Okay, you're getting better kid. But there are still a lot of problems.

The front is simple text with screenshots behind it. I am glad you used a template from the resource section, that's progress. Now, this time you saved the file as a .gif, save it as .png.
The back is a simple gray background with text and one screenshot. Add some real backgrounds.

SonikMario00, I know you're eager, but next time you're working on a cover, start in the WIPs before it's posted to the main site. Follow what Ronthis has said in your previous box, and to get a better handle on Gimp, here's some tutorials link link

Good to see your using GIMP!

Just a few pointers: The screenshots on the front are stretched and/or squashed. I'm not sure if GIMP has gotten something like it, but most photo manipulators has an option when resizing images to keep the proportions. You'll need to use it, unfortunately.

But it's a good start on a box making "career"! ^^

You're making progress. Just somethings. Like Ronthis said, use a background on the back. On the front, there's a way to blend all the screens together, but I can't think of it right now. I think it would have been good with just one background on the front. On the spine, make the text sideways, not just going down. You're getting there and I can see that you're trying. Keep working and good luck.

the font you used is not good unfortunately. Also, try and take time to make your boxes, no-one makes a good box within 1 hour, they can and do take days to create. Also use the WIP section of our forums in future so we can critique before you post.

Gimp is also a good program your using. But tri taking your time and use some good quality pictures. The cover is only a screenshot with some Text on it. Your getting better thoe.
