18th July 2017
Updated a large selection of artwork with better scans and higher resolution images. The breakdown is 4GB for Arcade and Retro and 12GB for Computers and Consoles.
The total size of all artwork hosted directly on this site now stands at 234.5GB, with another 25-30GB of vectors and PSD's on Google Drive. The bandwidth usage for June 2017 was 52TB, with July already exceeding that with two week to go.
Such bandwidth is crazy expensive, so if you can please support the site with a small paypal donation it is very much appreciated :0)
7th January 2017
There will be a large upload of new artwork in the next week or two. I received a large donation of artwork before Christmas that myself a few others are currently going through and cleaning up.
Quite a bit of new stuff thats not currently on the site, along with some larger scans of smaller artwork already here.
3rd June 2016
After a lot of issues with our hosting provider we are back online and on a new host that can handle the size and traffic of the site(for all the drama, check out the Facebook Page).
There's also some new funky stuff happening on the back end of the server to speed up page and image loading times. So the site lives on, and lives on ad free :0)
The server back end has been upgraded to use PHP 7. This should really speed up browsing the site and things should feel a bit quicker to process.
Any bugs, let me know via the "Contact" page or PM me on the Facebook Page.
21st January 2016
The website backend has been redesigned(while the front end you see is more or less the same) and we've also moved to a new host. This will improve performance and also increase the amount of locally hosted files.
More updates coming soon
12th January 2016
The website design has been slightly updated to make it easier to find the different image sizes available while browsing image and image categories(while still keeping the simplistic and easy to navigate style).
Click the icon the red arrow is pointing to below while browsing to see what options you have(thumbnail,small,medium,large or original size).
24th March 2015
Quite a lot of computer and console covers/artwork uploaded to the site over the last few days. You can as always see any recent updates by looking for this small icon next to the folder and/or file .
I've also started to look into putting vector artwork on the site. I'm still sorting out a clean and simple way to do it, but in the mean time you can see some of what I have by browsing the "Vector Artwork" section or clicking on this link Computers and Consoles" section. Thanks to user VoicesFyc over on Retrovia for some cleaned up and restored arcade artwork(Arch Rivals, Buck Rogers, Night Striker, T2 and more).
I've also added a PayPal donate button as quite a few people were asking how they might help/donate to the site/me. I don't ask for anything to keep the site running as I enjoy getting this artwork to as many people as possible at no cost to them. But, if you want to buy me a beer or coffee the link is at the bottom of the main page and in the "About" section.
20th January 2015
Added 317 new high quality images to the arcade sections(thanks to retropete for the uploads) and replaced 1243 low resolution arcade images with much higher quality scans.
A few people are asking where the Ultra High Quality Arcade Scans are, please make sure to click on the letter you need, scroll down and click on the text "Click here to open the Google Drive with all of the "X" artwork". I'll clean it up when I get a chance and make it a bit more user friendly :0)
Any questions, please head over to Retrovia and ask away.

Currently processing 25GB of ultra high resolution artwork and slowly getting it sorted and uploaded to Google Drive(to be linked to the website). It should be available on the site over the next week or so in batches(some of it is already available in the Arcade section now).
