LucasArts Collection on Ebay

I'm not sure if this is frowned upon, but I wanted to drawn attention to the fact I'm currently selling a large portion of my LucasArts collection on eBay.

Anyone who is interested, a list of all the games, guides, and other random stuff I'm selling can be found here.

Some of the more notable items are:

Original Complete boxed copies of:
Maniac Mansion
Zak McKracken
Loom
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
DOTT
Sam & Max Hit the Road
The Dig
Full Throttle
Grim Fandango
Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine
Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe
Their Finest Hour: The Battle of Britain

Official Game Guides for:
The Dig
Full Throttle
The Curse of Monkey Island
Grim Fandango
Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine
Escape From Monkey Island
Psychonauts

The Adventurer #2 and #12
The Dig Novelization

and... (although it hasn't been posted yet)

an original Grim Fandango Push Pal toy.

Okay, sorry for the blatant self-advertisement, and thanks for looking!

Man, if I had money...

Hey madmardi, would it be possible for you to scan the cover of Their Finest Hour for our games database?

Sure, I can scan the cover of Their Finest Hour. In fact, when I first bought a lot of these games I scanned all their covers... but then lost the files for some reason.

Is there any particular resolution you want... or any other scans for that matter?

Just a decent sized scan on the Finest Hour cover (and back, if you're feeling generous) would be really great.

scans

I scanned the front and back covers of Their Finest Hour and uploaded them at yousendit.com. They were scanned at 300 dpi, and are pretty clear, but if you wanted an even higher resolution I can scan at up to 1200 dpi, but the file size will be quite large.

If higher resolutions are desired, then you can get a lot more detail per byte using JPEG.
(Just FYI...)

PNG is the way to go for these.

You might think so, but PNG is only best if the file size is smaller (e.g. in simple diagrams or unaliased text), or if you care about exact reproduction - which is kind of moot if your image has come from a "fuzzy" source, like a scanner or a camera.
I'm a big fan of PNG when it's used appropriately, but I know when JPEG's best. This page sums it up well:

Actually though, having managed to download the images now, I can see the provided quality level is more than good enough. The file sizes could have been lessened, but that's just spilt milk under the bridge now.

If I had the money at all I'd bid on all of those items in a heartbeat.

Being poor is ****e


You mean the way the sea stays steady as a rock and the buildings keep washing up and down? Yes I thought that was odd.

I'm interested in a couple of these but mind if I ask why you're selling them?

In response to why I'm selling them...

First of all, I really rather not. But honestly, they are all sitting in my room in a bunch of boxes... where they have been sitting for the last 3+ years straight. It's gotten to that time where I need to get rid of a bunch of my old stuff that I tend to hang on and collect, as the number of boxes sitting in my parent's house has mounded up to an unmanageable amount...

But, anyone who took a look at the games I'm selling should notice that there is a certain series that I'm currently not selling, and no, it's not because I don't own them, but rather that I couldn't bring myself to sell my favourite series of all time.

Plus, to be honest, right now I could use the money more than I could use my computer game collection





Oh, and I just wanted to mention that the Grim Fandango Push Pal Toy is now up on eBay (has been for a few days now). It is sceduled to end on Friday evening.

Thanks for looking!

Hey madmardi Id like to get a scan of the front of the DIG strategy guide if possible?
There looks like there might be a little more detail on that than the game box itself. 600dpi and jpg would do fine.
many thanks! It might help put a little more detail into the astronauts suits on the poster.

The Dig Scan

The Dig strategy guide cover can be found here.

For the most part the scan is pretty good, but there was a slight bend in the one corner... hopefully it works
