiece "Swordquest Fonzworld"

Of course :) I created one for the 2600, 5200, 7800 labels. Please send me an IM as I am using my employers bandwidth and they are kind of large RARed up. Also requires Photoshop, PaintShop Pro, or GIMP (http://www.gimp.org).

Corey

Oh, check out http://www.8bitclassics.com/forum for the different repros I have done and for some homebrews that are in the works. Full glory, can download and print off.

The template (and labels I create) are meant for the blank labels I sell at my site.

Here's one I created as a possible homebrew. The game is pretty much a "Joe Versus The Volcano" concept.

Thought is would be cool to use a spin off of the original Pac-Man box art for Pac Man 8k:
