I've been a fan of the series since I was playing Hero's Quest badly on my friends 286 (or was it a 386, can't quite remember... been so long)... badly because neither of us spoke english at this point... or at least not very good english.. I have no idea how we got as far as we did... although one of the disks had an error on it, so I never got to see brauggi and most of the eastern forrest until much much later... but I digress.
I don't know how many of the people on this forum have any interests in adventure games outside of QFG (like the most magnificent new iteration of the monkey island franchise which i shall avoid mentioning the name of, less my first post on this forum ends up as some sort of promotional tool for the old enemy), but there is a guy over at the lucasforums named laserschwert that is putting out high res posters of monkey island using (from what I can tell) either 1200 or 600 dpi scans of the front of game boxes: http://www.lucasforu...ad.php?t=195492
Aaaaanyway, I'm sure most of you are following my drift when I remind you that QFG also has game boxes... with some pretty decent art on the front... boxes which can be scanned
to make a short story even shorter: I'm scanning in some qfg/hq boxes, and I am gonna make myself some posters to adorn my othervise sparely populated livingroom walls. anyone else be interested? I could probably also make some high resolution wallpapers if anyone wants any... the images I'm working with are roughly 8000*10,000 pixels so there should be enough to go around.
I'm making the final posters in the same format that Laserscwert uses, that is: 60*80cm @ 300dpi. If you want to use a different size then just resize and cut as needed If anyone has any comments or requests then please come forward
(And yes, I do feel ever so slightly guilty about stealing Laserscwerts 'format' for distributing his work )

(Some of you may notice a few things amiss with this wallpaper: I had to make one of the towers shorter, move the moon and move another tower to the right to frame everything given the 1.6:1 aspect ratio of widescreen monitors.)
2009.11.02: 2 QFG4 posters, as well as a somewhat rough QFG4 wallpaper.
