    I will soon join to PSC users. And first thing which I really hate in this device are game covers. So I decided to make my own based on this one (but a little edited and recreated NTSC/U, NTSC/J and miltidisc PAL). :)

    Proof of Concept (two kind of PAL: early revB and late):

    It's a really neat little system that gets a lot of hate. Admittedly I haven't turned mine on since the release of OTG and NDS support was added but I have spent countless hours with it upon launch.

    RetroArch PSX Case Pack

    This package contain cases + covers for in my opinion the best PlayStation games ever released (currently only in PAL region). The goal of this project is make them as much as possible realistic which means using as much as possible the same aspect ratio, the same stamples in the same places and in the same cases (which was two of a kind back then). All covers are edited to remove original stamples (thanks God for content-aware fill! ^^), scratches, dust etc. and some resizes and/or cut a little due to (in most cases) very low quality of scans.

    Original case template was made by imLeeRobson. I changed light direction, split light from global to PlayStation bottom bar and cover (which is unrealistic but it looks better in most cases when we dealing with bad cover scans, this decision broke my heart, believe me ;p) and change high of bottom bar (it is thinner now, leaving more space to game developers art). Additional, I have created also three and four disc cases.

    psx_case_templates.png

    All images are made for RetroArch or similar frontend/emulator which using 512x*px bitmaps but could be easily adapted to i.e Bleem in PlayStation Classic, just resizing and filling missing power of two space.
    Also, in future releases I will add a shell script for renaming bitmaps for RetroArch disc images nomenclatures (I'm creating playlist always by hand so I'm using different and IMO more informative way).

    This cost me a lot of work so i hope You will enjoy it, especially that it is rare to find PAL 2D cases as most peoples choosing NTSC/U. If You need some additional covers, You can use empty templates or ask me to do it.

    You can use it and/or modify it in any and only NON-commercial projects.

    All the games on PS1 I ever played were PAL so this is useful for my covers. Thank you @Berion :)

    Thanks. ^^

    I have found one more interesting case. Limited edition of PAL's Total NBA. It is a cardbox too, but with glued rubber. I cannot resist to work with it. :) I'm not fully satisfied but there is no scans on the net, and photos are taken from some angle. This was the hardest case of all covers/boxes which I made for this collection (removing damages, perspective corrections, colours tweaks).
