I know there are the templates but I am just very very bad with graphics, every time I try to do something it's soooo awful. Forgive the english! :(

WTF!? 3 Double posts? Sorry but... I haven't done anything! D:

EDIT: If you can make a speed art or something like it and upload the making on youtube maybe I can copy it! :D

"*" - allready done

Okay, some questions left:
Some games you mentioned here, I cannot find (or at least don't know them). Those are:
- 4 in a row
- cannoo guru
- shotsim
- Virtual Jaguar

For the icons, which should be allready included try to find them. It's sometimes a bit harded, e.g. with "Mplayer", it's under "GNU Mplayer". "Temper" is one of the ginge apps, so look for it at "Ginge-ified - Temper", and so on. :)

If you'd like, you can also make screenshots (using this) of the games still missing an icon, so I haven't to search for some good ones.

I'll try my best, to make the pack ready :)

Hey, this looks really promising for your first try. :)

If you'd like, I can send you a cutted down .xcf of my icons, so you can see, how they are made. Or you can use the .psd by Thorax (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8904639/caanoo/gg1.psd).

Okay, that's, what should be changed:
- The big title ("Redemption" should be a bit more left, have a black 1px border and a 30% visible 1px shadow.
- The Description should be a bit higher (I think at least) and have a black 1px border, too. And there should be an gradient top-bottom from white to 30% black.
- The Background layer should have a horizontal gradient from Black to transparent

You could see those layers in my .xcf. BTW: Are you using gimp? I do (actually the german version), so I could maybe help you a bit.

Can I send it to you with an eMail? I don't like to upload it somewhere...

I can try to explain those Gimp funktions as good as possible. It's nearly the same for each icon, so learning it once and using it for every icon. :)

EDIT: Look my post above. I've made some progress.

I know this thread is getting a little old now but there are still some apps and games that don't have an banner or icon for them.  I would like to give it a shot.  I have GIMP.  Could anyone supply the .xcf config setting so I can start right away?
 
Also, what are the settings for the image to fade in from the left (around 25% of the way in) from black to the actual background image used?
 
Any help on the standardised settings would be appreciated.
