8-bit Cartridge Label Project

Recommended Posts

Other useful recreations:

  • Atari 800 ROM/RAM (CX801/CX853) card labels. Many of the units I see for sale have surprisingly faded/damaged labels.
  • Serial number labels.  For those of us who have damaged/missing labels - or want a new label after retrobrighting!  (Of course there's a potential for abuse, here, but that's true of all these things...)

Wow! Awesome labels, @Mr Robot! Is it possible to add some others games, for example:

 

- The Eidolon.

- Koronis Rift.

- Adept: Archon II

- Conan

- The Goonies

- Spy vs spy

 

I have converted some of these games to cartridge, and it would be nice to have labels for these games for anyone who wants a reproduction.

 

cheers!

@ZuluGula That's awesome, thanks!

 

Sure, I have converted:

1. The Eidolon.

2. The Goonies.

3. Conan: Hall of Volta.

4. Spy vs Spy for 400/800 and XL/XE.

5. Adept: Archon II.

 

The cartridge version of Koronis Rift was converted by @Wrathchild

 

Thank you so much!

Here’s a proof of concept of a reproduction label made by @Mr Robot . It was printed by a laser color printer on multipurpose paper (75 gr/m2) and with a laminated plastic protection.

And The Eidolon :) 

We both did it almost at the same time, using different methods back then. Nevertheless, I just did an ATRAX/Atarimax (bank 0) version, hitting my head on the wall doing a complete rewrite of the file system it had.

Here are some labels I threw together back then but seeing as the AtariMax dimensions are smaller than most, someone with better scans can easily make a better job.

Hi! I tried to learn some image editing tools to try, and I made this cover and label for The Eidolon. I used the cover from Mobygames to start and then reconstructing the Epyx logo, the Lucasfilm Games banner, the background, the bottom-right corner, and so on. These are the results:

Thanks to @Mr Robot for sharing the XEGS labels, on which I based The Eidolon label.

 

Cheers!

First Parker Brothers label, (The only one I actually own) and Astro Chase, now with rounded corners.

Full size versions on my website blah blah bla

 

 

Did I get the top Astro Chase logo up the right way? They didn't put a lot of effort into some of these labels did they? The box art is so nice and they just didn't bother using it.

@Mr Robot, looks good. Can we get a rounded corners here? First I thought that you got it wrong and made the label up side down, but it looks like Frogger is reversed compared to other Parker cartridges

Oops, the Archon II cartridge rom I attached is buggy in the fight phase. Here's a fixed one.

 

The reason behind that is because originally I used a simple XEX loader to run the game. But this time I decided to implement a faster custom loading process. Hence the bug.

 


Sorry if there was any inconvenience!
