Hey, don't worry: you can alawys discard them... no problem.

But FYI here is what they are:
Both are just the jewel case inlays (front & back); Campaign has also the CD picture. That's all.


BTW: some questions
a) I saw a walkthrough by Crash in one game on Site. Assuming that T. Henrik is not Crash (although it could happen...), does it mean one can/should offer walkthroughs, manuals, covers made by others? and if so, what would be the difference between that and screenshots and or old reviews?
You see, I have stored along the years quite some stuff, and just would not mind to share. I just need to understand what may be of interest for Abandonia... and or how should I pick the "right" stuff... so far not totally clear to me... (I mean, beyond what i've been doing, of course).

b) This way I should also ask, what about a cover image, which I lost trace where it came from, years ago, of Amazon? and the same happens with others, be them screenshots, reviews or walkthroughs (some old, some unidentified,)
Thanks

Our policy is not to accept stuff taken from other sites. Material like walkthroughs, guides need special approvement from the author of those specific guides before being uploaded on AB.

Material like boxshots and manuals should not be taken from other sites, even more when talking about reviews and screens. These should be totally original, made by you.

Just think about it, how fast is your material uploaded? Very slow. Thus we aren't in a hurry, there is no need to upload stuff taken from somewhere else because it won't really improve Abandonia with much. If one possesses normal google skills, he can easily find boxshots or manuals uploaded somewhere else, not necessarily on AB. We primarily need material that is impossible to find on other sites.

Here some more boxshots:

Crime Time
Crime City
The Scroll
I. M. Meen
Dark Seed
Dark Seed II


As for the AB policy, it seems allright to me, but the more I dig on the site the more cases I find: manuals and walkthroughs taken from other sites.
It was the case I specified in my 1st note on this topic - contrary to AB policy - that made me re-ask questions, in first place. The substantial number of other cases, I've been seen meanwhile reinforces the logic of those doubts.
So, if there is any rush, it sure is not mine... (where is that idea coming from?) :wondering:

Specifying which ones are taken and from which sites will make us investigate the respective cases, and if it's true the files will be removed from site. Any suspicion, complemented later with proof that your material is taken from somewhere else will force us to immediately remove yours too, so don't worry about it.

There's also one point to understand. Some files on the site were uploaded here with approval from the original author. This is the case mostly with some walkthroughs and guides.

Nope I have no reasons to worry, but it looks like you are more worried with what I might do, than what was done already...
So there is no point anymore, no further comments.
