Well, I finally got it done.  I decided to follow along with UncleBob's idea of getting a map printed and so I got printed the first map of VGMaps.com, The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past's Light World!  It's 50 cm x 50 cm.

I chose this basic white Ribba frame from IKEA, 'cause just in case I do decide to print Alex Foster's Dark World map, I can get a matching frame that's black for it, and then put them next to each other or maybe on opposite sides of the same room.

Here's another shot...

*whistle* The final thing looks gorgeous now, doesn't it?

Some years back I remember Edge magazine (or was it their Retro special?) printed a 2-page spread that was a sizeable chunk of the Light World with a tiny credit in the corner. The reason I mention this: you can't appreciate how cool maps look printed until you see them close up. It somehow reinforces the "art-ness" of it compared to looking at it on a computer screen.



Of course, my wife would never let me hang something like that on the wall...

A couple months ago, NGamer Magazine included a poster with their mag. The poster had a LttP map on one side and Super Metroid on the other. I only know this because they contacted me for permission to use my SM map. (Granted it was only 24"x36")

Wileee, I can only imagine how large your Super Metroid map would have to be to still be able to make out the little details. It would not look as good or as colorful as the Zelda map, but it would be neater to me.

LOL, Maxim's comment reminded me of this from my radio interview with GameSHOUT.com.  Anyone remember this?  I can't believe it's already about two and a half years ago...



SJ: Do you ever find yourself printing out certain maps and, and making it into a big poster to put on your wall or anything?



JL: I've been tempted to print out my Light World for A Link To The Past, and it seems like a lot of people have expressed interest in a poster like that, but of course, you know, obviously, I don't have the rights to all these graphics, but it would be really cool to have a wall-sized poster of that.



SJ: (laughter) Definitely. Especially, now,

"Hi, honey! Um, look what I did to the wall."

"Oh, my god!"

I don't think that would go over well.



CM: (laughter) No, you'd get in trouble at my house doing that. (laughter)



SJ: (laughter) "Come on! It's Castlevania!"

"Whatever, you're sleeping on the sofa."

(OT) I once printed out a Rasterbator picture at uni (hey, free printing!) that ended up about 2x3m, and stuck that on the wall. It wasn't a videogame map, though (Rasterbator doesn't suit maps, just photos) and my wife didn't appreciate the geek appeal of the printing style...
