lol I am aware of that, but my only concern at the moment is my Pokemon Green. As for the EU vs US boxes, I believe they are the same size.:) Thx for the tips, i am currently working with a 1:2 scale made with the actual box EU box size (not really sure if they are the same as US). I takes a lot of time to do everything just right, mostly because the EU box has a ton of text on it. But it think i did i pretty good job, is there any way i can send you the file? maybe you can give me some tips or compare it with your own work.My flat, unfolded box, at the correct scale did not fit on a standard 8.5"x11" piece of paper, the paper I believe was 8.5"x18" or something to that affect.Do you have any tips on how to get started? like how did you get the size right? i tried both measuring the object and creating a formula so the layout can be expanded to big sizes, but my trial file with 'The legend of zelda, links awakening' is still a bit small. And your comment on the file being very large makes me worried i'm doing something wrong.
As for tips, your best option, based on my experience, would be to work on a 1:1 ratio. Example 5" in real life = 5" in your drawing. Its easier then trying to work with any conversions, and since it's unlikely that you'll ever print the box larger then real life, its unnecessary to make the image scale-able beyond 1:1.
I would also hope that your using a rather powerfull graphic editing software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, or even G.I.M.P. You'd be surprised how many people consider M$ Paint a powerful graphics tool.
Personally, I used Photoshop and simply adjusted my canvas until it would fit all the folds of the box on a single canvas, at a 1:1 ratio.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask. If you need any help I'd be glad to take a look at your document for you and help you with an adjustments you might need.
Btw did you realise the basics of these files can be used to make fantasy pokemon GB versions? Like Brown (psyduck) or Pink (ditto) versions :).
I will PM you my email address and perhaps you can send it over, I'd be glad to take a look, I assume it's .psd?
