WANTED: Scans of box art covers from the Dizzy games

Postby Adz.M » Thu Apr 17, 2014 7:52 pm

I wanted to start a page on Yolkfolk that should have been done years ago.

Basically what I'm asking for is any scans of the Dizzy game boxes/cases, something like this but bigger and better quality.
At the moment, we don't have things like that hosted on the site.

If you have any scans of the tapes, disks, cartridges etc. I'll accept them too.

Hopefully if there's enough, I can start work on a new page on the site.

Hope you guys can help out.
If you have any scans, feel free to post them here. :)

- Game Cover scans
- Part 1
- Part 2

- Game Manual scans

I do have the c64 version so Spellbound in my loft, if I get time i'll pull it out and scan it unless someone else has it.

Got some promising replies on Facebook. One person even shared a photo showing his big collection of Dizzy games/items.

Any scans we receive or any links that get posted here, I'll upload them to the site's ftp and add them onto a list which will be appearing on the first post of this thread with your name next to it.

Keep in mind that I'm not online all the time so don't expect me to respond immediately for some days.

Thanks again, peeps. :)

I have a massive collection but no idea if our printer has a scanner or if it's connected. I'll find out tomorrow.

Bloody Nora, this is the busiest I've ever been in the Dizzy front for a long time! :v2_dizzy_lol:

Colin, if you have any more, could you by any chance post them on this thread instead of PM'ing me?
Since the scans will be made public anyway.

We already have a page for the Posters, but I may add your one's onto the page.

As the the manuals I've received so far, I think I'll do a separate page for those, keep them all apart.

Thanks so much for your help, keep em coming peeps. :v2_dizzy_cool:


EDIT: Colin's scans of the posters can be found here.

That's OK.

I should be expecting more scans from a few peeps from Yolkfolk's Facebook.

See what happens this week and then hopefully the site should be seeing some new pages before this month's Newsletter's published. :)
