Synapse Poster

Recommended Posts

I've been working on this for the last few days - all I need is a high rez scan of Alley Cat (wink wink, nudge nudge, nag nag) to finish it. When complete, I can provide a 150DPI version of the file can that be sent to Wal-Mart (or anyone else who does large prints) for printing as a 30" x 20" poster (approximately $25)

 

I'd like to invite other collectors to put together similar posters for other publishers (EA, Infocom, etc) (I used MS Publisher - but it could be done in almost any DTP program)

 

It would be nice to have a library of posters available. (and really nice to have a scan of Alley Cat too!!!)

Yeah... no one ever said back in the day that it requires OS-B to play correctly...

 

Maybe someone will do "non OS-b" fix for this (or maybe it is somewhere?).

This copy of Shadow World works on XL/XE. I seem to remember that Slime and Nautilus are the only Synapse games that don't have XL versions yet. Could be mistaken tho.

Update

 

I printed a test copy of the poster a Costco today (they do 20" x 30" for $18 and 24" x 32" for $20) ... and it looks really really good! All except for the low rez scan I have of Alley Cat - can anyone help?

 

Please!

Since I like the idea of the poster, I've played a little bit with your Alley Cat low-rez scan (sorry, I also haven't the box). Maybe you like the result.

I'd love to see one done up with all the Infocom games!

 

Something like this backside crop of the 'Masterpieces of Infocom'-Box?

Thanks for the effort! I still have some (although diminishing) hope that an owner of the original packaging will appear. If you want a copy of the work-in-progress poster, let me know.

Funny you should mention this...

 

I have been working on an Infocom version with scans taken from my own collection. I had quite a bit of trouble deciding the layout. First kick at the cat was simply alphabetical:

Next I tried chronological:

My current favourite is by Genre:

In the time since I posted (and forgot about this) I did find a copy of Alley Cat - I should update my poster!

 

Would be nice. Mabye you can exchange also other box art on your poster with the ones from the archive - to get rid of the system stickers...

These are low rez versions compatible with AA's posting limits - if anyone wants a full rez version, please contact me directly.

Does anyone have the high-res files of this poster? The Synapse one, not the Infocom poster.

 

Can you please email me it? I really want to print one out professionally.
