  1. Good morning Dustin,

    I’m new to this website and really any similar site. Could you please direct me to the best way of scanning in manuals, cover art, strategy guides or anything else that may be needed here? I’m very new to this “concept” and I have not looked the site over yet as I’m here on my cell phone but I’m a completionist at heart so 99% of my games have everything and 95% of them are in perfect condition. I don’t know the proper equipment that may be needed nor do I really have any clue what I’m doing. I was born in 1979 so trying to recover all the games that I foolishly sold while discovering ones I missed from 2004 until present has been costly so while I’m doing this for myself I’d like to give others the opportunity to at least have access to something that may not be on the internet yet for whatever reason. My thoughts are that it may cost me some money but look at all the contributions & work (in one form or another) hundreds of thousands….more like probably millions of other video game lovers have done over the years that cost them time and money also. This is definitely a labor of love unless you can get $4.5m on a sweet Kickstarter backing! Lol.

    Thank you in advance for everything you do, have done and what I haven’t even discovered yet here. I hope the youth in their 20s, 30s or even still in school start to see the importance of preserving the past, not just on video games but everything…..and….hard copies! Maybe with enough luck, we can get these game companies to start remembering the importance and FUN of instructions & guides….I did find some fan made manuals on ETSY for the Switch. So freakin’ cool someone has done that – I hope it continues & these companies leave people like that alone who are just trying to help.

    I don’t have anything to do with that stuff but when I was younger, I was a good artist & my dream career back then was to be involved in designing video games. Maybe at 42, now is that time to rediscover that passion….. if only I knew where to begin!

    Anyway, thanks for everything!


    1. Sure! So I helped write a scanning guide at https://scanning.guide/ you can take a look at and feel free to ask me any questions. If you’re willing to scan in your collection that would be fantastic! I really enjoy the boxes and manuals and everything too obviously so if you can digitize more I’d love to see it. 🙂 Glad you are enjoying the site. You might also like to follow my internet archive uploads at https://archive.org/details/@hubz as it has stuff I haven’t gotten around to posting on this site yet.
