Sorry, Gamnos.  Missed your initial post.  There actually shouldn’t be too many box covers missing now, since that’s been one of our major projects of late.  But if you have more, you can shoot them to me by email (jackal[at]adventuregamers.com)

Screenshots have slowed down of late, but not entirely.  A reader named Veronika (whom I believe is a forumite but can’t be sure) topped up our Last Express and Starship Titanic pics, and HandsFree has given us our first selections for Harvest and On Assignment.  Plus AG’s own TimovieMan and Advie are keeping our LucasArts and Sierra classics looked after.

Still lots of holes left, so don’t be shy!

Thanks again to everyone who’s contributed (and sorry if I’ve forgotten anyone along the way).

I’ve fallen way behind on my acknowledgements, but we’ve had lots of great new additions since the last update.

Advie’s been the busiest screenshot hunter of all, providing us with pics for Adventures of Valdo and Marie, Alice: An Interactive Museum, Camelot Galway, Cameron Files 2, CHAOS Continuum, Crusader, Daedalus Encounter, Drascula, Dust, Eastern Mind, Egypt 2, and The Exchange Student 1 and 2.

Fewer in number, but no less appreciated are Kasper’s contributions for 7 Days a Skeptic and Broken Sword 2 Remastered; HandsFree with a great selection of Clandestiny amd Guilty screens; and a reader named Bryan for a wealth of Entombed pics.

Our very own TimovieMan has also been busy, filling out our (previously) woefully underwhelming galleries for the likes of Day of the Tentacle, Discworld Noir, Flight of the Amazon Queen, Grim Fandango, King’s Quest 5 nd 6, and Monkey Island’s 1-3.

I don’t think I forgot anyone, but if I did, I apologize (and feel free to remind me; there’s always next time!)

Keep ‘em coming, folks; all are appreciated.

I’ve fallen way behind on my acknowledgements. Not because there haven’t been any new contributions, but because Bastich’s latest batch included a whole bunch of games I’d never even heard of! Who knew that this request would lead to so much homework? Tongue

The many new games provided by Bastich include: Amnesia (1986, not the new one), Arazok’s Tomb, Bargon Attack, Black Sanctum, Bride of the Robot, Bud Tucker in Double Trouble, Calixto Island, Chop Suey, Cracking the Conspiracy, Creature Crunch, Crime Time, Curse of Enchantia, Dare to Dream 1-3, Demon’s Forge, Demon’s Tomb, Dylan Dog: Through the Looking Glass, Emmanuelle, Fool’s Errand, Geisha, Ghostly Desires, Hollywood Monsters, Igor: Project Uikokahonia, In the Dead of Night, Knight Orc, and TKKG: Mahan Treasure.

Also helping us plug some much needed gaps was Sabacc, who grabbed screens for Clue Chronicles: Fatal Illusion, Fable, Mummy: Tomb of the Pharaoh, Return of the Phantom, Star Trek: Judgment Rites, and Thorgal’s Quest.

And last but not least, AG stalwarts Advie and TimovieMan helped beef up our woefully-underwhelming galleries for Gabriel Knight 3, Gobliins 2, Syberia (Advie) and Escape from Monkey Island and Space Bar (TimovieMan). And someone sent me pics of Journeyman Project 1 and King’s Quest 7, but I forget who (sorry about that—I know, I suck).

So, that’s another 38 looking good. As always, thanks to everyone who contributed. 

Still lots of games left.

I’ve been snapping some pics while playing now (unfortunately not from games that have 0 pics or anything) and I’m wondering if I should do the pruning myself or can I just send all 30+ pics away and make Jackal choose? Smile

I also have some puzzle shots that might be just a bit spoilerish (on the puzzle solution mainly), but also being great as they do show what kind of puzzles there are. Nothing that reveals any major plot points or straight out gives the solution though. Should I add a warning with these shots so they can be skipped if it comes to that? Or just leave them out?

Okay, time for a long-overdue screenshot update!

Advie: Ankh, Black Cauldron, Codename: ICEMAN, Conquests of the Longbow, Crusader, EcoQuest, Gabriel Knight 1 (the original), Gobliiins, Goblins Quest 3, Gold Rush! (the original), King’s Quest 1 (the… well, you know), Laura Bow: A Colonel’s Bequest, Leisure Suit Larry 3, Pepper’s Adventures in Time, Police Quest 2, Quest for Glory 2, Space Quest 2 and 3

Also, someone sent me pics of Mixed-Up Mother Goose, but I’ve forgotten who. I’ll go out on a limb and guess it was Advie, who’s proven himself once again a champion of old Sierra, but if I’m wrong, please feel free to correct me.

