I've seen a few pages where the back of the boxart was displayed instead of the front.

Is there anyway to change this?

#2 Posted by Peewi (447 posts) -

I've noticed this too, but it seems like there's no way to change it. To take it a step further Left 4 Dead and Wario Land: Shake It has concept art instead of box art, even though the box art is found in the games's box art galleries.

  • thanks for the heads up guys.
  • currently, only staff users and our wiki moderators are allowed to set default images (for anything - games, characters, releases, franchises, locations, etc.) -- so you can either PM those users directly, or continue to post incorrect box art links in this thread.
  • good to note is that - if you are the first person to post an image for an item that doesn't already have any images -- that first image will automatically be set as the default image.
  • we are also going to start a project soon in which we are going to need the help of the community to crop boxart so that the platform creative is dropped. easy way to get points!

Can someone fix the default image for WoW: Wrath of the Lich King

I didn't know at the time that the first image posted on a game would end up being on the title page.

Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire displays box art for Pokémon XD. I have uploaded real R/S box art, but it'll have to be approved.

While were at it I am going to kindly suggest that when people post box art for games, try to find a high quality image of the box art.  It doesn't look so nice to have a ton of low quality fuzzy/faded box art scans :\

Sounds like my kind of plan. Hope you guys have some strict dimension requirements in mind to keep everything organized.

I hope they get box art sorted. I should say that when box art is uploaded, it should be assigned to the appropriate release too. I've seen pages where box art is uploaded but not assigned anywhere.

When I've seen that I've just assigned the box art myself.

Zelda's Adventure shows a gameplay image instead of boxart even though I added the boxart image at the same time. I guess I should have uploaded the boxart first.

Fire Emblem: Fuuin no Tsurugi (I uploaded the original box art on day one, it's been pending for more than 3 days now)

Also, Chun-Li has one very crappy image, which has nothing to do with her original art. Please, please change it.

Combat Ace X: Skies of Deception has the wrong pic.

Same goes for Lost Odyssey where both NTSC and NTSC-J box arts are present but none are used.

Also the box art for Dragon Quest VIII is using the PAL French version while other PAL version and other NTSC versions are in the gallery for the game.

Super Smash Bros Brawl has a very low quality box art. :(

Has a screenshot for box art.  Box art is in the box art gallery.

Maybe just have box art gallery default to the game page instead of the first image uploaded.

I tried uploading the Fire Emblem: Fuuin No Tsurugi, but it didn't work well. My pending images show my display picture instead. Sorry about that.

Hero Quest 2: Legacy of Sorasil got the wrong image as box art.

Maybe there should be a point limit which lets you update box art?
