    New uses for Amiga game boxart

    Have any of you put box art scans to interesting uses?

    I have recently been wondering what to put on my mobile as the main background image and today experimented with some game boxart and now have the original Alien Breed artwork on there, which looks great using the phone's black theme.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Why thank you!

    I imagine your mobile has a more C64 related theme?

    HA HA HA HA!
    This is the funniest post ever!
    I made a triumph daytona 675 theme for my old phone but it took ages and my gf almost disowned me cos i revised it about 50 times untill it was perfect. If i get started on an Amiga theme she will probably leave with my daughter. Then again, I wouldnt notice for a few days untill the theme was finished!

    I suppose these things are OK if yourr telephone's screen has enoughr esolution for you to actually be able to see what the picture is of.

    I haven't used boxarts, but I've used several Amiga graphics as backgrounds on my phones, such as Agony's menu screen, that helltrain-painting from the Interference demo to name a few. They really work quite well on the small mobile screens.

    The resolution on recent mobile screens has got a lot better and detailed art looks fine. I will take the nerd level one further later and take a photo of my phone with the Alien Breed image so you can see how it looks.