As always, many thanks to those who have contributed. And yet, there’s still tons of games with skimpy galleries, so let’s not quit now!

Sorry, millennia, I missed this post until now. (These sticky threads don’t update properly with new posts. Grrr…)

For your first question, I’d say a little of both. If a pic doesn’t pass your own quality test, ditch it! But err on the side of sending too many than too few. Smile As for puzzle pics, that’s a tougher one. It’s probably best not to have pics that blatantly spoil puzzle solutions, but anything short of that is fair game. If you’re still undecided, send it along with an explanation of what it does/doesn’t spoil, and we’ll go from there.

Thanks to our diligent forum member Vaapku, we’ve had quite a few more great screenshot galleries expanded (and in some cases, started) in recent months. She alone has contributed pics for both versions of Nancy Drew: Secrets Can Kill, City of Secrets (so many secrets!), Opera Fatal, and the newly-released Tormentum (can’t have enough screen grabs of its jaw-dropping art).

But Vaapku did us one better by also roping her friend Urszula into the fray, from whom we got new pics for Atlantis 2 and 3, Reah, Rhem 1, Schizm, and Sentinel.

Thanks, ladies!

Score!

First up was diego, with some much-needed Toonstruck pics (community playthroughs, FTW!)

And then Sabacc dropped a motherlode on us with great selections for Hugo’s House of Horrors, Indiana Jones and his Desktop Adventures, Legend of Kyrandia 3, Myst 4, Mystery of the Mummy, Riddle of the Sphinx 2, and Star Treks 25th Anniversary, Hidden Evil, and A Final Unity, all of which had few-to-no images in their current galleries.

Many thanks, once again. And keep snapping!

Okay, time to catch up on screenshot credits once again.

Advie has contributed pics for the newer Black Sails and Stasis, while one of the welcome byproducts of wilco’s intrepid march through Legend’s entire catalogue is a set of much-needed screen caps for Gateway 1&2, Timequest, and Superhero League of Hoboken.

Thanks guys!

Plenty more games with skimpy galleries. Don’t be shy. Smile

Time for another long-overdue update! The new submissions aren’t coming in quite as fast and furious as they once were, but a few extremely helpful members continue to help plug the gaping holes in our database galleries.

This time around, our many thanks go to:

Vaapku (who, with help from Urszula was determined to come up with not only new pics, but obscure games even I’d never heard of before): 1heart, Dragon History, Hariboy’s Quest, Nancy Drew: Stay Tuned for Danger, and Soltys.

Advie: Ankh 2, Deponia Doomsday

Sabacc (who took time out from creating his own games) to provide us with much better image selections for: Blade Runner, Dark Side of the Moon, Gabriel Knight 2, Gobliins 2, Hardy Boys: The Hidden Theft, Inherit the Earth, Journeyman Project 3, Nancy Drew: Curse of Blackmoor Manor, and Zak McKracken FM Towns version.

Much appreciated, folks! And to all the rest, just a reminder that if you’re (re)playing old faves, please check out our image galleries for those games to see if they need some reinforcements.

This being Christmas, what better time than to express thanks for the gift of more screenshots. In this case, it’s particularly seasonal, because Sabacc (of Sleuthhounds fame) has been literally echoing the “twelve days of Christmas” with a host of new pics everyday! The latest gallery updates with his fingerprints all over it are Amazon: Guardians of Eden, Blackwell Unbound, Gold and Glory: The Road to El Dorado, Inca, King’s Quest I (SCI version), The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Serrated Scalpel, Pajama Sam 1&2, Police Quest 1&3, Space Quest 4, and Torin’s Passage.

Whew! Many thanks, Sabacc!

And definitely not to be overlooked, another very welcome pair of contributions from vaapku for An American Tale: Fievel Goes West and Timelapse. Yay! (And thank you.)

If you think that must be EVERY game stuffed to the gills with screenshots, though, nothing could be further from the truth. So please keep AG in mind when you’re playing through a game, and check to see if we have a healthy gallery for it. If not, you can really help us out!
